I am trying to create a custom Firefox install for deployment on many desktops. I have seen posts saying to create an override.ini file with:


Also create a mozilla.cfg file with:

//Firefox Default Settings

//disable default browser check
pref(“browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser”, false);

// disable application updates
pref(“app.update.enabled”, false);

//use classic downloader
pref(“browser.download.useDownloadDir”, false);

// Do not redirect user to the homepage override URL
lockPref(“browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone”, “ignore”);

// The URL to use as a homepage when the browser starts after an upgrade
lockPref(“startup.homepage_override_url”, “”);

// The URL to display upon loading Firefox with a new profile for the first time
lockPref(“startup.homepage_welcome_url”, “”);

// Disables ‘Know your rights’ message on first launch
lockPref(“browser.rights.3.shown”, true);

// Disables popup-blocker, enabling pop-ups.
lockPref(“dom.disable_open_during_load”, false);

// Disables remembering passwords
lockPref(“signon.rememberSignons”, false);

// Disables “I am about to enter an encrypted page” warning
lockPref(“security.warn_entering_secure”, false);

// Automatically Check For Updates to: Installed Add-ons
lockPref(“extensions.update.enabled”, false);

And finally a local-settings.js with:

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

I have placed the override.ini and mozilla.cfg in the program files folder and the local-setting.js file in the defaults folder.
However, it will not load my desired homepage and still asks to set as default browser. Am I missing something?
