Firefox Live lets you open Firefox from read-only media as CD, DVD or .dmg. As Firefox doesn't support running directly from read-only media, solution (as Firefox Portable win edition) is setting the profile folder to the local user's temp directory. This folder will be deleted when user log out.

How many people would carry around a CD just for this?

You could need a demo CD/DVD for your customer. Or use it just for privacy, but remember that profile folder till remain on temporary folder till user log out from his account, elsewhere you need to delete it manually.

Yes, works as advertised.

Why on Earth would you want to launch Firefox (or anything) from a CD?

I would rather launch from a thumb drive...

Say you go to a place where you need to use a computer that's going to be open to the public. Firefox may not be an available option, so you're stuck with whatever they have available. They may not have the computer set up to delete your temporary files. They may have the USB ports locked out. There are a whole host of issues you might run into out in the world. I can see this as a good option to protect your privacy when you're using someone else's computer and may not trust the person using it after you're done.
