I want a option to disable entering URL manually for users. I'll be publishing Mozilla in Citrix with URL bind with it, and need to disable adding tab or editing URL from address bar. How can I achieve that?

policies.json WebsiteFilter does not block website properly

Suppose I have a "policies.json" file in the "distribution" subdirectory of my Firefox installation.

And suppose "policies.json" file contains this:

{

 "policies": {
     "WebsiteFilter": {
         "Block": [
           "youtube.com",
           "www.youtube.com",
           "http://www.youtube.com",
           "https://www.youtube.com",
         ]
     }
 }

}


Now if I type "youtube.com" in the address bar, it shows "Your organisation has blocked access to this page or web site." It means firefox blocks "youtube.com" correctly. Meanwhile the url in the address bar is "https://www.youtube.com/."

But if I remove "https://www." from "https://www.youtube.com/" in the address bar (Not retype), I can actually visit "youtube.com." It means somehow the webfilter is not working properly.

This issue exists in ubuntu and macos with version 92.0(64-bit).

Does anyone have the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.
