If I am vocal and have a mature fire starter, do I still need to meet precondition disks when promoting elders?

I dont have the rules with me now.
The mature firestarter allow you to promote elders directly to a mature status. So yes, you dont have to put the disk below the elder cube.
Do not confuse with "precondition" tools, that are the disks you need to have in order to hunt biomes. Here, firestarters have no effect. There is a daughter, however, that lets you ignore these precondition tools.

Yes, but you don't need to mature them as the start as mature.

I'm talking about portal disk precondition.
Quote:
Precondition Disks. If Vocal, you may not promote an elder of ranks 3, 4, or 5 unless you have a portal (I1) of each of the 3 colors in the specified domain. This is similar to Precondition Tools (E1), except the required disks are portals instead of vocabulary.

Yes you need those. The firestarter just gives you the "promotion" for free, it does not satisfy the "precondition".

If I have an immature elder, then my fire starter becomes mature, do my other immature elders become mature too? Or does the fire-starter ability only work when making new elders?

It only works when making new elders. That is sometimes an interesting decision, whether to wait with making elders.
