Setup defaults preferences for Adblock Plus data and patterns in prefs.js
I'd like to distribute Firefox with some pre-installed preferences (including Adblock Plus settings) in my organization.
Fallowing preferences setup via prefs.js don't work:
pref("extensions.adblockplus.data_directory", "\\\\" + getenv("USERDNSDOMAIN") + "\\App\\Firefox\\ESR\\adblockplus\\data\\") pref("extensions.adblockplus.patternsfile", "\\\\" + getenv("USERDNSDOMAIN") + "\\App\\Firefox\\ESR\\adblockplus\\patterns.ini");
Is Firefox allowing to use USERDNSDOMAIN or USERDOMAIN varibles in prefs.js? Is this syntax OK? Could someone help me to figure why it is not working?

The original links are broken here https://wiki.mozilla.org/Deployment:Deploying_Firefox I do not know if they still work. The old bug was never finished https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=267888
What is the error that you are receiving?

My problem has nothing to do with GPO, I did put my settings in CFG file.
As I describe in first post - I did set file and folder location for data and patterns of Adblock Plus in CFG file. AS long as I set absolute UNC path Adblock works fine, but as soon as I change path to use USERDOMAIN varible in path Adblock Plus can't find location of its files.
When I print USERDOMAIN varible in command line, it is displayed correctly. So I am almost sure it is something wrong with parsing config file by Firefox.
