Applies To

Browsium Client 4.5+

Summary

If the current auto-enablement does not work in your environment you can use Group Policy to force the installation and enablement of the various extensions utilized by the Browsium Client.

Details

Microsoft Internet Explorer 11

The Browsium Client’s extension auto-enablement generally works without issue for Internet Explorer 11 but you can manage it manually by following the steps below:

  1. Locate the GUID for the IE11 extension. This should be under ‘More Information’ when you left click the extension under View Add-ons in IE11. (It should be {B3A6DA95-9243-48E9-AF2E-52F4FF155B9D})
  2. Create a REG_SZ with the GUID/CLSID as it’s name in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ext\CLSID\
  3. Assign the REG_SZ a value of 1 to force enablement and prevent end users from disabling it.

Microsoft Edge (Chromium)

Microsoft provides Group Policy templates that allow you to force installation of extensions based on a provided list of extension IDs and sources.

  1. Download the Edge (Chromium) Group Policy templates if you do not already have them imported – (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/business/download – You will need to list a version/build before the “Get Policy” link will become enabled.)
  2. Locate the ExtensionInstallForceList policy, configure it and add the extension ID jkaohmnlkgicfmdmohpdmhpgeloddnpf;http://crx.browsium.com/browsium-chrome-4.8.6.xml.

Google Chrome

Google provides Group Policy templates for Chrome that allow you to force installation of extensions based on a provided list of extension IDs.

  1. Download the Chrome Group Policy templates if you do not already have them imported – (http://dl.google.com/dl/edgedl/chrome/policy/policy_templates.zip)
  2. Locate the ExtensionInstallForceList policy, configure it and add the extension ID jkaohmnlkgicfmdmohpdmhpgeloddnpf.

Mozilla Firefox

Firefox has recently changed how extensions are enabled and now requires manual user input. Browsium now only supports using the Firefox ESR branch to ensure compatibility with Browsium Client’s auto-enablement.
