Hi Will,


you can’t use the /S and –ms switches toghether with an ini file. I do it like 

"%ScriptPath%\Firefox Setup 45.5.1esr.exe" /INI=%ScriptPath%\firefox.ini


%ScriptPath% is an opsi software distribution variable, you need the full path.


firefox.ini contains the following:



InstallDirectoryName=Mozilla Firefox

; InstallDirectoryPath=c:\firefox\


; DesktopShortcut=false

; StartMenuShortcuts=false

; StartMenuDirectoryName=Mozilla Firefox



This disables the maintenance service and always does a silent install!


Afterwards I do copy mozilla.cfg and autoconfig.js to


copy "%ScriptPath%\files\mozilla.cfg" "$InstallDir$"

copy "%ScriptPath%\files\autoconfig.js" "$InstallDir$\defaults\pref"


Where  $InstallDir$ is the FF installation directory.


mozilla.cfg contains:


// Disable the Updater

lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);

// Make sure it’s really off

lockPref("app.update.auto", false);

lockPref("app.update.mode", 0);

lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false);


// Disable the know your rights.

pref("browser.rights.3.shown", true);


// Hide „What’s new“ on first start



// Disable the internal PDF-Viewer

pref("pdfjs.disabled", true);


// Disable the Flash to JavaScript Converter

pref("shumway.disabled", true);


// Suppress the Flash Plugin installation notification

pref("plugins.notifyMissingFlash", false);


// disable the 'health reporter'

lockPref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false);


// Disable all data upload (Telemetry and FHR)

lockPref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false);


// Disable the 'crash reporter'

lockPref("toolkit.crashreporter.enabled", false);

 = false;


and autoconfig.js:


pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);



You can add your own settings to mozilla.cfg, just check about:config .



Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

Betreff: [Mozilla Enterprise] two cmd line install switches query


Hi All,


I can successfully get the both switches (/S and –ms) to work for Firefox to 
install silently.


However, I can’t get the –setDefaultBrowser (to automatically make Firefox the 
default browser on install) and MaintenanceService=false (to stop the 
maintenance service software to install) switches to work.  Has anyone managed
