Hi, trying to setup local update server for Firefox, and I hit on a problem:

Was testing on my PC which has for multiple reasons "normal" Firefox and get to the point where updates from local server are working, but then tried to test the PC where the ESR version is installed - was expecting the update will not be found, and I would download the MAR files for ESR, edit the update.xml.... but the ESR Firefox found and downloaded the "normal" update, but of course could not install it.

Is there a way to set in XML file that one update is only for ESR and another for Rapid release version of Firefox? How to setup local update server for both channels simultaneously?

Another minor question - is there a simple way how to get buildID for/from downloaded prebuild MAR file? Without it the in the XML file update process don't work correctly and only place I found it so far is in source code for that build.

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm trying to deploy Firefox with several languages.

I followed the guide on [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/deploying-firefox-language-packs].

Everything work fine until I set up ExtensionSettings policy. This policy hide and block languages menu.

After scratching my head for a while, I finally figured out how to do it. I would to like to know if an easier way to whitelist all locales and dictionaries. I would like to only control the extensions.

<enabled/> <data id="ExtensionSettings" value=' {

 "*": {
   "blocked_install_message": "Blocked by your administrator.",
   "installation_mode": "blocked",
   "allowed_types": ["extensions", "dictionary", "locale"]
 },
 "uBlock0@raymondhill.net": {
   "installation_mode": "force_installed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/ublock-origin/latest.xpi"
 },

"qwantcomforfirefox@jetpack": {

   "installation_mode": "force_installed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3658805/latest.xpi"
