ftps://... does not active FireFTP interface in version 50.0 (e10s on)


(Firefox :: Extension Compatibility, defect)

50 Branch
Not set





(Reporter: paul.hulford, Unassigned)




Hi There, we love Mozilla. Use it for many things including as our company standard for access to our ftps-based file server.  We access via the FireFTP plug in for Mozilla.  We are just trying to work out what do to do after the recent Mozilla update.  The newest Mozilla version 50 seems to have broken FireFTP.  Most likely an adjusted security setting or similar?  We have downgraded Mozilla on all of our office machines back to 49.02 and turned off Mozilla automatic update as an interim measure.  Can you please advise if there are Mozilla settings we can change to allow the FireFTP plug in to activate when you type in an address starting with ftps://....
Can you narrow down a regression range with the tool mozregression, please.

Run the command "mozregression --good=49" then copy here the final pushlog from the repository mozilla-inbound.

Bug was not present in version 49.0.2 and prior versions, but is present in version 50.0
It does work if trun off browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 in about:config and then restart in Fx50.0.
