ari-_-e: Which version is that?
ari-_-e
Peng: never mind, I fixed it
my nss wasn't new enough
Peng
Oh, huh.
^elf^
how do i set the profiles storage directory to an alternative location on my drive?
eg i dont want it in the documents & settigns\application data\firefox directory
Cork[home]
Peng: fwiw it got solved in the mozilla network => http://adblockplus.org/blog/more-extension-signing-adventures
^elf^: you can put the profile where ever you like actually, you just have to refer to it when you start firefox and it will use it happily
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Command_Line_Options
the -profile argument
^elf^
oh
is there a way to move (and automatically use) an existing profile?
Cork[home]
not really move
but sure you can copy/move it out of the normal location
as long as you refer to it in the -profile argument it should work just fine
else you would have to use the profiles.ini
and firefox will look for it in the document & settings folder
Peng
Even if you use profiles.ini, you can put the profile itself elsewhere. Probably.
Cork[home]
noway around that as far as i know, except compiling your own copy of firefox

hi! i found that an extention (flagfox) leaks dns. the FAQ says: "Remote DNS is enabled, but Flagfox is still doing lookups. \n You must be using only a SOCKS proxy, and no HTTP proxy, for Firefox to correctly tell everything to not do local DNS lookups. (this is not my problem; I follow Firefox's settings via the ProxyInfo object it gives me)"
is that true?

I can't see why Firefox is closing itself after opening. Did a new update do this

I'm having some odd problems with flash on firefox, same flashplugin used under seamonkey it works Ok.. Where would I go to report this issue, or see if someone else has this same issue?
kbrosnan
what version of seamonkey?
Dracofodder
whatever was loaded in ubuntu... checking.
seamonkey-browser 1.1.17+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
Athen
is there a way to back up bookmark files from a different computer ? [I'm on Ubuntu, btw]
kbrosnan
Athen: bookmarks > organize bookmarks > in the new window there will be an import export button
Dracofodder: would be good to test against seamonkey 2 as seamonkey 1.1.x is based on firefox 2
Dracofodder
kbrosnan: that would be fine, but the base issue is this... flashplugin-installer 10.0.42.34ubuntu0.9.10. on ubuntu 9.10 using firefox 3.5.7 (firefox 3.5.7+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.10.1) I get some menus that are cutoff while in flash applications... (games) But, just using synaptci to install seamonky 1.1.17 fomr the repo, and that same exact flash game works fine.
kbrosnan: I don't really care to get seamonkey working, I'd like to get FF working.
kbrosnan: was looking for a place to report, or search for similar issues, like a bugzilla page or some such.. have not found it yet

quick question, i have my favorite icons beside my address bar, but everytime i restart my firefox the favs get put into a menu that i can access by clicking the >>, is it possible to disable that?
Peng
Note: Perhaps someone should mention the +R bit in the topic. I was recently PMed by one user it bit.
(Yes, that someone could be me, but I'm a terrible writer.)

hi! if firefox won't save my session even if i checked the "Remember me" in most sites, does it mean that it has a problem with my .mozilla folder? :-/
latenite
hello
how do i activate cookies globaly? in ff 3.5.7 on linux? thx
I can not find this PRIVATY TAB everyone is trying to point me to...sorry
Cork
globaly, over profiles, or over sites in one profile?
latenite
globaly
         

Cork
... ya, you said that, but globaly what?
profile globaly or site globaly?
latenite
actiually i would be happy to find the tab where to make the choices?..it does not seem to be HERE
well i have phpmyadmin telling me to activate cookie (thats the issue)
Cork
ok
if you check under edit > preferences
you should have a privacy tab there
if not check if you have custom theme installed
latenite
bit i DONT: http://www.poeritz.de/cookie_please.png
its on german.....still...no privaciy tab
Cork
you got that dialog?
or rather that tab?
latenite
check my dialogshot
http://www.poeritz.de/cookie_please.png
Cork
ya, i meant is that what you see?
or what your looking for?
latenite
yes...it is exactly what i see!
Cork
ok that IS your provacy tab
anlegen hmm
(Action) translates
latenite
no i just took a picture of what i see........but i DONT see a privacy thing there
...create.....
Cork
that is how the tab looks like in firefox 3.5
s/how/what/
latenite
s/how/what/
....what dows that mean? ... s/how/what/
Cork
just me correcting my spelling :D
latenite
ohh ok ;)
Cork
anlegen would you translate that to "remeber" or something like that?
latenite
no not quite: it mean to "create"
is there a way to start ff in englich...
Cork
strange translation...
latenite
i am on a genttobox
Cork
only if you install a language pack
latenite
s/genttobox/gentoobox
Cork
anyway i still think that is the same meaning as "Remember history" in english
so you have the default setting
Peng
You can install other language packs from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:3 if you want to.
latenite
hold on i lll do that real quick...so u can read better
Cork
latenite: if you change it to the custom setting you will see the settings ppl have been talking with you about
latenite
ppl?
Cork
but anyway, i don't think the cookie problem comes from firefox it self maybe from an extension or you firewall or something
peaple
latenite
the link of urs has to files in US-english?...which one?
Cork
uh, thats spelling dictionaris
latenite
installed the plugin...how do i activate a new language?
not the right one?
Cork
no
latenite
no problem
Cork
hmm en-GB not en-US :s
latenite
cant find the propper plugin rightaway.....
help
Cork
latenite: anyway, try starting firefox in safe mode; i don't think the problem is in firefox settings
Peng
If you'd rather talk in German, there's a #firefox.de channel on irc.mozilla.org.
latenite
realy?..no...sound weird...but i like it in english
is that ok 4 you?
Cork
Peng: this is the best i can find ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/3.5.7/win32/xpi/en-GB.xpi
do you know where the en-US can be found?
Peng
Nope.
Cork
looks like en-US can only be installed through a new install >_>
latenite
me...no clue...realy ;)
got it installed...still german...how do i chaneg?
i seem to have a reaf f***up vesion (under tha last tab SHOULD be a language *thingy*) which is not there
Cork
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1333
latenite
GOT IT :)
deactivated the german one...now it is on eng
Cork
ah
so the german is listed as an addon then?
or where?
latenite
when i klick "tools>adons" i get a tab that says "languages"
Cork
oh
latenite
in there i can deactivate an so on
Cork
(Action) taks a mental note on that
latenite
ok here goes the eng screenshot (stiill looking for PRIVACY tab):..
Cork
the same tab you looked at before should be the correct tab
latenite
http://www.poeritz.de/cookies_please.png
it realy IS that one
Cork
yup
ya
latenite
laugh.....what a translation(totaly off)
Cork
ya
XD
i was really confused whan you talked about create XD
latenite
anyway...how to i activate theses cookies now?
Cork
as its in the "Remember" mode it should work
so i would say its caused by comething else
so start with trying in firefox safe mode
latenite
safemode??
Cork
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode
when it starts just click "Continue in Safe Mode"
latenite
is asks me to CHECK things like: disable all addons...
leave em blank?
Cork
ya
if you check them, they change for you normal boot
but starting in safe mode is enough right now
latenite
id did.....
Cork
and if you go to the phpmyadmin page, does it work now?
latenite
phpmyadmin still does not let me login an "says: activate cookies"
Cork
ok, do you have a software firewall installed in your system?
latenite
i guess it s not ff that's bugging me?! right?
Cork
nope
ow wait linux...
(Action) hits his head
forgot that XD
but ya its something else
latenite
the ppl over at #phpmyadmin......dont say a word...
Cork
donno what it could be in linux though
it the access page to phpmyadmin public?
latenite
no iptabels active..or so
Cork
no iptables shouldn't affect this
latenite
yes its public
Cork
i can try the start page and see if i get the same message if you like
latenite
altough i run ALL that stuff localy (localhost)
it s not on the net
Cork
lol
latenite
;)
Cork
then its not public :D
latenite
i guess so....laughs
i like this irc thing....realy.....i new to it..but ppl in here ARE THE BEST
Cork

latenite
