#325 fire.fm breaks adding security exceptions

Arnout Engelen

I encountered the problem mentioned in http://bugs.gentoo.org/253196 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox-3.0/+bug/214725 (not being able to add a security exception), and it went away after disabling the fire.fm plugin.


  • seems to be fixed in 1.1.5

  • I have fire.fm 1.1.5 and the problem persists for me. I need to disable fire.fm to add security exceptions

  • I encounter the same problem.
    OS: Ubuntu 8.10

  • I can't reproduce this on Ubuntu Linux, using Firefox 3.0.5. We need more
    information in order to try and fix this problem, which I personally can't
    even imagine being related to Fire.fm.
    * Make sure you're clicking the "Get Certificate" button before clicking
    on the "Confirm Security Exception" button.
    * Let us know if you see any errors in the Error Console when you try to
    add the exception. Try setting these preferences for more advanced error
    * Send us your Fire.fm log file:
    1) Locate your profile directory
    2) Look for a directory named "firefm"
    3) Inside, look for a file named "log.txt". Send this file to us.

    * I verified the problem went away when disabling fire.fm, and reappeared when enabling it again
    * I am positive I didn't forget to 'Get Certificate' - the 'Confirm Security Exception' button is grayed out until you do.
    * I lost the installation exhibiting the problem due to hardware (disk) failure, and I can unfortunately(?) no longer reproduce it.

  • Same problem on Ubuntu 8.10, Fire.fm 1.2 with Firefox 3.05 and 3.06. When I disable the Fire.fm plugin, it's solved. The button 'Confirm Security Exception' doesn't go gray, it just doesn't do anything and keeps the window opened.

  • same here: error reproducable with ubuntu 8.10 - firefox 3.0.7 (for ubuntu) and fire.fm 1.2.3

    any solution?
