.exe /INI="path\inifile" Start Menu Shortcuts=false ignored
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Safari/537.36 Edge/15.15063 Steps to reproduce: - downloaded Firefox Setup 62.0.3.exe - unzipped with 7zip - added Settings / Modifications (Mozilla.cfg etc.) - made deployment package as usual - ini File contains "StartMenuShortcuts=false" - install command line: Setup.exe /INI="(path to ini-file)\override.ini" Actual results: A shortcut in Startmenu was created Expected results: No shortcut in startmenu shall be created (as in versions before)
Thanks for reporting this. I've reproduced the bug and I'll start working on it immediately. For a workaround, change "StartMenuShortcuts" to "StartMenuShortcut" (remove the 's' on the end). Both of those are supposed to work, but only the second one does.

Given that we're early in the cycle, did you want to nominate this for Beta uplift?
I can, it's very low risk, but there is an easy workaround available (see comment 1) and the impact is pretty low (not a ton of unattended installs happening off of ESR).
