Firefox applying enterprise policies without policies.json file

Kuphostiwe

After a recent update I noticed my firefox account stopped working and in the preferences page I started seeing the message that "Your browser is managed by you organization".

I did some research and found that these settings (identity.fxaccounts.enabled:false in about:config) are managed through a policies.json file found in /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/distribution in Mac. But there is no distribution folder in the above path.

The problem persists even after uninstalling and reinstalling firefox and refreshing profiles.

PS: My computer is not managed by an organization.

On Mac there is another way to apply policies via a plist file. *https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md *https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/mac/org.mozilla.firefox.plist

See:

Note that org.mozilla.firefox.plist stores a lot more info than just the policies, so you can't just remove this file.

User plist files are saved in ~/Library/Preferences/
System wide plist files are stored in /Library/Preferences/
