Hello all,

We must use a third party application which can only be installed in user home directory. We'd like to create a GPO to manage user settings, and configure a handler for this application.

Is it possible to use an environnement variable (for example %LOCALAPPDATA%) in the path of a handler ?

Thank you.

I am using Firefox ESR 102.2.0 version which I updated yesterday. Now when I try to login to my account on "https://myaccount.hdfclife.com/login", the captcha is covered and I can not read it. See the attached file.

It was working fine in the previous esr release 102.1.0. I have tested it with a new profile and captcha is visible in 102.2.0 version.

My query is about the cause of this issue and how can I fix it. I have checked and found that this issue does not appear on other websites. If there is an issue with the profile it should be with other websites which is not the case.

Please help

Hello,

Applying Preferences & Extension Management GPO's will bug certain GUI settings. The three examples I have are HTTPS-Only Mode & Forms and Autofill within about:preferences, and Enable USB Devices within about:debugging.

When HTTPS-Only Mode is set to "Don't Enable HTTPS-Only Mode" and locked via Preferences GPO, Users can continue to toggle between the settings. Forms and Autofill settings will not populate within about:preferences if address and credit card formfill values are false and locked via Preferences GPO. However, when the same GPO is deployed from Active Directory, Forms and Autofill settings will populate with address available for User toggle. Key, the values within about:config reflect what is set via GPO, and do not change among toggle or User intervention.

When locking down Enable USB Devices within about:debugging by blocking the extension install via Extension Management GPO, Users can continue to toggle the button after the policy applied. Although, just as previously mentioned, the extension does not get installed and seems the policy intervenes.

My questions being, are these simply GUI bugs since the values respect group policy? Are there other methods to lock down these settings?

I understand this is quite a bit of information and appreciate your help and time!

Preferences JSON - { "extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available": {

   "Value": false,
   "Status": "locked"
 },

"extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled": {

   "Value": false,
   "Status": "locked"
 },
 "browser.formfill.enable": {
   "Value": false,
   "Status": "locked"
 },
 "extensions.formautofill.addresses.enabled": {
    "Value": false,
    "Status": "locked"
 }

}

Extension Management JSON - { "adb@mozilla.org": { "installation_mode": "blocked" } }

Steps:

  • Open Linux server via VNC
  • Open Firefox
  • Search the term "test"

Issue:

  • The google result page doesn't fit into the window and has a horizontal scrollbar to see content on the right hand side

Note: I need my website to fit into browser properly at 100%(default) zoom itself for the purpose of automation because changing zoom level via selenium automation to press ctrl and minus 3 times causes unexpected behavior like even though value is filled in a textbox, it doesn't get sent in the API request payload. (Python 3.4.3, Selenium 3.12.0, GeckoDriver 0.31.0)

Versions:

  • Ubuntu 14.04.6
  • Firefox 91.13.0ESR
  • VNC: Tight VNC Viewer 2.8.63 OR Real VNC Viewer 6.22.515

Hi, trying to setup local update server for Firefox, and I hit on a problem:

Was testing on my PC which has for multiple reasons "normal" Firefox and get to the point where updates from local server are working, but then tried to test the PC where the ESR version is installed - was expecting the update will not be found, and I would download the MAR files for ESR, edit the update.xml.... but the ESR Firefox found and downloaded the "normal" update, but of course could not install it.

Is there a way to set in XML file that one update is only for ESR and another for Rapid release version of Firefox? How to setup local update server for both channels simultaneously?

Another minor question - is there a simple way how to get buildID for/from downloaded prebuild MAR file? Without it the in the XML file update process don't work correctly and only place I found it so far is in source code for that build.

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm trying to deploy Firefox with several languages.

I followed the guide on [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/deploying-firefox-language-packs].

Everything work fine until I set up ExtensionSettings policy. This policy hide and block languages menu.

Im working on a deployment package for Mozilla Firefox 106.0.1 when launching Firefox on a brand new user it automatically creates a shortuct for private browsing. Im looking for a way to disable this as the package im creating is an appv package and this new shortcut installs in users profile, so it won't be uninstalled. I have searched google but cant find any hits.

We have the following for customization: Application directory\defaults\pref: localsettings.js with these settings: pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // only needed if you do not want to obscure the content with ROT-13 pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

Application directory\mozilla.cfg with these settings: // Don't show WhatsNew on first run after every update pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone","ignore");

// Don't show 'know your rights' on first run pref("browser.rights.3.shown", true);

// Disable Policy Notice on First Run pref("toolkit.telemetry.reportingpolicy.firstRun", false);

// Disable checkDefaultBrowser lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);

Firefox 102 with IBM Webseal PKI logon

Forgive me if I am not describing this correctly but really need help, if you ask me questions back, I will be happy to answer once I find that answer to your question. The issue we are experiencing is not my area of expertiese but no one in my org can find an answer so here I am.

We have not migrated our enterprise above Firefox ESR 91.x as of yet, we have some internal sites that use IBM Webseal to provide SSO and some of that functionality is broken in version 102.x and above. There are three options on the frontend page to use RSA token, PKI logon and username/password: each one a separate choice for the end user experience. RSA and Username/password work without issue but PKI logon does not, once you click on the logon button it is supposed to grab the certificate from your PKI card and use it to logon to the web application, but it does not seem to complete this process instead it proceeds to another page almost immediately that reads Error An attempt to authenticate with a client certificate failed. A valid client certificate is required to make this connection. Click here to return to the authentication page. DPWWA1124W A client certificate could not be authenticated. Our web developers have opened a ticket with IBM and from what I was told after troubleshooting and traffic capture, they never see the certificate make it to the backend for authentication and it is a Firefox issue because Google and MS Edge work just fine. Because of this IBM closed the case.

Has anyone experienced this issue and know of a fix or is there any suggestions as to what we can look for as an attempt to fix this issue? What has changed between version 91.x to 102.x ESR (we have tried the RRs and it is an issue there also)? Is this a bug in Firefox?

Windows 10: Automatic updates by GPO fails

Hi,

i'm running Firefox on +70 Windows 10 PCs in three labs in a university. I've applied a computer configuration GPO with AppAutoUpdate enabled, BackgroundAppUpdate enabled and DisableAppUpdate disabled to my PCs, but it looks like i don't get automatic updates. In my labs i see some workstations have Firefox 108.0.1, but most workstations still have Firefox 107.0.1...

As my users can switch between workstations and labs, this leads to the annoying 'older version' message box when a user worked on a PC which already got the update and later uses another PC which didn't get the update. The users are also forced to create a 'new' profile then, which is quite problematic because of the size of the roaming profiles.

Any hints?

We have configured Windows Single Sign On to Microsoft 365 in Firefox 102.6.0esr (64-Bit).

We have embedded a Video from the new Microsoft Stream on SharePoint Online into a SharePoint 2019 onpremise Site via the provided iFrame. Here every user gets an endless Login Loop (see Screenshot).

If you open the deeplink to the video, Single Sign On works perfectly.

And this also works in Microsoft Edge, why the Microsoft support is not willing to analyse this issue further.

Do you have any ideas how to narrow down the problem?

Hello,

I am managing Firefox for a very large organization. We have several extension that we deploy using registry keys and we don't allow users to install additional addons. However, since version 102.3 I noticed some extensions that are present on the machine as .xpi files, but should not install unless a specific application is also present, are also being activated. They are enabled in the add-on manager, the information is present in the "extensions.json" and "extension-preferences.json" files. This should not happen. Is there any way to prevent the activation of these files?

Thank you!

I work for the local County and we recently got a new content provider that allows for SSL Inspection (Barracuda 410) but it requires a certificate to be installed on every device to work. I am aware of Edge having a way to create a custom installer that would allow us to preinstall the proper certificate, but was wondering if Firefox had the same thing. I am also needing to know that if we push out the version of Firefox with the certificate preinstalled, would it auto import our user's data from their current install of standard Firefox?

We have Firefox rapid-release (not ESR) deployed on Windows 10 across our Enterprise where users do not have local Administrator privileges.

Occasionally the rapid-release updates fail to be installed, with the updater requiring Admin privileges to execute. For example, today a user's Firefox 111.0.1 was asking for elevate to update to 112.0.

The IT team user accounts also are non-admin, but we have not run into this, and judging from the lack of support tickets on this I would say most of our users are not running into this either.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to avoid this, or troubleshoot further?
