I'm making automatic installer for special Firefox extensions. I have read couple of articles about that, but none of the described methods are not helped. What I tried to do:

- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions
- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\extensions
- Placed unpacked extension directory in another directory and added record in registry (`HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions`, key is extension id and value is full path to unpacked extension)

In all ways name of unpacked extension directory was:

- Random name
- ID from install.rdf #1 (`{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}` for example)
- ID from install.rdf #2 (`prism@developer.mozilla.org` for example)  

And, as i said, all methods don't give me expectable result. Firefox don't show extensions in list and don't show any notification. How can i solve it? What actual method using in current version of FF? Target browser is Firefox 41, system - Windows 7 x64 Thanks!

Hi all; apologies for the long post.

All of the major browsers recently dumped applets or intend to, including Firefox. I have spent the last five years developing a ranking engine web site and software based around a 64,839 line Applet that needs to pass customised ranking criteria back to the server once the user has finished modifying the preset criteria to their needs (the ranking criteria is stored as graphs).

Web Start is simply not going to do the job and its too big a project to start from scratch and rebuild it in something else. The whole project, including test data SQL code is over 234,000 lines of code and was due to be launched in March next year. Seriously, they could not have picked a worse time to dump Applets.

The following is a bit of an overview of the engine. Please; to any Mozilla staff reading this, this engine is well worth supporting...

Even if just one browser supported Applets, I could convince people to switch browsers. This technology will change the web and computing like no other, and will attract a lot of users, so I would please ask that Mozilla consider reinstating the option of running Applets. The web site is only a product ranking engine for retail products at present, but will expand into other areas at a latter date. It can capture a knowledgeable expert's ranking knowledge, for virtually any retail product, and then make it available for anyone to use at the click of a button.

The engine is based on an abstract theory for how the human brain uses neural networks to rank things for us. The engine is capable of ranking pretty much anything the human brain can rank. Like the human brain, it is capable of ranking entities that have absolutely no attributes in common within the ranking criteria (I'm not really sure what that can be used for yet). It can also use any attribute, that the brain uses to rank things, for which we have no formal system of measurements. This is possible through the use of graphs to capture, edit and store the ranking criteria. Essentially, if an entity type has describable attributes, then it can be ranked by this engine.

If the user is always willing to accept the highest ranked entity, then it can be used to capture a large number of decision processes which use ranking of a set of options, and which do not make use of the imagination. It can then accurately emulate that decision process. This technology will allow Robotics, AI and Software Agents to make a large number of decisions the way that we do.

This theory is part of a wider theory for how the human brain generates most all emotions and feelings, including those for interactions and the Ego, using neural networks. This theory was developed over a period of 17 years. The ranking engine was merely a byproduct of this work.

This is no pie in the sky theory, the engine has been fully functional for over two years, and is currently ranking 1225 digital cameras using 89 attributes. It is only the background administration of the web site that needs finishing. I also have an Australian Provisional Patent "METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR RANKING ENTITIES - AU2016900828" (http://www.ipaustralia.com.au/applicant/wegner-ronald-robert/patents/AU2016900828/). My patent attorney firm, Spruson & Ferguson based in Sydney Australia, would never allow a hoax to tarnish their reputation.

If anyone at Mozilla is reading this, please consider keeping the option of Applets!

Kind Regards, Robbie Wegner

I have created a website using Firefox as my browser, and tested it on all platforms and using laptop, phone, ipad. I'm seeing that the logo I created and one of the images which look good on Firefox are greyscale in Chrome and Safari. All the other colours look good and I'm at a loss. If it was all of them, I could understand, but it's not. I suspect this is a common query, and I'm sorry to bother you with this because I'm going round in circles on the support forums and everywhere. Here is the URL - it's still in test but I've taken maintenance down so you can see if you use another browser. This is the first website I've built so it's not something I've come across before http://www.thenorthwestvahub.co.uk/ Have you a suggestion please? Firefox is always my browser of choice, but unfortunately others use Chrome and Safari. Many thanks!

Hello,

I hope this is the right forum to ask this question. I have a plugin that I have created. (XPI file). I am looking to push to a few client machines and install the plugin silently. I have administrative rights on the machines. One way I tried to do this was to create a folder in the ...\browser\extensions folder and name it with the ID of the plugin. Then I extracted the contents of the XPI file. Then I restarted the browser and the plugin was installed. However, it is disabled. Is there any way to make the plugin enabled or will the user always have to manually enable it?

Thanks

Dear all

On of the websites I have editors right on doesn't have SSL installed.

Since I upgraded to Firefox Quantum, when I go to the login page, I can't enter my login details anymore. The field is not clickable. It works on other browsers.

Firefox does warn me that the website is insecure, but how can I go through anyway ?

I love Firefox, however it's missing a feature that would help me a lot.

I'm a developer and I switch between the Development and Production web site a lot.

I'm worried I do some action in Production thinking I'm in the Develop one. To minimize the risk there are some measures I take. 1- I use a different user in the Development version 2- The Development version as a different color 3- I use a different browser for Production (Chromium)

I would like to start using Firefox in Production too, but in order to make it safe I need to be able to change the Firefox icon in the Operating system status bar. This way I always see with icon in the Operation System status bar I should click to go to the Production Browser. If for security reasons the Firefox icon can not be changed for each profile, then if you add a "save to desktop" chrome like feature it should do the trick. In my particular use case, since the Development version does not have the favicon, It would be enough to Firefox display the favicon of the current selected tab instead of the Firefox icon.

Thanks

We have an Add-On that will no longer work with FireFox once it updates version 60.2. It will heavily impact our stores ability to use certain functions/integration with our website until we get either a new add-on released or make a change to the site. We had planned on disabling updates for FireFox temporarily on each PC at each store but I am hoping for a workaround. I am curious if there is a list somewhere of the server IP’s/URLs that FireFox would use to update. This way I can just blacklist those IP’s for the time being until we get a new add-on released or an update to our website. This way they would not be able to download the latest update. It would prevent me from having to alter settings on each PC at each store (we have close to 70 locations and 4 computers at each). Is there such a list? And if so can someone point me there? Thanks!

Our business website has recently been relaunched, it displays fine on other browsers but is beyond broken on Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of how it looks on Chrome, to see how it looks on Firefox here is our url: https://www.exegetic.biz/.

As you can see it's VASTLY different and VERY frustrating. I've done a fair amount of reading as to what the issue could be but all the suggestions I have found are end user based... For example emptying the cache, clearing cookies, checking the zoom etc. This doesn't really help since I've looked at the site on various devices with FireFox and they all appear the same...

Has anyone else experienced this? Any help would e greatly appreciated!

Hi,

We are developing a new website for a client. The client is seeing a strange issue when viewing the site in Firefox, where a thick dashed border appears around an image and column in the footer of the website. It happens when she clicks in the footer somehow. It seems inconsistent, and the client sent us 2 different screenshots where the border line looks different. (Screenshots attached.)

We haven't been able to re-create the issue on our end, even after testing on several machines and browsers. The client is using a Windows computer and is running the newest version of Firefox. She only sees the issue when using Firefox (it looks fine for her in Microsoft Edge). She has seen the issue on several different dates, and after disabling all her Firefox extensions.

Here is the link to the site: http://82a.de4.myftpupload.com/

Anyone seen something like this before, and have any idea what it is or how to fix it?

Thank you!!

Hello, I hope this is the right place to post this question. I apologize if it's not. Please tell me if I am posting in a wrong section.

Firefox is not displaying right fonts on a site I am working on. • I am working with files locally on my Mac so I can't provide url. • I am using @font-face rule and index page displays the right fonts that are in my folders. I am not using link to Google. • Problem is that all the other pages display only default browser fonts. But all the other CSS styling, on those pages, works just fine. • My index page is in the root folder, fonts have their own folder, and all the other pages have their own folder.

   - root folder 
                       |- index.html
                       |- styles folder - css folder, etc…
                       |- media folder - fonts folder, etc…
                       |- pages folder - about.html, page2.html, etc…

• I have added fonts in ttf, woff, woff2, eot, and svg formats. Technically, I only care about at least making ttf files work. • I am using the latest Firefox. • I cleared all of the history. • And I tried Firefox in safe mode, so far nothing works.

Does anyone have any idea what am I doing wrong? I very much appreciate your help.

I created a javascript script that generates the mandlebrot set using P5.JS . It's worked fine for smaller versions, but now I want to try creating a large version to save as my desktop image, however Firefox keeps telling me: "a web page is slowing down your browser what do you want to do?" then giving me the choice between "wait" and "stop it". If I click wait, it will shortly ask me again. This is annoying for two reasons: I don't know if the script will continue if I don't click wait, and I want to just leave my computer for a few hours while it works stuff out, which I can't do if I constantly have to click wait and I don't need telling the browser is being slowed down, I know that will happen as a result of my script.

Is there anything I can do to get rid of this message for my specific page? Will Firefox continue to run my script if I don't click wait.

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.
