I'm working on building a deployment for Firefox 78.1.0 ESR in a mixed Windows/macOS environment. I've got a policies.json file that works, and was able to install it on Windows via a batch script that runs the installer MSI, creates the distribution directory, and copies the policies.json to that location.

Where I'm struggling is getting this deployed on the Mac side of things. I've followed the directions to apply policy and remove the quarantine here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/deploying-firefox-customizations-macos While this works on my Mac, when I deploy it to my test collection (via AirDrop, Self-Service, or by running the PKG file made by JAMF Composer), macOS says the app is damaged and should be deleted.

Does anyone know a way around that?

Hi!

I use policy for customization Firefox 78.1.0esr. It is wonderful! Thank you for these possibilities.

Something wrong with Homepage URL. Set URL (internal network) for Homepage, run Firefox and looking different address. Add this URL to Additional section and URL stay not edited. ``` <key>Homepage</key> <dict> <key>URL</key> <string>https://appl-test.oebs.yandex.net:8010</string> <key>Locked</key> <true/> <key>Additional</key> <array> <string>https://appl-test.oebs.yandex.net:8010</string> </array> <key>StartPage</key> <string>homepage</string> </dict> ``` URL changing to "https://yandex.com/" Why? Maybe firefox check URL and redirect?
