Advice on deploying Firefox 3 via GPO

Posted on 2008-06-18

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?

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.
