Description Jaak Ristioja 2019-11-22 13:09:13 UTC
Currently policies.json is always overridden by the ebuilds:

  newins "${FILESDIR}"/disable-auto-update.policy.json policies.json

On my system it currently installs to /usr/lib64/firefox/distribution/policies.json, but as an administrator, I would like to be able to customize its contents somehow, without having each update or reinstall overwrite my changes.

Would it please be possible to relocate that file to /etc/ or some other CONFIG_PROTECT location? Or perhaps add /usr/lib64/firefox/distribution/policies.json to CONFIG_PROTECT? Thank you!
