Additional Comments
Please note - The Mozilla Firefox Quantum extension requires Impero Education Pro v6.3 or higher to function. 


Please note - The caption block listed above will close Mozilla Firefox down, including all open browser windows and tabs. As Firefox is currently not an Enterprise supported browser, it does not enjoy the same mechanics used to force install extensions and other settings. The caption block method will ensure that your users are being monitored and protected at all times while using Mozilla Firefox Quantum.
