Which part of the firefox controls the installation directory?

I am not sure what you mean. My script asks you where you would like to install Firefox. You can install it anywhere you like, on the system drive.

Hello,

I've just tried using your maker and it doesn't work on an non-english system.

After 2 hours 1/2 looking for some error in the code, I realized that it was just a problem of "localization" : I've replaced all the "True" used in tests by the value True, made the same for "False" with False and it seemed to work.

On my system (I'm French), the value True returns a string "Vrai" so it never satisfied any conditions.

Then I've had an error when the script tries to close the file copyfiles.txt in the Sub WriteTheInf. The object opened is objFile, not objTextFile01 like in Sub PrepInf.

Now it works. In fact I hope so, I've not tested the result during an installation for the moment.

Thanks for this tool.

Localization is next on the list.

I think that I have found a way to do it. I will post soon.

***EDIT***

I have found a solution. As soon as tested, I will post.

Just wanted to say THANKS for this. I've used it several times. Firefox is essential program for me and the addons can be a pain to configure and add. This makes it all easy. Brilliant job Jonny!

I love this addon but have a small feature request.

I'd like to be able to have all addons in the installer it makes, not just those that are enabled. Currently it fails to pick up (I think!) the disabled addons. I'd like to be able to install but not activate some addons.

I'm not sure what you mean. I believe that all extensions are copied into the addon. I would have to look at extensions that are disabled and see if they are being recognized in a new install.

I'm pretty sure it only copies installed/active extensions. Ideally I'd like it to copy all and preserve their active/disabled status.

Update Posted v0.516

v0.516 - 1-19-09

-added reg settings to clean most common registry entries of previoulsy installed Firefox versions prior to installing Firefox and after uninstalling Firefox

-fixed issue with right-click\install of "True" addon not copying firefox.inf to %17%

-added additional Ayakawa Versions

-added French language translation

-began cleaning up logfile

-fixed issue with extensions when there are 2 versions of the same extension on the system, the older version would be installed

-resolved (not fixed) issue with Ayakawa version 3.1b3pre crashing. This version is not compatible with the Vanilla 3.0.5 language files. The language files from Vanilla 3.0.5 are causing the crash.

-fixed issue when downgrading from 3.0.x to 2.0.0.x would cause crash in pigfoot version

-no longer copying unnecessary components

NOTES:

Ayakawa's 3.1* still not working

If set as default, the shortcuts on desktop and quicklaunch will be created automatically

I have not added the Foxit Reader plugin.

That is all that I have time for right now. I hope that I have fixed all of the bugs.

When copying files from your system, it copies all extensions as long as they are one of these places. They are the firefox\extensions folder, the profiles folder and the profiles\extensions folder. The file "extensions.rdf" stores all of the registered and unregistered extensions and there location. If this file is not present when Firefox starts up, it will scan the extensions folder and create a new extensions.rdf file. Currently, Firefox Addon Maker does not copy that file, so it is not present the first time that Firefox is run. Therefore, it creates a new file with every extension being registered.

I will add an option to keep that file in future. Or, if you do not want to wait for another update, you can PM me and I will tell you what to do.

I can wait (thanks). Its really a great product.. I'm totally a Firefox user now and having a custom installer is just what the doctor ordered. I'd struggle to think of much else you could add to this.. maybe a v1.0 Release should be close?
