Agree with expert that there is no such stance or directive.

You should look out on advisory and guidance on securing web browser instead.

A more specific on hardening the Chrome is also published as guidance.

No, directives even implying that do not exist. That said, you obviously should be working to keep both pieces of software up to date. If someone told you that DHS created such a directive, I'd make them show it to you.
