Silent Install Firefox 29 Windows

I've been scouring the internet for a while looking for a way to do a silent install of Firefox via command-line. As I have come to find out, the -ms and /INI methods only work in much older versions of Firefox.

When I try the -ms silent install, the first half of the install works fine, until it gets to the second half. As it appears, the second half first asks for the admin password (which is doesn't need), then it proceeds with the very visible second half of the install (another click to download and install Firefox and another useless ask for the admin password).

What I think is happening is that the first installer is actually just installing another installer (into the appdata/temp folder) then opening that installer, and deleting it when it's done. This second installer doesn't support the -ms command when run on it's own.

Anyone got any ideas?

Found the answer.

I went in and reported this to bugzilla, and after talking it over with someone, it was revealed that there are no plans to include silent install for the general "stub" based installer. But the silent install does work if you use the full installer (which doesn't use the double install process found in the general installer, and can only be downloaded here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ )

The full installer does support regular -ms silent install. To get rid of the admin permission requests, just run it elevated (aka: run as admin).

After this conversation, the mozilla wiki was updated accordingly: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Installer:Command_Line_Arguments

Hi Danegraphics, You can take a look at the Deployment configurations that the ESR uses. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Deployment:Deploying_Firefox and the email list is a great resource of admins as well.
