Redirect folders wrong profile version

Posted

Hello. At the office we use roaming profiles. Until now everything worked fine. Until we got upto version 67.* Many users get an error that their profileversion doesn't match the firefox version. I have the TS on version 67.0.4 but the client computers have most 67.0.3 because updates do not happen at the same moment. Updates will be applied when computer is on but nobody is logged in. But if somebody already on 0.4 version goes to a computer with version 0.3 they get an error. They need to create a new profile and then they can update ... Then they call me where are their favorites etc ..... Then I restore their profile and everything is working again as it should But the version error I never had and we already use this sins 01/2018 ..... If the versions difference is VERY large I can understtand .. but 67.0.3 / 37.0.04 is just a minor update. So tonight i'm forced to update all computers to make everything even .......

Why is this an issue now and can it be turned 'off' again? It has never been an issue on what version people are ..

See Dedicated profiles per Firefox installation. You can override it by launching Firefox with the --allow-downgrade parameter.

Thx. I now know why it happens. Don't like the update ... but I know what to do. Will disable firefox updates and see if we can upgrade all at the same time in the future.
