I have some compatibility questions. We are running Firefox version 55.0.1. I am wondering the following:

Is this version supported on MS Server 2016? Is this version supported on Citrix XenApp 7.15 or is an update required? If an update is required is it okay to run it unsupported?

Since things keep changing at light-speed these days, do you have a single diagram that shows all of Firefox's main elements with all their names? For example, what your developers call the "navigation bar" is where the "location bar" is, followed by the the "search bar" , with several interspersed areas that include both Firefox standard icons and some add-ons' icons. (I don't know what those interspersed areas are called.) Your help info now refers to an awesome bar, which is apparently another name for a souped-up location/address/URL bar (per "Awesome Bar - Search your Firefox bookmarks, history and tabs from the address bar"). You've got a relatively new blue down-arrow control on the nav bar which provides a drop-down tray, whose name again I know not. There are also bookmark, add-on (now discouraged, I think), and additional bars that may be added, and perhaps others.

I don't want to become a developer. I just want to know how to use the customization features. If you don't already have it, a single diagram that shows the browser with all its optional parts would be *better* than a thousand words (in articles like "Awesome bar" and "Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars"), just to orient users (and hopefully keep them updated with changing versions and labels).

Thanks again fo your assistance.

I'm using AppArmor on my system (Gentoo, vanilla kernel 4.9). I discovered that every time Firefox starts is trying to get very powerful CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability. Does Firefox drop this capability before process handles external data/access internet? Does denying this capability have any negative consequences? EDIT: I just found out Firefox is using this capabilities to sandbox itself. Its great but default AppArmor policies like http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/pool/main/a/apparmor/apparmor-profiles_2.12-4_all.deb will deny CAP_SYS_ADMIN. Does Mozilla have any communication channels with major distributions or should i file bug reports myself?

I am having difficulty reconnecting to the internet after I arouse my laptop from sleep mode. Is there a helpful solution I have perhaps overlooked?

My browser is Firefox, the OS is Vista, and my connection to the internet is through a Virgin Mobile USB modem (model Huawei E!60E), which is one of three devices that are plugged into a four port USB hub, the other two devices being my wireless mouse transmitter and a USB memory stick. It works well enough for me, except for the annoying situation posed in my question. After shutting down my computer, on restart Virgin Mobile prompts me rather quickly to connect to the internet. This it then does, and quite swiftly. BUT, if I arouse my PC from sleep mode, not only does it not offer me a prompt (apparently it is not designed to do so, according to Virgin), but also it takes five or six painfully slow attempts to finally make internet connection again which eventually seems to occur as much due to sheer chance as to any identifiable reason. I achieve this by clicking on the connect button of the Virgin prompt screen (which I have to manually activate to appear), and then keep clicking 'connect' and 'cancel' repeatedly until finally success ensues. It would be so much simpler if the condition 'sleep mode' creates with the modem could be avoided, so that I could quickly reconnect again to the internet. The time I save by not shutting down, is more than lost by wasted time trying to reconnect to the internet after 'sleep' I have tried some of the predictable fixes -- namely uninstalling and re-installing Virgin, as well as fiddling around with settings related to "Allowing the computer to turn off this device", but without success. I also note that if I go to 'Computer', the entry that appears for Virgin Mobile describes it as "CD Drive (F:) Virgin Mobile" which, of course, it is not. Would it be possible for some kind person out there to offer me an explanation and some clues as to what best to do? Regards, kevindu

This is can be done through configuring a new profile but I can't find any implementation example on the web.

Somehow in my quest to add AOL to available "mailto" programs (which I belatedly found out how to do via an add-on), I think what I did was inadvertently create a bogus https address that shows up on the File>Email Link selection as file "IOSX6AAU," which I can not find anywhere in a search on my computer. When I click it, I am asked what application I want to use to open it. I've tried several hours of Help topics around setting or changing default programs, and it doesn't show up at all under Firefox menu's Options>Applications>mailto display. It doesn't affect the operation of my computer, but it is an annoying detail for which I have taken up an annoying quest to correct. If someone knows the answer to this riddle--and also, out of curiosity, how I managed to create this situation--I would be grateful to learn it.

How long would it take changes made to bookmarks on one device to sync and be reflected on another device? (same Mozilla account signed in on both devices)

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate

I set up a computer (dell windows 8 laptop) for my child. I have parental controls on, however have Facebook set as an allowed site.

When I try to access Facebook through Firefox on my child's account, it says it is not a trusted site and won't let me go further. I can, however, access Facebook (my child's account) just fine from my account (admin) on the computer.

These are the technical details provided: facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Saw some info on adding the additional root certificate, but it was not clear, and I did not fully understand.

All help appreciated!

Hello Is it possible in Fx to perform a mass update/modification on the URL addresss (e.g. Location Field) from about 800 of my bookmarks?

This is required as a site I use has changed their domain, so I need to modify the URL addresss by switching the domain name and change from http to https

from http://OLDdomain/xxx.. remaining of bookmark location address to https://NEWdomain/xxx.. remaining of bookmark location address

I am currently doing this manually by cut and paste in the Bookmark Manager (Show All Bookmarks window) but I am a bit tired after already doing 50 -- so wondering can this be automated in some way.

thankyou

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer").

I occasionally set my Windows clock back about two years, which used to just throw security errors on new pages. Now it also disables add-ons, which is obnoxious. Even after resetting the clock and restarting Firefox, they still can't be enabled unless extensions.legacy.enabled is set to true, which seems inadvisable.

Alternately, is there a number I can reset "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer" or another variable to that will re-enable extensions?

Thanks.
