Hello, Cap.
Brief question, brief answer: no bundled Firefox extensions provided by the Linux Mint software repositories.

Okay. However I see that the Linux Mint package ubuntu-system-adjustments has code to change Firefox settings,

Code: Select all

// Don't disable our bundled extensions in the application directory
pref("extensions.autoDisableScopes", 0);
pref("extensions.shownSelectionUI", true);
If there are no bundled extensions may they remove this code?

that's not a Linux Mint package, it's an Ubuntu one from the upstream repository Mint gets Firefox from.

ubuntu-system-adjustments is a mint package (debian-system-adjustments the equivalent on LMDE)

Code: Select all

steve@steve-Inspiron-5580:~$ apt policy ubuntu-system-adjustments
ubuntu-system-adjustments:
  Installed: 2020.07.29
  Candidate: 2020.07.29
  Version table:
 *** 2020.07.29 500
        500 http://packages.linuxmint.com ulyana/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://packages.linuxmint.com ulyana/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
Not sure if Mint used to bundle extensions or not but there are nothing other than the preinstalled language packs in /usr/lib/firefox-addons these days.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

Hi, Cap.

Nor can I. - Therefore you might raise a new "Issue" in the general "Linux Mint" section here: https://github.com/linuxmint/linuxmint, and explain your concerns about the 2 mentioned Firefox settings, which ubuntu-system-adjustments creates.

Best regards,
Karl
