Where are web certificates for Firefox stored?
I ask because I have added some exceptions then later removed them in the Preferences -> Advanced -> Certificates, but it still allows them without asking me again
kbrosnan
Nikesh: in the profile folder -> help > troubleshooting info > open profile folder
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox#Files_and_folders_in_the_profile
Nikesh
kbrosnan: cert8.db ?
kbrosnan
i recall it being a combo of two files
Nikesh
Ah I see
kbrosnan
might be key3.db i forget look at the wiki
Nikesh
Thank you
OK, that seems to have worked.
At least I got rid of the exceptions, but my overall trouble is this: I have a vagrant machine running an nginx server with an RoR app. When I browse in Firefox to the app in gives many CORS errors. I have a web.crt that I tried adding to Firefox which specifies *.mydomain.xip.io but it still gives many errors
Morkim
hey, wanted to start tweaking with usercontent.css for firefox, any up to date documentation on this? All i can find is quite outdated
         

unicodesnowman
Morkim, the source code?
b0at
Morkim: userstyles.org may help, and the documentation for the @-moz-document declaration somewhere on developer.mozilla.org
Morkim
unicodesnowman, b0at , thx guys, looking at those atm. My only fear with userstyles is that stuff can be deprecated and it might be hard to find out, that's why I would prefer some kind of documentation
brosnan
Morkim: the only thing that may happen is the element id or class changes
Morkim
brosnan: okay thx

Hello! I'm facing a problem from a few days. IDK how on opening new tab, Mozilla always goes for ask.com. I changed it from about:config. But I have t do it everytime I open a new window. Please guide me how to get rid of it?
Cork
KamalKaur: about:config?filter=browser.newtab.url
KamalKaur
Yes, Cork I remove that URL to see only bank tab. But it is over ridden on every new window and is a temporary change
Cork
KamalKaur: so you have an extension that changes the value
KamalKaur
How comes?
Cork
cause you or an application on your system installed it?
KamalKaur
I mean, how to find what is doing it?
Cork
disable the extensions until the behavior stops
KamalKaur
oh
Cork
disable half, restart, test; disable half of the rest if the problem still exists
enable half of the one you disabled if it doesn
*'t
and so on
until you find the one causing it
KamalKaur
Okay..
Cork: So.. iLivid was causing it. Thanks a ton :D I was really annoyed
Cork
i bet
and np
KamalKaur

hi, can I completely disable FF's port banning rather than overriding ports one by one with network.security.ports.banned.override ?
Cork
anddam: have you tried setting network.security.ports.banned to ""?
         

anddam
no
Cork
not sure if it works, but it might
anddam
that's not even present
Cork
it is but hidden
create it as a string and leave it empty
anddam
done
"This address is restricted"
on port 6000
but port 4080 doesn't bother it at all
Safari and Chrome as well complain about 6000
Cork
ah, there it is...
http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/netwerk/base/nsIOService.cpp#83
and no, there isn't a way to not include those ports
after reading around some more the pref i pointed you to
lets you add EXTRA ports :/
so ya the only option is to define that complete list as banned.overrides
or to recompile firefox with the bannlist emptied
qstpp
how does Mozilla review proprietary add-ons when their code is not freely available?
auscompgeek
bit hard to make addons without disclosing any code :P
Cork
qstpp: the amo team has to get access to the source
though you can't really hide the code in addons
unless its binarry extensions (and those are deprecated)
its just zip files with js files in them
(and css and xul)
qstpp
auscompgeek: yeah :) but any is different from all code
Cork: didn't know about deprecating binary ones. that's good but what does then a proprietary license mean for some addons if they disclose all of the code?
Cork
qstpp: the license just means they can sue you if you use the code
it doesn't mean the code can't be visible
qstpp
Cork: don't find that very often. it's some hybrid between totaly proprietary and floss
thanks for clarifying!
zxd
Searched on google why firefox ocassionaly start displaying black boxes
anddam
Cork: that somehow makes me boil in rage
Cork: thanks for explaining it
zxd
it starts happening on facebook
anddam
I'll move port ranges
Cork
zxd: sounds like a gpu/gpu driver bug
zxd
Cork: but why only in firefox
Cork
zxd: browsers has quite long lists of blacklist and workarounds for gpu bugs
so ya, what happens differ between browsers
ace-beta
hi
anybody have a problem with google apis?
I think that google is blocking firefox request during various seconds

hi
If I use a self-signed certificate, I manually check the fingerprint to accept it in firefox. But any CA can expose another certificate (valid, since this is a CA) for my personal website, firefox won't warn me at all. Is it possible to say "I accept this certificate that I manually checked and only this one"?
so that firefox warns me if the certificate change

hi, is there official support for touchscreens on firefox (on linux)?
PaulePanter
Hi. 42,29% 42,04% iceweasel libxul.so [.] proceedWithFOFB
& is the `perf report` output (top line) when Firefox 31.7.0.
Any idea, what that is?
auscompgeek
spacepluk: touchscreen support on linux is... nonexistent
spacepluk
auscompgeek: it works pretty well on chrome though
auscompgeek
spacepluk: & except when it doesn't
spacepluk
auscompgeek: :? everything I'm using on my computer works with the touchscreen except for firefox
auscompgeek
spacepluk: more often than not, chromium refuses my touchscreen altogether
it works well in chromium... when it works
spacepluk
I see, it seems to be working just fine here
but I prefer firefox
auscompgeek
I have Grab and Drag installed in Firefox to make up for the lack of touchscreen support
it's not too bad
spacepluk
auscompgeek: I tried that, but then you can't select text
auscompgeek
spacepluk: double-click and it'll temporarily disable
