For those, who like to work without savefile

With small changes taken from an Ubuntu forum

Create a dir myplace/firefox-portable for example: /mnt/sdb1/firefox-portable
create a dir in myplace /firefox-portable named myprofile

Copy your existing dir /firefox into firefox-portable
create a folder in your /firefox-portable named myprofile

Go to your dir /root/.mozilla/your Profile for example /root/.mozilla/004567.default
Mark all and copy to /firefox-portable/myprofile

Create a script named loader.sh in root, ore where do you want.

#!/bin/sh
cd /myplace/firefox-portable 'this is where do you want to place your portable-firefox
"$PWD/firefox/firefox" -no-remote -profile "$PWD/myprofile"

and make it executable

Put a shortcut on the desktop
Set icon, whatever you want

By clicking the icon you can also save in the future your changes in Firefox if you work without savefile.
