policies.json WebsiteFilter does not block website properly

Suppose I have a "policies.json" file in the "distribution" subdirectory of my Firefox installation.

And suppose "policies.json" file contains this:

{

 "policies": {
     "WebsiteFilter": {
         "Block": [
           "youtube.com",
           "www.youtube.com",
           "http://www.youtube.com",
           "https://www.youtube.com",
         ]
     }
 }

}


Now if I type "youtube.com" in the address bar, it shows "Your organisation has blocked access to this page or web site." It means firefox blocks "youtube.com" correctly. Meanwhile the url in the address bar is "https://www.youtube.com/."

But if I remove "https://www." from "https://www.youtube.com/" in the address bar (Not retype), I can actually visit "youtube.com." It means somehow the webfilter is not working properly.

This issue exists in ubuntu and macos with version 92.0(64-bit).

Does anyone have the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Firefox ESR master password prompt twice

With recent updates of Firefox ESR I'm seeing two master password prompts in FIPS mode when starting up Firefox. This article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/12… (tuilleadh eolais)

With recent updates of Firefox ESR I'm seeing two master password prompts in FIPS mode when starting up Firefox. This article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1262314 does not solve my particular problem. The problem I'm seeing behaves exactly how this user describes, except for me it only happens in FIPS mode.

My OS is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in FIPS mode. My Firefox version is 78.6 ESR with no addons installed.

Disabling FIPS mode fixes the problem but I cannot do that as it goes against company policy.

I have attached two screen shots showing the double master password prompt and after entering the password, the remaining prompt still showing.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I am trying to package Firefox, with the browsers auto update disabled (updates are handled by the package manager, not the browser; having Firefox prompt at the user may cause confusion). However, I haven't been able to Firefox's nagging with recent (77+) versions.

I have tried writing a policies.json file seems to have no effect. In fact, Firefox didn't even look in system directories like /etc and /lib64/firefox. Is this an Enterprise Firefox feature? Is it even possible to share a single installation of Firefox between users (having their personal prefs in their home directories, ofcourse).

Thanks in advance!
