Formatting a skiplist rule for Firefox

I would like to get some input on how to format a skiplist rule for Firefox. Here is the specific action that is being blocked

McAfee Solidifier prevented an attempt to modify file 'C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\3kmkn4e1.default\prefs.js' by process/script C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe 

I'm thinking skiplist -d would work. How do I convert this into a "relative path"? Are asterisks(*) allowed?

  • \Users\Bob\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\3kmkn4e1.default 
  • \Users\*\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*.default

Re: Formatting a skiplist rule for Firefox

Hi Gatorspoli

Thanks for reaching out to community.

This skiplist add -d is for write protection operation. 

Skip path components from write protection to remove write protection applied to all files in that path. Also, write denied event is not observed for such paths.

User mode paths and paths with volume name do not work with this command. Text added with this command is treated as complete component. For example, text can start with a forward slash (/) and end with a backward slash (\), dot (.), or null character.
