hi where can i find the certain requerment list for xulrunner?
when i try to run firefox 3.5.5 i get this "./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" but the file is in place, whats the problem?
ychaouche
lxsameer, it's not looking in the correct directory
where is libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 ?
lxsameer
ychaouche: /usr/lib/
ychaouche
lxsameer, did you compile firefox, downloaded the binaries or used your system's packet ?
lxsameer
ychaouche: downloaded it
ychaouche
lxsameer, make sure the filename is really the same, like there's no .0 at the end or something
lxsameer, it should find it
lxsameer
ychaouche: not yet

is there a config setting that will let me do XHR requests against another domain? I'm using 3.5.5
Alphos
Erocksteady i was about to ask the same question XD

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/HTTP_access_control i'm currently looking at this ; problem is, i catch an error using the first "simple request" defined there
Erocksteady
see, I was getting an error, then I upgraded to 3.5.5 and I don't get an error anymore, xhrobject.open is just returning false
clarjon1
XHR?
Erocksteady
xmlhttprequest

Hi,I have a little problem, I'd like firefox to open last tabs on start up
unfortunatly then I closed firefox for first time I've selected to close tabs and dont ask me again
so now then firefox starts up, it shows me one blank tab :(
auscompgeek
Tools => Options => General => On startup Firefox will: open previous tabs
something like that...
aisbaa
Yes Iv'e set it so
but firefox still starts up with one blank tab

Google tries to force users to use the google chrome changing the code page of google.com
is it fair?
google tries to force users to use the google chrome changing the source code of their page.
clarjon1
huh?
whatchoo on about?
novato_br: What conspiracy is this you are speaking of?
novato_br: Are you trying to say that the cool jquery fading effect is a conspiracy to force users to use Chrome?!?
novato_br
I'm not claiming a conspiracy theory, but it is good to keep our eyes open.
they've changed their source code
         

clarjon1
ooooh
so?
they updated it
Aren't they allowed to do so?
novato_br
yeah, they do
but it can be danger
clarjon1
i don't see any YOU MUST USE CHROME TO USE THIS PAGE messages
How exactly are they FORCING users to use chrome?
I can't even see any links to it!
novato_br
changing the code
clarjon1
...
novato_br: Most users will not notice a change in the code
novato_br
it is possible other browser can't read code that was made for chrome
clarjon1
Only geeks and very knowledgable users will notice a change in the code
novato_br: Can i tell you something?
novato_br: If Chrome can read it, Safari can read it too.
novato_br
surely
clarjon1, don't u afraid? The power is in google's hand
they can do everything to obey us
to use products of them
clarjon1
ooooh yeah i'm so scared of a company that has gone out of it's way to help improve Firefox, Linux, Open Source projects, my mail service, my search experience, and even went so far as to call me when needed their help after an account got broken into.
novato_br: where is this chrome specific code you speak of that FORCES people to use chrome. Pastebin the proof, or no more, thank you.
novato_br
hum
i don't trust in google anymore
clarjon1
novato_br: Otherwise, you are spreading FUD, and you are just as bad as the people that say LINUX IS NOT READY FOR THE DESKTOP BECAUSE I HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE 10 YEARS AGO HURR HURR HURR
novato_br: If you are going to accuse, provide proof.
novato_br
clarjon1, people have their own opinions! If you say that linux is bad, so it is
clarjon1
You're not reading what i say
read the WHOLE sentence please
novato_br
ok
so, I am going to be those people that say: "linux is sux 'cause I had a bad experience 10 years ago"
ahauheuahue
clarjon1
novato_br: You are spreading FUD
novato_br
no
clarjon1
yes
You come in here
novato_br
I am not spreading anything
clarjon1
making accusations
and you have no PROOF
novato_br
you're mistake, clarjon1
clarjon1
Really?
novato_br
I can say anything
clarjon1
WHere is the proof then?
Show me this chrome-only code you are accusing them of using
novato_br
This is called freedom of expression.
clarjon1
Proof of accusations, please.
oh, do you know what FUD is?
novato_br
Why there is a delay for firefox, opera, safari and isn't there delay for chrome?
clarjon1
what delay
novato_br
wouldn't that proof?
clarjon1
The only delay i have with firefox is the "Resolving address for www.google.com"
In fact, my firefox connects to web sites (including google!) faster than chrome does
novato_br
FUD => Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt.
clarjon1
actually, my LYNX browser connects and loads google the fastes
*fastest
novato_br
thanks for your considerations, clarjon1
clarjon1
novato_br: I'm still waiting for the "proof" here.
I don't see anything that is chrome specific
novato_br
from now I will keep my concerns to just me. There isn't freedom expression anymore.
clarjon1
and i'm looking at the source in both chrome and firefox, and konqueror.
novato_br: You were accusing somebody of wronging people, with no proof.
novato_br
:(
clarjon1
novato_br: I do believe that what you were doing is called "slander" and is a chargable offense.
novato_br
bye bye
clarjon1
novato_br: Oh, and just to let you know.
novato_br
ok, i wait
clarjon1
novato_br: I was really hoping that you could provide some actual proof
novato_br: Cuz i need material to blog about XD
oh, fun fact:
Wave loads faster in my firefox :D
performs better in safari, than Chrome, actually, i've found
novato_br: And besides, most users will NOT give up firefox after using it with adblock plus lol
novato_br
I give up ff
ff is heavy
i am going to opera
clarjon1
oooh boy
good luck saying those things there
novato_br
and ff doesn't render 3acid in 100%
clarjon1
heh
novato_br: AdBlockPlus :D
novato_br
i know
clarjon1
have fun with your banner ads
and inpage adverts
and slow adserver connections
novato_br
ad never has bothered me.
adblock is useful to whom visit porn pages
who*

Anyone got a clue why scrolling the wolfram alpha page is so horribly /slow/?
It almost looks like Firefox is redrawing the page for every scroll event
clarjon1
hm
Baughn: any particular WA page?
Baughn
Any result page.
http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=weather+here <-- This one, for example
clarjon1
what FF version, os, etc
oooh it knows where i am
niceee
Baughn
Version 1.9.1.5, gecko/20091106, shiretoko/2.5.5
3.5.5, rather
..hang on, 1.9.1.5? -_-
Hm. Says shiretoko 3.5.5 on the about page
And Arch64 for the OS
clarjon1
odd
i'm not seeing this
I'm running FF3.5.5 as well
Debian 64
Baughn
Let me try with a clean profile
adac
firefox doesn't remember any password on a restart. What can I do?
kbrosnan
how are you asking firefox to remember it?
Baughn
clarjon1: Aha
clarjon1: Try setting general.smoothScroll to True
clarjon1
hmmm
oh, i don't like that setting
too slow of a scroll for me lol
Baughn
It's supposed to be the same speed
But there you go, then. The slowness is obviously a bug.
clarjon1
i percieve a delay
therefore i no like
XD
adac
kbrosnan, Ohh I just seen it, it was enabled that ff clears private data everytime
Baughn
Since the page doesn't actually change, it shouldn't peg the CPU
..I can sort of understand it for position:fixed elements, but the page doesn't have any of those
clarjon1
(Action) gets to go visit family
hehe
Baughn
Firefox really needs to start using some opengl composition.
This software rendering is ridiculous.
clarjon1
hey i wonder if you could make an extension to make it do that
Baughn
No.
clarjon1
awh
that's a shame
Baughn
It'd require some serious rewriting of core FF components
Actually, I don't think there are any browsers that do it..
It's the obvious thing to do, though, on modern hardware
clarjon1
lol
make sure it's an option
not enabled by default
(Action) knows people that use it on older hardware
Baughn
It could come with a lost of hardware that it works on, and suggest enabling it on those
..that's hardly the point.
clarjon1
lol
Baughn
FF internals are so baroque and, frankly, overdesigned, it'll never happen.
clarjon1
it might in FF4 lol
Baughn
I haven't heard of anyone trying
kbrosnan
Baughn: it can use accelerated drawing through cairo
Baughn
kbrosnan: It clearly doesn't.
Unless you mean the solution is to rewrite cairo to use opengl acceleration

hello, I have wrote a answer in a forum thread. but this stupid SMF-Forum said after sending the answer that im not logged in. so I logged in. When I go back to the inputfield the text I wrote is gone. When I go to the next site it tells me I already have wrote the text. But its not in the forum. So the answer I wrote is in post-data. How can I see the post-data in FF? I dont have installed live http-headers at the moment...
does anyone know a answer?
anyone?
can someone help me?
m-i-l-a-n
(Action) cant believe this still happens
Digicrime
