[Tool] FFaM v1.0.2.11

202 posts in this topic

As proposed by Stoner81, I am attaching the log file of an offline procedure of creating an nLite add-on for Firefox 3.0.10. Hope it helps.

Edit (a month later): Any ideas?

I'm not sure on where the author of this application has gone, sorry dude!

As I noticed after a new install, Mozilla Firefox 3.0.12 (created with this tool) was installed in a folder named "Firefox" instead of a folder "Mozilla Firefox", so after I did an on-line upgrade to V.3.5.2, it installed in a "Mozilla Firefox" folder, which means there are two folders where Firefox is installed.

Now what? Can I just delete or uninstall without losing all preferences?

Thanks for any suggestions

When you use my tool to install Firefox, it installs into the folder that you choose, you are able to install it anywhere on the system drive. Yes, you can delete the older of the 2 folders, without concern, unless you have installed addos as "global" addons. Until a global addon is updated, it is stored in the installation folder, not the profile folder.

I finally have internet at home again, and I will post an update soon.

Thanks

True add-on didn't do the trick again. I'm attaching a small package (screen shot, LastSession.ini from nLite and the Log file from the Firefox Add-on Maker). Is this add-on made to work with nLite? I was looking at the Firefox entries.ini in the .cab file, and it's nothing alike the other add-ons I'm using.

Anyway, this was just another experiment; the switchless installer works superbly for me, and I will stick to it!

Thanks JohnnyBoy

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll look at it tonight. I may post another bug-fix before the new version is completed.

Johnny you've made an amazing tool. Respect!

I only have the same issue posted here above. I choose offline creation of the installer (silent installer not an addon).

Everything is OK but Firefox is installed in Program Files\Firefox instead of Program Files\Mozilla Firefox.

I cannot choose the path in your tool...

I extracted the created installer, modified the paths in the .inf file, hoping I found them all.

I tested by uninstalling firefox, removing the folder and all mozilla folders in the appdata of user accounts, then install again via the modified inf. Seems to have worked.

Compressed it and together with Olegs modified 7zSfx (and I also found your config.txt by opening the originally created installer in Notepad), used that to recreate an installer. With Reshacker I stole the icon from the originally created installer and then upx'ed it.

I 'll test this later. So I basically did manually took me half an hour... what your tool can do in just a few seconds :blushing:

I have nearly completed the update. I need some information from anyone that does not have english as their Windows language. When you right click on a exe or file, on the context menu, there is a choice to pin to taskbar. I need to what what the exact string is to pin to the taskbar. On english systems it is "Pin to Taskbar". Note, the string must be exact or it will not work.

The sooner that you can get this to me, the sooner I can incorporate it into the script.

Windows 7 has given me trouble in copying files, reading reg strings, creating shortcuts. I finally have it all worked out. The new version works in all versions of windows (xp and up) and the installer package will install in any version of windows (xp and up) 32-bit or 64-bit, silently. The script will only need to be run as admin if you have your folders\files hidden as the script needs to see hidden folders to copy from the profile and the script can change the reg setting to view hidden files.

The install package does not need UAC to be disabled or to be run as admin. You will, of have to respond to the nag screen.

I still have a few things to cleanup, but I should have it ready in a few days. Sorry, I only have a couple of hours a day to work on this.

***EDIT***

Does this path remain the same?

"Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar"

Well, thank you for living up to your promise of a complete re-write of the Firefox Maker :-). So, from what I can see, we can only create a switchless installer now.

Alright, I have asked this before and received no support. So, I'm asking again.

I really dislike having to post an update just so that I can get someone to tell me of a bug they have found. I need some volunteers to join me and bug test each version, before I make it public. This will reduce the number of errors in the public releases.

If you value this script and you have a little free time, please PM for the details.

Thanks
