Do "ESR Only" settings still work on non-ESR via .cfg file? Does GPO 'win' in this case?
We deploy Firefox with updates disabled by mozilla.cfg, but now the app is updating automatically.
- Mozilla.cfg - settings correct here
- Prefs.Js - shows update settings are not applied
- User.js - does not exist
In particular, the settings of auto-update, homepage, and similar ones noted as "ESR Only" have been ignored.
But those settings should be still working via Autoconfig, right?
\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Mozilla.cfg:
// Disable application auto-update lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.backgroundErrors", 2); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); (..and more)
\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\autoconfig.js:
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "Mozilla.cfg");
\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\channel-prefs.js:

Your issue to figure out a new cfg file, g'luck
Type about:preferences#advanced<enter> in the address bar. Under Advanced, Select Update.
[v56+] Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar. Select Update.
Select Never Check For Updates.
Also turn off Use a background service to install updates <Windows Only>
Further you can rename Updater.exe to updater-old.exe
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
Hi Blake, According to your data, you're using Firefox 59.0. Is your question about a deployment of Firefox ESR, not the version you're using?
// pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);
