NSS from Javascript

How can I use NSS (Network Security Services) from Mozilla/Firefox
Javascript?

I'm trying to sign some data using a private key in Javascript. I know
the crypto module should allow that with the signText method, but some
of the crypto methods seem to be broken, raising Not Implemented
exceptions.

Is there another way of signing data from Javascript?

XPCOM components in Mozilla are listed here:

Which component or interface are you trying to use?
I think signText was implemented somewhere before 1.7:
<https://bugzilla.mozill a.org/show_bug.cgi?id =29152>

But when it comes to very Mozilla specific stuff then it seems better to
pick an appropriate group on news.mozilla.or g and ask there than here in
comp.lang.javas cript.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention.
