I'm using firefox for windows 7. My firefox now has version 41.0.1. This problem, however, was happened in older versions too.

When I visit https://www.google.com/, then drop down the menu [Tools]-->[Page Info]-->click the [Security] icon-->click the [View Certificate] button. In the Cerftificate Viewer dialog, click the [Details] tab and it will show the Certificate Hierarchy tree. The tree shows like below:

 GeoTrust Global CA <- Google Internet Authority G2 <- google.com

But when I use "openssl.exe s_client" command to test www.google.com:https, it shows below hierarchy:

 Equifax Secure Certificate Authority <- GeoTrust Global CA <- Google Internet Authority G2 <- www.google.com

Does it mean that the certificate "GeoTrust Global CA" is still a intermediate certificate which is issued by Equifax but firefox think it is a root CA ?

I checked the public key of the certificates "GeoTrust Global CA" retrieved from both firefox and openssl, and they are the same as below:


BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----

MIIBIjANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAAOCAQ8AMIIBCgKCAQEA2swYYzD99BcjGlZ+W988 bDjkcbd4kdS8odhM+KhDtgPpTSEHCIjaWC9mOSm9BXiLnTjoBbdqfnGk5sRgprDv gOSJKA+eJdbtg/OtppHHmMlCGDUUna2YRpIuT8rxh0PBFpVXLVDviS2Aelet8u5f a9IAjbkU+BQVNdnARqN7csiRv8lVK83Qlz6cJmTM386DGXHKTubU1XupGc1V3sjs 0l44U+VcT4wt/lAjNvxm5suOpDkZALeVAjmRCw7+OC7RHQWa9k0+bw8HHa8sHo9g OeL6NlMTOdReJivbPagUvTLrGAMoUgRx5aszPeE4uwc2hGKceeoWMPRfwCvocWvk +QIDAQAB

Maybe this is a bug that firefox will miss the intermediate certificate when it encounter the circumstances like above.

I take care of 5 systems for this household. Two Windoze 10, one Vista, and two Ubuntu 14.04.

We currently use SeaMonkey, but Sync (ESSENTIAL to us) hasn't worked for literally years, and other things are dragging, including requests for help and info.

My real questions are: 1) Is sync currently working well? 2) Is there anything in the crystal ball that might hamper or destroy sync in ANY foreseeable future? 3) Four of the five systems are 64 bit, one is 32 bit. The Ubuntu systems are one each 32 and 64 bit.

  • A) I presume 64 and 32 bit installations get along together, and have transparent user interfaces as to bitness. Is this true?
  • B) Are there both 64 bit and 32 bit Ubuntu installations?
  • C) Besides bitness, what are the differences between the 32 and 64 bit versions?

4) I guess all the synced items will transfer to FireFox from SeaMonkey?

5) What other problems might I encounter with FireFox that I don't see in SeaMonkey?

6) Is FireFox planned to be supported indefinitely?

Thanks!

I have no problems with the same version installed on my laptop. Any help/suggestions would be much apprciated. Thanks.

Hi all,

I will unfortunately soon lose the ability to use Firefox at work because my company's IT department don't want to support it anymore as we upgrade to Windows 10.

So, I will have to use either IE, Edge or Chrome. Ideally I would like an extension which I can use to connect one of these browsers (probably Chrome) to Firefox, but since that doesn't exist the next best thing is to be able to manually "sync" things.

First, how do I view the synced content for my Firefox Account in a web page? Is there a way to access it from https://accounts.firefox.com/settings

Second, how to I add things to this?

Mainly I am interested in syncing tabs. Browser history would also be useful but I can see how this could be very difficult. Bookmarks would be an alternative method of syncing history.

Thanks :)

Long time user (15-20 yrs?), I have been avoiding the "next" upgrade for several years for various reasons (hate change, fave add-ons go away, hate change, not broke-don't fix, hate change...). But I am now running into a few websites that won't permit this browser, so it may be time to move on. With heavy adblocking and tracker-blocking and my benign web browsing habits, I've not been concerned about security (never had a virus in 20 years - knock wood). It's just full functionality and slowness at this point. At this point, I see even my Classic Theme Restorer is no longer available, so I'll just have to bite the bullet on aesthetics and deal with a modern browser. However, a couple of things are unclear:

1. does 20 years of bookmark history (and remembered history) affect memory footprint. I only refer to existing bookmarks occasionally these days and may consider a full purge. Partial purge would probably be too time-consuming. Maybe even a full profile purge might be worthwhile for a true clean slate. Maybe FF has come a long way and old extensions and settings won't be necessary. I also have several about: settings that I may (or may not?) miss.

2. Are automatic updates unavoidable in newer versions? I read about "manual" but it sounded temporary.

3. The permissions on many potential add-ons I've looked at are quite unnerving... e.g many of them require full access to ALL my data (usernames and passwords!!!) and I know the function has no need for such. Who has time to investigate these fully for safety? Is there any anti-malware vetting required for add-ons to be available?

4. I know newer is generally faster, but FF has a history of growing and slowing down after upgrades. My hardware isn't getting any newer (although its more than ample for my current needs), but software tends to be developed on latest and greatest hardware. How does latest FF compare to circa V41 in memory usage?


In any case, I thought I would give the latest vesion a whirl on my old Vista laptop (which is currently at V43) and check it out before plunging in on my W7 work PC or home PC. Any answers or insight into such a big jump are much appreciated.

I've selected in the update tab under the advanced options to never check for updates, none of which I will ever want to download, never had the Maintenance Service installed, and also confirmed that the values of such preferences of "app.update.auto, app.update.enabled, app.update.silent" are set to false in about:config as I was told they should be. Yet, EVERY time I open Firefox, Firefox automatically tries to update itself, prompting User Account Control to ask my permission for Firefox to make changes (the upgrade) to my computer. I do not want to have to click no every time I'm asked this because Firefox tries to update itself WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. What can I do to stop this?

I keep an archive of profile backups on an external hard drive. The backups are compressed, and I usually include the version of Firefox last used by the (principle) profile in the compressed archive filename (e.g., userinfo-firefox-56.0_date). I also make a semi-regular sync backup of the currently used profile. So far, so good.

My currently synced backup, which has not been compressed and archived, is about a month old. (I did say semi-regular.) I would like to compress and archive it before syncing, but I am no longer sure of the exact version of Firefox it used. I usually run updates when released, and can suppose Firefox 65.x, but what if I would like to be more exact? After running a search of files containing "version" in the main profile, I came across a file named compatibility.ini, which resides in the root directory. The contents are as follows:

[Compatibility] LastVersion=65.0.1_20190211233335/20190211233335 LastOSABI=WINNT_x86_64-msvc LastPlatformDir=C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox LastAppDir=C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser

Is this a reliable way to detect the last version of Firefox used by the profile?
