Hi,

I am in the process of repackaging firefox 3.2. Can anyone help me in disabling the "Advanced" Option under Tools-->Options--> as users should not be able to change the proxy settings and other options for security issues .

Thanks in advance

Best Regares
Ramesh

I think you'll find this article very helpful

Most of the settings you'll require are set in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\firefox.js"

I'd suggest bypassing 3.2 and going directly to 3.5. The packaging won't be that much different, mostly file changes rather than new ones. I've found in general that the previous version's package can be used as a template, updated with the changed files and deployed more or less as-is.

Hi Vbscab/Timmsie

Thanks for your reply. My sincere apologies VBscab the version which I am trying to repackage is 3.5 not 3.2.

Thanks Timmsie for the link. I have gone through the link http://ilias.ca/blog/2005/03/locking-mozilla-firefox-settings/ but for disabling the tabs nothing is specified. :)

I would request you all to provide any options if exist to disable Advanced (tab option) itself. We have used IE 6 and we had disabled some of the tabs like connections, Privacy, Security through group policies. Now our client wants to move to Mozilla for some reasons. So just like for IE 6 tabs, we wanted to disable some tabs like Advanced in Mozilla. I welcome your suggestions. I am sure it is possible through Group policies or some other way, but if anyone of you has done it I would request to share it.

Regards
Ramesh

As Timmsie already pointed out, FF menu changes are controlled by JavaScript. if you're not au fait with JS, perhaps your question would be better posted on Mozilla's FF forum. I'd be willing to bet, though, that somewhere on Mozilla's site, there'll be a ready-rolled script to do the job (or, at worst, a similar one).
