The issue is that to be able to deploy my customized user.js i need to access this path : C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default. Why ? Because the folder ending with .default is created with a 8 alpha-digit units. So i'm looking for a script to retrieve it from the profile.ini (path: C:\Users\%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox) Or for any other solutions ? ;) Thanks !

Thanks for the link, it helped me find this article : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/F.../Enterprise_deployment

For others, here are my cfg for disabling updates for firefox : // Disable updater lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); // make absolutely sure it is really off lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); //personal config lockPref("app.update.migrated.updateDir", true); lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);

Thanks again for that quick respond.

Consider an autoconfig file which goes into the program folder and applies to all profiles.

I don't have a lot of links for that at my fingertips, but my address bar remembers this one:
