I cant get firefox to start in windows xp x64. Any ideas? I can see that the process is running. But that's it.
xangua
maybe because they aren't any 64 bit official build
kbrosnan
kill any firefox.exe processes and try again
judgen
thats another thing, the processes are unkillable.
whoever
xangua: 64bit os is backward compatable
judgen: whathappens when you try to kill it ? does your box freez?
skamikaze
hey there
where can i check the logged errors in linux?
Peng
Logged errors?
sweetleaf
whats the channel for thunderbird?
skamikaze
the message log of firefox
         

Peng
sweetleaf: Read the topic.
judgen
sorry it took a while, i had to eat.
Peng
Firefox has a message log?
Well...
judgen
the computer does not freeze, the app is just unkillable.
skamikaze
sry my english is maybe not perfect indeed i hoped the application logs crashes
Peng
skamikaze: The Crash Reporter application should have popped up when it crashed.
skamikaze
linux too?
Peng
skamikaze: There's an URL to show the crash information, about:crashreports or something.
skamikaze: Yess.
skamikaze
no it just vanishes :P
Peng
skamikaze: Only on official builds, though.
skamikaze: Ah.
skamikaze
3.5.7 official
Peng
(Action) shrugs
I've had crashes where Crash Reporter doesn't appear.
Sorry, I dunno anything else. Try irc.mozilla.org?
skamikaze
started it from terminal i got 2 glib warnings and this "info: 0, warning: 35, error: 121"
k ty
didn't know they got an irc server
Peng
It's mentioned in the topic. :P
Sigh, nobody likes my topics.
skamikaze
just read it half Peng :D
maybe resort it ^^
Peng
Hmm.
I also suck at writing. >.>

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, I can't seem to have more than 1 toolbar high on FF
When I go to Customize Toolbar I clearly see Stumbleupon and below it Bookmarks toolbar, however when I exit the Customization mode the bookmarks disapear
Anyone knows what's up with that?
whoever
skamikaze: try /var/log/
skamikaze
whoever: i look in any log there
indeed i get segmentation fault errors in terminal about x minutes later
whoever
skamikaze: try(i'm going of the top of my head right now)
skamikaze: what distro
         

skamikaze
ubuntu 9.10
look in user, syslog, messages, .. nothing there
whoever
skamikaze: how did you build it ?
skamikaze
installed from the repositories, didn't compile myself
purged and reinstalled it allready - same behavior
http://pastie.org/777166
whoever
skamikaze: start it -v and > error.log
then when it crashes look at that file
skamikaze
whoever here u are :) look at pastie
(didn't start it verbose yet, gonna give it a try)
whoever
skamikaze: what, post the link
skamikaze
http://pastie.org/777166
whoever
skamikaze: do you have aything to read pdf's with
Peng
skamikaze: Wait, you're using a distro build?
skamikaze
yes
Peng
skamikaze: Then no wonder you don't have Crash Reporter.
skamikaze
and yes, evince and adobes acobat
+r
Peng
Distro builds are not official builds.
skamikaze
oh
mhm makes sense
whoever
skamikaze: try xpdf
Peng
Actually, they *are* sort of rubber-stamped by Mozilla, but still.
skamikaze
mh does it auto update on start?
never tried a non distro firefox though
<- loves the comfort :)
whoever
Peng: i am using arch and i have never gotten the error skamikaze is getting
Peng
Okay?
whoever
Peng: it was just an fyi ..
Peng
OK, I'm getting tired and my eyes are glazing over.
skamikaze
whoever: ff 3.5.7?
whoever
skamikaze: are you rolling source
skamikaze
no
judgen
Yay it works!
whoever
skamikaze: sounds good
skamikaze
wanted to trace it now, after a restart it may work
:)
whoever
skamikaze: .. roll it and smoke it
skamikaze
would u mind to poke it?
whoever
skamikaze: what you mean
skamikaze
too much off topic for a support channel :)
whoever
skamikaze: are you asking to pm me?
skamikaze

whoever
skamikaze: so what are you asking of me ? ssh, pm, what ?

Andrew_U
anyone know of an add-on that splits the window in half to show 2 tabs?
(and can have different parameters on each)
dechang
embed firefox into my application, legal?
Andrew_U
embed gecko you mean
dechang
i guess yes.
gecko.
Andrew_U
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/embedding/
http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/
^^ very important
dechang
if i just import its dll files, without linking, recompile or etc. is it fine?
Andrew_U
as far as i can tell yes
dechang
ok. thanks.
Andrew_U
as long as you don't modify the source of Gecko you don't have to distribute gecko source
since netscape 'embeds mozilla' it seems more like LGPL
dechang
i had a hard time to fine gecko documentation.
Andrew_U
without linking, you mean like LoadLibrary() ?
(win32)
dechang
yeah, LoadLibrary.
or just import it in exe.
Andrew_U
hmm unfortunately i don't know, i assume taht's LIKE linking so i guess it's still the same
dechang
i guess i follow this rules (as long as you don't modify the source of Gecko you don't have to distribute gecko source) as u said
Andrew_U
yea
dechang
i just use it in its default way, no modification.
Andrew_U
i think there is credit due though
dechang
it seems embed webkit is easier than gecko.
i haven't tried anything, just survey
Andrew_U
http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/MPL-1.1-annotated.html# section 3.6
webkit is built into Qt
why not use that :P
i love it
now they've got webkit gtk module too
windows has the lovely IE
dechang
either i go with gtk+ webkit or this gecko thing
Andrew_U
yea
i'm not sure how stable gtk+ webkit is yet
it's fairly recent
at least in chrome it's stable as can be
dechang
i hope i could finish my project before end of this month.
embed it means to provide more profesional image.. into my app...
if failed, i just install firefox and ask them to use it
btw, i wonder why firefox doesn't implement the right click shows open tabs and scroller to move up and down (like in opera)
(Action) from opera but using ff portable now
ryoma
how do i edit my saved tab mix plus session before loading it? is it in the bookmark manager someplace? there are too many tabs to load.
cardona507
hello - what is the bespin chatroom? I am wondering how I save my code from bespin to my server?
akgerber
firefox claims to be running but killall firefox does not kill anything
how i make work.
(other than peeing on sully)
i guess i can start/end session
SuspectZero
hey there quick question
im running firefox on gentoo and im trying to get rid of the file/edit/view/etc... menus on the top
how would i be able to do that?
nvm got it by adding an extension
ryoma
installing the "it's all text" extension says that the author not verified. what does that mean?
zmjjmz
nothing really
ryoma
so if it's from mozilla then somebody vetted it for trojans?
CruNcher
What happened to the 3.7 nightly ?
compared to yesterdays and days before it feels like a new performance level on win32
everything is so smooth now
even big heavy gfx sites scrool smooth as silk and even with flash content running on top
it's like a new browser
i have 175 tabs opened and never ever was the experience so good :)
i mean this serious from 1 nightlie to the other the experience changed 180°
Accesshater1
dunno if there is a changelog or something like that
or ask it on irc.mozilla.org
t3rk3l
175 tabs wtf oO
isolat3dsh33p

dystopianray

or does it use the Temp folder?
Cork
SeriousMoh: what temp files are you trfering to?
*refering
SeriousMoh
youtube-like video
Cork
they are stored in the cache folder
SeriousMoh

Cork
its in the Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

SeriousMoh

Cork
its not stored as .flv or something though
SeriousMoh
the vid is definitely more than 100 mb in size, but cache is only 30
Cork
