Camera Firefox Support Tech Bulletin

Issue

Mozilla Firefox is the recommended web browser for accessing ClareVision and ClareVision Plus cameras. Firefox has discontinued support for their NPAPI plugin, rendering the cameras and NVRs unviewable in the browser.

Note: The NPAPI plugin is only compatible with the 32-bit Mozilla Firefox installation.

Solution

Continue using Firefox by downloading and installing the ESR (extended support release) version.

To download and use the ESR version of Firefox:

1. Access the computer used to view the cameras/NVRs.
