hi all --- Thunderbird question - is this the place?
when I have found an e-mail though search (Thunderbird 3), how can I find out which folder it is stored in?
hmm.. I found I can figure it out from further filtering the query and see if the mail is still in the list. Quite a hassle but it's better than nothing. Thanks. :)
sybariten
hm, i have to admit
i dont know how to prevent firefox from opening popups.... its not a new tab, its a new window. From a specific host
is there a one-good solution?
jacekowski
you mean like a pop-up on porn site?
these are really annoing because adblock don't block them
         

sybariten
yeah, its from a porn site
the only adblock i have is ABP ... but i've never used it for any kinds of popups, i think, i only define material that i block out, within "the frame" so to speak
never thought of it as a popupblocker...
But if the windows are always coming from the same domain, isnt there any way to tell firefox that "you can under no circumstances bring up new windows from domain blablabla.net"
Peng
ABP only blocks popups indirectly: you can block the script that creates the popup (or the frame that contains the script, or...).
(Obviously, you're screwed if it's inline.)
(Or at least you have to find a different solution, like NoScript or Greasemonkey.)
sybariten
hm
what does inline mean in this case?
Peng
sybariten: Actually in the page, instead of an external script.
There's probably a better term for it.
sybariten
hm
interesting
i found a pretty long thread on the adblock forum discussing this popup/window
there were a few more or less advanced solutiojns, i'm too tired to really undertand them now... but there was also a simple adblock filter suggested, that somehow fixed it
Accesshater
what about no script?
OolonColluphid
Howdy, anyone know how I can export tags along with their associated bookmarks?
I may have missed something but I couldn't find them using sqlite or json and they don't export to html as best as I can tell.
j416
sybariten: how about just disabling javascript?
jmegner
hello?
auscompgeek
yes?
jmegner
I have a firefox question
I have a keyword search for google
g
when I do "g c++ namespace" to google search "c++ namespace", the google search is actually "c namespace"
note that the +'s are converted to spaces
how do I put +'s in keyword searches?
auscompgeek
are you using the search plugin shipped with Firefox by default?
jmegner
I'm going to say yes
I'm using the "standard" firefox keyword search functionality
auscompgeek
works for me
jmegner
I guess it's because +'s represent spaces in urls
auscompgeek
it's encoded, so I don't know what's happening with you
jmegner
are you able to reproduce the behavior on your end?
auscompgeek
as I said, no
jmegner
ah, I misinterpreted you "works for me"
what version of firefox are you using?
auscompgeek
the most unstable version :P
I have to go now.
         

joeytwiddle
jmegner, it works for me too. i'm on FF3.5.5

anyone having issues with firefox and googledocs: namely i cannot save ANYTHING.
siimo
just wondering what IDE firefox developers use, on linux?
gavin
I use Komodo Edit
not really an "IDE"
Kogs
I want to set up a cron job on Windows, so I want to run firefox at specific moments but simply to get a URL
is there a way to run firefox without opening a firefox window?
sybariten
Accesshater: hi, old answer, i guess no script is a solution too, if this goes by javascript.... but the adblock solution worked, and i dont really want to turn off javascript unless necessary
Goliath
hey
does firefox work well with ms silverlight as well as ie does?
hey
does firefox 3.6 work with silverlight?
kbrosnan
should, though a lot of silverlight progams have had code that checks for specific versions of firefox
Goliath
mm
i will just use 3.55
cause i site says i have not compatible browser
and will check that too probably

hi
maybe someone can help me here, I'm experimenting with firefox 3.7a1pre, is there a simple way to get older addons running without compatibility check? I know that I risk instabilitys that way, but I'm definitely willing to take the risk and won't mind crashes and data loss

anyone around?
pcgenius
hey Tekhne
Tekhne
hi!
so, i'm having a problem installing firefox 3.5.5 on windows 7 64 bit
when i double click on the setup program, no windows shows up
i can see that two processes are running in the task manager
is firefox 3.5.5 supported on windows 7 64 bit?
pcgenius
tell me the name of process
Tekhne
k, lemme try it again...
pcgenius
ok i am waiting
Tekhne
there's a "setup.exe *32"
and a "Firefox Setup 3.5.5.exe *32"
i think htat's it
they both appear to be idle
pcgenius
right click on both of them and click on end process tree
Tekhne
okay, done
only had to do it to one
both disappeared
pcgenius
ok gud
now try again
Tekhne
okay...
pcgenius
and tell me what happen because firefox supports windows 7 64 bit
Tekhne
okay, same result: i get a "extracting..." dialog, the mouse cursor looks like it's waiting, and then nothing...no window for the install
both processes appear again
pcgenius
is extracting baar is running or stop at a point
Tekhne
this is a fresh install of windows 7, although i did connect it to a domain
extracting bar appears to finish
although that dialog disappears when it's done
pcgenius
but not finishing exactly am i right?
Tekhne
i'm not sure i understand what you mean
the extraction appears to complete, and then that dialog box disappears
pcgenius
ok ok
Tekhne
then the mouse cursor does the spinning action for a couple seconds and stops, but no window appears
if that makes any sense
thanks for your help by the way
pcgenius
