browser warning: possible security risk - ssl_error_bad_cert_domain

the situation: we publish an internal wiki website in our intranet. the delivering server provides a certificate issued by our own microsoft active directory pki (root-intermediate-servercert). firefox is configured by gpos in order to use windows cert store, where root and intermediate are installed. but nevertheless firefox drops an error message ssl_bad_cert_domain and i do not see why. in chrome or chromium based edge everything is fine. no ssl warnings. as you can see in the attached screenshot the cert includes various san fields for different host names, which includes two ip addresses (anonymized).

any advice what do to is mostly appreciated.

thanks a lot peter

To avoid neck strain, I have my browser window set to fill only the lower part of my screen - not maximized.

When I open regular FF, it opens the window to the desired size & position. But when I then open a private window, it opens in the right size, but at the top of the screen, and I have to move it down every time - which strains my neck. Is there any setting I can change so that the private window will open in the same size & position as the regular window?

(Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Windows issue, but I also have the Brave browser, and that opens a private window in the same position as the regular window, so it seems likely a FF issue.)

Does anyone know of a work around to enable clipboard API functionality over a local intranet without a public domain name?

  • I use a local server application with a http interface on my home Intranet, accessed via FireFox (a web browser). I do not want the program to be accessed from the internet, and don't have and don't think I want a public domain for my local Intranet server. In the past I have been accessing it from Firefox by book marking the IP address and port.
  • The program has recently changed from using Document.execCommand() method to the modern asynchronous Clipboard API.
  • The clipboard API in Firefox defaults to requiring the host is accessed via https (appropriate for public facing internet access) or the host server is run on the same machine as the web browser (127.0.0.1 or localhost).
  • From a security perspective I'm not convinced I need encryption between computer in my home networks (if that traffic is being intercepted without my knowledge to modify or spy on or modify my clipboard then my private network has already been severely compromised).

As a result the program's clipboard functionality no longer works for me. I have tried

  • looking for Firefox exception settings, to enable clipboard API functionally over http (vs https) for specific local IP, but could not find how to do that in FireFox
  • I have tried installing Caddy but without a domain name I couldn't get it to reverse-proxy to https

Am I missing an easy solution or do local servers need public addresses now.

Hello, I see that when adding a new bookmark, Firefox now remembers the last used location and sets it by default. I would prefer to keep the previous behaviour of defaulting to "Other bookmarks". Is there a way to disable it please?

I was trying to switch between channels by changing the value in prefs.js

I guess some of the paths are not fully supported. Like from nightly into release it is downloading and restarting the browser but update fails and starts all over again leading to a vicious infinite loop.

Using Linux on multiple computers, until the last Thunderbird version I was able to keep all my email folders on an external hard drive, by simply puttin a symlink of the ~/.thunderbird directory to a directory on the external HD. This way I was able to work everywhere, always with my email locally available. Last T version, unfortunately, broke the spell, and I was greeted with the error "this installation of thunderbird has a new profile". Do you know if there is a way to keep on working with a detachable email storage?

Every time Thunderbird updates of late, the icon for T/B I have in the W10 Task Bar goes blank and will not load the program. I then have to reload the icon into the Task Bar at which point it works again. This usen't to happen but I am now seeing something like 20 episodes of this which implies that 20 updates ago something triggered this very frustrating effect.

Help would be appreciated. Rob

Hi. It's really annoying now. How can I disable autosaving "top sites"? I randomly visit 5 websites (FOR THE FIRST TIME) and 3 of them already shows up in my top sites. How the hell this stupid calculating works when I visit a website for the first time and firefox already thinks that it is a top site?! What the hell... Everyday I spend 20 minutes of deleting/unpinning those sites because I don't give a sh*t about them. And there's no option to turn it off. You can turn off the whole top site section but that's not what I want. I just want to disable autosaving or autopinning random sites. Where and how can I do it?! If it isn't possible then I'm done with Firefox.

After the 85 update on Linux, Facebook and Instagram videos started playing choppy (low FPS), YouTube videos are fine though. They work okay on the Brave browser. I tried refreshing Firefox but it didn't help, so it's not from my add-ons.

Edit: Vimeo videos have the same problem.

Every so often when I am browsing and go onto a website the text becomes all jumbled as if it can't read the font properly. This has only started happening recently. It definitely seems to be a font issue as when I copy the text and paste it into a document it reads perfectly and if I close the browser then open it again the text is back to normal. It seems to happen after I've been using the browser for a while.
