Firefox Portable automatically loads plugins that exist on the host system. It probably doesn't make much of a difference, but I would like to only load plugins that I have added to my FirefoxPortable\App\DefaultData\plugins and PortableApps\CommonFiles\ folder.

In about:config, I see that there is the plugin.scan.plid.all preference, but that does not remove all the plugins.
