Firefox 58.0.2 CE: Some GPO setting do not work

Postby MHX » Thu Mar 01, 2018 3:18 am

I test Firefox 58.0.2 CE de (German). I added some settings to admx/adml templates, but some do not work.

It seems that all browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.* settings do not apply via GPO.

I added:
privacy.trackingprotection.introCount = 20 (it works)
(counter >=20 means that no introduction bubble is shown to the user for tracking protection)

browser.newtabpage.introShown = 1 (it works)
(no introduction for the new newtab-page)

The following do not work:
browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.highlights = 0
browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories = 0
browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.snippets = 0
browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.topSitesCount = 12
(on newtab-page show no Highlights, TopStories or Snippets, but show 2 rows of most visited sites -> 12 sites)

Is this something that needs to be fixed in Firefox CE?

Thanks,
Michael

Hmm. I assume they work if set normally?

Yes, manually set in about:config it works.
"not work" via gpo means that these settings are not applied and not locked as if not set in gpo.
