Firefox updates when you create a new profile

Kuphostiwe

Hey there, I ALWAYS have and have had for years "Never Check For Updates" checked, EVERYTIME I create a new profile and even before it loads I go to Options/Advanced Update Tab, and quickly check "Never Check For Updates" and click okay, but then when I notice the darn thing is already updated to a newer version, because I also check the "About" for the version, THEN, when I go to a different profile it Updates to that newer version of course, it has always done this and been like this, There should be a way to stop it, like when you create a new profile it uses the update settings from other profiles, maybe other settings too, though Some might have qualms about that.

All profiles are independent of each other and it is your responsibility to set up new profiles properly.

You can initialize a profile by creating a browser\defaults\profile folder in the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) and place files like a user.js file in it. All files and folder in this directory will be copied to newly created profiles.

Note that the user.js file is read each time Firefox is started and initializes preferences to the value specified in the user.js file. Preferences set via user.js can only be changed temporarily for the current session, so you can remove or rename the user.js file once it has initialized the profile if there are prefs set via the file that you may want to change permanently.

Not exactly sure what you mean here, IF you mean to copy certain files into a directory then create a new profile, I can do that easy enough, just need to know all the files needed, user, Prefs Etc, IF on the other hand you are saying as the link suggests my preferences are not saved, and that is why it does this, I'm confused, the profiles I use DO in fact save my settings, prefs and stuff after I Set/Change them, it's the new profile I create that starts completely new/fresh and causes the problem. As for creating a profile Properly if one follows directions located at, "Use the Profile Manager to create and remove Firefox profiles" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles#w_starting-the-profile-manager Then I feel I have done this "Properly". So to sum up, sadly, I'm not exactly sure what you are saying. Maybe you misunderstood the problem? Maybe I'm confused?

You can make Firefox do this automatically if you create the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile\ folder and place the files in that folder.

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

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

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

These functions can be used in the mozilla.cfg file:

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