Portable Firefox, a special build for using Firefox from a portable device (e.g.
USB stick), is presented in http://johnhaller.com/jh/mozilla/portable_firefox/.
I hope the experience from this package can be used to provide a stand-alone
build from the official site. This could be marketed as a solution to people who
want full synchronization between their home and work browsers, and could even
generate revenue from selling pre-installed USB sticks or the like.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
By the way, it would be great if it could contain several OS specific versions,
and all of them referenced the same profile.

We have no plans to invest in this - third parties have done a decently good job of addressing demand.
