**Affected versions**
* Firefox 75.0a1 (BuildId:20200216210001)
* Firefox 74.0b1 (BuildId:20200210140608)

**Unaffected versions**
* Firefox 73.0 (BuildId:20200207195153) 

**Affected platforms**
* Windows 10 64bit.

**Preconditions**
Enable several policies via GPO (ex: Disable Private Browsing and Disable Firefox Screenshots)

**Steps to reproduce**
1. Create a distribution folder inside your Firefox path. 
2. Add a policies.json file which contains invalid entries. 
3.  Launch Firefox.
4. Access the about:policies page.


**Expected result**
* Policies that were previously set via GPO are being successfully displayed inside the about:policies page and they are successfully applied. (In this case Private Browsing and Firefox Screenshots are disabled).

**Actual result**
*  Policies that were previously set via GPO are not applied ( In this case Private Browsing and Firefox Screenshots are enabled)

**Regression Range**
* I think that this may have came with the changes performed in Bug 1552600 (Will get back with a clear regression in a bit).

**Note**
Example of invalid policies.json file content:
{
  "policies": {
    "DisableTelemetry": true,
     "DisableMasterPasswordCreation": true,
        "Locke
  }
}
