Re: Torpark if firefox already on computer
The problem with Torpark/Firefox running issue is that if you already
have firefox running, it won't load up the portable loader edition,
only spawn a new window of the one you are running. I plan to have
this problem fixed shortly.
The effect is that it is just like using your current browser, no
electronic condom whatsoever. So you have to make sure you aren't
already running ffox
