Firefox ESR setting for WC and Creo View 4

Is there a list of settings one must set to stop the pop-ups that Firefox won't install when opening Creo and/or the detail structure tab?  I tried to disable the version checker from being installed but it keeps returning.

Once we upgraded to WC 11.0 and Creo 4 the first Cad object you open with Creo,  Creo makes you log into it.  That did not used to happen before the upgrade.   We are running our WC HTTPS now.

Please Advise

This is intentional by design and will happen with all browsers.

From this article: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/case_solution.jsp?n=CS237817

Out-of-the-box, Windchill 11.0 M010 is configured to use the new Creo View Agent launching mechanism: 

  • This mechanism will launch the Creo View Agent (pvagent.exe) on the client machine
  • You will need to accept the browsers' request to launch the Creo View Agent and optionally check the box to remember the decision
  • You may also need to accept the Windows User Account Control (UAC) prompt, if enabled, to launch the application
  • Because this is a separate application from the initiating Windchill browser, it will also require you to authenticate again for the same Windchill server 
    • Once the Creo View Agent has been launched, however, it will not require re-authentication for the same Windchill server and user combination whilst it remains running (configurable)
