FFaM v1.0.2.11

Updated 23 July 2012

It can be frustrating to manually reinstall Firefox with all its extensions, themes, personas and other add-ons. Even for those administrators who need to deploy Firefox on hundreds of network computers will find it a cumbersome task to do it manually. To assist you in building a silent Firefox installer with all of the settings preset, here is Firefox Addon Maker.

Features:

[*] This is a application written in C# that will create a silent installer.

[*] The addons and installers can be created in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit.

[*] The addons and installers can be installed in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7, 32-bit or 64-bit.

[*] You can create an installer with all of your settings intact, an installer with no modifications. Or, anything in between.

Choose From:

[*] Mozilla Firefox usually has 3 versions posted, the Current version, the Previous version and the Beta version.

Options:

[*] Insert personal items, such as: bookmarks, passwords, cookies, history and preferences, extensions data and sessions.

[*] Insert other items, such as: extensions, plugins, components, searchplugins, dictionaries and modules.

[*] Disable the Migration Wizard that runs on first boot.

[*] Disable the Compatibility Wizard when upgrading versions.

[*] Disable the Crash Reporter.

[*] Set Firefox as the default browser.

[*] Use Resource Hacker on the Firefox.exe file and replace the icon set with your choice of a custom icon set.

[*] Create a Silent Installer that can be used in a live, RVM or WPI.

[*] Create shortcuts on the desktop, pinned to the Start Menu, in Start MenuPrograms, the Quick Launch toolbar, pinned to Quick Launch or a user selectd folder in Start MenuPrograms.

[*] Can create the "Pinned Apps" shortcut on the taskbar and Start Menu for some Windows 7 users (23 languages currently supported).

Customizations:

[*] Choose from any language pack available for the version of Firefox that you choose, this is dependant on the languages currently posted by Mozilla.

[*] Choose the current Firefox installation path (if you have more than one version installed).

[*] Choose to use your current Firefox Installation to build installers or addons, instead of downloading the same version to create the installer.

[*] Choose the profile to use to make the addon, it does not have to be yours. So long as you have access to the profile. The profile can be located anywhere in your system.

[*] Choose the installation path for the firefox installer. You can choose to install to any folder on the system drive.

[*] Choose the profile name and location. You can choose to create a profile of almost any name and place that profile in almost any folder on the system drive.

[*] Automatically downloads the current version of Adobe Shockwave (slim or full) Player and Adobe Flash Player 32-bit or 64-bit.

[*] Installs the current version plugins: Media Player, Office 2007 and Macromedia Authorware.

[*] It is completely uninstallable from within "Add or Remove Programs". It now uses the same installation process as the original files.

[*] This is completely upgradeable.

Installer:

[*] It is not required to run the installer with 'Run As' Administrator, this is preset in the installer. If UAC is enabled, you will be prompted to allow the installer to make changes to your system.

Compatibility:

[*] Windows XP

[*] Vista

[*] Windows 7

[*] 32-bit or 64-bit

Requirements:

[*] M$ Windows .NET 3.5

[*] Internet Connection

Credits:

[*] Resource Hacker - Angus Johnson

[*] 7-zip - Igor Pavlov

[*] 7zsd.sfx - Oleg N. Scherbakov

[*] GoRC.exe - Jeremy Gordon

[*] Icons - KM7MK created a few of the icons and I created the rest from images found on the net. If, you created any of the images used in these icons, message me and I'll give you the proper credit.

Notes:

[*] Anyone that is willing to request additional options and functionality, must be willing to put in the time required to test those additions.

jonnyboy, your posting your awesome firefox addon maker is everywhere..lol, wincert, ryanvm and now msfn. Great buddy, keep it up

I want it to work for everyone, folks over at RVM rarely respond and the folks over at WinCert might be getting tired og BETA testing. :thumbup

Can't blame though. With all of the options it's getting hard to test every combination.

Ryans and wincert forums are great, but here you will definitely get more testers and help or advice on how to make it more better and definitely more responds.

good luck :thumbup

I wasn't putting anyone down. It is only with their help that the script has evolved to what it is now.

ok, i found a bug, when it comes to selecting user profiles, an error message pops up

" pref.js does not exist in the path xxxxx. The path is typically c:\document and settings\*username\application\data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\*choose*.default

even if i select this directory, it still pops up with same error as above (no pref.js even though its there). the only way is by copying and pasting the location address

C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\bapntcab.default (i dont why its bapntcab.default, instead of just default)

There is also a typo mistake when it comes to desired installation path. it says "if the addon folder doens't" it should be doesn't. lol

And also the message does not make sense, it says "if the folder doens't already i will need to create it"

i guess you missed out few words there :lol:

btw it seems like you removed those options of keeping or not the bookmarks cache, etc... (did not test it fully yet, but much more better and more compatible on vista compare to last few versions which had some bugs.

The options are there unless you select use defaults, then they are not.

I will check the Vista issue.

**EDIT**

I'm not sure why you are getting the error for profiles. Could you pm me the logs? thx

Admittedly, Vista compatibility needs more of my attention.

I have found the problem for this and I will be posting an update soon.

I'm working on x64 compatibility. I'm very close to having it ready. The addon will be installable in WinXP and Vist (x86) or (x64).
