hi folks, I have a private certificate to log into a site but firefor does not seem to use it. "certutil -K" lists the certificate, but the firefox certificate window does not. any idea where I need to look?

Does anyone know of a firefox extension that will save/load groups of tabs, including their history from files?
Roey
hello. Is Panorama OpenGL accelerated (I think not?)
llamapixel
Tab grenade perhaps tlolczyk
Roey
what's that
llamapixel
Saves tabs to a file etc
Roey
llamapixel: oh how lovely
thanks, I looked it up.

How do I get thunderbird to stop alerting me for messages in my junk folder?
auscompgeek
b0at: ... there is no firefox .deb
please, stop spreading misinformation
         

Roey
hello. Is Tab Groups/Panorama OpenGL accelerated (I think not? when would it be, then?)
tanath
auscompgeek, says the guy who says there's no firefox deb package
there's lots of them :P
many distros have one
auscompgeek
tanath: I believe b0at was referring to a mozilla build .deb, which there is none
tanath
i think he was referring to the one for the distro being used
auscompgeek
then you're not reading his message properly :P
tanath
disagree: " from a mozilla.org repo OR download its .deb"
auscompgeek
"then you might need to get a mozilla build of firefox, from a mozilla.org repo or download its .deb"
(mozilla build) AND (from mozilla.org OR download .deb)
anyway, EME doesn't exist on Linux (yet), so b0at is still spreading horrible misinformation
tanath
fair enough

Hello, we are running an microsoft remote desktop services farm with about 200 users, and we'd like to deploy firefox to our users. The deployment part is taken care of, however, we'd like to automatically import all bookmarks from chrome to firefox silently upon first run, without user interference. Is this possible?
XXCoder
Hubbeh
XXCoder: yeah i saw that, was hoping for a different solution tho. Just a shame that firefox doesnt have native support for GPOs =/.. Thanks
Cork
Hubbeh: there's been a bug about implementing it for ages, but quite low interest
XXCoder
okay :) its surpising often people ask without googlefirst though lol
Hubbeh
Cork: yeah, i'm guessing firefox will get an large increase of users now, due to the java block update chrome recently released, maybe it will get a bit more attention now. :P - XXCoder yeah i've spent a couple of hours googling the issue, but resorted to ask here since i could not find a solution dated 2015 :P
Cork
Hubbeh: mozilla blocks java all the time too
Hubbeh: AND mozillas plan is for phasing out plugins too
so i don't think it is going to change things much in the long run
Hubbeh: anyway https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=267888
Hubbeh
Cork: yeah but you can allow it, chrome doesnt even give you an option to enable it. Really? Maybe we have to stick with IE :'(
Cork
Hubbeh: currently ya
but like i said, in the long run mozilla plan on dropping nsapi, without a replacement (except javascript and web standards)
         

Hubbeh
Have they released a date when they will go live with that plan Cork ?
Cork
no
it is a "we want to get here"
so more a goal then a plan
Hubbeh
yeah, it's a shame that our company depends on a few but crucial systems, that uses java.. Oh well, i suppose we have to re-think our plan of attack to manage this. Thanks for the info!
Cork
though they have already moved to removing support for legacy extensions
(in ff40 i think it was)
Hubbeh: and java is already a small enough market that it won't be able to keep nsapi around
Hubbeh: the big player that keeps nsapi around is flash
XXCoder
flashs dying hard now
Cork
so when the web moves video to <video> and the rest of flash to svg and canvas
i would guess nsapi is on a thin thread
and yes flash is dying fast
amazon has moved to bad flash ads in there ad system a few weeks ago for example
uh... ban not bad...
XXCoder
sure move to bad flash ads ;)
Cork
so i would guess at nsapi having at top 2 years of life
XXCoder
hit the monkey :P
Cork
(so end of 2017)
protn
hey people
I use Firefox on windows and it wont allow me to use flash
how do I fix it?
its windows server 2012
Cork
protn: you need to install the nsapi version of flash
auscompgeek
of course, a different solution could be to just not use flash, especially on a server
protn
nsapi how?
:)
Cork
protn: visit getflash.com with firefox
and it will give you the none activex version
chotaz`w
Is it possible to run firefox-dev and standard editions concurrently?
at the same time*
protn
ool
cool
domain for sale
Cork:
Cork
chotaz`w: yes
chotaz`w: firefox-dev explicitly use a separate profile folder for this exact reason
O_o
chotaz`w
Cork, I keep getting a "firefox is already running" popup
Cork
chotaz`w: hmm you shouldn't get that...
are you sure your not starting firefox-dev twice?
(or the standard browser)
chotaz`w
I've had firefox-dev installed via repos, then switched to the regular version, now I downloaded the -dev .tar, extracted it and when trying to run, I get the darn popup
Cork
protn: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
they appear to have dropped the old domain (haven't used flash in years)
chotaz`w: well the repo might have done something, donno
but firefox dev, from mozilla is explicitly using a different profile location to not trigger that effect
(though you can still start separate profiles independently with the old commandline option -no-remote -p or -profile)
chotaz`w
Cork, -p worked just fine, I might have to take a look at where the two versions are trying to pick up the profiles from.
protn
Cork does not work
yet to work, after install flash does not activate itself on FF
Cork
have you made sure you got the "flash for mozilla" or what ever they call it?
cause if you have the one for ie, you won't get it to work
protn
re checking
works now
ty
Cork
O_o
