Thanks for report, is a known issue, I hope to solve it soon.
Also History menu is missing.
I just updated FreeSMUG Chromium to Version 33.0.1750.152 (0) via Sparkles, and after restarting, the Incognito window shortcut [Shift]+[Cmd]+[N] no longer works.
The shortcut still shows up in Chromium's menu  ignore my inverted color scheme), just doesn't do anything anymore when using it.
Any idea what might be the problem or how to solve it?

If you haven't yet, I can just suggest to use last Thunderbird version inside Portable app.
Sorry I don't know any sort of terminal command to solve this.
I saw another thread below entitled "Portable Thunderbird hangs in Mavericks." I believe this is related to the same issue however that thread did not present an answer to this question. I also tried the terminal command someone wrote in that thread and it did not work. Here is the problem clearly:
As a part of the new security features of OSX Mavericks, it seems to run a "one time" check when you install new apps for things you want the app to access. In this case, it runs the check for portable thunderbird to access contacts and it asks me if I want to grant the application permission to access contacts. Normally, this is a one-time thing, but because portable thunderbird is "new" every time it is mounted on the drive, it runs this check every time. I found this out because I watch it appear and disappear from the privacy and security window under system preferences when I mount and un-mount. It wouldn't be so annoying except that running this check causes the app to hang a while, sometimes for a few minutes, before the dialogue window pops up and I can make the choice, after which it runs fine.
Any ideas on a work around for this? A terminal command of some kind?
Thank you, worked this time, much appreciated!
P.S: Just for security reasons, if you are using Safari, go to Preferences -> General and uncheck "Open "safe" files after downloading".
Probably something goes wrong during download. Try download it again.
I've just download it twice and it works.
Hi all, long time Linux user, new to Mac, trying to install FreeSMUG's Chromium but getting the error:
The following disk images couldn't be opened:
ChromiumOSX_33.0.1: no mountable file systems
This is from the Chromium here: www freesmug org / chromium
Any suggestions of what I might be missing/doing wrong appreciated.
Try to manually replace old one whit the new Thunderbird inside the portable bundle.
Thunderbird application and Profile folder are inside the bundle:
Open the bundle with ctrl+clik on it and then "Show package contents"
Oh, I'm using 10.8.5 on an iMac. Portable Apps running on a Sandisk USB-3 stick.
I'm using Portable Thunderbird for Mac from FreeSMUG
It's at version 12.0.1 and it downloads updates, which always fail to install when rebooted.
I'm having an issue when I sort my mail, with 5 mailboxes.
If I delete one e-mail, various others vanish, or re-appear in my unified in-box.
Deleting another e-mail, will do this again- a previous "vanished" email may reappear, it may not. Another e-mail may vanish. Sometimes, deleted items re-appear in my unified in-box.
This also happens in the individual account inboxes. It only seems to affect the most recent items, the few days or so. Nothing older.
The mails are not actually gone, or deleted. It's just that Thunderbird is getting confused on what it should show, and what I have deleted. It's driving me nuts, really. Especially when I get new mail, and delete a piece of junk, and then something I NEEDED to respond to is just nowhere to be found.
I'd update the app if I could. It has downloaded the 24.2.0 update numerous times, but it never installs properly.
"The Update could not be installed (patch apply failed)
How can I sort this out?
Sorry, I've no plan to do it, but someone other maybe can.
Is there any possibility to create portable version of Tunnelblick VPN Client?
I have the same problem to. Does anybody know if a patch for this issue will be developed?
I tried doing the shell script, but don't know my way around apple scripts enough to get it to work. It always tells me "identifier" can't follow after "identifier".
I put it in a new file like this:
open -a /Volumes/MY_MOUNTED_TRUECRYPT_PARTITION/Portable Thunderbird_3.0.4/Portable Thunderbird/Contents/Resources/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird —args -profile /Volumes/MY_MOUNTED_TRUECRYPT_PARTITION/Portable Thunderbird_3.0.4/Portable Thunderbird/Contents/Resources/profile
Anybody know what I am doing wrong? Any hint is appreciated.
I had the same issue and I can explain better the situation.
The portables app (all from smug) do not hangs. They are been sandboxed by security and privacy feature of maverics. Just wait some minutes and a pop up will ask for access to contacts.
The problem is that this behavior will appen every time you launch the app.
The strangest thing is that in the 'security and privacy' section you will notice only one app active. With strange name, not forcibly the name of the app you have launched.
I've tried to check the script inside the app and the problem is not in there, it's the wrapper that creates problem.
I've made a workaround to execute thunderbird anyway: an applescript that does the following:
do shell script "open -a /PATHTOTHEAPP/NAMEOFTHEAPP.app/Contents/Resources/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird —args -profile /PATHTOTHEAPP/NAMEOFTHEAPP.app/Contents/Resources/profile"
I hope the bug will be fixed, otherwise the app are not usable.
i have the exact same conditions, have tried on mountain lion tb portable works flawlessly, connect it to osx mavericks and it checks for emails and then freezes and need to force quit. tired it multiple times on mavericks and it crashes.
apple app security setting are "allow from anywhere' and its a clean fresh install of mavericks. so it has something to do with how mavericks handles tb portable as the tb portable usb works fine on another earlier version of osx.
I've tested a new Portable Thunderbird on Mavericks and it open. I just try it as RSS reader and it works fine.
Have you last version of Thunderbird or of Portable Thunderbird? Just download Thunderbird from Mozilla site and then copy it inside the portable app bundle. (Ctrl Click->Show package contents).
Do you allow software form anywhere than only identified developers? Check in System Preferences Security & Privacy.
All your mails are inside Portable Thunderbird app, don't thrash it. At least you can copy your mails from inside the app bundle to your hard disk.
Have you any message in Console (Applications->Utilities->Console)?
Last night I upgraded to OS X Mavericks. I should have waited: Thunderbird Portable (latest version) simply hangs…
Any other users face this issue? Any idea how to solve it?
Chromium 30.0.1599.69 released, 10.6 problems fixed.
I'll not go work for Google :-) but I think open source users deserve the stable release of Chromium.
