Some new preferences in Firefox 8.0

Post by trockenasche » Wed Nov 23, 2011 12:11 pm

Hey,
I think this are some handy preferences for deploying Firefox 8.0

Code: Select all

startup.homepage_override_url
The URL that Firefox goes to when the user starts up the browser after upgrading. In Firefox, defaults to
http://%LOCALE%.www.mozilla.com/ %LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/whatsnew/.
more information http://kb.mozillazine.org/Startup.homepage_override_url

Code: Select all

startup.homepage_welcome_url
The URL that Firefox goes to when the user starts up the browser after the initial installation, or with a new profile. In Firefox, defaults to
http://%LOCALE%.www.mozilla.com/ %LOCALE%/%APP%/%VERSION%/firstrun/.
more information http://kb.mozillazine.org/Startup.homepage_welcome_url

both must be activate and empty if u don't want to show the "welcome" page



and also u may want to disable the new add-on control at the first start of firefox 8 after upgrading

Code: Select all

extensions.shownSelectionUI
and set it to true/activate
