Profile Management

Firefox browser

For a seamless user experience, Profile Management synchronizes each user’s entire profile between the system it is installed on and the user store. As a result, Firefox users might experience slow logons or logoffs. The issue occurs because some files associated with Firefox can grow large.

We recommend you customize a logoff script to delete the following files and folders and thus to exclude them from synchronization:

  • Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\*\sessionstore.bak
  • AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*\sessionstore-backups

The general workflow is as follows:

  1. Write the logoff script using the Windows PowerShell or any other languages supported by the user computers. You can also use Windows Script Host (WSH)–supported languages and command files, including VBScript and Jscript.
  2. Copy the script to the Netlogon shared folder on the domain controller.
  3. In the Group Policy Management Console, associate the script to the user logoff event. For more information, see the Microsoft article.
