probleme firefox config cfg

more options

Hello,

We have a problem with version 78.0.2 ESR,

We apply a firefox configuration strategy with a cfg in the firefox folder & since the last firefox version opens with an error message "failure to read the configuration file. Please contact your system administrator."


with the version 68.10.0 ESR The message does not appear do you have an idea?

Attached screenshots

Chosen solution

This issue is that Services.perms.add no longer works.

You'll need to use:

     Services.perms.addFromPrincipal(
       Services.scriptSecurityManager.createContentPrincipalFromOrigin("http://sriglx"),
       "popup", 1
     );

There's no need do a newURL anymore.

I would suggest you look into using our policy code to do this. It's much easier.

HI aurelien.huteau

I've asked a Firefox developer to take a look!

Cheers!

Hi aurelien.huteau

The developer asked what the error if any is in the javascript console [1]

Cheers!

[1] You can open the Browser Console in one of two ways:

  1. from the menu: select "Browser Console" from the Web Developer submenu in the Firefox Menu (or Tools
  2. from the keyboard: press Ctrl+Shift+J (or Cmd+Shift+J on a Mac).

This means that you use an autoconfig.cfg file and that Firefox notices errors in this file. This autoconfig file is run a privileged JavaScript and error throw an exception.

Are there specific errors reported in the Browser Console related to this autoconfig.cfg file ?

(EDIT: noticed that Roland suggested the same while I was typing my response)
