I want to put Zscaler Root CA certificate for web access by terminal

Hi Team, I'm using the Zscaler in my network, when I use the Firefox, appear the error:

"Software is Preventing Firefox From Safely Connecting to This Site

www.googleadservices.com is most likely a safe site, but a secure connection could not be established. This issue is caused by Zscaler Root CA, which is either software on your computer or your network.

What can you do about it?

www.googleadservices.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely...." Picture 1

I have root certificate in path: /usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla$ Picture 2

I run the command for updates CA but it doesn't work: sudo update-ca-certificates

Errors keep popping up.

The certificate not appear in the Certificate manager > Authorities Picture 3

But if I open the firefox > Settings > Privacy & Security> Certifcates > View Certificates > Import And I import the certificate ZscalerRoot.crt and I mark the option "trust this CA to identify websites" the firefox works, and I can open the site without error message.

Picture 4

And the certificate appear in the manager certificate: Picture 5


How can I put the command terminal certificate, which I have on hundreds of machines?

Note: I need to put the certificate only for internet access.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

Forgive me if I am not describing this correctly but really need help, if you ask me questions back, I will be happy to answer once I find that answer to your question. The issue we are experiencing is not my area of expertiese but no one in my org can find an answer so here I am.

We have not migrated our enterprise above Firefox ESR 91.x as of yet, we have some internal sites that use IBM Webseal to provide SSO and some of that functionality is broken in version 102.x and above. There are three options on the frontend page to use RSA token, PKI logon and username/password: each one a separate choice for the end user experience. RSA and Username/password work without issue but PKI logon does not, once you click on the logon button it is supposed to grab the certificate from your PKI card and use it to logon to the web application, but it does not seem to complete this process instead it proceeds to another page almost immediately that reads Error An attempt to authenticate with a client certificate failed. A valid client certificate is required to make this connection. Click here to return to the authentication page. DPWWA1124W A client certificate could not be authenticated. Our web developers have opened a ticket with IBM and from what I was told after troubleshooting and traffic capture, they never see the certificate make it to the backend for authentication and it is a Firefox issue because Google and MS Edge work just fine. Because of this IBM closed the case.

Has anyone experienced this issue and know of a fix or is there any suggestions as to what we can look for as an attempt to fix this issue? What has changed between version 91.x to 102.x ESR (we have tried the RRs and it is an issue there also)? Is this a bug in Firefox?

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);

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

Nessus, Qualys, IBM Big Fix security scans constantly pick up firefox vulnerabilities. What we find is that either users have deleted the Firefox background update task or on servers, it never gets put onto the task scheduler. All other browsers have a channel update in the GPO files that ensure they are kept up to date and never show up in our scans. When will firefox put out similar channel GPOs and quit relying on the differently named task that we can't put into a group policy task scheduler, but constantly find firefox vulnerabilities from users that have deleted it so that group policy does not take effect.

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!
