How to configure "What Firefox should do with other files" with policies.json

Hi,

I deployed the last Firefox ESR update and I just found about this new feature : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-downloads-preferences-using-downloads-menu

So files are now downloaded and users are no longer prompted for what to do. My question is can we change this to "Ask whether to open or save files" using policies.json?

Kind regards,

McB

I have a need to use regular browser (not kiosk), but disable the "open downloads folder" once a file has been downloaded. This is opening a file manager (thunar or alike) which then allows the user to browse the filesystem and open a terminal emulator from /usr/bin.

Using the policies, I am able to prompt for downloads, or select a download location, however I have been unable to completely stop the user from opening the download folder which opens a file browser.

Is there any way I can select policies or profile options for disabling the option for opening download folder?

Hi, Background: a few months ago I had to redeploy the CA for a network I manage. I was able to do so and publish the new intermediate CA's cert via Active Directory. Since then, I've updated certs on webhosts with certs from the new CA. Whenever a user uses FF (version 91.12.0) to browse to a site with the newly signed cert, I get an error stating "sec_error_ocsp_old". I've been able to temporarily advise users to disable OCSP Validation in FF security settings, but I'd REALLY like to fix this.

Other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Opera) all load the sites without issue.

Using this the below article, I double checked the time settings on the CA, Webserver, and clients: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-time-errors-secure-websites

All the machines/VMs in question show the same time source, time, time zone, and sync interval.

I'm at a loss for what is happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Steps:

Issue:

  • The google result page doesn't fit into the window and has a horizontal scrollbar to see content on the right hand side

Note: I need my website to fit into browser properly at 100%(default) zoom itself for the purpose of automation because changing zoom level via selenium automation to press ctrl and minus 3 times causes unexpected behavior like even though value is filled in a textbox, it doesn't get sent in the API request payload. (Python 3.4.3, Selenium 3.12.0, GeckoDriver 0.31.0)

Versions:

  • Ubuntu 14.04.6
  • Firefox 91.13.0ESR
  • VNC: Tight VNC Viewer 2.8.63 OR Real VNC Viewer 6.22.515

Hi,

I've been tasked to make some changes to the way users deal with logins and passwords in the office. So, in short, one of the issues is this: is there ANY way to disable (I'd say "hide" is more accurate) the about:logins page on Firefox?

  • pref.privacy.disable_button.view_passwords (with a lock pref) in autoconfig only disables the "View saved logins" button in Settings.

As for policies:

  • a few policies for blocking about: pages do exist - BlockAboutAddons/Config/Profiles/Support, but can't find one, say, "BlockAboutLogins" or something like that.
  • PasswordManagerEnabled set to false disables the password manager completely, including about:logins, password autofill is disabled as well - not what I need.
  • WebsiteFilter, as expected, doesn't treat about: as a protocol, so it can't be done there either.


Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I am deploying Mozilla Firefox using Intune. The application is deployed no problem but there is always the error in Intune portal. I was told that Mozilla Firefox has custom return codes to indicate post-installation behavior. That is why though the application itself is installed and works properly on the device, Intune portal does not know the status of the installation and gives the error. This error causes a lot of issues to the further application management. Dose any one knows what those codes are? Or maybe can point into the correct direction on how to get them. Thank you.

I am an administrator at a university and we use Blackboard and Zoom as a couple of the tools at our university. We install Firefox on all of our PCs across campus. After a recent update, when our instructors try to launch Zoom using the integration setup in Blackboard, the meeting fails to launch. We have found that disabling Enhanced Protection fixes this issue. Is there a way to add this exception to an install file that can be sent across many PCs on our campus? We have hundreds of PCs and going from one to another to install this exception would not be practical.

Do you have any suggestions? Justin

We use GPO to push out our Firefox homepage and bookmarks. I get totally different results for each user, some will make changes right away if I add a new book marks, but they don't see older ones?

I decided to build a few test machines (we don't have time to build a dev envir) and it applies the GPO for the home page but not the bookmarks, I can see the book marks in the registry even but nothing on firefox. Anyone have a guess?

Our users are complaining about having to individually make exceptions via the shield icon and selecting custom and unchecking all boxes does not work for our use case scenario. Is there any option to disable this completely or are there plans in future releases to allow us a disable feature (like you used to have) or is the only solution to switch our users to Chrome?

I have an issue on a Mac OS Server environment with home folders. The user's login to the MAC which authenticates to the Open Directory MAC server giving home folders to the logged-on users that reside on the server and not the local workstation. Users commonly use different computers to log in. What we're finding is that the users are increasingly getting the error message that a copy of firefox is open and firefox cannot open.

Removing the lock file solves the issue.

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/ cd uniqueid.default rm -rf .parentlock

Is there a way to avoid this? We have the most current version of FF installed.

Hello, Qualys is detecting Vulnerabilites on our Firefox ESR 91.12 Versions which were patched by MFSA2022-29.

It is showing Vulnerabilities because MFSA2022-30 lists CVE's for ESR 102.X and we are on 91.12.

Is there anywhere I can go to get a list of all Vulnerabilities on 91.X to show our Security team, I believe CVE-2022-36314 and CVE-2022-2505 are not present in 91.12 because they are not listed in https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2022-29/ but need evidence

We have a customer using our SaaS solution running through Firefox 91.12.0 ESR. The web application we provide requires access to the camera on the local machine so we can capture a photo. We give them instructions and they configure their instance of Firefox to ALLOW access to the camera, along with several other adjustments (like allowing pop-ups, and no autofill).

However, whenever they restart Firefox the camera permission reverts back to the DEFAULT of Always Ask. The other settings adjustments we make, like pop-ups and no autofill stick around, but not the camera setting.

We've checked the PREF.js file in the Profile folder and that doesn't appear to be a problem. On our in-house machines we are running the same version of Windows and Firefox and cannot reproduce the problem.

The customer has recently applied the upgrade from an earlier version of Firefox ESR to 91.12.0. The customer has also imaged the PC and copied over to a large number of additional machines for use around their organization. This problem is causing a serious disruption to their deployment of the updated PC's as we work with them to try and troubleshoot the problem.

Any ideas on what to try would be appreciated.
