Hello Mastodon!

This is the official account for the Firefox Profilemaker at ffprofile.com.

We just changed the name of the default profile to "All Options".

This should end the confusion about "Default" vs. "Private browsing only" profiles.

The support for generating enterprise policies is now implemented.

At the moment there is one setting (disable searching for updates) that is only supported with enterprise policies implemented, but other enterprise policy features will follow.

Using enterprise policies may even be preferable, as they automatically load the latest versions of addons and reset changed preferences.

Tell us, if you find bugs in this new feature.

An idea for a new export format: Using Mozilla enterprise policies instead of prefs.js.

github.com/allo-/firefox-profi

Advantages:
- Some policies are not available as settings
- Can be installed before creating a profile
- Better addon installation

Disadvantages:
- Settings are system-wide defaults and not per profile.

Does anyone know, if is privacy relevant, when you do not actively use it?

We reorganized the categories:
- "Firefox Tracking" was renamed to "Browser Features", what is a bit more neutral.
- "Addon Tracking" was merged into the Addons section

In addition, the option now sets the mode to "5" (explicit opt-out) again, after we set it to "0" (off) until Firefox 68esr is the new extended support release, see github.com/allo-/firefox-profi.
