Primary password issue with the portable version.
I installed Firefox portable version on my computer A and B. I set up the primary password on the computer B. I found that I forgot the primary password yesterday. So, I deleted Firefox from the computer B. Afterwards, I copied and pasted the Firefox portable from the computer A to B. Everything looked fine. The primary password checkbox was unchecked, so I didn't need to worry about it.
However, when I launch Firefox on the computer B today, it asked me the primary password again. As far as I know, all data is saved in the portable folder and I don't understand why it happened. How do I solve this issue?

Dropa, the Firefox portable is basically the official build (permission to use Firefox name and logo) packaged with a custom launcher that allows everything to be self contained and is idea for things like usb flash drives and external drives.

I just figured it out. Thx!
To James yes I do know it's still firefox but that change from default to become a portable always inherently changes something in the load since it's not running from a O/S based system. And can introduce problem other then expected standard install common issues. That's what I was trying to convey.
