I am deploying Firefox ESR with a .msi extension. The more I read it seems I should be doing it different. Is there a guide to set Firefox and deploy/package it using configuration manager. I found different ways to do this on the web. I would like to do it the correct way. The last time I created a install.bat, local-settings.js, mozilla.cfg, and override.ini file to package which did not work. Since I am new to this it would be nice to have some screen shots and clear instructions to follow. I did look at the URL: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig but it gets vague about how to customize the core files. I also went to this URL: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig. Still needs some input. Thanks

I use sync on all computers I use Firefox. For my work PC, I am expecting that Group Policy will change that computer to see the company configured homepage. (my home PC will see the homepage I have configured in my personal settings because it is not part of domain where GPO's exist.) The problem is that the GPO settings are not working. It is showing my personal homepage and the GPO is not taking effect. Any advice as to why the GPO is not working? I am using the recent release that says Group Policy is supported. ADMX files are in place and home page is configured.

Attempting to deploy an extension via GPO and make it so that it cannot be disabled or removed. I cannot seem to find the ID of a certain extension.

Policy = Prevent extensions from being disabled or removed. I enabled the policy and added as many options of the ID as I could find. Not sure the right formatting or address to put. I tried: {93fc56d8-0594-4975-8753-c6d1877053ac} 93fc56d8-0594-4975-8753-c6d1877053ac 93fc56d8-0594-4975-8753-c6d1877053ac@mozilla.org

Nothing worked. Firefox 60 ESR Windows 10 1803

An application requested the latest version of Firefox. I installed it. I found I had two versions of Firefox installed. One was ESR. The latest version of Firefox had bookmarks. The ESR version did not have bookmarks. I checked with IT support and found I needed to uninstalled the latest non-ESR version. Now I have no bookmarks. It doesn't matter how I try and import them, they do not display in the bookmarks library. When I'm on a website that I know is bookmarked, the star turns blue. The bookmarks toolbar has nothing on it. They must be somewhere, but there is a disconnect. Without bookmarks, I cannot continue using Firefox.

In the reader mode, when I click the "Narrate" and play, only first paragraph will be read. The wave icon is moving, a speaker shows on tab, but no more voice came out. It looks like a crash but happens all the time.

Also, I tried chirpy and got same problem. Is there some setting wrong on my browser?

The MacOS version is 10.13.4; Firefox version 52.8.0 (64-bit) on ESR update channel.

I mistakenly posted the same question on the wrong forum before. Here is the link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217053. Hope it helps. Thanks!

So far ESR 60 and the group policy settings are great, but there are no settings for the new tab page. In an educational environment (k-12), many of these Top Sites (Facebook, Reddit, etc) and Recommended by Pocket articles (video game related, etc) are not appropriate.

I know that I can disable the entire New Tab page with a config file (which is how we did it with previous versions), but with the introduction of Group Policies, I'd like to be able to move away from this and handle everything in the GPO.

Hi, I am testing the "adml/admx" file for GPO and I have noticed a problem with the "Firefox Account" when the GPO are enabled. I am on a Windows 7 x64 with Firefox 60.0.1 x64 machine. When GPO are NOT set/active, I have access to all my synchronized logins and passwords from my Firefox Account, but when GPO are applied, I lose all my logins and passwords. Is there a restriction with Firefox synch when GPO are enabled? Is this issue due to the fact that I am using the French version of Firefox on client PC? Thanks a lot. Nicky

I run an enterprise of 24K employees that all have local administrative rights; users have installed firefox over the years into multiple different locations, and all users have computers with multiple disks/volumes, so knowing up-front where to put a configuration file to customize Firefox has always been a challenge/impossibility.

The GPO additions in Firefox 60 allow me to configure 99% of what I need to, however there are certain other settings that are needed (one example is general.useragent.override.<domain> which is necessary to tell our SSO system which IWA system in the corporate forest to bounce the user to for IWA to work properly). I can get things working perfectly if I confgure the settings manually in about:config, but how can I either 1) define the settings in a GPO item or 2) define the URL of a json/js file that contains the settings via GPO.

As stated, I know I can use a local file to set this up, but the whole point of GPO is to configure software centrally without regard to where in the system a user may have installed it.

I've applied the admx templates to the Sysvol on our Win Server 2012r2 environment & I've created a GPO to allow NTLM authentication to our intranet sites. However when I deploy the GPO I do not see the site in about:config network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris

using gpresult /r I can see that the GPO is getting applied on our test machine.

attached is an image (first image) of the Firefox templates when added to the domain controller (Win 2012r2) -

I tried on another test Domain controller (this time Win 2016) and noticed that the templates look different. When applied to the Win2012r2 DC they seem to have been placed under 'Extra Registry Settings' (see first image) however when I placed them on my 2016 box, they were assigned to a different category (see second image).

We are trying to set up a central autoconfig.js file on a server by Firefox doesn't seem to load the file.

I've read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-autoconfig and I think I followed the instructions but when trying to add a new site to network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris it doesn't get added.

I changed the autoconfig.js file in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref" and included the two following lines

pref("autoadmin.global_config_url","http://nritcssqlp02/Reports/browse/Custom/mozilla.cfg"); pref("autoadmin.global_config_url.obscure_value", 0);

I also tried making mozilla.cfg --> mozilla.js to see if that would work, but it did not.

I added NSPR_LOG_FILE and NSPR_LOG_MODULES=MCD:5 as environment variables to try and get some logging to see what was going on.

When I open my log file the last line I see is [Main Thread]: D/MCD mcd http request failed with status 191


I tried changing the file from a URL to a location on our file sever and I don't get an error, instead I just get [Main Thread]: D/MCD running MCD url file://nrfsapp/region/donnellyr/FirefoxESR/mozilla.cfg

Nothing after that.

If I'm reading the documentation correctly, I'm supposed to use the autoconfig.js file on the PC to load the local .cfg file as well as point to where my central file is located. If the central file is different it should over-write the local .cfg file.

Is there anything else I can do for testing purposes? Is there something I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm trying to customize Mozilla ESR Firefox configuration for silent deployment. I need include some language packs and implement automatically changing UI language depending on OS language.

I have copied needful .xpi languages packs to unziped_installer\core\browser\extensions\. It installs with Firefox and visible on tab "Languages" in "about:addons".

Also, I have found parameter, which can change UI language - "intl.locale.requested". Everything works fine, but I have one problem: Installed extensions is disabled after installation.

Also, environment can exist Mozilla Firefox profiles in appdata, which I should not remove.

Could you please advise me how I can enable these extensions after installation or first user runing with help config/preferences or maybe there is some other solution?

Thanks in advance.
