Updated ADM / ADMX

Post by Ifan » Mon Nov 25, 2013 10:30 am


Can you please provide updated ADM files for FMFirefoxCE?

I see settings related to datareporting.healthreport are missing.

Also, The FixIExplore and RestoreIExplore custom actions in the installer are still broken on Norwegian Windows 7.
After one of the CAs runs IE stops thinking it's the default browser.

I support this request, I also need it.
I updated from FirefoxCE 19 to FirefoxCE 25.0.1, and now the toolbar at the bottom (data is sent to Mozilla) cannot be disabled by GPO with the outdated admx files.

For a quick solution, I modified the admx/adml files myself and tested it successfully working. I added just the one setting that is important for me.

In admx file I added:
<category name="DATAREPORTING_CATEGORY" displayName="$(string.DATAREPORTING_CATEGORY)">
<parentCategory ref="LOCKED_CATEGORY" />
<policy name="DATAREPORTING_ALLOW_HEALTHREPORT_UPLOAD" class="Machine" displayName="$(string.DATAREPORTING_ALLOW_HEALTHREPORT_UPLOAD)" explainText="$(string.DATAREPORTING_ALLOW_HEALTHREPORT_UPLOAD)" key="Software\Policies\Mozilla\lockPref" valueName="datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled">
<parentCategory ref="DATAREPORTING_CATEGORY" />
<supportedOn ref="windows:SUPPORTED_ProductOnly" />
<enabledValue><decimal value="1" /></enabledValue>
<disabledValue><decimal value="0" /></disabledValue>

And in adml file I added:
<string id="DATAREPORTING_CATEGORY">datareporting</string>
<string id="DATAREPORTING_ALLOW_HEALTHREPORT_UPLOAD">datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled</string>

Then, in GPOs, the setting is available to be able to set it to disabled (false):

I also set these (already available GPO settings), as I found them in another thread, I don't know if these are important:
toolkit.telemetry.enabled = false
toolkit.telemetry.prompted = 2

The toolbar that on the bottom telling that information are sent to Mozilla for improving Firefox is now gone/disabled.

Great post though.
