Solution

1- Download Zar2RTF from here:

http://dl.noorsoft.org/download/free/Zar2RTFConv.zip

Several other mirrors (disable your pop-up blocker so you will get the file properly. Please let me know if any of the following links are dead):

2- Use the software inside the zip archive to convert your Zarnegar files to RTF or HTML

3- The converter keeps the line-breaks of the original Zarnegar file by using soft return in Word. It can be edited out with finding and replacing all instances of ^l with blank (^l is a regular expression. So, make sure that the option for “Regular expressions” is checked in your find-and-replace dialogue box. Use \n in LibreOffice and OpenOffice instead).

Installing and Updating Portable Firefox Nightly

This is easy. You can do it in only a few steps.

Portable Applications (or PA for short) already has portable Firefox and portable Firefox Beta. A few other websites also create their own packages, including Nightly builds, to be installed in your portable app folder. But, PA does not support Firefox Nightly build. So you have to do it yourself.

There is a page on the PA forums that tells you what to do in order to install your own portable Firefox Nightly build. and here is what it says:

  1. Go to http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ and download the latest trunk in zip version
  2. Use 7-Zip Portable to extract the contents of the zip file
  3. Copy the contents from the folder firefox to [Firefox Portable Install Folder]\App\firefox

Just remember that PortableApps.com doesn’t support nightly builds, and there’s no guarantee that it won’t let any traces behind after you close it.
