Look and see if the program you want to use it in sees it.  As I recall, when I install a firefox add-on, all copies of Firefox see it.  It's an extension so look in that category.

Hello list,


I tried to install Webvisum in a portable Firefox 52.x esr version, but
my computer decided to install it in the current Firefox instead.


I know it's a daft question, but how can I install it in the portable
instead?


I'd never had this issue before.


Thanks in advance, ciao,

Ollie
