You can place your profile in a separate location (USB, TrueCrypt
archive, etc) and then start Firefox:
/path/to/firefox -no-remote -profile /path/to/profile
It still relies on some system libraries so it's not completely
self-contained, but leaves no trace in your home directory as far as I
can see, and should be portable given that the appropriate libraries
are installed where you need them.
