Firefox reports updates are locked by admin, I tried enabling updates in about:config, the option says locked and cannot toggle it. I would like firefox-bin to update from mozillas servers rather than portage since its more frequent.

With firefox from portage you cannot update from mozilla directly.
One (bad) solution is download firefox from site and put it on /opt changing permission to firefox dirctory.
