I have replication setup to numerous sites and all of a sudden while everything else will replicate the Firefox updates will not.  It shows still needs I also looked up on the replication share and those folder are not there.  Anyone else ever see this?

I too have seen this issue.  I too have used Firefox.  Tried deleting the offending file, then re-uploaded using Chrome.  Manually removed the offending file from the replication share and forced an inventory to sync the open sync time.  This did upload but still showed the file needing to be synced in the queue. So I'm not convinced this is entirely a Firefox issue.

What I did do to overcome this was: duplicate the script, delete the original, delete the replication share manually as it would take 2 weeks to otherwise, then did another forced inventory.  This time the script did sync the "copy of" script but even with the offending script gone in KACE and on the replication, it shows up in the queue but without a script number this time.

I have seen other scripts do this in the past and they all seemed to have fleshed themselves out over time.  I make a habit of duplicating scripts when needing to update them and this is a great reason to do so.
