Tell me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a variant of Firefox that allows users to save basically everything onto a portable disk so that you can use Firefox as you see it at home, bookmarks and all, without having to install the browser onto the computer you are using?

I remember trying out something like this ages ago and I couldn't get it to work, but now I want to try again, but can't seem to find anything on this.

. . . extend the life of your USB . . .


Will using this from my flash-based iPod degrade the performance over time?

It's awesome, man. I've tried all sorts of those portable apps, it's a wonder I'm not running it off the home computer. Works just like normal. Never again will I have to go somewhere to use a computer and get frustrated because of not being able to find links that I've bookmarked.

Unless I forget the thumbdrive... it happens... :bnghd:

Ok, any ideas on how to avoid this?



Pretty sure it's something to disable all .exe files from opening.

Is that your work pc?

Whats the Operating System? Xp? Vista? What does the event log say?


Security and software policies can be a bit confusing.

If you have permmission you can use the Group Policy Editor


1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
3. Expand the following items:
.....Computer Configuration
......Windows Settings
.......Security Settings

Select Software Restriction Policy



Do you have anything listed in there?
If you set Disallowed as the default rule, no programs are permitted.
If you set Unrestricted as the default rule, all programs are allowed to run.


But if its a corporate pc, it could be in the local security policy.

Yes it's at work, and it's XP. Programs in the start menu can run, such as Word and Paint and IE, but there is no Run button.

So there is no way?

Yes. There is.

For example, if you have access to a command prompt you can start the gpedit.msc from it.

www.xp-tips.com...
www.alanlight.com...

If you knew the administrative username and password you could hold the shift key + right click and select the RunAs option.

But as I currently understand the situation, I hesitate helping anyone bypass Corporate Active Directory Group Security Policy's or Company Local Security Policy's and settings.

I would feel terrible if you got in trouble at work.

IMO the appropriate method would be to negotiate with the IT department thru their HelpDesk for permission.

I am very sorry.

Ahh, no command prompt access and the IT dept. won't budge an inch. Thanks anyway though
