SOLVED: Firefox Error: Updates Disabled By Your System Administrator

Post by h2oadmin » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:45 pm

Opening Mozilla Firefox, the going to Help, and About Firefox yields the following error: "Updates Disabled By Your System Administrator"

Verified Solution 8-8-2015:

Found Mozilla.cfg file located in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

Editing Mozilla.cfg with notepad shows:
//
lockPref("app.update.auto", false);
lockPref("app.update.enabled", false);


Changed this to:
//
lockPref("app.update.auto", true);
lockPref("app.update.enabled", true);

This resolved the issue.

Going to Help, About Firefox now updates the browser normally.
Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!
