----------------------------

Hi,as I promised I have coded this little utility in my spare time.It's a little utility which will unpack your original firefox setup add your extensions,themes,profiles etc and pack it again.Final file will be silent package.

I spent much more time on photoshop than on code, it may contain bugs so easy on me.As you may see from the graphics, I suck at photoshop :lol: .Anyway, hope it works for you.Before doing anything be sure to read readme file carefully.

Best Regards

@Swimming_Bird:

firefoxsilent.exe is produced where you run sof.exe.I didnt put error checking when creating files if your problems continue PM and I will send you debug version.Also I have tested this program only on Windows XP SP2 no other windows version is granted to work :)

Edit:Yes there was a bug.I wasnt clearing the buffer when executing 7za process.I corrected and fixed first post.Please download it again.

Well, if your refering to %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox for Firefox, it's %AppData%\Thunderbird for Thunderbird. The installer folder is %ProgramFiles\Mozilla Thunderbird. All the rest is same as Firefox.

But Firefox is more important :)

Very nice program! :) I will try it. But wait, I noticed that the installer will be a 7zip sfx. So there's no uninstaller, right?

this is just a packager that will repackage the original installer then run it. it seems incredibly similar to simon's but more easily configured and with a GUI.

It doesnt copy extensions or themes from your original installation as said in readme.You have to put original themes and extensions to corresponding drectories.So, you have to download theme and extension files again but do not install it.Just put Theme files(.jar) to your themes directory and Extension files(.xpi) to extensions directory.Hope you got it now.

Hi LaptoniC

Well instead of using the .xpi and .jar, like a dummy I've been using the whole long

string after they been installed. It works but pointless, the extensions have problems

but can be made to work......downloading new files now...........

thanks for easy to use program........
