Firefox SFX Maker 5.5

HelLo . .

My suggestion: An AIO version would be great , which will automatically detect the OS bit and install the correct version, so a single SFX can be used on any OS !

ThanX :rolleyes:

There is at least one reason, because it does not (yet) make sense, to automatically install FF x64 on 64-bit systems:

not all extensions and plug-in are 100% compatible with FFx64.

WinRAR installers are a lot smaller, and x64 version is better that x86 for x64 system, that makes sense to bundle them together.

And as Thiersee have said, some may choose to install x86 Firefox on x64 Windows.

It's a good opportunity to learn how to make a 7zip SFX !

Hi mooms,

Since version 45 Firefox does NOT support unsigned extensions anymore!

You can change "Question 1" in the script to give a warning to the user.

Quote

echo ================================================================================
echo               Do you want to integrate your own extensions?
echo.
echo    Extensions must be put in the "ext" folder, you can see an example there;
echo    you also must edit some files inside to enable the extensions.
echo.
echo              -Yes    -tap 1 then ENTER
echo              -No     -tap 2 then ENTER
echo.
echo                !!! BE CAREFUL!!!
echo.
echo    Since version 45.0 Firefox does NOT accept unsigned extension anymore!
echo    You can generate the SFX with version 44.0 and your extensions and
echo    afterward update the installation with the SFX in the actual version.
echo ================================================================================

 

Regards, Thiersee

Actually, and since 46.0, Firefox don't support anymore the installation of custom profiles from the program folder...

See this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1269706

The only way I'm aware of now is to copy the (prepared) Profiles folder in %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox

This should be done in a separate SFX, so I should remove the option from the maker, or at least modify it.

Version 3.3 is out.

 

- Custom profile is working again with Firefox 46+ (modified the method to copy the custom profile folder)

Hi mooms,

it works, as usual, but with a big disadvantage for my purposes: the profile is working only for the user where I installed FF (Admin), NOT for the other user, sorry.

On a PC in Italy I have 8 user...so I`ll continue using the 44.0 SFX with my group of extensions; after that I must start FF for every single user to get his profile generated, than I can update to the actual version.

It's less work, anyway, instead of installing the extension for every user.

Have a nice sunday, Thiersee.

Mozilla's fault, not mine, they keep their long tradition of bad moves....

Workaround: you can extract the file ext.exe and run it for each user.

Hi mooms. Is possible to add the ftp download links from here? https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/49.0/win32/ Because version 49.0 is out but maker still fix version 48.0.2. In a few days change the links to new version

It takes a couple of days, but you can every time chose to download "specified version 32" (or 64) then you can chose 49.0.

I've finally found the time to work on this, so version 4 is out,.

@NaJeEb303 @hamzaaan  your wish is fulfilled:

What's new:

  • You can now make AIO (x86 & x64) SFX. The setups are uncompressed then recompressed together for better compression (smaller file size).
  • wget is replaced by aria2 (can use multiple connections, much faster)

It would be nice to add a desktop shortcut . , so a noob will know that firefox is installed as it is a silent installer.

Thanks :-)
