Background

While Firefox’s extension system is arguably the browser’s most powerful feature, it can also be a vector for malware. With Firefox 2.0, specific extensions can be blacklisted from a central server (by default, addons.mozilla.org). This preference specifies the URL from which the blocklist is retrieved.

Possible values and their effects

A valid URL pointing to a properly-formatted blocklist. (Default value varies depending on application ID and version number.)
