Is it possible that Firefox prevents serverside includes (SSI) from functioning?

I am no doubt asking in the wrong place, but...I have Apache2 running on a linux locally. I believe I have set it up to support server-side includes. I have a cgi-bin perl script, hell.pl:

#!/usr/bin/perl

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, world\n";
exit;

Under Firefox, I can generate the Hello World page through the url

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cgi-bin/hell.pl

where xxx.xxx... is the apache2 server address.

But if I try to do that via the html file:

<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
Test:<BR>
<BODY>
<!--#include virtual=/cgi-bin/hell.pl" -->
</BODY></HTML> 

All I get is page which is blank except for the "Test:" on line 1. The apache error and access logs show no relevant problems, as if the browser treats the serverside include as a comment.

I realize that the fault no doubt lies with the apache2 configuration, but I have studied and studied... and am now clutching at straws.

I am using the firefox version 17 and when i drag and drop an image on my website. It gives me the following error.

Unable to access local files due to browser security settings. To overcome this, follow these steps: (1) Enter "about:config" in the URL field; (2) Right click and select New->Boolean; (3) Enter "signed.applets.codebase_principal_support" (without the quotes) as a new preference name; (4) Click OK and try loading the file again. Or go to the homepage for a link to the tutorial on how to do it.

I have completed the above steps and it is still showing the same error message. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm looking for non-social Firefox edition or version. I want to follow the latest FF updates, but without any integrated services like social spyware and any other kind of malware. Options disable / enable are not sufficient to be safe and security in Firefox is corrupted by social API.

Social services and features must be implemented only as a simple optional extensions and nothing more.

I deleted it as it wasn't working anyway but it still doesn't ask if I want to save. The other two accounts are unchanged

Is there a way to disable the HSTS ( HTTP Strict Transport Security ) list built into Firefox or to allow exceptions?

HSTS is problematic in that it incorrectly assumes that all users trust the default list of CAs and makes the adding of exceptions impossible even by advanced users.

For example, torproject.org is inaccessible on Firefox unless I am willing to trust DigiCert to never sign a fake certificate either by negligence or by court order of any country in witch they operate, thereby making every https: site ( not just torproject.org ) vulnerable to a MITM attack.

A user disabling CAs in the browser is not unreasonable given the ever growing list of CAs built into Firefox ( each one a potential point of failure ), the number of CAs that have been recently compromised and the very low standards required to obtain a certificate.

While I understand the desire to protect the average user who doesn't understand how certificates work and will click past warnings without reading them, this protection should not come at the expense of more security conscious users.

I would recommend an about:config setting that would allow the creation of exceptions by users who explicitly choose to do so.

So far the only kludge I have been able to come up with is to modify c:\program files\mozilla firefox\xul.dll with a hex editor and replace the sites on the list ( this is far from an ideal solution ).

Hi, I am experiencing an issue whenever I log into my Uni website. I am using 17.0. I have to update my Uni password every 3 months and in the past, Firefox would ask me if I wish to update the new password into its records every time I changed. Whenever I would click on the bookmarked Uni link my Uni ID number and password would appear as the page loaded and I could simply login by right clicking the Login link.

This worked well for a while and then stopped working and I can’t for the life of me think of what changes would have been made. I have scoured the support website looking at solutions and none have worked so far. I have checked Exceptions in the security tab to make sure that the site is not being blocked and that is all clear.


Not sure of what to do next…

Thanks, Andrew

I have Firefox 17.0 , NORTON security and running XP service pack 3. I just started having the problem. When I didn't have the issue when using IE8 I upgraded to Firefox 17, but that HUGE annoying IPOD AD was still there. It doesn't appear to a problem with Yahoo, at least to me.

I've been using a master password for years. I also use Sync. Today I wanted to look up one of my saved passwords. When I went to do this I noticed that Firefox was no longer set to use a master password. I'm afraid that I may have been hacked, or that something else happened (recent Firefox update?) that caused the use of the master password to be disabled.

I have not yet checked my other Synced computers to see if their master passwords have also been turned off.

I have re-enabled the master password feature on this computer.

On this particular computer, I've had a long-standing issue where Firefox "Help>About Firefox" always shows that I need to "Restart to Update". This means that I cannot use "Help>About Firefox" to check for and install the latest version. I need to download Firefox manually and update by running the installer.

So.. I heared that a site can see my browsing history using a bug.

I saw on some sites that this option: layout.css.visited_links_enabled should be turned off. i did so. Did I do good?

After this, i tryed this test: http://pcflank.com/browser_test1.htm and i failed COOKIE CHECK test. I got this message: "Your computer may save SPECIAL COOKIES on your hard drive that have the purpose of directing advertising or finding out your habits while web surfing."

After this, i tryed this test using Internet explorer 6 and Google Chrome, and this browsers passed the test. What should i do? Is this test good? IF not, please leave me a link with a test i should do.

I use Windows XP.

Thanks for your answers.
