hello, someone has reduced firefox memory leaks that lead to segmentation faults?
hgrt
hello, is there a way to clear firefox's history from command line in windows?
alick
downloads.sqlite
formhistory.sqlite
~/.mozilla/firefox/d1b42iiw.default/
hgrt, you can just remove files like downloads.sqlite formhistory.sqlite under the directory ~/.mozilla/firefox/******.default/. Sorry for the previous "enter" key...
hgrt
alick, i'm using windows, not linux.
and i'm in a domain environment
Peng
Sure, that deletes download and form history, but not history history.
Seeing as history history is stored in places.sqlite along with bookmarks, I dunno how to do it.
Actually, it shouldn't be hard to write an extension that hooks a command line option up to a history-clearing function.
alick
hgrt, sorry i didn't realize that. Do you use Windows xp or some other version?
hgrt
alick, windows xp
alick
hgrt, the files should be in the directory C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\
hgrt
alick, i tried deleting those files but my history is still there.
ok, places.sqlite did the trick
Peng
hgrt: You deleted your bookmarks?
vasser
hell
hello

Fleck
can anyone reproduce this: when firefox is in full screen mode - all that is at the bottom doesn't work - like there was invisible status bar still on top (can't click html button) etc...
ff 3.5.5
linux, kubuntu 9.10
auscompgeek
please update to 3.5.6
Fleck
hmm, kubuntu doesn't have new packages...
auscompgeek
can an op please update the topic?
Peng
Ah, sorry.
Sorry sorry. Completely forgot.
I thought the version had been taken out of the topic.
auscompgeek
:)
Fleck
anyone?
mahfouz
auscompgeek: then it shld be made to impossible to uninstall personas?
auscompgeek
mahfouz it is impossible
mahfouz
i can, told you before
or maybe it's the add on i'm uninstalling
auscompgeek
lol
mahfouz
but how can I change themes, when it's not installed?
there is no personas tab
if the add on is gone
auscompgeek
you can use Personas
it's built in
Personas == lightweight themes
mahfouz
auscompgeek: i guess my main question is: how do i switch to default theme?
say I have a personas theme
i can switch if I have the add on but not without
i have no personas menu item
auscompgeek
Add-ons => Themes
mahfouz
yes, but where is default?
auscompgeek
right there
mahfouz
I don't have it
gone
i need personas plus in order to switch back to default theme
auscompgeek
delete the extensions.* files in your ~/.mozilla/firefox/profile folder
mahfouz
i guess i still have the same themes
is it possible that I never had a default theme in 3.6?

rpgdude
why is my site not form filling?
does firefox fill in the login form when the page loads or when an input field with the appropriate name gets put in the dom?
mahfouz
auscompgeek: http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla-labs-personas/browse_thread/thread/64228a9f88565650/e6a9d6dd9f28e7d5?lnk=gst&q=default#e6a9d6dd9f28e7d5
I found a link
but I think that's a bug
e.g. there shld be default theme downloadable from getpersonas.com

Hey, wwhere does Firefox store its cache? (Linux - 3.5)
mahfouz
.probly somewhere in .mozilla/firefox
Fallen77
I cleared the cache folder in there
though about:cache still lists all of it
and has a copy of each file
rpgdude
can anyone here help me get my login form to work
kbrosnan
rpgdude: link to site?
rpgdude
kbrosnan, its not public
but basically when the user clicks the login link, i create a form using javascript
the field names are username and password
will the password manager work with a dynamically created form
password manager remembers the password, but doesnt autofill the form
kbrosnan
rpgdude: more than one login for the site?
rpgdude
no i only use one account
firefox displays the username in a drop down
but when i select it, it still doesnt fill in the password
do i need to set autocomplete to true?
is there some way to debug into the password manager?
