This page is controlled by the startup.homepage_welcome_url pref. Most sysadmins want to disable this page, or set it to a different one. The browser already supports disabling it by setting this pref to blank, so these are two policies request that can be implemented as one.

We tested this on Nightly with JSON policy format and it is verified as fixed.

Using this policy, the first-run page can be set to a website or left blank by default.

It will also be tested with adm formats when ready.
Test cases and runs are here- https://testrail.stage.mozaws.net/index.php?/plans/view/8760
We retested this on beta builds with ADM and JSON policy formats and it is verified as fixed.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
