Firefox version 52 ESR Win XP OS. Silverlight plug-in stopped working just yesterday on Netflix and my Win XP Pro OS. I have uninstalled the older version and downloaded the correct version I need 5.1.4.1.2 and it is installed but still doesn't work with Netflix. I cannot find in the registry Netflix and Silverlight permission to run the plug in. This is a problem and needs to be fixed. I don't have the money or means to upgrade my OS at this time. I have no tv either. I have been in contact with Microsoft and Netflix and they determined that the problem lies with Mozilla. I cannot use any other browser as Chrome does not work with Netflix and Win XP either due to unable to update WidevineCdm on XP.

The functionality of MultiFox is something I've been needing for awhile in order to log into multiple accounts on the same site simultaneously. However, due to the fact that I also still regularly need Java for certain tasks, I'm currently stuck using FireFox ESR 52.8.0

Is there a similar add-on that works with FireFox ESR? I've tried using a compatible version of "FireFox Multi-Account Containers" but it appears to be broken too.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hello, Yesterday Firefox 52 ESR has updated automatically to version 60 ESR. Version 60 does not support Java.

All official Portuguese government Customs and Export websites user java based forms. All updated versions have stopped working with those websites.

If I go to the ESR webpage and try to download the 52 version, the link automatically downloads the v60.

Help is appreciated.

Unable to switch FireFox from 'release' to 'esr' update channel [v45]

Hi,

Was running FF v44.0.2 set to the 'release' channel updates on Win7. Wanted to change to 'esr' channel updates of v45 [currently v45.1.1] rather than stay on 'release' [currently v46.0.1]

Looking online indicated I should exit FF then change the pref "app.update.channel" from "release" to "esr" in following file i.e. I edited the file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\channel-prefs.js' to the following [there is a comment before]

pref("app.update.channel", "esr");

[I didn't change the option 'app.update.channel' in 'about:config']

Restarting FF, the FF Help/About suggested I 'Update to 46.0.1' - I was hoping it would suggest the latest from esr channel i.e. '45.1.1' :-( Checking 'about:config', 'app.update.channel' showed it still had value 'release' - I was expecting it to have changed to 'esr'

I thought that it was maybe because I need to be on an 'esr' version before the esr updating works, so I manually downloaded 'Firefox Setup 45.1.1esr.exe' from mozilla site & installed it over my existing v44.0.2. The new FF version seems to run ok but it still 'thinks' it is on the release version i.e. 'Help/About' says currently 45.1.1 & suggests updating to 46.0.1, 'about:config' shows as 'release' [and also in the 'Troubleshooting Info' window]

Any suggestions to how to get FF to join the esr channel so that it checks that for those updates i.e. when released, FF will suggest to update to 45.1.2 esr [or 45.2.0] rather than 46.0.2

TIA

Been banging my head on this for a few days hoping for some help.

My main goal is to lockdown FF24.0ESR running on a Citrix 5.0 x32 server.

I have the mozlla.cfg setup and working however it doesn't change UI settings (remove help menu, remove google toolbar..etc)

I found a kiosk extension that will work great for this. However just to test to see if I can get an extension working I am using colorfultabs 28. If i can get that working then use that process for the kiosk extension.

I am unable to get the extension already installed for a existing user. Or any new users either.

I can put the extension in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions and it prompts the user to install the extension.

I want the extension already installed so the user doesn't have to (nor do they have permissions to) install plugins. We are using roaming profiles.

I have read several articles and moved the extension into the program folder,, move the extension to users\default and users\public , still with no success. Tried HKUsers default key as well.

Any ideas or pointers appreciated.

thx RR

Hello. I want to install Firefox ESR on top of my current installation, but what will change when I do so? What is different in ESR?

See, I have downgraded to FF 40 due to extension/add-on problems with FF 42, but I don't want an unsafe/unstable browser. ESR was recommended, but I'm confused about it. Will all my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc. remain the same? Is there a different updating schedule, and how does it work? I really need some help here.

Thank you!

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.

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.

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.

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

Hello,

Maybe a month ago my online banking (https://ib.swedbank.lt/private/d2d/start) links stopped working with Firefox 52. I can login, but when I press any link nothing happens. Then if I try to reload the page I get this confirmation message "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier." After I press Resend button, previously pressed link opens. OS on this PC is XP.

I have also tested this issue on another computer with Win7 and Firefox 56 and it also had this problem. But after the last upgrade on this version it works fine again.

Thanks in advance
