I’m using Firefox snap on a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 install. In my company, all developers have the same configuration, so until now, they have to manually import our certification authority from the Firefox preferences. I tried to add a global override config file in
/etc/firefox/prefs, but it seems to not be read. On fresh install, there is a
/etc/firefox/pref/apturl.js which should call gnome software when I click on a
apt:// link. I say should because, in the preference window, I see the
apt:// link are called by system-handler instead of directly call gnome-software. I tried to delete the mentionned file, and my Firefox preferences are not altered.
I wonder if either the preferences are created during the profile creation (in this case, the described behaviour is expected), or if the config files in
/etc/firefox/prefs are not loaded during firefox startup.
Thanks for your help. Regards.
