I am trying to create an install script for firefox using the config.ini method, http://wiki.mozilla.org/Installer:Command_Line_Arguments.

These are the contents of my config.ini:
[Install]
QuickLaunchShortcut=false
DesktopShortcut=false

I also want it to leave IE as the default web browser.

Does anyone know how to do this?

I can't help you on the config file front but then, you don't seem to be asking any question about that.

As for the default browser, one of the INIs which gets extracted to a folder in %TEMP% contains a reference to FF being the default browser, but that wouldn't really be of benefit, as you have no control over that location. If it were me, I'd use ProcMon to monitor file/registry activity as I turned the option on and off.

oilernut,

Here is a great article on how to configure FireFox. I have been configuring FireFox with this method for my company since v2.0.0.7.

You can leave i.e. as default by using the below line in the Mozilla.cfg file that you will need to create.

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