auscompgeek
is that a problem?
triple_x
i use yoono add on and have no problem
I thought yoono was going to eat up bandwidth I also use chatzilla??? so how much bandwidth do these programs eat up???
auscompgeek
CZ? not much
kbrosnan
very small assuming a broadband connection
CharlesR
not a problem, it is what i wanted. dunno how it happened though
kbrosnan
my guess would be a partally corrupted localstore.rdf file, though now that it sorted itself out there is no way to tell
triple_x
thank you kbrosnan I was getting different ideas on this irc chat line the other day ago.... I use broadband... Is there any add ons that eat up a lot of processing power for a 2.4 ghz dual core system
MarcoPau
hello, how can I remove the beep produced when there's no result from the search?
kbrosnan
MarcoPau: in about:config
accessibility.typeaheadfind.enablesound
MarcoPau
kbrosnan: thank you!
takahiro
hi is there a way to disable buffering in firefox?
auscompgeek
what buffering?
takahiro
when it loads a page, it buffers before it renders the text for X amount of characters or data
auscompgeek
that makes it faster...
takahiro
for example, i made a php script that does <?php echo "Hello"; sleep(1000); ?> and when i wget my site it will dump "hello" right away and wait for a long time... but on firefox, it will never show "hello" until the timeout is done
Peng
The only delays I know of are time-based, so it won't have to rerender the page again so quickly.
But I don't know much. >.>
auscompgeek
I don't think you can disable it...
takahiro
is there a way to tell firefox to render now? like maybe some special control characters in the document?
auscompgeek
er, no...
unless if &rendernow; exists :P
takahiro
how many characters does it usually buffer?
because i can send a bunch of spaces or something to fill it up
         

auscompgeek
actually, it isn't characters, it's time
takahiro
but with sleep(1000) it actually waited 1000 seconds before it showed "hello" - how much time does it need?
auscompgeek
seems the sleep stopped Firefox from rendering it

firefox 3.5.7 on winxp sp3: firefox freezes every 22 seconds for about half a second to a second and then resumes normal operation. ideas?
older versions had the same issues for me. i just uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled. still having the same problem
dolske
y7deluxe: how many tabs/windows do you have open?
y7deluxe
1 window, 1 tab
i disabled the addon: Movie Media Player 7
and it no longer hangs during youtube.com videos, but it still hangs if i'm scrolling or typing
dolske
I'd tend to guess an addon then... Have you tried running Firefox's safemode?
y7deluxe
i disabled all addons after the basic install and it still hanged
i haven't run in safemode, i wasn't aware it had one
i'll give that a shot.

hello
y7deluxe
thank you sir
xentriec
Firefox history manager is really poor, is there any addons for an improved one?
rainy96
my firefox 3 on windows xp is very slow can you help me improve it please?
xentriec
Search is very slow, it doesn't show you time stamps on history items, older items are grouped into a big monthly category, it doesn't let you sleect by domains (e.g. just youtube) because it relies on the page title only & when searching for 'youtube' it takes a logn time to filter the results. many sites have different names just because they were from http:// & not www.
rainy96: use opera perhaps, the 10.10 version is very good and quick
rainy96
xentriec that's not very firefox-helper-like but ok ;-)
xentriec
rainy96: reinstall
rainy96
:-(

hi
elm
using XMLHttpRequest to retrieve an XML
Firefox does not recognize it to be UTF-8
http://www.elstel.com/checkroot/xml-changelog.html
although this in the header of the rss: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
isn`t there something like htmlencode(text) that converts to ‘ instead of %247 as escape(text) does
Peng
elm: That page works for me.
elm
for me it does not: t files: ’pkg ver-rel arch’ instead of ’pkg-ver-rel’: easier to pa
the is displayed as box rather than as quote
Peng
elm: Oh, didn't notice that. Good point.
elm
The problem seems to be that ‘ is auto encoded as unicode instead of being left in place by the xml-parser of foxy
is there any way to convert ascii characters back to &#xx; ?
Peng
Why wouldn't HTML/XML entities be parsed?
Cork
elm: as far as i know, firefox doesn't do encoding sniffing on the fly
and as the original html file doesn't have an encoding...
elm
Peng_: well they are parsed and converted to ascii characters
... but this is a problem if I want to emit HTML by javascript
Peng
Cork: Nonetheless, switching to ISO-8859-1 does not help.
elm: I'm sleepy now, but ISTM that if everything is being done correctly, that would not be a problem.
Cork
switching to?
i don't see any problem...
no boxes here (in minefield)
elm
Cork[home]: look for files: pkg ver-rel arch instead of pkg-ver-rel: easier t
view it with Firefox
Cork
oh
minefield == firefox
just development version
just a note i the pkg ver-rel look in all browsers here (ie8, chrome, opera, minefield)
but only on two of the occurences
and both in the html file and the rss
predator7
hallo
ich suche ein addon für firefox
wenn ich einen text markiere soll das addon erkennen ob es sich um einen link (http://) handelt, und dann diesen automatisch in einem neuen tab öffnen.
Peng
predator7: irc.mozilla.org #firefox.de
predator71
? wie
Peng
Ah.
biesi
predator7, das hier ist eigentlich ein englischer channel... vielleicht solltest du die frage besser auf dem server irc.mozilla.org im channel #firefox.de stellen
aber vielleicht ist das hier das addon was du willst: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1472
Peng
I wonder if he saw that?
biesi
heh, no idea
Peng
biesi: Well, thank you for your help. :) <3

Sowelu
Hey firefox people! Is there any way to get Firefox to wait longer before giving up on a slow page load?
(Like, after it's already connected.)
zjblabs
how can I completely and totally disable firefox's session restoration capabilities
I NEVER want to see my previous session EVER
but, for example, when I shut down firefox improperly it still give me the annoying as hell "Well, this is embarrasing"
That's *the* most annoying "feature" in 3.
it appears that you can't even completely disable session recording behaviour in 3.5
