Can't get policies.json working on Kubuntu 20.0.04

Hi all,

I'm trying to automatically configure Firefox using the policies.json file, but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

I've created /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.json with this content: {

 "policies": {
   "Homepage": {
     "URL": "https://www.google.com/",
     "Locked": false,
     "StartPage": "homepage"
   }
 }

}

The file and directory permissions allow for read by everyone.

However, when I restart Firefox, I don't get google as my homepage.

What else can I check?

TIA,

Mike.

policiesStatus: 1; in the troubleshooting information would suggest the policies are active.

You can check the about:policies page (63+) to see whether policies are active and whether errors are reported.

Hi again,

I noticed the policiesStatus: 1 line and inferred that it meant that the policy was in place. But, even after restarting Firefox, I didn't see the effects of the policy.

I was expecting that the hope page would point to google, but that's not what I saw.

What does about:policies show ?

Well, about:policies indicates that I've done it right. See attached image.

Perhaps this setting doesn't do what I think it does...

I'm just wanting to set the home page to google. Am I missing something?

Maybe Ubuntu overrides the policies.json file with its own policies since you are using Firefox from the Ubuntu repositories.

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

OK, I extracted the firefox runtime from the website that you linked to. Then, I created the ./distrubtion/policies.json file, as before.

Only, this time, I see google as my homepage! Yay!

So, I guess the next question is how is ubuntu overriding my policies? Is that a question for this forum? Or do I need to go to ubuntu, now?

Thanks again,

Mike.

You can try to ask/search at Ubuntu support.

Ubuntu might be using a location like this: /etc/firefox/

I appreciate your time. I have posted a query to the kubuntu support forum.

Thank you,

Mike.
