Our company has built an application that is currently used by many banks. Recently, we have updated the application to change from a thick client to a thin client using web browsers. The web based client communicates via SignalR to a local windows service that gets installed in order to talk with a check scanner. The web application is served as an HTTPS web site and the local window service which uses SignalR also runs via HTTPS. When the local windows service is installed, a self-signed certificate is generated and installed on the local computer.

When the web client is run on a Mozilla Firefox web browser, a security exception must be manually added for the localhost URL of the SignalR service. The problem is that in the Add Security Exception dialog, the following text is displayed by Firefox: “You are about to override how Firefox identifies this site. Legitimate banks, stores, and other public sites will not ask you to do this.” Since our applications are used and hosted by banks, this message is not true in our case.

We cannot install a unique signed certificate for every client, which is why we generate a self-signed certificate. We cannot host the local windows service running as just under HTTP, because then the web client cannot communicate with the local windows service due to mixed content security violation. We know the shield in address box on Firefox can disable the protection, but this would have to be done every time.

Is there an alternative to the text in the Add Security Exception from being displayed? Or do you have another suggestion on how to get around this issue? Or can the text in the Add Security Exception dialog box be modified?

Hello, I have a google drive that works with Chrome, but I don't like Chrome. What I would like to do is upload data to my google drive (my work uses google drive). When I drag and drop folders or files to my google drive I get an error message that says 'file upload is not supported by your browser' and gives me a link to download google Chrome.

I've tried the permission (the lock) in the upper-left and set Java (which I downloaded separately) to 'allow' but no success.

Is this a permission thing or can Firefox (v.38.0.1) really not do this properly?

I don't want to switch to Chrome...

Hello group hope all is well.

The other day I asked the group a question and you were kind enough to help me resolve it. Your instructions were for me to refresh Mozilla. It worked but now I'm getting pop-up ads. Please instruct me how I can get rid of pop-up ads while searching and on YouTube and anywhere else primarily.

I did try the preconstructed ways of getting rid of pop-ups.

This is what I've tried but did not work. I click the menu button in Mozilla/Firefox top right-hand corner. Click options. And then followed through the rest of procedure to see if I had the box checked for pop-up ad stopped. The box was checked and I did proceed after that to the dialog box. There is nothing in the dialog box to see if that was the problem.

Thank you!

Recently I made a bookmarkbackup, which automatically got a json extension. After renitizialising my laptop and reinstalling Firefox I wanted to import this file, but Firefox seems to only allow importing HTML files, apparently. How does this happen and, more importantly: how can I fix this ?!?!?!?!

I have had problems with this ad several weeks. I'm guessing 3 or 4. It seems to pop up mainly on facebook. When it first started I could close it out ok. It is a very big annoyance. Sometimes popping up 2 times in less than 10 minutes. I downloaded the new firefox and it was working great. My avast virus and malware protection says everything is good. Now the ad is starting to effect both facebook and Firefox. It minimizes both firefox and itself in 2 separate tabs. However when I click on it and then click close it shuts down both. I am afraid I may be sharing my problems with your product. Earlier it would lock up or freeze the page so I couldn't continue my work. I even reported the problem to centurylink in case it was hired by them.

Hello,

I am running the newest update for firefox (Version 38.0.1) on Mac OS Version 10.6.8. When I open a new window in firefox, the close, maximize, and minimize buttons are located in the top left corner, as usual. However, if I enter fullscreen mode on a video, and then exit, the buttons are not there. They are not simply invisible - clicking in their usual location has no effect.

Thanks, ReOsIr

I am trying to use a Livescribe Echo Smartpen. The Livescribe web site has a utility that allows me to drag-n-drop a PDF file (containing audio) into the site for playback. It is an Adobe "thing". Firefox does not support this.

When will Firefox be brought "up to date" and in line with the rest of the browsers?

This activity is supported by Internet Explorer, Chrome. It is almost supported in Safari (with limitations below OS-X 10.8.5 the image content is displayed but no audio is provided. Livescribe shows this as a "known issue" and as yet has not gone to the trouble of fixing it. Likely this is more an Apple thing than a Livescribe thing.)

Friend updated automatically to 38.0.1. Complained of very slow response to typing and mouse activity.

Logged in for "over the shoulder" support and confirmed slow activity.

After checking all extensions and addons for any updates, still not working properly. Starting FF in safemode cured it as a test.


Found previous version, 37.0.2 and reinstalled. Problem gone.

Some sort of problem with 38.0.1 or with addons compatibility with 38.0.1.

Now that I am looking at how the screen is working, my install of 38.0.1 is also really slow.
