A couple versions back, I started getting this pop-up message each morning, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". I downloaded a newer version and upgraded manually a couple times, now up to 70.0, and the pop-up keeps happening. I see a couple other people have reported a similar problem, one here was blown off because they were, supposedly, running a beta version. I'm not running beta. The other one I found was fixed by doing something to the registry, but I'm on Linux, not MS Windows so there's no registry (at least none that I know about).

The one other symptom I've noticed is that when I bring up the "About Firefox" window, it takes a really long time to figure out that "Firefox is up to date". And it always says it's up to date (if I wait long enough) even when there's a newer version available.

It would be greatly helpful if that pop-up would say *why* it couldn't update itself but it does not give any useful information.

Thanks for any help on this.

There used to be a button in the toolbar which let you see the RSS feed for a site, then it got removed but you could add it back through the customization menu. Now I can't seem to even do that.

I guess that Firefox used the RSS button for its live bookmarks feature, and since they removed the live bookmarks they seem to have also removed the button? I only ever used the button to get the feed addresses though, so I could paste them into my RSS reader. So... if I could get the button back it would be great. Otherwise, maybe there's a plugin which does the same thing?

My site uses a template engine to wrap standard page HTML around templates that contain only the body text. However utf-8 multibyte characters are displayed correctly if there is no HTML header but incorrectly if the standard page header, which explicitly specifies utf-8 encoding, is presented to Firefox.

https://www.jamescobban.net/templates/Articles/FrenchOccupations.html is the template of the body text https://www.jamescobban.net/displayPage.php?template=Articles/FrenchOccupations has the HTML header and footer wrapped around it. You can look at it yourself, but to save time the header added by displayPage is:

   
   
      
        <title>
	    ...text extracted by DisplayPage from the h1 tag...
        </title>

I have been looking at using MEGA as an alternative platform for cloud storage & sharing files. MEGA also offer a browser extension for Firefox which is available here: https://mega.nz/extensions

What I wanted to know is if this extension is available to download from Firefox Add-ons, if it is not can anyone tell me if it is safe to install from mega.nz

I would much sooner install it from Firefox Add-ons if possible.

Many thanks for listening and for any advice that anyone can offer.

I cannot access a clients site that I'm working on due to an HSTS error, I used to be able to bypass this with test.currentTimeOffsetSeconds, however it seems to not work anymore.

I use Firefox for development because it has better tools than any browser I've use in the past, however this is a real blocker for me, since the sites I'm working on don't have DNS names yet and can't get updated certificates till then.

I've also manually added an exception in the certificate options, though that also didn't work.

Please guys, I've always been pushing people to use Firefox, though if it starts limiting my options without any way to bypass it if I feel I need to do something, then I'll be forced to go hunting for a browser that gives me more freedom, not to mention this is costing me work hours.

Hi,

I have a spr532 card reader with a test smartcard with Firefox 50.1.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 up to date. I want to use the client certificate from the device to log in on a website that I am developing.

I also have a test certificate that I generated and it is not on the card. I can log in with the test certificate that I have but not with the one on the card. The problem is that in the "User identification request" page I cannot see the certificate from the smartcard. I can see my generated certificate but not the one on the smartcard. Firefox asks me for the pins for the smartcard (I have two certs on the card and they both have PINs). Firefox sees my certs from the smartcard in about:preferences#advanced > View Certificates > Your Certificates column. I have both the certs on the smartcard and the one I generated in that table. But when I try to log in, Firefox only shows me my generated cert and not the one from the smartcard.

What can I do? How can I debug this? This is a dev environment. I can change any configs on the server so I can decrypt the TLS session and see what is going on between my server and the browser.

PS: I tried to send this message with 2 other email accounts but I do not get the confirmation email.

Thank you!
