Creating msi for firefox used to be simple. But things have changed from i believe 13.0.1. So this is what I have come up with this.

channel-prefs.js is also edited  which is present in the default/pref in the installation directory by adding these four lines of code.

pref("extensions.update.enabled", true);

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

pref("browser.search.update", false);

pref("extensions.enabledAddons", true);

Add the Mozilla.cfg file and the application.ini file in the install directory and also add the local-settings.js file in the defaults\prefs folder for setting the preferences.

Put the the file profiles.ini in %APPDA%\Mozilla\Firefox with the following lines:



Subsequently put he file user.js in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\firefox.default with the lines:

# Mozilla User Preferences

/* Do not edit this file.
 * If you make changes to this file while the application is running,
 * the changes will be overwritten when the application exits.
 * To make a manual change to preferences, you can visit the URL about:config

user_pref("app.update.enabled", false);
user_pref("app.update.service.enabled", false);
user_pref("browser.search.update", false);


This should do the trick.

  • You can't edit it with the KBOX but want you can do is edit the .ini file on one system and then use file sych in the KBOX to copy and replace the current profile.ini file.
