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)

Our streaming audio service has been using Adobe Flash Player since 2007. With the February 2015 release of Firefox 36 many of our customers (Windows and Mac) are seeing our Flash player hang indefinitely at "Trying connection on port 1935". In somecases reinstalling Adobe Flash Player will fix this; in other cases reinstalling Firefox will fix this; in several cases only allowing incoming connections on port 1935 (new firewall rule) will fix this.

What happened? A lot of our customers use Firefox and suddenly no joy.

Thank you!

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.

the href are not working. The text is not made clickable when i hover and does nothing when i click. I've tried resetting Firefox, checked there are no proxies but nothing's changed. In Google chrome they work fine.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

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.

The file will always have ".complete.mar" in it. It's the only file with the word "complete" under this directory. How can I parse the version "40.0.2" from it.

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!

I've selected in the update tab under the advanced options to never check for updates, none of which I will ever want to download, never had the Maintenance Service installed, and also confirmed that the values of such preferences of "app.update.auto, app.update.enabled, app.update.silent" are set to false in about:config as I was told they should be. Yet, EVERY time I open Firefox, Firefox automatically tries to update itself, prompting User Account Control to ask my permission for Firefox to make changes (the upgrade) to my computer. I do not want to have to click no every time I'm asked this because Firefox tries to update itself WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. What can I do to stop this?

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
