Is there a way to pre-configure firefox with the necessary bookmarks, configurations, and security settings for all users when they open it for the first time? If I could get a detailed guide or a link to an existing one that would be amazing.

Also any other recommendations for a pre-config would be great.

E.G. I need to enable/configure the following

  • network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris
  • network.negotiate-auth.allow-non-fqdn
  • security.certerrors.mitm.auto_enable_enterprise_roots
  • security.enterprise_roots.enabled
  • Add a series of bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar

The initialization shortcut should include a script that copies a master profile over to the user's profile. Mozilla Firefox saves profiles under this location:


Next, copy the profiles.ini file from the parent directory:


You can edit this file to specify the profile that is engaged when a user selects the Firefox icon.
