bring back the next/previous buttons in browsers!

If I've set "No proxy" under connection settings, and am still getting forwarded to a proxy for a particular domain, where else should I check? Other browsers on this machine don't get forwarded, so it's in FF 3.5.4 somewhere.
Maybe in some config file under ~/.mozilla/firefox/ ?

There's an addon that remembers forms you put in if you have a power outage or something, anyone know the name?

I've grepped and otherwise searched for the string, but no luck.
Ugh. Zotero, an add-on, keeps proxies in its own preferences.
I've been looking for this on and off for weeks.

could someone inform me on how to find out why the most recent revision in firefox occured?

Hi
I want to associate a plugin with a mime type manually
how can I do that?
kashyapc
hey, I guess, many people would be facing this prob of manually un-checking "work-offline"..
is there any solution other than..
toggling "browser.offline-apps.notify" in about:config from true to false?
and the above trick doesn't do it for me all the time..
glick
excuse me, if you take away the navigation bar view from firefox is there any other way to navigate?

hi! in firefox-3.6beta2 the line under misspelled word is so distracting, the old one used to be a small dotted line, any way to change this?
biohazrd
any ideas on why my browser would have minor problems rendering css?
i have rebuilt xulrunner and tried 3.5.4 and 3.5.5
are there any other components that would affect correct rendering?
crazy_bus
Is there any problem with addons.mozilla. I can access it but when I try and update my updates I get, Download error -228

I wondered if there's a way to pre-load a firefox instance in memory?
So when I go to open Firefox, it opens from that instance instantly (or as close to instantly as possible)?

how to add protocol handler in f 3.5, giude located http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol is not working anymore for linux. Anyone knows how to do this?

Where can I submit corrected translations for firefox?
the_madman
inherited: I would use, "Help" --> "Report a problem" or, "Help" --> "Translate this application".
inherited: Oops, sorry. That's Ubuntu-specific, I think...
inherited
hm
yeah
I don't have that one
the_madman
inherited: Let me have a look.
inherited
thanks

hi everyone

i have a little problem - somehow i'm not able to do a reasonable google search for a javascript api to the ogg theora video player in firefox
I'm using firefox/minefield 3.7 for development
the_madman
eyell: Should just look for it in mozilla.org, rather then all over the web. Let me see...
One second.
Think I've got it.
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Using_audio_and_video_in_FireFox
There you go.
eyeII
thank you!
the_madman
Knew I saw it somewhere...
eyeII
^^
i was googling for over an hour
then decided to ask someone
yes - that's really exactly what i needed - thanks again!!
the_madman
No problem.
I didn't see anything there about styling, but if you found it and it's cool for you, then it's cool for me too :)
eyeII
i don't need styling - just need to navigate through the video depending on clicks on thumbnails of slides
imagine two frames, one with a video and one with slides
the_madman
Aah!
I understand.
Yes, that's a rather nifty feature to have... and easily implemented in HTML5, as I understand it.
eyeII
now i need to navigate through both of them identically - otherwise you can only watch it only once :-D
yes
nearly everything is done now
the_madman
(Y0
eyeII
only playback control is missing
the_madman
(Y)
Hmm.
eyeII
but i will fix that now i got the reference
the_madman
Personally, I advocate sticking these features into browsers early... makes my life easier. :)
eyeII
what do you mean by that?
the_madman
With Firefox, Safari and Chrome supporting <video> and <audio>, I would be able to get away with it somewhat...
I'm something of a web developer as well.
And I would have to make the video in something like Flash, then use some cryptic <embed> garbage...
eyeII
normally i am not ;-)
yes i know
the_madman
So I look forward to when more websites start using HTML5 stuff.
eyeII
yeah
would be fine if all supported not only <video> tag but also the same codec(s)
the_madman
Yeah.
Might end up being like images: where everyone uses JPG and PNG for most-all cases anyway.
eyeII
for now my website runs only in ff
the_madman
Hmm..
eyeII
yes
i could change that into flash
the_madman
I think Safari supports anything the installed Quick-time player supports...
eyeII
but then i would have to encode all media twice - maybe next week
yes
you are right
and there is a xiph pluing for quciktime
the_madman
but of course, Ogg/Theora needs another Quicktime plug-in that nobody's going to install :P
eyeII
so you can actually play theora
:-D
the_madman
:)
eyeII
i don't understand why they don't integrate it - it's open source - not much work but would be nice
the_madman
Same...
It's like phones.
No popular/main-stream phones support the open standards.
eyeII
yes ...
the_madman
And instead go paying for licensing fees for MP3 and all the rest of it.
Like, "... wtf?"
eyeII
h264 is really nice, but when it stops being free i will stop using it - hope i have everything switched to theora till then
its not as efficient but bandwidth got cheaper, diskspace got cheaper etc.
and the fees do cost money too
the_madman
I tend to download music into ogg as well...
eyeII
but i like paying my hardware seller instead of apple ^^
my mp3 player does not play ogg unfortunately :(
the_madman
Hmm...
That's why I'm looking at Android phones now...
eyeII
:)
the_madman
And getting annoyed at all this Google Privacy rubbish people keep spewing.
Google knows your google searches? Well, you don't say! ¬_¬
Besides, [I think] it's easy enough to remove google services from android devices anyway.
I think Google's the only company I know that doesn't lock people in, but people just choose to use instead.
Sorry, going off-topic.
Waaaay off-topic.
eyeII
I'm using google for many things, but i won't say that loud or we will have a pro/con google discussion here within seconds :-D
hehe ur righ

I've been hanging around here for a bit, it's quieter then a graveyard in general.
CrackerBox
hi
eyeII
where is everyone? (I'm here for the first time, normally I develop client and server-side applications)
CrackerBox
I have a problem with FF
eyeII
hi CrackerBox
CrackerBox
I was pressing some shortcut keys
and now I can't type in english on the addressbar
:-(
the_madman
CrackerBox: Are you using Windows?
CrackerBox
yep
I tried mozilla help
the_madman
CrackerBox: Use Windows button + R, then type, "firefox -safe-mode".
Without quotes.
CrackerBox
okay
the_madman
From there, you can tick, "Reset all user preferences to firefox defaults" and click, "Make changes and restart".
I think that should get your language settings back.
CrackerBox
oh
the_madman
I don't know, I've never changed the language settings in Firefox before...
eyeII
@the_madman: i will proceed coding, thanks for your help - i will check back later - in an hour or so - till then!
CrackerBox
hey! It WORKED!!
the_madman
eyell: See ya.
CrackerBox
thanks a bunch
the_madman
CrackerBox: No problem.
CrackerBox: Wouldn't have known that myself if I wasn't a Linux user :P
CrackerBox
:-)

satdav

kbrosnan
all the current ops are reasoably active
there also needs to be a reason for opping someone, coverage of a timezone that is needed, other ops inactivity, etc.

hi, people, i have... one maybe stupid question but popular issue
can i say firefox to stop, suspend or freeze tabs we are not using?
no people here... so sad
iceroot
i want to use kprinter with firefox. this is the default print-command for firefox lpr ${MOZ_PRINTER_NAME:+-P"$MOZ_PRINTER_NAME"} but krpinter is not opening. why? if i type lpr on the shell, kprinter will open, why not with firefox?
or another question, what program is firefox calling when printing. cant find a command, the about:config print-vars are not the print-command

i just upgraded to suse 11.2 which included a new firefox, but it had to ditch the addon wget
i don't care all that much about wget
but soon after FF started segfaulting
so i upgraded from FF 3.5.4 to 3.5.5
after a new minutes (it worked at first) that one started segfaulting
by renaming ~/.mozilla to a name FF couldn't find, FF started working without segfaulting
but it works without providing anything when i select Edit -> Preferences
it shows an empty box
Help -> About doesn't show anything
i'd like very much to have FF as my browser -- i am a huge fan of the adblock plus add-on
but from the lack of activity i see here i am wondering if this is the wrong place to look for help
is everyone AFK?
iceroot
_sc_: to much text
eyeII
_sc_: not afk but no idea
firefox worked for me in suse for years but i don't have a current version deployed ...
_sc_
the upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 had numerous challenges for me
biohazrd
are there any components or dependencies of firefox that would affect css rendering?
