Hello everyone,

You can only use GPO or a policies.json file. You cannot use both. GPO will override policies.json. Firefox will not read anything in your policies.json file if you are using GPO.

Which one you choose will depend on the computers in your network. Where possible, GPO is usually preferred. However, the policies.json file will work across multiple different operating systems, making it ideal for networks that have not only Windows computers.

Hope this answers your question.
