Guide to Deploying Mozilla Firefox in an Enterprise Published

Friday March 30th, 2007

Mozilla developer Michael Kaply has written a six-part series of weblog posts describing how to deploy Mozilla Firefox 2 within an enterprise or similar institution. The series is aimed at organisations that cannot deploy standard Firefox releases for some reason and need to distribute customised builds to their users. It focuses on the Microsoft Windows version of Firefox.

The first part of the series covers how to check out the Firefox code and build it. Part two describes how to use Mike's CCK Wizard to create an extension that applies enterprise-specific Firefox customisations. The third part discusses creating a Firefox installer. Parts four and five detail how to create Firefox update files and how to set up a server for deploying Firefox updates respectively. The final part covers some miscellaneous topics relating to deploying Firefox in the enterprise. There's also a FAQ about enterprise Firefox deployments, which was published between parts two and three.
