Hi, I have three updates for add-ons, but I can't download any of them (I've tried doing it over this past week). Is there a problem with the mozilla server?
pcgenius

ubuntu_giant
Well, when I try to download an update, it waits a while...in a bit I'll tell you the error message.
pcgenius

softw
I have cleaned my computer using thespyware.net
kbrosnan
did you install them through the distro package manager
         

pcgenius
ubuntu_giant:but the one thing is sure that there is no problem with mozilla servers
ubuntu_giant
Firefox could not install the file at
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/1865/adblock_plus-1.1.2-fx+sm+tb+fn.xpi
because: Download error
-228
It says that for every one of the add-ons.
pcgenius
ok
ubuntu_giant:just wait for a while i am checking it
kbrosnan
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Unable+to+install+add-ons#Download_Error_228
pcgenius
yes try this ubuntu_giant
ubuntu_giant:so what happen now,is FF working fine?
ubuntu_giant
The cache was already 59 MB.
pcgenius
ok
ubuntu_giant:which version of FF you are using and on which os?
ubuntu_giant:i think you are using ubuntu
ubuntu_giant
Firefox 3.5.5 on Ubuntu.
pcgenius
ubuntu_giant:just download that extension separately from the above link given by you and just drag it into FF window and check whether it's installing it or not?
ubuntu_giant
I'm going a wget of the link.
user@host:~$ wget http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/1865/adblock_plus-1.1.2-fx+sm+tb+fn.xpi

It's timing out from there.
kbrosnan
might be a bad server in the pool of servers
pcgenius
ubuntu_giant:but it was installed correctly in my FF just 2 min before
ubuntu_giant:simply paste that link into address bar of FF then firefox will pronted you to download it then download it
*promted
ubuntu_giant
Yeah, sorry, I was just about to do that. :)
It's timing out in Firefox, too.
wget finally quit and said "failed: Network is unreachable."
pcgenius
ubuntu_giant:so your FF is also unable to download it seperatly

hi - how do you bind F11 (full screen) to a button on your keypad? seems to make more sense to me to put it there - anyone know? i thought there might be an addon but from googling it looks like there's an xml file i can edit...
as this channel seems to be dead atm, the solution to my issue seems to be "Create a user.js file"

firefox in ubuntu trys to save .php pages isntead of displaying theme. i think the problem is not the mime type in the page headers file. what is the problem?
rockho
where does my favorites save?
auscompgeek
places.sqlite
Peng
noelferreira: Whatever the problem is, it is almost certainly the server. It's probably sending the wrong MIME type.
noelferreira: Perhaps the web server isn't properly configured, and it's sending the PHP source code instead of executing it.

hiya... i'm having a problem with seamonkey on a particular website. when i try to access http://lounge.moviecodec.com/games/starfox-fan-club-46794/ with seamonkey, it says "Content Encoding Error: The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression."
Peng
RingtailedFox: Um, I'm gonna guess that's a website problem.
RingtailedFox: since I can't get it to load in a couple other HTTP agents, either.
RingtailedFox
