I want to update firefox on a u3 drive, but the updated versions are no longer available for u3, can I still update Firefox?


I am running Firefox 3.5.15 from my U3 drive, but can no longer do updates. Is there a manual procedure for updating the Firefox install, or do I have to use something like Package Factory for U3, and do a full package install?

Fixed the problem by:

removing U3 partition and formatting the stick.

installing apps from portableapps.com

works well as portableapps.com keeps updating the available apps.
