Set first run homepage on the installer

Posted

I am deploying Firefox to a bunch of users in my company. I want to know if there is a way to set the installar so it will go to a homepage of my choosing on the first run, and allow users to change it going forward. Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks! Frank

It sounds like your best option is to include the following code in an AutoConfig file:

defaultPref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://example.com");

That will set the default homepage, but will also allow the user to change the homepage, which sounds like what you want to do.

The best part is that if you have to deploy it on many computers and don't want to manually implement the AutoConfig file on all of the computers, you can create your own custom Firefox installation file for Windows. See Repackaging the Windows Installer for more information.

Hope this helps.
