- From our first call
- MSI packaging
- Better pref management
- Addon Security - Permission based Addon / Plugin installation
- Better Addon fingerprinting - Our employees install lots of addons (One of them had 102 Addons..!!) and some of them have lots of memory leaks . Which increases Firefox freeze and slower overall performance. Can we have some info about Addon and its requirements ? Like Some addon demand more memory and processor then others. (Like Bittorrent addon)
- Bundling Plugins with FF. (Like Adobe Reader and Flash Plugin). It will reduce our IT task significantly.
- Easier to setup internal addon server in the company
- Cache updates and deploy from one internal server
- easy rollout/mass install of addons - some form of 'metapackage.xpi'
- Does mdc:Multiple Item Packaging cover this?
- blacklist/whitelisting extensions
- plugin finder service server
- Document how to prevent updates
- Group Policies
- Mission Control
- Better documentation of distribution rights for enterprise
- cross domain security (trusted intranet?)
- allow capability.policy APIs to be managed via mission control
- plist - Mac OS X policy????
- Bind autoconfig file directly to executable
- Support http basic authentication with live bookmarks; for secure internal rss feeds...
- Compatibility of Mozilla Firefox with Windows TSE : lower memory usage for each TSE user and possibility to do a global installation/uninstallation of XPI plugins instead of a local installation for each TSE user account (global installation doesn't work, need to do a local installation and then to move local XPI folder towards C:\Program Files\Firefox\extensions).
- Disable new Firefox 8 addon controls and checks: 1) After updating Firefox a window appears and users can enable-disable addons 2) IT can't install addons without user interaction. For company users that's confusing (they don't know about addons), and we don't want they can disable important company extensions.
