User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092510 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3

Firefox (and Thunderbird) can be installed silently by "-ms" option, but uninstaller always shows its dialog. We have no way to do uninstallation silently.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start <Firefox installed dir>\uninstaller\helper.exe with "-ms" option.

Actual Results:  
An uninstallation wizard appears.


Expected Results:  
Firefox is uninstalled silently.

Old Netscape 7 uninstaller (NSUninst.exe) handled "-ms" option and silent uninstallation was available. For commercial use, we possibly need to uninstall Firefox (or Thunderbird) silently, but now we can't.

Oh, I found the correct option! It is "/S" instead of "-ms", for Firefox and Thunderbird. I'm very sorry.
