I downloaded Firefox 50 via the built in update. When I hit restart to install the update, I get a window saying that Firefox wants to install a "new helper tool" and that I need to enter an admin password to complete the update. I can't find anything about this "helper tool" in the release notes or through a google search. I was wondering just what is it? Running OSX 10.11.16. Thanks.

Yesterday I've got a report from one company about Firefox update being blocked by their firewall. Once it's on, the update fails. Turning it off fixes the update problem, but also open their network, which is not desired. I advised to whitelist domains mentioned in article https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Setting_up_an_update_server (aus2.mozilla.org and download.mozilla.org), but seems it did not help. Firefox update still failed with "Update failed" message. So what servers Firefox needs access to during the update process so they can whitelist them?

EDIT: Just to add, before whitelisting the mentioned domain, Firefox won't be able to even find the update. Now the update if found, but fails when downloading.

Hello,

I use firefox for work and use only certain sites and this message is really annoying, especially for intranet sites. So, I really want to know how to totally disable this security type of checks.

I already spent to much time and this, I don't want to do debugging or stuff like that, I just want to totally disable any check for "untrusted sites" and yes I am fully aware of the dangers, attacks etc.

And actually I find it quite annoying that Firefox blocks me from accesing something I want. Warnings are OK, but totally blocking me, not even "I understand this, add exception ... bla bla" is not kosher.( the error is sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Thank you.

When developing JavaScript, I tend to generate a lot of logging output. In newer version of Firefox the buffer of the console window seems to be very small, so that most of my logs are being lost.

How can I increase the buffer size of the console? To be honest, I think this should be in the preferences menu.

Hello. I want to install Firefox ESR on top of my current installation, but what will change when I do so? What is different in ESR?

See, I have downgraded to FF 40 due to extension/add-on problems with FF 42, but I don't want an unsafe/unstable browser. ESR was recommended, but I'm confused about it. Will all my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc. remain the same? Is there a different updating schedule, and how does it work? I really need some help here.

I understand that most people are chasing and stuck with the limitations of using I-Pads (Idiot-Pads) with only two thumbs - LOL! However we use multiple displays (sometimes 2, 4 or 6 simultaneous displays depending on a client's needs) and it is desirable to NOT have the TAB function activated. There is nothing more annoying than to have a tab open every time a download is done or an app wants (immediate!) attention. It was (tab interruption) nice to (tab interruption) have (tab interruption) been able (tab interruption) to have (tab interruption) a new (tab interruption) window open and (tab interruption) to stop all (tab interruption) tabs from opening. Annoying isn't it? The "Tabs Feature" is more annoying than having spam popping up!!! We expect your product to be better than "Explorer" not the same or worst! We generally use Apple (for artistic graphics), Microsoft (for "Windows exclusive" business programs) and Linux (for Internet security) systems on various machines so we get to compare what everybody has created. We never use Linux "Unity" because it is worse than the Apple and Windows Desktops! We are not "Idiot-Pad/Phone" (oops - I-Pad/Phone) users! We are systematically migrating our clients away from Apple and Windows as Linux software improves in functionality and compatibility and provides CHOICES! Thank you

these are the config entries in question: browser.tabs.animate browser.fullscreen.animate

I used to be able to click MP3 files, way back when, and Firefox would ask where I wanted to save them. Nowadays it opens a new tab with a flash player. Clicking on 'unknown' files, like .sid, .prg, .zip, .rar pops up 'This is a BIN file. [Cancel] [Save]'. It does not give me a checkbox for 'always do this'. I would like the option to edit so that some file types, such as PDF, regardless of mimetype, always get opened in a new tab if clicked. Also some file types, based on extension, always go directly to 'Where do you want to save the file?' dialog box, regardless if there's a builtin player or viewer or not. In my Firefox (41.0.1 Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32-bit) I never get the 'do this for these files always' choice anymore. Googling led me to delete my mimeTypes.rdf file, and since then even 'well known' file extensions, like .zip, are treated as BIN files and I get the Cancel-or-Save box for those, too - again without the choice to 'always save BIN files'.

Our streaming audio service has been using Adobe Flash Player since 2007. With the February 2015 release of Firefox 36 many of our customers (Windows and Mac) are seeing our Flash player hang indefinitely at "Trying connection on port 1935". In somecases reinstalling Adobe Flash Player will fix this; in other cases reinstalling Firefox will fix this; in several cases only allowing incoming connections on port 1935 (new firewall rule) will fix this.

What happened? A lot of our customers use Firefox and suddenly no joy.

Thank you!

Hello, I want to prevent third parties accessibility services to enter my browser. But the way this checkboix is formulated confuses me. If I check the box 'prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' is it then enabled or disabled? What are the accessibility services here? I read all the instructions but still find it a confusing sentence to check or uncheck?

Should I read the sentence as "prevent Firefox Accessibility Service from accessing your browser'? Or should I read it as "prevent any type of physical impairment assistive software from accessing your browser?

Hope you could help me with this. And if so it could be nice to make this sentence a bit clearer. Or maybe I'm just a bit confused and you should just leave it like this;)

Best,

I wish to configure my Firefox so that it will cache everything and keep this cache, so that when I restart Firefox and am offline, it loads everything from cache and displays fully loaded websites, even though I am offline.

Only when I try to access a not yet opened website or force reload of a website, it shall try to get things from the Internet and fail, since I am offline.

What settings are needed for this to work?

I usually start Firefox continuing my last session, so it feels like a huge waste to reload everything, mostly websites that do not change much anyway. It would be nice to have them display instantly, because everything is already on my local machine and on top be able to read all the websites I already loaded offline, since everything is cached.

I got one of those pop ups, your FF is loading slow, so I said ok, then kicked me into updating sync... I had trouble logging in change my PW twice, and it worked once then not again. Soooo, questions are: 1) are firefox account and sync account the same? 2) do they have different pws? 3) do I log out of them separately or together?

4) how do I tell if I am in new Sync or old. [first time I tried there was no "disconnect" on my sync page]

Once I get accounts and PWs straightened out, I'll be back with more questions.

Sorry to be critical, but I think many of the faq and help pages are close to worthless. They are carrying too many assumptions about what you already know if you ask a question. One solution, ANYTHING mentioned [e.g. sync, account, logon, usename, etc] should have a <learn more> link.

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.
