mozilla.cfg not being applied in Firefox 4

Posted

I am trying to get certain settings configured and locked using mozilla.cfg. We have used this exact method in Firefox 3.x but for some reason it is ignoring mozilla.cfg.

Here is my mozilla.cfg

//
try {
lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);
lockPref("app.update.autoUpdateEnabled", false);
lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", true);
lockPref("extensions.update.autoUpdateEnabled", true);
lockPref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "shpt1-ed1, sharepoint");
lockPref("network.cookie.alwaysAcceptSessionCookies", true);
lockPref("network.cookie.cookieBehavior", 1);
} catch(e) {
displayError("lockedPref", e);
}


and the appropriate all.js lines

pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // for MCD .cfg files
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

You can place a js file (local-settings.js) in the defaults\pref folder in the Firefox program folder. Firefox 4 no longer uses all.js , but packs all files in a special compressed (optimized) omni.jar archive and it is best not to tamper with that file.
