Question: I'm running FF 3.5.6 and I'm running into a privacy/security issue. When I use "Clear Recent History" it appears to keep usernames/encrypted passwords for sites I have visited. Is there a way to enable the Clear Recent History to clear these as well?
kbrosnan
you manage saved passwords in the firefox password manager in options or prefs > security > saved passwords
ZummiG777
kbrosnan: Thanks!

hi channel -- I am in need of a Firefox-cached copy of an RSS feed that has been inadvertently deleted from the server
is there a way to retrieve the cached copy? It's one of the only copies I am aware of
(via active bookmarks)
about:cache has the 404 message, but the RSS entries still display in the active bookmarks tab

hey anyone is on channel i want some information about bugs in bugzilla
?
kbrosnan
pcgenius: what?
pcgenius
Kbrosnan:hi
kbrosnan
hello
pcgenius
i want a information about bug 530483
i think we had already talk about this
kbrosnan
remind me have you tried safe mode/new profile?
         

pcgenius
kbrosnan:this bug is not related to me
kbrosnan:i am just trying to solve it
Froolap
Why does firefox require SqlLite?
kbrosnan
stores info in sqlite databases
pcgenius
kbrosnan:so i just want to know that how should i start to solve it because it' on FF 3.5.5+windows xp and i am on 3.5.4+ubuntu
*it's
Froolap
ok, let me rephrase. Why does firefox require a database?
kbrosnan
pcgenius: we need a standard way to reproduce the issue that the user is seeing
pcgenius
kbrosnan:ok so please tell me the way
kbrosnan
there is info that was already stored in a custom and obscure database called mork, used in fx 2 or lower to early versions of netscape
they replaced an difficult to work with database with an industry standard one
Froolap
k
kbrosnan
they also replaced several rdf files with sqlite databases
Froolap
I don't see why a web browser would need a database, but if you say so.
kbrosnan
history, safebrowsing lists, downloads...
pcgenius: it is not even a confirmed bug, there is a good chance that the user has some sort of profile corruption or malware on the computer that is breaking the search
pcgenius
kbrosnan:ya that might happen
kbrosnan:so i should start working only those bugs which are confirmed ?
kbrosnan
generally that is a good idea
pcgenius
kbrosnan:and what's about the NEW
kbrosnan
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=[good+first+bug]
pcgenius
ok
Froolap
pcgenius: Here's one for ya. Enable pop-ups. http://games.yahoo.com/eu;_ylc=X3IDMgRtcANibARwb3MDNDQEc2VjA2dhbWVsaXN0BHNsawNFdWNocmU- I can see the menu for starting a table or joinging a table..... but when you actually try to join a table I get a pop-up window, and an add displays but the table never draws. Haven't found anyone running linux that can get the table to draw.
eventually get an error saying unable to create table, enable pop-ups.
pcgenius
Froolap:ok i am just cheking it
Froolap
seems to work ok for playing chess on yahoo, but not for eucher. dunno why. I've tried all the java updates, including getting java from sun's site.
kbrosnan
i was able to get Firefox 3.5 linux and sun java 1.6 r15 to load the chat
Froolap
chat yes, but not the table.
kbrosnan
ahh ok looking
Froolap
doesn't matter if you create a table or just watch an existing tabe, table never draws.
I get this error a couple of times. Error: [Exception... "update.locale file doesn't exist in either the XCurProcD or GreD directories" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.1/components/nsUpdateService.js :: getLocale :: line 549" data: no] Source File: file:///usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.1/components/nsUpdateService.js Line: 549

Froolap
well, good, it works for somebody, so there's hope that maybe one day.
Thanks
did you have to do anything "special" to get it to come up? What's up with this localFile thing?
satdav
hey if any one has got any issues just ask
Froolap
I did.
kbrosnan
Froolap: nope, just running 32 bit firefox/java
Froolap
yah, me too.
kbrosnan: Maybe it's distro broken. Which distro are you running?
kbrosnan
ubuntu 9.10
Froolap
Ok, I try that.... FC12 here.

I am having trouble with flash in firefox 3.6b5. I can hear the sounds of things playing but I can't see any picture. Any idea why?

Conny028
Good evening. I want to give ff command via command line to print (win32). Ist that possible?
Print a webpage I also want to give via command.
kbrosnan

Conny028

ShawnRisk
I am having trouble with flash in firefox 3.6b5 on Mac OS X 3.6b5.  I can hear the sounds of things playing but I can't see any picture.  Any idea why?
oops I mean 10.6.2
kbrosnan
ShawnRisk
10.1.51.45 is the version I have
kbrosnan
run the flash uninstaller?
ShawnRisk
I am going to update to see if that helps
gui7
hello
ShawnRisk
hi
kbrosnan: I just have to wait until flash fixes this
gui7
i'm on a linux (ubuntu 9.10) installation, and i'd like to import all my firefox srttings (ie addons, plugins, bookmarks, etc) from windows into linux
is there any way to do this? better yet, if i could use a symlink to keep everythign synch'd, tahtd be even better - is there any way to do this?
ShawnRisk
easy I have done that
you just copy over the profile folder, and find the files you want to move and move them
gui7
ok - i've got a couple addons i'd liek to keep for ubuntu only, taht will erase them wont it?
ShawnRisk
maybe not sure never done plugins
joeytwiddle
some addons are OS-specific, i think some maybe not
the recommended solution is probably Mozilla Weave
but i don't know how stable that is
gui7
hmm ok
ingram23
why would firefox see my javascript files as a bunch of chinese letters?
kbrosnan
gui7: weave extension would sync everything
gui7
btw where are profiles stored in linux? cant seem to find em
kbrosnan
~/.mozilla/firefox
gui7
ah oki thx
hmm im taking a look at weave right
would i only have to install it on my windows firefox and linux firefox?
kbrosnan
yes
gui7
sounds god, ill try it :D
does it also sync my addons?
kbrosnan
no
ShawnRisk
anyone using Flash 10.1 beta 2?
prieur9
hi
can someone tell me how to stop firefox from treating bad DNS requests as an excuse to do a google search?
ShawnRisk
hi
prieur9
eg, if I enter "hello" in the adress bar, I don't want a google search for that word
I want an appropriate DNS error message
kbrosnan
prieur9: generally that is your isp's doing
prieur9
no it's not, my ISP has their own DNS hijack scheme
ki7rw
is there a bug with firefox about not giving site identity when you point the mouse at the site's icon in the url?
kbrosnan
you can disable keyword.url but it really should not be triggering if you have a vaild dns entry for the site you are trying to go to
ki7rw
every site gives "site does not provide identity information"
kbrosnan
ki7rw: the only sites that provide identity info are secure sites
so https://ebay.com for one
ki7rw
well, i visited 2 sites with https protocol but i get the same results
no lock icon also
kbrosnan
bad theme?
os?
ki7rw
mandriva 2010.0
kbrosnan
some distos ship the standard certificates as a seperate package in their package manager
prieur9
kbrosnan: I just opened up wireshark. After I do a bogus word in the address bar, eg "ab test", there's a DNS request for google.com, then. I'm pretty sure this means Firefox is the culprit.
google is not even set as my search provider. it's been deleted from my list of search providers. (first thing I do on install)
kbrosnan
oh bogus. yeah like i said disable keyword.url.
ki7rw
maybe i'm being too paranoid but with all the cyberthieves around i want to reasonably certain that i'm at the correct website and have a ssl connection
prieur9
how do you disable this from the GUI?
kbrosnan
if it does not look like a vaild adress and there is not a dns record for the site it is sent to a search
prieur9
I know about about:config but I'm thinking of the average user here
kbrosnan
nope about:config
prieur9
so google have their tentacles dug pretty deep info FF eh?
kbrosnan
keyword.url is changeable
prieur9
not without doing the equivalent of Windows registry hacking. I'll check if it's been reported as a bug, otherwise do it myself.
thanks for your help, kb
kbrosnan
prieur9: please don't file a bug, it is a waste of the devs time
prieur9
kbrosnan: don't you think it's a privacy concern that it's impossible for the user to NOT get stuff sent to google without doing registry hacking?
and isn't privacy an important part of the browsing experience?
this should be in the GUI Preferences under Privacy
so should "block reported attack sites/forgeries" for that matter
since that also sends a list of all the sites you go to to Google
kbrosnan
the latter is
prieur9
the latter is under Security
kbrosnan
and it is not directly sent to google
prieur9
what do you mean
kbrosnan
google sends firefox a database with partial hashes of possible bad sites, firefox checks for a match locally. if there is a match firefox requests several full hashes from google. Google does not get to see every site you go to.
and does not know which blocked site you visited

Anyone know when that libnotify support is going to be released from trunk?

open
is there an extension that changes the conent of an html page seemlessly?
just that ver simple task
kbrosnan
greasemonkey?
open
that's a bit too complicated
I'm wanting something that shows the source code - I change something, and I can instantly see the result
I could save the page and do it, but I was hoping there was an extension for this already
kbrosnan
firebug or dom inspector
open
kbrosnan, that works, thanks
swerve
is there an extension for switching to "let web pages choose their own fonts" on the fly?
