I want to set accessibility.blockautorefresh to false permanently

I use Firefox at work and we use several applications that need to auto refresh. I set accessibility.blockautorefresh to False every day and once I close my browser and open it again it sets it to true. I'm not sure if this is the computer or not, but does anyone have any idea how I can set this up so I don't have to change it every day?

You can check if you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs# each time Firefox starts. The user.js file will only be present if you or other software has created this file and normally won't be present.

You can check its content with a text editor (right-click: "Open with"; do not double-click). The user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in this file, so preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session.

You can delete the user.js file if you didn't create this file yourself.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
