so when i view a page it's stored in firefox's cache. can i access this data or is it stored in a non-user friendly format?

kbrosnan: thank you, since didn't write my nick, I did not notice it, sorry
kbrosnan: I check it now
kbrosnan: nothing changed!
kbrosnan
SepehrLajevardi: using !important?
SepehrLajevardi
kbrosnan: oh, no. let me try

Hi, is there any way to disable cross domain xhrget security in Firefox > 3 for development use, I cannot alter the headers the server sends and setting up a proxy seems like overkill
SepehrLajevardi
kbrosnan: nothing!
kbrosnan:
.bookmark-item:hover > .toolbarbutton-icon{
border: 1px solid #ccc !important;
}
kbrosnan
g^: https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Same-origin_policy_for_file:_URIs
SepehrLajevardi
kbrosnan: thank you for your help kbrosnan, I have to go
g^
kbrosnan: ye, but that is for local files only, how about situation where writing gui with Dojo (local js & html) that uses live server to fetch json.
         

kbrosnan
SepehrLajevardi: getting that sort of things sorted out takes a bit of work

yep, I did read that one, but seems like if I cannot alter the origin header in response, there is little else I can do?
kbrosnan
maybe the tamperdata extension would allow you to correct the headers
g^
kbrosnan: good idea, definetly worth a try... Thanks!

Hello, does anyone know why nothing appears in Firefox with <span style="font-family: Roman; font-size: 15pt;">Roman font</span> ?
kbrosnan
infinisoft: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=512183 aparently
infinisoft
kbrosnan: thanks

I notice that the documentation on https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Reference/Objects/Date/getYear talks about returning either a 2 or 4 digit year.
But as of 2010 the getYear() function is returning 3 digits
gavin
that page doesn't make any mention of 4 digit years, as far as I can tell
and it describes quite clearly why you now get three digit years...

heyho
can i supply firefox with different policies for the jvm?
Gh3rssp
Hello to you too.
crazy_imp
(and if yes, how?)
or can i set a policy file created with javas policytool?
dylanb
hello, I'm looking for a developer knowledgable in Firefox extensions. Who knows enough to build something like Firebug (but not with the debugging features - other totally unrelated features). What we like about Firebug is the way it integrates into the Chrome and how it interacts with the events and content of the browser window.
Anyone here know anyone?
sixtila
hey guys, looks like colorzilla doesnt work with 3.5.7
is there any fix/alternative
rjohnson19
sixtila: Works fine for me in 3.6pre. Are you saying its reporting as not compatible?
sixtila
just found that the problem is different
i cant install any addon
it just says connectiong
and nothing happens
rjohnson19
What does 'nslookup releases.mozilla.org' say in a command line?
sixtila
one addon finally got installed after 10 mins or so
do you need the output to see
rjohnson19
Probably won't help much. Sounds like a connectivity / DNS issue.
sixtila
probably,
at first when i download from the site, it takes 5 mins
just to get to the download point
is it temporary?
or can be permanent
it says connecting to releases.mozilla.org in the status bar and thats it
         

rjohnson19
Hopefully temporary. Unless you've always had problems getting add-ons from releases.m.o
sixtila
hope its temporary
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/271/addon-271-latest.xpi?src=addondetail
because: Download error
-228
rjohnson19
sixtila: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unable_to_install_themes_or_extensions_-_Firefox#Download_Error_-228
sixtila
could it be i m having some virus/spyware?
i m in ubuntu
rjohnson19
I find this highly unlikely ;-)
sixtila
doe ie tab or ie view work for ubuntu also?

hi
when I upload videos to Metacafe or Megaupload, Firefox hangs
as soon as the file has finished uploading, the browser continues to work as usual

hey guys
is there a way to "force" a crash report from a user standpoint
I'm hitting some deadlock in one of my users browsers, and I'd like to get them to submit a crash report to help me find the issue, but it doesn't show up because it doesn't crash
subsume
How can I delete individual remembered-username items?
there must be a registry somewhere
(i accidentally typed my password into a username box and its remembered)
kbrosnan
subsume: hover over the entry with the mouse and press delete, or use the arrow keys to select the entry and press delete
subsume
kbrosnan: I'm on OSX... the delete isn't working
kbrosnan
shift delete on that os i believe
subsume
yer awesome, thanks.

Anyone around able to help with a tricky problem?
hellyeah
hey
firefox people
i am in some trouble
Could not launch Adobe Reader 8.1.7. Please make sure it exists in PATH variable in the environment. If the problem persists, please reinstall the application.
what is that error
Accesshater
i think adobe reader is not installed correctly
hellyeah
i used
i in stalöl adobe from source
and i sed ./install_browser_plugin
told me that
Installation successful.
/home/benebioglu/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so has been added.
This will enable the plugin for Mozilla, Firefox and Netscape.
dolske
you might need to logout before it starts working... or try launching FF from the commandline with PATH set appropriately.
hellyeah
hmm
log out from system
camn i ask
what is that silly character http://paste.org/pastebin/view/14479
dolske
looks like something printing garbage.
hellyeah
and i have two crashing reports
wait a sec
http://paste.org/pastebin/view/14481
i saw these two crashes within 2 minutes
definitely firefox has a trouble with adobe
third crash report while trying to pdf
luxigo
why does firefox print only one page although the body is scrollable ?
i have to save as html and print with openoffice..

where does rhythmbox keep its files? which directory in my home directory that is
jmut
why flash is sooooooooooooooooo sucky for linux :(
Accesshater1
jmut flash always has been sucky
jmut
Accesshater1: why thing is why. on windows it's perfect. isn't it open standard or something. I am not into it but just wondering how it could be sooo awful
..on linux
Accesshater1
adobe is closed source. nothing to do about it.
there is an open source implementation but that sucks even more
jmut what flash version are you running?
jmut
Accesshater1: 10.0 r32 sorry didn't see you typing
Accesshater1
well there is nothing to do about that i think. you can try to search for posts that explain how to increase the flash performance
if possible
ShamRock
Hi
I have fedora12 as my OS and Mozilla/5.0; Linux x86_64. I like to know if I install the "DownThemAll" which is download manager, does this work with my firefox.
Anyone knows about my issue of DownThemAll download manager?
RLa
i have a problem with thunderbird
i know this is firefox channel but i found no thunderbird channel
anyway, i would like to create a plain text message, i select Options -> Format -> Plain Text Only
however, when i paste some stuff into the mail, all links are formatted in blue color
i do not think that's plain text
kbrosnan_
RLa: #thunderbird is on irc.mozilla.org

wwalker
I want to be able to hand enter file paths in a file upload dialog. Every time I click in the filename field, a file selector pops up. I need to enter hidden directories which the file selector won't do. plus I can type it a lot faster than selecting with a browser.
anyone know which thing under about:config will let me enter my own filenames? or at least something that allows viewing hidden files/directories?
xangua
¿¿
wwalker
xangua: well said
xangua
hidden files¿¿ have you tried Control+H to show them wwalker¿
wwalker
xangua: thanks! that works! I'd still prefer to type in the paths instead of using the file selector
xangua
Control+L ¿
jum
kbrosnan
wwalker: not possible
wwalker
:( thx kbrosnan

I figured out how to tunnel IRC through http using a form!
working example here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3893190/proggit.html
Cork[home]
tunnel irc through http using form??
what are you talking about?
tolkad
check the page source
it's in a hidden frame
Cork[home]
browsers can't handle the irc protocol, so what your explaining isn't posible...
tolkad
yes it is
Cork[home]
you need to have a cgi script or something
tolkad
It uses a text/plain enctype
and sends the data through POST
the ircd ignores all the http headers
it's not interactive obviously
but I can make it spam a channel
Cork[home]
nice, and thats what we all are here to do... spam channels -_-'
tolkad
lol
I just think it's interesting
Cork[home]
i don't

hey ppl, why does not ff display my svg image in an <img ...> tag!?!
soupdragon
hi
im just wondering if i can make devanagari text much larger than default? but not have to scale up the english language bits
I found some 'advanced' option in the font setting but don't think that does it :Sa
mconnor
soupdragon: I don't think there's prefs to do per-language or per-script font sizes
soupdragon
aww om
ok*
do you think there's any way I can sort of wedge this feature into firefox
I found a plugin that might do it actually
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13106
how do you get the source code ?
it sasy Mozilla Public License, version 1.1 but I can't find it :?
whoever

unicode points for thai

whoever
soupdragon: are you trying to do this to every page
soupdragon
