  • Hello,

    • If you need to specify a proxy server, copy the following information into "mozilla.cfg" :

    //Firefox Default Settings //set proxy server settings pref("network.proxy.ftp", "proxy.server.local"); pref("network.proxy.ftp_port", 8080); pref("network.proxy.gopher", "proxy.server.local"); pref("network.proxy.gopher_port", 8080); pref("network.proxy.http", "proxy.server.local"); pref("network.proxy.http_port", 8080); pref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost,, *.server.local"); pref("network.proxy.type", 1); pref("network.proxy.share_proxy_settings", true); // use the same proxy settings for all protocols

    • Then copy "mozilla.cfg" in %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Mozilla Firefox\

    • Create a new text file called ‘policies.js’ and copy in the following information:

    pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

    • Then copy ‘policies.js’ in %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref
  • I would use Group Policy for this. Mozilla released the ADMX a few months ago.
