Requesting help to remove the "Your browser is being managed by your organization." message in Firefox settings. I've tried the solutions found in help about the ImportEnterpriseRoots certificates settings in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies but there is no Firefox folder there. I searched all through the registry and did not find that specific entry. In Firefox about:settings, I have the certificates policy ImportEnterpriseRoots set to True but as I said, it is not in my registry on Windows 10. I tried Refresh Firefox and that also did not help. I have uBlock Origin Extension that may be doing this but I don't know where if it is. I tried disabling uBlock and it did not remove the issue. Any other suggestions?

Yes, you can remove this policies.json file if you do not have (security) software that wants to inject itself in your internet connection and replaces the website certificate with a generated certificate. Your System Details shows standard Windows software, so maybe you had other security software in the past and this is a leftover ?

Go to the folder where the firefox.exe is located and find the distribution folder. Does it contain the policies.json file?

PS. Did you search also HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies in the registry?

I do have the policies.json file and it contains the setting for ImportEnterpriseRoots set to true.

I did search the HKCU\SOFTWARE\Policies btw and it was not there.

Should I delete the policies.json file?
