Hi,

we want to switch our Firefox configuration from file-based (policies.json) to GPO-based. We rolled out the GPO on some test clients and it worked like a charm.

But... It shows that there are some clients which need a second firefox installation for a special purpose, which is not allowed to enter the internet or update itself.

The file-base configuration can handle these to different installations with two differend policies.json files.

Is there a way to accomplish this scenario with the use of GPOs? The GPO-base configuration seems to be global for every client.

At this moment i don't see a solution for our problem. Do you see one?

There is not a straightforward way to do this with GPO. There is a solution. Feel free to reach out to me at mkaply at mozilla.com and I'll explain.

I'd rather not publish how to do it for everyone :)
