Choose which Firefox version you want to install with the silent installer. You have 3 options:
- the previous version
- the current version
- the next version (beta)
Choose your desired language from the combo box. A language is only listed in the combo box if there exists a corresponding language pack for the selected Firefox version.
To include common data (extensions, plugins, etc.) into the installer, FFaM needs to know the folder of your current Firefox installation. If you installed Firefox in a non-standard path, use the Firefox Installation Folder button to tell FFaM where it can find your current Firefox installation.
To include private data (bookmarks, passwords, etc.) into the installer, FFaM needs to know your current Firefox profile. Use the Firefox Profile to Use button to specify the profile.
The profile stores both common and private user data. You are able to include the extensions without personal information. This is usefull when creating an installer for multiple desktops/users.
Non-Standard Installation Path
If you want the installer to install Firefox under anything but the standard folder, use the Addon Installation Folder button to specify the path to that folder.
If you want the Firefox Profile folder to be in your desired location, you can use the Addon Profile Path button to specify the path to where Firefox stores the user profiles.
This is where it gets a bit tricky. If, you select a path for the profile and select a name for the profile, the folder selected will be the root folder that stores the profile folder with the name you selected. If, you only select a profile name, then the path will be the root folder that stores only 1 profile, no subfolders for additional profiles. You can also use the Addon Profile Folder Name button, to select a profile name. If you do not select a profile path, then the profile name you selected will be created in the default location.
Make sure you specified your current Firefox profile:
