Profiles used by Portable Pale Moon

Unread post by 47mike » 2019-04-06, 01:06

Just discovered and like Pale Moon. I appreciate the effort that has gone into this by volunteer programmers.

I'm on Win7 32bit os and see a little odd behaviour with the PROFILE used by my PORTABLE installed Pale Moon.
It's a minor issue and may even be "driver error", but I appreciate any guidance. (I have used advanced forum search to see past threads on "portable profile", but could not spot any relevant posts.)

When I start PM from a shortcut I placed in my Start Menu, it loads correctly using the Default profile it finds here "D:\programs\PaleMoon\User\Palemoon\Profiles\Default" (my portable PM lives on D drive).

When I start PM by clicking a link in, say, an email, PM starts up using a profile it finds here "C:\Users\mike\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles\fqgt5w97.default"

Naturally, I'd rather it used only a the one profile, preferably the one in the same directory as the portable install.

How can I do that ?

Thanks

Appreciate your quick reply, Moonchild; I've read your link and understand the cause of the behaviour - file association pointing to the portable exe, which should not be done. Thanks.
