    Some enhancements, not much to brag about though.
    Page options in right click context menu, options run in tabs not in windows, a few assorted about:xxx changes.

    I can't believe this, After downloading 3.0 RC I opened it in it's own folder "Firefox Portable 3.0 Test", made a shortcut on the desktop and used it for awhile, then I synced it to IE bookmarks and after restarting computer it shows as 29.01. !!!

    It must have updated the version automatically, it tried to do the same with me. That test version is as old as the hills.

    OK, FF 30.0 showed up finally, In "About FF" didn't show update but I downloaded it and updated my standard installation and low and behold tho portable updated too. Wish it stops doing that, I guess it's because auto update is now default.

    Uninstall Mozilla Maintenance Service if you have it.

    Speaking of New tab Page, for some time now (not that I miss it greatly but....) I do not get the page opening at all when I start new tab. New tab opens blank page only.

    Check 'about:config' - 'browser.newtab.url', should be 'about:newtab'
    and
    'browser.newtabpage.enabled', should be 'true'
