I have 2 main problems:
I have a desktop running Windows 8 with 8 gigs RAM about 10 months old. I wanted to run Firefox on a memory stick, so that I can move it back and forth to my laptop and have everything available.
I started with Firefox version 28.0 Portable on a 32 GB USB 2.0 stick. It worked,
but slowly. I switched to a USB 3 32 GB stick & it made no difference in speed,
especially when bookmarking something. I do not have flash installed, so some
videos will not play, but lots do. Recently I updated Firefox to version 32.0.2
It cut the speed down a lot more immediately, especially when bookmarking. Also,
now it freezes every 3rd click or so & doesn’t do some things at all, like play
playlists in YouTube. It gets to the end of a song & just sits there trying to move on
unsuccessfully, or just plain stops.
Most of the time now, but not always, I cannot log into any of my e-mail accounts, & sometimes when I do get in, I can’t open individual e-mails. It does open in Internet Explorer though. I don’t know if it makes any difference or not, but I have a large amount of bookmarks. The file is roughly 22,000 KB in size.
After fighting with this for a while I had enough & went looking for something
else portable to try & found Midori. It is not real fast, but a lot faster than Firefox
has been & does play the YouTube playlists. My problem here is that when I
imported the FireFox bookmark HTML backup it only got part of it. I have been
trying to find where Midori keeps bookmarks but have been unable.
So, does anyone know where to find the bookmarks in Midori, so that I can
delete the contents & start again, or is my bookmark folder to large to move
successfully. Am I trying to run these portable programs on to0 small an
external drive or is something else wrong?
Thanks for any help.
