Silent install of extension on MAC os

Hello!

I can successfully install a Firefox extension, enabled, on Windows OS using the autoconfig.js in conjunction with mozilla.cfg. However, in MAC OS I can get the extension to install but it still prompts me to install, unlike Windows. It’s as if the mozilla.cfg file is not taking effect and overriding the prompt. Here is where I placed the files:

1) Copied the autoconfig.js file under Applications/firefox.apps/contents/Resources/defaults/pref.

autoconfig.js has:

// Comments - do not remove this line pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

2) Copied the mozilla.cfg under Applications/firefox.apps/contents/. Note: I tried putting the mozilla.cfg file in different locations as well. No luck.

Mozilla.cfg has:

pref("extensions.enabledScopes", 15); pref("extensions.autoDisableScopes", 0); pref("extensions.enabledAddons", true);

Any suggestions?

Thanks Danny

Sorry to waste a posting. I was able to find a separate MAC machine and my steps worked on that machine. Not sure why two Sierra machines would behave differently. I will look into that.
