Do you still have the bin folder, you're replacing the original FFaM.hat with the one linked above, correct?

To be sure, I downloaded the files again

I have finished the UI for FFaM v.9b1. If you have a little free time, please download and try to make it throw an exception or error. I think everything works except creating the installer.
I am open to suggestions on improving the UI. It is written in C# and requires .Net 2.0 and as all .Net apps, it's a little slow to open.

Thanks Jonnyboy for the great job you doing, keep it up.

Thanks for checking it out. It doesn't create the installer, because the code hasn't been written. I tested this on many different windows versions in vm, but I needed to see if any errors were seen in non-English windows. Sadly, I have only received 2 responses.
If this was not for my own education, the project would be dead, for lack of use(need).

I love the idea of a FF "installer creator", for lack of a better term. FF has been changing so much so fast lately I don't envy your task. Besides the basic personalization you provide, the other things in a FF install that people add are all the various extensions, dictionaries, and extras such as SumatraPDF etc. Picking out the best mix of extensions is sometimes overwhelming to a new user and tracking down the latest versions of the ones you pick, and making sure they are compatible with the FF version, is often a pain, especially with the recent rate of changes. Maybe if a set of suggested extensions, or links to them, were provided for use in building a new build that might be helpful. If I understand how your builder works, it creates an installer based on your existing installation? If that's true, then as the versions of FF have rapidly progressed, and therefor updates in extensions are required to keep up, then building an installer becomes a moving target. Your installer is "out of date" before you can install it on another system. It was different when updates were quarterly or longer. Am I missing something as to how it's supposed to work?

Cheers and Regards

This tool and others like it have been around for a long time. This one is at least 3 years old and the idea for it was a script that was at least 2 years old when I first saw it. The purpose of FFaM is to create an installer made with the current version of Firefox along with all of the settings, extensions and plugins that you choose to add(from your current installation). This is primarily for those that reinstall windows again and again. This saves you the time of downloading and installing all of the extensions and plugins separately and gives you a consistent Firefox fresh out of the box.
I realize that with Firefox sync, the ability to save your settings is no longer as important as it once was. With Siphon, your extensions are easily installed. With the Rapid Deployment schedule by Firefox, the installer will be out of date within a short amount of time. But, so is your current installation. This is for convenience, it saves time and repetition.
If it works for you, great. If it doesn't, why? What can make it better?
I'm probably on my final rewrite of this project. It started as batch file and has progressed through the hta(I lost interest for more than a year) and will soon be finished in C#.

your tool looks strange on my win XP. fonts are not very nice and I cannot see the buttons on the botom (see img)
Image
I also noticed a typo in your css and style files. i believe it should be 500px not 500x.

Code: Select all

#body
{
	position:relative;
	width:996px;
	height:500x;
	float:left;
	margin:4px;
	padding:0;
	display:none;
	z-index:2;
}
EDIT: I am using FF so I only had basic IE6 installed. After installing IE8 the fonts are the same but at least I can see the buttons on the bottom already.
EDIT2: There is a problem with flash download. Not able to create addon with flash checked. From the log files I see it is impossible to create a connection with adobe server. They changed something maybe? With flash unchecked I am able to create the addon.

FFaM v0.9.0.2 posted

Hello all!!

Long time, no here. I finally finished with my classes and had a little time to work on this the last couple of days. I know, it was supposed to be done before Christmas. Sorry, this was the best that I could do.
I am posting the current file on my sourceforge. Be warned, it is not 100% done, but it is very close. A few things that do not work, yet.
1) Flash and Shockwave will not install.
2) The shortcuts will not be created.
3) It may only install into the default location.
4) The app is missing alot of error catching routines. I am very new to C# and do not know how to use it very well. So, you may get an "unhandled exception" or some other fatal error. If you do, please screenshot it and post it for me. Then, I can fix it.


To finish these few items, I need to set up a some VM 's to test the installs on. This was written and tested on 1 Win7 x64 system.

Please test and post any bugs. The app requires .Net 3.5. Sorry, but I could not get everything working properly in .Net 2.0.

Thank you all,

~jonnyboy

I need a little help.

The old links for Adobe Flash Installer have been removed and replaced with these links.
In my app, I would like to verify the MD5 hashes of the downloaded files. Now, to my question. Does anyone know where I can find a link for the MD5 hashes, posted by Adobe?

If you are running a system with system language other than English, I have a question.

Do the "Pinned" shortcuts appear when you choose to create them? If not, let me know.

Thank you

1. I would ask to add in spare time:

*VLC Plugin for Firefox (Mozilla)
http://wiki.videolan.org/Windows#VLC_Pl ... Mozilla.29

2. Is it possible for future versions to add the support for Waterfox: (alternative 64-bit Firefox) and also other for 64-bit OS (ex.Pale Moon x64 ) (Waterfox and Pale moon uses the same profile that Firefox does)?

Sorry, if this rambles. I am thinking this through as I type it.
I have not looked at either the VLC plugin or Waterfox. I have looked at Pale Moon.
My requirements for adding additional versions of Firefox is that it installs in the same manner as vanilla Firefox, the version number can be parsed from their webpage and there is a direct download link. I wrote an installer that creates the shortcuts and fixes many of the filenames that are linked to the uninstaller. This ensures that a clean uninstall can be performed. That installer should work with any version of Firefox. But, Firefox is installed using Firefox's 'install.ini' file requirements and any additional version of Firefox must be able to be installed in the same manner. The profiles are created using builtin routines in Firefox and any additional version of Firefox would also have to create profiles in the same manner. I do not want to write a custom installer for each version of Firefox.
My requirements for adding plugins are that the plugin is able to be silently installed, the version number but be parsed from the current webpage and there is a direct download link. A posted md5 or sha1 hash would be gravy. As to the direct download link, many sites make you click here, then here and then here again. I can not code that. It must be a direct link.

With that said, I will add them to the list of items to possibly add.

Thank you

The new website for FFaM went 'Live' today. Thanks go to Stefan Beer for his efforts in creating the page and doing all the heavy lifting to get it ready for use.

If, you have a moment, could I ask you to head over to Sourceforge and write a review or add a recommendation? It would help alot. Also, if you would check out the new website and click one of Social Networking buttons in the page footer. A little 'word of mouth' advertising would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

@alsyundawy - Please do not hijack someone else's thread with your own links, unless they are meant for that person to use in the addon that is being discussed.

Cheers and Regards

Who is building them? Is their a webpage with information? How long have they been building them? Will they continue to build them in the future? Will they remain current?

These are questions that I need the answers to before I can consider adding them to FFaM.

Thank you for the link.

When I create addon there is no SVCPACK directory inside the 7z file and firefox does not get installed. If I repack it and put the exe file inside SVCPACK directory I get the same issue as alban.

Not yet. I have been working on it, a little. I am trying to fix a portion that was removed, earlier. Trying to not have it all hacked up. But, I have to learn it first. Note too many examples for what I am doing.

I hope to have it solved in a couple of weeks. Time is running out.

I am currently rewriting FFaM again. This time in WPF .NET 4.0. I am in the beginning stages of the layout. If, you would like to offer your suggestions as to the UI, please post them here or email me.
This is a tool that I learn with and learn from.

You can follow me on github.
