Anyone heard of rendering problems on https://eu.battle.net/account/management/?
it's probably hard to reproduce since I only get them when I am logged in
the symptoms is that the page is rendered as blank page.
safari works nice
but the site source in safari looks very different

Is there a way to recover your bookmarks if they were not properly exported to a .json file (or whatever), even though you still have access to the old ~/.mozilla folder that was used?

i thought bookmarks.html was a standard html document

what possible reasons might there be for firefox running slowly all of a sudden? no new plugins

hi, all! i've got a problem with Firefox. i'm using OpenSuse 11.2 upgraded with DVD from 11.1. Since a few days ago, Firefox in my main account does not work properly: the only pages it loads correctly are from Mozilla.org, and even if i try to a search on the google field or type in a domain on the URL field, all I get is a page from mozilla.org saying it can't find the requested page. I've already deleted the whole .mozilla
directory from my home directory, and at re-start the problem persists. On the other hand, on my second user profile in the same system, there is no problem with Firefox. any ideas??

where's the config file of Firefox?
on a Linux system
because it's difficult to set DPI to 80 while it's set to 7580
okay, got it
thanks

I just downloaded 3.5.6 for Linux
I am unsure how to install this --- Is someone able to help me?
I have extracted it from the archive
I am not sure what the next step is
kbrosnan
extract to folder of your choice, run firefox
RonWhoCares
So I just type "RUN FIREFOX"
kbrosnan
no
either supply the full path to the firefox file you extracted or double click on the file and select run

Firefox keeps complaining that it can't resolve an address.
I can resolve it via the command line with 'host' and 'dig'.
I can even telnet to port 80 on it and GET /
but even after restart, firefox is complaining that it can't find the host.
It's an ipv6 address. And I don't have ipv6 address resolution disabled.
any thoughts?
well, WTF. It just started working. After like 15 minutes of poking it. I did nothing differently.
*sigh*
nevermind!

hello
kbrosnan
hi
Lubomir
when i get the plain profile-files(directory) of someone, how can i export all the bookmarks?
in the profile i found bookmarks.html
kbrosnan
that is not used anymore
Lubomir
but there are no bookmakrs-directory's
kbrosnan
bookmarksbackup folder and the .json files might be your best bet
Lubomir
i dont know what version of firefox is been used
so i take them, copy them all to the bookmarksbackup folder of his new pc-firefox-profil and everything is fine again?
kbrosnan
no
         

Lubomir
and what should i do with those .json files?
kbrosnan
you would need to reimport
using the ui
Lubomir
ah
kbrosnan
or see http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile
Lubomir
ah, okay, i found it in the ui
thanks verry much
kbrosnan , everything succesfully done with teamviewer. thanks again :)
bye @ all

Is there a known problem displaying https://eu.battle.net/account/management/index.xml?
kbrosnan
cbreak: i don't have any issues using the US version
cbreak
when I look at the source code, I see xml, not html. When I look at the page, I see only white.
kbrosnan
maybe the css files are missing, ctrl + shift + r
does that help any?
cbreak
force reloading does not seem to influence anything. (Still white)
kbrosnan
checked firefox's safe mode?
cbreak
When I look at the page in safari, it looks fine. And strangely, when I look at the page again in firefox after looking at it in safari, it also looks fine. Sometimes.
safe mode?
no, haven't tried that
kbrosnan
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode
cbreak
safe mode doesn't seem to work at all here. Maybe some weirdness in the OS X app bundle
ah, yes
unusual app path
but it seems to display the page
maybe an issue with NoScript. Hmm.
kbrosnan
likely
cbreak
I white listed everything the page needed, but it still didn't work
now I disabled NS completely, trying again
hmm. No, it wasn't NS
seems it was the Vimperator addon
ah well. Weird.
maybe because of parsing problems with the xml for it's hint based browsing
couldn't find a way to disable it selectively for that domain
but thanks for the safemode tip, now I at least know where the problem is :)

Hey, I can't seem to install xpi files by drag/drop anymore in Windows 7. Any ideas?
Did some security setting or something change in the newest firefox? This just started after I downloaded/installed the latest version.
Nevermind. Damn anti-virus. ;)

How do i import .pst files from outlook into thunderbird?

hi
i want to have to installations of firefox on one pc, and run them both at the same time
i tried firefox portable but i can't run it while firefox runs
kbrosnan
Diverdude don't think thunderbird can handle pst files directly, though #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org would know better than i

what does -no-remote do?
kbrosnan
bubbles|: allow for a second instance to start
bubbles|
it doesn't work... do i really have to do the part with the profiles?
funny, it works if i start portable first :x
kbrosnan
bubbles|: yes, profiles need to be unique
bubbles|
but the portable keeps its profile in its directory
kbrosnan
you would need to ask the portable apps people about their product
i have no knowledge of how they do what they do
Aevum
anyone from the actual mozilla development team ?
its just to make a small suggestion
mavhc
they're probably on irc.mozilla.org
