auscompgeek: I have a router that I used to be able to access with Firefox (via HTTPS), by telling Firefox to ignore the insecure key. That no longer works. So, not an exception per se, but I could bypass the warning. I get the same warning in Chrome, but I can bypass it there as well. Just another reason to give up on Firefox I guess.

hi, how do i fix (Error code: ssl_error_weak_server_cert_key) ?
MrJones
you most likely need to ask the server vendor to fix their ssl setup
linuxthefish
MrJones, it's an old IPMI controller so no support :/
MrJones
I don't think recent firefox versions still support old ciphers like that, so you're probably out of luck...
b0at
yeah, mozilla and google are blocking out insecure encryption without providing a way to override most of the time
keeping a portable/local install of a sufficiently old version of firefox or another browser is probably the way to go.
boot13
b0at: I find Chrome is still allowing me to get past the warnings, whereas Firefox isn't.
b0at
well, we'll see how they act when we hit 2017, which is when all this transitional behavior is supposed to be fully flipped
though mozilla's "let's encrypt" was also supposed to be launched last month on that timeline
gut
nono i think you are reading the calendar wrong
it's supposed to be launched next month
         

b0at
originally july
gut
no
oh
general availability was supposed to be September
satdav
gut: what for gut
gut
satdav: let's encrypt

hello
I want to know where does firefox puts it's plugins like the flash
I downloaded firefox for linux for the web but no where in the directory there is a plugin folder
b0at
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for system-installed and ~/.mozilla/plugins for user-installed, i think
Patero-ng
b0at: ow
b0at: is it mozilla extensions?
I can't find plugins directory on ~/.mozille
b0at
no, extensions are in the profile directory and handled within firefox.
you can create ~/.mozilla/plugins yourself
plugins are external programs embedded in a web page with a limited api: flash, vlc plugin, silverlight, java (not javascript)
Patero-ng
b0at: there is a firefox folder inside the mozilla one should I create the plugins directory inside mozilla or firefox
b0at
i think it goes in mozilla/, but let me check
Patero-ng
b0at: and waht about iceweasel does it uses the same firefox folders?
b0at
yeah, ~/.mozilla/plugins as a sibling directory of ~/.mozilla/firefox
i believe iceweasel does, yes. it doesn't significantly deviate from firefox code, it's mostly about branding and logos that it's named differently.
Patero-ng
yea I read something like that they both can't run at the same time lol
b0at
you could if they used different profiles and one of them is run with the "-no-remote" command-line argument
same as with the same or different regular firefox installations
just can't use the same profile at the same time
Patero-ng
b0at: ow
b0at: do you know about wine a bit?
b0at
only a little.
Patero-ng
b0at: get me out of this one.. how do you disable borders of windows from the window manager so I can play worms armageddon in full screen
I can't join #wine channel
b0at
their channel is #winehq
Patero-ng
ow
shurnormal
I remember that old meme with a two headed fox like cant run firefox theres anohter firefox running, is that constrain still in effect? I'd like to have two firefoxes one thru tor other one not. Can I do this? I can use chromium or rekonq, but sometimes I preferred just two foxes.

shurnormal: firefox -no-remote
shurnormal: You should use Tor Browser, though.

How does it beat just setting the socks5 proxy on iceweasel?
Peng
shurnormal: ...it's actually anonymous
shurnormal: Read the documentation. And perhaps look up EFF's Panopticlick.
shurnormal
¿ about as anonymous as setting the socks5 proxy?..
Peng
shurnormal: No. That's crappy and not very anonymous.
shurnormal
$ iceweasel -no-remote <----- still tries to attach to the existing process.
Peng
TBB actually does a good job.
shurnormal: Browsers are extremely identifiable, for example based on your screen size, and font rendering. TBB makes an effort to reduce this.
Read stuff.
