FrontMotion MSIs NOT obsolete

Post by ldlx » Tue Jan 29, 2019 1:09 pm

Hi,

just for the record... Mozilla has begun releasing MSIs for Firefox. BUT:
- there's no GUI
- customizations have to be done through "Properties" Table instead of Shortcut/Folder-tables
- according to this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fi ... installers the MSI "is a wrapper of the exe full installer"

So FrontMotion still seems to have the better MSIs :-)

Kind regards, ldlx

As for MSIs, yes, but there is an enterprise (ESR) version directly from Mozilla with current policies, also. And there is no lag time with updates. If you can deploy EXE, that's the better option, IMHO. I used FMF for many years and still recommend for MSIs.

Mozilla does provide MSIs, but that are just EXE wrappers. But you can use the Frontmotion Firefox MSIs together with the group policy templates provided by Mike Kaply. So the only problem is to provide new MSI installers in short time.

I created a ticket at the Mozilla support forum... to pick up the FrontMotion MSIs as regular corporate installers: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1254500
