Bypassing Firefox update prompt for Classroom computers w non admin accounts

New Contributor

Good morning!

I had a question pertaining to the following scenerio:

We have a large number of machines that are using a local non admin account most of the time in classrooms. Firefox as many of you know likes to update as often as any app I have ever seen. Because we are in this scenario the prompt can become an annoyance as the only way to update it (as far as I know) is with admin creds that our students don't have. thus they just cancel the update and use the application. 

Does anyone have any good strategies for keeping applications like this up to date or bypassing the admin requirements for these small annoying updates?

Since users do not have admin rights, you can use Jamf Patch management to update Firefox.
