According to this info, it may seems this command line option have been removed from v4 onwards. (info at the end of page)

Hi, actually you can customize your firefox install :lol:

just run the installer and check your temp files (Run %temp%) then locate the extracted files of your firefox installer, copy that folder to another location, then go to .\core\defaults\ and make a new folder called "profile" there you can customize the default profile adding addons or settings and to install it silently just run setup.exe -ms

Can you please be more specific how to add the extensions and create default profile withour installing it first? Do you have some sample files?
