We have configured Windows Single Sign On to Microsoft 365 in Firefox 102.6.0esr (64-Bit).

We have embedded a Video from the new Microsoft Stream on SharePoint Online into a SharePoint 2019 onpremise Site via the provided iFrame. Here every user gets an endless Login Loop (see Screenshot).

If you open the deeplink to the video, Single Sign On works perfectly.

And this also works in Microsoft Edge, why the Microsoft support is not willing to analyse this issue further.

Do you have any ideas how to narrow down the problem?

Windows 10: Automatic updates by GPO fails

Hi,

i'm running Firefox on +70 Windows 10 PCs in three labs in a university. I've applied a computer configuration GPO with AppAutoUpdate enabled, BackgroundAppUpdate enabled and DisableAppUpdate disabled to my PCs, but it looks like i don't get automatic updates. In my labs i see some workstations have Firefox 108.0.1, but most workstations still have Firefox 107.0.1...

As my users can switch between workstations and labs, this leads to the annoying 'older version' message box when a user worked on a PC which already got the update and later uses another PC which didn't get the update. The users are also forced to create a 'new' profile then, which is quite problematic because of the size of the roaming profiles.

Any hints?

Hi all,

we are using Mozilla Firefox ESR in our enterprise environment.

Is there a documentation which URL's Firefox uses when (Mozilla Maintenance Service) when it tries to update his version ?

We have tried with following URL's on our Firewall:

aus.mozilla.org aus2.mozilla.org aus3.mozilla.org aus4.mozilla.org aus5.mozilla.org download.cdn.mozilla.net archive.mozilla.org ftp.mozilla.org

It is finding the new version, but when trying to download the update it fails.

Thank you for any help on this case.

We have 50 workstations set up for certain jobs and the users roam as needed. Each workstation has two printers using different media. the printers are controlled by having two instances of Firefox with each having a user profile to use one printer or the other. In addition to printer settings we set a number of other profile settings such as silent printing etc.

Having a profile per user requires a great deal of setup work to allow different users to log in with authentication and to align the printers with the programs which will print to them.

A solution that would allow us to write a copy of a master profile to each new user via a program would be nearly perfect. Thank you,

I posted this previously and got zero response and the post is now archived. Hoping for better luck this time.

We have rolled Firefox ESR to all of our computers. On some of them the Maintenance Service is working correctly and installing updates with no user interaction. On other computers, users are getting a UAC prompt to enter admin credentials to install updates. I have tried various changes that I have found across the web from Deleting the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MozillaMaintenance\Security to uninstalling and re-installing the Maintenance Service. All of the users/computers have the same policies applied via Group Policy (Application Autoupdate: Enabled and Disable Update: Disabled) and are not local admins.

Im working on a deployment package for Mozilla Firefox 106.0.1 when launching Firefox on a brand new user it automatically creates a shortuct for private browsing. Im looking for a way to disable this as the package im creating is an appv package and this new shortcut installs in users profile, so it won't be uninstalled. I have searched google but cant find any hits.

We have the following for customization: Application directory\defaults\pref: localsettings.js with these settings: pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // only needed if you do not want to obscure the content with ROT-13 pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

Application directory\mozilla.cfg with these settings: // Don't show WhatsNew on first run after every update pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore");

// Don't show 'know your rights' on first run pref("browser.rights.3.shown", true);

// Disable Policy Notice on First Run pref("toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun", false);

// Disable checkDefaultBrowser lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);

Application directory\distribution\policies.json with the following settings: {

 "policies": {

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true } }

Hello,

I am managing Firefox for a very large organization. We have several extension that we deploy using registry keys and we don't allow users to install additional addons. However, since version 102.3 I noticed some extensions that are present on the machine as .xpi files, but should not install unless a specific application is also present, are also being activated. They are enabled in the add-on manager, the information is present in the "extensions.json" and "extension-preferences.json" files. This should not happen. Is there any way to prevent the activation of these files?

Thank you!

Hi, Background: a few months ago I had to redeploy the CA for a network I manage. I was able to do so and publish the new intermediate CA's cert via Active Directory. Since then, I've updated certs on webhosts with certs from the new CA. Whenever a user uses FF (version 91.12.0) to browse to a site with the newly signed cert, I get an error stating "sec_error_ocsp_old". I've been able to temporarily advise users to disable OCSP Validation in FF security settings, but I'd REALLY like to fix this.

Other browsers (Edge, Chrome, Opera) all load the sites without issue.

Using this the below article, I double checked the time settings on the CA, Webserver, and clients: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-time-errors-secure-websites

All the machines/VMs in question show the same time source, time, time zone, and sync interval.

I'm at a loss for what is happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Steps:

  • Open Linux server via VNC
  • Open Firefox
  • Search the term "test"

Issue:

  • The google result page doesn't fit into the window and has a horizontal scrollbar to see content on the right hand side

Note: I need my website to fit into browser properly at 100%(default) zoom itself for the purpose of automation because changing zoom level via selenium automation to press ctrl and minus 3 times causes unexpected behavior like even though value is filled in a textbox, it doesn't get sent in the API request payload. (Python 3.4.3, Selenium 3.12.0, GeckoDriver 0.31.0)

Versions:

  • Ubuntu 14.04.6
  • Firefox 91.13.0ESR
  • VNC: Tight VNC Viewer 2.8.63 OR Real VNC Viewer 6.22.515
