I updated the KB article. I added a different link about self-signed certificates because the one from heroku didn't deal with Thunderbird.

I would like to edit, here are the changes:

For http://kb.mozillazine.org/index.php?tit ... ertificate, the link for Comodo should be direct [1] instead of linking to InstantSSL only, or perhaps you could link to Comodo for the word "Comodo", and the same for InstantSSL. Also, you may want to point out that LE may support it soon, as there is an ACME proposal for email verification [2]. You may also wish to remove mention of Safari and Opera, as they are Chromium based, and key generation has been removed since version 49 [1]. You may also want to link to Heroku's article about self-signed certificates [3] next to the link to OpenSSL.

Your posts would carry more weight if you logged in. No one reads/bothers much about guest postings.

Also, for the sanity of first-time posters, please either reword the spam-filter question to "How many distinct (different) letters are in the word Mozilla?", or correct the expected answer (the form accepts 6 but not 7).

With bug 254592 finally fixed in trunk, the caveat section of http://kb.mozillazine.org/Accessibility.typeaheadfind should be edited to read:

When accessibility.typeaheadfind is set to false, all Find As You Type functionality is disabled. When both accessibility.typeaheadfind and accessibility.typeaheadfind.manual are set to true, typing a ' or / will open the Find As You Type window and move the cursor focus there. If accessibility.typeaheadfind and accessibility.typeaheadfind.autostart are both true, typing anything other than a space will open the Find As You Type window. If accessibility.typeaheadfind.timeout is set to a value greater than zero, the Find As You Type window will disappear that many milliseconds after the last keypress.

Can I get a username/password please? My immediate wish is to add to this page [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Repeatably_downloading_the_same_messages] that hitting max file size on Windows 7 (4GB) can also cause repeated re-downloading of messages, since I just spent a couple of hours trying to figure that out for myself [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1201115]. Would be nice to have the ability to contribute in the future.

OK, I think I have registered properly now. Thanks in advance. (BTW, I would suggest turning on https for this site, so that passwords are transmitted securely.)

Hi -- I'd like to request an account to edit the http://kb.mozillazine.org/About%3Aconfig_entries page and add new pages related to some new prefs. In particular, I would like to contribute a description of the new prefs, privacy.firstparty.isolate and privacy.resistFingerprinting. I'm a Firefox contributor who has helped develop these two features (originally in Tor Browser). Thanks in advance.

Need to update various Knowlegebase articles based upon the outcome of the Mozilla issue report:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=751749#c40

Articles that need updating:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.chromeAccess
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.contentAccess

Need to add:
16: Win (Super/Hyper)

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.generalAccessKey

Need to add:
224: Meta
91: Win (Super/Hyper)

Need to create a new page:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Ui.key.accelKey

With following contents:

ui.key.accelKey takes one of following values:

17: Ctrl
18: Alt
224: Meta
91: Win (Super/Hyper)

I can do these updates if you give me an account, or you can do them, doesn't matter, but the Mozilla bug above was from 5 years ago, which is basically how long these articles have been out of date.

Outdated info in Knowledge Base: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Software_Update in Update Channels - Advanced: Aurora no longer exists as a Firefox channel. "Aurora" is also mentioned two more times in the first two paragraphs after the channel list.

Done. I sent you a private message with the username/password.
