    loading browser homepage from memory stick ??

    Not really an HTML question (apologies) but I run portable FF 3.6.12 from a memory stick because I flit from public system to public system (Libraries and Community Radio Station)

    I haven't fount a protocol/syntax that will allow the Browser HomePage to load automatically. My wishto homepage is in effect a favourites that includes a few data that you can't include in password features/bookmarks and displays in 3D and colour. And resides (not unsurprisingly) on my memory stick that no one else can use. Though I do use cryptic clues!

    So any ideas on command lines for IE &/or FF or Windows directives or whatever that would have my chosen homepage load when FF does? (non sprechen sie Mac).

    And short of apps is there a method of including the path of the "current" drive so that shortcuts do the same kind of thingy?

    I go now to FF Forum................

    TIA

    In Firefox just load the page then: Tools, Options, General, Use Current page.

    Or from the command line firefox filename.html.
