I am running Firefox 14.0.1 in a Citrix Enviroment and the applications are being virtualized. If a user is running Firefox, the user is able to browse the local machine and launch applications if he or she knows the path to the applications.exe. I was able to lock down IE uisng Active Directory group policy but I am unable to fine a solution that I can apply for Firefox. I have FireFox installed on over 50 servers running Windows 2008 R2 64 bit.

I have a blog sign-in on the Washington Post website. I use it all the time. Today, Firefox is blocking it, because it is an "Untrusted Website". I checked the page's certificate and it looks OK. I don't know why this is happening, but there seems to be no way to override the block. The dialog box won't even open fully. This is all I get This Connection is Untrusted

That's all it shows. Please fix this problem for me.
