Problem loading libcoolkeypk11.so in Firefox 3.5 beta 4
Last modified: 2016-04-22 01:11:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm testing DoD CAC smart cards with Firefox 3.5 beta 4 on Fedora 11 i386. With previous versions of Firefox, the steps to set up the DoD CAC for use with Firefox were as follows -
1. Load libcoolkey package
2. load pcsc-lite package
3. load pcsc-tools package
4. Start Firefox and configure a new security module pointing to the libcoolkeypk11.so library in /usr/lib/pkcs11
When I attempt step 4, the creation of the new module fails, with no error reported. The CAC remains unusable with Firefox.
In contrast, Step 4 works for Thunderbird 3.0 beta 2 on Fedora 11 i386. The module is created successfully and the certificates on the CAC are usable by Thunderbird.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Firefox 3.5 beta 4 on Fedora 11 i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
new security module creation fails
Kai, could you help us here, please?
I believe this is upstream bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=494899
You are using Beta 4, which is from April 27.
The issue was fixed after that date.
I believe you'll see the feature working when you use a newer Firefox build like Firefox 3.5 RC1 from June 16.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
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 prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
