DisableAppUpdate policy is stuck on no matter what I do. I have done:

Removed registry keys for firefox and confirmed that the registry key for the setting is non existent. Confirmed there is no policies.json file and tried to create a custom one with DisableAppUpdate set to false Completed removed firefox with revo uninstaller Deleted all appdata folder for firefox I confirmed the software that orginally set this setting has been removed. Uninstalled and rebooted several times

Could someone please help? Thanks!

You can check the about:policies#active page to see whether policies are active (63+).

You can inspect the Mozilla and Firefox keys with the Windows Registry Editor in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and in HKEY_CURRENT_USER with the Windows Registry Editor to see whether GPO policy rules are active.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\

Note that the mere presence of the "Mozilla\Firefox\" key is sufficient to make Firefox display this notification, so if you have the Firefox key then remove it and only leave the Mozilla key or remove this key as well if it is empty.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\ =>
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\
