ESS 9 SSL/TLS protocol filtering in portable browsers


Recommended Posts

There appears to be a bug in ESS 9.0.318.0 where it does not detect and/or insert the ESET CA into portable browsers such as Firefox Portable despite being listed in the List of SSL/TLS filtered applications. This causes Firefox Portable to not render websites properly and to give numerous SSL certificate errors. Disabling SSL/TLS protocol filtering, restarting browser, closing browser, then re-enabling SSL/TLS filtering does not work.

 

The only workaround that I discovered for Firefox Portable is to open an installed Firefox instance > Tools > Options > Advanced > View Certificates > Authorities > Export the ESET CA then import the ESET CA into Firefox Portable with the same steps.

Exactly. Since portable browsers are not registered in the registry, you need to import the ESET root certificate manually.

Even though the portable browser is not registered in the registry, ESET still can detect that the portable browser exists on the system. For example, under List of SSL/TLS filtered applications, all portable browsers I have are listed despite the root certificate not being installed. I think it would be much more user-friendly if ESET just imported the root certificate for all browsers.
