'Blocked Options'

Post by Ted Myers »

Hello, on opening FF Options I got a message as in my image. I am not attached to any organisation.
I thought it was uBlock Origin but still was visible after disabling and a reload of current page.
Any idea what the culprit is?

Or this link:
https://support.mozilla.org/da/questions/1236308
which includes details on how to refresh your FF installation.

The other thing to check is that you are on the latest version.

My FF is the latest version. Did as suggested in your link, nothing changed.

I hope someone else has a fix for you then as my only other idea would be to do a complete uninstall / reinstall but that seems a bit nuclear.

Did you check RegEdit to see if there is a key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla

If so, delete that key, then start Firefox again and see if the message has disappeared.
Regards,
Hans

I have just done as you suggested and it has cleared.
I have relooked at stuck's link and it was there also, but I missed it, possibly because part of it was in a foreign language.
thanks all.
