Is it possible to tunnel something THROUGH firefox, not firefox through something?
I can easily access things through the proxy when using Firefox, but it becomes much too complicated and even impossible to use a different program to access the internet and things like SSH.
I want to tunnel SSH through Firefox.
For example, in Firefox, I can access myip:22 and get a reply "SSH-2" but I cannot use PuTTY to tunnel through - I have been trying all year.
Is what I'm trying to do possible or not?
mavhc
other programs can't use the proxy and non proxy access is blocked?

mavhc: It uses NTLM authentication and is really bi**hy - it only works when you login with Windows Authentication.

I got an error while building firefox with make-platformini.py
Milos|Laptop
It will only work when something is disguised as a browser.

about some "unpack error"
I had to comment a few lines in this file and it worked, but I was wondering if there was a cleaner fix somewhere ?

Does firefox acurrately show the source code for your selection in 3.5?
when I select all (CTRL+A) then ask to view code for selection, it shows me three extra </div> tags. If I remove these using firebug, my page works beautifully
but i can't find where these </div> tags are in my actual code. they just aren't there

hi there, when I click in the downloads window on "open containing folder" I get the message "choose an application" on my fedora box. What can I do , and, why is it that it does not work automagically?

hey guys, i'm running 3.5.6pre on ubuntu x86_64 (9.04) ... firefox has this weird issue where it locks up every 15 to 20 seconds.. I can see the CPU spiking in gkrellm but I can't make sense of why
mouse wont click, pages won't scroll when it locks up for that 1 or 2 seconds
not sure where to begin looking... I cleared out my cache but that doesn't seemed to have helped

Hi, my friend lappy has some Virus and he's using an older version of Firefox --- I would like to remove Firefox profile from his HDD --- Where would it be stored at?
Cork
evil-sheek: The windows profile folder is a subfolder of the directory that opens when you hold the Windows Key and press R, then paste in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
evil-sheek
Cork: Thanks a lot --- =D

hi all! using tamper data can i change a GET request in post?
poppiez
I've written a small script in JavaScript that solves sudokus using a bruteforce method. obviously this requires a lot of iterations causing firefox to alert me with a box that the script is not responding (although if I click continue it gets solved momentarily after). is there a way to disable this warning in about:config or elsewhere?
Cork
poppiez: about:config => dom.max_script_run_time

Cork: nice. just what I needed. thank you :)

how come TED talks make firefox crash when opening _some other_ flash containing page afterwards?
is it just the flash plugin crashing?
xNinja
hello...is there a nice way to backup all thunderbird accounts and restore them ?
         

zimnyx

hi everyone
kbrosnan
xNinja: yes, get the profile folder. there are details about the profile folder at kb.mozillazine.org
xNinja: or #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org for more details
dgd
after awhile Fx loads pages very very slowly. I'm running in terminal and not seeing any errors but Fx is crawling!
xNinja
thanks kbrosnan :D

hi
why ssl web certificates firefox tells that are wrong? gmail, facebook, twitter all wrong :-/
blkdg
hi, can someone explain what an unvalid security certificate is?
kateweb
uashaly some one who hasent updated thoe certs
but it can also be fake
blkdg
there's an o'riley book called killer java game programming. it has a companiion website that i'd read in the past. i just went to it now, after a long absence, and FF is giving me a certificate error. should i allow it? what are the possible ramifications of allowing the certificate?
why would a site use these certificates anyhow?
linduxed
im pressing ctrl+plus but instead of page zoom i get text zoom
why|?
blkdg
ok thanks
Garp
Hi.
Question: is there a way to present another certificate to a page that request one after having trying some? FF never ask the question to me, always present teh wro,ng one so I cannot use the page :( Thanks.

Is Firefox-2.0 supported on Ubuntu 64 bit Feisty
?
kierank
Hi, Is the backend server stuff for firefox's crash management system publically available at all?
Cork[home]
kierank: wht do you mean?
sploozer: if you install 32bit libs it whould work just fine
but why would you want ff2??
kierank
Cork[home], well I mean the whole system for dealing with user-submitted crashdumps on the server-side
Cork[home]
kierank: you'r looking for the crash data with symbols?
or what?
kierank
Basically I help out a project which has tens of thousands of crashdumps a day and we need a system for managing those. I would imagine firefox would have a well developed process for handling crashdumps which we would like to replicate
Cork[home]
ok
kierank: your best option would prob be to ask in #webdev or #breakpad @ irc.mozilla.org
kierank
Cork[home], ok; thanks for your help

hi, in the "download actions" menu, when I pick "open .foo files with this application:", is there any way to give the application extra arguments?
jeev
is it normal to see firefox open a day, use it pretty often, keep windows open and have ram usage up 500+ megs, laggy and what not? it's always been like this
ychaouche
Hello,
What should I use selenium IDE or Molybdenum ?
dare
is there a setting I can modify to enable direct execution of files in downloads dialog?
this is of particular issue on ubuntu, cannot double-click on doc, docx even
ychaouche
dare, preferences > applications
works for me
on ubuntu
ff 3.5
dare
hm, that's a start thanks
ychaouche
dare, didn't try doc specificaly tho'
dare
but.. it would be nice for all files to just be opened with gnome-open
so I do not have to specify every file type and associated application
ychaouche
dare, gnome-open is not available on all platforms, firefox is
dare, it's not trivial do implement a feature like that
dare
yes, I guess I need to just write a tool to copy my gnome preferences to ff config
ychaouche: I don't recall having this issue on windows, it seems to be able to open using the specified default application there?
ychaouche
dare, true
dare
the windows ff version certainly has modifications for windows integration
this should be the case for gnome maybe
ychaouche
dare, are you using mozilla version of ubuntu modified version ?
dare
ubuntu modified version
although the ubuntu community takes no responsibility for this issue, saying it's mozilla's decision to implement gnome-open support
ychaouche
dare, mozilla could say it's up to the gnome community to implement it :p

no P2P tho, it will tear them out
house
i`d better encrypt them
but does your printer print chocolate ?
Garak
the always open checkbox when downloading torrents dosn't seem to work, it always ask me what I want to do, is there a fix for this
ychaouche
Garak, are you trying to download choclates by any chance ?
Garakn because they're not very suitable for torrents
Garak, also make sure that firefox is the default browser on your cannon printer
Garak
I don't even like choclates
ychaouche
Garak, if you have an HP printer, make sure that the black cartridge is not empty
Garak, what's your OS ?
Garak
winxp
ychaouche
Garak, did you get service pack 3 ?
clarjon1
nngggh

clarjon1, did you try to strace what firefox does behind the scene ?
clarjon1
no, it used to work
ychaouche
clarjon1, if you're a C expert maybe you could have a clue
clarjon1
i'm not a c expert
ychaouche
clarjon1, Ah. It used to work.
clarjon1
I'll try recompiling
My guess is that it's trying to call older printer lib functions
or who knows what
i'll just compile a fresh 3.5.5 and see how that floats lol
