I am using the most recent Firefox ADMX templates and I am unable to get bookmarks to show up using JSON. I have verified that the GPO is applied, and there is a registry key being created under the user's profile, however it is not the right registry key.

The key it is creating: SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox\Bookmarks Type: Reg_Multi-SZ


If I rename this registry key from Bookmarks to ManagedBookmarks, the bookmarks show up and work as intended.

I do not see "ManagedBookmarks" in the GPO anywhere. If I am not setting "ManagedBookmarks" in the correct location then please show me where I am supposed to set them. I am tempted to just modify the ADMX template and have it create the registry key "ManagedBookmarks" instead of "Bookmarks" as that seems to work, but I can't imagine this is how the devs wanted this.

If you're trying to use JSON, you're definitely doing ManagedBookmarks.

It's documented here:

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/#ManagedBookmarks

And it's in the GPO. See the attached image.
