user.js file not working for new preference
I noticed that the secure URL padlock icon is now grey instead of green. This is intuitively wrong: it makes me think it's not really secure, so I found on another forum the about: config setting for this and changed it back to green. I have about 20 FF profiles across several devices, and these all share a common user.js file which I edit in a Dropbox folder and copy to all the profiles. I placed this setting into the common user.js file:
But it doesn't work. Do I have the syntax wrong, or is there another setting for this?

Did you confirm via about:config that the pref is actually set to false and that there isn't a problem with the user.js file?
Note that you can also set prefs via an autoconfig.cfg file for all profiles used by a specific Firefox installation.
In about:config the pref remained at true. I checked the prefs.js file and the pref had not been copied from user.js. To check that the user.js file is not corrupt, I changed the setting of a random existing pref in user.js. This was copied correctly and was applied. So it's this particular pref that is not being copied.
Thank you for the information about autoconfig.cfg. I didn't know about that, so I'll try it.
