how do I set xchat as default for IRC links in firefox?
sp4rc
guys i am using firefox 3.5.5 on fedora 11 x86_64 and sometimes while surfing on facebook i get some black bars
have a look at my screenshot http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/2681/facebookc.png
this does not seem to happen on ie8
i am not sure what is causing this
i am running several addons namely: "download statusbar" "fast video download" "flashblock" "noscript" "xmarks"
but noscript is deactivated
satdav
how long has this been happening for
sp4rc
is anyone aware of this?
i would say since 4 to 5 weeks?
you see what i mean? the black bar on the left
if i click on that bar it vanish
satdav
what irc cliant you using
sp4rc
erm thats somewhat offtopic
i am on irssi
anything wrong with it?
aha... that was helpful
i have disabled all addons but this strange black bar persists
also there seems to be no theme responsible for
anyone hanging around here?

hello. Is there a way I can use the default theme, but add different Icons? Basically I am asking how to create a theme with only icons changed
Joel

Philus
cache sharing between instances of firefox running on computers on the local lan, does something like that exist?
gavin
not that I know of
would be quite a trick to have the cache code handle other firefoxes messing with its data
Philus
I thought there'
d be an extension for that
gavin
would be feasible, but far from trivial
Philus
browsers announce themselves via broadcast, a "master" is selected, some hash table magic occurs.. something like that
gavin
much simpler to just set up a local caching proxy
Philus
well yes, but then everyone must mess with their proxy settings, or you'd have to set up transparent proxy.. vs just installing a plugin
it could be a daft idea, I'm just throwing it out there
gavin
installing a single transparent proxy sounds much easier to me than configure many clients with addons
Philus
you're assuming there's a competent sysadmin/linux geek around
gavin
as opposed to assuming there's a competent firefox addon developer around?
Philus
the developing only has to occur once, and then it's out there.. heh
blatantly ignoring bugfixing and all that
Fraz
hey
whats the best firefox language translator?
i used to have on that translated the text in the whole page itself, but the ones i find now only translate parts and display them in a tooltip or something

Hello. I am on Ubuntu 9.10 and Firefox 3.5.5. When I set "Edit->Preferences->Privacy->Firefox will:" to some value, that value does not get remembered, and changes back to the default when I close the "Preferences" box. Is that a known issue?
auscompgeek
amikrop http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/preferences+are+not+saved
amikrop
auscompgeek: thank you :)
auscompgeek
np
amikrop
auscompgeek: neither of the 3 solutions worked for me
auscompgeek
did you try *while* Firefox was closed?
amikrop
auscompgeek: from all these files, only prefs.js was there. I deleted it, restarted ff but has the same problem
yes
ff was closed when I deleted the file, and then I started ff again, but same
auscompgeek
try http://kb.mozillazine.org/Preferences_not_saved then...
amikrop
auscompgeek: I saw that, too, but it basically doesn't say anything much more different
auscompgeek
I figured as much...
lordblaa
is flash a little broken for anyone else at the moment? e.g. can't play megaupload vids, clicks sometimes don't register..?
amikrop
auscompgeek: hmm, what could I do, then? :S
Froolap
lordblaa: Dunno, never seen one of those files. youtube works for me though.
auscompgeek
amikrop http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles
amikrop
auscompgeek: ok, thanks again
auscompgeek
Froolap too late
Froolap
So noted
If they had posted a link I foolishly would have looked at it.
I still can't get ff to play eucher on yahoo | games| cards| eucher. It will display the lounge. when I click to join a table, or watch a table, it will pop up a new window, it will draw the advertisement, I get sound for the actions others are performing at the table but it will never actually draw the table.
any help for that?
auscompgeek
Froolap http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode
also, is Flash up to date?
Froolap
ty
Yup. just installed everything last week.
including java from sun's site.
auscompgeek
Fx version is 3.5.5, correct?
amikrop
auscompgeek: wow, I 've tried everything I found on the web but nothing worked
auscompgeek
not even a new profile? :S
amikrop
auscompgeek: not even that
auscompgeek: I created a new profile, and the first thing I did, was to try to change this preference, but it did not get saved
auscompgeek
tried safe mode?
btw, did you click on OK?
amikrop
auscompgeek: there is no OK. just Close
auscompgeek
.....
amikrop
auscompgeek: neither safe mode worked
auscompgeek: what the heck is happening?
Froolap
yeah, firefox version 3.5.5 running in safe mode didn't help
I'm wondering if anyone on the planet has been able to get it working.
auscompgeek
(Action) thinks Cork should pay more attention
amikrop
And I am wondering how come all this time 3.5.5 on Ubuntu 9.10 is out, I am the first person to notice that
Cork
(Action) wasn't even looking in here
amikrop
:)
Froolap
sigh

Hey everyone (:
kavakava
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/522042 - I recently updatet to Iceweasel 3.5.5 and my -ProfileManager recently stopped working. Any clues?
I'm running GNU/Linux Debian "squeeze" x86_64 and installed Iceweasel from the repository.
kbrosnan
kavakava: the profile manager will not start if firefox is running
kavakava
kbrosnan: -P doesn't work with multiple versions of Iceweasel running anymore.
Will only load multiple instances of the first profile you start.
kbrosnan
it should not do that without -no-remote
kavakava
That one works. A special reason why the options have changed?
kbrosnan
i would guess debian mucked with stuff. the default script to launch firefox has not allowed that since before fx 1.0
kavakava
Oh. I see. :-P
Well, thanks a lot! Have been running chrome. Will be good to go back to Iceweasel.
Counterspell
It seems that when you save a web page, Firefox does not save the images references by CSS.
Is there a way around this?
kbrosnan
Counterspell: no known bug
lhunath
Is there any way to make the "highlight all" the default when doing /search stuff?
