As I understand it the portable version is already modified by a third party developer. The portable version is based on Firefox, and I presume it thus inherits trademark & copyright controls from Mozilla/Firefox.

In addition to the link in the above post also see

You will note from the link in the first post that there are fairly heavy restrictions if you use the Firefox name and logo, and furthermore restrictions on what you must & must not do if you modify Firefox even when you do not use the name.
