hi, is there a firefox dev here ??
jthomas
does anyone know how to access gecko programatically
i basically need to scrape some info from a site that won't let me in unless i have javascript installed
and it's foolproof -- serverside test of whether cookies have been placed
so there's no way around it
i basically need to simulate a firefox page retrieval programatically

Hi, Anyone use foxyproxy?
webbb82
anyone know why i cant use addons in 3.6.3 i did the extension.checkcompatability false but it still says not compatable
TestPilot
it is actually " extension.checkcompatibility", not "extension.checkcompatability"
webbb82
extensions.checkcompatibility.<version> is what the web site says
so if im running 3.6 beta 3 would i do extensions.checkcompatibility.<3.6b3>
auscompgeek
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6b
webbb82
dont oh ok thanks alot
auscompgeek
np
webbb82
do u have any sugestions onto what version would run best in linux 3.5 is so slow i cant use it 3.6 is ok but how is 3.7 these days
one more do i make it a strigi or booten
auscompgeek
boolean
string doesn't make sense
webbb82
oh
auscompgeek
now, it would be nice if someone created an extension that makes the location bar act *exactly* like in the mockups...

hello. This seems like the best place to ask this question. I'm looking for a FF addon (grease monkey script?) That will always place the wikipedia entry of my google search term first in the list
kbrosnan
sounds unique

Hi, Anyone here use foxyproxy?
auscompgeek
I just use Firefox's 'Use system proxy' setting :)
Turbulenti
Im looking for something that will allow me to cycle through a series of proxies. Not to sure what to make of the pattern identification in Foxyproxy. Does the pattern enable the address destination or block it? I still haven't found an answer on how to find the port for a proxy server when it isn't given in a list.
The only info I've found is to try the commonly used ports.

I believe Firefox is causing my mouse pointer to jump to the corners of my screen occasionally
because i've stopped using firefox for a while and I'm using chrome and I'm not noticing the problem
auscompgeek
it's your mouse

Greetings, while I like the feature that allows you to move one tab from one window to another, my system a (windows vista laptop) currently has the horrible habit of splitting off tabs into new windows WITHOUT MY ASKING... it's darned annoying... how can I either make this feature slower/less responsive or turn it off entirely? I'd rather not turn the feature off entirely... but I need some way to stop it from doing this so much
thanks

Hello, I have a strange problem on OpenSuSE 11.1. I upgraded to OS 11.1 from an older version, and now I have FireFox 3.0.?? installed. Firefox works _once_. When I try to start it again, I get a memory access violation. When I rename ~/.mozilla, it works again _once_. I finally wrote a shell script which first restores a backup copy of ~/.mozilla and then starts firefox. This works, but I cannot keep changes. Can somebody, please, help?

crk
is there a way to delete the cached images
from firefox?
I'm using Firefox 3.5.5 on Fedora 11
Cork
crk: clear cache
crk
I dont want to tamper with my browsing history...
Cork
don't need to
just clear the cache
crk
Cork, does that mean manually emptying the Cache folder in the firefox dir
or is there a menu option for it
Cork
tools > Clear Recent History > "Everything" > expand Details > uncheck everything EXCEPT "Cache" > Clear Now

"set as wallpaper" doesn't work without a DE

i want to download a remote .xpi
the url is on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/421/addon-421-latest.xpi
but when i load it, the installer is popped up. anyone has an idea how to download the .xpi for local use?
Dan39
firefox channel :O
how do i get custom protocol working? using 3.5.4 on linux. tried the config options and it just keeps saying it doesnt know protocol because its not associated with any program...
ignotus
shevy: try with IE:)
mzz
shevy: if you can find something that links to that xpi you can right-click the link and "save as"
shevy: and I think https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/421 has a link like that
Dan39
well nvm folks. figured it out :)
thanks anyways :P
peace
JSharpe2
what a faggot
anywho, some one help a near blind guy out and post a screen shot of the FF Font Settings page
shevy
thanks mzz "save as" worked

hi...is there a way to install user-specific native plugins for firefox...e.g. under ~/.mozilla somewhere??
microm
ff 3.5.4 hangs or crash when the url is not a fully qualified domain name (eg. http://hostname/). This used to work. Now I have to redo all my internal wiki links. Is there an easier way?
compressed
i was trying to for a ff3-specific selector hack...I've seen the examples use "html>/**/body .selector, x:-moz-any-link, x:default { .. }", but I need "html>/**/body .selector a:hover, x:-moz-any-link, x:default { .. }"..any ideas? a:hover isn't working for me
kbrosnan
microm: check safe mode/new profile http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic+Troubleshooting
i have no issue connecting to my machine
microm
http://localhost/ works just fine for me as well. It's when I type the name of another machine on my local network, it searches google instead, or it crashes ff or hangs it until I kill dash nine. There, I just did it again... http://internal_machine/, but if I do http://internal_machine.mydomain.com/, no problem!
konqueror has the same problem... but in opera, there is no problem with http://machine/, can I declare this as a firefox bug?
ZwEnN
hey can someone help me? i tried to install the addon personas now 3 times but its still not listed under my addons oO where could the problem be?
same with adblock plus oO
kbrosnan
ZwEnN: sounds like a corrupt extension cache
ZwEnN: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Unable+to+install+add-ons#Corrupt_extension_files
ZwEnN
kbrosnan its still not working...
maybe problem with kaspersky?...
kbrosnan
ZwEnN: yeah, if you have kaspersky i've heard of people having trouble installing extensions
ZwEnN
kbrosnan it really was kaspersky... i deactivated it and its working...

Why the version 3.0.15 of Firefox for Linux do not have the keyboard shortcut to bookmark all tabs (Ctrl+Shift+D) like the Windows version?
Apparently in newer versions the shortcut is absent too.
kbrosnan
_08156504: might be a reserved key combo on gnome
_08156504
kbrosnan: That is what I thought a priori, but I wish to solve the mistery completely.
kbrosnan
on my ubuntu server that i am vnc'ing into does not seem to do anything

is there any channel about thunderbird (or mozilla?)?

Hi, I have an extremely weird problem where firefox is warning me about an ssl certificate not being certified, while I know for a fact it is.. on other browsers it works fine and even on some other pc's the ssl certificate is processed correctly, but most firefox clients fail and won't even let me add an exception due to the certificate not being certified. Anyone know why this might be ?
kbrosnan
jlu: the option matches the currently selected search engine on the upper right
Naaatan: preexisting exception
jlu
kbrosnan: is it possible to add my own search engine to this mnu?
