citrix receiver throws "ssl initialisation error 8" when launching citrix apps from firefox on Windows

more options

Hi all,

I recently switched over to mozilla firefox from google chrome as Google has now disabled NPAPI and thus allowing me the inability to launch citrix applications.

I have installed the latest version of firefox and have the latest version of citrix receiver. When i login to my citrix site and try to launch the citrix applications, nothing happens. When i manually launch the ica file, i receive the error. "Unable to connect to the Xenapp server. SSL initialisation error 8".

Please help as i need to get this up and running by this week.

Thanks.

Regards,

Ochen

Unfortunately we can't support plugins here. While still working (some of the time) in Firefox, NPAPI is officially considered legacy, and thus not supported, in Firefox.

I suggest working with Citrix or using Internet Explorer to run XenApps.
