Hello,
I would like to be able to manage Firefox with Active Directory and Group Policy - I know there are a few tools out there but can anyone recommend to best tool to use - I assume you will have to add a program to the AD server so I want to make sure it comes very well recommended.

Thank you,
Ryan.

Firefox doesn't allow you to do this natively; the native Firefox download is not in MSI form - so cannot be pushed through Group Policy - and doesn't have any Active Directory integration.

On all my networks, I push the FrontMotion Firefox MSI. This is essentially Firefox, which has been re-packaged for a corporate environment. The Firefox instance which is installed also has Group Policy support, meaning you can download the custom Mozilla ADM file, import it, and then manage virtually any setting in Firefox via Group Policy.

See http://www.frontmotion.com/Firefox/fmfirefox.htm. You're looking at the 'Frontmotion Firefox Community Edition', which is a free download.
