Mozilla Firefox 2.0 (Websense Bypass Modification)

Remark:
This is a personal build version of Mozilla Firefox. It features full functionalities of Firefox 2.0 but removes some useless modules, such as SVG, MathML, IPv6, MailNews, LDAP, JavaScript Debugger, Canvas, and etc.

To enable Websense bypassing feature, browse the location “about:config". Click the right mouse button to popup the content menu. Select New->Boolean to add a new preference name. The preference name is “network.http.fake-request". Set the value to TRUE if you want to enable this feature. Otherwise, set to FALSE to disable this feature.

  1. Go to the location about:config
  2. Right click to add a new property
    Firefox new property
  3. Key in the name of property name
    Firefox new boolean value
  4. Set the boolean value to “TRUE"
    Firefox network.http.fake-request

For somebody will still encounter browsing difficulities behind Websense network, just adjust some perferences in Firefox (about:config).

  1. set network.http.keep-alive to false
  2. set network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to 0

The mozconfig:
ac_add_options --enable-optimize
ac_add_options --disable-test
ac_add_options --disable-static --enable-shared
ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --enable-strip-libs
ac_add_options --disable-installer
ac_add_options --disable-jsd
ac_add_options --disable-pedantic
ac_add_options --disable-svg
ac_add_options --disable-ipv6
ac_add_options --disable-postscript
ac_add_options --disable-activex
ac_add_options --disable-activex-scripting
ac_add_options --disable-mailnews
ac_add_options --disable-ldap
ac_add_options --disable-updater
ac_add_options --disable-mathml
ac_add_options --disable-canvas

  1. your firefox build is amazing! thank you! it’s working perfectly! i’m using it at work – i really don’t mind being restricted from porn and gambling and such, but being blocked from google docs and photo sharing sites is just ridiculous. what i really would like to be able to do, for pda (motorola q) syncing purposes, is use Outlook to check my gmail account. of course, my company blocks pop3 services, or the ports that gmail uses, or something. is there any way to use your firefox build as some kind of proxy for checking gmail through outlook? or do you know how to bypass websense and/or firewalls for pop3 access in outlook? i’ve tried various port-forwarding and http tunneling utilities and i can’t get any of them to work…..

  3. please go to address bar and key in “about:config", then press enter.

    Those strings are used to configuration setting for developers.

  6. Let me understand if my procedure is right!

    1) Download firefox.7z
    2) Decompress file and copy them in mozilla firefox directory
    3) run firefox
    4) into navigation bar type: about:config
    5) right click procedure to insert a new bool “network.http.fake-request" and set it true
    6) additional 2 procedure in case of further problem.

    So a question! what’s the list you put into box ? String for developers ??? i’ve to add them in my config ?

  7. Those strings in the box is the setting for compiling firefox if someone wants to know the configure.

  11. heyla’, jclin

    a question! I need to delete all configuration about firefox, i’ve tried to delete firefox from hard disk and clean system registry too, but if I reinstall firefox, its “about:config" file remain with old entries.

    I need “about:config" options clean.

    So where I can find and delete the file that memorize “about:config" options?

    thank bro!

  15. Hi, bro.
    I used your configuration per 2 years without problems.
    Now … something doesn’t works !

    I tried to reinstall and riconfig my bon echo , I tried it on a new PC, on old pc … but internet doesn’t work.
    I see an error message “server not found" or " server reset".

    Any way i have discovered a little trick…

    If I open “messenger fx" like first page into bon echo and i log-in with my msn account… for about 2 minutes bon echo works ! After 2 minutes it stop its function and I received the error message!

    And every 2 minutes I have to close and re-open bon echo, and login again with messenger fx!

    Any solution ?

    thank bro, from italy!
