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.

I'm viewing a webpage that has several links. When printing the webpage to pdf using Firefox, the links magically display their full URLs, blocking the contents of the page. How can this be prevented? This does not happen when using MS Edge. Please see the attached screenshot. The top image is from a pdf printed using Firefox, and the bottom is from a pdf printed using MS Edge. 91.8.0esr (64-bit)

In the location bar (aka url bar aka address bar), the base domain name ("example.com") is displayed as normal text, whereas everything else in the url is displayed in gray. For example, if the displayed url is https://foo.example.com/bar, the "https://foo." and "/bar" are in gray.

Is it possible to get the whole url displayed as normal text, i.e., black, and avoid this "graying out" of some of it?

In my searches so far, I've found various other customizations for the location bar via userChrome.css, but not this one. Any help appreciated.

I'm using firefox 91.8.0esr (64-bit) as currently packaged for centos7 (x86_64), though presumably this is not system-dependent.

There is a certificate for an internal website that FireFox is saying is not valid/secure and it makes you add an exception. However, if you use IE, Edge or Chrome it loads fine with the valid CA Certificate. I've cleared all data (cache/etc...) and it hasn't fixed it. Hopefully someone has a fix for this?

Getting "SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER" for the certificate and its saying:

   Peer’s Certificate issuer is not recognized.
   HTTP Strict Transport Security: false
   HTTP Public Key Pinning: false

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!
