File name: FireFox 3.0.3
Description: Requires a writable %userprofile% directory, but the program directory may be on read-only media. This is no problem in VistaPE, since we know exactly where the %userprofile% will wind up and it's always writable with FBWF. In other projects, it's a little more tricky, and it's up to the user to ensure that there's an appropriate writable direcotry.

I've included the FireFTP, BugMeNot, FoxMarks, TabMix Plus, and FireBug addons. It will copy pretty much all of your settings (including FireFTP settings) if you point it at your settings directory. It is set not to use any disk cache.

Thanks a lot for this nice script JonF (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/worship.gif)

It works nicely with LiveXP, even without fbwf or bootsdi (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)

Thanks for the update!

But at me have some problem in LiveXP project, i.e. can not see my bookmarks came from the host computer.
Is it possible that the FirefoxLoader at first copies the files from the folder 'FireFox\Settings\Personal'
(the files that came from the host computer) and after it unpack your Settings.7z?
I mean if I do it manually: first unpack your Settings.7z than copy the files came from the host
there is no such problem.

No. The source code is in the file, but there's nothing to it:

CODE
$AppData = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders","AppData")

If Not FileExists($AppData & "\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini") Then
ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "\Settings\7z.exe","x -o""" & $AppData & """ """ & @ScriptDir & "\Settings\Settings.7z""",$AppData,"open",@SW_HIDE)
FileCopy(@ScriptDir & "\Settings\Personal\*.*",$AppData & "\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PE.User",1)
EndIf

ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\Firefox.exe")

It waits unitl 7zip exits before copying personal settings. I don't understand how your problem is happening.

My %UserProfile% is on drive B: (using ImDisk RAMDrive formatted as NTFS, not compressed, FBWF or BootSDI not used, so my %SystemDrive% is not writable)
but noticed in the folder '%UserProfile%\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\PE.User '
the files copied by the loader from the folder 'FireFox\Settings\Personal' are all Read-only.

A very minor thing,
Add_Shortcut,StartMenu,Network,,,,,%PE_Programs%\%ProgramFolder%\Firefox.exe
should be this
Add_Shortcut,StartMenu,%pTextBox1%,,,,,%PE_Programs%\%ProgramFolder%\Firefox.exe
