Is there a way to disable the HSTS ( HTTP Strict Transport Security ) list built into Firefox or to allow exceptions?

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users. For … (read more)

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users.

For example, torproject.org is inaccessible on Firefox unless I am willing to trust DigiCert to never sign a fake certificate either by negligence or by court order of any country in witch they operate, thereby making every https: site ( not just torproject.org ) vulnerable to a MITM attack.

A user disabling CAs in the browser is not unreasonable given the ever growing list of CAs built into Firefox ( each one a potential point of failure ), the number of CAs that have been recently compromised and the very low standards required to obtain a certificate.

While I understand the desire to protect the average user who doesn't understand how certificates work and will click past warnings without reading them, this protection should not come at the expense of more security conscious users.

I would recommend an about:config setting that would allow the creation of exceptions by users who explicitly choose to do so.

So far the only kludge I have been able to come up with is to modify c:\program files\mozilla firefox\xul.dll with a hex editor and replace the sites on the list ( this is far from an ideal solution ).

Hello I am running Mozilla Firefox 17.0.1 on win xp pro It seems updating to ver 17 has stopped my ad-on-manager from doing anything other than loading, have tried click on extensions and other tabs, can see current installed plugins only but search for any just keeps spinning.

Along with this Download manager dos not pop up in a separate window and is blank when or after trying to download something. Tried changing download folder - no luck at all so cant even downgrade my version of firefox.

Any help would be appreciated

we have firefox esr version which we use in kiosk mode. we want to disable navigation bar but should be able to open multiple tabs and access them.

Now problem is : once i enable tabs and navbar is hidden. then we are not able to access next/previous tabs. key shortcut (Ctrl+tab or Ctrl+shift+tab) doesn't work. so we can not see another tab.

once i show navbar/tabs then address bar/search bar is also visible which we don't want.

Our requirement is to see multiple tabs with no address/search bar. Please provide help on how we can go to solve this.

Thanks

On startup Firefox says "couldn't load XPCOM"

My desktop is running Windows 8, which recently crashed. Since then, every time I start up, Firefox 17.1 (which is in the startuo folder) does not load, but brings up an error window saying (Couldn't load XPCOM). Dismissing the window then allows me to start Firefox myself. I have uninstalled Firefox (but not the personal stuff), downloaded a new copy of Firefox 17.1 and re-installed.... same thing happens.

Just to clarify ..... this only happens once, following the initial boot up of the desktop. I dismiss the error window and all is well after that.

Any bright ideas please?

What is XPCOM referring to? A missing dll file? can I find this file elsewhere and move it to the correct location?

Many regards.

Ever since Firefox updated to 17.0.1, the flash and silverlight plugins just disappeared. I tried to clean installing the flash player, it did not work. I tried clean installing an earlier version of flash player, that did not work either. The plugin manager is less than useless as it says the plugin has been successfully installed yet I cannot use Netflix nor any flash video. I did all of the above once again with all plugins and addons disabled, and still nothing happened.


This is getting really frustrating and I am in fact contemplating moving to chrome after the string of crappy, forced updates mozilla has shoved down my throat... PLEASE HELP!
