patch

Start pinging AUS5 for system add-on updates. This generates URLs like:

https://aus5.mozilla.org/update/3/SystemAddons/44.0a1/20151009030230/Darwin_x86_64-gcc3-u-i386-x86_64/en-US/nightly/Darwin%2015.0.0/default/default/update.xml

Which returns an empty updates XML until we set up any rules which is what we want, it means Firefox will just retain whatever system add-ons shipped with the binary.

r+, although not a peer for Firefox. Third-party folks should disable app update to avoid system addon updates completely, or modify this pref in their builds ?

Yes, clearing this pref or turning off app updates will turn it off.
