This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!

My problem is the SAME as an earlier post: "On this website, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/index.asp, the left side flyouts don't work with Firefox 26.0 but do work on IE on same computer." I am running Firefox 32.03. The left flyouts can be highlighted but no flyout menu occurs. IExplorer on the same computer allows them to work. I am running windows 8.1 on a HP 10.1" netbook. I have tried the suggestions as per the earlier post with no luck. The same as the previous poster it seems??

I have created a plugin with a sidebar. I would like to be able to change the URL of the current tab in the sidebar's window or open a new tab, given that I click a button in the sidebar (or an event is triggered in the sidebar). I am currently using the following Javascript code to go to a new URL:

content.location = newURL;

However, I have other buttons in the sidebar that open new (small) windows. If I first click one of these buttons to open a new window, then the above code fails; it changes the URL of the tab in THAT NEW WINDOW, not in the window of the sidebar. How do I change this?

This also seems to be complicated by the fact that the sidebar document does not have a parent. Any tips are appreciated!

Recently (first complaint today), all of our embedded google calendars on our site stopped loading in Firefox browsers. Specifically, it is the month view. The calendar actually loads and the contents can be seen on agenda and week views. However, Month view remains empty (A google calendar framework appears complete with the tools that might normally be there[month selection, print, view tabs] but the expected calendar is not there, so it is quite short).

We have 3 online google calendars that are injected with the <object data> call. All three work in Chrome and Safari as they are designed to work. This is only effecting Firefox (have not tested IE). I reset firefox, and started it in safe mode. I also downloaded and ran Firefox 33,32,30,28, and 15. It effects them all.

So far I have only tested this on a Mac with Firefox, Safari, and Chrome

Let me know if you have any suggestions or if there is more information you may need.

thanks

On my corporate intranet, there are a couple of internal systems with web interfaces that generate the sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial error. Every resource on mozilla.org and other sites that I have found lists only two options: 1. get the admin of the site to fix the problem, or 2. temporarily add an exception

Even the Mozilla support article specifically about this error message is not helpful: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Certificate%20contains%20the%20same%20serial%20number%20as%20another%20certificate

I have asked the exact same question here and the question was closed without an answer as well: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/996094

Nowhere have I been able to find information regarding a permanent exception. I understand that ideally, for a public website, the long term fix will be for the website admin to fix the problem, however there must be a way to permanently add an exception in Firefox to completely ignore this error message. I already tried deleting the "cert8.db" file and this has not resolved the problem. I am not interested in any temporary exceptions or temporary resolutions; I am specifically asking how to permanently ignore this error message.

Thanks.

Hi guys,

I hope that someone may be able to help?

I am currently working on deploying Firefox 50 in an enterprise environment. I have a few SSL Certificates that are required to be used. These are the steps I've taken so far:

  • Generated the cert8.db with a sample profile
  • Copied the cert8.db into C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\defaults\profile
  • Created new profile... profile loaded the correct cert8.db

I then found the cert_override.txt file (needed for a self signed cert) and copied it to the same directory, deleted profile and created another one. The problem is this time it didn't copy the file over...

I re-installed Firefox and deleted profiles many times I now cannot get the new profiles to copy files from \browser\defaults\profile anymore... Has anyone experiencing anything like this, or have any ideas on how to resolve...

It's worth noting that if I manually copy these files into the Firefox profile after generation the certs work as expected.

Hi, recently my team have developed an intranet for our colleagues to upload their working files (mostly excel) to share with other colleagues. During testing, however, we noticed that whenever we tried to upload Macro-enabled Excel files (i.e. xlsm format), Firefox failed to do so, while it has no problem with IE or Chrome. I am not that technical with regards to website development so I don't even know how to approach the problem. Do I need to configure my firefox browser? or do I need to go back to the PHP code and modify there? Many thanks!

There is a problem with file selection when you use the double-click method of picking the file instead of highlighting the file and clicking the Open button.

. I’m not sure if it is a Serv-U bug or a Firefox bug, but something isn’t playing well with others.

https://thwack.solarwinds.com/thread/60471

Based on the info I gleaned from the link I experimented with various combinations of browsing, navigation, entering file names/paths. After manually keying in the full path and file name in the file selection dialog which opens when you browse for a file, the upload worked. Further investigation revealed that any combination which terminates with clicking the Open/Select button on the dialog instead of double clicking the desired file seems to work. The true frustration with all this is that no matter which method you use or which result you wind up with, the only thing displayed in the file name field on the Serv-U dialog is the filename itself without a path.

To summarize, if I double click on the highlighted file in the selection dialog below, the filename is populated in the Serv-U dialog as shown in the second image. If I highlight the file and click on the Open button, the filename field is populated as well with no apparent difference. In all the other browsers I’ve tried (and any other application for that matter) either method works as expected. But with Serv-U / Firefox (multiple versions, this was done with 32) the file will fail to upload when you use the doubleclick method with an error stating that the specified file or directory does not exist. Using the highlight / Open button method allows the file upload to work as expected.
