Dear Mozilla support,

I have a Windows 10 machine that I'd like to apply new security settings to each user (block dangerous downloads, disable pop-up windows, automatic updates set, etc.). Is there a way I can create a few new security setting and push them to all the user on a machine?

If there is, would the process be the same for Windows 2019 server and Ubuntu?

Thank you, Bert

Dear support,

Thank you for the information and for the quick reply.

I created the distribution directory and a policies.json file as a test to block popups as follows:

{

 "policies": {
   "PopupBlocking": {
     "Default": true
   }
 }

}

I can see that the browser now says that my settings are managed by my organization, but popups are still being allowed. What's wrong with my policies.json file?

Please advise.

Thank you, Bert
