However, by creating the snapshot, everyone's personal bookmarks are lost after deploying the new package.
id=6830#respond Or the method I use is one that @gregneagle wrote about on his blog a few years ago, and that is to create a config for my company's settings: https://managingosx.wordpress.com/2008/08/18/firefox-default-settings/ Also discussed here: https://jamfnation.jamfsoftware.com/discussion.html?
id=9543#respond Your basic steps would be: \- updated Firefox on a machine\- make the config changes mentioned above to that Firefox installation\- Drag the file out of /Applications and into Composer\- Make a PKG or DMG in Composer You do not need to do a snapshot in Composer to do this, just drag and drop the app bundle. There's even an Auto PKG recipe to take your file of settings and download new versions of Firefox and automagically integrate your settings into that app package.
That will leave the user folders untouched and only update the actual app. We do things like disable automatic updates, disable saved passwords, etc. I deploy the ESR with the home page set, our proxy certificates imported, and updates disabled.
If Firefox appears to have lost your settings and bookmarks, follow these steps to restore your Firefox profile.
Before you begin, you'll need to close Firefox if it's running, so open this page in Internet Explorer so you can follow along with the instructions. Open the Start menu and in the Search Box type "-Profile Manager" 2.
Hello All, I'm in a bit of a predicament and seeking your advice.I would like to keep our environment of about 400 macs updated with Firefox as Mozilla releases updates.My goal is to update Firefox on each machine without losing everyone's personalized bookmarks.I am able to do this just fine, but I also want to customize the update to turn off "Update Notifications" popups.This is to prevent tens of help desk tickets from being submitted every time employees see the annoying "Update Available" pop up on their screens.I have been able to create a policy that disables the "Update Available" popup by using a snapshot in composer.
