Re: 10.0.2 and search providers

But I'm not overcomplicating it, you took more time. It takes 5 minutes, tops, to create an administrative install point and edit the text file. It should have taken you far more than 15 minutes to test your GPO across all the test systems in all the departments, which I surely hope you have done an...

Re: 10.0.2 and search providers

I tried using that to build an MSI before and had nothing but trouble, but glad it worked for you with the current build of Firefox. It still took you far longer to walk through that process than creating an administrative install point and editing a text file. Keep in mind you're effectively compar...

Re: 10.0.2 and search providers

msiexec /a fm.msi edit xml (text) file install from administrative install point vs. build, test, maintain your own msi using tools that cost hundreds to thousands of dollars Personally I want to modify the default install anyway so making an administrative install point was already being done. But ...

Re: 10.0.2 and search providers

I took you 4 hours to msiexec /a and modify an xml file? Despite having a recent threads in the forum about this very topic? Did you test the installation before rolling it out and discover this ahead of time? It took me under 45 minutes to discover the situation and find/implement the solution, tha...

Re: Working on 10.0.6esr.

I setup a new system with 10.0.5ESR and noticed that. No matter how many times I fold FF to be the default browser it refused to switch. I ended up going into Default Programs in Windows 7, selected Set your default programs, selected Firefox from the list, then hit Set this program as default. It's...

Re: 10.0.2 and search providers

For future installations you just create an administrative install point and modify the google.xml file. You may need to use a text editor like Notepad++ that honors Unix-style EOLs. I just finished rolling out 10.0.5ESR to over 80 workstations and this is my google.xml file. <SearchPlugin xmlns="ht...

Re: FF 13.0.1 Questions

I believe if you create an administrative install point for the MSI that you can change the default installation of Firefox, which should allow you to skip the import step... though I've never tried. Note that if the profile already exists when Firefox is opened for the first time it won't prompt yo...

Re: Upgrading to FireFox13 through LUP

We decided to push 10.0.x ESR because the sites we rely on are refusing to stay compatible with the constantly-incrementing Chrome & Firefox versions. Well, they refused Chrome a long, long time ago, but now Firefox has been included thanks to the same reason - a rising tide of compatibility problem...

Re: Firefox 13 question

My concern about auto-updating would be if the auto-updater changed the installed application's unique ID. Firefox 13, like all applications, is installed with a unique ID, which is what group policy checks to see if the application has already been installed. When the auto-update service goes from ...

Re: Firefox 13 question

I would guess it would be possible, but since Frontmotion Firefox is a nonstandard (read: non-Mozilla) build of Firefox it would require Frontmotion to put up their own update servers for you to pull the updates from, which is what all the other nonstandard builds do. Updating from the official (Moz...

Re: Upgrade from 7 version on terminal server

Does the problem happen using a new profile or is it isolated to the profile that was upgraded from 7? Google "Firefox profile manager" for instructions on how to access & create a new profile for testing purposes. I would hope that the problem will go away with a new profile, at which point you can...

Re: Upgrade from 7 version on terminal server

You cannot upgrade through Mozilla's servers because you don't have a Mozilla build of Firefox.

If you push the application out using an .MSI build, you must upgrade the product using subsequent (newer version) .MSI builds.

Re: FM v11 with roaming profiles

Does straight-up Firefox work in a roaming profile environment? I would bet it has the exact same problem. If FF doens't work in a roaming profile environment, I would start asking them to fix the situation, and FM will inherit whatever fix they come up with. FM is just patching the existing code to...
