Statement on Firefox 33 and self-signed certificates

Dear Mozilla,

Your decision to drop support for self-signed certificates is causing problems all around in LANs, VPNs, and domain networks both home and corporate which employ SSL but use self-signed certs. Despite it being understanding that it is generally ill-advised to access sites with such problems, further deciding that this minority of exceptions should be abandoned altogether in a world web full of so many shades of grey and complex setups is not a responsible decision.

Please implement methods for us to be able to coexist with these updates, as suddenly dropping support for the plenthora of routers, domains, websites and other sources using such a setup, many of which cannot be quickly updated or even at all, is a big problem.

The internet engineering taskforce has not issued any such directives, nor have broader plans to drop support for self-signed certificates been announced. In the lack of a transitioning climate away from this setup or any plans to do so, Mozilla has unilaterally decided to remove support.

Please remember that you have a large userbase and thus a responsibility to keep available means of access that are in common use by the world. Self-signed certificates still very much play a role in the ecosystem, and they will continue to exist for as long as there is a need for encryption on intranets.

Thank you!

I've started getting a 400/Bad Request errors on various sites. I'm running FF 41.0. I cleared my cache/cookies, and it helped a little but still having issues. Some sites that don't work will work if you type the site differently. Some examples:

Every day around 9:30 PM, browsing the web becomes impossible. nearly every site I visit brings up a This Connection Is Untrusted page. I have tried using different browsers and Different Devices. Even my 3DS doesn't work. This has lead me to believe that the problem is either with the modem or my service provider. I checked the certificate of Google via chrome://pippki/content/exceptionDialog.xul, and it read ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) security.frontier.com Organization (O) security.frontier.com and when I checked it now, it reads ISSUED TO Common Name (CN) www.google.com Organization (O) Google Inc I don't know what fixes this problem since the problem stops at different times. It started around when I installed AVG, so I tried uninstalling it, but the problem didn't stop. While I'm fairly certain the problem isn't related to Firefox, this is one of the sites that I am able to visit when this problem occurs. I have tried manually adding the exception so I could bypass the Untrusted Connection page, but the page never loads and the next time it happens, the page is there again anyway.

In our organization we are using a firewall which has an Intrusion Prevention System. The IPS has a certificate which must be imported into the browsers to be able to load SSL websites. This allows the IPS to inspect the contents of secure packets for any malware or viruses. The problem is this isn't working very well with Firefox. Most secure sites bring up one of the following errors:

Secure Connection Failed The connection to <website> was interrupted while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

OR

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to <website>. SSL peer rejected a handshake message for unacceptable content. (Error code: ssl_error_illegal_parameter_alert) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get Firefox to work in this environment?

6:43 PM 4/24/2015 Compatible issues firefox v37.0.2 with att yahoo mail

Hello: this is my first post,hope I am doing it properly. I am using W7pro OS and ATT DSL 3.0Mbps dl I noticed this week that I was unable to save attachments from my ATT Yahoo mail I could view them but no choice as to ware to save them--only choice (save to my comp.)But no ware to be found. I reinstalled v 36.0.4-preventing auto upgrade-But still had same problem. At this point contacted ATT support supervisor-we spent about 4hr working on problem--He was using your v 31.5.0--and had no problem accessing and saving attachments using remolt access on my comp. We also found using my comp.FF v 36.0.4 & v 37.0.2 browser,that we could without any problems access an save attachments--AOL mail-- & mail2web.--& IE--Even when forwarding inaccessible mail to above sites.

He informed me that (ATT mail Yahoo)only uses resources to make them compatible with--Google IE & Chrome &Apple? (basically he was saying,that they would NOT commit resources to FF--any version)BUT he was not allowed to commit.


PS: The last time I know it worked ok was 3-18-15 I have 3 comp.2 wxp pro 1 w7 pro the same problem on all 3--so feel confident not OS related-but compatible problems with FF & yahoo mail.

The ATT support supervisor-was unable to determined the date they may have made changes on their site.without extensive research-which we decided wasn't worth the effort as they wouldn't look in to it.

I hope someone or FF will be able find a workaround-as I do not want to use the browsers they suggest. I LOVE FF.

Thank You Gary

Firefox download of files not working or not finishing for one user on one computer account but does for another on a separate account.

Firefox on mac osx with automatic updates for OS and Firefox up to date for over a year recently started producing failed downloads (probably between 9-13 and 9-14, around the time of the last Firefox update). What has been tried to fix this: everthing from the Mozilla help pages “What to do if you can't download or save files” asserted to be based on information from “Unable to save or download files (mozillaZine KB)” with the exception of dealing with the "plist" file since that could not be found in this OS installation. If anything has changed through these efforts, it has been to cause the failure to be more severe. Before attempting any fixes, the downloads usually produced a zero-byte file of the expected name and an apparently full-length download file with the expected name and a ".part" extension (or an abbreviated download file with a jumbled alphanumeric name and ".part" extension). After all the fixes were attempted, with the additional trial of patching the profile from TimeMachine back-ups well before the initiation of the problems, and then a final effort of a complete Firefox re-install (freshly downloaded via the separate account on the computer then Firefox removed prior to a fresh install), downloads now fail for that one problem account producing only the zero-byte file of the expected name and no ".part" files yet seen again. Created new profiles in Firefox under the same computer account inherit the same download problems (tried twice).

FYI: in addition to the troubleshooting information below, the computer account with the Firefox problems reports another four plug-ins (Blue Jeans, RBlue Jeans and "install" for both). As these do not show up on this computer account where the Firefox browser has no download issues, this may matter. But since the download issues were independent of Safe Mode operation for Firefox, presumably the plug-in differences would not matter.

First, repeating my original issue: I have a Mac, OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I can access my Hotmail "Contacts" page using Safari, and at one point it seemed I could with Firefox. Now, I can still get to my Hotmail account with Firefox, but not my "Contacts" page. When I try to, I get this message:

"This page is temporarily unavailable. We're sorry, there was a problem showing this page. We experienced some technical difficulties retrieving the content."

Although I had my OS restored a few days ago, this problem may have existed before that, but I was using Safari, so I may not have noticed it.

Please use layman's terms--I am not tech savvy.

The response from Mozilla was to clear my cache and cookies, but they clear automatically when I exit Firefox. Then there was advice to start in Safe Mode--that sounds more like for a PC then a Mac. I had this very problem last year when I could access my contacts through Safari, but not Internet Explorer on my PC at work. After a few months, IE suddenly connected to my Hotmail contacts, WITHOUT MY DOING ANYTHING. COULD IT BE THAT THERE IS SOME KIND OF DISCONNECT BETWEEN FIREFOX AND HOTMAIL, THAT HAPPENS AFTER GET INTO MY HOTMAIL ACCOUNT, THAT WON'T LET ME GO TO MY ADDRESS BOOK? CAN SOMEONE CHECK ON THIS, SO I DON'T SPIN MY WHEELS TRYING TO SOLVE A PROBLEM FROM MY END, THAT NEEDS TO BE SOLVED INTERNALLY THROUGH FIREFOX/MOZILLA?

Hi

I am often needing to use different public wifi's - so maybe this is why it is happening.

or maybe something else has happened as I installed a new add-on TabMix Plus..

or maybe I muffed something else up...I do not know.

But as of today, Firefox keeps blocking content on sites I visit all the time. I have cookies allowed.

So I click in the URL bar, and say allow. But each page, this is happening. Rather tedious.

How can I remind firefox, that this site is OK. I love its content, please allow it always. How can I say this automatically without having to click the icon in URL each time.

please see screenshot of icon I am receiving. The symbol gets a little red line thru it once I have clicked "allowed" thankyou

I have searched all over to find information on this microphone icon that appears when I'm in a call. I have found no information on it or how to disable it.

It blocks the view of my tabs at the top and can only be slid left to right across the tabs. As of today, even when a call has ended, the icon remains there. There is no way to exit it. I have to close out Firefox after every call to get it to go away.

I'm using a custom built PC, with Windows 7 x64. Firefox is the latest version and I have never seen this before. -This does not happen on my work mac mini, but firefox might be one version behind.

I have asked Firefox twitter support twice on the issue. The first time they had no reply except "maybe ask the forums?" and the second time there was no response.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

in the newest updates of Firefox (37, 37.0.1, 37.0.2) i noticed some rendering bug. I don't discovered a pattern but always I saw this bud when I'm changing tabs or first load a page. This bad render of some elements I can see on several pages, but my screens are from one to show how it behaves.

On Firefox 36.0.4 or Firefox Developer Edition 39 everything works perfectly. I attach a screenshots and link for this page: http://www.mythemelab.com/fermstalbfm/index.html - this is project presentation, a few elements with backgrounds to show how website will look and work...

I use Firefox on a Mac Pro 3,1 with ATI Radeon HD 5770 / OS X 10.10.3

Hello,

I have already read the same type of question and try the solutions proposed:

Clear the cache and remove cookies only from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

   Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now" 

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

   Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: "Show Cookies" 

Start Firefox in safe mode -- still have the same issue.

With other browser Chrome the same issue.

Trying to access other website to buy tickets I have more or less the same issue:

403 Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

I have also tried with use system proxy settings / No proxy

Still the same issue.................

What it can be? How can I solve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Kickass Torrents is a very popular torrent site, yet I find suddenly that it is blocked by firefox as a potential phishing site. This does not bode well for mozilla's reputation for supporting an open internet and freedom of choice.

For the last at least 25 releases, FF has gotten continually more hostile to someone like me who is visually impaired. I had read that FF was going to stop using the hamburger for menus because screen readers couldn't process it. That has not happened. Hamburgers, paper airplanes, icons instead of text, triple dots, and selector switches to turn settings on and off are all anti-accessibility. I don't like any of those features anyway. What is wrong with words like, "Menu," "Submit," or "Send"? This has been getting worse and worse over time. I don't know if the developers for FF are simply oblivious to the problems that they are causing or if they know but don't care. Gmail is worse but it seems like FF is following Google. What a horrible thing to do for accessibility, among other things. At least, though, Gmail on my phone can use the pinch technique to make the text larger. Firefox on my Android phone will not allow that. I cannot enlarge text in any window in the native FF phone app. This anti-accessibility is to pervasive it seems deliberate. Why is this being done????
