Just curious...

Has anyone tested this with user profiles. For example, Install it under the local administrator account - then logon under another account? Does it work?

I presume administrator rights are required for installation of the customized firefox. Does the installer check for admin rights?

@Swimming_Bird
It should unpack because created new setup file is also 7zip SFX itself.

@Nois3:
In every install it creates new profile.I didnt changed setup file.I added little file which install your extensions,themes,profile and pass job to the installer.

Used it today... awesome!!! Saved me hours of stuffing around!

Mika: I haven't actually used it yet, but my guess is that you just run firefoxsilent.exe and it will do everything. No switches required!

Ceheers,

Adblock extension is problematic.Search the board and you will find one nightly build which doesnt have this bug.

when i try running the silent install, i get a 7zip error: system can't find file specified.  am i missing something for firefox or am i missing a 7zip file somewhere?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


This program sounds promising but I have run into this same error as well.

What I did:

- Unpacked FF 1.0.3 with SoF
- Copied extension xpis to project\extensions\
- Copied my prefs.js to project\profile\
- Copied my bookmark.htm to project\profile\
- Packed it in with SoF.

Something I overlooked?

Also, will the produced exe (if I manage to make one that works) be enough to install this unattended (RunOnceEx.cmd method) or does it need switches?

@oam

I think you need the correct version of 7zip.....try the latest beta.

Well, the truth is embarassing :) While testing stuff I had deleted the whole Project directory along with the install.exe file in there.... so no wonder it didn't work! That's sorted then.
I could now make a package and it installs fine...
...except for these minor issues:

- Bookmarks.html doesn't get copied to the created profile
- Adblock extension doesn't install. I will search the forums on this as I recall someone had the same problem.

Hi, I still have problem with the bookmarks.html. It resides in the project/profile directory together with the prefs.js file but it doesn't get carried on to the final package. Extensions work fine but this still escapes me... any tips?

Well I was looking at this app, and im just wondering is this similar to

http://www.neowin.ne...pic=291258&st=0

But this is probably used for Unattended Installs.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

IT does use 7zip. but thats the only similarity. This program is just for backing up and restoring profiles. SoF is for installing firefox with a default profile pre-installed.
