hello i have a 3.5 profile that i want to revert to 3.0 as far as i can tell there is no way to get the sqlite back to .txt ?
patrlck
is there any way to move the tabs in firefox (linux) ?
znx
patrlck: just click on the tab and drag
if you drag off the tab it will make a new window too
patrlck
it doesn't seem to work on the linux version
znx
im using linux right now .. and it work
paul424
hey why does this video in hd seems to be buzzing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fohXBj2UEI, while the normal non-hd sounds ok ?
patrlck
hmm.. weird
znx, do you think there is a hidden option to set 'move tabs' to yes
?
znx
nope
default install .. and it works
harth
patrick: which version of firefox?
         

patrlck
it's a fresh install
3.5.7
znx
patrlck: there is a keyboard method too .. er
two seconds
patrlck
I use kb keyes to switch between tabs but I'm used to drag them
znx
patrlck: maybe the wm has taken control in some way?
im using Gnome
patrlck
me too gnome
znx
hrmm .. not sure then
patrlck
I guess I COULD reinstall it
but I'll have to reinstall add-ons, re-enter passwords, etc. ;/
znx
patrlck: i dont think a reinstall would be needed
patrlck: default theme?
patrlck
yup default theme
znx
hrmm
patrlck: did you add any addons .. just to ensure one of them isnt messing with ff in someway
*way
patrlck
yeah I have installed the same ones I was using on firefox windows
znx
patrlck: maybe try disabling them .. restarting ff and seeing if it makes a difference, i doubt it but just maybe
patrlck
isn't there a way to run firefox in 'debug mode'
without add-ons and such
MHz128
Where can I find a recent article/guide to those basic pipelinning speed-up-firefox tweaks?
znx
patrlck: firefox -safe-mode from cli
MHz128: about:config search for pipe

patrlck
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1310084
looks like I'm not the only one with this problem
znx
patrlck: and there is a possible solution there
patrlck
runs the same in safe mode
         

znx
"To fix this problem permanently, close Firefox, delete the file localstore.rdf in your profile and start Firefox again." .. but it will reset toolbars and icons
patrlck
hmm
fixed
all I did was run firefox in safe mode
apparently it clears that same file
znx
ah good
patrlck
thx :)

Is it possible to prevent a javascript popup from stopping you from closing a page?
I sometimes get nervous when I go to navigate away from a page and all i get is a jscript dialogbox with "OK" And "Cancel". What is to keep them from using the "Cancel" button to do something other than that.
znx
doc-saintly: use noscript?
patrlck
doc-saintly, you could use a script blocker
doh, too slow
noscript is what I use too and it's working great
doc-saintly
well i do want certain things
patrlck
you can allow them manually
doc-saintly
i'm just wondering if anyone knows if that sort of function distinction is available in the API
patrlck: yes but for some pages it's too late when you have to hit accept and reload the page
anywho, thanks for the advice
kbrosnan
eh firefox won't close windows with more than one tab open via javascript
MapMan
I KNEW UPDATING FIREFOX IS A BAD FUCKING IDEA
hiptobecubic
:D
MapMan
this thing is driving me batsh*t insane
but no
the window kept popping
asking if I want to update
i tried to resist
but I lost the will to fight it after 100th time
so I submitted
and updated...
god damn it
ok, seriously now. I updated firefox to 3.6; After I launch firefox everything works well for about 10 seconds then it ceases to work, I cant open sites, mess in options, nothing
laeg
none of the search engines in my search drop down menu have icons
they have an icon after i click them, but only left of the search bar
how can i remedy this?
jschall
how can i get firefox's file download application associations to be correct? for example, right now, the default to open a tar file is /bin/tar, when it should be /usr/bin/ark
i can add /usr/bin/ark as an option, but /bin/tar can't be removed as an option and remains the default no matter what i do
i'm using kubuntu 9.10 with firefox 3.5.7
xangua
mmm have you tried asking in #kubuntu jschall ¿
MapMan
I removed my profiles and now firefox wont start at all
god damn it
never update again
never
jschall
xangua: yes
kbrosnan
jschall: Firefox consults gnome vfs and mailcap for file association
MapMan
I managed to fix my firefox
laeg
none of the search engines in my search drop down menu have icons
MapMan
uninstall.exe
laeg
they have an icon after i click them, but only left of the search bar
how can i remedy this?
MapMan
works like a charm!
kbrosnan
laeg: try removing search.json and search.sqlite from your profile folder with Firefox closedd
RenatoSilva
please read https://bugs.launchpad.net/moin-solenoid/+bug/510010
why doesn't it work with FF? <link rel="Alternate" media="print" title="Visualizar Impressão" href="/MoinMoinBugs/MinusSignAsSearchTerm?action=print">
kbrosnan
have an example wiki page?
RenatoSilva
"Alternate" is correct (CI): http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/links.html#adef-rel
kbrosnan: http://launchpad.net/moin-solenoid/trunk/2009.12.5/+download/Solenoid%20Theme%202009.12.5%20with%20Moin%201.8.5.tar.gz
kbrosnan: extract, run wikiserver.py
kbrosnan
any chance of a web accessable that is already up an running/
RenatoSilva
the overhead is just download time
no chance unfortunately :(
unless you use firebug and a hack
http://moinmo.in
f12, remove <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" media="print" href="/moin_static191/modernized/css/print.css">
then print view, I believe we'll get the same effect (you should see the header and footer in print view)
kbrosnan
RenatoSilva: http://i.imgur.com/KWCpD.png is what i get on a clean profile
RenatoSilva
kbrosnan: now select More Actions > Print View
you'll see only the page content, then you can do a print view in FF and it will look fine
in your example, it should behave like accessing the action=print in the menu, according to the <link> mentioned
kbrosnan
RenatoSilva
too big bugs to read now but, God, first is unimplemented since 2001!
kbrosnan: thanks anyway, you really helped

"Please ask your administrator to remove the xpti.dat from the components directory of the Mozilla browser."
where is this?
rjohnson19
laeg: Profile folder: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox, not in a components directory (anymore)
Oh, it might be in your install directory under components as well.
laeg
rjohnson19: got it ty

Hi, i had tor installed, removed it for new version, and now the new torbutton will not install, says will be installed after restart but it don't happen

well whenever someone reads this and can help, msg me please
lockd
is there ANY way to enable h264 support for video tags in Firefox
kbrosnan
no, requires a licence fee that Mozilla is not willing to pay
lockd
kbrosnan: can't I just embed FFMPeg?
kbrosnan
no
lockd
really?
kbrosnan
really
lockd
there's a totem mozplugin
totem has a gstreamer backend, gstreamer has a ffmpeg backend
kbrosnan
<video> is not plugin based
lockd
yeah, I know
gavin
it possible to do anything you want, technically
there's a bug about a gstreamer backend for <video>, for example
lockd
gavin: yeah, exactly my point.. if i NEED to I can always have a proxy which rewrites the video tags
kbrosnan
but for more than a few reasons Mozilla does not want to go that path currently
lockd
how difficult would it be to convert <video> to being plugin based
kbrosnan
considerable knowledge of c/c++
lockd
isn't there a plugin out there which lets me rewrite web pages dynamically?
kbrosnan
a few extensions, greasemoneky for one
lockd
yeah.. then wouldn't it be trivial to just rewrite the tags?
kbrosnan
huh?
lockd
or is greasemonkey limited to only superficial changes
kbrosnan
i doubt anyone would write a video re-encoder or decoder totally in js
lockd
wait a second, I think you misunderstand
I probably didn't explain clear enough
not re-encoding. converting the <video> tag to an <object> tag
kbrosnan
i've seen that done before
lockd
i'd like to switch to another browser, but unfortunately the extensions are the best feature
aha, found it: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/55379
unfortunately it's kinda hard to determine the mime type (maybe even impossible)
by the way, what are the benefits to not having the video player running as a plugin?
kbrosnan
each plugin is an addtional point of failure
lockd
yeah, that's true
oh, just realized that Chromium has support for Ogg Theora (supposedly, haven't actually tried it)

My Firebug updated to 1.5 and 'Inspect Element' stopped working, I then removed a few extenstions (FireQuery, FireFinder, FireCookie) and now it is working... anyone know which addon is responsible?
