    I believe the applications store their data/preferences on the machine HD vs. on the local directory where they are being launched (that is why your Applications folder doesn't have your FF or TB data).

    You can probably configured TB to store your mailboxes and account info on a directory on the USB drive, and just make sure to clear all the personal info from FF upon exit (in the security settings).
