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.
