Hi,

I'm used to deploying/configuring Firefox in an organization with settings in autoconfig.js, etc. Recently, I've seen that some settings are honored, others aren't, so I started using policies.json as well as keeping my autoconfig.js. Can they work together?

In any case, I am unable to disable app update with either of them. I have the following in policies.json:

{

   "policies": {

"DisableFirefoxAccounts": true, "DisablePocket": true,

       "DisableAppUpdate": true,

"DontCheckDefaultBrowser": true, "DNSOverHTTPS": { "Enabled": false }, "Certificates": { "ImportEnterpriseRoots": true } "PopupBlocking": { "Allow": ["http://10.215.144.56:8080", "https://intranet.mydomain.org"], "Default": true | false, "Locked": true | false }

   }

}

I'm also showing a snippet of my autoconfig.js file:

lockPref("app.update.auto", false); lockPref("app.update.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.mode", 0); lockPref("app.update.service.enabled", false); lockPref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); lockPref("app.update.url", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.details", ""); lockPref("app.update.url.manual", ""); lockPref("signon.rememberSignons", false); lockPref("extensions.update.enabled", false);

The problem is that when I start Firefox 78.3.0 ESR and go to the about Firefox window, I can see that the app update is not disabled.

How can I make sure that all the above settings in autoconfig.js are actually honored?

Thanks

I have a question about Lockwise and the integration of Monitor.

It is claimed that since version 76, Firefox alerts for vulnerable passwords and breaches.

In this article it is explained that Lockwise scans the stored passwords and warns if one of the passwords is identical to one leaked online as well as that it shows breach alerts for sites that have experienced security breaches.

I have Firefox 79, but I don't seem to get either behavior. I can see breaches for my email addresses in Monitor (where I had to manually add the email addresses). But I don't see anything in Lockwise. See the image below, for example. I created a password "abcde" for the website and nowhere does firefox tell me it's "vulnerable" or that it's been exposed elsewhere (it should at least say it's a terribly bad password).

I entered the "abcde" password in the Bitwarden plugin and it tells me (unsurprisingly) the password has been exposed "46564 times in data breaches".

This brings me to a second question: If Lockwise is unable to automatically show a warning if a password has been exposed/is vulnerable, is there an easy way to check that manually (and securely)? Bitwarden has the checkmark button right next to the password, which allows me to quickly check if a password has been exposed. Any way to replicate this in Lockwise? (To be honest, I would prefer the way it is supposed to work in Lockwise with a banner been shown automatically, instead of manually having to click, but it doesn't seem to work.)

When I visit the pharmacy section of CVS.com and click on any of the drop down selections, nothing happens. With chrome I don't have a problem. When I chose Inspect Element on an item, a reference to javascript is highlighted, and javascript in enabled in the config. This is the case on both my Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 machines. So I'm wondering what it could be.

Possible coincidence, but suspicious! Re: Firefox 81 [from the 100s of ‘hits’ I see here now, likely a Ffx bug]

Written from wife’s PC since mine is now crippled. I upgraded to Firefox 81 on my own PC, reluctantly, for “security” fixes, NOT for the big new feature I don’t want. Last night I downloaded v. 81 then closed Ffx and shut down the PC late at night. (It runs Win 7 with all the relevant updates I know.)

Today after booting, it showed my normal desktop. But my email app (located on D: drive) would not open either from shortcut or from Programs menu. Same for all the other apps I tried to open, even on C: drive, including ms_Office. Almost any app would bring up “server execution failed.”

Now, after a few hours on “Sleep” then reopening: --Nothing but a black screen (w/cursor) for 5-10 minutes anyway; --Later a plain blue screen, in small type on lower right: “Windows 7 build [no.] / “This copy … not genuine” –although it came installed, straight from Dell!

I hope mozilla can help cure this in its paralyzed state – and get me back to v. 80.0.1 that worked!

Hi,

Je n'ai pas trouvé dans About:Config une option pour revenir au fonctionnement précédent avec les options fermer les onglets Fermer les onglets directement accessibles comme c'est toujours le cas dans Chrome (Voir PJ).

J'utilise beaucoup ces options et je déplore d'avoir à passer par un menu intermédiaire.

the Adobe Acrobat extension stopped working. So I uninstalled it thinking I could find it on the list of add-ons and then reinstall it. However, apparently that's not the way this works. So I tried installing an upgraded version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, but the extension was not reinstalled in the process. I talked to the Adobe Acrobat help folks and they said that I have to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm very worried about this because I have so many specific settings set up in Firefox and I don't want to lose any of those. Is there another workaround?

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.
