The new website for FFaM went 'Live' today. Thanks go to Stefan Beer for his efforts in creating the page and doing all the heavy lifting to get it ready for use.

If, you have a moment, could I ask you to head over to Sourceforge and write a review or add a recommendation? It would help alot. Also, if you would check out the new website and click one of Social Networking buttons in the page footer. A little 'word of mouth' advertising would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I have made some bug fixes in the last couple of weeks, but they are untested. I need a a week or two and some free time to go through them. Then, I will post an update.

Hi Jonnyboy,

just one issue in v1.02.11 I "discovered" and tested yesterday:

everytime I start to create an installer, the tool doesn't find the FF-Installer and downloads it every time,

even if the FF have been downloaded during the "create" before and it is still present in the "temp/files"-folder.

BTW: I use FF 14.0.1 , german version.

One question: what is the difference between Shockwave "slim" and "full"?

Regards, Thiersee

When I removed the code that verified that installer matched the posted MD5, I also removed the ability to reuse a previously downloaded installer. I didn't and don't have the time, right now, to properly fix it.

As to the Shockwave installers, other than file size, I really don't know. If you go the the Adobe Shockwave site and download it, it will automatically give you the slim version.

That's the best that I can do for now.

~jonnyboy

BTW: Very few people even use this anymore, or ever really did.

It's OK, thank you for your answer.

I am currently rewriting FFaM again. This time in WPF .NET 4.0. I am in the beginning stages of the layout. If, you would like to offer your suggestions as to the UI, please post them here or email me.

This is a tool that I learn with and learn from.

You can follow me on github.

Hi Jonnyboy,

I get this error, if I try to work with FFaM.

If I choose "continue" (Weiter) it does not end the process, even after a long time; this error is not language dependent

The last FF-Version the tool was working with was FF 15.0.1.

Regards, Thiersee

Thank you for the info. That problem may have been with Mozilla pulling Firefox 16 and then making it available again. I am not sure.

But, as I am working an yet another rewrite, I will fix any and all bugs that have been found.

I basically have the same error he has on version 17.0.1.

 

The program says the installer is not found, even though it's there, and downloads it, but never finishes or starts. Happens on any language.

 

This program worked perfectly for me in version 15 and below.

 

Any help please? Thanks for all your work!!!

Jonnyboy is working on a new version (have a look at post #835); at the moment is FFaM not working!

You can use MozBackup: it's not creating a silent-install like FFaM, only a backup of your profile.

Hey ric,

 

How you been? Long time, eh? Things sorta slowing down and was looking for a project. But, this is probably too old to revive and not in any real demand anyway.
