We are looking to mass deploy Firefox x64 for Windows to all staff in our organization, using SCCM. I know you can set a default home page in mozilla.cfg for all users, including future users who don't yet have a profile on the computer Firefox is installed on. Is there a similar option so I can configure Firefox to always show the menu bar for all users? Preferably, another line I can add to mozilla.cfg so that I can easily copy that to all our machines? Thanks.

Hi, I would like to migrate my 5000 users over onto FF. One of the requirements is to preload bookmarks for these users, something we can do with Chrome already. We are running on Windows devices and use an ADMX and an XML (listing the bookmarks and folders) to push this policy via InTune. I can't find any means of replicating it in FF... is it possible?

Dear Forum,

Maybe this has been already asked but i keep getting the quite opposite when searching.

is there a way that i can save passwords, for autofill purposes, for specific websites in Firefox using GPO?.

I have 4 computers, that are currently deployed with Firefox and all 4 should be able to login to a specific website with a given username and password. I would like to set the username and password for them stored in the Firefox password manager and let it autofill it for them when going to the given website.

Or should i do this using the created shortcut they received, deployed to their systems using GPO?

Thank you in advanced.

Issue with Blocking Websites in Mozilla Firefox via Group Policy

We followed the links below to block internet access in Firefox browser:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAGYYX5hYb8 https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/releases

We downloaded the ADMX and ADML files. Using these files, we were able to locate Mozilla Firefox in Group Policy Management and successfully block all websites in the Firefox browser using the pattern :///*.

However, we encountered an issue with exceptions. We do not wish to block certain websites, including localhost. We attempted to use the "Exceptions to block websites" option, providing values such as ://msn.com/ to exclude specific sites. Unfortunately, this approach did not work as intended. For instance, msn.com is one of the websites we want to allow, among others and also localhost.

We require assistance with the following issue: "Exceptions to block websites" is not functioning properly within the group policy of Mozilla Firefox.

We have a client using Azure Virtual Desktops. Most of the users prefer to use Firefox. We are having an issue that anytime we update Firefox and reimage the virtual hosts. When the users login they get a new Firefox profile. We have to remote in and copy their old profile data to the new profile.

Is there a better way for us to handle Firefox and profiling in and Azure Virtual Desktop deployment?

We're exploring the possibility of implementing a mass update for Firefox through backend management, leveraging PowerShell scripts or any applicable method that can streamline the update process for our users.

Additionally, we've encountered instances where users have installed Firefox via local profiles, posing challenges for centralized updates. I'd appreciate any insights or guidance on how we can address this issue effectively to ensure these installations align with our centralized management approach.

I have an issue on a Mac OS Server environment with home folders. The user's login to the MAC which authenticates to the Open Directory MAC server giving home folders to the logged-on users that reside on the server and not the local workstation. Users commonly use different computers to log in. What we're finding is that the users are increasingly getting the error message that a copy of firefox is open and firefox cannot open.

Removing the lock file solves the issue.

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/ cd uniqueid.default rm -rf .parentlock

Is there a way to avoid this? We have the most current version of FF installed.

Does anyone possess expertise in executing a forced update for Firefox within the user's profile directory located at "AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox"? It would be advantageous to employ a PowerShell script for rectifying this issue. It appears that certain users are not frequently opening Firefox, thus impeding the automatic update process.

Hi,

I've been struggling for a week to try and get our extensions managed in Firefox. Firstly I tried doing it in Intune through the Extension Management setting in the ADMX however that wouldn't work as it couldn't parse the JSON. Then I've tried using the OMA-URI ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Firefox~Policy~firefox~Extensions/ExtensionSettings

I'm now getting a straight up error in Intune -2016281112 (0x87d1fde8). I've followed the documentation as best as I can but it still doesn't seem to work. In the Intune logs there is no record of the Config profile even being attempted. Any ideas as to what is causing this error? Here is the full code being used for the OMA-URI string:

We try to deploy Extension Management Settings via GPO.

Goal is to allow only whitelisted extensions, but don't block themes, dictionaries and locales.

Below find the JSON-settings deployed to the client, which should allow all themes and whitelisted extensions. Unfortunately this blocks everything except whitelisted IDs. See example screenshot with error-message, when trying to install a theme. We don't want to whitelist locales or themes, they should be still allowed for installation.

What I'm doing wrong? - Thanks for your feedback.
