Hello,

I'm trying to update all Version of Mozilla Firefox to the latest Version with jsut one Update file.
As far as I can see, the normal way would be to create an update package for all old Versions individually, but I don't want to do this.

So any hint how to get this all in one update package? Thanks

Regards Andreas

Hi,

You can take the following course of actions, but please note that this approach to package distribution is not officially supported by Secunia, and are provided by courtesy to you. Use it on your own risk.

Ensure and consider the following two prerequisites:

a) Gather all systems that need Firefox into a single WSUS computers group (f.e. Firefox).
b) Ensure distribution of the update in a convenient time towards all recipients

Then you can take the following steps to create your package:

1. Find the most recent version of 'Mozilla Firefox' under Secunia Package System window.
2. Right-click and select 'Create Update Package' option.
3. Press OK on all following messages, then press Next at step 1 of SPS package wizard.
4. Find and enable the checkbox 'Mark Package as "AlwaysInstallable"'.
5. Click Next
6. Press Publish
7. Approve your package for the correct WSUS group (f.e. Firefox)

The expected result of this procedure is that all versions of Mozilla Firefox, installed in the default installation directory will be replaced by the latest version of Firefox patch you created and approved earlier. This scenario is not intended for non-default installations of Firefox.

You are recommended to test this scenario in a test lab, since it's not officially supported by CSC.

Kind regards,
/Rosen Danailov
