How do I surpress the browser opening the "Updated" splash page when it updates?

I need to set up the browser for people who don't know anything about computers other then you click this and things happen. I have the browsers set to automatically update, and every time it does, I get a help desk call to their station with "The browser just did something strange."

Get tired of that, I only want to be bothered with real help calls you know.

Create a file user.js in the \defaults\profile folder (you need to create that folder) in the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) or copy that file to an existing profile folder to set the pref browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone to ignore.

user_pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone", "ignore");

Browser does not use that folder.

Directly used the entry that exists in about:config and works as expected.

My userbase will tolerate the applying updates dialogs, they are used to things updating without annoying "What's new" splash webpages.

Thanks for the pointer.
