Patero-ng
nob
auscompgeek,
I want to know 1 thing
why is my firefox loading slower as user then as root
auscompgeek
What is that?
O_O
Patero-ng
..
auscompgeek
You could try a new profile.
Patero-ng
...
negative it didn't work
auscompgeek
That's weird&
Patero-ng
come on tell me m8
auscompgeek
I have no idea&
         

Peng
caution: The topic?
Oh, wait, 3.6 is out.
caution
peng that only links to 3.6
I upgraded and it has a bug with adblock
Peng
caution: It has a little link to 3.5.7, http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all-older.html
caution
need to downgrade
Peng
With Adblock Plus? I'm sure it'll be fixed soon, if it hasn't been already.
caution
thanks
adblock author says it's a problem with firefox and won't fix
Peng
Adblock Plus?
caution
yes
Peng
Yeah, he runs into a lot of those. :D
caution
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=533247
think anyone will ever bother to correct that?
DASPRiD
caution, is that so much of a problem?
caution
yes, defeats one major purpose of adblock and wastes bandwidth
DASPRiD
wastes bandwidth: true
tho we are talking about kilobytes
caution
why only kilobytes?
DASPRiD
i don't think an advert will be 1 megabyte in size
auscompgeek
ABP wfm on Minefield
caution
are you a firefox developer DASPRiD?
you seem very shortsighted
auscompgeek
He doesn't seem to be a Fx dev&
You seem to be short sighted&
DASPRiD
developer, yes, extension developer, yes, ff developer, surely not
ed-209
why is firefox trying to download this .jpg?
:p
         

Peng
What?
DASPRiD
:p <-- which jpeg is this?
Peng
http://:p/ of course!
ed-209
alrighty...
DASPRiD
: is a reserved character in URIs
so no way :P
ed-209

cause on my winders vista, 3.5.7FF, that tries to download... I get a save/open with... dialog box
DASPRiD
displays fine here
ed-209
meh
is my mime db screwed up?
auscompgeek
who knows?
I wouldn't count on it however.
ed-209
do you have a 'JPEG Image' entry in your Options/Applications list?
Peng
DASPRiD: It does?!
I get the save prompt too.
I assume Firefox is misinterpreting its Content-Disposition: inline header.
caution
displays for me
auscompgeek
wait, I'll test in Minefield
wfm
caution
is it safe to install 3.5.7 over the top of 3.6?
auscompgeek
It should be.
But you can uninstall Fx 3.5.7 first.
caution
3.6
auscompgeek
oh&
caution
yeah it appears to have worked
auscompgeek
For all I know, 3.6 might have changed the profile&

Digicrime
can somebody help me?
auscompgeek
hm?
xangua
no, just read you Digicrime
Digicrime
my back, forward, stop, reload buttons won't work!
and my url won't display unless i click the page icon and then it says something about my security problem!
can somebody help me?
auscompgeek
O_o
Digicrime
this is kind of urgent
auscompgeek
Digicrime, you are using the default theme?
Digicrime
no
foxkeh
its never given me this problem before
ill try changing the theme im in a rush kinda
auscompgeek
You are using a Persona?
Digicrime
that didn't change anything
>i don't know what the problem is
i think its an addon
auscompgeek
which one?
Digicrime
does anyone have any ideas?
i have no idea
i have250 add ons
i think its a security problem
because my url by default now is search bookmarks and history
and it shows a blank page for my home page even though i have a home page set
and to get the url back i have to click on the white paper symobl to the left of the url bar then it says the web site does not supply securtiy information for any page i do this for (i think)
any ideas?
any ideas before i leave? where can i report this problem to the public on a mozzila webiste?
rjohnson19
Did you try Safe Mode?
Digicrime
no
just did
doens't work in safe mode, either
but when i start up firefox it says in a error window [Javascript Application]:
error reading link-handlers.js: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIFileInputStream.init]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://launcher/content/overlay.js :: anonymous :: line 193" data: no]
rjohnson19
Your hitting the wrong button to get to your home page, btw.
There should be a little house icon, thats what you want.
auscompgeek
Try a clean install.
(maybe)
Digicrime
clean install?
what's that?
rjohnson19
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Live+Chat+troubleshooting+guide#Clean_installation
Digicrime
rjohnson19: im not hitting that button to get to my home page
rjohnson19
Oh, I misread, apologies.
auscompgeek
Tools > Options > General
check the home page settings there as well.
Digicrime
home page is wikipedia
rjohnson19
The URL of the page he is at is just not displaying in the location bar. Which is odd.
auscompgeek
does it say When Firefox starts: Open my home page?
Digicrime
no
auscompgeek
then set it as that.
Digicrime
the url bar says: search bookmarks and history
auscompgeek
s/Open/Show/
in Tools > Options > General
Digicrime
there is no general
auscompgeek
?
Digicrime
oh, its main, not general
auscompgeek
I have General&
Digicrime
set to: show my home page
sorry
this is version 3.5.7
auscompgeek
then update
Digicrime
i really think its a security error thing because i know wikipedia is secure
auscompgeek
https://secure.wikimedia.org ?
someone's showing off their IPv6 address :D
Digicrime
yes its secure
auscompgeek
I see&
Peng
auscompgeek: Someone really cool would have rDNS, though. ;D
Digicrime
g2g
auscompgeek
lol
Digicrime
maybe ill try clean install
thanks for the help
bye
ill use CLEO first
Peng
Aww, it's just a tunnel, not native.
auscompgeek
aww&

hey guys - I'm trying to get Firefox to accept my MPEG4 video, but it doesn't seem to want to. Chrome does it fine.
http://simula.gunkies.org/smthd/video-lq.html <- Can anyone spot the problem, am I doing something obviously wrong?
Ah. H.264 is out for legal reasons. D'oh.
error404notfound
by default ffx3.6 opens all new tab links in relative e.g. right to current tab, but what about new blank tab? e.g. CTRL+T? it opens at the end e.g. right most of the tab bar, why? how can i change to to open relative as well?

I'm having trouble upgrading firefox on ubuntu
I run the browser as root and it won't display the "check for updates" option
I guess no one here is a linux user.....
brlancer
LinuX2half: Did you download and install your current version of Firefox or are you using the version that came with Ubuntu?
LinuX2half
I'm using firefox that came with ubuntu
My current version is 3.5.7 but I can't seem to upgrade it to 3.6
brlancer
then you would need to upgrade it using Ubuntu's system upgrade utility
I doubt Ubuntu has 3.6 packaged, so you will need to download the tarball from Mozilla and uncompress it somewhere
LinuX2half
Oh okay, so I need to download the source manually. But when will ubuntu complete packaging firefox 3.6?
It goes that they're configuring the version to be compatible with ubuntu
I guess I'll ask the ubuntu community
Well see ya and good night

battro
is it just me or does firefox 3.6 break websites which 3.5.7 had no problem with?
kbrosnan
battro: example?
pk_
i want to send a trusted keypress event to a webpage by howsoever method......please help......how do i give necessary permissions to my script?
kbrosnan
need more context
Bacta
Here's an idea: Make H.264 a plugin that is optional
That way you leave the risk to the users
[reed]
Bacta: no
Bacta: http://shaver.off.net/diary/2010/01/23/html5-video-and-codecs/
also
http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/roc/archives/2010/01/video_freedom_a.html
Bacta
heh ball is in their court
if they want to see a drift back towards proprietry browsers it's their call
[reed]
they == who?
Bacta
Mozilla Corp

roc correctly mentions ActiveX in one of his recent posts
http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/roc/archives/2010/01/activex_all_ove.html
it really is the ActiveX issue all over again, and we won on that
so, I wouldn't give up on us yet ;)

Is there any was i can prevent dotted outlines on selected items ? (using CSS, JS, ...)
binay
why is my firefox downloading a 10mb 3.5.7 update when 3.6 is out?
gavin
we don't have snippets for 3.6 for every possible version
just for 3.5.7->3.6
if you're on an old version, you need to update to 3.5.7 first
binay
i was on 3.5.5
..
:/
it does not support my current addons
multi proxy switch *
PlasmaHH
hi, I just started a 3.6 without any extensions or plugins and tried to right click on an image and do "view image" or "copy image location" but neither works... can anyone hint me on how to debug that?
gavin
PlasmaHH: what platform?
PlasmaHH
gavin: linux
gavin
kde?
that wouldn't affect View Image, I suppose
have you tried a new profile?
PlasmaHH
yes, I ran a new profile completely without extensions and/or plugins
