[Bug 221265] Re: Can't lock preferences in Firefox 3.0 Beta 5

I need to use Hardy for at least 2 more years.

Just want to say that  I am still unable to lock down certain
preferences in Ubuntu hardy in an way that will not be overwritten by a
package upgrade.

I added the following line to /etc/firefox-3.0/pref/firefox.js

pref("general.config.filename", "local.cfg");

The file "local.cfg" is then loaded from /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.5/ ... which is of course lost when the package gets upgraded.

Is there a way in ubuntu to provide a local configfile to force
preferences without it being overwritten by package upgrades?
