yeah... i cant exactly find it.
rtypo
hi. i have over one hundred bookmarks and the list keeps growing. how can i organize them better- what works for you?
should i use the default organizing feature or should i switch to Tag-like service delicious.com?
Peng
Firefox supports tagging your bookmarks, ya know.
rtypo
yeah, you are right
but i'm not used to it very well, so i forgot that
and i cannot delete any of the bookmarks... they're all valuable. so before i hit one thousand... i better start organizing :D
Peng
Meh. I have way more bookmarks than that and I barely organize 'em.
That's what the search feature is for! :D
OTOH, I am widely regarded as an idiot, so...
rtypo
:)well the search might work if i remember anything about the bookmark, but i'm also a kind of organizing freak :D
i started with nice folders, but then my temp folder grew exponentially because i couldn't create more folders for each specific topic :D
i'm going to check the tagging ability of firefox, and eventually i'll switch to delicious.com. oh long night ahead
hey Peng, what's the difference between a Tag and a Keyword?
they both appear in the bookmark info dialog
Peng
rtypo: Keywords are so you can type e.g. "google foo" in the location bar and it'll take you to http://www.google.com/search?q=foo
rtypo
ohh, got it
bahadunn
when opening a bookmark it opens in a sidebar
how can I stop that from happening?
         

Peng
bahadunn: All bookmarks or one bookmark?
bahadunn
um
Peng
bahadunn: If it's one bookmark, right-click, Properties, untick opening it in the sidebar. I think.
bahadunn
seems like one actually
in the organize bookmarks?
Peng: I dont see a properties when I right click on a bookmark
Peng
bahadunn: Erk. Um, just single-click on it and use the property pane thingy, then? I dunno.
bahadunn
Peng: got it I thnk

Using saved password fails to work for site: webchat.freenode.net Though the password _is_ (has already been) saved, the saved account name & pw is not filled in on the screen. Bug? Fix? Thanks.
Gambaroni
Is there any way to when opening new tab, that it opens just to the right of the selected tab instead of far away to the right?
xangua
i think fx 3.6 has that behavior
Gambaroni
xangua I got 3.5.7? :P
Accesshater
Gambaroni: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1956/
Gambaroni
xangua when is that one released?
xangua
Gambaroni: mozilla says in the first quarter of this year
Gambaroni: currently firefox 3.6 RC1 was released
Gambaroni
Ok
Think it would be that plugin until 3.6 is released :)
thanks Accesshater
Accesshater
yw
Gambaroni
Accesshater for sooo long I've missed that feature :D
Accesshater

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5890/
im glad i made one person happy today :p
micr0x
hiya guys
my mozilla crashed on me, and can't get it to run anymore!!
SuD
did you run out of disk space?
micr0x
each time I run it, it gives me an XULRunner error
no
it says Error: Platform version '1.9.1.7' is not compatible with minVersion >=1.9.1.4 maxVersion <=1.9.1.4
I tried fixing, reinstalling, but nothing fixed it!!
         

Peng
What about -safe-mode?
(Action) points to the links in the topic too
micr0x
same error in safe mode
I have the latest version btw
xangua
latest stable┬┐
micr0x

xangua
micr0x: try to open it in console and see what it says
micr0x
I'm on vista
xangua
mmm, then try with a new firefix profile
micr0x
how so?
xangua
micr0x: google helps ;) http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Profiles
micr0x
I'm trying to figure out what this problem mean. I'm not even sure what is XULRunner is!!
Accesshater
micr0x already tried to reinstall firefox?
micr0x
yes
Accesshater
micr0x: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/294873
micr0x
xangua: so will deleting my old "default" account delete all of my preference, bookmarks etc...?
ok got it
xangua
thant's not what i said
micr0x
then what?
Accesshater
make a new profile by running firefox -profileManager in the commandline
micr0x
this is what I did
and I got the same error, so should I delete the old one?
after backing up?
okay, I deleted the old one, now I get the same error !!
and the files too
Accesshater
hmm
micr0x did you try the application.ini thing?
micr0x
no
Accesshater
you could try that
micr0x
same error!
if I wanted to restore my old profile again, can I do that?
from the backup files
Accesshater
yeah
micr0x
how?
Accesshater
change the name in profiles.ini
to the old backup folder name
ur use the profilemanager
or*
micr0x
profile manager brings up firefox now lol
so where's that profiles.ini located?
Accesshater
in the home folder -> .mozilla -> firefox
micr0x
ok
thanks guys

kira_sama
hey guys - i'm writing an extension and i need to know the pid of my running mozilla/firefox extension - any idea how i could get that ?
*need to know pid of my firefox browser
waht
how do you make a firefox plugin
Accesshater
http://lifehacker.com/264490/how-to-build-a-firefox-extension
waht
do you have to redo it every time a new version comes out
Accesshater
dunno
waht
oh you have to use javascript?
:(
Jahooty
what language did you want to use/
?
waht
c++
Jahooty
it's probably possible. not sure though
waht
i thought the plugins where binary
i didn't know it was a scripting with xul
isnt there a cross platform c++ library mozilla is built with
Jahooty
plugin or extension?
waht
oh maybe i meant extension
i don't use any addons on my firefox
but i want to make a cross platform app
so if i could just tie it into firefox maybe it will be easier
Jahooty
that would be extension i think then
waht
oh i see
Jahooty
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Creating_Custom_Firefox_Extensions_with_the_Mozilla_Build_System
i'm not a firefox guru though
waht
oh crap you have to compile mozilla to build the extension?
this comupter is 2ghz
that could take a loooooong time
maybe i will find a new strategy haha
Jahooty
no idea
i'm just googling stuff
waht
oh i see
thx
davidd_
i have a firefox tab that just wont close
clicked a wrong link
it wants me to download some .exe
zmjjmz
kill it, when session restore comes back up uncheck it
davidd_
if i try to close the tab it offers me a dialog with "ok" and "cancel"
kill it from ctrl-al-del menu?
zmjjmz
sure
davidd_
did not work
it didnt offer me the oops i am sorry screen
zmjjmz
:/
and it restored the session?
davidd_
without asking yes
zmjjmz
and the download is still bothering you?
davidd_
yes i still cant close the tab
zmjjmz
can you open about:sessionrestore ?
davidd_
yes i can
but that wont close the annoying tab
only double the tabs
zmjjmz
:/
that wasn't well thought out on my part
davidd_
http:// www1.yourzone-bestdefender .com <- this is the dangerous host
put some spaces in there to prevent clicker
can i firewall this host somewhere?
zmjjmz
you can block it in the router
or you could modify the hosts file to make it point to a different IP (such as google)
davidd_
let me try that last one
since i dont understand windows firewalling
and dont control the router
zmjjmz
ok
you know where the hosts file is?
davidd_
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
zmjjmz
ok
and you know the format?
davidd_
yes i know unix
but this time it did offer me to restore
zmjjmz
ok
davidd_
so it worked
i am freed
thx for your help
but still , i think it is a bit dangerous that firefox allows websites to have something "on close tab"
that keeps them open
i dont even click on the X on such popups
always alt-f4 or ctrl-w
Raccoon`
Whats the excuse for firefox still being vulnerable to hijack websites like nimp.org
Gadien
Hey all, I really really want to find out how to display the description on Bookmarks folders when mouse-overed
Bitch081
why is downloading file using firefox so damn slow
sybariten
OK this is insane
(almost)
i just lost swedish char mapping, in firefox
its american now instead
any ideas why?
this happens to me in my file manager once every now and then, maybe every two weeks, for no explainable reason. I just quit and restart then.
but i've never gotten the american key layout in firefox before
