Documentation NEEDED for installing PKCS11 modules, now that pkcs11
.addmodule() is disabled
Copy from bug #326628 comments: Where is the documentation for a workaround?!? This came as a VERY BAD news for us. In Europe Estonia is not the only country using ID-cards. And removing this functionality without any info about workaround is a very-very bad practice! https://ideelabor.ee/opensource/wiki/IdKaardiTarkvara/VeebisAutentimineMozillaga - this page is usless for Firefox 3.5. How can we do the same thing with xpi? Dumbuser can't find even device manager.. How should they find correct module to load?! I'm really waiting for GOOD documentation as this is a release blocker for Estonia and other countries using smart cards.
Restoring blocking nom after component move - this is really a docs bug, but a docs bug against PSM changes, so this felt like a better place for it to live, for now.
It would be helpful if someone familiar with this issue could either write this article, or contribute extensive notes that I could turn into an article, since I don't really know what's going on here.
--> MDC as this won't be a code-related blocker.

The user-interface part of that doc probably ought to live on support.mozilla.com and not here, but I'm not sure how SUMO works.
Summary: Documentation NEEDED for workaround of bug #326628 → Documentation NEEDED for installing PKCS11 modules, now that pkcs11.addmodule() is disabled
"XPIs" no longer have install scripts (install.js)... they are Firefox addons. So the correct answer for installing a PKCS11 module would be to have an extension do something like this: var pkcs11 = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/security/pkcs11;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIPKCS11); pkcs11.addModule('name', path, cryptoflags, cipherflags);
