Enterprise Deployment - Firefox no longer copies prefs.js from Programs Files to user profile on first startup

Posted

We deploy Firefox via SCCM and have a custom Prefs.js file that is used. Prior to Firefox version 24, Firefox used to copy the prefs.js from the Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile folder to the user profile on first startup of Firefox after the install. Version 24 no longer does that.

This behavior is occuring with Windows XP and Windows 7.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank You.
