I know that firefoxadm works for old versions of Firefox but it does not for the latest versions. what are people using now, how do you configure for newer versions of firefox?


You might be interested in Frontmotion's Firefox package which includes GPO templates. We've just today updated to the latest version of Firefox using this, and everything appears to be working fine.

  • i have tried this and the settings work but i have a problem with firefox. i cannot open new tabs once deployed, i have tried firefox ce 9 , 8. if i install by itself, opening tabs work fine. – shorif2000 Feb 6 '12 at 11:35
  • Can you disable the policy that holds the configuration (whilst leaving the deployment policy alone)? If this cures it after a gpupdate /force /boot, that would suggest the problem is down to one of the settings you've configured in the policy editor. – Bryan Feb 6 '12 at 12:25
  • i have tried it still does not work. this only occurs on 32bit machines, on 64bit the tabs work fine – shorif2000 Feb 6 '12 at 15:13
  • does tabs work for you? what versions have you deployed? – shorif2000 Feb 6 '12 at 15:34
  • Frontmotion Firefox 9.0.1 is working perfectly here with GPO templates and tabs. When you state it isn't working, what do you see? Does CTRL-T open a tab or does the 'new tab' icon not appear. Do you get an error message? – Bryan Feb 6 '12 at 15:50

Also, consider using the Autoconfig feature that is built into Firefox if you need something that's more flexible (at the expense of complexity of course).

  • I use Autoconfig for 300+ machines, great tool and option. – Tim Jan 13 '12 at 14:15
  • can anyone show any how to guides on this? does the autoconfig feature support single sign on.. ntlm or ntld i think it is called not sure – shorif2000 Feb 2 '12 at 12:15
  • @sharif Single-sign-on for what exactly? Proxy access? – the-wabbit Feb 2 '12 at 12:46
