# fxbootstrap

A simple command line tool for launching Firefox with a temporary profile.

## Installation

` $ pip install fxbootstrap `

## Launching Firefox

Running fxbootstrap will download and install the latest Firefox Nightly for your platform to a temporary directory. It will then generate a clean profile and launch Firefox using the new profile.

` $ fxbootstrap ✔ Downloaded Firefox to /var/folders/wz/3v_j7g2n2zx_q6qs8g7vmyg00000gn/T/tmpg_WfUI/2018-11-05-22-01-07-mozilla-central-firefox-65.0a1.en-US.mac.dmg ✔ Installed Firefox in /private/var/folders/wz/3v_j7g2n2zx_q6qs8g7vmyg00000gn/T/tmpg_WfUI/Firefox ✔ Generated profile at /var/folders/wz/3v_j7g2n2zx_q6qs8g7vmyg00000gn/T/tmpRZox06.mozrunner 🦊 Running Firefox Nightly 65.0a1 (20181105220107) `

After closing Firefox, the temporary directory containing the binary, installation, and the profile will be deleted.

## Installing add-ons

Add-ons can be installed into the Firefox instance by passing one or more paths to XPI file(s) on the command line:

` $ pipenv run fxbootstrap --addon fbcontainer.xpi --addon fxlightbeam.xpi `
