GPO for Firefox

For companies that use firefox as a browser, it was difficult to control due to the lack of admx file and the implementation of policies required scripts to copy the settings file.

Since May 2018, firefox has officially offered ADMX files in order to be able to set up group policies (GPO) to configure Firefox in a company.

Prerequisite: have an Active Directory environment.

1. Download definitions for Firefox here : Releases · mozilla/policy-templates · GitHub

2. Unzip the archive.

3. Now you need to copy the ADMX and ADML files to your store on a domain controller.

  • Local store : C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions
  • Central store : \\dc-server\SYSVOL\domain-name\Policies\PolicyDefinitions

4. All that remains is to create group policies using the console.

Policies do not work with versions lower than 60.
