To whom it may concern

I am testing the autoupdate on one of my vm`s and I cannot configure what we need.

Goal: - We would like to update firefox esr yearly with a package through sccm. - After installation or after first startup, firefox should imediately update to newest version - From then, firefox esr should installed newest version as soon as available and check daily for a new version


My Config:

// Enable updater lockPref("app.update.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.auto", true); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.silent", true); lockPref("app.update.timerFirstInterval", 60); lockPref("app.update.promptWaitTime", 60); lockPref("app.update.download.backgroundinterval", 0); lockPref("app.update.doorhanger", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false);


The config file was implemented. I could see the changes in about:config, but if I today distribute version 78.7.1 with the above config file, firefox esr does not automatically update to the newest version 78.8.0. Only if I open the settings or the help about.

What am I missing? How can I achieve that firefox will update silently(without user intervention) imediately to newest version after install and update regularly to newest version?

Hello community,

Here is the problem I am facing: There is a difference between the Handler settings that I deploy through GPO and the local settings of my client in the handlers.json file.

Here is an example with Adobe Acrobat Reader: Parameters injected via GPO:

[code]{"defaultHandlersVersion":{"fr":3},"mimeTypes":{"application/pdf":{"action":3,"extensions":["pdf"]}}}/code

Parameters received by the client (handlers.json):

[code]{"defaultHandlersVersion":{"fr":3},"mimeTypes":{"application/pdf":{"action":0,"ask":true,"extensions":["pdf"]}}}/code

ADM version: 2.1 Firefox ESR version: 78.1.0

What clues would you give me to explore to find the cause of this / these differences?
