Setting Up PirateBrowserAt this point, PirateBrowser is Windows-only, though I'd be surprised if Mac and Ubuntu versions aren't on the way. As you might expect, one way to get the new browser bundle is to download it from BitTorrent, but you can also simply download the installer as a self-extracting archive. The download is just 29MB, but the Pirate Bay server I downloaded it from was quite slow (taking more than an hour!) so you may be better off taking the BitTorrent route. Also, Internet Explorer's SmartScreen Filter flag's the download as unsafe, so you'll have to bypass that protection if you want to proceed.
The first thing that happens after you finish downloading the archive is that you have to expand it with the included 7-Zip extractor. No setup wizard runs, the files will simply be placed in a folder on your system, by default at Downloads\PirateBrowser 0.6b. That version number indicates something that I haven't heard mentioned anywhere: The browser is still beta! In other words, your mileage may vary. Use at your own risk. But we can still review it, since TBP has put the software forth for public consumption.
I do not want to install the most recent Flash Player plugin PORTABLE version because I've read about problems with it and that's the only version that this Firefox ESR will give me the option to download and install when I try to install the needed Flash Player plugin through the browser.
I ran into the same problem with the version of Firefox portable I tried. I ended up ignoring the folder (with the text file) that they provided and created my own "plugins" folder alongside the firefox executable.
2) Since portable apps can work from a Flash drive and they don't work from or see the many system files that are contained in system software and 3rd party plugins, like Flash, usually they contain their own plugins if they need them, such as the Flash Plugin that this PORTABLE browser is asking for.
4) And when I installed my newer normal Firefox browser (not the portable version) over the previous one, it didn't need to have the Flash Player plugin re-installed... it just saw my existing Flash Player plugin... but this PORTABLE Firefox ESR is not seeing that existing Flash Player plugin v 188.8.131.52 like my other regular installed Firefox is.
And for a minute or two, I thought it was working. In my first tests in the PORTABLE Firefox browser I'm testing with, it was actually playing some YouTube videos, but then I found that not all YouTube videos apparently rely on Flash to play... apparently some do and some do not, and I found that most of them do require Flash to play. I had tested with some of my own videos that I uploaded to YouTube in the past in my first tests today and they played just fine, but then I started testing with some other Flash YouTube videos and they would not play and I got both the yellow bar at the top of my window telling me to download and install Flash as well as the red banner across the video player that told me I needed to install Flash.
So to spite everything, I tried actually downloading and installing the newest Flash Player plugin, 11.4 something, (which I was trying to avoid) through the browser, and that only proceeded to overwrite my Windows system Flash Player plugin and it DID NOT place any Flash Player plugin files in the PORTABLE Firefox plugins folder.
The version of the portable Firefox app that I'm using is the Tor-Firefox ESR 10.0.7... this comes specifically with the Tor web browser software package that also includes and works with the Vidalia control panel. This software works together and this portable Firefox ESR browser has some specific Tor browser controls in it, so I don't have the option of using whatever version of Firefox portable that I want to, as you are recommending.
See the screenshot below showing the Tor-Firefox ESR 10.0.7 Portable browser requesting the Flash Player with the Flash Player download panel that comes from clicking the "Install Missing Plugins" button at the top of the browser page, along with the Firefox Portable plugins folder window showing the plugins that are installed.
I downloaded TorBrowser and I was able to call it without any problem, with the following code (it's Mac OS).So I think there shouldn't be any problem about compatibility between the firefox webdriver and the latest version of Tor Browser.
Please note that your Tor connection is localized to the Tor Browser. If you start torrenting or downloading other files outside of the browser, it uses your regular internet connection and your activity will remain open to your ISP. If you want to protect all of you incoming and outgoing internet traffic, you need to use a VPN.
