I have read all of the articles regarding this and most of them seem outdated. I have tried every solution online so far, and all of them seem to point me close to the right direction but not fully there. I extracted the components of Omni.ja to see if I could edit (defaults\profile\firefox.js) but that directory does not exist within Omni.ja. I could really use some help.

Philpp thanks for the quick response. The configuration file is now recognized by the java script and the one example in the http://kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences article shows locked under about:config! For whatever reason there is something wrong on the syntax for these other settings //Firefox Settings

lockPref(“security.tls.version.min”, 1);
lockPref(“security.default_personal_cert”, “Ask Every Time”);

lockPref(“network.protocol-handler.external.shell”, false);

lockPref(“plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types”, “application/pdf,application/fdf,application/xfdf,application/lsl,application/lso,application/lss,application/iqy,application/rqy,application/xlk,application/xls,application/xlt,application/pot,application/pps,application/ppt,application/dos,application/dot,application/wks,application/bat,application/ps,application/eps,application/wch,application/wcm,application/wb1,application/wb3,application/rtf,application/doc,application/mdb,application/mde,application/ad,application/,application/adp”);
