I had a question around supporting Firefox within an Enterprise. When we first looked into this (years ago) Firefox didn’t support GPO natively, so we decided to package (SCCM) it with are configuration settings built in for Single Sign On (SSO) and work home page. The issue we are seeing is that our Desktop support guys/girls are seeing Firefox as available within our deployment software (Software Center) and installing it, even though the user doesn’t use it. This has led to a lot of outdated versions within our environment. I wanted to see what others are doing within an enterprise to manage Firefox.
Thanks for reading!
Thank you Philipp, much appreciated!
Hello. Sadly I would like announce that my 8 year old journey with Firefox and Mozilla has ended. Next week I'm going to remove firefox from all 50 machines in my organization. Will be using combo IE and Chrome (the browser that i actually hate). The reasons is: Firefox neither has MSI installers nor option for GPO management , which Chrome has and well documented it. In past I strugled, but kept using FF. Lately FF kicked me in my butt. I used installers from FrontMotion, but recent release 45.3 is so buggy, that it's nearly unusable (memory leacks). At Frontmotion it is the newest version. All the problems forced me to ditch FF forever. I'm writing this only to let the Developer Team, to increase the quality of products and to let Mozilla know why my big love just ended.
