we are still on 7.3.1 and it showed up as a script as well. Normally I make a dmg in composer and make the path


I haven’t dragged the app into Casper admin without making it a dmg.

When I drop the .app in it thinks it is a script but in previous versions I have been able to just drop apps in Casper admin and it would recognize it as an app. I just did a quick preinstall build with composer and it remedied the problem

Has anyone been able to manage Firefox 5's preferences through MCX or some other method?

There are some specific things we wish to ensure they are set before deploying.

Look at universal installs for extensions and the CCK extension. It allows you to deploy certain preferences

try the updated cck extension to set your defaults.

Hi Nate,

I successfully created the new CCKwizard ,in the past I used it on Firefox
3.6 and it works wonder. But I have to copy to the whole Default Profile
setting across. I am trying to move away from that solution.

I tried the solution
/ with no result.

I copy my local user extension profile into /Library/Application
Support/Mozilla/Extensions/{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384} and
create a new local user Test1.

Test1 user didn't pick up the defaults .

Any suggestion why ?
