Does anyone possess expertise in executing a forced update for Firefox within the user's profile directory located at "AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox"? It would be advantageous to employ a PowerShell script for rectifying this issue. It appears that certain users are not frequently opening Firefox, thus impeding the automatic update process.

Issue getting Firefox to launch for the first time, directly to a clicked link, without start page/default browser prompt

We are deploying Firefox installed via the v122 binary on Ubuntu 22.04.4 Server w/ubuntu-desktop-minimal --no-install-recommends (we need to have no-user-interaction install). We are using an Ansible playbook to copy over and unarchive the tarball, then create a firefox/distribution folder in the install directory and copying a profiles.json file to said folder, links the install directory to the /usr/bin/local directory, and setting firefox.desktop as the system default browser.

Using the instructions from: https://mozilla.github.io/policy-templates/

What we are hoping to accomplish is the user who has never launched Firefox will click on a link in an application, which will launch Firefox and go directly to the requested page. As it stands right now, the first time a user clicks the link, it launches firefox and shows a start page. The user must then close this window, and click the link again. This brings up a "Use Firefox as the default browser" prompt, which the user must accept, but then does not display the link. The third time the user clicks the link, the requested page pops up, and works from this time out.

We would like to have this be a one-click experience for the user. Looking at the options in about:config after getting firefox to launch, it appears firefox is not getting the options from the profiles.json file. Are we missing something about placement of this file? Missing some lines? Should we be using AutoConfig instead? Thank you for any assistance!

Issue with Blocking Websites in Mozilla Firefox via Group Policy

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.

Welcome, We are implementing redirected folders in our company via Widnows Server. We are also redirecting the Appdata folder. We have offline mode enabled which means that the folders are synchronised every 5 minutes. The synchronised Appdata folder has a Firefox profile which causes a lot of conflicts. Every time the folder is synced there are conflicts like "Both versions have been updated since the last sync" or "Cannot sync now. Try again". I attach a screen shot of how much of this there is. No other applications cause such errors. Only Firefox blocks us from a large deployment. If the problem cannot be resolved we will be forced to abandon the FireFox browser altogether. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Hi there,

We are currently utilizing Windows Server 2019 as our development server. To maintain security protocols, we have implemented a Group Policy to block internet access on this server. Initially, this configuration successfully restricted internet access on all browsers, including Firefox. However, recently we encountered an issue where internet access became available solely through the Firefox browser, posing a significant data security risk.

Upon investigation, we discovered that Firefox allows users to modify proxy settings, effectively bypassing our Group Policy restrictions. Unlike other browsers, Firefox permits users to adjust proxy settings without sufficient rights, thus overriding our established restrictions.

To mitigate this issue, we require guidance on enforcing Group Policy settings within Firefox to prevent unauthorized alterations to proxy settings and ensure internet access remains restricted. It's important to note that Firefox is exclusively utilized for development purposes on our server.

Your assistance in resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Hiten

Dear Forum,

Maybe this has been already asked but i keep getting the quite opposite when searching.

is there a way that i can save passwords, for autofill purposes, for specific websites in Firefox using GPO?.

I have 4 computers, that are currently deployed with Firefox and all 4 should be able to login to a specific website with a given username and password. I would like to set the username and password for them stored in the Firefox password manager and let it autofill it for them when going to the given website.

Or should i do this using the created shortcut they received, deployed to their systems using GPO?

Thank you in advanced.

We are currently looking at devices with out-of-date Firefox versions these are listed with vulnerabilities within our environment and need to be patched to the latest version to cover those vulnerabilities.

With the volume of patching required, we want to be able to enable auto-update and allow the application to patch itself.

However, the current options via group policy don't seem to work as I've read on such threads https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1876302.

The application Autoupdate has been enabled within local group policy as a test and nothing seems to force the application to update unless a user enters the application and selects about.

Reading into how Firefox does this it doesn't seem viable to enable an auto-update feature without specifying the version it needs to upgrade to, we can currently patch to specific versions using SCCM.

Is anyone aware of a solution to this problem or another method?

Looked into calling updater.exe and the maintenance service but nothing i successful when trying to call on these.

Hello, from Terminal Servers, it is not possible to browse the Internet via FortiGate's explicit proxy from the Firefox browser, while there is no problem with Chrome or Edge. When the user tries to browse external sites, the proxy sends the error page "You need to authenticate to use this service". It seems that Firefox does not pass user authentication to FortiGate. The proxy authenticates users per session via Kerberos tickets.

Firefox version: 115.5.0esr

I also performed the following settings to pass the Kerberos ticket to the proxy without success: https://people.redhat.com/mikeb/negotiate/

I also noticed that it is not possible to change the "network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies" setting from "false" to "true." Is this my problem? Is it normal that it cannot be changed?

Attached are the settings.

I am writing from an enterprise environment and I have been directed to the community page by Mozilla support to seek answers. This approach seems somewhat unreasonable for an enterprise setting and it has led me to consider discontinuing their product within our organization. I had requested support to send me a copy of my previous correspondence as I had forgotten some details, but this request was ignored, which is disappointing.

I am skeptical about receiving the help or answers I need here. If there is a more direct line to Mozilla support, I would greatly appreciate being redirected there.

We are currently using Firefox 121.0 and are attempting to implement the Applied Epic extension. I have updated the ADMX policy.

Originally, the reg key flip I created did work but something has changed since then. See screenshot of this. I followed the guide provided at https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/v5.5/docs/index.md, which instructed me to place the registry key in Software\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions\Install\1. However, the guide did not specify whether this should be in HKLM or HKCU. I tried this instead, and it did not work.

I also attempted to implement the extension via GPO, but this was unsuccessful. I tried the new Extension Management system as well, but to no avail.

Here is the JSON configuration I used: {

 "AppliedEpicExtension@gmail.com": {
   "installation_mode": "force_installed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/4143256/applied_epic_extension-3.16.3.xpi"
 }

}

Despite following the guide and trying multiple methods, none of the options seem to work. I would appreciate any guidance on what I might be doing wrong.
