need help to include new bookmarks on the user browser during the upgrade via SCCM and making sure that the old bookmarks are in place as well after the upgrade installation is complete.

Or, how to merge the old and new bookmarks in Mozilla with the help of packaging tool Wise, InstallShield or Adminstudio.

Is there any command line to include new bookmarks in Firefox. We have to use either script, command line or EXE to include new bookmarks.

Customization Required:

  1. Custom home page
  2. Auto-Update Settings
  3. Set Default Search Engine
  4. Include Flash player Add-in
  5. update bookmarks

The above customization need to be performed during fresh install and upgrade using EXE or MSI.

You can initialize the bookmarks via a bookmarks.html file placed in defaults\profile (needs to be created), but AFAIK then there is no way to merge new bookmarks with existing bookmarks via the command line or otherwise apart from importing an HTML file in the Bookmarks Manager (Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks ).

I have done some research and found that bookamarks are stored in places.sqlite file

Location -- > default\places.sqlite

We can use a "qlite program :" to update the bookmarks, however not sure how to proceeed.

If you have any idea please let me know.

That would be quite complicated because it places.sqlite uses a lot of tables to implemented bookmarks and history in one file.
I'm not an expert on this and I don't know how to do this without the risk of corrupting the places.sqlite database.

Any Idea if this can be achieved using CCK tool, as we are facing issues in deploying the package created by CCK tool via SCCM
