Description

a month ago

I'm going to use one bug to try to collect all the preference requests we have gotten so it's easier to check them in. Here are the first couple.

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/issues/366

gfx.webrender.all

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/issues/338

browser.tabs.warnOnClose

I'll also dupe other bugs to this.

Some of these might get converted to policy in the future, but for now they will be prefs.

I'd advise against adding a pref for gfx.webrender.all. The feature is not finished yet and the WebRender team has a detailed rollout depending on OS/version/hardware. I don't think it's something that an end user will choose wisely, specially if the person disable it and forget about it, but the feature will progress and continue to be improved.

Per the DOD STIG (And other places)

security.default_personal_cert
browser.search.update
dom.disable_window_move_resize
dom.disable_window_flip
dom.event.contextmenu.enabled

Related to https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fT2v8cOKRhCiLSUiqu7slfwL4fg2_MJektVLn58PVvc/edit, it would be nice to have a policy in the 68/ESR window for the following:

dom.keyboardevent.keypress.hack.use_legacy_keycode_and_charcode (which takes a hostname of an affected webapp)

app.update.auto (versus adding a new policy). this is so people can lock it on.

ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses - handy if web applications interfere and use alt.

// This is the bundled codec used for video chat in WebRTC
user_pref("media.gmp-gmpopenh264.enabled", false); // (hidden pref)
// disable widevine CDM (Content Decryption Module) [SETUP]
user_pref("media.gmp-widevinecdm.enabled", false);

This would be primarily for environments that don't want outside downloads.

We've had reports that people are disabling telemetry just to prevent the second tab on startup.

So we should add a pref for:

datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionPolicyBypassNotification
