Support for FirefoxPortable web

I was wondering if there is a way to specify a different executable in the installation path for Firefox? I want to be able to launch Portable Firefox from Portable Apps. For reasons specified here, http://portableapps.com/node/3378 the portable wrapper executable (FirefoxPortable.exe) can be renamed anything BUT firefox.exe.

If this is not possible, how hard would it be to add another entry under Web for Firefox Portable .... that would be expecting FirefoxPortable.exe as the executable?

The goal is to have RDM, KeePass, xulrunner and Portable Firefox on a USB key. Many of the sites I have to access (firewalls and what not) use self-signed certificates which gens an error with xulrunner. The workaround for that is cumbersome and involves jostling certificates manually. So, the idea was that I could use Portable Firefox instead of the embedded xulrunner. First visit to the site, then I can store the certificate exception, which should follow the portable edition around.

Hi,
This is a good idea, I added it to my todo, this won't be hard to do.

Hi David,
Do you have this beta version also available in a zip file maybe, then I can extract it in my RDM dir.
