How can I provide my own list of CA-certificates for TLS-connections from within a Add-On

I'm considering writing an Add-On that does a DNSSEC/DANE lookup.

My scenario is that a DNSSEC query for the TLSA (DANE) records of a site return a full Root Certificate for a site. (2,0,0 in DANE jargon.)

I want to create new TLS context with a CA-pool containing just that Certificate, so that when I browse to the site, the TLS-layer verifies the site certificate against the DNSSEC-specified Root CA.

My question: how do I program that in an add on? How can I specify a *certain* CA root certificate before opening the connection.

I can't work with any of my plugins because the plugin check says the status of all my plugins is "unknown," and offers no action except the "?research" option. I can't uninstall them, either.

I am trying to make google hangouts work with firefox, and I think I need to be able to remove or update old google voice/video plugins to do that. But I can't get at them.

We have an NPAPI Plugin which is embedding a Windows Application inside Firefox using the plugin container. The application we are embedding is being modified to support IA2 interface for it's various controls. When we embed this in IE (using BHO), it all works fine and JAWS works fine. But when we embed this in Firefox, as we hover over our application inside the FF tab, all we see is "Embedded Object", so basically FF is intercepting the messages and not letting the underlying window get hold of it and return appropriately. Even clicking inside out application doesn't help. Is there a way to tell Firefox that my add-on support IA2 so let it take care of it's own things?

I want Fire Fox display its SEARCH RESULTS (not web pages) in the middle of the screen when using a WIDE SCREEN MONITOR (with text size 150% increased).

  • I guess the increased text size affects the length of text folded before reaching the right side end of the screen, but large font size is quite important for me, so changing the font size would not be a fix for this problem.

The link below is an image of my screen. http://www.fastpic.jp/images.php?file=8926352964.jpg The monitor resolution is 1920*1080. The right side is of the screen is empty so the best sitting position is in front of left side of the monitor and that is quite uncomfortable.

So would you please teach me how to 1. increase the left side margin (I guess this can be done with an add-on) 2. (Important) reduce the RIGHT SIDE MARGIN so that the text length toward the right side before folded be lengthened and the text be displayed toward the right side end.


Thank you for your kind help.

I'm at my wit's end. I've installed the latest version of jre (7u45) and everything went well. Followed all the instructions here (http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_Java) and here (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/manual-plugin-install-linux-136395.html) on setting up symbolic links and all. libnpjp2.so is now happily residing in my /usr/lib/browser-plugins folder. And when I start Firefox, nothing appears under Plug-Ins.

I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling both java and firefox numerous times to no avail. Firefox absolutely refuses to recognize java. Not sure what to do now.

Our IT department—what a great way to start a question—does not roll out regular updates for Flash. To bridge this security gap for Firefox on my work computer, I copy the following files:

  • flashplayer.xpt
  • FlashPlayerPlugin_<version>.exe
  • FlashUtil32_<version>_Plugin.exe
  • NPSWF32_<version>.dll

from C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash on another machine and paste them to C:\Users\<myusername>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Plugins on my work machine. When Firefox starts, it scans the various locations (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin_scanning) and finds both this version and of course the outdated version originally installed, which IT does not update (currently 11.1.102.55). This effectively updates Flash, and until IT finds a solution to distribute updates I'll have to continue to update Flash manually (Java is unfortunately not so easy to fix), but still leaves me with a problem.

My perceived problem is that Firefox still scans the default installation directory of Flash and thus finds the outdated version. Under Add-ons > Plug-ins, I can select from "Ask to Activate," "Always Activate" and "Never Activate." If I select "Ask to Activate" for the current version (12.0.0.43) and "Never Activate" for the old version (11.1.102.55), upon restarting Firefox it sets both to "Ask to Activate." I conclude that Firefox does not treat separate Flash versions independently. Since constantly being prompted to activate Flash is bothersome, I could just set both to "Always Activate," but that leaves an old, even-more-compromised-than-the-current version of Flash activated.

The best solution, I suppose, would be to uninstall the outdated version of Flash, but I don't have the administrative rights to do so, and don't want to pester our IT administrators. I could prevent Firefox from scanning the directories specified in the Windows registry for PLIDs (see above link), but this would prevent it from finding my also-outdated-but-only-installed Java Plug-In, which I keep thinking I need. The behavior I'm after is to prevent Firefox from scanning or finding the old Flash version, while still finding my Java Plug-in. How could I go about this?

Thanks

I am currently working on creating a GPO for Firefox deployment. I have gotten a MSI created from Frontmotion and the deployment of the software works. I have been scouring the web to find settings for the config to have firefox automatically import bookmarks from IE on first load but cannot find anything relevant to version 26. I have the .adm added to the gpo so if anyone happens to know the settings necessary to make that happen I would greatly appreciate the help.

Hi

We use FFox in a corporate environment due to issues with IE on certain intranet pages.

The existing version 17 had a number of files that we used to customise and lock down firefox, ie preventing users going in in safe mode etc.

These files no longer appear to be present in v24.2.0

I need to prevent users from pressing the shift key and entering ffox in safemode as they could disable/remove the plugins we use to assist locking down the application.

Can someone please advise on how I can achieve this in this version.

thanks

We are working on a library system management software that also provides us a webapp to work. The date is auto-populated in forms in the format yyyy--mm-dd instead of the fact that the computer is setup on mm/dd/yyyy format. Is there a way we can change this or is it something that is embedded in the website. Just a note that the same thing works fine in chrome only.

I want to know is there any add-on to redirect url in mozilla firefox. In Google Chrome there is an add-on Switcheroo. I need the url switcher like this in mozilla firefox. I have already tried with redirect url add-on of mozilla. But its not redirecting correctly.

Requirements:

I need to test the localhost portal pages. But in few places the dev environment url is hard coded. I want to redirect those urls to localhost to test the changes which I made in local.

Eg redirection:

protocol://dev_hostname:dev_portnubmer/wps/portal/abcd/xyz/u!/abcd

should be redirected to

protocol://localhost:localhostPortnumber/wps/portal/abcd/xyz/u!/abcd

For this redirection in google chrome switcheroo add-on I have configured like this:-http://dev_hostname:dev_portnubmer ---> http://localhost:localhostPortnumber. The add-on changing the protocol, domain name, port number. It's not changing the rest of the url part. Its working well as I expected. But in Mozilla I need an add-on like this.

I have written several local shell scripts to handle how to open a PDF. When Firefox asks me how to open a PDF, I would like to see all of them in the dropdown menu. However, I can only see the one that I had previously selected, so whenever I want to use another one, I have to click "Other..." and go through my filesystem to their respective paths. Is there a way to permanently make several applications appear in that dropdown menu?

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

Firefox has been depreciating extensions and native add-ons in favor of high level JS add-ons; and moving away from Adobe flash and NNAPI support. All this is culminating in making it difficult to support Microsoft ClickOnce applications on FireFox (and Chrome) platforms.

There are two issues at hand: 1/ To launch an application that will initiate the ClickOnce .NET launcher 2/ To launch the installed application

Both from the web application. To put this into context the business application launches a scanning device for a Saas application. I have been using Microsoft Net Framework Assistant extension for many years and recently Firefox admin has removed it. To further compound the problem; Chrome and Firefox are both dropping NNAPI:

3/ How to launch on the OSX platform (not a Click-Once app)

Chrome (yes I know this is a Firefox forum) is going PPAPI. Firefox has no plans for PPAPI - stating that WebAPI should be sufficient for mime support. However, in context of Click-Once I am not sure.

So, I am reaching out to you. I am a developer and am not adverse to writing my own solution if you can point me in the right direction for the technologies I need to use. Any advice and support will be greatly appreciated.

The question simply put: How can I launch a Click-Once package from within a Firefox hosted web page and have it install and launch the application? I am OK with asking the user to install an extension/plugin/add-on (but given the industry - this will either have to be a commercial solution or one I write).
