Firefox:How to deploy custom subscription list to all users?

Postby FR6 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 9:32 am

Hi all,

I would like all users on a computer to have access to the same subscription list based on our web server.
One way for existing firefox profile is to alter patterns.ini to add the new list. But this seems to no te OK for new FF profiles.
And it's not so easy while FF profiles are stored in custom folders...
Is there a way to centralize this kind of config so that all users share the same params ?

Thanks for your help

Hi,

I followed the instructions explained in viewtopic.php?f=21&t=25609 and it works great !
The next problem is that today, the extension upgraded to 2.6.10 and the config is lost :( The centralized patterns.ini is no longer taken in account.... replaced by the default one in %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\...\adblockplus
Is there a way to keep my params ? Or must i disable autoupdate of AdblockPlus ?

Any help appreciated
Thanks
