I am trying to implement a policies.json file in 32-bit Firefox 78.6.1 ESR on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. With Firefox not running, I have created a distribution folder as follows:
C:\Program Files(x86)\Mozilla Firefox\distribution
The folder contains a policies.json file with the following script:
There are no Registry settings concerning this on my computer. Although the computer is joined to a domain, there are no Firefox GPOs in place.
When I run Firefox I do not get any error messages. about:support indicates that the Enterprise policies are active. about:policies only lists a certificate policy; DisableAppUpdate does not appear there. in the Options menu I see "Your browser is being managed by your organization" at the top, but in the Firefox Updates section I still have the two items:
Automatically install updates (recommended)
Check for updates but let you choose to install them
The second option is checked.
After creating the policies.json file I expected to see nothing in the Firefox Updates section except a message stating updates have been disabled, and I expected to see DisableAppUpdates listed in about:policies.
What am I doing wrong?
