As Firefox still is pretty vaguely suppored in an enterprise environment, it is handy to install AdBlockPlus for all users when setting up the Default User profile.

This post over in the AdBlockPlus FAQ describes the process a little more indepth, but the barebones of it is:

  1. Download & Extract current AdBlockPlus.xpi file to a directory.
  2. Copy extracted files to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions\{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}\
  3. Edit adblockplus.js in the defaults/preferences subfolders to your liking
    • extensions.adblockplus.currentversion = “1.0”
    • extensions.adblockplus.patternsfile = “/tsc/adblockplus/patterns.ini”
  4. Ensure you have writeaccess and everyone has read access.
  5. Load Firefox and set your subscription.
