Hi,

I'm used to deploying/configuring Firefox in an organization with settings in autoconfig.js, etc. Recently, I've seen that some settings are honored, others aren't, so I started using policies.json as well as keeping my autoconfig.js. Can they work together?

In any case, I am unable to disable app update with either of them. I have the following in policies.json:

{

   "policies": {

"DisableFirefoxAccounts": true, "DisablePocket": true,

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true, "DNSOverHTTPS": { "Enabled": false }, "Certificates": { "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true } "PopupBlocking": { "Allow": ["http://10.215.144.56:8080", "https://intranet.mydomain.org"], "Default": true | false, "Locked": true | false }

   }

}

I'm also showing a snippet of my autoconfig.js file:

lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.url", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.details", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.manual", ""); lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);

The problem is that when I start Firefox 78.3.0 ESR and go to the about Firefox window, I can see that the app update is not disabled.

How can I make sure that all the above settings in autoconfig.js are actually honored?

Thanks

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?

Hi,

I am running Firefox 74.0 on Windows 10 (1709). I have created a policies.json file and saved this in `C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution`.

The settings within it are not being applied. I tried to put this same policies.json file in a new folder named `distribution` under Firefox's binary location in a Linux environment and the policies didn't apply there either.

File as below:

{

 "policies": {
   "Certificates": {
     "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true,
     "Install": [
       "cert.pem"
     ]
   },
   "Homepage": {
     "StartPage": "homepage",
     "URL": "http://<our homepage redacted>"
   },
   "Proxy": {
     "AutoLogin": false,
     "HTTPProxy": "http://<proxy server redacted>:<port redacted>",
     "Mode": "system",
     "SOCKSVersion": 4,
     "UseHTTPProxyForAllProtocols": true,
     "UseProxyForDNS": false
   }
 }

}

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Kind regards, Edan
