It has some specially-selected optimizations to make it perform faster and extend the life of your USB key as well as a specialized launcher that will allow most of your favorite extensions to work as you switch computers. It will also work from a CDRW drive (in packet mode), ZIP drives, external hard drives, some MP3 players, flash RAM cards and more.
To install, just download the ZIP and unzip it to the root directory of your USB drive. It will create a "firefox" directory and all the requisite directories underneath. To use Firefox on your drive, launch it with the PortableFirefox.exe file in the firefox directory. DO NOT launch the firefox.exe file directly, as this will create a profile on your hard drive or use an existing one. Additionally, be sure you've closed any local copies of Firefox and that they've finished shutting down. Otherwise, a new window of your local install will be launched. This is a feature of Firefox itself to prevent multiple copies running at the same time.
Mozilla Firefox - Your web, the way you like it: high performance, easy customization and advanced security.

Outdated Plug-In Detection
Some web pages require that you install small applications called plugins to watch videos, play games or view documents. These plugins are written by other companies, and it can be hard to make sure theyre always up to date. Since outdated plugins are a security risk, Firefox will let you know when you have a plugin thats vulnerable to attack and direct you to the right site to get the updated version.

Sometimes its nice to go undercover, so turn this feature on and protect your browsing history.

Its great if youre doing your online banking on a shared computer or checking email from an Internet café.
Customized Security Settings
Control the level of scrutiny youd like Firefox to give a site and enter exceptionssites that dont need the third degree. Customize settings for passwords, cookies, loading images and installing add-ons for a fully empowered Web experience.
Firefox looks for a secure connection before installing or updating add-ons, 3rd party software, and Personas.
Firefox integrates elegantly with your Windows antivirus software. When you download a file, your computers antivirus program automatically checks it to protect you against viruses and other malware, which could otherwise attack your computer.
