I am tryin to push Firefox out to our labs and classrooms. It will be a little over 1000 workstation deployment. What I am having a problem with is that whenever a new user logs into the workstation, He/she is prompted with Import Wizard. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to disable it?

This should take care of that problem.
From Firefox 1.x

Here's how I was able to remotely install Firefox 1.5 so that a proxy server is pre-configured, the home page is set, the browser does not nag the user to check that it is the default, and the Import Wizard does not run on first use:

jeffrsonk's -ms command line switch works perfectly to silently install Firefox. In order to accomplish the rest of the above, here's what I did:

Copy an edited version of "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\greprefs\all.js" with the following changes:

pref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url", "http://our.domain.com/proxy.pac");
pref("network.proxy.type", 2);

Copy an edited version of "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browserconfig.properties" with the following changes:

browser.startup.homepage=http://ourdomain.com.au
browser.startup.homepage_reset=http://ourdomain.com.au

Copy an edited version of "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\defaults\pref\firefox.js" with the following changes:

pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);

Given that our students' profiles are deleted each time they log off, I also am copying a replacement start menu and desktop icon with a command line as follows (by telling Firefox the location of a new profile to create, it doesn't run the import wizard):

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profile "%TEMP%"

Given that Firefox is in the habit of loading their own page on first use, and since our students get a new profile each time, you may also want to use this command line instead:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "www.domain.com" -profile "%TEMP%"

The profile gets created in the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\Local Settings\Temp

The directory specified with -profile needs to exist, so I couldn't specify %TEMP%\Firefox without first creating that directory. I'm happy to leave the profile in %TEMP% anyway.
