The same configuration applied on Thunderbird 2.0 Pre doesn't do nothing. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.configure autoconfig in all.js file pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // for MCD .cfg files pref(general.config.filename", "thunderbird.cfg"); // for MCD .cfg files 2.configure log environment variables NSPR_LOG_FILE=C:\TB_LOG.TXT NSPR_LOG_MODULE=MCD:5 3.make a thunderbird.cfg in the application directory //BEGIN CE Prefs lockPref("general.config.vendor","thunderbird"); lockPref("autoadmin.global_config_url","http://127.0.0.1/thunderbird.jsc"); 4.put a thunderbird.jsc file on the web server 5. run thunderbird 6. close thunderbird 7. delete the thunderbird.cfg file 8. run thunderbird again Actual Results: * web server and thunderbird's log files are empty. * nothing appends * without thunderbird.cfg file, thunderbird starts normally ! --> autoconfig doesn't work Expected Results: * log files show thunderbird.jsc download * configuration keys in the thunderbird.jsc must be included in the prefs.js file * in case of "thunderbird.cfg" file doesn't exist, thunderbird must stop start process and display an error dialog box, and then it closes itself.
Just in case, are you sure it's not due to a typo ?. i.e. quote missing in pref(general.config.filename", "thunderbird.cfg"); ^ or missing plural in NSPR_LOG_MODULE=MCD:5 ^ As TB 2 autoconfig works in my setup -- had an "thunderbird.cfg" data encoding issue on Windows but NSPR log mentionned it.
I know it's working for one large site we're deployed at...I'm not sure what's going on at your site.

It works much better with this quote. Logs are OK, thunderbird.cfg is read and thunderbird.jsc is downloaded. all is fine. Thanks.

Maybe we could learn from your problem and have a better "error handling system" in MCD. I find it quite difficult to debug, as errors and warnings are often simply "muted".
