I installed firefox20.0.1 under admin account, I was trying to make default settings and applying for all users, but non of the settings can be applied to users and users are still have permissions to change settings.

Does anyone knows how to create a default settings and blocking users from changing it on firefox? I ve been searching for while, there are few way to do it but only works on very old version of firefox. I cant find anyway to do it on latest version of firefox.

Or if there is anyway can do it on chrome?

Any hint please

Since I am not in a habit of making link only answers I suggest you read the following suport article: that explains in detail how to do it. There is enough a tool that does it for you… – Ramhound May 8 '13 at 16:29
Thanks for the info, but I tried those already, non of them works on latest version of firefox..... – USER May 8 '13 at 16:50
I just tried them and they work fine. Its also worth pointing out that Firefox 20 isn't the current version of Firefox. Would have been helpful to know you already tried those solutions. Even the reported bug that was against Firefox 15 was fixd and verified to work against Firefox 17. – Ramhound May 8 '13 at 17:21
Hi Ram, thanks for replay, I tried again, it works now, the reason that it could not work coz of encoding that .cfg file. the web says its not mandatory to encode the file, but looks like it must be done to make it working. if there is a way to block user access [options] it will be easier. thanks – USER May 8 '13 at 19:14
btw, about current version, I just downloaded it from firefox web, I thought it should be the latest release...maybe not. I don't know, I use chrome all the time but chrome can not setup it's own proxy...... – USER May 8 '13 at 19:26
