    Mozilla is working on integrating Group Policy Support for Firefox running on Windows devices in the upcoming Firefox 60 release.

    Firefox 60 is the next Extended Support Release of the web browser which replaces Firefox ESR 52.x, the last official version of Firefox to support the old extensions system. Mozilla made Firefox 60 the next ESR target and not Firefox 59.

    According to the Firefox release schedule, Firefox 60 will be released on May 8, 2018.

    Mozilla Firefox supports an automatic configuration system for Firefox installations already using autoconfig files which works on any supported desktop platform.

    The new Policy Engine in Firefox reads data from the Registry created by Group Policy Objects and applies the policies if found to be valid.

    Development bug 1433136 documents the implementation progress and bug 1433173 work on the Policy Engine.
