Changing icon for Firefox CE back to original?

Post by arthur.k » Mon Aug 26, 2013 7:48 pm

Hello. Thank you for making it possible to use group policy adm with Firefox CE.

Question - is there a way to change the blue icon back to the regular Firefox icon?

It will feel more natural to the users :)

Thanks

I do this using an InnoSetup package that I created. Below is the template, you'll need to change some values for your environment. You'll also need to acquire the Firefox icon file (I extracted it out of firefox.exe from a standard install). We use Configuration Manager to deploy applications and I have this run after the FrontMotion install. This will delete the FrontMotion Firefox shortcut from the Desktop, and place a Mozilla Firefox shortcut on the Desktop. It can easily be modified to do the same with the Start Menu shortcut.

Code: Select all

The packager also has the icon change as an option. It's a paid service, but it's great way to support the free packages. *hint hint* :)
