Steps to reproduce:

  • Install the Firefox ADMX templated
  • Browse to the extensions options for Firefox
  • Configured "Extensions to uninstall" with a * for the value

Actual results:

Nothing (kind of expected)

Expected results:

  • We use this currently with Google Chrome's GPO settings.
  • We need to block/blacklist all extensions except for what we want to allow and/or force install.
  • Using a * is a easy way to do this if it works, but it does not work, nor is the naming or GPO options really geared towards that.
  • There is no "whitelist" settings for permitted extensions

This is a first pass. It needs more tests and I'm investigating emulating Chrome's URL blocking as well.
