How do I set thw Proxy URL settings through Command Line?

Posted

Hi Team, I need to deploy the Proxy URL settings for all the browsers in my company and I am creating a package. The Proxy settings are getting saved in prefs.js file.

Do I need to edit this file and update it with the proxy url settings or I have a command line option which I can run the same inside my deployment package. Kindly advice.

The Client Customisation Kit allows you to build a personalised version of firefox, with changes shown at http://code.google.com/p/ff-cckwizard/ ("Set default preferences" and "Lock preferences" are listed) and to integrate it with an existing installer see http://www.mozilla.org/projects/cck/firefox/wininstall.html Alternatively, comments in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=231062#c316 cover the patches to apply to create an MSI package.

Hi Folks, I reckon, This is not gonna solve my problem.

Actually, i need to set the auto-configuration proxy URL for the Firefox browser for all the machines in my network. For eg:

http://proxyconfig.msigeek.com/proxy.pac

I need to add this as a part of an exe or a script which I can deploy to all my machines. Any advices?
