Mozilla Firefox Browser Layer Definition File
The Mozilla Firefox Browser Layer Definition File (LDF) provides a mechanism for customers of Symantec Workspace Virtualization to create the Virtual Application Layer and package without the need to capture the installation.
- Symantec Workspace Virtualization v6.4 SP7 or greater
- Symantec Workspace Virtualization Layer Definition Tool. Download.
The steps for creating the Mozilla Firefox Browser Layer are very straight-forward.
1. Extract the download that accompanies this article to your desktop (Firefox<AppVersion>-x.x.x.x.zip - where<AppVersion> is the version of Mozilla Firefox and -x.x.x.x is the LDF version).
2. Double-Click the .EXE file Firefox<AppVersion>-x.x.x.x.exe). This will invoke swvldf.exe (Layer Definition Tool) with the proper parameters to create the Mozilla Firefox Browser Layer.
NOTE: As a security precaution, right click the extracted .exe file, select properties and check the "Digital Signatures" tab and ensure that "Symantec Corporation" appears in the Signature List. If the .EXE is not digitially signed with the Symantec Certificate do not run the executable on your system.
Supported OS Platforms
Mozilla Firefox Browser Virtualized has been tested and validated to work on the following OS platforms:
|Windows XP SP3||X|
|Windows 7 32 bit||X|

The LDF will download the following files:
7 Zip command line utility - this is required to expand the Mozilla Firefox Installer
Mozilla Firefox Installer
If the swvldf.exe tool is unable to download these files, click the above links and save the files to a directory named "downloads" in the same directory where the *.LDF file resides.
This LDF package is based on the "Portable Apps" version of Mozilla Firefox. The LDF package does not contain any Mozilla Firefox files, it contains a definition of all the files required to build a virtual application package. The portable structure is in no way required to virtualize this application. Use of the PortableApps files is convenient because the file download is reliable and the application structure complies with a well-known structure which facilities the creation of shortcuts using the LDF.
