Description German Parente 2015-09-08 10:09:59 EDT
Description of problem:

This is a clone for upstream bug:


Customer is using firefox 40.0.3

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 


How reproducible: 

I have not reproduced but seems it can be reproduced always with firefox version 40.

Steps to Reproduce:

Install extension for kerberos auth kerberosauth.xpi in firefox 40.X

Actual results:

the extension will show as corrupted.

Expected results:

Additional info:

The workaround is here:


Basically, add in about:config the property:

network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris: .<domain name>
Comment 2 Petr Vobornik 2015-09-17 10:25:25 EDT
The intended course of action is to show manual configuration in browserconfig.html instead of configuration with the extension for versions of Firefox >= 40.

The reasoning is:
* plan for enterprise environments was not published yet which forces as to use AMO (addons.mozilla.org)
* with AMO the user experience is worse than a manual configuration 

steps for AMO: 
* go to AMO page
* installed the extension
* go back to IPA page
* probably refresh
* click configure
* confirm

manual config:
* go to about:config
* set  network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris with *domain.name
