How to use another browser than your OS default to solve browser captchas

By default, JDownloader will use your OS default browser to solve browser captchas.
However, some users prefer to- or have to use another browser to solve browser captchas.
This browser can also be a "portable" browser e.g. one which did not even require a full installation - this has been used in these instructions too.
Notice: These instruction were created on a Windows 10 machine.

1. Find out where your new browser is installed.
For this example, it is here:
C:\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe

2. Go to Settings --> Advanced Settings --> browser captchasolver browser commandline
Put the following in "Value" (replace my example-path with the path to your browser):

["C:\\FirefoxPortable\\FirefoxPortable.exe", "%s"]

--> All done, now it should look like this (screenshot):

3. Continue using JDownloader - now it will use your defined browser to open the BrowserCaptchaSolver.
Do not forget that you need to install the Myjdownloader browser addon in that browser too otherwise you won't be able to solve browser captchas!
