Dantonic
hey, I install firefox 3.5.5 in ubuntu 9.04, but it still shows up as 3.0 on the "About" page
I'd like to use the weave plugin
auscompgeek

johnst
Dantonic, how did you install it?
Dantonic
hi johnst I opened the synaptic package manger and marked for installation firefox 3.5
johnst
Hmm...
drunsen
I'm looking for an extension that will let me set up URL renaming rules. So for example, when I visit www.example.com/a I want FF to concatenate a parameter like so: www.example.com/a?param. Know of an extension that does that?
johnst
Dantonic, maybe you just have to restart Firefox?
         

BartZ
drunsen: I don't know such an extension, but privoxy can do it (and other things). it is a local proxy, so it is browser-agnostic.
drunsen
BartZ: I'll check out privoxy. thanks.
kbrosnan
Dantonic: you can only run one firefox at a time, make sure you quit 3.0 before running .35
auscompgeek
.35?
I think you mean 3.5...

what's the best download manager for firefox?
towardme
is there any firefox extension in which the author has been verified? :P
beefcube
I realize this is a security concern, but without looking too much into the API, is it possible for an extension to call an arbitrary executable?
damagednoob
i've downloaded the firefox 3.6 beta onto my ubuntu system
but i can't find any instructions on how to make it runnable
my system defaults to 3.5 that's installed
Gadien

so, where can i get info pages
damagednoob

Peng

Gadien

iceroot
is there a way to use kprinter-dialog with FF3.x?
kleanchap
I am running the latest version of Firefox on Vista. My home page is Yahoo. When I bring up Firefox, it takes quite a long time before I can click on any link on the homepage. I don't know it this anything to do "content richness" of the Yahoo site, or Vista or Firefox itself.
I would like to check my email as soon as I go to Yahoo. There are times, when I am composing a new Yahoo mail or replying Firefox has crashed on me.
Milligan
I'm looking for an addon for firefox that adds three icons to the right of the firefox tab bar .. these icons give an indication if the html/css/javascript on the page has any errors, and lets you inspect the error if there are. Anyone know what the addon is called ?
auscompgeek
you came across this extension before?
Milligan
yeah - I've got it on my work comp,hehe.
auscompgeek
then look back at the work computer :)
if you think something is important, write it down :)
Milligan
not going to the office till Monday though :=
auscompgeek
it's Saturday today :P
Milligan
sh*t - forgot to upload my latest source - guess I'm going anyway.
auscompgeek
Miranda's IRC support sucks...
damagednoob
yeah
i don't think the im clients work very well for irc
auscompgeek
I prefer standalone clients...
damagednoob
yup
xchat :P
auscompgeek
and IRC clients that integrate with browsers :P
damagednoob
like mibbit?
auscompgeek
NO!
ChatZilla ftw
damagednoob
aaah
meh, plugins are not being kind to me at the moment
something is causing ff to use tons of memory at work
auscompgeek
you mean extensions...
damagednoob
yeah
it's probably firebug :P
auscompgeek
config.trim_on_minimize :)
damagednoob
i'll give it a try
but the problem extends to processing as well
sometimes it maxes out my cpu when a visit web pages
auscompgeek
:S
damagednoob
a = i
that's what makes me think it's firebug
it would be cool if ff had a task manager for extensions
auscompgeek
like Chrome?
damagednoob
chrome has that?
auscompgeek
err... Chrome has a task manager...
damagednoob
wow okay, i didn't know that existed
but yeah
like that but also shows plugin memory usage
extension
auscompgeek
well, there's CPU...
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14666/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14666
damagednoob
both work :P
auscompgeek
heh

Authority_Figure
i think firefox on windows keeps freezing for a moment every so often. how do i find out why?
firefox is really killing my system, so i gotta close this webchat
OpenSourcedNick
ok firefox takes 88% cpu... what gives?
kbrosnan
tried disabling flash and other plugins?
OpenSourcedNick
hmm... wait I'll try
do I need to restart after it's disabled?
kbrosnan
no
OpenSourcedNick
alright wait I have many plugins tried to disabled just about all of them
cpu 90% and up
1 plugin [adobe pdf], 3 addons [adblock , flashblock and greasemonkey] and 2 dictionaries running. firefox is 90% cpu
kbrosnan
could be some ugly javascript, tools > options > content > disable javascrip
OpenSourcedNick
restart required? [sorry for bugging]
kbrosnan
well restaring would stop the issue
OpenSourcedNick
disabled java on the go aswell
hmm
cpu is better
cpu is pleased
so what was that then?
kbrosnan
some sort of javascript on one of the pages was using all the cpu
OpenSourcedNick
javascript disabled and firefox is now 2% cpu... nice!
kinda weird because only one page is open
let me go into yahoo and try to enable javascript
hmm... all is well now
thank you very much :)
kbrosnan
np
Rower-

Gadien
chatzilla isn't listening to me :( Anyone know how to reduce the channel join interface or stop it from loading all the bloody channels?
amigojapan
kbrosnan: thanx, I am installing it
Gadien: click on the IRC menu option and unckeck the open this channel at startup for the channels you dont want to join at startup
Gadien
amigojapan:@+| ok, thanks, but i don't think you understand what i'm talking about
amigojapan
Gadien: if you are asking me how to disable the autojoin mechanism, I dont know how
Gadien: but chatzilla doesnt autojoin channels unless you specify that it should
Gadien
amigojapan: | + | You know when you want to join a channel from " File Menue > Irc > Join Channel and you get 6000 channels that you have to download before you can choose 1...
amigojapan
oh Gadien I see what you are talking about
Gadien
amigojapan: | + | Min users is set to 20 max is set to 2000
amigojapan: | + | but it won't reduce the criteria that way
amigojapan: | + | or output
amigojapan
Gadien: you would want to use the /list min 60 max 6000 command, but it doesnt work in chatzilla for some reason
Omnipotent
Why would my firefox stop using all of my addons at once?
3.5.5 and lots of addons that used to work.
amigojapan
Omnipotent: maybe you started in safe mode
Omnipotent
I don't see Firefox (Safe Mode) in the title.
amigojapan
ok, um, then sorry i dont know
cuci
evening! on linux how do I check wheather a flash movie is playing or not?
I tried ps aux|grep player(flashplayer/libflashplayer) but it does not appear
Peng
cuci: Mozilla runs plugins in-process (for now, anyway). So I have no idea how.
cuci
darn
can I get firefox to signal through dbus, or in title that it shows a flash movie
?
mzz
cuci: not conveniently
baltazor
