Hi all,

I've finally got approval to look at distributing Firefox for use in our environment but I can't find any helpful information on how I can distribute AND update it in an enterprise environment.  There's one method out there that I know of but it requires a Mac (which I don't have).

I need to be able to distribute a custom configuration and when the product needs an update it must be able to get them from an internal server so all our clients don't hammer our external links at the same time.

Is anyone aware of a way this can be done?  I'd love to stop being forced to use Internet Explorer (which sucks for many reasons).

Thanks in advance!

You could create MSI packages for the install and use group policy to push out the install to your workstations.
