As an administrator we want to keep our software up-to-date. We have a weekly vulnerability scan that identifies Firefox as needing updates. I haven't found a clear full article that shows how to make that happen. Environment: Windows image is set with multiple browsers to support various products, one of them being Firefox. Users may or may not use Firefox. If they use it on a regular basis, the product is typically up-to-date. If the person doesn't use Firefox, the product isn't kept up to date.
For a test I downloaded and installed Firefox 68.12.00 ESR and created a policies.json file on my Windows laptop, placing it a newly created distribution folder in my Firefox program folder. My vulnerability report is flagging that. I need the software updated. I'm not using Firefox, it's just installed.
From my reading, much is unclear. 1.) How do I get auto updates to run on a set schedule that require no intervention and keep Firefox up-to-date? Where is the program to silently does the update? How to schedule it? Do I need a policy? 2..) Do I need a specific version (ESR) of Firefox to do this or can I use it with all versions of Firefox (Desktop, RR, ESR)?
Do you have a document that takes the administrator from beginning to end on such a automated process? Where is it?
