Will a patch for the Meltdown / Spectre vulnerabilities be released for the extended support release Firefox ESR v52.5?

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".

We are currently having to role back to FireFox ESR 52.9 from the latest Quantum build of FireFox 60.3.0. Due to the fact that this version utilizes WebGl 2. Our older systems will not render one of the educational games we utilize in the our School District any longer due to the fact that Quantum uses WebGl 2 instead WebGl 1. We have tested and verified that ESR 52.9 renders the game properly.

I have been trying to disable the automatic update in utilizing the user.js file and the cfg file. The computers are apart of the domain. From what I have read only new user profiles will get the new user.js settings while all existing profiles will retain the old settings so we plan on reimaging these computers so all existing profiles will be wiped.

I have also seen users block the updates by changing the Host File which we will not do. Some sites state create a profile folder in the defaults folder other show place the user.js file in the pref folder. So I am lost at this point. I have followed this guide as well:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox/Enterprise_deployment_before_60#Changes_Over_Time

I have placed the 00_admin-prefs.js with the exact settings shown and have the mozilla.cfg file in the same folder as the js. both are in the defaults\pref

When trying to run FireFox I am am not getting:

Failed to read the configuration file. Please contact your Administrator. (I am the Admin). My domain creds give me admin privileges on all computers.

I know this folder also holds the channel-pref.js so I am not sure if I can add what I need to that file.

If someone would please help me determine what is going on. Why wont firefox copy the either a user.js file or utilize the cfg file I created to each new profile that gets created when logging into the computer.

Migrate Firefox 59.0.1 profiles/user data to ESR using account sync

We have a client that used to run on local computers running the latest ESR version, they recently changed to a terminal server environment and during the setup 59.0.1 made it onto their new setup. Multiple issues have arisen that were not present on the old system and we need to move them back to the ESR version on the terminal server environment. I read online that you cannot just directly import any profile versions 55.0 and up to earlier versions so I am asking if I can instead use a mozilla account to sync over their data instead without causing a catastrophe, and if anyone happens to know what I might expect afterwards if this could potentially work.

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.

Need to change ntlmv1 settings for users

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

Since Friday 25/5/2018 Firefox Developer Toolbar (SHIFT + F2) shows me hundreds if not thousands of errors on every page I visit, but if I click on the counter it'll show the Developer Console with 0 or almost 0 errors.

Just to make an example on this page it's showing me 663 errors, but if I open the console it only shows 2(3) warnings and 1 error. On some pages after a few minutes it reached 4k+ errors.

Firefox ESR 52.8.0. Yes I tried to launch firefox in safe mode and in fact I'm using the safe mode right now to write this post, but nothing really changes.

Trying to allow a manufacturers' system scan after suffering longstanding desktop issues but before this can happen I have to download their support assist launcher. So the problem is, the download is blocked after the run/save window with another saying unknown publisher and so refuses to start downloading. The manufacturer says check internet connection. It's fine Now I've allowed the name of the support launcher in firewall via exceptions but it still won't load. Even tried it with firewall turned off. The download Icon TzsetupSfx, is shown in the downloads folder along with its file version 1.2.0.715 and name of publisher. So what can I do to get the download accepted by Firefox. I'm running 52.7 in win XP 3 pro. The manufacturers' URL is a www.
