We currently use roaming profiles at our site on our Windows 10 computers. Firefox profile data is created in %appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox for our users (which falls in our redirected AppData location and therefore is written to our fileserver).

I am looking at implementing some Firefox settings in Group Policy to control certain settings for our users, but I find when I make settings there, profile data lands in %localappdata%\Mozilla\Firefox instead, and this data is *NOT* saved to the fileserver.

Is there a setting in the Firefox ADMX package that allows one to redefine where the Firefox profile data is created? I've looked through the settings in version 2.3 of the Firefox ADMX package, and I'm not finding it.

Hello,

I've seen this thread to customize some settings in Firefox but I don't think I've found what I need. So here's my issue : Some people in my company use a software which download JNLP file. I've found this support topic which solve my problem (I've tested with one user). But now, I'd like to spread the workaround via a GPO. I've downloaded the policy template v2.1 ('cause Firefox 79 is installed) but I can't figure out how I force the value to "True" for the browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable preference in the about:config panel. Is it supported or not yet ? Could anyone lend a hand please ? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

The company I work for has a very large Flex system making it impossible to migrate to another technology until 2020.

My suggestion is to keep the current version of mozilla as it is running the flash player, I would disable automatic updates and freeze the browser in the current version.

My question is: whether this work after 2020?

I am a manager of a company, and I need to let some of our employees access to our online accounts. However, they can see our username/passwords when they simply look at firefox settings. Master password is obviously not useful. I want to basically disable "show password" tab.

I looked up online all day, including other web browsers, and firefox extensions. I can't seem to find it out.

Can anyone help me with this?

Hello Everyone,

Im implementing DOD compliant settings to Mozilla for our enviroment. I am currently in the testing phase - making sure its all set before deployment, Heres where the fun begins.

Ive done the usual - Place the mozilla.cfg in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox Place the autoconfig.js in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref

and have set the lockPref accordingly for each finding. The issue is that some are being set correctly while others arent being changed at all and most changes arent locked. I have edited the config file to not include the comments (except the top one of course) and changed the \n\r and \r\n to be only \n for the entire file so formatting should not be the issue. I have also changed all commas to match the ones settings that work (no luck) - “” rather than ""

These are working - but doesnt have the lock image

lockPref(“security.default_personal_cert”, “Ask Every Time”; lockPref(“signon.rememberSignons”, false); lockPref(“toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled”, false); lockPref(“browser.search.update”, false); lockPref(“browser.contentblocking.category”, strict); lockPref(“privacy.trackingprotection.cryptomining.enabled”, true); lockPref(“security.tls.version.max”, 4); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_flip”, true); lockPref(“network.protocol-handler.external.shell”, false);


These have Lock image and cannot be changed -working as it should

lockPref(“toolkit.telemetry.enabled”, false);



These are not working:

lockPref(“extensions.update.enabled”, false); lockPref(“dom.event.contextmenu.enabled”, false); lockPref(“extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled”, false); lockPref(“datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled”, false); lockPref(“security.ssl3.rsa_des_ede3_sha”, false); lockPref(“security.enterprise_roots.enabled”, true); lockPref(“security.tls.version.min”, 2); lockPref(“browser.formfill.enable”, false) lockPref(“signon.autofillForms”, false); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_move_resize”, true); lockPref(“devtools.policy.disabled”, true);

These dont even show up in firefox:

lockPref(“xpinstall.enabled”, false); lockPref(“plugin.disable_full_page_plugin_for_types”, PDF, FDF, XFDF, LSL, LSO, LSS, IQY, RQY, XLK, XLS, XLT, POT, PPS, PPT, DOS, DOT, WKS, BAT, PS, EPS, WCH, WCM, WB1, WB3, RTF, DOC, MDB, MDE, WBK, WB1, WCH, WCM, AD, ADP); lockPref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.status”, true); lockPref(“browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.enabled”, false)

We currently have a setup where we're installing Firefox ESR 68.10.0 using a .CFG and .JS file for custom configurations. Everything has been working great, but now we have a need to update to the latest version of Firefox ESR due to recently-announced security vulnerabilities. I am testing the upgrade to 78.7.0 using the same .CFG and .JS files, and I get the error "Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator." at startup. I tried doing a complete uninstall of the old version and install of the new one, keeping the same config files, but the same error comes up. The support documentation for ESR 78.7.0 makes no indication that these configuration files are to be used, instead mentioning that Group Policies should be used for configuration in a Windows environment. But we have various user groups that require specialized configurations, and using the configuration files has worked best for us. Is there any way to keep using the configuration files? If so, what changes would I need to make to the formatting of the files to get them working? Any help is greatly appreciated!

We have Firefox ESR deployed in our Enterprise. Our core financial banking system runs on Firefox. Our Intranet page has special javascript code to take advantage of IE's ActiveX so if one were to launch IE, the default page (our intranet) has an icon to our core banking system and if clicked the script uses ActiveX and runs this code: ar oShell = new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application"); var commandtoRun = "C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe" ; oShell.ShellExecute(commandtoRun,"https:/path-to-core-system-web-ui","","open","1"); }

So when they click on the icon which is basically an img with the style of cursor: pointer; it does an onclick launch to that code which launches firefox to the web command. If you open our Intranet page in Firefox or Chrome then ActiveX does not run so it just launches in a new tab the link to our core system.

This week (1/19) we are going live with a new loan origination system. The LoS system vendor claims they want us to use Chrome for their system. Well a few months ago we changed the default browser to Firefox with GPO's and now the issue is our Intranet page opens in Firefox (which works great) as any other, but how can we craft our link to open the Loan Origination System in Chrome? I call B.S. that is only works in Chrome. It seems to work in Firefox to me, but that's all they want to support so if we need help they won't help us unless we are using it in Chrome. I know I'm not happy about it either. I'm just happy to be rid of IE finally. I like Firefox (and Chrome) but if I can do any tricks to craft a link, maybe a javascript function to launch something like commandtoRun = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Google\\Chrome\\Application\\chrome.exe", along with the argument with the LoS web URL, that would be great.

Thanks!

Unable to make Firefox the default browser via GPO on Windows 10

I'm using these instructions for making the FireFox browser the default browser via GPO: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-enterprise-default-browser#fire… (read more)

I'm using these instructions for making the FireFox browser the default browser via GPO: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-enterprise-default-browser#firefox-enterprise:win10: and I'm unable to do so successfully.

When I perform the steps what happens is that no browser becomes the default. Trying to open an html document causes Windows 10 to ask the user to pick which browser they would like to be the default web browser. I can choose Firefox at that point but if I reboot or do a gpupdate /force, the default app for browser goes back to not having one selected.

I can use the same steps to a file at the same network location to make Google Chrome the default browser without issue, but when I switch back to trying to make Firefox the default the same problem returns. I've tried the rapid release version and the ESR version. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

I feel like the issue is related to the default associations xml file from the instructions which states ProgId="FirefoxHTML . If you look in the windows registry, "FirefoxHTML" is not listed as an option for either of these keys: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.html\OpenWithProgIds Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.htm\OpenWithProgIds

If you go here: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Firefox-308046B0AF4A39CB\Capabilities\URLAssociations

Instead of "FirefoxHTML" it lists "FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB" for the http and https url associations.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem or another way to make Firefox the default browser for multiple machines remotely?

hey all,

I get the following error ONLY for internal websites (we have our own Windows CA): SEC_ERROR_CERT_SIGNATURE_ALGORITHM_DISABLED Yes, I could "ignore" the error, however this is not desired. I compared already the algorithm with some external certs (like Let's Encrypt). Same algorithm, no error....

Have already tried with several internal websites, but without success. Some information about the certificate: Algorithm: RSA 2048 key length Sign. Algorithm: SHA-256 with RSA Encryption V3

What is wrong? I have already tried a lot of things without success. Unfortunately, I no longer know what to do.We deploy the certificates (root+intermediate) via GPO (this works so far). We have the above mentioned problems only after switching from 68ESR to 78ESR.

Thanks in advance.

We have around 1000 Firefox installations on our government organization, all installed via the Firefox MSI installer. Unfortunately, we came late to realize that the Firefox ESR would be a much more suitable product, compared to the normal Firefox branch.

Now, some years ago we would simply mass uninstall the normal Firefox and mass install the (latest) ESR version and all would be well. Problem is that we have to keep existing profiles (including passwords/bookmarks etc), something that is not supported in the latest Firefox builds.

Can anyone offer some advice/"hacks" to accomplish this? Note that whatever we'll do, we'll have to do it automatically, we lack the man-power to do this manually on a system by system basis...

Thanks in advance for any information provided.

Our company is using Firefox. We recently have found that you can launch Command Prompt or PowerShell by typing "cmd" or "powershell" into address bar of "Open File" or "Save Page As" menu.

Since we can not accept this behavior for security reasons, we are considering disabling "Open File" and "Save Page As" feature themselves. Is there a way to realize this?

We sought options to disable these features, but could not find any so far. Or If there is alternative solution for this, that would be highly appreciated if you share your knowledge.
