Getting flags to update to Firefox 25.01, but there is nothing confirming that on the web site.


I keep getting a flag to update to Firefox25.01. I find nothing in the web site confirming this update. The problem started right after I enabled FIPS.

Firefox 25.0 HP Pavillion dv6, i5-2450M CPU, 16Gig RAM, 64-bit, no pen or touch display, Win 7 Ultimate/SP1, up to date as of 11/20/2013

you're always on the save side when you set firefox to update automatically under options > advanced > update or manually initiate a check for updates in firefox > help > about firefox.

Is there a real requirement to enable FIPS mode because doing that can cause a lot of issues with servers that aren't supporting FIPS (i.e use ciphers that are not enabled in FIPS mode)?

Unfortunately the only way to leave FIPS mode is to delete the signons.sqlite and key3.db file and you lose all saved passwords, so make a note of them.
