Access to about:debugging while blocking all extensions via GPO

more options

Hello,

As the title mentions, applying a block to all extensions via "*" by utilizing Extension Management GPO will block about:debugging.

Is there a way to simultaneously have all extensions blocked and about:debugging available?

Here's the JSON - { "*": { "installation_mode": "blocked" } }


Appreciate your time and help, - Dom

The reason we block about:debugging is because a user can explicitly load an addon on the about:debugging.

You're right, though, that this is probably a little heavy handed. Maybe I should just disable the "load temporary addon" button.
