This process will be set to the language chosen during the installation of Cyberfox so if you had selected German then when the uninstall process takes place it will display in German.




Image
Here we have a new option to remove your profile data on uninstall like Mozilla Firefox's installer, We added an additional confirmation to help prevent accidental deletion of profile data.
Note: When uninstalling if you mistakenly select delete profile data and confirm it and complete the uninstall process then your profile data is gone and can not be recovered, Its permanently deleted.


Image
Here is the additional confirmation dialog added as an extra measure to prevent accidental deletion, Please read above information about the first step in the profile data deletion process.

Hiya!

Thats a very good work, thank you!

I hope this topic is right for some translations english -> german

It's only one, I'll bring more, when I use the Installer at the next time. ;)

------
"Cyberfox is already running. Please close Cyberfox then run the installer again."

"Cyberfox läuft bereits, bitte schließen Sie Cyberfox und führen Sie das Installationsprogramm erneut aus."

------

Greetings from Germany, Angie

Just read the translation from AngieKim.. perhaps I misunderstood you.
Toady, what do you want to say exactly: That the (former installed-the old version) browser is still running and has to be closed to start the installation programm to download the new one? Thats what my translation says.

Hope I got you right

Hi zuaber600

Yes your translation was spot on :D

The English message is
"Cyberfox is already running, Please close Cyberfox then run the installer again."
The message you provided is
"Cyberfox läuft noch. Bitte schliessen sie Cyberfox und starten sie den Installationsprozess erneut."
Which when translated to english looks like this
"Cyberfox is still running. Please close Cyberfox and start again the installation process."

So there is no issue with your translation, It has already being passed to the installer :)

We have just created the localization section for the installer as well Cyberfox installer localization

Your translation is great thank you.
AngieKim's is great as well.
They are both correct.

Does the new installer accept any silent switches? or command line params?

Very important and crucial for me to have those.

Yes it supports CMD arguments the same that were used on previous version, However with some of the changes we are still yet to determine how silent install and uninstall will go and identify the switches as with the new option to remove user profile on uninstall we may need to make it not able to run that command during silent uninstall, So please take caution running silent uninstall command until full information readout can be made.
