Hi Everyone,


We have been using Profile Manager to restrict access to what applications can be run by users. Our profile allows users to run things like Chrome and Firefox etc.


This has been working fine until we decided to upgrade Chrome & Firefox (ie v13 -> v19). Now users are unable to run Firefox & Chrome, I assume this is because the executables have now changed. So I updated the versions of Chrome & Firefox on the server and logged into Profile Manager to update the settings.


However, even after rebooting the server, starting and stopping Profile Manager and even upgrading from Lion Server to Mountain Lion, Profile Manager refuses to acknowlege that Chrome and Firefox have been upgraded. It still lists the outdated version numbers.


Any help would greatly be appreciated.
