i am trying to install firefox via puppet in Windows environment and i am using the option "install_options => [{'INSTALLDIR' => 'E:\Mozilla Firefox'},'/S']" to install firefox in E drive. But it installs firefox in default location C:\Program Files(86) and not in E drive. Is there other option to acheive this?

This question has very little to do with puppet. Try asking it on Firefox forums, and then post the answer here or delete the question altogether.

I am installing firefox via puppet and it has nothing to do with firefox. Puppet doesnot install in the desired directory and thats my question is about.

What is the respective command line to achieve your end (i.e., how would this be done without Puppet)?

cmd.exe /c "M:/Firefox/Firefox Setup 11.0.exe" /S'. yes there is no option to set the installation path in command line and so it is not possible via Puppet as well

Firefox has a configuration ini file that can be specified via command line. This ini file can define the installation directory. Kudos to Ravikumar for clarifying that you can't do it directly from command line using Puppet options.
