We have created a self signed CA certificate that verifies a sub domain "*.dev.mydomain.example", NOT as in the more common case the whole domain "*.mydomain.example".

Firefox does not properly recognize a sub domain of this wildcard, e.g. cms.dev.mydomain.example.

The error message is:


cms.dev.mydomain.example uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for *.dev.clearsense.at (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

I have been having some problems for the past few months now, which started approximately mid April, but they were largely minor and I did not mind them, but now they have tried my patience for too long. My Firefox does not seem to be syncing correctly, and the error it gives is an unknown error.

These may be minor, but other problems have coincided with this error prompt. For hyperlinks, they are not remembered but links clicked from long ago are remembered and still appear purple, while un-clicked links appear blue, as well as links that are clicked now. Many preferences are not saved, and I cannot create new bookmarks, or edit pre-existing ones, either by duplication, changing their names, or changing their locations. Futhermore, there is no way to access the "organize" function within the bookmark menu. I am not completely certain if these are all related, but i believe the bookmakrs and preferences to definitely be related to this syncing problem, with the hyperlink problem still a mystery.

Attempting to re-sync just causes a sync error to reappear within a second, without change. I have followed some instruction from past questions, such as refreshing or conducting a clean reinstall, but nothing so far has fixed this problem. Indeed, even a fresh reinstall still remembers my old sync destination, but cannot allow changes to be made, so I cannot truly start "fresh". I have the sync error log for the most recent sync attempt, gained via about:sync-log, which can be found here: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8836344

Thank you for assistance in this matter.

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing. Added header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' in response header for iframe data. Can parent page now manipulate iframe's DOM ?

Let say, I have a page on domain www.a.b.xyz.com. This page contains an iframe, with data from www.d.xyz.com.

iframe is loaded with data from www.d.xyz.com, by submitting html form to host www.d.xyz.com. In return server www.d.xyz.com is returning HTML DOM to be rendered in iframe. Server also sets header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *.xyz.com' in response.

iframe is loaded with HTML DOM from www.d.xyz.com.

Now, I'm trying to access/manipulate (for eg: Click a button in iframe) DOM from parent page using Javascript. But, I'm not able to do so.

Is it because, 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *.xyz.com' just informs browser to show/render the content from www.d.xyz.com on www.a.b.xyz.com, but do not grant permission to parent page to manipulate iframe's DOM ?

I am able to manipulate iframe's DOM from parent, only if I create sub-domain for both parent and iframe- document.domain='xyz.com'; I changed domain using firebug debugger.

Any help will be appreciated.

I set up a computer (dell windows 8 laptop) for my child. I have parental controls on, however have Facebook set as an allowed site.

When I try to access Facebook through Firefox on my child's account, it says it is not a trusted site and won't let me go further. I can, however, access Facebook (my child's account) just fine from my account (admin) on the computer.

These are the technical details provided: facebook.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Saw some info on adding the additional root certificate, but it was not clear, and I did not fully understand.

All help appreciated!

My browser is Firefox, the OS is Vista, and my connection to the internet is through a Virgin Mobile USB modem (model Huawei E!60E), which is one of three devices that are plugged into a four port USB hub, the other two devices being my wireless mouse transmitter and a USB memory stick. It works well enough for me, except for the annoying situation posed in my question. After shutting down my computer, on restart Virgin Mobile prompts me rather quickly to connect to the internet. This it then does, and quite swiftly. BUT, if I arouse my PC from sleep mode, not only does it not offer me a prompt (apparently it is not designed to do so, according to Virgin), but also it takes five or six painfully slow attempts to finally make internet connection again which eventually seems to occur as much due to sheer chance as to any identifiable reason. I achieve this by clicking on the connect button of the Virgin prompt screen (which I have to manually activate to appear), and then keep clicking 'connect' and 'cancel' repeatedly until finally success ensues. It would be so much simpler if the condition 'sleep mode' creates with the modem could be avoided, so that I could quickly reconnect again to the internet. The time I save by not shutting down, is more than lost by wasted time trying to reconnect to the internet after 'sleep' I have tried some of the predictable fixes -- namely uninstalling and re-installing Virgin, as well as fiddling around with settings related to "Allowing the computer to turn off this device", but without success. I also note that if I go to 'Computer', the entry that appears for Virgin Mobile describes it as "CD Drive (F:) Virgin Mobile" which, of course, it is not. Would it be possible for some kind person out there to offer me an explanation and some clues as to what best to do? Regards, kevindu

Somehow in my quest to add AOL to available "mailto" programs (which I belatedly found out how to do via an add-on), I think what I did was inadvertently create a bogus https address that shows up on the File>Email Link selection as file "IOSX6AAU," which I can not find anywhere in a search on my computer. When I click it, I am asked what application I want to use to open it. I've tried several hours of Help topics around setting or changing default programs, and it doesn't show up at all under Firefox menu's Options>Applications>mailto display. It doesn't affect the operation of my computer, but it is an annoying detail for which I have taken up an annoying quest to correct. If someone knows the answer to this riddle--and also, out of curiosity, how I managed to create this situation--I would be grateful to learn it.

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).

On the about:home web page the search text field is set to autocomplete=off when I inspect the field element. I would like to change it to autocomplete=on on a permanent basis. I can do this on a session basis by editing the element details but I would like to be able to do this permanently. Is there a method by which this can be done? I would also need to remove the "searchSuggestionTable" references.

My reason for requiring this is that I use the Forms History Control add-on. This allows a drop down of my own search history entries to be displayed rather than those from a search engine.

Thanks for any suggestons.

I refer to the classic case where I have an SSD and don't want to "consume" it by watching endless videos on YouTube (and/or other sites) that are being buffered to the disk. Or does the buffering of such videos occur in RAM by default in Firefox?

I also want to speed up Firefox at the maximum.

What are the downsides of having the entire cache in RAM and, if none, why isn't the default instalation with no cache at all on the disk (browser.cache.disk.enable = false) ?

What is the best configuration of Firefox (regarding cache) on a laptop with the an SSD and 4 GB of RAM?

Thanks in advance.

Since things keep changing at light-speed these days, do you have a single diagram that shows all of Firefox's main elements with all their names? For example, what your developers call the "navigation bar" is where the "location bar" is, followed by the the "search bar" , with several interspersed areas that include both Firefox standard icons and some add-ons' icons. (I don't know what those interspersed areas are called.) Your help info now refers to an awesome bar, which is apparently another name for a souped-up location/address/URL bar (per "Awesome Bar - Search your Firefox bookmarks, history and tabs from the address bar"). You've got a relatively new blue down-arrow control on the nav bar which provides a drop-down tray, whose name again I know not. There are also bookmark, add-on (now discouraged, I think), and additional bars that may be added, and perhaps others.

I don't want to become a developer. I just want to know how to use the customization features. If you don't already have it, a single diagram that shows the browser with all its optional parts would be *better* than a thousand words (in articles like "Awesome bar" and "Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars"), just to orient users (and hopefully keep them updated with changing versions and labels).

Thanks again fo your assistance.
