Salvad
Hello.
Does anyone know if the Adobe Flash player plugin stores settings?
In Linux.
I want to set it to use the /dev/video1 device instead.
C2H5OH
is there any secret or undocumented workaround for the WM_CLASS issue?
sproaty
This is weird, uploading.com gives me constant 400 bad requests; tried it in IE6 and opera and it loads fine every time, but will *not* load in FF 3.5; xp sp3

laocoon
any reason for firefox to stall at Connecting to XXX... for a single website while I can ping and use netcat to GET the index?
and all other websites work
and downforeveryoneorjustme.com says it's up
and I just looked at it on firefox on my windows machine
it's a bit wierd to me
Darkedge
uhm listen I get Firefox to delete everything upon close, except theres one cookie I wanta keep, How can I do this?
laocoon
windows or linux?
Darkedge
Linux
laocoon: why?
Accolade_
Darkedge: you could set ff to not delete cookies on quit and run ff with a batch script which does that after ff terminates, except for that special cookie
laocoon
an unsecure way would be to have a shell script start firefox and delete all but the one cookie you would want
Accolade
(Action) ninja :)
laocoon: why is it not secure?
Darkedge
well would perphaps
laocoon
I had to do something like this but it required root to edit the files
Darkedge
copying the cookie to another spot, and linking the cookies work?
laocoon
but i guess the script doesn't need a superuser command to erase them so nvm
Accolade
hm, wouldn't the link get deleted then?
Darkedge
:/ I could hard link them :P
Accolade
but yes, that might be a better idea
right
soft link should work, too
Darkedge
idek the diffrence between hard and soft :P
Accolade
then your script will just have to put back the link, then it can terminate right after launching ff
Darkedge: not important in this case
Darkedge
yeah ok..
:P
i'll start writting it now..
         

laocoon
any reason why cchtml.com doesn't connect in firefox but i can see any other website?
Accolade
soft can point to other drives and it's directed - there is a link and a target file
(kind of)
hard links are like object references in java - they are all created equal and point to the identical ("anonymous") file record
Darkedge
:/ uh where would the cookie be, Anywayz?
~/.mozilla but idk where it is there..
Accolade
oh, tough luck for you there, buddy - it seems they are in a binary file: cookies.sqlite
sqlite is a common library though, so you could access it, if you are willing to invest the effort
but I doubt there's an shell script api
s/an/a
Darkedge
uhm well I actuly only want ONE cookie so could I just cp * *.backup and take it back when I need it?
Accolade
but you might try a quick google search - maybe there's an easy way, who knows
brlancer
sqlite3 is a command line ui to it
Accolade
oh good
brlancer
but there are lots of cookie managers in Mozilla's list of add-ons, prolly one of those will handle it
Accolade
Darkedge: must it be able to change with your websurfing?
laocoon
that's what I was about to mention
I still can't get cchtml.com to show up for me
Darkedge
well its RS...
Rapidshare cookie...
I think that only contains expirary date
Accolade
Darkedge: otherwise right, you could just put an almost empty database with only that cookie in it there by script
laocoon: I suppose there is some kind of log you could access
laocoon
write a homepage for yourself that sets the cookie and then use javascript to do a window.location("
Darkedge
uhm brlancer could you suggest a cookie manager?
brlancer
Darkedge: no, I don't have any experience with them
Darkedge
...ok but do you know the name of some?
Accolade
just google
brlancer
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search?q=cookie
Darkedge
k
Accolade
or search the mozilla extensiet site
*extension
brlancer
your time would be better spent testing out a few extensions rather than trying to script up one yourself
laocoon
Accolade: Error Console shows nothing
Darkedge
ok
brlancer
laocoon: have you tried this in Safe Mode?
laocoon
no
Accolade
also, you could compare with another graphical browser
brlancer
that and making a new profile are two of the best ways to narrow stuff down
laocoon
it worked in windows firefox now i'm in ubuntu firefox and it's the only one that doesn't work and
downforeveryoneorjustme says it's up
and netcat can get the html with a GET command
brlancer
from the same machine?
laocoon
yes
brlancer
have you disabled ipv6 in Firefox? (about:config -> 'network.dns.disableIPv6' == 'true')
laocoon
no
let me try
what's up with that?
(that worked)
brlancer
Darkedge: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11044 seems to handle what you're looking for; I cannot attest to the quality, tho
laocoon: what's up is ipv6 is enabled in some recent distros and completely fouls up applications
laocoon
well i guess that's what you get when you have that many configurations...
brlancer
no, I just think adding ipv6 to the OS wasn't QA'd long enough
laocoon
bah 2nd day off of windows... gotta love the support irc's bring when google doesn't
brlancer
and while there are ways (on the OS level) to fix it, they aren't obvious
laocoon
you think installing the "unofficial ati linux driver" will help my problem of choppy youtube video's (embedded not fullscreen)
figure i'll ask since there's someone around
brlancer
laocoon: I've no experience with ATI cards for quite a while
laocoon
lucky
lol
embedded flash is the only thing I really need to fix before I can' swap the size between linux(50gb) and windows(200gb)
the wife won't let me remove her youtube videos lol
brb gotta logout-login
hrm... nope new video drivers didn't help
xanax`
hello
how can I delete the history of the autocompletion on fields (Firefox 3.5.5, windows 7) ?
Accolade
if you only want to delete specific entries, you can point at them and press delete
xanax`
oh cool
brlancer
you can also use the up/down arrows to select one and then shift+delete to remove it
to clear ALL of it, CTRL+SHIFT+DEL will open the "Clear Recent History" dialog and you can select "form & search history"
you can select different time periods - 1h, 2h, today, everything
just... be careful with that one :)
xanax`
ok thanks :-)
it worked like a charm
thanks
brlancer
You're welcome. Pass it along. :)
(Action) slumbers

hello. How can I add a root certificate to firefox in linux, but not for the current user but globally for all users? I am building a packet that includes the Spanish FMT (Fábrica de Moneda y Timbre) for electronic IDs and I want it to work for all users "automagically".
ATuin
hi all
my firefox can't detect the java plugin, any clue?
Treval
Are there any session tools for FireFox? For example, I want to have a series of tabs that pertain to 'college' and another series that pertain to 'hobby' etc..
Maybe something with tabs..
cryton
bookmark > bookmark all tabs ?
Treval
lol?
cryton
saves them into a folder
Treval
No not that way
cryton
middle click folder to open all tabs
Treval
That's not what I mean..
Middle click is not something handy.
cryton
then try session saver, session manager, or tabmixplus's session thing i guess
Treval
Tabmixplus is hateful.
hmk
You see
For example, regardless of the content
I just go search stuff about computers and I drag it all into 1 'computers' tab
same for other subjects
so that I have 5 tabs instead of 50
hm looks ok
vasser
greasemonkey still don't work under minefield ... is there a fix ?
FANDER

ahh, gotcha

kbrosnan_
sessionstore.bak or .js in your profile
MakeGho
hmm.
jacekowski
is it possible to force firefox to install specific addons?
if i have administrative access to PC
MakeGho
nuu, google tells me from maemo's page that fennec doesn't support "save image" :(
kbrosnan_
jacekowski: force how?
jacekowski

and i want all of them to have same set of addons
cryton
