    Why not use a title check for Firefox?

    Or even better just use ranger to deny exe files running from the drive letter that your pen drives appear as.

    Other methods:
    -Don't use a transparent proxy (so user needs proxy IP info to browse)
    -Use software restrictions to block pupils running exe files from removable storage or their home area(Also a good idea to add the likes of .bat, .cmd, etc)
