To whom who can help,

I am attempting to hard code the homepage for Mozilla Firefox so that it opens only a specific page when Mozilla is started. I am aware with how to achieve this by going into the Mozilla settings in the browser, however id like to make this change on a deep configuration level so that it cannot be changed by end users.

I have achieved success with doing it on Google Chrome using a "master preferences" file which was imported into Google Chrome's program files folder and I would like to know if anyone can help me achieve the same with Mozilla. Our end goal is to put this working solution on an image and distribute new computers with pre configured Mozilla settings unchangeable by the end user.

Also, just as background, I have attempted to google the solution or see if there were any configuration files out there I could alter to my liking but I haven't been able to find any.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I am trying to make Mozilla Firefox open all pdfs from Firefox in Adobe without prompting the users about whether they want to save or open.

Any ideas? I don't want to have to set the application handler manually for 1500+ computers. Thanks!

We have Firefox deployed to hundreds of workstations in a domain environment. We would like to control local site data storage, such as setting the amount of local site data storage can be used, which sites can store local data, or just have Firefox delete site data when closed.

We use Firefox .cfg file to set different options, such as this: // Set cache size limit clearPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity") lockPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity", 10240);

But we cannot find an option to control site data. Is there any configuration for controlling local site data that we can deploy to all users/installations?

Thanks!

Good morning all

We are trying to put Firefox (already installed) as the default internet browser (currently IE 11) on our fleet of machines under Windows 7.

I found a Microsoft solution which consists of modifying two values ​​in the registry:

HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Associations \ UrlAssociations \ http (and https) at a minimum.

Concretely, the web shortcuts open well with Firefox, however when we go to menu, Firefox options, it is not considered as the default browser. (unhappy smiley: D)

And I don't want users to click on it themselves)

My question is the following, is there an easy way to change it to the default browser by GPO firefox? (which reproduces the click on this button)

Or a list of things to do in the registry to reproduce clicking on the button to set Firefox by default in the menu, options.

I did a regshot before and after clicking on this button, and compared, but it seems quite tedious to me (Keys added: 125, Values ​​added: 113, and some modified values)

Thank you in advance to all

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design

Hi,

I'm trying to install an addon for my users at my company. I have about 4500 machines that need to have this extension installed and I can't find what I need in order to install the extension globally through the registry. Mozilla just came out with Firefox 75 and now I can't add an addon to the browser without having to remote into the computer and move the extension into the browser to install the addon, I would like to avoid to minimize impact to my company's resources.

I've tried this site below. Tried to put an entry into the registry and it's not working. https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/enterprise/enterprise-distribution/#installation-using-windows-registry

Tried this site to try and find the GUID folder and can't find it in the Roaming folder https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cannot-remove-add-on-extension-or-theme

Tried this site but still can't find the GUID folder in roaming https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/publish/distribute-sideloading/

Could I get steps on how to install an addon into the registry for Firefox 75?

Group Policy: How Do I Whitelist Plugins Not Hosted By Mozilla?

Hi there,

I'm attempting to configure group policy in my organisation to only allow the install of selected Firefox plugins present in our whitelist. I am doing this via the ExtensionSettings policy within the Firefox templates v1.14

I have successfully made the default behavior to block plugins, using this string:

   "*": {
   "blocked_install_message": "Extension is not whitelisted. Please contact IT Support",
   "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
   "installation_mode": "blocked"
 }

I'm even able to successfully whitelist plugins on the mozilla addon page, example below:

   "support@lastpass.com": {
   "installation_mode": "allowed",
   "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lastpass-password-manager/"
 }

My problem is I can't seem to whitelist any plugins that are installed from any source other than Mozilla. For example, Dashlane is only available via their website. I tried the following, but it still says blocked.

   "jetpack-extension@dashlane.com": {
   "installation_mode": "allowed",
   "install_url": "https://www.dashlane.com/en/"
 }

I have run into the same issue with another plugin, even when using the full URL of the .xpi file. I've played around with this for a good few hours, but nothing seems to work. Any advice?

Thanks in advance.
