I have built an emergency recovery boot disk using MAKE PE3 - 48 and P Start to enable the use of portable programs after booting into the recovery environment. I have successfully used Firefox Portable up to and including version 28.

All Portable versions since then up to the latest Version 35 will not start. All display the error that they cannot load XPCOM.

These same Firefox portable versions will, however, start in the normal Windows 7 Ultimate environment on all of my computers, however, in the MAKE PE 3 environment, on the same device, they will not.

Firefox Portable is a 3rd party application, not released by Mozilla. I have it installed myself to keep up with changes in it and how it differs from the official Mozilla version, but don't know enough about it or anything about MAKE PE 48 to be able to help you.
