الحل المُختار

Seeing the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" notification at the top of the Settings page is in most cases caused by security software that uses GPO policy rules (ImportEnterpriseRoots) to inject their root certificate in Firefox to be able to intercept and scan your internet traffic.

You can click the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" notification or open the about:policies page to see if policies are active and if errors are reported.

If you are seeing the message "Your browser is being managed by your organization" in your browser settings and you don't have an organization managing it, there are a few potential reasons for this and some steps you can take to resolve the issue:

Check browser extensions: Certain browser extensions, particularly those related to security or management, can trigger the "managed by your organization" message. Review your installed extensions and disable any that might be causing the issue. You can access your extensions through the browser's settings or options menu.

Check for malware or unwanted software: Malware or potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) can modify browser settings and cause the "managed by your organization" message to appear. Run a comprehensive scan on your computer using reputable antivirus or anti-malware software to detect and remove any malicious or unwanted programs.

Reset browser settings: Resetting your browser settings can help eliminate any unwanted modifications that might have triggered the message. Keep in mind that resetting your browser will remove your custom settings and restore it to its default state. Look for the "Settings" or "Options" menu in your browser, find the "Reset" or "Restore settings" option, and follow the prompts to reset your browser.

Review Group Policy settings (Windows): If you are using a Windows computer, it's possible that the "managed by your organization" message is a result of Group Policy settings. You can check and modify Group Policy settings by following these steps:

Press Win + R to open the Run dialog box. Type "gpedit.msc" and press Enter to open the Local Group Policy Editor. Navigate to "Administrative Templates" > "Windows Components" > "Internet Explorer" (or the browser you are using). Look for any policies related to browser management and ensure they are set to "Not Configured" or "Disabled." Remove browser policies (Chrome): If you are using Google Chrome, it's possible that there are policy settings applied to your browser. You can remove these policies by following these steps:

Open a new tab in Chrome and enter "chrome://policy" in the address bar. Review the policies listed and identify any that might be causing the issue. Open a new tab and enter "chrome://extensions" in the address bar. Disable or remove any extensions related to policy management or that you suspect might be causing the issue. Reinstall the browser: If all else fails, uninstalling and reinstalling the browser can help eliminate any persistent issues related to settings or policies. Remove the browser from your computer, download the latest version from the official website, and install it again.

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve the issue and remove the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" message if you don't have an actual organization managing your browser settings.

The message means that a policy has been filed on your system, possibly by security software. Enter about:policies in the address bar and post the contents here. You can delete the policy but the software will probably file it again.

This is not a bug, this merely means that you have/had software on your computer that wants to inject policy rules in Firefox.

What policies are reported if you click the "Your browser is being managed by your organization" notification or open the about:policies page ?

ImportEnterpriseRoots is on under Mozilla Firefox. Regedit can remove it but it is put back on after a reboot. I am using AVG Internet Security. This is the only policy that shows up. I can't believe how long this has been going on without any relief.

Security software uses ImportEnterpriseRoots to inject its root certificate to be able to monitor your internet traffic and prevent SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors. You can consider to disable this in your security software.
