I do not have an organiization why am I getting this message
Your browser is being managed by your organization. I am the only one who has access so who else has access to my account or who else is managing the account?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:69.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/69.0
Did you click this link?
Probably it's forced by your AV software. Open regedit.exe and check if the following registry keys exist:
I don't see it there.
Go to your installation folder (where firefox.exe is located) and check, if you have there distribution folder.
PS. You still didn't click the link.
is there a solution to this? I am also getting the same message "Your browser is being managed by your organization". I don't have he above registry entries or a distribution folder.
I have found the answer. removed registry entry placed by AVG antivirus using below method:
1. Open the registry editor
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies
3. Select and delete “Mozilla” parent key present below Microsoft on the left side 3. Restart Firefox browser and visit Settings, you’ll no longer see the message.
I understand that it is Avast/AVG causing this problem. I have Avast free on my laptop. If I remove it, will Windows Defender be sufficient to protect my browser? I also scan with Spybot once a week.
