Since Ubuntu Mozilla Daily ppa is no longer regularly updated (see https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa ), I want to build my own self-signed Firefox packages similar to the ones created by Ubuntu Mozilla Daily; but I can't find anywhere the way they are built.

Actually I successfully compile Firefox, so I need just the necessary informations in order to build a deb package with it.

Thank you

Hello everybody.

On Linux CentOS 7.1.1503, I have Firefox 31.4.0 and Java 1.7 installed by default. I need to have Java 1.6 used by Firefox.

I installed Java 1.6 rpm. As suggested here : - https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/JavaRuntimeEnvironment (chapter Java x86_64 JRE and plugin) In - /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ I created a symlink that points to - /usr/java/latest/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so (located in JRE 1.6).

When I display "about:addons", Java 1.6 is listed, BUT, when a load a simple HTML page (see code below) aimed to display Java version _really_ used, 1.7 is displayed.

Thanks for advance for your help. Frederic.

--- HTML code ---


<title> A Simple Program </title> Java Version : <applet code="JavaVersion.class" height="75" width="250"> </applet>


--- JavaVersion.java ---

import java.applet.Applet; import java.awt.Graphics; public class JavaVersion extends Applet {

   public void paint(Graphics g) {
       String version = System.getProperty("java.version");
       g.drawString(version, 10, 10);
   }

}

How can I select a client certificate from a smartcard?

Hi,

I have a spr532 card reader with a test smartcard with Firefox 50.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 up to date. I want to use the client certificate from the device to log in on a website that I am developing.

I also have a test certificate that I generated and it is not on the card. I can log in with the test certificate that I have but not with the one on the card. The problem is that in the "User identification request" page I cannot see the certificate from the smartcard. I can see my generated certificate but not the one on the smartcard. Firefox asks me for the pins for the smartcard (I have two certs on the card and they both have PINs). Firefox sees my certs from the smartcard in about:preferences#advanced > View Certificates > Your Certificates column. I have both the certs on the smartcard and the one I generated in that table. But when I try to log in, Firefox only shows me my generated cert and not the one from the smartcard.

What can I do? How can I debug this? This is a dev environment. I can change any configs on the server so I can decrypt the TLS session and see what is going on between my server and the browser.

PS: I tried to send this message with 2 other email accounts but I do not get the confirmation email.

Thank you!

Hello Techies, facts are these: Firefox + HTTPS Everywhere on Linux, updated once a day. I connect to my webmail, Yahoo.com, and often the padlock turns to grey+orange triangle. But https is still present in the URL bar (by the way, I've set browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false). So I try and refresh page (F5), positive result only every now and then. I tried and switched to Basic display (I guess it should be lighter), positive result only every now and then. I feel I can't do anything to fix this annoying and weird lack of security. This "instable green" only occours connecting to Yahoo. When I connect to Facebook, GMail, YouTube or whatever I do NOT have problems at all. No difference using a normal, super updated session rather than a Live one (as I'm doing right now). I've written to Yahoo Help Community to explain as above and I was told it depends on the way Firefox "sees" Yahoo, and to ask You. Thanks a lot... To me it actually IS a Yahoo problem (not the first time, though...), but still I ask you whether you can suggest how to fix the problem or you know more about it. Many thanks and best regard.

After a very recent update to FireFox May 2017, the url address bar in Firefox 53.0.2 no longer shows the current URL in the address bar. While a portion of the current URL shows in the "tab" not knowing exactly where you are prevents one from possibly correcting a typing error to get to the right location or being able to copy and paste a web page url into an email or other document. No, I do not want FireFox to be like a phone, or Google Chrome, or any other product!

I want "My FireFox" back!

Hello.

I just upgraded my OS. The upgrade included Firefox v60.0 which replaces the window manager, which I find unacceptable. Not only is this highly irritating because I use the 'Close' button on the left (and Firefox has it on the right) it also messes up the appearance (colours, transparency, icons, etc.) but also removes some of the window manager's functionality (shade, focus model, keyboard shortcuts, etc.).

How do I disable this "feature" so that I can use my system the way I want to instead of being dictated by Mozilla how I should use it?

Thank you kindly.

Hello Support Team,

For a couple of days I am unable to load a couple of site. (e.g. attachment: loginscreen from binanc) To me the screenshot and the behaviour of the other sites looks like javascript is not working properly. I can not login and nothing happens, when I click the "button". I only reach that screen, when I enter the login URL through history. When I open the main website binance.com, it links me binance.com/de and a blank white screen is shown....

As mentioned in another threat (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1221621) I already tried a bunch of troubleshooting, but nothing helps and brings the few websites back working. I can not imagine, why only a very few sites refuse to work, while 99% load and work normally. Is there any way or troubleshooting to reset javascript or something?! And here again: in private mode all site are working normal... Another thing is that, if I

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

Hello, i started using Linux (Debian stretch) and after a few days i realized that in Firefox (63.0.1 64bit) can no longer use the deleting key (not "Delete", but one that is used to erase text from right to left) to go back in history on a tab. I found i can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+right arrow, but this one is much less handy than single key which i am missing.

Second problem is that when i click back button by mouse, then it do not scroll the page to the spot where i was, but the scrollbar is on the top of the page which is not convenient.

These two things seems like a small issue, but it making quick browsing uneasy. Please how to fix these issues?

--- Yes, in about:config, i had to set "browser.backspace_action " to be "0", unsure why on Linux they do it differently.

Does the Network Monitoring component of the Firefox Developer Tools have a way to preserve its log upon navigation (which would otherwise be cleared), similar to the Chrome or Safari Developer Tools "Preserve log upon navigation" button?

I've tried checking the "Enable persistent logs" option for the Web Console in settings, but it does not appear to affect the Network Monitoring tab. I also didn't see any bugs filed for it, so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something obvious.

Thanks, Kevin
