need sccm package to deploy firefox with auto-update disabled

Posted

we always deploy firefox with sccm with the -ms switch. however, we are wanting to deploy firefox and disable auto-updates. i keep reading something about deploying firefox with a .ini file but i cant find anywhere on the switches or tags that need to be included in that .ini file to disable auto updates. i need everything to be the same as if we were deploying with -ms but i just need to disable auto-updates.

i also found that the actuall command line install would be something like the below:

firefox.exe /INI=<full path to configuration ini file>

can anyone assist me on this? much appreciated.
