Can I control normal Firefox application using the Firefox Group Policy Object? Or must I use Firefox Enterprise?

I was under the impression that I would need to install Firefox enterprise edition in order to work with the Firefox Group Policy admx files, however I noticed that when I set the policy to disable to password prompt in the GPO, it worked just fine with a normal Firefox install (not enterprise).

Can someone confirm if there are certain policies that require the enterprise version of Firefox to be installed?

hello, https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates lists all policies, the vast majority of them will apply for regular firefox releases as well as esr. there are a few exceptions - changing the default search engine is one of them which will only work on firefox esr, but those will be noted in the github readme above.
