I have users in our environment using IE, Chrome and Firefox. The company wants me to manage settings across all three platform uniformly or as close as i can get. IE is easy, but Firefox, sheesh what a nightmare. Here is what i need to do:
Manage allowed cookies
Manage allowed pop ups
Manage homepage (lock it)
Three fairly simple things. I need to add trusted sites as well but these are the three basics. I have used something called cck wizard located here:
It works great, I can change all of those settings and then some. One issue, it outputs an XPI file that i cant seem to deploy cleanly. I can get it so that GPMC pushes the file to the users default profile extensions directory for firefox, but they get a big scary prompt to install it and i know people will freak out. So, I would like to deploy this XPI silently to about 800 people in the domain.
Has anyone had experience with this and have any good suggestions? There is also a product called policypak that looks great but at $2500 minimum ill tell people to click on the big scary message.
One last thing, the different version of firefox may come into play here as well, I am testing this on 25, but i think a lot of our people are on 10.
Thanks as always in advance geniuses.
