Is it possible to configure firefox to update on launch or via CMD?

more options

Hello all,

I am wondering, is it possible to configure Firefox to automatically download and install updates when the browser starts, or can firefox be commanded to update from the windows command line?

Thanks very much.

You may want to try one of these two ways:

  • Setup Windows Service Silence Updates. Please refer to this link from Mozilla Wiki:-

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Windows_Service_Silent_Update

  • Create a batch script, that you can run from your command prompt to install the updates. A gentleman on Stackoverflow, has put up one good script, that I tried. Here is a link to it, in case you would like to give it a try:-

Let me know how it goes.
