Hi,

We are about to enable SSO in our environment. As a result, I need to modify the value for user_pref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "my domain");>>prefs.js.

I created a simple .bat file to make the necessary mod and add the line to pref.js. When I run the file it outputs the prefs.js to the same location, not the Mozilla AppData folder. We are a Win7 environment with folder redirection enabled. Therefore, our user's Mozilla AppData folder is located at \\my domain\dfs\XenDesktop\Profiles\username\AppData\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default (random default profile name). My question is what is the best course of action to add this pref. to all PC user's pref.js file? keep in mind the pref.js is located on the hidden network path I included above. I apologize if my question is not easy to understand.

Cor-el, thank you once again for your help. I was able to use lockPref, to set the value for, network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.

I'm all set.

You can use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify new (default) values.

Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift

See:

You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:

defaultPref();  // set new default value
pref();         // set pref, but allow changes in current session
lockPref();     // lock pref, disallow changes

cor-el, thanks for you reply.

Yesterday, prior to my post, I did try the mozilla.cfg method. I read your reply to another FF user's, similar question. Here are my complete steps. 1. created a txt file with the following info: defaultPref("network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris", "ngs.org"); // set new default value 2. saved the file as mozilla.cfg 3. dropped the file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox 4. Created local-settings.js with the following info: pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift 5. dropped the file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref

When I launch Firefox the network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris should say ngs.org, but the value is still blank.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Make sure that the mozilla.cfg file starts with a line that only has a comment (//)

It is possible the defaultPref() is broken as I've seen some reports about this and don't know if this is already fixed in Firefox 16.
To check that you can try one of the other functions to see if they work.
