Firefox NTLM authentication not passing credentials through to IIS server running .net 4.5 based application, but works fine on .net 2.0 based application

We have an intranet portal that we have been running for years that is based on .net 2.0 IIS application pool. We push firefox preferences out and a few things I think that make this work are these network.automatic-ntlm-auth.allow-non-fqdn = true network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris = domain.com (our domain name) network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris = domain.com (our domain name) network.automatic-ntl:m-auth.trusted-uris = .domain.com (our domain name).

Normally our original site proceeded wtihout any issue.

The new site that the vendor wants to upgrade us to has a ton of upgraded code and a slightly updated look and feel and new controls for publishing and configuring content. Like the previous portal, this also runs on IIS but uses .net 4.5 application pool. What happens is when we hit this site in Firefox we are bombarded with a username and password prompt. If you cancel a bunch of times the site will load but eventually it pops up again. If you enter your domain username and password then it goes away and you can use the site normally. IE, Chrome and Edge just go directly to the site, automatically using your current windows login identity so if you post content on the intranet portal it shows as you.

We did a remote session with the vendor of the portal and the guy basically said yeah it has something to do with this .net framework and firefox. We know it worked on the older verison but we've never been able to get it to work in firefox. You'll have to use another browser or enter your domain credentials when you visit the site in firefox.

Does anyone know if there is some sort of under the hood tweak in firefox to get the NTLM passthrough to an IIS based .net 4.5 application like it does with .net 2.0? We would love to keep Firefox as our default browser but when we go live with this portal we may have to switch to Chrome.

To whom it may concern

I am testing the autoupdate on one of my vm`s and I cannot configure what we need.

Goal: - We would like to update firefox esr yearly with a package through sccm. - After installation or after first startup, firefox should imediately update to newest version - From then, firefox esr should installed newest version as soon as available and check daily for a new version


My Config:

// Enable updater lockPref("app.update.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.auto", true); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", true); lockPref("app.update.silent", true); lockPref("app.update.timerFirstInterval", 60); lockPref("app.update.promptWaitTime", 60); lockPref("app.update.download.backgroundinterval", 0); lockPref("app.update.doorhanger", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false);


The config file was implemented. I could see the changes in about:config, but if I today distribute version 78.7.1 with the above config file, firefox esr does not automatically update to the newest version 78.8.0. Only if I open the settings or the help about.

What am I missing? How can I achieve that firefox will update silently(without user intervention) imediately to newest version after install and update regularly to newest version?

I would like to get new security updates for Firefox, i dont have Internet connection so the updates must come in some other way.

is it possible to download updates somewhere and then place then on a share on a fileserver and then i can tell Firefox look for updates on this share instead of Internet.

I already use this technic for Windows Defender, i download the definition files and the enable a GPO that tell Defender that all updates are on a fileshare.

Can this be done in Firefox (or something similar?

Hope you understand what i am trying to achieve

We have Firefox deployed to hundreds of workstations in a domain environment. We would like to control local site data storage, such as setting the amount of local site data storage can be used, which sites can store local data, or just have Firefox delete site data when closed.

We use Firefox .cfg file to set different options, such as this: // Set cache size limit clearPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity") lockPref("browser.cache.disk.capacity", 10240);

But we cannot find an option to control site data. Is there any configuration for controlling local site data that we can deploy to all users/installations?

Thanks!

I've noticed this on a few workstations now that, after using FireFox ESR for period of time, it will pop up a new opportunity when the browser is first opened, offering an "Fresh" new update experience to the latest version of FireFox.

However in all cases so far when the user clicks to update, they have been updated to the rapid-release version of the program, and the "esr" portion is gone. Along with changed settings, etc. To answer what would seem obvious in every case: Automatic updating, and using a background service is already checked. The replaced browser was already on the latest release prior to the "update". How can this be changed?

Thank you.

Hi,

I've been researching this somewhat and I'm not exactly sure where/what the exact problem is to be honest. So far IE, Edge (new Chromium at least) and Chrome, with the add-on from Microsoft work fine and authentication properly with Conditional Access setup in an Azure environment but for some reason Firefox does not, you get "You can't get there from here" message.

Now from what I gather this is due to the way Conditional Access works and Firefox not being able to reply with the correct device authentication/ADAL when prompted for it. What I'm asking is, is this something that Mozilla can solve on their own or is this something that Microsoft has to work out on their end?

I'm fine with opening a bug report on Bugzilla but I wanted to dig a bit deeper and hopefully understand the issue at hand on this as to not waste developer(s) time if this is something that Microsoft should fix.

Good morning all

We are trying to put Firefox (already installed) as the default internet browser (currently IE 11) on our fleet of machines under Windows 7.

I found a Microsoft solution which consists of modifying two values ​​in the registry:

HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Associations \ UrlAssociations \ http (and https) at a minimum.

Concretely, the web shortcuts open well with Firefox, however when we go to menu, Firefox options, it is not considered as the default browser. (unhappy smiley: D)

And I don't want users to click on it themselves)

My question is the following, is there an easy way to change it to the default browser by GPO firefox? (which reproduces the click on this button)

Or a list of things to do in the registry to reproduce clicking on the button to set Firefox by default in the menu, options.

I did a regshot before and after clicking on this button, and compared, but it seems quite tedious to me (Keys added: 125, Values ​​added: 113, and some modified values)

Thank you in advance to all
