Why Firefox Portable invisible on Mozilla site?

Anyone know why Firefox 6.0 final portable is invisible on Mozilla?

Every time I want to get Firefox portable I have to download from some other site. Anyone have a clue why they keep hiding it on Mozilla? It's really frustrating!

I have Firefox 6.0 setup already. I was looking for a portable edition. For a long time now it seems it's always a struggle to get the portable edition. I can never download it from Mozilla. Always it's a 3rd party site.

Anyway, I tried it long enough to determine the window class name was not changed. My scripts will still work.

I took it off because it didn't like some of my AddOns.

I'm sure. But I didn't notice any real difference from 5 to 6 and 5 is working so why add headache? FF is only my backup browser now. I mainly use it to go to sites where I don't want to have to enable flash. I have all Plugins blocked in Chromium to avoid Sudden Loud Noise(tm) when going onto pages with audio I don't want or expect. Now and then it makes a hitch if the plugin doesn't fire right away.

FF is ok except it's so slow off the dime esp. if the disk is busy. I was running portable off a ram disk to get around that. But Chromium jumps off the disk even when busy if I open to a blank page. I just click Home or New Tab afterward to get Speed Dial. About the only AddOns I miss are SyncPlaces and CheckPlaces. But I can live without them.
