After upgrade to Firefox 71 some of the setting for Firefox do not remain the same


The settings like



should be false but they can get changed to true when we upgrade from firefox 70 to firefox 71.

Is it a known issue ?

Are you sure that these settings were not set by Firefox itself?

(Personally I would not be wondered with Mozilla's assumption that they know better;) what you need and thus unconditionally enable auto updating during upgrade process.)

No . We have to do it manually.

Hi @nisgupta,


I believe that this issue is related to Firefox. Perhaps, when updating there is an option to restore browser configurations to default or use the existing ones. Perhaps, there is a way to export the current Firefox settings to use it in another browser version.
