Integrating Firefox in the SteadyState Update Process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to integrate Firefox in the SteadyState scheduled update process, in the same way as it is possible with some antivirus applications?
    If so, one would have to write a script for this, right? Does anybody know if such a script already exists?
    It would be nice if Firefox could update itsself automatically with turned on Windows Disk Protection.

    Hi, I'd like to inform you that currently we do not have existing script for Firefox. As we do not support custom script development in this forum, you will need to write your own custom update script. When you write a custom script, please pay attention to the following:


    1. Custom scripts must be written so that they return only after actions in the custom script have been completed.


    2. If a custom script update on a Windows SteadyState computer requires any resources during a scheduled update, such as a valid network connection, the resource must be available at the time of the update.


    3. If the program shows any blocking UI (for example, a dialog that requires user interaction), then the updates will fail.


    Also, you can refer to the following thread regarding script:


    Script with schedule update at certain time and disk protection on and set to remove changes


    Thanks for your understanding.
