Hi all

For security reasons, all new FF distributions are tested. When checking the distribution kit version 68.5.0esr (exe for x86 and x64) - the antivirus software "VirusTotal" detected Trojan.Inject.bcbj. FortiSandbox also scolded the distribution on x86 - saying that it deleted the file "% programfiles (x86)% \ google \ update \ 1.3.33.17 \ googlecrachhandler.exe" - its installation is undesirable in the ESR version.

Firefox Headless ---Screenshot not working for local HTML files

I'm unable to generate a screenshot of a local HTML file using Firefox's (v60.9.0) [headless mode][1]

Here's the command I'm using:

   "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P AJ --screenshot test.png "file:///C:/html_export.html"

I've tried with and without a profile and with different numbers of slashes after file. There are no errors in the command line - it just doesn't generate an output.

This command works fine when I substitute the file:// with an external website like:

   "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P AJ --screenshot test.png google.com

Could it be related to the [redirect bug mentioned here][2]?

Any help is appreciated! Perhaps theres a way to turn on output verbosity for --headless mode?

In the admin account and all user accoutns, I had Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

I created a new account on this computer. The VERY FIRST THING I did was go to Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

Guess what. It updated. It updated for all accounts.

I've easily lost four work days of time in the first 8 months of 2019 because of FIrefox updates. I need a way to stop updates. ALL updates. FOREVER. ALL UPDATES UNCONDITIONALLY BLOCKED. No leakage. I do not want them with a goat. I do not want them on a boat. I do not want them here or there. I do not want them anywhere. Is there any remaining ambiguity?

The ways described above don't cut it. So let's think unconventionally. Is there a file I can set the protections on, so Firefox's update balks and gives up? Can I create a file that has a name that Firefox update expects, and give that file some content or property so that Firefox update fails?

Where are my existing Questions etc from the "Firefox" account linked to this new system? It promised that they would be linked if I used the same email. Nothing is in my Profile - I want my list of previous Questions !!!

Should have send everyone email warning of this. New account creation page should have option to enter existing UserName & be sent an email, so you know what email was being used. Over the years there have been many. Also different emails for "Get Satisfaction" (Is that defunct?) & for sending questions to Developers and AddOn authors...

I used the address that I found searching old email for announcements sent by Firefox/Mozilla, so it SHOULD be the one I used "here."

Hi, I'm trying to get the en-GB dictionary to silently install (for network deployment) into firefox, I've got the dictionary xpi, it's file name is ID, and it's dropped into the extensions folder. Firefox detects it and after changing the autoenablescope setting, it is automatically enabled within FF. However it is not actually active and working as it should (no spellcheck or underlining). By installing through the normal add-ons page it does work, of course. But not when installed and activated the silent way.

Any help would be appreciated.

Etc. I try with safe modality, disable acceleration hardware. Change in about config the time of the script, turn false dom.ipc.processHangMonitor and dom.ipc.reportProcessHangs but nothing. The problem is only with some pages. Initially the error is Argh! The page crashs. When I restart in safe modality the error is on the top "the browser is slowed down from a page etc.". When I change things in about:config the error is about a script.

Someone can help me please? ThanksI am using 60.6.1esr (32 bit)

When I look at the memory dump files, I see that the faulting application is Firefox. Can somebody assist me with this file and offer some insight into how I can circumvent further disasters?

I do have the memory.dmp file. Can I share it?

Hi. I've been a loyal user to Mozilla Firefox for many years now. My concern is whenever I updated the browser from the past, It deletes my settings and extensions. That's whats keeping me from updating it for quite sometime now. So Im simply afraid to do it. For example. Part of my research entails an extension that downloads and converts from a video site. After an update this is removed. I have to re-install everytime. I so got tired of this. Its so annoying everytime it asks for updating, I have to opt out. Is there some way I can update this without messing up my settings? Has Mozilla already worked out a version without messing with my settings? Thank you for the help.

Greetings,

I'm setting a staging server on a VM, and issued a self-signed certificate.

When accessing https://staging.my.site firefox is giving me the following error:

" The owner of staging.my.site has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate. "

Clicking on Advanced shows:

" staging.my.site uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER "

There is no way to add an exception.

I went into Preferences-Certificates-View Certificates / Servers-Add Exception. Typed "https://staging.my.site", clicked on Get Certificate-Confirm Security Exception. But I got the same message

Restarted FF. Same message. Checked in SecurityPreloadState.txt but cannot see mention of "staging.my.site"

Kindly indicate me how to add an exception for my staging site.

Regards

Search for the addon on mozilla addons.

Locate UBlock Origin and click install. The popup is displayed to 'accept' permissions. Click accept and nothing happens. In the addons 'extensions' tab, the ublock entry row shows, but it never starts to download (and therefore never installs).

Tried to do it by saving the xpi to local and installing from there, but exactly same thing occurs.

Firefox 60.x ESR on Linux (slackware).

Is there anything else I might try please ?
