How to limit Firefox extensions to certain containers?

Posted

Our company has strict policies on the browser extensions that can be active when accessing company websites. We have a small whitelisted set of extensions that are allowed.

I am using work/personal profiles in Google Chrome and Brave to have a different set of extensions when working. I wonder if something like this could be possible with Firefox containers? It would be so much more convenient compared to separate profiles -- Firefox already allows me to open the company pages in "Work" containers.

Here at my work place Windows 10 doesn't give the employees control to install addons or Extension. That is done throught IT. I think your IT needs to change the setup. If they have the setup where each user is Admin then your going to have to ongoing problem and only til they are only give Limited Access will that issue stop.
