Hello All, I'm trying to block all Mozilla extensions and allow only a few that's approved by IT. Our environment is pretty big over 2k devices and we are using well organized AD structure by departments and did similar project with Chrome with no issues. But Mozilla template doesn't have same options as Chrome. Any idea how I can accomplish this ? Thank you.

Hello, I figured out myself. I was able to accomplish this via GPO JSON configs. I enabled option Extension Management(from the template), and added JSON configs { "*": { "blocked_install_message": "Your Company Blocked Message", "installation_mode": "blocked" }, "plugin@okta.com": { "installation_mode": "allowed" } }

There are only 5 parameters are on the template under Extensions: Extension Management Extension Update Extension to Install Prevent extension from being disabled or removed Extensions to Uninstall How can I specify to block all extensions and allow only one https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/okta-browser-plugin/

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. We do have the same policy as Chrome (ExtensionSettings). It's under Extension Management (which is the term chrome uses).
