hi
can anyone tell me if there is a list for mozilla repos mirrors for opensuse
mconnor
zak: I'm not sure what you're looking for
opensuse has Firefox packages, on the normal mirrors, aiui
zak
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2/ is sooooooooooooooooo slow
shevy
i tried to register a plugin
if i type "install://" as URI it should start a specific program
but firefox only tells me that it does not know what to do...
i register a string value in about:config
network.protocol-handler.expose.install
as value i give the path to the gftp binary (a graphical ftp client)
doesnt work :(
kbrosnan
shevy: install:// would need to be registered at the os level in gnomevfs
shevy
aha

umm wanna help maybe?
brlancer
ODST: Patience is a virtue. What Operating System/Version and Firefox version?
ODST
Linux and 3.5
brlancer
ODST: Which distribution and release of Linux and is it 3.5.0 or 3.5.? ?
Are you using the version of Linux from mozilla.org or from the distribution of Linux?
ODST
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091109 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.5
that help?
brlancer
ODST: How are you clearing history? Have you tried creating a new profile and testing it?
ODST
To clear it, I do CNTRL SHFT DEL and check all the boxes
brlancer
ODST: open Firefox and open the history sidebar
ODST
k
brlancer
when you clear history via CTRL+SHIFT+DEL, is the history cleared in the sidebar
?
ODST
yes
brlancer
and if you close Firefox, it opens back with your history?
ODST
when I open back, everythings cleared, but I type h in the address bar, and I get links
like suggestions
brlancer
What kind of suggestions? It's going to search all of your bookmarks also.
ODST
I don't have bookmarks
and it;s suggessting ites i've visted awhile back
brlancer
ODST: Create a new profile - "firefox -no-remote -ProfileManager" and test that profile
ODST
exactly how?
type that in terminal ?
brlancer
yes
         

ODST
:o working so far
brlancer
ODST: If the new profile works, it's likely either an extension you've added or something corrupted in your profile
try closing Firefox and starting it in SafeMode, which disables extensions
(if there isn't a menu option, "firefox -safe-mode" will do it)
ODST
Thanks man! Works great now!

Tatsh: | + | what just happened?
kbrosnan
netsplit? there are several irc servers that communicate with each other. one failed.
Tatsh

you're blaming me on a netsplit?
kbrosnan
no
Tatsh: i won't be able to evaluate the site it requres an account
Gadien
Tatsh: | + | what was that site? i went to it and for some reason i couldn't send anything back to IRC
Tatsh
kbrosnan: i haave screen shots 1 sec but i can't have 2 accounts for this site, against the sites' rules
kbrosnan
Gadien: there were several netsplits. there are several irc servers that communicate with each other. one failed.

Tatsh
and these menus don't work
and i can provide the script if you want to see
kbrosnan
Tatsh: i would try firefox's safe mode
Tatsh

Gadien

kbrosnan
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Troubleshooting+extensions+and+themes
Tatsh
well, i tried 2 profiles
so i know it's not firebug
kbrosnan
is adblock on each of the profiles? seeing as that is a ad network i would not be supprised to see that cause issues
Tatsh
no go on both profiles
no go on safe-mode
http://omploader.org/vMnk0OQ/firefox-does-not-work1.jpg
-safe-mode on my usual profile
adblock is disabled of course
kbrosnan
Tatsh: tools > error console > clear > reload the page > anything interesting listed?
Tatsh
when i hover
Warning: Expected color but found 'C0292D'. Error in parsing value for 'background-color'. Declaration dropped.

kbrosnan
anything more?
Tatsh
lots of parsing errors
kbrosnan
well seeing as that looks to be a css error one of those might be relevant
Tatsh
this one error
Error: Permission denied for <https://analytics.linksynergy.com> to call method Location.toString on <http://cli.linksynergy.com>.
but that doesn't sound likely to be the cause
kbrosnan

many "Same colors for color and background-color in two contexts" errors
Tatsh
i will say that adblock does cause some problems
so i have whitelisted this site
i can tell them
they want to keep their site going i'm sure and i bet most of their users are using firefox
just reported to them
