#StackBounty: #google-chrome #ssl #firefox #windows-10 #wireshark SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable doesn't populate any text file

Bounty: 100

My operating system is Windows 10 64 bits. I use the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome.

I want to save the pre-master keys in order to use them with WireShark.

For this, I have found many tutorials that all recommend using the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable.

However, no matter the path I put in this variable, no file is being created by Firefox (normal and developer editions) or Chrome. This is true even when I restart those browsers or the operating system. This is also true when I clear the cache on the browsers.

I found an alternative way of setting the SSLKEYLOGFILE variable with Chrome by launching the browser with the following argument:

--ssl-key-log-file=PATH

And while this argument does create a log file, it is never populated. It remains completely empty.

What makes this problem even more annoying is that I don’t know if there’s any debug log that would at least let me know what’s happening.

Anyone have ideas on how to solve this issue?

#StackBounty: #windows-10 #firefox #bookmarks Cannot bookmark pages in Firefox

Bounty: 50

I have Firefox ESR 60.8 on Windows 10. In the bookmarks toolbar, I see some bookmarks that were synchronized from another computer through my Firefox web account. But, I cannot make any changes to my bookmarks:

  • I cannot bookmark new pages. Clicking the “bookmark” star does nothing – the star remains white instead of becoming yellow as it should.
  • I cannot even move bookmarks in the existing bookmark toolbar.
  • When I change bookmarks in the other computer, the changes do not synchronize to this computer.

What I tried:

  • Refresh Firefox;
  • Start in safe mode;
  • Delete the file “xulstore.json” in the profile folder.

None of these helped. How can I fix it?

#StackBounty: #firefox #pictures Save multiple files from Firefox Web Console

Bounty: 50

I want to save multiple image files from the Network tab in Firefox Web Console

Firefox Web Console

I can right-click on a single file and select Save Image As, but multiple selection does not work.

Files downloaded via XHR

Note that the images are downloaded through user interaction and AJAX / XHR calls. So there is no way to use View Page Info -> ** Media** to save the images. Nor do extensions such as Download all images work.

#StackBounty: #certificates #chrome #firefox Did google chrome kill public key pinning?

Bounty: 200

I’ve read many articles talking about google chrome killing public key pinning in Chrome 67 (May 2018). See here, here, and here.

However, I haven’t found any information about whether or not they actually pulled the trigger on their plans. Moreover, in my own efforts I haven’t been able to conclusively decide if public key pinning support has been removed from recent versions of Chrome. This page seems to suggest it was removed in Chrome 72, but I’m not familiar enough with the Chrome development process to be certain that is what it actually says.

So do recent versions of Chrome ignore public key pinning headers? Have Firefox or Opera followed suit?

#StackBounty: #firefox #links Firefox does not display images properly after selecting red for visited links

Bounty: 50

I’m using Firefox 67.0.4. I used an option to display visited links in red. That works but now Firefox does not display images properly.

Here is a screenshot from Edge of what it should look like:

Here is a screenshot from Firefox:

Here are the choices for colors:

Note that if I select “Only with High Contrast Themes” the images work but then the visited links don’t work.

#StackBounty: #firefox #19.04 #smartcard Does the SConnect Firefox extension work in Ubuntu?

Bounty: 50

SConnect is a browser extension (made by a company called Gemalto) that makes it possible for web pages to use security devices (e.g. a card reader) connected to the computer.

According to this page https://aginsurance.mobileconnect.gemalto.com/sconnect/faq/#compatibility SConnect is supposed to work for Firefox in Linux. But for me, it is not working.

The installation is supposed to be fairly automatic, when you go to a web page that uses SConnect it detects that SConnect is not installed and asks if you want to install it. I follow the installation steps but when trying the web page again it still acts as if SConnect was not installed. Firefox shows the SConnect extension as installed but “inactive”.

In my case I need SConnect in order to use an electronic identification system that the Swedish tax agency is using (you insert smartcard in card reader to login), but I think SConnect is used in other contexts as well, also in other countries. SConnect works in Windows 10 but I need it to work in Linux, preferably in Ubuntu.

Steps to reproduce the problem: in Firefox, go to https://skatteverket.se/ and click the “Logga in” button in the top-right corner, then click “AB Svenska Pass”. At that point, the SConnect extension is supposed to be activated if it is installed, or you are asked if you want to install it. That works properly in Windows 10, but in Ubuntu it always asks to install the extension again, even if it was already installed.

This is in Ubuntu 19.04 using Firefox 67.0.4 and SConnect version 2.10.0.0.

I have tried using the Chrome browser instead (Chrome should also work according to the compatibility info link above) but that behaves in the same way.

I suppose that ideally this problem should be reported to the company (Gemalto) and they should fix it, I have tried but so far I have not been able to get any meaningful answer from them. So I decided to try asking a question here hoping that someone else has faced this problem and perhaps solved it.

Can the SConnect Firefox extension work in Ubuntu, and if so, are some special tricks needed to make it work?

#StackBounty: #firefox #google-chrome #skype #19.04 Screen sharing issue on Ubuntu 19.04

Bounty: 50

Recently I’ve upgraded my Ubuntu to 19.04. But there I am facing the issue with sharing screen.

On Skype: I installed the latest version of skype. But I can’t see any screen sharing option. First I thought, it might be the problem with skype. And then tried the other options

On Chrome: Then I tried to share the screen with hangout and google meet . And there too, it all came with blank screen on the other side of the call.

On FireFox: Here, when I tried to share screen with hangout and google meet, the problem was same as with chrome.

I tried to enable sharing option from settings as well. There I couldn’t see the screen sharing option:
enter image description here

Even thought I enable sharing option from top right, it gets disabled when I close the settings options and again come back there.

Is there any thing that I can do to solve this issue? Please help, It’s blocking my daily work.

Thank You.
