kbrosnan: i enabled debugging for signin in about:config
in my error console i get
Login Manager: Found an existing login matching this form submission
however this happens after the form is submitted
when does the form get autofilled, when the DOMContentLoaded event fires?
anyway to provoke this event?

Hey guys, is Thunderbird 3 considered a beta or a real release?
ineed help installing thunderbird 3 in linux.. the tar gz comes with no help whatsoever and the site doesnt say anything
pcgenius
hey epahus
epaphus:it'a beta release
epaphus:it's beta release
epaphus
where does it say its a beta release??
         

pcgenius
just open help menu form top and click on about thunderbird
and tell me what is written there on screen about verison
epaphus
What is the difference between Shredder 3 and Thunderbird 3?
pcgenius
epaphus:still you had not told me that what version is showing in your thunderbird?
epaphus
mine says Shredder 3
if i install it in windows it just says Thunderbird 3
pcgenius
epaphus:but it's not a release candidate for thunderbird
epaphus:are you there?
epaphus
pcgenius, so Thunderbird 3 is a beta, or stable?
The problem is iam trying to install it on linux. i go to http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/ i download the tar gz , inside it the readme says just that for more information on installing it go to http://getthunderbird.com/releases/ . but that site says nothing about how to install on linux
pcgenius
epaphus:it's a beta release
epaphus
hmm ok.
well then thank you for that. I dont have the confusion anymore.
pcgenius
epaphus:try this for installation http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=2956472
epaphus
The problem is.. I dont have thel............ ahh ok
let me try
pcgenius, hmm.. this isnt very convenient, but thank you
pcgenius
epaphus:why?
epaphus
well, this isnt source
sorry
iam just not used to this
:)
pcgenius
epaphus:sorry if i am not getting your point
epaphus:it's a .tar file am i right?
epaphus
yes
but you have to move it to your /usr/local, then create the symlinks i guess
its ok iam doing it now

hey folks is this the right channel to ask questions about browserspecific programming using javascript?
the browser is of course firefox
my problem concerns the "feature" introduced by mozilla which prohibits JS to read the entire pathname from a <input type="file"....> tag,under linux I circumvented it by making the user drag'n'drop a file onto a <input type="text"..>which will disply the filename,including the full path so i can work with it once again, under windows however, firefox immidiatly displays the picture and isnt parseint the filepath along(windowsversion is 7
is there a way to get the full filename, without tweaking the browser using about:config?
latitude
Does anyone know of a greasemonkey script or a bookmarklet that can take text files that were wrapped at 80 chars and make them more readable (i.e. re-line them to say 150 chars per line)
epaphus
Hey guys quick question OT in regards to thunderbird 3.0 . Where on the official page does it say its a beta.. i even installed it on windows and click about thunderbird and it doesnt say anything about beta
Guest3331
anyone know a PDF extension that will print to PDF and then open the PDF within firefox? (without anything crazy like firefox being the default PDF app)
holloway_
I was wondering about the HTML5 drag n' drop that's added in Firefox 3.6. It supports dragging and dropping images into html textareas, but does it also support pasting images from the clipboard?
joeytwiddle
epaphus: my *guess* is, you missed the 3.0beta, and you've just got 3.0 now
Guest3331: i have swiftfox and it seems to open pdf's inline. maybe it uses xulrunner to do that, not sure
and i think it's using kpdf also (as opposed to acroread)
         

Guest3331
yeah i'm on Win7 here
Win7 64bit
running firefox portable, btw
epaphus
joeytwiddle, your saying that 3.0 out right now is not a beta, its a stable?
joeytwiddle
but acroread is probably also an option, since firefox seems i see an error from firefox every time i start it, when it scans for acroread and can't find it
Guest3331
how would acroread be an option?
Acrobat 7, I know, opens Printed PDFs in the PDF program
joeytwiddle
epaphus: i really dunno, i'm just proposing a simple solution to your quandrary
i dunno about the printing, i just know i can open pdfs inside my firefox
epaphus
Iam tired of getting mixed messages. Is Thunderbird 3.0 a beta or not..?? because the linux version i got from http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/ is very hard to install!!
i really need a guy who knows what he is talking about to answer me please :)
wikipedia however says it was released 2 days ago
Ivis
Did you now people that addons is not safe to use?
:)
joeytwiddle
<epaphus> i really need a guy who knows what he is talking about to answer me please :)
and you came to IRC?!
phr0z3n
well
she has come to the best place
see, us IRCers are the most knowledgeable people you will ever meet.
not to mention the best people you will ever meet
epaphus
iam a he :)
joeytwiddle
shattering dreams all round
i have a theory that the people who already know, have little need to be in IRC ;)
aaanyway, since nobody here seems to know the answer, you could try irc.mozilla.org #firefox
altho wikipedia appears to have answered your question
Templarian
I'm right in thinking that the svg tag won't work in a normal .html file right?
nvm just realised that it's implemented just not enabled yet. I'll just go back to using text/xml.
holloway_
Templarian: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/SVG_In_HTML_Introduction
Templarian
Yea, I know, I just didn't notice it had to be enabled for it to work in normal XHTML pages. text/xml is still fine like in that pages example.
oh nvm didn't see the bottom example.
eMan_
Hi firefox ppl. Does anyone know how to set up Thunderbird?
Templarian
eMan_: Tools > Account Settings. Add Account.
Just type in the data for your email and follow the steps.
liao14
can someone tell me, why I cannot hit the setting Pannel in the flash? thx
eMan_
Thanks. Now what about initial set up where I add my name email and all that other stuff. Skip it?
Templarian
You can fill it in it may not be required.
eMan_
Ok I'll try it.
Templarian
holloway_: I don't know if you would know, but is it best to go with the .xml method or the .xhtml method?
krushia
where can one download older releases of firefox? http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ is all i see, and it only goes back to the latest 2.x
liao14
Templarian: do you know, why I cannot hit the setting Pannel in the flash? thx
Templarian
liao14: does it work for youtube.
If not restart your browser if nothing still uninstall flash and reinstall should go away.
holloway_
Templarian: I don't really have a preference, other than that SVG as a separate file is easier to edit
krushia
nevermind, looks like they are all at ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/
pretty annoying
Templarian
holloway_: This is for a UI system for work, everyone here uses Chrome Firefox and Safari, so I figured I would write it all in a dynamic SVG in 1.8.1 JS. :)
So inline is the best choice if it's written and created with JS.
holloway_: when XHTML5 gets adopted fully will the tags have the namespace svg?
(Action) goes off to read html5 spec.
liao14
Templarian: i try two ways to reinstall the flashplugin(pacman and just copy the libflashplugin.so),but the problem still here. I can right click in the flash and get the setting Pannel but I cannot hit any button on it..
holloway_
Templarian: I think the namespace is optional for both SVG and MathML
argh... too late

mahfouz

Federeor
Cork : Thanks
Cork

you can use sqlite manager, its an addon for firefox
Federeor
