Firefox workaround

Excerpted from: "How do I whitelist Firefox installations from my Cryptolocker SRP GPO?"

I have the group policy to prevent crypto-locker and I needed to install FF on a single machine.
Here is the process:
Download "firefox setup stub.exe"
Move it somewhere other than downloads. I used c:\temp.
Open a command window (with admin privileges).
Type these commands: (c:\temp is used for this example)
set temp = c:\temp
set tmp = c:\temp
cd \temp
Run your firefox setup.
Worked like a charm for me.

This worked for me, too.

Now, I believe that if I set Firefox NOT to automatically update, it will not draw Cylance's ire.

Time will bell.
