Firefox Enterprise includes several software solutions made by Mozilla for specific Enterprise needs. Together, these software solutions make up Firefox Enterprise.

Configuration JSON file “policies.json”

Even though we support GPO on Windows and plist on MacOS, you can still use a configuration file if it suits your needs (Linux machines?). Find-out more here about how you can deploy customizations using policies.json.
