Firefox Won't sync through work firewall any more

I used to be able to sync through my work firewall. I do not know what changed, but I can no longer do so. Google Chrome (which uses built-in windows certificates) works I imported the certificates manually for firefox and while I can reach all websites I go to, I cannot perform a sync operation.

I am using Firefox Portable v47, but it hasn't worked in several updates.

Please see attached text bug report from about:sync-log. Well, that didn't work. Please see below data from the sync log

I should have been more clear: Working for a very large company means we sometimes have to do clandestine workarounds just to get our jobs done. Firefox is one of those workarounds. IE is the only browser we're officially allowed to have -- all the way up. The boss hates it too, and so does his boss.

Having said that, I did fix the problem and because I hate people who fix things and don't say how, here you go:

I noted I could get to civilian web pages, but tabs Firefox Sync said "not connected to the internet."

  • I returned to where our company stores internet certificates that are automatically downloaded for IE. (And thus Chrome, which uses the same system ones)
  • I manually re-uploaded the certificates. There were two new ones
  • I cancelled sync
  • I took a deep breath and deleted the passwords.
  • I closed Firefox
  • I opened Firefox and started Sync
  • I had to sign in/enter my credentials
  • Back to normal.

Good luck to everyone else.

Hi

You may want to have a chat to your companies IT security team about the changes they have made to their firewall.

My work only allows IE 10, no other browsers installed. I'm running Firefox PortableApp as a workaround.

Many modern supplier and other websites we interact with (looking up parts and information) no longer work with IE, which puts us in a bind.

But officially we can't acknowledge we're using other browsers. Thank you for the suggestion.

Tell the boss that the blocking is interfering with your work.
