How to change browser path?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it works for addons, but custom location will add browsers not in default location

For chrome based browsers replace FIREFOX with CHROME.  For opera replace with OPERA

The ability to see what extensions ("addons") are installed works for me with Firefox Portable ESR. It however does not work with Chrome/Chromium-based SRWare Iron Portable.

Unfortunately, the method does not work. :(

If you're attempting to add a browser using ccleaner.ini is probably the easiest way to do it in my opinion, you can do this by opening CCleaner and then go into 'Options > Advanced' and Save all settings to INI file, then look in the CCleaner program folder for ccleaner.ini.

Examples of how to properly map to a custom browser location (including portable versions of browsers):
CustomLocation1=FIREFOX|C:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortableESR\Data\profile
CustomLocation2=CHROME|D:\PortableApps\IronPortable\Profile

I did what you said. The browser I am using is 7 Star. Therefore I added the line below in the last row of INI file, but I still can't see the addons.

CustomLocation1=CHROME|C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\7Star\7Star\User Data

If 7Star is a Chrome/Chromium based browser is there not a Profile folder located in there for it? Usually the Profile folder is the path you want to point that CustomLocation to.

7Star is a Chrome/Chromium based browser, but there is no Profile folder.

C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\7Star\7Star\Application
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\7Star\7Star\User Data\Default\Extensions

Based upon that then and since I notice you've listed that it has a Default path pointing it to User Data should be enough, but with it not working using CustomLocation perhaps Piriform will have to officially add it into CCleaner for it to be properly supported.
