Is the version of Firefox available from Portable Apps created with the same standards of oversight and the same standards of security and testing as the regular version?

The current version of Firefox Portable Apps is (within a few days anyway) the very same Firefox as the current released version of Firefox. It will be to the same stardards since it is the same program. I doubt that being put the Portable Apps shell would cause any security problems.

In fact PortableFirefox *is* the same binary but packed in a special environment to allow it to run without accessing other computer resources.
