Doesn't have any answer to what #47 asked, but to #48/#49: use Firefox Portable: <http://portableapps.com/a…net/firefox_portable/test> . It doesn't install itself in system. All files stays in one root folder. That means that you can take a backup of that before you make some changes. If the changes results in FF fucks up, then just delete that ones folder and use the one from the backup folder, which have the settings from before you made a change, causing it to fuck up. If you, like me, hate splash screens, then here is how to disable it: <http://thinkhole.org/wp/2…reen-in-firefox-portable/>

FF Portable isn't slower than standard FF who install itself in system. Same speed. I doesn't use any themes so don't know anything about that. But have read about this: <http://labs.mozilla.com/2…/12/personas-for-firefox/> . Maybe that is something for you. Cheers
