Auto-update feature for school use

Posted

Is there a way that school administrators can set Firefox to automatically update, without having to provide admin credentials each time? This would make it significantly easier for them, and would encourage them to install FF by default, which they often don't do.

If this isn't currently a feature, are there efforts to get there already? Or a feature request I can watch? Otherwise, where could I go to request it myself?

Yes, that can be controlled thru the operating system, but that topic is beyond the scope of this end-user support forum.

Please see this support article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/where-go-developer-support

Specifically - Post a question to the Mozilla Developer Network's Stack Overflow page. Someone there should be able to provide guidance to you that you can forward to your IT staff. But keep in mind that your IT department might be unwilling to more than double the amount of work they have to do.
