How to disable access to proxy settings

I need to enable the proxy on my network and disable users from changing the settings, is there any way to do this in Mozilla?

Thank you for your help.

Re: How to disable access to proxy settings

Hi,

Please see this.

The settings you may want to lock are network.proxy.http and network.proxy.http_port or network.proxy.autoconfig_url

Useful links:

Going beyond Tools > Options - about:config

about:config Entries

What's That Preference? add-on - Quickly decode about:config entries - After installation, go inside about:config, right-click any preference, enable (tick) MozillaZine Results to Panel and again right-click a pref and choose MozillaZine Reference to begin with.

Re: How to disable access to proxy settings

Use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify default values.

Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.

pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift

See:

You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:

defaultPref();  // set new default value
pref();         // set pref, but allow changes in current session
lockPref();     // lock pref, disallow changes
