SCCM 2012 Firefox install

I need some guidance on installing Firefox 32.0 (most recent version) via SCCM 2012.  Clients are all Windows 7 x64 in a windows domain environment.

I'm trying to use guides and files/scripts, such as those found here: http://stealthpuppy.com/prepare-mozilla-firefox-for-enterprise-deployment-and-virtualization/ but they continue to fail with error code 0x87D00324.

My deployment needs to be silent and disable automatic updates.

Thanks!

Have you tried breaking it down into pieces?  Using an administrative cmd prompt on a test machine, try running the installer manually, using the same command lines as your script does.  For example, cd to a local path that contains your firefox installer, then run each of these commands individually:
SET SOURCE=%~dp0
ECHO [Install] > %SOURCE%\Firefox.ini
ECHO InstallDirectoryPath=%INSTALLPATH% >> "%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"
ECHO QuickLaunchShortcut=false >> "%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"
ECHO DesktopShortcut=false >> "%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"
ECHO StartMenuShortcuts=true >> "%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"
ECHO MaintenanceService=false >> "%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"
START /WAIT "Firefox" /D "%SOURCE%" "FirefoxSetup21.exe" /INI="%SOURCE%\Firefox.ini"

Open in new window



Does the install complete successfully?  Do you get any errors?

Ok, the variable isn't working it sounds like.  Change the first line to:
SET SOURCE=<CurrentDirectory>

(Replace <CurrentDirectory> with the full path of the directory you're working in/saved the firefox installer in)

I was able to get this working using a slightly different set of scripts (here: http://www.itninja.com/software/mozilla/firefox-2/26-12).  Also noting that they never gave me the firefox.ini file they were referencing in the first one.

I did use your suggestion of using the command line to test each line of the script to check for errors.  So thank you much for that insight.
