What is importenterpriseroots?

The explanation from mozilla support community:

This could mean that you have the security to act as an intermediary and inject its root certificate to intercept secure connections without getting certificate errors in Firefox.

In Firefox 63 and later, you can check the about:policies#active page to see if the policy is active.

You can check the Mozilla and Firefox entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and also in HKEY_CURRENT_USER using the Windows Registry Editor to see if the GPO policy rule is active.


The reason:

You will receive this notification when other software makes changes to Firefox using a policy.

This can be done through the Windows registry or through the policy.json file in the distribution folder in the Firefox program folder.

Security software uses it to hook up your Firefox Internet connection so that it can monitor your Internet traffic and may warn you or even block you from accessing untrusted websites.
