Help creating a costumized silent addon for Firefox 18 and beyond

Recommended Posts

Hello, I used to make great use of this tool: http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/3637-tool-ffam-v10211/  to create silent costumized addons for Firefox, with costumized extensions, flash player/shockwave and more plugins, about:config configurations, and all prefs.js alterations I had done on an installed copy in XP. However, the tool doesn't work anymore, and I would like to learn how to do it manually.

 

I have read many tutorials that use different approaches, but don't include all the customizations I used to be able to do before:

I am able to create addons for less complex programs reading tutorials from Ricktendo: http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/4659-video-how-to-make-silent-switch-installers/

 

But I can't go beyond using the /ms switch using those methods.

 

Any hints, or help would be much appreciated!

You can extract the installer, edit/add/remove files (search plugins, browser-addons, etc) and you can also use a INI to customize it a bit further (this is how I install mine using WPI) to not install desktop shortcut and skip the maintenance service install

I delete the directx and visual c++ runtimes (because I install them in full)
