Using firefox in more than one location with roaming profile data

We are currently trialling Firefox in our business, we need to redirect the users profile to have users bookmarks move with them when they enter meeting rooms. Currently we are using Folder Redirection with offline file syncing enabled to accomplish this. This is causing users to receive the error telling them to close Firefox as it is already running when they open Firefox on a second PC at the same time. I understand why this is happening with the lock file being created in the users roaming profile data, I am looking to find a solution that will allow users to have their data roam with them and be able to open multiple sessions on different PCs simultaneously.

What methods are you using to provide this level of functionality to users in your business?

Hi,

We need a solution on how to define where bookmarks are saved on our computers either to the users homedrive (mapped network drive) or their OneDrive folder.

I have looked through the list of policies available but can't seem to find any policies that lets us define the default bookmarks location. Am I missing something or this is not an option at all? If not an option I have to ask why? We can't expect every user in our organization to create a firefox account to have their bookmarks available when they sign in to a meeting room computer, classroom computer or their personal computer is replaced.

Any help is highly appreciated

I am trying push Firefox out via Microsoft Intune. I am able to push it out but Intune's always say waiting on install status. I have tried the msi and the exe installers and have the same issue. I am trying to validate the installation like I do other msi installation by looking at the GUID but the issue is none of the Firefox installers install a GUID in the registry.

I am trying to figure out how to add my own GUID via the installation. Any ideas?

In chrome and or maybe even earlier versions of firefox, we were allowed to type in a url as an exception to run flash.

Now, we have to type the website into the browser, go there, and then add the flash exception from the top left "info" icon.

I am unable to find a way to silently uninstall multiple different versions of firefox in an enterprise environment. We currently have 14 different versions spread out across multiple systems and windows OS's and need a command line that will remove them from workstations.

The <Firefox Full Installer.exe> /S option doesn't work very well, as it only uninstalls the .exe's version, and if that version isn't found, installs it instead!

Any help would be appreciated. I'm following this doc and its not helping at all: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Installer:Command_Line_Arguments
