Firefox GPO’d

Frontmotion Firefox CE (Community Edition) is a re-branded version of firefox.  The original binaries are used but some preferences and other items are altered.  In order to stay within Mozilla Firefox’s licensing, they had to change the icon and name.  Basically, Mozilla Firefox has been repackaged as an MSI and some changes made to allow Group Policy templates to be used.

Updates to FM FirefoxCE and the mozilla.adm are available at: http://www.frontmotion.com/FMFirefoxCE/index.htm

Basic GPO settings via the administrative template are set as follows:  Disable auto update, prompt for location to save downloads , disable check for default browser, & set the homepage.  These are locked settings and cannot be edited by the user.
