Our company has built an application that is currently used by many banks. Recently, we have updated the application to change from a thick client to a thin client using web browsers. The web based client communicates via SignalR to a local windows service that gets installed in order to talk with a check scanner. The web application is served as an HTTPS web site and the local window service which uses SignalR also runs via HTTPS. When the local windows service is installed, a self-signed certificate is generated and installed on the local computer.

When the web client is run on a Mozilla Firefox web browser, a security exception must be manually added for the localhost URL of the SignalR service. The problem is that in the Add Security Exception dialog, the following text is displayed by Firefox: “You are about to override how Firefox identifies this site. Legitimate banks, stores, and other public sites will not ask you to do this.” Since our applications are used and hosted by banks, this message is not true in our case.

We cannot install a unique signed certificate for every client, which is why we generate a self-signed certificate. We cannot host the local windows service running as just under HTTP, because then the web client cannot communicate with the local windows service due to mixed content security violation. We know the shield in address box on Firefox can disable the protection, but this would have to be done every time.

Is there an alternative to the text in the Add Security Exception from being displayed? Or do you have another suggestion on how to get around this issue? Or can the text in the Add Security Exception dialog box be modified?

Will Firefox be updated to support Audio PDF (m4a) files as do Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari already do?

I am trying to use a Livescribe Echo Smartpen. The Livescribe web site has a utility that allows me to drag-n-drop a PDF file (containing audio) into the site for playback. It is an Adobe "thing". Firefox does not support this.

When will Firefox be brought "up to date" and in line with the rest of the browsers?

This activity is supported by Internet Explorer, Chrome. It is almost supported in Safari (with limitations below OS-X 10.8.5 the image content is displayed but no audio is provided. Livescribe shows this as a "known issue" and as yet has not gone to the trouble of fixing it. Likely this is more an Apple thing than a Livescribe thing.)

Simple put, I cannot use Google as a search engine and would like to again. It's set as my home page and use it frequently in my job as an editor.

The problem seemed to start last week. I did notice an alert that an updated version of Firefox was available, but didn't click to update yet. Additionally, I recently updated my Kaspersky Antivirus Software (not sure this has any bearing).

Thank you in advance for looking into this problem. I have been a long-time Firefox user and supporter, and am looking forward to seeing how this can be remedied!

I created a Sync account from my FF install on my Win8 laptop. A day later, I signed in from FF on my Win8 desktop.

Nothing has changed. I expected to see my bookmarks, open tabs, etc., from the Win8 laptop.

What, exactly, should happen? And is this documented anywhere? I dug and dug on the internet, forums, etc., to find out what exact functionality to expect and I can't find a description. How do I know when Sync is working properly?

So after creating a Sync account on one machine and logging into that account from another, exactly nothing has changed on the browsers on each machine. Tabs, bookmarks, etc., are exactly the same as before on each machine.

Please help: what am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?

Thanks, Marty

Just today I found that when I click on youtube videos to make them fullscreen, it goes into a fullscreen mode with the both to deny or allow firefox to be in fullscreen. Can I go back to the old and much better and faster full screen that I had yesterday? It took just a millisecond to go to full screen and back again with the old way but the new one it lags for a second to look sleek or something.

Thanks

Firefox 38.0.1 - believe I received this version on 5/15/15. Saved passwords active.

Since the update when I log into Wild Apricot membership software - 3rd party web based product - I get into the admin area just fine. When I edit a members record the 'password auto-fill' feature of Firefox will place my password into the members password field and cause me to high-lite the password and delete it - this has become bothersome. Wild Apricot support recommended that I turn off the save 'saved password' feature. This 'solved' the problem but is a work around.

Hard to tell from my perspective where the 'problem' exists with the interaction between Firefox and Wild Apricot - it did not exist prior to the Firefox 38.0.1 update -- any suggestions?

I followed all three suggestions in the support article I found. The "last resort" option was to completely remove and reinstall Firefox. I deleted all traces of the application, then ran the installer. I got the Firefox "first-run" page. All good. I checked the preferences, and under "Applications" --> PDF, the selected option is "Preview in Firefox". However, the first time that I click on a PDF, I still get the same old "Save/Open" dialog, wanting me to download the file or open with Adobe Reader. I would really prefer to just have PDF files open directly within the browser! Why will the built-in viewer still not handle PDF files, even after completely re-installing Firefox?

When using Google Maps and Yandex Maps pinch zoom causes Firefox to zoom the page rather then actual map zoom to happen which is not what I would normally intend when I use this gesture. I'd appreciate if somebody could share a workaround for this. I've also noticed that single finger pan gesture on map shown in an iframe on a third party web site causes zoom to happen instead of pan, which is extremely annoying.
