0001838: New firefox version blocks PF 4.5 Configurator
NOTE: *Not a bug with PF but how Firefox interacts with the install process*

Just did a fresh install of CentOS 6.5 and did a yum update && yum upgrade. This updated the Firefox Browser to 31.1.0. With this version of Firefox, it would not allow the configurator page to display. After some Googling I found this forum post on Firefox's support page: [^]

Going into about:config and doing the following solved this issue:
setting "security.use_mozillapkix_verification" to 'true'

P.S. I couldn't select PF 4.5.0 As a product version in the drop down.

Fresh install of CentOS & update and attempt to install PF.
No tags attached.

This is a general problem with firefox and self signed certificates.
In FF 33.0 "security.use_mozillapkix_verification" isnt't even available anymore.

I think the documentation should just put a !Note next to the configurator section that if you see this error to make the change in FF's config to enable seeing the page.
