I'm sorry to ask a question of such obvious stupidity, but what setting did I change in about:config if now after pressing ctrl+w in a popup window makes it display the home page in the popup window instead of closing it?
Or maybe there is somekind of setting history I could take a look at?
auscompgeek
:S
that...isn't right...
wait..
it should actually open a "new tab" in place of it so that the window still exists...
Raccoon
i know there's a plugin
allows the closing of the last tab, and replaces it with a new tab
think it's simply called Last Tab
auscompgeek
actually, isn't it just a Firefox pref?
Raccoon
might be, i dunno
auscompgeek
oh, wait...
um...
Raccoon
i know there's an extention though
auscompgeek
(Action) shrugs
Pinchiukas
auscompgeek: yes, I guess that's what happens.
It kind of prevents the window from being closed.
How can I turn that off?
         

auscompgeek
I don't know...
Pinchiukas
:(
Any hints?
auscompgeek
about:config?
Pinchiukas
Yes.
And now the window is showing my bookmarks toolbar.
Earlier the popup windows didn't show it.
And the address bar too.

how would I know if Firefox considers a specific image "tagged" re: color management?
auscompgeek
?
tazle_
the setting gfx.color_management.mode is by default 2, or "for tagged graphics only"
I have some images that should have embedded color profiles, but Firefox doesn
doesn't seem to be converting them to the display profile like e.g. Photoshop
hm, perhaps I need to set gfx.color_management.display_profile for it to do anything?
auscompgeek
...
probably...
maybe not...
tazle_
well, I would assume it would dig out the display profile from wherever Windows sticks it
hm, apparently Firefox is limited to ICCv2 profiles
even changing Firefox to specifically use the monitor profile and settinggfx.color_management.mode to all images doesn't produce any visible changes

hi guys. is there a way to start a download in DownThemAll from the command line?
ans-maxnet
the menu, Help --> Help Contents, does "Contents" is short for "Table of Contents" ?
Gh3rssp
No
It sends you to sumo (support.mozilla.com)
although...
There could be a better name
ans-maxnet
In general, "contents" is short for "table of contents"?
Gh3rssp
Correct
But not here
kbrosnan
it use to go to more of a table of contents

Err.

bubsy in about:config there is the name browser.formfill.enable

dunno if it will work, but its worth trying

Is there a way to force firefox to use ipv6 first?
Right now Firefox is going to www.sixxs.net via IPv4, which is incorrect.
It should go to the IPv6 one first.

Firefox 3.5.6 doesn't show the fullscreen option (F11) under the View menu anymore. I tried disabling all extensions and resetting my user preferences, but it just isn't there... I'm not sure if this happened with 3.5.6 or earlier. Any ideas?
