Trying to setup a group policy to force auto detect proxy setting on multiple machines on our network

We have the proxy configured on our computers to use a pac file, now we need to remove the pac and set it to auto detect proxy on our network. Do you have a adm file that works with 7.0.1 or another way to push this out on multiple pc's.

You can use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify new (default) values.

Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift

See:

You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:

defaultPref();  // set new default value
pref();         // set pref, but allow changes in current session
lockPref();     // lock pref, disallow changes
