Saving all profiles in a network share

Posted

Hello!

I am now struggling to configure Firefox in a VDI environment and we want the Firefox profiles to be stored on a network share in order to take them out from the user folder.

Guess there should be a line in the mozilla.cfg file to change the path, but I'm not able to find it.

Anyone has faced the same situation? Is it possible to specify a path where all the profiles will be stored?

Thanks!!

Beyond the scope of this Firefox support forum which is geared to end users, and not to IT personnel doing network installations.

FrontMotion has been doing Firefox MSI's for almost as long as Firefox has been around, You could try their support forum for help with the VDI environment. http://forums.frontmotion.com/ then look in the Firefox MSI's forum.

Beyond that I can't help any further, other than to recommend that you look into the Firefox Community Edition: http://www.frontmotion.com/fmfirefoxce/

Or look into the free MSI for Firefox: http://www.frontmotion.com/firefox/

No idea other than that. I gather no one else since 8:30 am either.

Thanks for the prompt reply but it doesn't really work for me.

With that instructions it's possible to change the profile path for the current user but when you start Windows with another one, the profile will be stored in his %AppData% folder.

I guess there should be done on a file which is not in the %AppData% folder of the current user to apply to everyone.
