I am encountering an issue where I am unable to update from within my browser (Help->About). I have confirmed that the policies.json ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution\policies.json") has "DisableAppUpdate": false, to ensure I am not blocking myself. As of now if I try to update it gives me a prompt saying: "Updates avaliable at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new" Is I give myself administrator access then I get normal behavior and the browser begins updating automatically.

The odd thing is if I modify the permissions on C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory to allow normal users the ability to write/modify its contents then the Normal User Account is then able to update the browser as desired. The obviously solution is to just modify the permission and allow Normal Users to update. But I am hoping you have a better solution that more precise because I am concerned of the security impact of opening the directory to all users.

Is there a specific file/sub directory I can give them access to that accomplishes the same thing or is there a setting I need to change on the installer that would fix this.

Thanks!

This is something that occurs with Windows O/S system if there is a password locked Admin and Limited user account. You must be in Admin or type the password in Limited user account to update the Browser. This isn't a FireFox behavior but a block created when you created the Admin password lock account. If no accounts have password it will auto update if that is the default. But also if you install the system maintenance option it will also try to check and update as well beside asking do you want to update or dismiss or pass on the update. So one needs to check their Admin account to see what the settings are.
