Setting a universal firefox profile

This is likely going to be a very stupid question.  But here goes.

I have 25 PC's in my training room that I installed firefox on for an application that we are testing.  Every user doing the testing will be logging in under their own username.  

What I want to do is install Firefox with my local administrator account.  Then to support the application I have to configure Firefox to not block pop-ups, do not do automatic updates and prompt for download location.

Here is my question:

I do NOT want the users having to set those settings when they first log in, I want those to be "inherited" from the Administrator Firefox profile.  Is there a way to do this, and how do I do it?

I just want them to log in, click on firefox and have it fully function WITHOUT having to answer any questions.  And have firefox install the new user profile from the administrator profile.

Thank you,
Jeff.

We don't have a need for this, but it is my understanding that you have a lot of options when installing Firefox in an enterprise environment.

Firefox can be configured with defaults for any new profile and locked down so that it will contain your required configuration options. Mozilla has made it easy to deploy custom default settings and preferences – by adding some specific files at install time

Bob,
Unfortunately, I do not see any of those configuration files with my version of Firefox we are using.  We are using Firefox 31.2.esr

In fact other than the folder of \Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser, I do not even have a preferences or profile sub-subfolder.  Am I supposed to create those?

thank you,
Jeff

That is a great question.  Have you tried asking on the Enterprise Working Group (EWG) mailing list?

Yes, it would be great to find an answer.  Unfortunately, I didn't have one, so I was hoping that you could use a different resource that is specific to your problem.  If you find a solution, you should post it here for the Knowledge Base.
