Can I use 'policies.json' file to configure firefox browser? Or it is only allowed with firefox for enterprise?

I am just working on firefox extension and I want to make some policies in my project. My policies.json file include : {

 "policies": {
   "Extensions": {
     "Install": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/myExtensionId.xpi"],
     "Uninstall": ["myExtensionId"],
     "Locked":  ["myExtensionId"]
   }
 }

} I have placed my policies.json in "/usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.json". But still i am not observing any change in behavior of browser. I am using firefox 27.0 on ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (64-bit)

This should work, but with only "Install" option. Check out the about:policies page.

I observed it only once that it automatically installed my extension, but later upon uninstalling and removing my extension, and after restarting firefox and system it is not being installed onward. I am also trying to prevent user from uninstalling and removing that extension upon installation that's why I have written other policies. P.S: Just for clarification, I am using firefox 27.0
