Hi.
When I go to facebook.com Firefox tells me it needs to download a plugin but doesnt tell me which one. It fails to find the right plugin, so how do I work out which plugin to manually install? I already have flash I think
xxTomxx1
install java
JonathanEllis
I already have java as well
I have Java, Helix, Shockwave Flash and Silverlight so I'm wondering what else it could be

Hi, does raindrop have pop3 support? IN the config examples on wiki it shows imap, but not pop3.
^robertj

selckin
'can't hit up' describes the problem
^robertj

kbrosnan

^robertj

insideout
is it possible to monitor extension memory usage?
towardme
insideout: about: memory?
uh
insideout
well firefox is like usually around 750-800mb of memory for me
i do get pretty carried away with leaving tabs opened but closing them doesn't seem to help, i have to restart
Mark_M
So another fix before 3.6
auscompgeek
Cork what's happening with your connection?
Cork

auscompgeek
O_o
Cork
(Action) bites the bullet and installs electrolysis
towardme

hi, every so often I need to delete all cookies from GoogleDocs and YouTube.
I'm wondering if there's a shortcut for this, or an automated process (every couple of hours or so)
Usurp|wrk
hi
auscompgeek
hello
Usurp|wrk
I wonder if the minefield theme can be used in regular firefox ? I like it better than the default one
auscompgeek
copy the theme over :P
Usurp|wrk
where is it ?
auscompgeek
within Minefield :)
         

Usurp|wrk
figured it myself already ^^
I don't know exactly whre though
where*
auscompgeek
everywhere :)
Usurp|wrk
come on... :)
auscompgeek
it's within chrome://skin I think
Usurp|wrk
I found classic.jar in Mozilla Firefox\chrome, is that the file ?
auscompgeek
I don't know :)
Cork
Usurp|wrk: what part of the theme are you talking about?
auscompgeek
b/c I don't have a classic.jar :)
Cork
the only difference i know of is icons
auscompgeek
the pie graph
Cork
that doesn't work in release
auscompgeek
there's Strata40 which mimics Firefox 4.0 :)
Cork
it doesn't have the functionality
auscompgeek
Cork yeah, I know...
Cork
Usurp|wrk: so? what do you mean by "theme"?
Usurp|wrk
Cork: I prefer the blue aspect of minefield
auscompgeek
there is no blue
Cork
Usurp|wrk: so you mean the mine globe icon?
Usurp|wrk
yeah
auscompgeek
why do you want something that could blow up? :)
Usurp|wrk
because auscompgeek is trying to get funny and isnt successful ^^
auscompgeek
>.>
Cork
Usurp|wrk: windows?
Usurp|wrk
both windows and fedora
Cork
in linux i thing theres a separat png file for the app icon
in windows the icon is inside resorce of the exe file
donno about the about grafics
'graphics
Usurp|wrk
since firefox has theme support, I had thought about something else than resource patching ^^ (which I can do of course)
a regular user should never have to do things like that
even if im a dev
Cork
Usurp|wrk: what your talking about is branding, not theming
and mozilla supports that too
but you do that in a little diffrent maner
Usurp|wrk
you mean firefox icon is not part of themes ?
Cork
correct
Usurp|wrk
thats too bad
auscompgeek
?
Usurp|wrk
well, it would be nice to show firefox with a surfboard icon in the taskbar
auscompgeek
that will never happen...
Usurp|wrk
you never know
Cork: looking at firefox.exe only there are 18 related icons...
Cork
Usurp|wrk: different sizes
and types
Usurp|wrk
and the icons for the tabs
Cork
uh. "for the tabs"??
that should be part of the theme
or even the from the page
or do you mean the generic one?
Usurp|wrk
the generic one
Cork
ok
Usurp|wrk
it is also different in minefield
auscompgeek
is it?
Usurp|wrk
auscompgeek: it is... http://yfrog.com/emiconentry11p
auscompgeek
no it isn't
I haven't seen it like that, it's far too large
Cork
its for document assosiations
like .html or htm
auscompgeek
I figured as much
(Action) hates dumb people
Usurp|wrk
I took the biggest in the exe
Cork
Usurp|wrk: its still not used in the tabs i think
its for explorer to link to when files are assosiated with firefox
Usurp|wrk
give me a sec
auscompgeek
Cork is right
I don't associate Minefield with HTML files, don't want to make my dad angry...
like, really angry...
Cork
O_o
amitz
say, is there a way to enter complement rule for "No proxy for"? A solution is using the .pac file but that would require me to run a webserver right?
Cork
nice dad...
auscompgeek
he's still using 2.0...
:(
amitz
Complement = use direct access for all sites except x.com which will use the proxy.
Cork
amitz: as far as i know firefox doens't support proxy rules
*rule files
auscompgeek
all sites except one!?!?
Cork
amitz: there are extensions you can use in firefox that does just that
amitz
Cork: the suggested solution was running a webserver that accept function FindProxyForURL(url, host) that returns the proper result. But I'd rather not run a webserver unless necessary.
Cork
i know of an old one "foxyproxy"
amitz
Cork: oh, any name you remember or I'll just google?
auscompgeek: unfortunately yeah. 2 sites actually.
Cork
there are more better ones, but as i rarly use proxy i don't remember the name
amitz: just search for proxy on addons
Usurp|wrk
back
ok, you won ^^ this pic is not for tabs
auscompgeek
\O/
Usurp|wrk
(Action) slaps himself
ok, what about the animated box for loading webpages ?
Cork
you mean the throbber?
amitz
okay, thanks guys!
Usurp|wrk
yeah
Cork
its in the theme
towardme
is it safe to use nightly build extension on my favorite extensions so I can use it on firefox 3.6 beta?
Usurp|wrk
if so, I hope the tab pic is in too
auscompgeek
NTT?
sure
Cork
Usurp|wrk: skin\classic\browser\tabbrowser\progress.png and skin\classic\browser\tabbrowser\progress-pulsing.png to be exact
towardme
auscompgeek:?
auscompgeek
Cork could I copy those to Strata40? :)
Cork
testing right now :)
auscompgeek: nope :/
auscompgeek
Cork you just tried? ...
Cork
ya
auscompgeek
hmph, those files aren't eve there...
*even
Usurp|wrk
Cork: so copy the browser.jar would be fine ? (dumbass question)
auscompgeek
I dunno :)
Cork
Usurp|wrk: it might, make sure to make a copy of the old of firefox breaks
auscompgeek
let's see if this works...
dammit! you're right!
Usurp|wrk
lets say I tried ^^ got an xul error at start with browser.jar+manifest replaced
auscompgeek
:)
Cork
auscompgeek: you use stylus?
*stylish
auscompgeek
yeah
is it controlled with CSS?
Cork
one sec
http://pastebin.mozilla.org/685019
#fbToolbar is a fix for firebug if you use it
auscompgeek
yeah, I do, but I have XP.
anyway...
Cork
so=
*so?
just skip the tb fix :)
*fb -_-
you might need to copy the images we talked about earlier
i never remvoed them
auscompgeek
did that work for you?
Cork
why else would i tip you about it? -_-'
but as i said you might need to copy progress.png and progress-pulsing.png to extensions\Strata40@SpewBoy.au\chrome\browser\tabbrowser
auscompgeek
doesn't seem to work....
even when I copy the files...
Cork
tried to restart firefox?
auscompgeek
why would that affect it when I restarted Minefield after I copied the files over?
Cork
cause firefox cache might affect it
the chrome:// you know
auscompgeek
I restarted Minefield *after* copying the files...
Cork
auscompgeek: check your source then: firefox\chrome\browser.jar\skin\classic\browser\browser.css
PoPSiCLe
hm - is it okay to ask about the newest beta here?
Cork
PoPSiCLe: you mean as in 3.6b3?
PoPSiCLe
yeah
Cork
sure
PoPSiCLe
ok
I have a slight problem
I can't get the incompatible extensions to load
extensions.checkCompatability = false in the config
but no go
auscompgeek
?
wrong!
Cork
PoPSiCLe: <firebot> To disable extension compatibility checking, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/15003 or: about:config -> right-click in page -> new -> boolean -> extensions.checkCompatibility -> false. For >=3.6, see http://tinyurl.com/y8quwpq
auscompgeek
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6b
PoPSiCLe
ah
well
extensions.checkcompatability worked fine in 3.6.2
Cork
PoPSiCLe: http://tinyurl.com/y8quwpq <-- read
PoPSiCLe
only now, when upgrading to 3.6.3 it became a problem :)
yes
I am :)
Cork
they changed the policy around the check
auscompgeek
3.6.3!?!?
