Why do SanitizeOnShutdown and Preferences look different from other policies on the Enterprise Policies page?

Are these supposed to look different, or am I just doing something wrong? In the image I included here, SanitizeOnShutdown and Preferences look different from FirefoxHome and look incorrect. I removed other policies to make this simpler, but all of the other policies with multiple policy values look just like FirefoxHome. It appears that SanitizeOnShutdown is at least working since my history is indeed getting cleared on shutdown, but I'm unsure whether this actually works when I set these to the settings they should be since they should all be false other than Locked. Am I doing something wrong here or are these two policies supposed to look like that for some reason? Thank you in advance for the help!

``` {

   "policies": {

"DisablePrivateBrowsing": true,

           "Cache": false,

I am trying trying to install the keeper extension via intune but am having trouble with the oma-uri. It looks right to me but I might be missing something. Prior to running this I followed https://mzl.la/3vYAIYT and added the Firefox ADMX. Both run successfully but it does not add the extension. Firefox version 116.0.3

OMA-URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Firefox~Policy~firefox~Extensions/ExtensionSettings

String: <enabled/> <data id="ExtensionSettings" value=' {

 "*": {
   "blocked_install_message": Opps, this may have been a mistake reach out to IT.",
   "install_sources":["about:addons","https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
   "installation_mode": "allowed",
   "allowed_types": ["extension" ,"theme"]
 },
 "KeeperFFStoreExtension@KeeperSecurityInc": {
   "installation_mode": "normal_installed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/keeper-password-manager/latest.xpi",

"default_area": "navbar"

 },

}'/>

Unable to set multiple ExtensionSettings through imported admx

I am using the intune preview feature which allows you to import admx/adml instead of using the custom injection method. Everything works far better then with the injection method, except for one settings:

ExtensionSettings this setting is working when I have only one setting set (ex):

{"someplugin@test.com": { "installation_mode" : "allowed" }}

If I add a second line to the entry:

{"someotherplugin@test.com":{ "installation_mode" : "allowed"}}

I understand this is a new feature, but if I had the correct format that would work for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\ExtensionSettings to allow two plugins to work I belive I shouldn't have any issue getting the admx feature to do this, I even tried manually editing the registry setting and it breaks whenever I add the second line to it.

Firefox GPO: Add Custom Search Engine

We would like to install a custom search engine using Firefox policies. We have the latest version of Firefox installed. We have the latest admx files installed on our Domain Controllers. In the Policy, I go into the User -> Administrative Templates -> Mozilla -> Search and setup a search engine using Search Engine One. I then go into Default Search Engine and configure our custom search to be default. What we find is that the custom search engine never installs, so the custom search engine is not set at the default. If I manually add the custom search engine using the Search Engine Helper Add-on, I can verify that the custom search settings do indeed work. With that said, does anyone have thoughts on how to troubleshoot this issue? First, need to figure out why the custom engine isn't installing at all. Thanks.

A few questions re: policies.json

Hi there,

I'm playing with policies.json on Linux/Ubuntu now, trying to improve my knowledge of Firefox customization through different policies and user interaction after the Firefox deployment. I added a custom bookmark and extension, which show and install okay when I restart the browser. But when I delete them from within the browser and restart Firefox, they show up again. To avoid this, I can delete /etc/firefox/policies/policies.json after the Firefox deployment. Hence my questions:

  • Is the deletion of the JSON file after the Firefox deployment a reasonable option at all?
  • If yes, how can I automate the process silently, without user interaction?
  • If no, what would be your advice to let users modify the browser settings like removing extension(s) or bookmark(s) set in policies.json so that they do not reappear after the browser restart?

Thank you! Rustam
