Give a tip

clean and overwrite install of prortable versions seem to function different.


Recommended Posts

When I upgrade portable version, I always unzip all files and folder in zip file into the folders of previous version. It mostly runs well except sometimes I will find it runs abonormally. For example, this time, I open this yahoo page: https://tw.news.yahoo.com/直播/亞旭電腦確診數暴增-陳時中下午-2-時記者會說明-024406489.html , scroll down to middle of page to leave some post, normally when I start typing some contents in the text box, the words on bottom rightmost will turn to blue and become clickable (this word means posting). However, It stays disabled (the word is keeping being light-grey color).  If I use clean install (Unzp new version into a clean new folders), it runs correct.

What's wrong with my overwrite install method? What could cause the different behavior? Is there any way to fix it?

p.s. The version is always newest. This time it's 6.1.3.1300.

Hi scottchu.tw, did you install any extensions? Could you try to disable all the extensions and try again to see if you experience the same issue?

I used to update my portable version the same as you.

Now I unzip the new version into a new folder and copy and paste the User Data folder from the old version into the new version.

Thanks, I would try your way in the future.

Share A little experience about this issue: I happen to find if I open this url (actually almost most of the articles on Yahoo) and close it, then I reopen it again(or just refresh), mostly the posting can be worked correctly. Intriguing.

I find that I have to give up my Userdata folder and then things can work normally.
