Cannot update self-hosted add-on due to "Certificate issuer is not built-in" error

I have a custom add-on that I'm working on for my team. It's hosted internally on a server signed by our company's internal CA. The add-on is signed by Mozilla, but not hosted on AMO.

I am on the latest version of Fedora running Firefox 81.0. In the browser console I get this error relating to the URL for the addon when I tell Firefox to check for updates: "Certificate issuer is not built-in".

I have the company CA installed and when I navigate to the site in the browser, Firefox recognizes the cert. I've done some reading on the subject and seen several threads about it. I've tried a few things already, but most of the threads where a couple of years old.

I'm asking the question here hoping to figure out what the current state of the problem is and which settings I should tweak to have it trust the company CA or what my options are.

Thank you in advance for any support on the issue.

Hello,

I'm getting the following message:

« Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to XXX@XXX.org was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account »

I can connect to this support using the account, but not using sync on my devices.

My mail is a valid email address, and there was some temporary problem with the mail server which explains why the mail was returned.

What can I do to get back my account? The « let us know » link leads me here.

Thanks,

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm used to deploying/configuring Firefox in an organization with settings in autoconfig.js, etc. Recently, I've seen that some settings are honored, others aren't, so I started using policies.json as well as keeping my autoconfig.js. Can they work together?

In any case, I am unable to disable app update with either of them. I have the following in policies.json:

{

   "policies": {

"DisableFirefoxAccounts": true, "DisablePocket": true,

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true, "DNSOverHTTPS": { "Enabled": false }, "Certificates": { "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true } "PopupBlocking": { "Allow": ["http://10.215.144.56:8080", "https://intranet.mydomain.org"], "Default": true | false, "Locked": true | false }

   }

}

I'm also showing a snippet of my autoconfig.js file:

lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.url", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.details", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.manual", ""); lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);

The problem is that when I start Firefox 78.3.0 ESR and go to the about Firefox window, I can see that the app update is not disabled.

How can I make sure that all the above settings in autoconfig.js are actually honored?

Thanks

I would like to use HTTPS to access my router's web interface without having to bypass the "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page.

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

Hi, I'm using both Linux and Windows on my computer. I've got problem with firefox sync, on Windows I'm using program like IDM and also use it's extension on Firefox. Meanwhile, on Linux this extension is useless. If I turned it off while on Linux, when I relogin to Windows, this extension also get turned off, I understand this is due to Firefox sync nature, but its so ineffective if I've got to turn it on and off while switching between OS.

Is there any workaround for this?

TIA

Ok, thanks, finally human help! I just had to change my pc and make a fresh install of the operating system. I used Linux mint on the last pc, and have Linux MX 18.3 on the new one, currently in use. I took the precaution of copying my Firefox and Thunderbird folders from the old hard drive, as I have several years worth of bookmarks organised in to folders, irreplaceable. This was the way I had preserved that information in previous changes, and swapping the old folders with those in a new install worked fine. But now i find the new version has changed and the files differ and cannot therefore be swapped. I don't really want to get into blaming or how disappointed and annoyed I am, as this won't be the fault of the person helping, and that is appreciated. But back ups need to be backwards compatible or there is no point? So, not sure which version I had, but will have been a couple of years old with updates. In my 'etc' folder there was a Firefox folder, and in that I have a folder marked pref. In that folder there is a file named apturl.js and I have saved those folders. With my new install there is not even a folder for 'firefox' in my 'etc' folder. How do I proceed to restore my bookmarks? If I need to install and older Firefox version I will do so. Many thanks, Tony

In my home network there are several servers whose URLs end with ".lan". For example http://nas.lan or http://router.lan. When I want to connect to these machines with Firefox, I usually type router.lan in the address bar. But then Firefox starts searching for router.lan on google. Afterwards I am asked if I had wanted to access http://router.lan instead and when I click "Yes" Firefox takes me where I actually wanted to go. However, this can get quite annoying over time, and I wonder if it is possible to tell Firefox to go directly to the URL I enter whenever it is a string ending with ".lan" and avoid to search for it? Don't get me wrong, I do not want to disable the search bar completely as I am very used to type in searches into the address bar directly.

Visiting this site:

https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

Firefox tells me that the certificate in invalid.

"...Web sites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for www.kulturkritiskforum.dk. The certificate is only valid for kulturkritiskforum.dk.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN..."

Looking at certificate tells me it is valid, and so does:

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html#hostname=https://www.kulturkritiskforum.dk/

"...www.kulturkritiskforum.dk resolves to 18.197.157.167

Server Type: Apache

The certificate should be trusted by all major web browsers (all the correct intermediate certificates are installed)...."

And Chrome does not report any errors either.

Where is the actual problem/error?!
