How to disable access to proxy settings

Posted

I need to enable the proxy on my network and disable users from changing the settings, is there any way to do this in Mozilla?

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

Please see this.

The settings you may want to lock are network.proxy.http and network.proxy.http_port or network.proxy.autoconfig_url

Use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify default values.

Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift

See:

You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:

defaultPref();  // set new default value
pref();         // set pref, but allow changes in current session
lockPref();     // lock pref, disallow changes
