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.

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!

Our security area will not open the entire download area, so we are looking for the specific URL or web address that is needed so we can still auto-update clients.

But none of them locked or changed the settings for the user. Is this a known problem or are there any other settings, which affect the cookiesettings?

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

Some years ago I pointed my Firefox cache drive to H:\Firefox. When I updated to 68esr I set the value in the GPO to the same folder. about:config shows the preference as locked.

Recently I decided to move the cache folder to the same drive as the profile folder. So I edited the group policy to point to F:\users\Tanya\Firefox. Updated the group policy and opened firefox. It continued to use H:\Firefox.

So set the policy to not configured and about:config showed h:\firefox. So as a test I set the group policy to iamcountessconsuelabananahammock (Not even a valid path name). No complaints, but firefox continued to write to h:\firefox.

So it seems the only purpose of the group policy is to lock the value, and the content of the GPO is not relevant at all. Is this by design

We have three 2012 R2 terminal servers with about 75 users. Disk space for local windows profiles has recently gotten short and while investigating I found nearly all users have a default Firefox profile and then seven default-release-1 (1-7). Each of these files is from 165mb to 1GB in size so I estimate each user has 3GB of space used by old profiles. This times 75 user that is 225GB of wasted space on each terminal server!

Why is the one 64bit Firefox install creating some many profiles?

Also, is there any way to limit cache file storage. Personally, I've never noticed any performance difference in a 25meg vs 250 meg cache allocation and the impact on space with many users is considerable.

Thanks

We just upgraded to windows 10 and it has been a rocky road to normalcy. My IT department uses Quest for everything. Quest SMA and SDA along with Desktop Authority. The CIO decided they didn't like Edge and wanted to move to a new browser. They did this 2 days before we go live. The question is how do i make firefox import the Bookmarks. So many articles say try the adm admx files. Tried that..failed. They create a registry entry for it but there not used. I tried finding the file location but firefox has some odd profile naming that changes the folder name. That and the location from the articles doesn't have the file it says to open. As of now I am just lost. I'm not sure how to complete this task of adding bookmarks or the Home Page. I was able to get them setup as the default browser but without the bookmarks or favorite its all moot. We have over 300 users and they are about 3 weeks away from coming back to work. I need a solution or i will have to force them to use Edge(no one wants that even web sites hate edge.). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

We have some trouble with Firefox in Windows Roaming Profiles: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional". The sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal are shown but they are fully inaccessible from CSC (client offline cache). Why does Firefox need to store this temp files in %appdata%? That's really bad design! sqlite-shm and sqlite-wal should be located in %localappdata%.

My solution is to just copy the profile folder, ignoring the inaccessible files. Then I just need to rename it to the original folder name and ff starts just fine. Does anyone know anything more to this problem? Thank you

I am attempting to setup Mozilla for enterprise version 81.0 (x64) to deploy through Intune and update the previous versions on our client laptops. I set up Intune with the following detection rule(attached). The idea is that Intune looks for this registry key and if its not at version 81.0 it pushes out the updated MSI file. What happens so far is that when I have a older version installed such as 74.0. Intune DOESN'T push out the update. However when I completely remove Firefox within minutes Intune detects that its not installed and pushes out the current version. Therefore it would appear that the detection rule works but not as intended. A attempted to adjust the value on the detection rule with no success. The original detection rule was to detect a file inside program files\mozilla firefox. However that rule would not detect the current version installed.

Any ideas would be helpful.

2. I was also thinking using Windows cert store. I imported certifacete to Windows and set flag security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true in about:config. But firefox is not using it. However Edge is working just fine.

Only way i was able to get website working so far is manualy importing that certificate via Firefox GUI.

Which way should I go? And do you have any tips how to get it working? Thanks a lot.
