I've done everything possible to serve a pure https site. The player built in to the browser seems to break it. Example https://indyradio.info/zero/swr015/swr04-15/32sw0424_15.ogg In Google Chrome, the green bar still shows the site as secure. The only element other than the one file of mine is the mozilla html5 player. This example is served from an https only site with an A+ rating at qualys ssllabs, with HSTS and TLS_FALLBACK_SCSV https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=indyradio.info&s=162.220.218.70

just started this morning and it is annoying to the max. every site i go to has flash on it somewhere. i use linux. flash has no new update for linux. this is not my browsers decision to make. please tell me how to unblock the adobe flash addon permanently and then how to tell FF to stop checking this for me. my linux handles all my updates as needed including those for my browser. i don't need or want FF to second guess my settings or my chosen security level.

I don't know if this is a Firefox issue or a Wire issue. Just thought I should start here first.

When I click on links on Wire, for example, youtube links, Wire should normally open a new tab in Firefox redirecting to the link I've clicked on. The problem is that this expected behaviour only happens when Firefox is already launched and running on a window. If Firefox is not already launched then clicking on the link "apparently" does nothing, no matter how long I'm waiting for Firefox to launch. "Apparently", because when I try to launch Firefox myself after that, I get the message that Firefox is already running and that I have to close it or restart my system. Needless to say I can't launch Firefox and I have to reboot. I have a screenshot attached for more details.

Is it a Firefox issue or could it be a Wire issue? Nevertheless I'll be posting a similar post on Wire forums. Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

I'm running Ubuntu 14.4 Trusty Tahr on 32-bit System.

When you look at the KEY (all caps) like https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.5.3esr/ Other than showing you a signing key ID(s) & an email addy to search for public keys, what is the purpose of the KEY on the download pages?

Entering: $ gpg KEY, where the KEY file is in the current location shown in the terminal, gives info like:

D98F0353 2015-07-17 Mozilla Software Releases <release@mozilla.com> sub 4096R/5E9905DB 2015-07-17 [expires: 2017-07-16]

Only thing I can figure is the "KEY" file is to tell users which public key ID or email addy to search for, if you don't already have the devs' correct public signing key stored on your keyring?

That still doesn't help to verify the authenticity of any downloads, unless there are *.asc signature files for each specific file. Like here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.5.3esr/update/linux-x86_64/en-US/

There's a firefox update file that was signed by the devs, using one or more of their PGP signature keys. And a 2nd "signature file" - with .asc extension, that's used with GPG to verify the downloaded file's **authenticity.** NOTE: This has NOTHING to do with checksums!

Checksums don't verify that the file you're downloading wasn't tampered with after it was loaded on the server. Only that there were no read / write errors during download process.

The two files below were together. You need both to verify authenticity using gpg. firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar.asc

If I've already downloaded the mozilla devs' public keys & stored them on a keyring app, then I can verify the downloaded file. If you change dir to where the update file & the signature file (.asc) are stored, then you enter:

 $ gpg --verify firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar.asc firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar

If the signed downloaded file's signature matches the .asc file & also the correct, stored public key for the authors, it will say:

gpg: Signature made Tue 03 Oct 2017 05:22:45 PM CDT using RSA key ID 24C6F355 gpg: Good signature from "Mozilla Software Releases <release@mozilla.com>"

The FULL installer packages like firefox-52.5.3esr.linux-x86_64.sdk.tar.bz2 don't seem to have signature files available (with .asc). There's no way for users to manually verify full installer packages. Maybe they somehow do "self verification." It seems like firefox would have to contact a server - at some point to compare signature of the package being installed against a known good signature key.

Just reinstalled my pc, never used a sync from file I always do it that way.

1. download ff 2. login 3. synced

it fails at step 3, it just doesn't do anything at all, all I can see is my profile picture but nothing else, no bookmarks, no history, no addons, anything

I tried to sync on with my mobile, but there is literally nothing to sync.. I never used a backup file or anything

what should I do to get my addons and bookmarks back?

thanks

the above just happens too often and im getting crashes [sorry] doesn't cut it . your stay signed in works about as well as a screen door on a submarine. i can see an occasional check to sign in, but it is sad when i have to jump hoops just to do a quick check on my emails. i purposely wanted to get away from google chrome as it is too invasive . i want privacy and i dont expect my wife to know what she is probably getting as the next gift by looking at advertisement at right of screen . i would like firefox to work please correct these problems. your commitment to a open internet would be nice. even putting so much information under signing to get to a comment page is a little much, an email addy should be sufficient. Simple works best ,easy to track your own data and rectify any problems. The time storing , sorting and reading data that has nothing of relevance diminishes productive work load and execution.
