    Just download the tar, extract it to a folder, cd to it and run the firefox binary.

    I have spent the whole morning trying to get this to work but it's impossible, I have created a folder in a usb flash disk, with the extracted and profile files but when I launch firefox from this usb flash folder it opens my home system firefox profile.
    I can only get it to open with deferent profiles if I make the profile in desktop.
