How update Firefox on startup, before process starts.

Posted

Hello,

we have some issues when user run Firefox with already updated profile on Firefox which version is older. Users check "create new profile" and after that report that all them settings are gone.

We can use start parameter: -allow-downgrade or just remove compatibility.ini if Firefox version not like profile version.

But we don`t want do this, I we think the best way is not start Firefox until it update. Can we force update Firefox using config or start parameter?

Unfortunately, I did not find a way to start the service.

$Service = "MozillaMaintenance" Invoke-Expression "cmd /c sc start MozillaMaintenance software-update updater.exe update-dir apply-dir [wait-pid] [callback-dir] [callback-path] [callback args]"


As far as I understand, it starts with arguments that we cannot recognize. How to start this service? :)

Thanks.
