frostburn
rcmaehl, what version of firefox?
rcmaehl
3.5.5
frostburn
hmm, i'd disable all plugins to see if you're still seeing the same behavior. sounds like a caching issue
rcmaehl
so start firefox in safe mode
?
frostburn
rcmaehl, if you want. I'd even try the same build/plugins on a different computer
rcmaehl
hmmm... firefox is taking a long time to load ever in safemode
O_O firefox upgraded to 3.5.6 when I started safemode
okay i don't have to refresh in safemode so It has to be an add on or somethign
something*
*AR: OMG!* Yes! it's fixed

WTF I've got Firefox open with just one tab, on the BBC News website, and it's using 147 MB of memory.
This is the kind of stupid things Firefox does which is convincing me to ditch it.
147MB on about:blank too.
pcgenius
hey mesula1
mesula1
pcgenius: Hi.
pcgenius
how you come to know that FF is using 147 Mb
?
mesula1
pcgenius: That's what gnome-system-monitor told me.
Top tells me 174m RES is being used.
pk
i am a linux user and want to use this site but it says needs internet explorer help:( http://mydesicricket.com/sony.php.htm
kbrosnan
requires active x according to the site, that is a windows/ie only technology
pk
so i cant?
vigge_sWe
the bug that you can't view source of an "bad page" hasn't been fixed yet?
kbrosnan
view-source://url is the workaround
and no it has not been fixed yet
pk
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
kbrosnan
pk: correct
vigge_sWe
ah
ty
kbrosnan
pk: the workaround is for vigge_sWe, not you
pk
well that is for me too
take the url and play using vlc
kbrosnan
was vlc able to decode the content?
Andr3wU
everytime i use the 'awesomebar' to search it goes to opendns and not google
how do i change this?
pk
vlc decodes everything
Andr3wU
it doesn't decode DRM protected AAC
:P
pk
hahahaha
it does
if we compile:)
Andr3wU
actually i'm wondering on that
right now chromium uses ffmpeg to decode in HTML5 tags
i think it would be neat if firefox did too
kbrosnan
still need to license the rights to use an aac decoder, these run into the millions of dollars a year and are non-transferable
thus linux distros that build firefox from source could not enable that code without paying the licensing fee
see the last Q @ http://ffmpeg.org/legal.html
and the 2nd to last Q

i create a new extension with a different name, but nothing loads up when i open firefox
kbrosnan
case issue?
hwl
nope

waheedi

hwl
http://pastebin.ca/1719565

KaiForce
to whom it may concern: looks like my crashes after 3.5.6 upgrade were caused by a hung acrobat reader
pcgenius
waheedi:please explain alittle more
hwl
and i have a file named gdictionary with the path to that extension '/home/user/dev/gdictionary/'
waheedi
ok now on firebug you can see the net tabs, and you could see the requests
hwl
oh wait
i think my file was cut off
pcgenius
waheedi:yep
waheedi
pcgenius
ok wait checking it
hwl
kbrosnan: any ideas?
http://pastebin.ca/1719573 this is the install.rdf
kbrosnan
<em:id> should be an uuid or follow the format foo@example.tld (perfered)
though i don't know if that is verified
hwl
ah ok
that did the trick

Hi , I m getting a very weird problem whenever i am clicking on any google search result firefox is redirecting to me a sh*t search page/other website, please look at ss :- http://i48.tinypic.com/250sdfp.jpg. Please help i cant search properly
kbrosnan
malware likely
tpio
how to remove that
kbrosnan
can be difficult
tpio
then what to do ?
kbrosnan
Malware removal links: http://www.safer-networking.org (use the "Hosted by Safer-Networking" mirrors!) http://www.malwarebytes.org http://www.spywareterminator.com
tpio
i ran malware bytes but it says no malware found
kbrosnan
not sure then, i don't do malware removal very often
sometimes there are some people at irc://irc.mozilla.org/firefox that know malware removal better than i

Hi guys. I have Win Vista Home Basic, and my install of firefox keeps trying to dl the patch for 3.5.6, which I've already reversed once cause it's borked on my machine, and I can't stop it from trying to upgrade, any ideas on how to prevent it from looking for and automatically downloading updates, even when I refuse permission to the software updater to run?

hey ppl
is there a known firefox addon to remove http-referrers for the later visited website?
joeytwiddle
ulrike: i don't know of an addon, but i do know a quick trick
right-click to copy the link location, then visit it (in linux you can visit clipboard's URL just by clicking middle-mouse on an empty part of the page)
ulrike
mh thx thats the way i've used to now
privoxy has an option
in the default.action config-file
per default :)
