    firefoxadm

    Anybody using firefoxadm? I've got it working with the computer startup script but I carn't get the user/login part to work. I only want to set the default download location. I'm using the latest firefoxadm with firefox 2.0.0.3.

    If it is an ADM, can you not import it into the GPO itself?

    I've done that. I set it up as suggested. I don't understand the the machine part is working but not the user settings.

    Re: firefoxadm

    there is something silly like a block policy inheritence/force policy stopping you, also are there 2 sepereate GPOs for users and one for machines?
    as you will need to set the user one in the OU that controls the students not the machines

    I've got two two gpo's setup. One for the machines and one for the users. It's just a test network at the moment. I've got them setup just as you said.

    Have you redirected the APPDATA if you have mandatory profiles, as the lack of right access can play up on some programs, no sure why, but it it could be worth a shot
