An about:config setting is locked and cannot be unlocked
I ask for you help to unlock a locked about:config setting.
I am on Microsoft Windows 10. I have this locked setting in about:config
Prefercence Name signon.rememberSignons Status locked Type boolean Value false
and want to change it. I looked for the origin of the setting and decided to delete those files:
* C:/Users/myuser/AppData/Local/Downloaded Apps/Firefox/autoupd/App/Firefox/mozilla.cfg * C:/Users/myuser/AppData/Local/Downloaded Apps/Firefox/autoupd/App/Firefox64/mozilla.cfg * C:/Users/myuser/AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/3fz35m4h.default/cache2/entries/A7076C7AD824717724F23B6C27CC5519300AEFB3 * C:/Users/myuser/AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/3fz35m4h.default/cache2/entries/* * C:/Users/myuser/AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/3fz35m4h.default/startupCache/*
Some of those (mozilla.cfg;cache2/enctries/) files contained the value
I am not able to alter the setting signon.rememberSignons; It is still locked. There are no Microsoft Group Policies in enforcement; What holds the setting in locked state?

Enter about:policies in the URL bar. Do you have any active policy?
