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 than their private used browser.
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 instructions were created on a Windows 10 machine and in this case the OS default browser is Chrome but we want to configure JD to prefer a Portable version of Firefox for browser captcha solving.

1. Make sure that the new browser you want to use also has our myjdownloader addon installed - browser-captchas will not work without this addon (technical requirement, a myjd account is NOT required!).
You can only use browsers which our myjd addon is compatible with!

2. Find out where your new browser is installed.
In this example, it is located here:

3. Go to Settings --> Advanced Settings --> Search for: 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 in the following screenshot (do not forget the "%s"):

4. Continue using JDownloader - now it will use your custom defined browser to open browser-captchas.
