hello, does anyone know why gmail would fail to load? switching to ie, using IE tab works. I have removed google/gmail from my history. when i try to access the website i only get a blank screen indicating an ongoing effort to contact the website , and not even a timeout.
tag
oh.
andy_t_roo
switching to ie tab, loading gmail, then switching back fixes the problem
tag
Can I not set a cookie and direct at once? Maybe this is the problem.
http://pastebin.mozilla.org/697175
I don't get it....why's the cookie still there? :-(

Hi folks, I wanted to have a look at the cookie database and opened it with the SQLite Manager addon. The table moz_cookies is empty while it is supposed to have 1 entry. What is going wrong? Any ideas?
using 3.5.7
kbrosnan
is it a session cookie, those get stored in ram
srm
damn
kbrosnan: any quick shot on how to examine it's content? Looks like firefox scramble the content (by looking via settings). I working on a webshop an wanted to see if the login data is stored in plain text.
nah, never mind. I got this totally wrong. The cookie holds only the autogenerated-server-scrambled session ID while the information is stored server-side. Thanks for the insight :)

Hi. I'm looking to add search engines manually, but it seems Firefox provides no menu or easy way to do it.
I found an add-on, though IMHO this shouldn't need an addon.
M06w
or, anybody interested in trying to make one?
I'd do it myself but I'm far too busy not doing it

I created a Gtk2Hs application, but it's ugly because I pass around all widgets from main. Any idea how to do this cleanly?
Would it be wise to pass the xml object around instead? (I used glade to create the UI)
Or would getting the objects from xml every time (say on events) be a performance issue?
Sorry, wrong channel :(.
fedorauser162
how can i in a console give me the total number of directories in that directory?
srm
fedorauser162: if you are on linux ask in #linux, if you are on windows ask in #windows if you are on osx ask in #osx ... I guess you get the gist.

Hi everybody
I look for a manual about the options of setup.exe on windows
setup.exe options like -ms -ira /S (which doesn't work) etc...
Is this the only source ? http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t73662.html
And why the -h options didn't give the text?
Thanks for all the answers it 's a pleasure to be here
Accesshater
jad_jay maybe because it is for firefox 1.5 ?
pk_
any "firebug" IRC?
         

Accesshater
maybe on irc.mozilla.org @ pk_
check the firebug homepage
jad_jay
Accesshater: ok it's for firefox 1.5 but i need documentation, and where could i find it
Accesshater: is that all ?????? https://wiki.mozilla.org/Installer:Command_Line_Arguments

What was the about:config option to disable the auto-restore window insanity?
Euler
hi all...anyone know of a way / addon that will allow me to select some text on a rendered webpage and tell me what local font firefox/gecko is using to render that text?
Accesshater
Euler do you mean something like firebug?
Euler
i can see what the CSS rule is viz firebug
but that's not necessarily what gecko is using
Accesshater
isnt it so that if the font isnt defined in the css firefox will use the default font?
Euler
the default font for firefox for me is just "serif" which isn't very helpful

I've just started a new user profile in Ubuntu and I copied my .mozilla dir across. I'm using font smoothing and it works on everything except Firefox. All the fonts (including the interface menus, etc) are slightly chubby/blurred. I've tried moving .mozilla so I start a new profile but the blurriness continues. Any ideas?
Fixed it!
Turns out it was all fontconfig's fault

I am using a dark gnome theme what's the best way to get arund hard to use forms in ff3 with that?

Hi!
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=539952
Can something be done about this?
jesperj
is there some online service that one can parse a website url with, so that it formats the webpage given into a better layout for printing? As for example in a page that has a menubar on the left that steals lots of pagespace that is then not used for text when printed?
sanguisdex
kbrosnan: I am doing that but it does not seem to work
jesperj: you could use firebug to set the offending elements to display:none
kbrosnan: is there a way to test to see if the userContent.css is being ignored?
jesperj
sanguisdex: thank you

I have Firefox 3.5.7, it shows connection partially encrypted for my website, at the time i didn't get this in IE 8 and aslo contacted ssl certificate issuer and they said nothing is wrong with certificate, may you tell me why i'm getting this or even how to know which part of this page that isn't encrypted and cause this warning ??
Umeaboy
f00bar80: Have you checked the page for errors?
kbrosnan
sanguisdex: they are not present by defualt
f00bar80: likely there is a script or other resource that is served from http and not https
sanguisdex
kbrosnan: I know I made one
kbrosnan
they are only loaded on restart, and they need the namespace
sanguisdex
its just not being taking into account
f00bar80
kbrosnan, any comment ?
Peng
f00bar80: He already commented.
f00bar80: BTW, Adblock Plus's list of blockable items is a convenient way to see if there are any http things on the page.
I'm sure there are other ways too, but I already have ABP installed, so... :P
kbrosnan
no the cert chain is bad
Peng
Who what? /me goes AFK again.
f00bar80
kbrosnan, so in this case what i have to do ?
kbrosnan
contact the support for the company that provided the cert
f00bar80
kbrosnan, i did and they said something on the page has http
kbrosnan
give them the output of openssl that i gave you
f00bar80
kbrosnan, how did you get this ?
kbrosnan
it is a standard program on any linux system
it = openssl
ViRUS
Can anyone tell me what it means when some resources in the "Page Info" Media-Tab are grayed out?
f00bar80
kbrosnan, how did you use openssl to test the certificate ?
martin-
around, or for support with other Mozilla software, go to irc.mozilla.org or http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Basic+Troubleshooting
copy/paste fail, sorry
is there a list of the bugs currently blocking 3.6?
f00bar80
kbrosnan, ... ??>
kbrosnan
f00bar80: the command is the first line of what i pastebined you
f00bar80
kbrosnan, how to be sure that this is the correct port ?

kbrosnan
Yuri_Harrison: #thunderbird is on irc.mozilla.org - the basics is to find your profile and make a copy
Gunni^
i have an idea for an addon, addressbar that takes address AND ip, so the browser connects to the ip and says it want's that site. i could use it a lot and i belive developers and people behind dns blocades could aswell
instead of needing to edit hosts file which as an admin action anyways
f00bar80
kbrosnan, support say certificate padlock shows and looks good
kbrosnan, any comment ?
Patero-ng
hello
I am member 100
I have a question
I want to know why firefox on linux takes some time to load when client but with root access loads inmediately
this wasn't the case until yesterday when I renamed firefox to fire
but then went back to firefox somehow permisions or something changed that now the sand clock takes 4 times longer to disspaear
xangua
Patero-ng: you mean you launched firefox with 'sudo' ¿¿
Patero-ng
yes
xangua
that'n one of the things yo uare supposed not to do
Patero-ng
what are the risks
xangua
like you said, messing up permisions
Patero-ng
it does?
I changed shortcut and set to run as user root
it ask my pasword and loaded I didn't use the terminal tou
but that wasn't the question actually it was that loading as user takes longer then it use to
epcept when loading as root
xangua
yes, sudo is not supposed to be used with graphic aplications
Patero-ng
why not
xangua
because it messes up the permisions :S
Patero-ng
automaticaly?
how does it
naxa
if I change the .attribute-value color to green !important, to overlay viewsource.css, the href tags' values still keep their blue (and underlined) color. how can I change this?
Pathero-ng
please tell me
running sudo or root is only meant to specific ?
andy
I want answers people
I get firefox loading slowly after changing firefox to fire
xangua
Pathero-ng: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE) - via #ubuntu
Pathero-ng
superuser
meaning administraotr?
as when I login in xp as admin
naxa
oh. it's simply a:link
it's just not defined in viewsource
it's in editoroverride
be
bye

Hey guys, feature suggestion - if not already available (if so tell me how!) .. It would be great to be able to "set" a go back location when web browsing. I.E. when viewing numerous pages of images, set a "go back location" on page 1, so when you're 20 pages deep, you can hit a shortcut key or button, and it goes back in your history to the goback location instantly.. instead of clicking the down arrow next to back, and going down 10, down 10, down 10

jastor_
is there a plugin that binds a key to a function that forces firefox to stop loading a page? several pages lately esc doesnt do sh*t so you have to press the X ... but not only stop loading a page .. abort ajax requests, javascript etc.
fakeer
gavin: but earlier it at least used to show the update check option as active while it was updated by ubuntu repo and not ubuntuzilla
jastor_
and theres a a very annoying buy in whatever function firefox uses to query sqlite .. it doesnt escape characters like " .. so trying to search for +" in history displays results with + or " .. or both but not specifically together
s/buy/bug/
ive tried escaping myself .. didnt work ;)
