Muicir, Your question is not really clear. If you would explain what you want to do in more detail, It might get answered. I am fairly technically able but still don't understand your question/problem.

Silent or unattended installs are mostly the creator of the program's responsibilities.
For most microsoft updates/products, there are silent install options.
You might need to run a specific service or some such to push these type installs however.

To find out if firefox has a silent install, search for it on Google for example.

Link to page with info on Ff silent install.
A topic on the mozilla forums about it.

You will have to do this research for every product you wish to silently install, as stated, it's not a standard option for all software, and if it is, the trigger/parameter for silent installs differs for each of'em.

Having the option to silent install or not is purely based on the program and if it provides such an option or not. You cannot do anything to control that. Often those unattended installs are triggered by passing some command line arguments to the installer, which take all the info they need from there instead of asking the user. The exact syntax and required parameters vary from program to program.
But generally speaking, you can't apply such things to every installer you have, because it's a developer decision to give you such capability, not a global option you can use for everything.
