I am reviewing my user.js and pref.js files in anticipation of deploying policy settings in GPO. As a part of the review, I am trying to document what each of the preferences in those files actually do, in order to be able to see in the future why a setting was set the way it was.
I am presently at the preference "pref.browser.language.disable_button.remove". Based on the name of the preference, I would think that if set to true, it would disable the remove button in the Webpage Language Settings window. (Hamburger menu -> Settings -> General -> Language -> Choose your preferred language for displaying pages)
When I set it to true, it does not disable the remove button but when I use the remove button, the preference is set to false.
Am I misunderstanding the purpose of this preference or is there more to using this preference than just setting its value in about:config?
Also, I see there are a number of other preferences that contain disable_button but that only one, "pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords", has a GPO policy for setting. I would expect that these preferences containing disable_button would all work in a similar way just each for a different button in the Firefox GUI.
If it matters, I'm running Firefox 115.3.1esr 64-bit en-ca on Windows 10.
