Thx for the fast reply.

Hey LaptoniC, your little proggie is great! Lovely work! :thumbup

I'd want to suggest a minor enhancement: add an option to set the compression level of 7zip, as with the present setting it eats _too_ RAM :}.

Is it possible to bypass the 7zip compression and, for example, create a WinRAR SFX archive? What to launch after files extraction?

Thanks and best regards

Venator :hello:

The switch for 7zip is the same as original firefox setup.You can change swtichs by hex editing the file.If you want to make WinRAR SFX,I run install.exe when extraction ends.

Hi!

I transfered today succesfully my Thunderbird to a new computer.

I copied the themes, extensions, and a customized userChrome.css file.

The only change that I made in the data.ini is add the "chrome" and "extensions" words to the ProfileFiles

ProfileFiles=prefs.js,mimeTypes.rdf,chrome,extensions

Thanks for your work and best regards!

Is Sof.exe an open source project?

If yes, can you provide the source code?

Thank you.

It is closed source program.It is written in Win32ASM.So if you dont know ASM language it doesnt help you that much.Source code is almost identical the dissassembler output of exe file.

I need some help from you.

When i run the command: 7za.exe a -r Firefox Project\Firefox\* from the sof folder, the archive created contains 2 folders: Project\Firefox. The Firefox folder contains the dirs and files for silent Firefox.

Can you tell me how to have the firefox dirs and files on root of the archive? Just like the archive created by Sof.exe?

I know i can run the 7za.exe from firefox folder, but i wish not to do it this way. Is there any way to do it my way?

Thank you.

Is it me or does anyone else have problems getting this to work as an add-on for nlite.

I make the install fine, and it works silently just by running the file created by SOF.

But if I make a cab and run it that way none of my personalizations install. just a default version of FF and TB.

Hi there !

Ive created my own Extension with CCK:

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/cck/firefox/

It works...Ive tested the XPI.

Now I try to integrate the XPI with SOF into a setup File...

ive copied bookmarks and prefs.js into profile and Ive copied my XPI into extensions

within the project directory of SOF.

Than I hit the pack button and the setup was created...

but when I run the setup the appears an error message:

"Chrome Registrierung fehlgeschlagen - Firefox konnte dieses Objekt auf Grund eines Fehlers

in der Chrome Registrierung nicht installieren"

(Chrome Registry failed - FF couldnt install this object because of an error in the chrome registry)

Please Contact the Author ;)

Here I am :D

I hope someone could help me

Your extension isnt compatible to install via commandline.There are a lotf extensions that have this problem.Your best solution is, dont add that extension to your project and install afterwards, or copy your whole profile directory to your project directory.

Hmm ?

But you wrote that xpi's setup should be used...not the installed Extension.

Should I copy the whole profile directory to sof/project/firefox/profile ?

Does anybody know this ?

http://emmanuel.gasne.free.fr/xpimaker/manual.php#config4

or that

http://ted.mielczarek.org/code/mozilla/extensionwiz/

I try to create a Firefox with my Company CI...

it should have settings, bookmarks, extensions, searchengines and a button to the companies homepage.

Is it possible to make my XPI compatible ?

Thanks for your tool and the quick answer !!!

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to see if anyone knows if SoF will be updated to handle Firefox 2?

Hi there. Thanks for creating this program. It's really useful for me. It does seem to work with Firefox 2 Ok and the latest Thunderbird but didn't seem to install all my extensions. However, conflict or not it's no real problem since Mozbackup takes care of that task for me. What I would appreciate though is if it helped compile a silent install of Filezilla Server. Would this be possible at all?

Actually SoF does not copy the profile files (bookmarks.html, prefs.js etc) to the correct folder in SoF, So it just installs a default profile which is alright if you're not bothered with a custom profile, As SoF is now i have to move my custom profile files to the correct folder for it too work properly, Unless somebody can tell me how to change the path where my profile folder files are copied too in SoF, Thank You
