We followed the links below to block internet access in Firefox browser:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAGYYX5hYb8 https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/releases

We downloaded the ADMX and ADML files. Using these files, we were able to locate Mozilla Firefox in Group Policy Management and successfully block all websites in the Firefox browser using the pattern :///*.

However, we encountered an issue with exceptions. We do not wish to block certain websites, including localhost. We attempted to use the "Exceptions to block websites" option, providing values such as ://msn.com/ to exclude specific sites. Unfortunately, this approach did not work as intended. For instance, msn.com is one of the websites we want to allow, among others and also localhost.

We require assistance with the following issue: "Exceptions to block websites" is not functioning properly within the group policy of Mozilla Firefox.

The WebsiteFilter policy requires specifying a protocol or at least a wildcard (*) in its place.

If you want to block all URLs, you can use <all_urls> or *://*/*. You can’t have just a * on the right side. For specific protocols, use https://*/* or http://*/*.

Specifically MSN.com would be

*://www.msn.com/*
