Firefox groupo policy

Hi All,


I haveadded my own self certificate to all our desktop and laptop computers.

it would seem the geeks at firefox still want to flag this as an issue.

I found these instructions on the internet to disable their "self signed" warning message for a specific site.



Bypassing the warning
You can tell Firefox to bypass these certificate warnings. You should only bypass the warning if you're sure that the site is legitimate. Legitimate public sites will not ask you to do this. An invalid certificate can be an indication of a web page that will defraud you or steal your identity.

On the warning page, click Or you can add an exception....
Click Add Exception.... The Add Security Exception dialog will appear.
Click Get Certificate.
Read the text describing the problems with this site.
Click Confirm Security Exception if you want to trust the site.


Does anyone know who to do this via group policy?


Thanks

Hi!
I have tried to control Firefox via GPO, but i never found a solution.. The one ADM file i managed to import to GPO, had lots of settings, but they never applyed! I don't think that FF will release one. Just wanted to share my experience, since i used a lot of time on it.:)

Good luck!

There is an edition of Firefox which has been created to allow you to use Group Policy to lock it down / configure it.

You can download it and ADM templates from here:-

I've used this for several years and is the best way I have found to apply Group Policy to Firefox.

Drashiel, this is what i have done, so it works on chrome, IE etc... but Firefox has an additional self signed alert.

scriven_j, users already have firefox installed, so i dont fancy installing a separate version.

When users browse the website they get an option to add the URL to the exceptions list, when I add it the message is suppressed.

You'd think this info would be stored in the registry, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Any further ideas?

I'd use something like Process Monitor:-

Have it running, make the change and then you should be able to work out where it is stored.  Has to be a config file or registry entry....  If it's a registry entry you can add it to a policy if it's a file, then you would need to script something to roll it out automatically.
