Pepper Flash (v. 18.0.0.209) in Chromium is the same as in Chrome.

In the latest version of Chromium Version 44.0.2403.125 (64-bit), when there is a video flash object embedded on the page, and the "expand to full screen mode" icon is pressed, the video does not expand to full screen. Rather, Flash goes into a 'full screen mode', but the background is black, and the video only appears in the top left hand corner with the same small dimensions as the original embedded video. The expected behaviour is the video expands to the size of the full screen. This has been consistent with every embedded flash video I've seen. I'm running OS X Yosemite 10.10.4. I took screenshots but am unable to post due to 'low-karma'.

Yes sorry, it was bad signed. Now is fixed, thanks for your support. As Sourceforge.net uploads are offline, get last build here:

Downloading the latest FreeSMUG Chromium build (44.0.2403.107) and trying to run it, I'm getting an error which says "Chromium.app is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash."

It looks like it's a codesigning problem. Chromium 44.0.2403.107 says:

It seems that Oracle Java 7 is only available in 64 bit version.
Chromium 64 for Mac is still in experimental version.

Anyway, what I need is to have both the browser and java installed on a usb stick without the need of any local modifications.
Does someone have some other browser to suggest? I also tried modifying Firefox to use Java from a defined path, but without success.

Sorry, don't know.
Try search on Google (I've found this) or Chrome users forum.

Re: Chromium with custom Java by CGandCGand, 19 Sep 2014 13:43

Can you specify to Chromium the location of Java to use?
I'd like to put them both on a usb stick so the structure would be something like this:

/stick/Chromium/
/stick/Java

So the Chromium would use only Java on the stick.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Chromium with custom Java by marko123marko123, 19 Sep 2014 10:34

I'm using Mac OS Mavericks and attempting to run Portable Thunderbird from a USB drive.

I've tried to open Thunderbird using the terminal command to set a custom profile folder path that exists on a USB drive located at - /Volumes/THUNDERBIRD/Thunderbird/Profiles/xai1druh.default'

I'm able to start the Portable Thunderbird app from a command line, (located in the path /Volumes/THUNDERBIRD/'Portable Thunderbird_3.0.4'using the command:

open Portable\ Thunderbird.app But when I attempt to pass Portable Thunderbird the profile parameters for the profile path using this command line:

open Portable\ Thunderbird.app -profile “/Volumes/THUNDERBIRD/Thunderbird/Profiles/xai1druh.default” Portable Thunderbird is not seeing the -p or the directory parm but apparently open is trying to parse it as another program or file to open.

I've tried multiple iterations to allow Thunderbird to see the parms but apparently I'm missing something fundamental.

In the path /Volumes/THUNDERBIRD/Portable Thunderbird_3.0.4/Portable Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/ there is a file, Portable Thunderbird, (without an extension), that launches a script that eventually opens the Portable Thunderbird app.
In the same package in the path /Volumes/THUNDERBIRD/Portable Thunderbird_3.0.4/Portable Thunderbird.app/Contents/Resources/Profiles which is the location of the default profile I'm trying to change.

What command line and syntax should I use to properly launch Portable Thunderbird from the USB drive to pass the profile parms to point to the custom profile on te same USB drive, my directory and object names seem different from your example. Thanks

FreeSMUG provides a Chromium distribution that includes the Sparkle auto-update framework. I'd like to build my own Chromium on OSX that uses Sparkle. Can anyone help me with instructions on the changes I'd need to make to the Chromium build code to make this happen?

Thanks,

Peter

I have downloaded numerous versions of the apps but they do not run on my iMac OX X v. 10.9.4. Can anyone help?

is there any way to update the portable thunderbird? the last in this version 3 and very outdated.
Anyone know how to create a portable app?

I am trying to copy an image to my thumb drive (originally formatted on a Windows machine). Do I need to reformat the thumb drive for a Mac? I also don't seem to be able to upload the image to cloud storage accounts.

Copying DMG to Thumdrive by mcnkldzynmcnkldzyn, 02 Aug 2014 18:24

Hello,

I'm reviving the topic since i've encountered the exact same problem : after upgrade to OSX mavericks, my portable thunderbird started to hangs forever on startup (I had to wait 10 min before it asked for contact permission and then open up)

I've found a solution by accident. So I have mavericks (10.9.3), portable thunderbird and it hangs. I had to used diskwarrior to rebuild the directory and on restart of the mac, portabe thunderbird opened up in a flash. Problem solved.

Cheers

EDIT : this seems to have worked only once for me, the first time after i restarted after the directory repair… after that, same hanging on thunderbird startup…. :(

Portable Firefox can be updated in the following way (according to this website):
"To update download last Firefox version and copy it in Resources folder inside Portable app bundle (ctrl+Clic - Show bundle content)."

Can I do the same with Portable Thunderbird, or wil that break things down?

Regards/Annan
