On my Mac I get Firefox notifications for YouTube, CNET, etc., but when I select the notification it will not launch the link in Firefox.

So what good is the notification if I can not access the link.

Why is this not working. Below is an example when I click the notification, it will not open in Firefox.

Comments?

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

I run Firefox standard (84.0.2) on my windows laptop (v10) and try to synchronize with my Mac desktop - OS X Version 10.11.6 with Firefox esr version 78.6.1. It worked in the past and I am not sure when the synch stopped. I have tried to look at the log in about:sync-log but am at loss to understand what all the code means. It does contain a lot of DEBUG ... Thanks for any suggestions!

AppAutoUpdate not available in local group policy editor

I abandoned my effort to control policies using a policies.json file, since the posted instructions do not work and the moderator who was helping me didn't have any additional suggestions. So I'm now trying to do this via the local group policy editor in Windows 10 Pro with Firefox ESR 78.6.1.

I obtained the admx/adml files for that version of Firefox and placed them in the appropriate location in Windows\Policy Definitions.

Now I get the full list of polices in Firefox about:policies#documentation. There is also a Mozilla>Firefox node in the group policy editor with many options. However, AppAutoUpdate is not among them, even though it appears in the documentation. The only thing relevant at all in the GPO editor is Mozilla>Firefox>Preferences>app.update.auto, which both the GPO and about:policies says is deprecated and not supported.

So what is the actual truth? Is there, or is there not really an AppAutoUpdate policy that we can actually use to stop the endless pestering about updates in an ESR version? If there really is one, what are the actual steps to find it and make it work?

Thanks.
