undoing applied policies

    In case anyone else is struggling with this...

    After doing some testing with the GPO settings for firefox I was unable to then deactivate the policies on my machine even after removing my computer from the policy.

    I had to remove all of the 'lock' settings that were added to the bottom of the 'prefcalls.js' file that's located in %program files%\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\autoconfig

    There may be a more elegant way to fix this but the above worked for me.

      With the 0.4.* scripts, you could do this by adding the shutdown script to your group policy.  This rolls back changes made by the Computer Configuration settings (startup script/firefoxlock.adm).  Similarly use logoff script if implementing User Configuration settings.

      This functionality will change with the 0.5.*/0.6 development where I will implement a better rollback function in forthcoming developments.

      Hope that helps!
