Installing and managing firefox in an enterprise environment using a third party desktop managment system (Novell ZEN)

Posted

We want to deploy Firefox in our enterprise environment and need to figure out a way to have the install run silently, no user interaction. We use Novell's ZEN to centrally manage our desktops and how we've done this with other installs is to create a response file, but I guess Firefox will not use response files. So, how would we accomplish this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Novell's ZEN and response files Fixed certs for Firefox 36 using Novell, not sure how they did this but was fixed for the next version. 1042889 comment 8 specifically 1091778

Try it in beta.

Otherwise an alternative to a silent install from the commandline is -ms and check out the recommendations for deploying in an enterprise environment in MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/F.../Enterprise_deployment
