New installl of 17.2 has firefox make broken profile

Post by robert-e » Fri Aug 14, 2015 5:12 pm

Just a bit of heads up for those doing a new install of 17.2 mate...I did so, and most things seemed to work okay; albeit some just differently. OTOH, when mozilla firefox made a new profile (.mozilla), and firefox updated (I think to 40.0), I could not access my web-based email. When prompted regarding a certificate problem (actually two), the permanently store box was greyed out, and even in the same session, the provided certificates did not work. The solution was to delete the new ".mozilla" directory, and replace it with the backup. To summarize...something about the new profile was broken, and the fix was to use the backup profile.

Regards,
Bob
