I noticed that my mozilla.cfg stopped working with Beta updating to 62.0b19. I noticed two messages in the Browser console. The first about 'components' not being defined and the second about "Autoconfig is sandboxed by default" with a not working link to Enterprise Release Notes.

A search shows that this is about bug 1479857.

  • bug 1479857 - Add a preference (default off) for autoconfig sanboxing for first release

What will be the consequences of this sandbox and autoconfig.js when it will no longer be possible to disable this sandbox via general.config.sandbox_enabled?

Will that make it impossible to add specific code to an autoconfig file like setting the new tab page via aboutNewTabService or add other code that calls Services?
