We have a dns filter that needs to resolve all dns querys and we need a certificate on all systems to allow our Fortigate to do deep packed inspection on all traffic including encrypted.

We block our user's access to about:config in Firefox for security reasons. I need to set the browser.cache.disk.capacity and browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size for a group of users as recommended by an online services provider. Those values are not available under the preferences policy in the ADMX template for Firefox. How can I set these values in group policy? Is there a registry entry I can make? I tried changing them on my computer and then finding the change in the registry but was unable to find the changed values.

I downloaded the admx files for Mozilla Firefox and put them in with the other Windows provided Administrative Local Policy Templates, thinking that it SHOULD show up in the Group Policy Editor tool provided with Windows 10. Apparently I could not have been more wrong. Does anybody know how to make the template show up on a non-domain (Home PC running Windows 10 Pro) computer? Granted, I know I can't control it from "Active Directory" since there is none, but I still want to add this functionality to the PC.

What I have tried: I renamed C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions to C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions.old I then Reopened GPEditor and verified all templates had been cleared of viewing (Empty set). I then created a new folder called C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions and copied the files into it. It refuses to read the Firefox, but everything else shows back up. I downloaded the files again, and reinstalled them, but it still does not show up. I then Rebooted the PC, but my attempts were futile. Any assistance would be appreciated.

My purpose is deploy specific Certification Authority, which is available in network share, to Firefox by Active Directory group policy (Windows 2012 R2) or alternately to set 'security. enterprise_roots' to 'enabled' so that Firefox can use Windows Certificate Store. Clients are using Firefox on Windows XP, 7, 10 and consequentially different Firefox version. Can I apply my task ? Suggestions ?

Good Morning, In my organization some years ago I pushed to have Firefox as our default browser and finally was accepted. It has been very good as we have over 10K employees using it. However this last week there has been a new release that forces you to create a new profile, one that is achieved all of you original settings and data are gone. We are a health care organization and cannot have this. I sent the fix (about:profiles) to our triage support department. However once the old profile is chosen and made the default. It will revert back to the new one each time you restart or the next day. I need a permanent fix, is there a way to update the old profile to the new version of Firefox? Shouldnt it stay the default once you make it so? I am getting inundated with calls over this, please send the fix asap.

Today at 11:30 AM Just to be clear, you tried the about:profiles fix in the Recover user data missing after Firefox update article ... but it will revert back to a new profile at every restart? (YES) In any case, since you are using Firefox in an organizational environment I'll move this to the Enterprise forum. (WHERE IS THIS AND HOW DO I GET TO IT?)

AliceWyman • Top 25 Contributor • Moderator

Today at 11:47 AM P.S. See also https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1267878 New clear profile every time after Firefox update and Dedicated profiles per Firefox installation ... which refers to Downgrade protection and starting Firefox with the --allow-downgrade command line option, when you have multiple versions of Firefox installed. (DID THIS)


NEED SOME REAL HELP HERE, NOT JUST LINKS TO STUFF I ALREADY TRIED. I APPRECIATE THE REPLY BUT SINCE YOU CLOSED THE TICKET AND MOVED IT, I CANNOT FIND IT NOR CAN I REPLY TO YOU. I HAD TO OPE A BRAND NEW TICKET.

Is there an option to enable auto update of firefox in all windows devices where the firefox is installed by the users manually from internet sites(different versions) not from intune. Waiting for the response. Thank you

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

We have three 2012 R2 terminal servers with about 75 users. Disk space for local windows profiles has recently gotten short and while investigating I found nearly all users have a default Firefox profile and then seven default-release-1 (1-7). Each of these files is from 165mb to 1GB in size so I estimate each user has 3GB of space used by old profiles. This times 75 user that is 225GB of wasted space on each terminal server!

Why is the one 64bit Firefox install creating some many profiles?

Also, is there any way to limit cache file storage. Personally, I've never noticed any performance difference in a 25meg vs 250 meg cache allocation and the impact on space with many users is considerable.

Thanks
