Firefox preference is a way to set the details of a firefox profile. You can set different conditions for the profile like, you can say that browser should not
auto update itself when launced by
.setPreference(“”, false);

Similarly you can set that extensions should not update them selves automatically by using this statement
profile.setPreference(“extensions.update.enabled”, false);

You can get a list of complete preferences by typing  about:config in the address bar of FF browser and you will get a list of all the available options
