Load distribution preferences earlier than the addon manager so that relevant prefs impact distribution extensions


(Firefox :: Distributions, enhancement)





(Reporter: nalexander, Unassigned)



Right now, prefs from distribution.ini are loaded on final-ui-startup here, which is after distribution extensions are loaded (in response to addons-startup here).

This means that prefs like and xpinstall.signatures.required set in distribution.ini are not respected by the very first startup with a distribution with custom extensions.

This ticket tracks loading some parts of the distribution -- potentially only the preferences -- early enough to impact the addons manager.

We've had problems in the past with conflicts between distribution prefs, autoconfig prefs, and global prefs so this is a very fragile situation.


Need to make sure those scenarios are tested.
