Still trying to stop the "Extensions" add-on window from popping up

I've done some research on this forum and the web and still cannot stop the "Extensions" window from popping-up every time I use Portable Firefox on a different PC.

This seemed to be the same issue here: https://portableapps.com/node/23263

But no luck with any of those suggestions.

I think this is related to the .NET Framework Assistant and I'm wondering if I could preload some GUIDs (or something) into some js, ini, or rdf file (somewhere) in advance so PF would think it's already been installed, since some PCs I work on have it and some don't.

TIA

John

Plugins

It has to do with plugins and the way Firefox handles them. If it sees them on a local PC, it will use them. There is no way for us to alter that. Please report it as a bug or feature request to the Firefox team.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Hack workaround?

Thanks for the response, John, that answered that question.

I researched Bugzilla and see there are a number of existing related bugs with the aim of providing more user control to the update checks (initial and ongoing). I'll keep an eye on those.

For a hack workaround, any thoughts to a lightweight about how I might insert some text(js, ini, rdf?) into my own portable package that might make the new computer think I've already got .NET installed?
