PolicyPak for Mozilla Firefox Mozilla Firefox Icon

You’ve got Firefox and a large amount of users.
How do you set up important key settings? Like these and many others:

  • Certificates management
  • Update behavior
  • Encryption settings
  • Home page
  • Javascript behavior
  • Privacy settings

PolicyPak manages actual, unchanged, real and genuine Firefox.

Our solution isn’t a mere “ADM” template, it’s a true Group Policy extension, with powerful management and lockdown capabilities. PolicyPak can deliver, lockdown and revoke Firefox settings – the way you need to using Group Policy. Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and mimics the user interface of the Firefox application itself.

Manage settings to actual, unchanged, real and genuine Firefox.

Firefox itself has no native Group Policy support with ADM or ADMX files to control these key settings, what are you going to do? It’s true there are third party companies like Frontmotion which will repackage, modify and “re-sell” Firefox – each and every time an update is created. It’s also true they provide some ADM support with this modified software.

But there’s a better way – a much better way.

When you use PolicyPak and our Pre-configured PolicyPak for Firefox, you get to use the actual, unchanged real and genuine Firefox. You’re NOT using a re-packaged Firefox.

Full Group Policy lockdown and enforcement is available right now for all versions (current and future) of Firefox.It’s a better way to manage Firefox in your enterprise. Watch this video to see exactly how it’s done:
