The operating system is Windows XP. I recently installed Mozilla Firefox portable on a flash drive. It seems to work fine. During the installation process, I was shown a long list of portable apps for selection. I only selected Mozilla Firefox portable, which was my main interest at the time with the idea that I could revisit this list at a later date and select additional apps. I would appreciate instructions on how to do this.

The default search engine is Firefox. I can change it to Google by typing Google's website. I would also appreciate instructions on how to make Google the default search engine, if that is possible on the portable version of Firefox.

Thank you

hi unfinished, sorry but the portable apps suite is a different third-party product not related to mozilla, so we're not able to provide support for it in our forums. if you have a question about it, please refer to their support channels at

firefox doesn't have its own search engine but is making use of certain default search providers to handle you searches. the way to change you default search engine in firefox is explained in: Search with the Firefox address bar
