hi
I can't find where i can remove firefox key bindings.
Except here http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html#keys
Which show a pretty ugly way to do it.
But may be the only one too.
Not sure my problem come from the binds
Actually I have a bind on ctrl+alt+k which change my keyboard layout
and it doesn't change my layout in firefox
but the binding work (I just tried the same bind with an other action (running xkill))
Why the hell I can't change my layout in firefox oO
Damnit, i'm in dvorak and it still write in qwerty >_>
Only in firefox text stuff.
Ok, found the problem myself, googling right know.
"Current language must be ignored when a shortcut"
I lol'd
And restarting firefox using the other layout works.
That's so crappy.
I don't remember having this bug before.
Huuuuum.

towardme

kbrosnan
os?
towardme

kbrosnan
http://wiki.mozilla-x86-64.com/Firefox:Download
note that firefox 3.5 and 3.6 don't have accelerated (jit) javascript for x64 builds
towardme
*sigh*
no 64bit firefox extension?
kbrosnan
most non-binary extensions should work. most plugins will not work
towardme

Hey! Is there anyway I can create an instance of firefox that is "self contained" that closes to the taskbar?
I'd like to have a tab of facebook chat open that closes to the task bar, like msn messenger does

Does anyone know how to backup and restore your firefox state for a hdd format? I don't want to have to reinstall all my add ons again. Saving the documents and settings dir seems obvious but I bet it doesn't work.
cryton
yeh there's an extension for that
let me see if my brain can remember it for me
FEBE perhaps
Adamanta2
nice one.
an add on for backing up add ons
but I wonder if it backs up itself.

https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Developer_Guide/Build_Instructions/Linux_Prerequisites the given two commnads will automatically install mercurial?
kbrosnan
huh?
g_khatwani123
whether the given two commnads will automatically install mercurial?

apt-get install mercurial though i get it from python's easy install
P-Luc_Auclair
does anyone know if Firefox is going to support h264 in its internal player ?
kbrosnan
P-Luc_Auclair: no, mpeg-la requires non-transferable licensing
P-Luc_Auclair
didn't Chromium decide to implement it via FFMPEG ?
is the submarine threat this important ?
and Safari too ?
I guess Google and Safari already own their rights to it though..
kbrosnan
P-Luc_Auclair: google licences it through youtube
correct
P-Luc_Auclair
I've been doing tests and Theora really isn't up to the task, the encoding is much worse
how about Dirac ?
kbrosnan
http://ffmpeg.org/legal.html fairly clearly states that you will be sued by the mpeg patent holders
P-Luc_Auclair
:)
kbrosnan
driac sucks at low bitrates from what everyone tells me
P-Luc_Auclair
didn't they do a shrodinger something codec based on it, I know nothing about that one though
I hope this whole patent issue isn't gonna hinder HTML5 and Firefox

i have a bittorrent client installed on ubuntu, firefox wants to tell me where the program is
does anyone know where i point it exactly?
xangua
what client┬┐
do you use gnome desktop┬┐
laeg
azureues
yes gnome
ubuntu 9.10
client installed with synaptic
xangua:
kbrosnan
likely becuase the site served the file with a bad mime type or content disposition attachemet
laeg
xangua: ty i got it by finding with which vuze and pointing ff to /usr/bin/vuze
kbrosnan: not a bad mime type, just needed to change bt client from transmission
away
kbrosnan
that needs to be configured at the os level
OttifantSir
How do I block popups in Firefox? Especially two sites: creatives.livejasmin.com and www.partypoker.com. These pop up regardless of them being AdBlocked or marked unreliable in NoScript and being blocked in the firewall.
And all three at once
kbrosnan
your not using noscript correctly if you are getting popups
OttifantSir
Then tell me, how do I use it? Some sites I visit opens these popups when I try place the marker in a search box, and if I deny the site, I can't use it
Hello?
kbrosnan: Not very helpful telling someone they're not doing it right, then shutting up.
kbrosnan
i don't use noscript currently too much hassle
they have a support forum at http://forums.informaction.com/viewforum.php?f=7
in genreal it should be set to block all scripts by default then only allow the scripts that are needed for your site to function
OttifantSir
Yes, I have that option ticked
But as I said, if I allow the main site, then place the marker in the site's search box, these two pop up.
So, how do I block these sites?
kbrosnan
use the icon in the lower right? i've not used noscript in a year or more and even then it was only for a couple weeks
OttifantSir
How do I use FIREFOX to block these sites from opening?
kbrosnan
disable javascript globaly
tools > options > content > enable javascript
OttifantSir
But then I can't use apx 90% of the sites I visit.
