How can I make general.useragent.locale variable

In our domain we have different user languages. Windows adapts it's gui depending on the username they login with. We have configured Firefox settings through GPO's and build a pakcage with the FF GPO add-in included, with also the 5 different language packs included we use in our domain. We can switch manually the GUI language, but we are looking for a way to automate this, depending on the profile language. I know we can change the user.js file, but I was wondering if there is a way to automate this through GPO's. Something like a variable we can place in the general.useragent.locale that looks for the sytem language? Or another way to automate this?

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

This is the second time this has happened!!! For whatever reason, Firefox has updated, rebooted itself while off line. When I attempt to log in, my original login homepage (My Yahoo) no longer auto boots in Firefox. I now login with the Firefox start page. When I attempt to change back to and reset my homepage to my original My Yahoo page, it will not set. When I close Firefox and restart, I once again get the Firefox start tab. I also can use a second browser, IE and that browser is working just fine. All of my bookmarks remain in tact on the Firefox home page. The only thing that seems to not be working is the auto load to my original homepage "My Yahoo". While I like the security offered by Firefox and regularly use it as my preferred browser, this is VERY frustrating and I would like to find a way to restore my homepage to My Yahoo.

I created a sync account in June 2012 and synced it periodically. In early January 2014, I was having some pc issues so I backed up all my data on my pc and dropped it off to Best Buy/Geek Squads. My pc has been repaired and returned back to me today. However, it has been reset to factory settings, which meant I had to reinstall Firefox. Of course I no longer had my original recovery key so I had to choose the "no longer have my device" option so that I could recover the recovery key code. So now I am trying to pull in my synced data from the synced Firefox account and I see nothing. I know I am not doing something right. I am not trying to sync on a second device- it is technically the same device. I am just trying to pull in what was previously synced. I feel like a lot of the other forums are for pairing. It's almost as if once I logged into my Firefox account today and recovered the code- like there is a new account. I need to access my bookmarks- they are very important. Thanks!

I read the solution to this from various posts but there's a problem with that solution.

Tools>Options>Advanced>"Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload a page"

Un-checking the redirect block is a Global setting. I want to know how to allow redirect/reload pages for sites I use every day as friendly sites. I do not want to turned off for the entire world wide web. Otherwise, why even have this security setting at all? I've already added my usual sites to my Privacy exception list hoping that will work but that list is ignored by the redirect security warning. The "Allow" popup is a real pain so the entire feature has to be disabled. Like I said, what's the point of having this feature.

Firefox - Please provide an exception list for Redirect warnings.

i receive the Telegraph by email each day without a subscription,. when I used Internet explorer the email link would open the Telegraph page and let me read it. now I am using Firefox, much much better, when this links from my email it opens the window then a second window that askes me to subscribe to the Telegraph and will not let me read the page. Why is this and how can I make it work like it does on Internet Explorer?

Thanks for your help. so glad my daughter got me onto Firefox.
