this is strange... the page has now passed w3c html and css tests - still looks different in opera and FF
h4writer
I have no idea if I should ask it here, but I having some problems with 'eval'. It doesn't report to me if there happens a fault in my eval'd code. It just silently fails
auscompgeek
h4writer tried at ##javascript?
h4writer
no, I'll try it there, ty auscompgeek

weird, I typed "/join #mozilla" If that were to redirect me at all, I should have sent me to #seamonkey.
=(
Anyawy,
here's my problem.
I tried writing my first java web applet.
my company has this little embedded server module from IDEC, and they want to put our app on it.
auscompgeek
there is no #seamonkey
kbrosnan
seamonkey is on irc.mozilla.org
AlonzoTG
Well, I have seamonkey and I refuse to install firefox on my local machine for political reasons. (anyone who strips Mozilla of it's regal name deserves no support.)
hmm...
I might join that network next because I am trying to resolve a compatibility problem.
         

auscompgeek
just connect ;)
kristian-aalborg
how do I see if FF is completely removed from my system (mint/ubuntu)
kbrosnan
use apt-get's purge option
kristian-aalborg
kbrosnan: did
but how can I see if it's all gone?
auscompgeek
ls :)

http://90.185.113.198
this is the site I'm doing... on any browser by my FF it has a light background and working menus
kbrosnan
looks similar on Firefox and chrome
and ie8
kristian-aalborg
kbrosnan: light BG, working menus?
http://pastebin.com/m11af9b32
this is from when I start up FF
kbrosnan
that has nothing to do with the page
kristian-aalborg
this is a mystery
ran a locate firefox
http://pastebin.com/m17fe4b38
this is after a -purge, mind you
will it be safe to delete these dirs?
Digicrime
hello
sprax
If I enter the wrong password for a site, firefox will not prompt me to try again until I restart the application. How can I change this behaviour?
kristian-aalborg
I had to rm .mozilla in my home dir fwiw

Anyone skilled in chrome CSS and can tell me what tags to use to set all the background elements to red in the UI?
auscompgeek
* {background: red}
;)
Gambit-
hahah
let me try that
yeah, that actually mostly worked :)
thanks aus :)
So auscompgeek, maybe you can solve this too :)
auscompgeek
:)
Gambit-
Everytime I start up firefox, it starts up full-display-sized. I want to start it up smaller; is there a command line option that can tweak that?
auscompgeek
just close it non-maximized :)
         

Gambit-
nope
I'm actually running it via X11 on a osx box.
so the x11 guest is where firefox is running, and the x11 host is osx.
auscompgeek
can you check your profile's list of files?
Gambit-
I don't know; which profile? The one in ~/.mozilla/profile/gobbldygook?
auscompgeek
I think so
Gambit-
so yes, I can, then.
you suggesting to delete the localstore.rdf
auscompgeek
yeah!
:P
Gambit-
yup, that did it, now I just need to redo all my taskbars.
auscompgeek
corrupt localstore.rdf...
sash_
good morning. i installed the actual beta-version of firefox and 80% of my addons dont work. as http://kb.mozillazine.org/Extensions.checkCompatibility says, it should be possible to deactivate the version-check of the addons, but this parameter doesnt exist for me
Gambit-
yup, that did it auscompgeek.
thanks again :)

Good day everyone , how to fix this ? Error: webphone is not defined
Source File: javascript:%20webphone
Line: 1
where is package sun-java-bin ? while installing ubuntu it installs yes ? so it should be in CD yes ?
and how to know whether java script is installed or not on FF ?
what is this error for
Error: no element found

SeySayux
Hi, some $random_webpage somehow detected I was using AdBlock Pro and does not allow me to continue without disabling it. How could it have detected ABP and how do I prevent this detection?
Cork[home]
SeySayux: you have a link?
SeySayux
Cork: sure, http://wtso.net and open any video
Cork[home]: ^
Cork[home]
sam person ;)
SeySayux
yea, I guessed that, but it's to make your client beep ;)
Cork[home]
both work :)
SeySayux: is this the start page your talking about or?
SeySayux
Cork[home]: no, just open a video with adblock enabled
Cork[home]
SeySayux: without digging to much i guess they detect it with javascript
all they have to do is detect the presens/absens of an element in the page
SeySayux
Cork[home]: I just figured out they use a <meta> redirect inside a <noscript>
So I activated NoScript and that solved the probem :)
Cork[home]
ah
i just hate pages like that -_-'
SeySayux
me too

hey guys
not-a-spider

kbrosnan

lyhana8

Azaryah
there was, but I ran into problems after an update, so I reset everything. still working on resetting the iptables properly
but not sure how to do that
and I can't browse to find the solution haha
I had dansguardian setup through squid, and when my dansguardian updated, I lost my browser connections
lol
lyhana8
Azaryah: linux got plenty of web browser (epiphany-browser, konqueror, chromium, opera, etc.)
Azaryah
it's not a firefox only issue
lyhana8

lyhana8
same as before the update kbrosnan
kbrosnan
lachouffe: would you give us the exact build info by typing about: into the address bar and copy/pasting the last line
lachouffe
kbrosnan, here you are Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.15) Gecko/2009102815 Linux Mint/7 (Gloria) Firefox/3.0.14
lyhana8
lachouffe: you could install shiretoko (firefox 3.5.2) or add use ubuntuzilla to keep up to date your Fx
kbrosnan: is a something more classic http://lyhana8.homelinux.org/_files/screenshots/09-firefox3.5.5-firebug1.5X.0b4-standalone-windows.png
but still buggy
kbrosnan
lachouffe: mint must be building firefox with jmaloc, about:buildconfig might list it
er jmalloc
lachouffe
kbrosnan, no... no jmaloc on about:buildconfig
it's maybe my video card that sucks
lyhana8
