Hi Experts,

Hi Experts,
I have few questions in my mind & below questions are the very important to my organization.
1: In Mozilla Firefox on any version of browser, I need to LOCK the advanced settings (Network / Proxy Settings) through GPO.
2: For this I have a solution. I can use GPO for Firefox Add-on, it will LOCK these settings like proxy settings as shown in the attached image, but the problem is user can easily disable this add-on.
3: This GPO Firefox Add-on I am not able deploy from GPO, because this is xpi package / extension.
4: I need to deploy these settings to be LOCK the Mozilla Firefox .
5: Please give me a solution. it is very very crucial in my organization.

Thanks for your support

I'm currently using the CCK Addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cck/ to lock down settings. It can be placed in the distribution directory of your firefox install through GPO and will be installed hidden to the user.

You can also put the appropriate preferences in the mozilla.cfg file.

You can modify mozilla.cfg like jpa said, and then deploy the modified MSI with AD.

You can also use the packager which will do the modification and create the MSI automatically.

Pay for the packager and save yourself the learning curve.

Or do it yourself with one of these methods.

I just created a script that copies the two necessary files from a central server. You can then create a startup/logon script in a GPO that runs the script to copy the files which locks the proxy settings.

You can set those using either mozilla.adm or firefox.adm. Import those into your MMC. Some of the simple GUI settings are in firefox.adm, and the "about:config" stuff is in mozilla.adm.
