One of my friends downloaded a virus onto my pc, and I used malwarebytes to get rid of it. Although, when I open Firefox, or any internet browser, http://trustedsurf.com/?ssid=1458266251&a=1040936&src=sh&uuid=375dea8b-9c00-4387-884e-aa4571cc6d38 comes up despite any settings I change. I realize that it is giving me more viruses and it is annoying to have to run malwarebytes so often. I have already checked my extensions and reinstalled Firefox. Any ideas on how to remove this?

We are currently using Firefox ESR 38.2.0 with our RHEL 6.7 workstations and need to change the network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 from the default of TRUE to FALSE.

We tried putting a .js file in /usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/preferences to change it, but the change is ignored.

When we try another setting in the file, such as perf("network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1-https", false), then the change is made, however, with the ntlm-v1 setting, it is ignored in the file.

We can change the user_perf for network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 on a per user bases, but as an enterprise we would like to make this change for multiple users at once and not on a per profile.

Is there any way to do this, or is creating a script and placing it in /etc/profile.d the best option?

Thanks! Joe Giles

I would like to know about changing some security settings in about:config.

Right now in about:config the line [security.OCSP.require;false], and line[services.sync.prefs.sync.security.OCSP.require;false] are set to false.

Would I have better browser security if these two line were set to 'true'?

Are there other security changes I could make in about:config that would result in better security.

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.

Switching from Safari to Firefox, I wanted to use the same proxy settings. My first try was to use the system's settings, as it gets automatic proxy configuration from the right URL. This worked alright for Safari! On Firefox however, if I'm connected to the VPN I can access all websites in our VPN, but none outside, as I get the SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER (can't always add an exception) As soon as I exit the VPN, firefox is "unable to find the proxy server".

I've tried all other kinds of ways to connect via that proxy - manually connecting, by URL in firefox or by automatically detecting, but nothing solves my problem. The automatic configuration shouldn't be the problem as it works fine for Safari and shouldn't be any different for Firefox.

I'd really appreciate any help on the subject.

Hello, I want to prevent third parties accessibility services to enter my browser. But the way this checkboix is formulated confuses me. If I check the box 'prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' is it then enabled or disabled? What are the accessibility services here? I read all the instructions but still find it a confusing sentence to check or uncheck?

Should I read the sentence as "prevent Firefox Accessibility Service from accessing your browser'? Or should I read it as "prevent any type of physical impairment assistive software from accessing your browser?

Hope you could help me with this. And if so it could be nice to make this sentence a bit clearer. Or maybe I'm just a bit confused and you should just leave it like this;)

Best,

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
