Disable AutoUpdate during Install

Post by teknikewl » Fri May 23, 2014 9:26 am

Is there a way to modify the MSI file to disable auto.update for FF by default? I have looked through the MSI with InstED! but I cannot find the option

Auto update is disabled by default by the mozilla.cfg file.

Install (or admin install with msiexec /a) and review Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg and you should see

Code: Select all

lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);
lockPref("app.update.autoUpdateEnabled", false);
lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);
lockPref("extensions.update.autoUpdateEnabled", false);
