Offline Silent Command line install works for me:
- Downloaded "firefox setup 62.03.exe" from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/?q=English%20(British)
- Ran elevated command line install "firefox setup 62.03.exe" -ms
- Installs silently, without "Now installing Firefox" prompts.

  • by "elevated command line install" you mean I should chose the option "Override default installation" in installation options and type ' "firefox setup 62.03.exe" -ms ' in the full command line field? I apologize, I am new to this.
    • that means he tested in Command Prompt, not in KACE
      • So is there a way to avoid the "Now loading" screen in KACE at all or no?
    • >that means he tested in Command Prompt, not in KACE
      More correctly, in a command prompt which was opened with administrator-level privileges.

I use SCCM for deployments, not KACE. As indicated silent install runs from the command prompt, so must be a specific KACE setting.

  • I just tested a managed install with -ms parameters , 100% silent, all good.

    Review your permissions settings, maybe reupoad the EXE file.

    KACE version 9.
    Win7 and Win10, managed install worked 100% silent.
