I would like to get new security updates for Firefox, i dont have Internet connection so the updates must come in some other way.

is it possible to download updates somewhere and then place then on a share on a fileserver and then i can tell Firefox look for updates on this share instead of Internet.

I already use this technic for Windows Defender, i download the definition files and the enable a GPO that tell Defender that all updates are on a fileshare.

Can this be done in Firefox (or something similar?

Hope you understand what i am trying to achieve

What is the specific URL that is required to access auto-updates from the client? As an enterprise, we have locked down devices that have limited Internet connectivity. Our security area will not open the entire download area, so we are looking for the specific URL or web address that is needed so we can still auto-update clients. We want to move more people to Firefox, but need to get this working first.

Why does FF reset the homepage to firefox home with the latest update? We deploy our Windows based systems to hundreds of customers and count on FF to bring them to our company homepage to check for updates, documentation, etc. How can I make sure my customers systems always start on my homepage? P.S. We have hundreds of customers so going to each system is not really feasible.

I am attempting to setup Mozilla for enterprise version 81.0 (x64) to deploy through Intune and update the previous versions on our client laptops. I set up Intune with the following detection rule(attached). The idea is that Intune looks for this registry key and if its not at version 81.0 it pushes out the updated MSI file. What happens so far is that when I have a older version installed such as 74.0. Intune DOESN'T push out the update. However when I completely remove Firefox within minutes Intune detects that its not installed and pushes out the current version. Therefore it would appear that the detection rule works but not as intended. A attempted to adjust the value on the detection rule with no success. The original detection rule was to detect a file inside program files\mozilla firefox. However that rule would not detect the current version installed.

Any ideas would be helpful.

Hello Guys,

I hope that you can help me. I work for a company with 900+ Windows Clients and several Terminal Server users. At the moment I deployed Firefox ESR 68.4.2 32-Bit. Yes 32-Bit, my mistake. Anyway, I want to update to version ESR 68.5.0. At the same time, I want to jump onto the 64-Bit version. This article mentioned no problem at all; install 64-Bit and afterwards uninstall the 32-Bit version of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switch-32-bit-64-bit

I did this step for step but I can't see the bookmarks on the 64-Bit version. If I uninstall and reinstall the 32-Bit Version the bookmarks are back. I need help, please. The users are going to kill me, if I "delete" their bookmarks.

Greetings and thank you in advance!

We have it on many computers in our environment and manual uninstalls are not feasible. I can install/uninstall Firefox itself silently, but the maintenance service does not use the Windows MSI installer so command line switches like "/s" and "-ms" have no effect.

The ProductCode (ProductID) after Firefox Setup 68.5.0esr.msi is installed does not match to the ProductCode (ProductID) of the Firefox Setup 68.5.0esr.msi. We use SCCM to create the application deployment for Firefox ESR x64 and to install all the endpoints. When creating the deployment, SCCM automatically extracts the ProductCode, and uses the same to detect the presence of the application - if it's not present, it installs. The main issue is that when SCCM checks again the presence after it's installed, the deployment fails because the ProductCode after it's installed is different than what came with the MSI installer. I noticed that this is the case as well for Firefox Setup 68.4.0x esr.msi whereas in the past this was not the case.

See the attached file to see the screenshots.

We're running reports from our Software deployment tools and after pushing update 70 on Windows 7 machines, version 69.x of Firefox is still reporting as being installed. When we push an uninstall task for version 69.x, it removes all bookmarks and passwords for users on the PC. Windows 10 does not appear to have this same issue. We believe it may be because version 70 is forcing x64 install and we had x86 69.x installed previously.

We are planning to deploy the Firefox enterprise to our environment (Windows). We found that the auto updates only works when we go to Options (about:preferences). What we want to achieve is we want the check for update happen in background. And if possible it should install silently background. Then prompt for new update notification for user to relaunch the browser in order to get latest version.

A few questions we would like to ask and understand. - How did the automatic update works? - How frequent does the check for updates happen? - Is there any group policy that we could configure for the interval check or other related to auto update? - How could we achieve this goal? with mozilla config file or group policy?

Thank you.

I am trying push Firefox out via Microsoft Intune. I am able to push it out but Intune's always say waiting on install status. I have tried the msi and the exe installers and have the same issue. I am trying to validate the installation like I do other msi installation by looking at the GUID but the issue is none of the Firefox installers install a GUID in the registry.

I am trying to figure out how to add my own GUID via the installation. Any ideas?

I need to find a way to trigger updates for Firefox silently via the command line, so that I can keep 8000+ endpoints up to date. I currently have taken to downloading the stub installer and firing it via script (I currently do this with Chrome also), but this is still messier than I'd like.

Is there a consistent way to start/call the update service to perform the updates in the background? Not all users start Firefox often, and as a result we cannot rely on any user initiated action. If Firefox is outdated on those machines, it gets flagged on security audits, and we have to prevent that. Ideally the command would not have to be modified for every single update, basically just something to trigger it to check for and apply any updates to both x86 and x64 would be great.

Thank you!
