Hello, How do force firefox to renderthe html contianed in a file that I open on the local filesystem that has a file extension of .tpl?
It propts me to save the file or open with an application....
kbrosnan
harlequin516: not trivial, likely simpler to rename the file .txt or similar
harlequin516
Dang, shouldn't it be as simple as associating a file type? Or maybe a cmdline flag to open as html?
kbrosnan
relies on the os to tell firefox it is a text file of sorts
harlequin516
I have KDe mapped *.tpl to firefox, but Firefox asks me to save the file as if it does nto recognize it.
kbrosnan
kde is irrelevent, firefox uses gnomevfs and mailcap to determine file assoc.

hi there! does anybody know of an easy way to add new custom search engines? or must there be a plugin for every search engine to be used with the search bar?
i mean can't i just say "take this blah.com?search=" url and append the keyword i typed to it?
kbrosnan
right click in most search boxes and select add keyword search
marh
kbrosnan: that's just adding a bookmark..
i'm trying to get scroogle.org there
         

kbrosnan
where?
marh
into the search bar on the top right
but i can't find a plugin that does this an i wonder if there needs to be a plugin for every single search engine
kbrosnan
yes but likely there is one
check https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4 first
if not there then look http://mycroft.mozdev.org/
marh
kbrosnan: yay there it is! thanks!
i thought i searched there :)

i tried joining mozilla and got bounced here, would discussing thunderbird build parameters be appropriate here?

Hi! is there an extension that assists in singling out a faulty extension by binary search-deactivating half of them?
(should be easy enough to implement and would be really convenient with a large number of them)
kbrosnan
not that i'm aware of
Accolade
and is there some place bored extension developers frequent, where one could drop such a suggestion? :)
auscompgeek
perhaps in a channel somewhere on irc.mozilla.org? :)
Accolade
I'll check it out, thanks

ultraviolet
Is there a plugin that gets rid of pictures?
Can be disabled per tab?
auscompgeek
like Opera?
:S
ultraviolet
Don't be silly.
Opera doesn't have vimperator.
Oh, a question that also matters.
How can I make firefox's default font something else?
Preferably by Xdefaults or some other means?
Accesshater
font => go to preferences and then choose content
ultraviolet
Without using a GUI? :(
Accesshater
dunno
         

ultraviolet
Bugger :(

Hey, I was wondering if there's a way to make firefox reload all its tabs from cache when it's loading a saved session?
I have a lot of tabs open that are related to my assignment, however I must login to get the actual pages. Each time firefox crashes (RAM problem) I have to login, then manually reload each tab.
It's driving me insane :(
Alternatively if anybody knows a reliable, free source of cyanide around the north west area of the UK that'd be okay too.
I'll try irc.mozilla.org too.
