Sorry to bother you for a question which is doubtless stupid, but being under ubuntu karmic and using firefox 3.5, how to reactivate the function(office) of recording of the passwords? After several attempts which this link http: // forum.ubuntu-fr.org / viewtopic.php? Pid=3025354 no improvement, idem by trying to download the add we secure login, have you a solution?

How to place urlbar at bottom of window?
towardme
uhsf: You there?
uhsf
yes
i tried #urlbar-container but i think the styling has to be applied higher in the urlbar hierarchy
i can't find what's above #urlbar-container
_Steve_
anyone knowledgable about linux theme issues around? i'm wondering why firefox looks ugly under kde4 until i run gnome-settings-daemon.
kbrosnan
because firefox looks for gdk desktop settings
and does not look for kde settings
uhsf: check userstyles.org for a bottom urlbar style
uhsf
i searched already, if you think there is one i will search again a while
i don't think it can be done with css. do you think hacking browser.xul will do or it will break?
how to replace a chrome .xul file?
         

_Steve_
kbrosnan: ok. i've setup a gtk theme in .gtkrc-2.0, but even that doesn't kick in until i start g-s-d. why?
(thanks for the response, btw)
oh wow, if i kill gnome-settings-daemon, firefox gets ugly again. weird!
uhsf
ah, i just hacked the browser.jar/browser.xul file to place location bar at bottom and it worked
i must be the only person in the world to have firefox location bar at bottom
_Steve_
there are a lot of people in the world.
uhsf
yes, and only I have Firefox location bar at bottom of the window!
_Steve_
maybe, maybe not. :)

Hi, I was wondering why my firefox isn't loading to the next page, it just loads and loads, and it takes forever to load. Does anyone know if it is like a bug or something?
uhsf
location bar at bottom is possible with css finally. i guess other people already use it that way.
frogzoo
if I create a tagged bookmark "g" for say google search "
I wonder if the devs even know they busted it?
kbrosnan
doubt it is busted
frogzoo
maybe it's a "feature"
kbrosnan
that is a core functionally that is stop ship afik
and i use it daily, so i know it is not broken
frogzoo
heh, it's not broken for you
it only manifests when you use the %s replacement
kjoonlee
frogzoo: that's funny. I use %s replacement all the time and it works in 3.x
frogzoo: Although I must admit I use %S more often
frogzoo
is there a link that describes the macros available?
well I've tried this on independently on 3 different machines, and it's equally broken on all of them
kjoonlee
frogzoo: Can you show us the link in question?
I don't know where I saw it, but %S is needed if you use multibyte characters
this works for me: http://www.google.com.au/search?q=%s
frogzoo
it's quite simple, bookmark "
kjoonlee
Well, search?%s doesn't work. It's missing the q
q=
frogzoo
kjoonlee: I still get "g ####"
kjoonlee
Are you sure you have only one bookmark with that keyword?
frogzoo
under "tags" - there's only one bookmark
         

kjoonlee
I've got "Tags:" empty and "Keyword:" gw
and it works.
If I have it the other way round, then I get "gw blah" as my search
frogzoo
oh right you are, thanks so much
kjoonlee
hehe :)
luther333
WOW, I didn't know there was a firefox IRC channel.
What do you guys talk about in general? I didn't think firefox needed much support (its a nice browser)
I do have a problem though: I recently installed a plugin/addon called: Hide Caption Titlebar (which hides the titlebar alltogether) and since then my status bar has dissappeared and I cannot get it back without disabling this plugin. (but I also really need this plugin) how can I make this work ?
anyone alive ?
Psinetic
hey everyone. i'm having a bit of a problem. i'm using firefox on Ubuntu 9.10 64bit. i just added the facebook dislike button to my firefox and tried to use it but it's not doing anything at all. when i hover over the link it shows javascript whatever at the status bar, but it doesn't do anything. is there something wrong with my java?
uk_cam

>if Firefox offers to remember a username and password, but when hitting the "Remember" button, doesn't save it, is it a programming flaw in the website's code?
dErFz
for the tab part of firefox, how do i use the logo instead of the full name of the page?
kbrosnan
browser.tabs.tabMaxWidth 0 or there is a tab iconify extension
dErFz
i wasnt clear on that, i meant: http://www.picsend.net/images/276809howto.JPG how to iconify that
gavin
just remove the titles?
sahilsk
why my firefox browser took lots of time before opening.? i have installed mant addon in it.. so are they responsible for them??
kbrosnan
dErFz: right click choose properties, remove the name
dErFz
yep got it
do you know how i can include icon?
kbrosnan
depends on the site to set a favicon
dErFz
what is that part of the bar called?
bookmark toolbar?
kbrosnan
i know there was an extension to change icons back around firefox 2, not sure if it has been updated
yes
bookmarks toolbar
though slashdot should have an icon

Cork[home]

How to flip Firefox GTK tabs vertically? How to tell Firefox to use GTK tabs for the bottom of a window?
gn_
sahilsk1:checked with the fixes released.. i have ubuntu 9.04 and i fail to install flash 10,the fix available is for installation error and i have flashplugin installed without any errors though
steal_this_name
firefox has crashed a few times lately, and it's starting to bother me. how do i figure out why it's crashing?
sahilsk1
oooh.. ok.
same with me steal_this_name.
akem
hey
sahilsk1
HI
gn_
how can i fix it?
still cannot play videos..
akem
when i set my firefox window to use transparency on windows 7 i can't move or resize this firefox window then
sahilsk1
gn_ try lauching firefox in safe mode//
akem
any idea about this problem?
steal_this_name
sahilsk1: is it the thing where firefox freezes like every 10 seconds, and it freezes for longer and longer until you only have 2 seconds out of every 10 to interact with firefox, and then you wake up next morning and all your browser windows are gone and there's just one little firefox dialog about a crash of some kind?
sahilsk1
lol
steal_this_name
right now, it's freezing for about 0.7s
in 4 days, it will crash
sahilsk1
lol....
steal_this_name
it's so predictable, i just can't believe there's no way to analyze it
kbrosnan
steal_this_name: os? if non-linux try typing about:crashes in the address bar
sahilsk1
mine is ms window.. xp
steal_this_name
kbrosnan: "No crash reports have been submitted."
what was that supposed to tell me?
kbrosnan
that would have a list of crashes that were caught by the mozilla crash reporter
steal_this_name
i'm running xp, in case that helps
i've had like at least 10 crashes caught by that
why aren't they listed there?
kbrosnan
have you submitted them?
steal_this_name
of course not
kbrosnan
are your plugins up to date? http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/
steal_this_name
so, wait, it only lists submitted crashes?
kbrosnan
yes
steal_this_name
wtf? how is that useful at all?
also, what is that plugin check page supposed to say?
kbrosnan
trade off between privacy and collection of crash data
steal_this_name
last time i was asked about submitting crash data, it said it would tell about "the url i was on"
kbrosnan
if you visit it in firefox it should list any plugins inkstalled
steal_this_name
which is the url i was on? IT DOESN'T SAY!
kbrosnan
the front most tab
gn_
sahilsk1:tried safe mode as well.. none of them work!
steal_this_name
kbrosnan: which tab?
kbrosnan
the one that last had focus before the crash
steal_this_name
how do i know which that was?
akem
nobody uses transparency with firefox?
kbrosnan
the crash reporter should come up directly after a crash, i guess they expect you to have an idea what was the last tab you were interacting with
steal_this_name
akem: how do i determine whether i "use transparency with firefox"?
uhsf
How does Firefox draw it's tabs? Where are tabs in GTK object hierarchy?
I'd like to flip Firefox tabs vertically or make it use the tabs for the bottom of a window.
kbrosnan
akem: most just use an extension
steal_this_name
kbrosnan: unfortunately, computers don't work that way
sahilsk1
gn_ are u using adobe flash plugin?
akem
steal_this_name: your firefox window is transparent
in windows you can set any window to use transparency
steal_this_name
akem: it isn't
kbrosnan
uhsf: it does not do gtk tabs, it emulates them
uhsf
kbrosnan: do you know in what chrome file exactly?
kbrosnan
not off the top of my head
sahilsk1
gn_: why don't u try, unistalling the gnash: opensource flash plugin and installing the adobe flash plugin. here the step by step guide.. I don't knw if it can help you, but , just trying from ma side.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=636397
gn_
sahilsk1:yup.. using adobe flash installer...
mlgpro-crazy
are there keyboard shortcuts to navigate tabs
kbrosnan
gn_: yes but make sure using the synaptic package manager that gnash, libflash or swfdec are not installed
gn_
ya.. uninstalled them..
m-i-l-a-1
mlgpro-crazy: try alt+numbers
mlgpro-crazy
k
noep
nope*
kbrosnan
or ctl depending on your os
mlgpro-crazy
its win xp

(Action) wonders if there is a way to force Fx to automatically activate/focus the first input field on a newly visited site
gn_
sahilsk1:i have removed and installed flashplugin-nonfree for 4 times by now!
yet again this didn't work
sahilsk1
lol oh.. my.. .
kbrosnan
m-i-l-a-n: greasemonkey and the correct script should allow for it
sahilsk1
why not u try posting @ubuntu forum..
m-i-l-a-n
kbrosnan: thanks I'll see if i can script something
got really hooked to this behaviour being standard after having used conkeror
gn_
hmmm
sahilsk1
kbrosnan
from the command line locate libflashplayer.so
and remove all copies then reinstall using nonfree
gn_
thanks for the patience... i ll give a try
sahilsk1
................np
steal_this_name
ok, wow. there's no way i'm scrolling through all those quits.
how do i find out why firefox keeps freezing like this?
does anyone else notice firefox pausing every so often?
gn_
sahilsk1:kbrosnan:neither of them worked:-(
sahilsk1
....oh.. damn..
steal_this_name
i think it's more often than 10 seconds now
sahilsk1
lol
.7 to 10 second... such a great leap forward.. :P
steal_this_name
it paused 3 times while i typed that, and another 2 times while i typed this
gn_
btw,why remove-install cycle is needed?(im a noob here)
steal_this_name
this is ridiculou<pause>s
surely this thing about firefox pausing is so obv<pause>ious that someone would have given me a url by now
gn_
i have no clue where exactly im going wrong!
steal_this_name
whoa! i can't view the topic here?
