Issues managing Firefox proxy via GPO

Hello

I am trying to manage Firefox proxies via GPO using this procedure. This is a Server 2012r2 environment.

For some reason it works the first time the user logs in ... but not thereafter !

I'm really stumped... no error logged in event log... just not working :(

The default for Firefox is to use the system's settings for internet connections so I assume you don't want to set a proxy for all internet access?
And, did you set the GPO to run the firefox_startup.vbs every time they login?  You may need to.

That's indeed the case... but we might revert this policy...

Yes - is there any way to make sure it actually runs ?
