How do I change this "Certificates ImportEnterpriseRoots true"?

more options

How do I change this "Certificates ImportEnterpriseRoots true"? I'm not part of any company, yet this setting has been set on all my units.

It prohibits me from changing some settings, and is driving me crazy.

Chosen solution

This is a pretty common question that gets asked here.

The ImportEnterpriseRoots policy is setup by a lot of security programs (antivirus, firewall, etc). Security programs often use this policy so that they can view incoming secure connections to check that the content is safe, without triggering error messages in Firefox.

That policy has no impact on what settings you will be able to use in Firefox. It will cause the "Your computer is being managed by your organization" warning message to appear on top of the settings page, but that's it.

Removing that policy from your computer often causes your security program to stop working and/or will cause issues in Firefox when loading some websites.

Hope this clears things up for you.
