I created a file Mozilla Firefox\Defaults\Pref\autoconfig.js file which calls the file Mozilla.cfg. The Mozilla.cfg resides in the Mozilla Firefox folder. I'm able to change the default web page. I want to change many of the settings on the Privacy & Security page and can't find the correct settings. The areas I would like to change are: Cookies and Site data; logins and passwords; forms; history; firefox data collecton

Hello. I have installed an add-on using a GPO. However, after upgrading to Firefox 68, my add-on is getting an installation error. Is it impossible to install by GPO on Firefox 68? If not, why is not it installed?

I attached the part that I confirmed by connecting to about: policies. Installation via download, not GPO, is installed normally, below is the installation link. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3365031/gradius-7.3.11-fx.xpi?src=devhub

In the case of GPO installation, my add-on as well as other add-ons are not installed.

Please check the issue. Thank you.

Good afternoon Community,

I am a (very new) enterprise admin for a very large organization. We have decided to start distributing Firefox (Quantum Version 68.0 32 bit) across our organization. We utilize a smart card application for logon, and user website authentication. We have every setting exactly how we want it, save one. Each individual user, for each profile they create, will need to upload the .DLL file from our smartcard reader application to the security devices. If this were just a hundred or so users, that would be easy, but we are in the thousands (and more.....). And many of these users are not technically savvy. Is there a way to have a specific library uploaded as a part of building the profile? Sort of like a pre-built default profile. Ideally, we would like to do this with no additional extensions or plugins installed.

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?

ProductCode (ProductID) after Firefox Setup 68.5.0esr.msi is installed - Not the same as .MSI installer

The ProductCode (ProductID) after Firefox Setup 68.5.0esr.msi is installed does not match to the ProductCode (ProductID) of the Firefox Setup 68.5.0esr.msi. We use SCCM to create the application deployment for Firefox ESR x64 and to install all the endpoints. When creating the deployment, SCCM automatically extracts the ProductCode, and uses the same to detect the presence of the application - if it's not present, it installs. The main issue is that when SCCM checks again the presence after it's installed, the deployment fails because the ProductCode after it's installed is different than what came with the MSI installer. I noticed that this is the case as well for Firefox Setup 68.4.0x esr.msi whereas in the past this was not the case.

See the attached file to see the screenshots.

Hello Guys,

I hope that you can help me. I work for a company with 900+ Windows Clients and several Terminal Server users. At the moment I deployed Firefox ESR 68.4.2 32-Bit. Yes 32-Bit, my mistake. Anyway, I want to update to version ESR 68.5.0. At the same time, I want to jump onto the 64-Bit version. This article mentioned no problem at all; install 64-Bit and afterwards uninstall the 32-Bit version of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/switch-32-bit-64-bit

I did this step for step but I can't see the bookmarks on the 64-Bit version. If I uninstall and reinstall the 32-Bit Version the bookmarks are back. I need help, please. The users are going to kill me, if I "delete" their bookmarks.

Greetings and thank you in advance!

Hello,

We have some trouble with Firefox in Windows Roaming Profiles: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional". The sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal are shown but they are fully inaccessible from CSC (client offline cache). Why does Firefox need to store this temp files in %appdata%? That's really bad design! sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal should be located in %localappdata%.

My solution is to just copy the profile folder, ignoring the inaccessible files. Then I just need to rename it to the original folder name and ff starts just fine. Does anyone know anything more to this problem? Thank you

I need to update the following settings on multiple computers:

- network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris
- network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris 

Is there a way to do this either via script or GPO?


I've loaded the latest ADMX controls (https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/releases), but didn't see these particular settings in the controls.

Thank you,

Paul

I am trying to package Firefox, with the browsers auto update disabled (updates are handled by the package manager, not the browser; having Firefox prompt at the user may cause confusion). However, I haven't been able to Firefox's nagging with recent (77+) versions.

I have tried writing a policies.json file seems to have no effect. In fact, Firefox didn't even look in system directories like /etc and /lib64/firefox. Is this an Enterprise Firefox feature? Is it even possible to share a single installation of Firefox between users (having their personal prefs in their home directories, ofcourse).

Thanks in advance!

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design
