Here is my issue, I'm running a windows server 2008 and I'm trying to deploy a firefox software installation to certain users. I created a group policy on Active directory and setup the Group Policy Object and for some reason, it does not seem to deplay firefox when I login to one of the users? can someone give me links or suggestion on what to try to solve this issue... Much appreciated.
