great app, but i have one request:
please make it possible to include components folder because some plugins have components in there. real and qt alternative for example. xcopying them is a complementary step that shouldnt be needed fo such a great app.

edit: thx for confirmation :thumbup

i was wondering about some of the prefs.js options that i couldnt find in http://www.mozilla.o...zing.html#prefs


first of all i was wondering what was the pref to make it ask where to download the file every time?

I will add components directory as well.However before doing updates I want to hear what you want more.It isnt good to upload new files after each feature request because my connection isnt so good.

Currently planning
---------------------
* Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components folder
* mimeTypes.rdf (what to do with each file ie. download execute etc)

1) To be able to set firefox as the default browser automatically

2) a slightly clearer guide packaged w/ sof on where you need to put plugins, themes, etc.

(Two more I just though of)

1) Quicktime and Real alternative support (if possible. If not, understandable)

2) Flash support (Allows flash to silent install OR already be installed (wihtin the firefox dirs) when Firefoxsilent.exe runs)

@Swimming_Bird:
I want word peace :) prefs.js compiler is really out of scope.You can make your prefs.js with firefox.

@viriiman
1) To be able to set firefox as the default browser automatically
There is a prefs.js option so firefox will ask you to set default browser on first run.Because many of us dont set firefox as default browser

2) a slightly clearer guide packaged w/ sof on where you need to put plugins, themes, etc.
Ok.

3-4) Quicktime and Real alternative,flash support (if possible. If not, understandable)
I guess you are missing the point, any file in your plugins directory(Quicktime,realtime,flash etc) will be copied after you install it.So, whatever you setup on your current firefox installation it will be copied to your silet firefox setup.

sorry, dont get me wrong. i got no clue how hard it would be to make one. i was just ssaying if it was possible that would rock. if not still a killer program. I really wish i knew how to program (although i tired to learn and hate programming). the best thing about it is how professional it looks.


if anyone can post a link to somewhere that has all the prefs.js parameters with descriptions i would bow down before ye.

Okay, so to make sure, I need to:

* choose where the installer package is and unzip
* put extension-XPI's in \extensions\
* put theme-JARs in \themes\
* create a prefs.js somehow
* repack

Is this correct?
How can I create this prefs.js? Or can this just be an empty file?
Do I need to have Firefox already installed on my computer or can I use a clean computer?

It's in your Firefox-profile.
Go to "C:\Documents and settings\YOUR NAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\ProfilesRANDONNAME.

It's there.

@anandus

here's what worked for me.......

have these ready;
firefox 1.02
bookmarks
sof
firetune (optional)

clean install w\o firefox installed

1 install firefox, donot install agent or what ever....
2 install all extensions and themes
3 close firefox (do not restart firefox yet)
4 go to "C:\Documents and settings\YOUR NAME\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\ProfilesRANDONNAME\extensons\temp
and move the xpi files to your extensions folder in sof. long folders
and all, then one folder up are the jar's move them to themes
folder in sof.
5 restart firefox and configure away, import bookmarks ect. get it
the way you want......
6. then I ran firetune, optomizes firefox for the speed you need...........
7. run SOF........

The above method worked fine for me the more expierenced here should
shed more light on it for us........

thanks for a great tool

You have to use *original* setup files of extensions and themes.
For extensions,
Go to firefox extension site(Tools/Extension Get More Extensions)

downlaod your extensions but do not install it you can download it by save as option.Put .xpi file to your project\extensions directory.

Theme stuff is same.You cant grab xpi and jar files from your current firefox once they are installed they got deleted.

I deploy ff 1.0.3 on some PC (just a: setup_firefox_1.0.3.exe -ms). Before they have version 1.0, 1.0.1 or 1.0.2. It depends.
No problem
