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'm stuck on an older version of MAC OSX. Not my choice. 10.6.6

I had not upgraded Firefox for some time (version thirty-something), but recently checked the "automatic update" box. I suddenly found myself updated to FF 49 even though that isn't supported on my version. It crashed constantly. After some research I downgraded to 45 ESR, now 45.5.1, but I'm still having multiple crashes daily. 8 so far this AM. Firefox has become absolutely unusable for us.

How do I downgrade further to a stable version?

Regardless of versions, FF seams to "leak" on OSX, and after opening and closing enough windows I have to exit and restart in order to free up memory or performance grinds to a halt.Even that is more frequent under 45 than it was before.

Several clients have had this issue when starting Firefox.The only that thing has changed is that Beyond Trust was installed several months ago on our computers.

Hello, Pasted below is the report/details I get from Mozilla Crash Reporter. Is there any information in the report to help me fix the problem with my install? Thank you very much.

Clicking to launch Firefox immediately causes it to crash with the Mozilla Crash Report appearing. Even that doesn't work properly as I get a message reading, "There was a problem submitting your report."

I am connected, using IE to submit this request for help (the machine is XP). Below is the pasted Mozilla crash report information.

Thank you very much.

Windows cannot access the file for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program Firefox because of this error.

Program: Firefox File:

The error value is listed in the Additional Data section. User Action 1. Open the file again. This situation might be a temporary problem that corrects itself when the program runs again. 2. If the file still cannot be accessed and - It is on the network, your network administrator should verify that there is not a problem with the network and that the server can be contacted. - It is on a removable disk, for example, a floppy disk or CD-ROM, verify that the disk is fully inserted into the computer. 3. Check and repair the file system by running CHKDSK. To run CHKDSK, click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then click OK. At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /F, and then press ENTER. 4. If the problem persists, restore the file from a backup copy. 5. Determine whether other files on the same disk can be opened. If not, the disk might be damaged. If it is a hard disk, contact your administrator or computer hardware vendor for further assistance.

Mozilla,

I am requesting the "InstallDate" registry key added after installation of Firefox.

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla Firefox 52.4.1 ESR (x64 en-US)"

I was expecting a key with the format "YYYYMMDD", however no key exists.

Was this an oversight? Can we Add this?

      1. Example of the key

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Mozilla Firefox 52.4.1 ESR (x64 en-US)] "InstallDate"="20170901"

      1. EO Example of the key

Hi guys, I'm working on locking down Firefox for some of our corporate machines, and in at least one of our configurations, I need to completely remove access to the Library and all it's components for security reasons, as it could be abused to browse local drives, and these are supposed to be kiosks.

Is there a way to either disable the UI element of the Library (what's the CSS ID, and then I can try to put it in CCK2 to disable that UI element) or to completely disable the Library window/functions/feature itself?

Firefox is very slow to open, hangs, won't respond for a few seconds, etc. I also see a message at times, right above address bar that reads "Mozilla Firefox (not responding)".

Hi, my installation of Firefox 52.4.1 ESR is crashing reproducibly when I'm not using Safe Mode on certain sites, like Google Maps and Reddit.

I have created a completely new profile without add-ons and themes, and disabled hardware acceleration. Firefox still crashes on these sites. Only starting Firefox in Safe Mode solves the problem.

The problem only occurs on my tower PC which has a NVIDIA GPU, and not on my Thinkpad. Both are running the exact same Firefox version on Arch Linux with identical add-ons and user profiles. So it may be problem with video acceleration, but as I stated, I disabled HW acceleration. Btw. the problem doesn't occur with Firefox Quantum which I don't want to use until the most important add-ons are ported.

Anybody got an idea?

Have two Dell desktop computers with same amount of memory. Both running Windows XP Pro and same version of Firefox. Both have the same Firefox options set up. Both are on the same network connected by LAN. One computer started being incredibly slow to open Google home page. Refreshing Firefox always gets it back to normal but after a day - or two at the most - it goes very slow again. Opening any website takes between 30 and 60 seconds. This delay repeats if the browser is closed. When the browser is open, moving between websites - or opening different websites in a new tab, they load quickly. Have tried with and without private browsing - makes no difference. The only thing I've changed on the computer giving problems is to add a gigabit network card. Disabling it and uninstalling it made no difference. Adobe flash needs updating today but was up to date during this problem. Can't think what else to try.

Is it safe to push (mass copy) new file "channel-prefs.js" with modified preference or there is another way?

I understand that the recent Firefox v57.0.4 patches this vulnerability but the 03-Jan-2018 Mozilla Security Blog entry at https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2018/01/03/mitigations-landing-new-class-timing-attack/ is unclear because it states a patch will be released for "all release channels, starting with 57".

Recent versions of Firefox not working properly under Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) when $HOME is a NFS mounted file system

I am managing a group of network booted Ubuntu 14.04 workstations at a small town (public) library and the current version of Firefox for Ubuntu 14.04 crashes. The machine have all of the file systems NFS mounted. Installing an older version (Firefox 52.6.0 ESR) works however. The new version of Firefox works just fine on the pair library owned laptops, that also run Ubuntu 14.04, but the laptops are self-contained -- they boot off their local disks. Why is this? I have pretty much determined that the only definable issue is that the network booted machines are using NFS for their file systems. No, the workstations are not sharing logins -- each machine auto-logins to a *different* user, each with their own *separate* $HOME directory and they are *not* trying to share firefox configuration trees ($HOME/.mozilla/firefox/...). But all of these directories are NFS mounted. Oh, the server for the /home file system is running CentOS 6.
