Description Yannick Defais 2013-12-30 09:48:08 UTC
Description of problem:

Since I've put firefox profil/cache into RAM (using this script : su -c 'yum install profile-sync-daemon' ), I've sometimes this SELinux alert from different web site.

I suspect, since Firefox profil is now on /tmp, it conflicts some SELinux policy.
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/xulrunner/plugin-container from 'open' accesses on the file /tmp/yannick-firefox-pov6ob9m.default/cert8.db.

*****  Plugin mozplugger (99.1 confidence) suggests   ************************

If vous voulez utiliser le paquet plugin
Then vous devez désactiver les contrôles SELinux sur les extensions Firefox.
# setsebool -P unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0

*****  Plugin catchall (1.81 confidence) suggests   **************************

If vous pensez que plugin-container devrait être autorisé à accéder open sur cert8.db file par défaut.
Then vous devriez rapporter ceci en tant qu'anomalie.
Vous pouvez générer un module de stratégie local pour autoriser cet accès.
autoriser cet accès pour le moment en exécutant :
# grep plugin-containe /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2014-01-02 22:29:38 UTC
This looks like you are using rsync to copy a cert file to the /tmp directory?  If you labeled this cert_t

chcon -t cert_t /tmp/yannick-firefox-pov6ob9m.default/cert8.db

It should work fine.

Why are you putting this in flash?

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:14:04 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 13:56:40 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
