I've followed the deployment instructions on:

I've applied some settings to a GPO: settings

However, When I do GPUPDATE, log out, log back in, nothing has changed...? Am I missing something?

I'm using Firefox 3.6.2.

Does not look like you followed the instructions perfectly. Rename the files from .lgns to .vbs to start. firefox_login.vbs should be under User Configuration and login script not Computer Configuration. Fix that, gpupdate /force the target machine, and reboot. Might take another reboot to apply the settings. gpresult to ensure the policy's are applied if you are still having issues.

i have renamed them to .vbs (i did this just after i took screenshot) - should the firefox_startup.vbs still be in Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings / Scripts or should i move this one to the user config too? – alex Apr 1 '10 at 8:26
As per the instructions: If you wish to lock down settings in Firefox, add the firefox_startup.vbs script to Startup Scripts (Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Scripts). If you wish to set default settings in Firefox, add the firefox_login.vbs script to Login Scripts (User Configuration/Windows Settings/Scripts). – xeon Apr 1 '10 at 15:54
