Hi,

I am trying to configure PKI based authentication and encryption system in my organization using Hardware token. I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Recently i got a problem related to push notifications on Firefox, I've already subscribed (or allowed) to notification permission on some websites like Twitter, Gmail but I don't receive any notification when I closed their tabs . It's working fine if the tab of particular website is loaded on Firefox but once I closed it I don't get any notification especially from those websites on which I allowed the notification permission.

Some people suggested me to use chromium or other browsers to get this behavior but I don't want to replace Firefox with any other browser because their dev tools are better than what others are suggesting to me.

Firefox version: 76.0.1 OS: Manjaro with I3gaps window manager Script (or app) for display the notification : Dunst

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Just before I got the message We've upgraded Firefox in the background, causing me to have to close and reopen Firefox, Firefox , which I use to get mail from Outlook over my objections, dumped into the folder I had open at the time a folder called 'Mail'. Its contents are a huge number of files with the extension js, 25Mb worth. I have put this in the trash. But before I knew it was there I backed up my files on a second laptop. There the folder and its contents do not respond to -- do not allow-- the command to put in trash. The file names are grey so that they cannot even be selected to trash them. How do I get rid of this stuff? If I don't get rid of it, I daren't back up the files of that computer onto mine because I'd get it all back. So there is some urgency to the question. Sample file listed: Mail - Robert Thomas - Outlook_files/profilephotopicker_without-react_0497945b6204f57b88e6.js

CentOS Linux finally upgraded FF 68esr to FF 82esr. Of course this had to break something. For years I have had a bookmark to "about:config?filter=signon.rememberSignoabout:config?filter=signon.rememberSignons" This allowed me to easily toggle on or off the prompt for my master password when I browsed a site for which I had stored credentials. This bookmark no longer works. It takes me to the generic about:config page but does not fill in the setting which I am looking for. Is there a way to fix this?

I used to have some sort of addon or other feature which allowed me to only unlock my saved credentials when I wanted to logon to a site. When that broke or went away I found the about:config setting and created a bookmark to it. Being prompted to unlock my stored credentials every time I hit a site for which I have credentials is very annoying. Leaving my credentials file unlocked is a security concern.

Any advice would be appreciated.

TIA,

Ken

WebAssembly console messages are all the same (undefined) instead of specific as they were in earlier versions

VERSION: OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS OS type: 64-bit Firefox: 83.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical -1.0

ISSUE: All of the WebAssembly / Wasm error messages I receive in the FF console give a generic response instead of specific messages (like previous versions offered).

I recorded some of the previous error messages in content I was creating for others which explained how to resolve those error messages.

This is an example of what I used to see in the console.

BEFORE:


Firefox 70.0.1 CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 824: popping value from empty stack

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 47: initializer expression must reference a global immutable import

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) LinkError: imported Memory with incompatible size


Now, when I do the same things that would trigger those errors, the message I get is vague and not specific at all.

AFTER:


Firefox 83 Uncaught (in promise) Error: undefined


This makes it much more difficult to debug my Wasm in the browser and halts me from sharing my findings with others.

I did look in the about:config settings (in case they added a flag) and tried switching

javascript.options.wasm.verbose from ‘false’ to ‘true’

but that was not a solution.

Setting that flag to true only gave more references to the phases of the compilations but did not give me back the error reporting I used to see for Wasm.

I need to know how to enable the actual error messages again for Wasm or understand why the helpful messages were changed into a generic message. I’m hoping that it just an accident they are not displaying.

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

Is there a way to remove the sponsored link from the address bar drop down? Yesterday a link from a company that is run by terrorists showed up in the list. Shift+Del does not remove it. I understand Mozilla needs to get money somehow, but this is offensive. The link is for Ebay and it has the word sponsored next to it. Since the address bar drop down disappears when I hit any key, it is impossible to screenshot.

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

I'm trying to use a custom start page on new tabs opening (not happy that I have to use an extension for such basic functionality btw) but my service worker does not seem to activate or used when opening. Opening a new tab takes multiple seconds.

Navigating to the site (I have my start page hosted on AWS) on an existing tab is instantaneous, as is refreshing this page once the tab is loaded. So what gives? As far as I can tell Firefox doesn't install service workers on a per-tab basis, so there should be no issue here.

I use a couple of different browsers, Firefox and Brave. I have several profiles set up in Firefox depending on specific sites or groups of sites that I can open individually or together simultaneously. One of these I set up for a recipe management site I use https://recipesage.com. I set up a profile for recipesage and then go to the site, log in and save that page as the default. I then set up a .desktop script in my ~/.local/share/applications folder (I use Ubuntu as my OS of choice) to open that profile along with an image for recipe sage so I can save the "application" to my launcher separate from the regular Firefox icon. It worked fine that way for years until just recently. it no longer works. I deleted and recreated the profile, open it, set the default page, close firefox and restart it and it just spins, never loads the page. If I set the default to the default firefox page and then go to the site manually it works but not if I save it as the default. I have had to switch to using Brave instead which is fine but kind of sad that I can't use Firefox any longer. Any ideas why it all of a sudden broke?
