I would like to know about changing some security settings in about:config.

Right now in about:config the line [security.OCSP.require;false], and line[services.sync.prefs.sync.security.OCSP.require;false] are set to false.

Would I have better browser security if these two line were set to 'true'?

Are there other security changes I could make in about:config that would result in better security.

Firefox says:

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (osu) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

I have the program osu installed on my computer. How do I make the address in Firefox redirect to the osu program?

I am experiencing a weird issue almost every time I open a new tab in Firefox (and very often after opening new sites or switching tabs). There are small black rectangles visible all over the site, mostly under text fields. Suggestions under address bar are also affected. The issue occurs on two separate computers I own (Lenovo Ideapad 700 laptops) both under Win7 and Win10. Usually the artefacts disappear after scrolling or selecting anything on the website. Graphic drivers have been updated in the meantime, it did not resolve the issue. Has anybody experienced similar issues? Any way to fix this?

The only add-on that doesn't break is ironically an older version of the Pocket app that isn't supported by Firefox. All but that one and Tabs Mix Plus are broken the majority of the time I start Firefox. Versions 50.1.0

Well, so, as I was typing this, they've all suddenly started to work, in the same session of Firefox. Does anyone know what is causing this?

Does anyone know what date the ESR which allows plugins like Java will be available until?

Alternatively, I know IE has no plans to remove plugins but are there any alternative channels that I could pursue ?

Hello Techies, facts are these: Firefox + HTTPS Everywhere on Linux, updated once a day. I connect to my webmail, Yahoo.com, and often the padlock turns to grey+orange triangle. But https is still present in the URL bar (by the way, I've set browser.urlbar.trimURLs to false). So I try and refresh page (F5), positive result only every now and then. I tried and switched to Basic display (I guess it should be lighter), positive result only every now and then. I feel I can't do anything to fix this annoying and weird lack of security. This "instable green" only occours connecting to Yahoo. When I connect to Facebook, GMail, YouTube or whatever I do NOT have problems at all. No difference using a normal, super updated session rather than a Live one (as I'm doing right now). I've written to Yahoo Help Community to explain as above and I was told it depends on the way Firefox "sees" Yahoo, and to ask You. Thanks a lot... To me it actually IS a Yahoo problem (not the first time, though...), but still I ask you whether you can suggest how to fix the problem or you know more about it. Many thanks and best regard.

I need a sanity check.

I'm trying to lock down Firefox in Windows and Linux. I'm following the instructions to create local-settings.js and mozilla.cfg files. Right now, I'm working on just changing the default webpage. I'll screw things up later once I get past this hurdle. I'm currently working on a 2012 Server but I'm pretty sure I can replicate the issue on my RH 6 box.

The issue is when I create these 2 files and put them in the defaults/pref directory (which is what is referenced in my security paper and research on the intarwebs) it doesn't work. But if I copy the files to the install directory for Firefox, they do. Normally, this would be fine but this deviates from the security paper I have to follow to check the contents of the file and I don't want to have to explain the issue or get dinged. Are the locations correct or do I need to keep them in the defaults/pref and if I do, why do the same files error in one directory but not in another?

Thank you for your assistance. Peace

local-settings.js

Strange new problem w. firefox. Click on "bookmark this page."

My subject folders/names appear EXCEPT that the top one has a lined box next to the folder icon and instead of the actual folder name, it has another name (in this case, "video" which is the name of one of my already existing folders).

With the box & the name inside of it, it looks as if it is a blank box waiting for me to enter a name, but it's already got "video" written in for me.

In any case, as I use the slider to scroll down thru my bookmarks, the name "video" follows along, overlaying each of the existing folder name in turn.

In other words, if my first bookmarks folder is titled "audio," when I go to bookmark my page, the word "video" appears in place of "audio." As I scroll down, "video" moves as well and appears instead of each successive folder name.

If I park the current page in one of those folders...say, "music" (even though "video" appears in place of "music)" and then access my bookmarks from the upper toolbar, scroll down to the folder where I parked my page ("music," in this example), there it is....in the folder with the correct name..."music."

Once that's done and I want to go to the site again via my bookmark, I simply go to the original folder ("music") and there it is. No moving "video" in sight.
