Advice on deploying Firefox 3 via GPO

Is there a way to affordably deploy the latest version of Firefox using GPO and AD?

I looked at FrontMotion but I might as well buy a repackager for that price. Is there an open source solution available to convert Firefox to .MSI?

Thanks

it looks like making MSI was in the plans (http://download-firefox.org/mozilla/firefox-30-will-offer-the-msi-installer-mozilla-firefox-is-targeting-the-untouched-corporate-market/) , but somehow it did not materialize.

See this: http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla.community.enterprise/browse_thread/thread/8fe225a7e5c89e7c


I think at this point the only straightforward way is to repackage. As far as I know, there are no free tools for that.

I think I will repackage it into MSI in coming weeks.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I haven't found a test machine yet, without version 3.
