jdclucidly asks: "I am a network administrator for a small non-profit (about 50 employees). I would like to roll Mozilla 1.2.1 out to all of our desktops. We don't have a single ghost image because the computers on site are too varied. Yes, I did my Googling. The source for the installer is just huge and mind boggling. Is there something like a Mozilla Administration Kit that will generate custom Mozilla installers? If not, would people on Slashdot be interested in starting a new project to make such a kit?" If you were going to deploy a "branded" version of Mozilla, company-wide, how would you do it, especially if you had to worry about a mixed OS environment?
"Here's what I want to do:
- Install everything but Quality Feedback Agent
- Set Mozilla as the default browser
- Disable 'Open Unrequested Windows' (kill pop-ups)
- Install Elveraldo's Crystal-Classic theme as default
- Set Google as the default search engine
- Set 'Georgia' as the default Serif font for Western and Unicode
- Enable HTTP Pipelining
- Enable FIPS internal cryptography
- Set toolbar to 'Pictures only'
- Set Home Page to my organization's intranet site
- Set start page to 'Blank page'
- Disable 'Hide the tab bar'
- Enable Middle-click for new tab
- Enable control+enter for new tab
- Default downloads to 'open a progress dialog'
- Enable quicklaunch
- Create an additional shortcut on the desktop and in quicklaunch that uses chrome/icons/mailnew.ico as it's source and points to 'mozilla.exe -mail'
- Directly modify the defaults/prefs/all.js file to incorporate my preference defaults above and then recompress the .XPI?
- Add to the installer Crystal-Classic.jar somehow? Where are those changes made?
- Make the installer NOT allow the user to change any of this?
- Make the installer create the above mentioned shortcut?"
