Re: HOW TO BREAK XP SP2 POPUP BLOCKER: kick itin the nut !

Whilst I have not seen any (although I haven't looked, sorry) I doubt
there are.

What you can do though, as with any application, is distribute locked
registry keys and configuration files for it. Documentation to do with
using firefox with multiple profiles in mutliuser environments is also
available and this is a good source for the start of such a project.

I have seen this done successfully (and properly) in a production
environment so I know it is possible. :-)

Are their GPO objects for firefox. I would love to deploy firefox, but being
able to control the configuration via Group Policy is a must.

I'd speculate for several reasons.  I've actually heard it said in my
organization that people don't want to use Firefox, because certain
sites don't display properly or at all with it.  Even after being told
there is an extension to view a page in IE, they still use that argument...

Beautiful...how many more fun ones like these until people start to
migrate away from IE.....


If the stuff in the past hasn't already urged them to migrate, why should
a small thing like being able to beat the popup blocker make them move?

I'd put a smiley on that, but it's a serious question - you need to
understand
why they haven't *already* moved before you can even think about getting
them
to migrate.
