Mango , do you know how to enable all extensions back?
Mango
x-faktor: No, I'm afraid I don't.
What do you mean?
x-faktor
i disabled all extensions as you
its too much pain to enable all my 70 extensions back clicking
Mango
ahhhh. I don't know; sorry :)
maybe http://www.autohotkey.com/?
;)
x-faktor
it'll take more time than clicking
lol
autohotkey not that simple

Yes, if you'd just wait a minute :P

hello., after updating to snow leopard, i have problems syncing Macports. Anyone had similar problems?
ZimCS
Hi everyone. When closing my browser, it no longer asks me if I'd like to save my tabs, it just does it. How can I get the browser to ask me again?
base2op
ZimCS: see browser.tabs.warnOnClose in about:config
ZimCS: should be set to true if you want it to prompt you

hi, i'm having trouble opening a chrome url. is there a way to enable it?
kbrosnan
eflynn: chrome urls can only be opened by copy and pasting into the address bar
eflynn
kbrosnan: i did that
kbrosnan: it's a custom application written for mozilla
kbrosnan: here's the uri: chrome://espdesktop/content/desktop.xul
oops
kbrosnan: http://www.experience-sampling.org/esp.html#SEC10
kbrosnan
firefox 3.6?
eflynn
kbrosnan: yessir
kbrosnan
that is blocked
eflynn
kbrosnan: aha, is there a way to unblock it?
hup
omg, i compile it with debug enabled!!
kbrosnan
that would do it, beeps on every assert
eflynn: first bullet point of https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Firefox_3.6_for_developers#Miscellaneous
         

eflynn
ok, i see
hup
(Action) recompiling ...
TheSHAD0W
Just a rant... Why did Firefox for OS X tell me to upgrade to 3.5.7 and make me download it before telling me to upgrade to 3.6?
cbreak
mine didn't tell me to update to 3.6
so I did it without being asked.
Because I AM A REBEL!
beachdaze
hey question.. doesn't Firefox store it's bookmarks in /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile/bookmarks.html ?
kbrosnan
beachdaze: no
Peng
beachdaze: It's places.sqlite now (along with history).
beachdaze
kbrosnan, well that explains why I can't find what I'm looking for. is that exportable? I have a ubuntu 9.04 drive in an extral case (power supply doa). need to copy the bookmarks off
Peng
beachdaze: It's just a file. Specifically an SQLite file. Copy it (plus places.sqlite-journal), hopefully with Firefox closed..
beachdaze
Peng, ok, i don't want to import this into my firefox, but it will be imported to another machine. Can I just drop this onto the new machine in the same location?
Peng
beachdaze: With Firefox closed, sure/
beachdaze
thanks peng...

Hello
I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix the problem where clicking on the File, Edit, View ect menus takes about 7 or more seconds to load. Same thing with clicking anything in those menus once they do load and same with right clicking on a webpage. Clicking on tabs is fast and well as the back/forward buttons + to open a new tab etc
Firefox 3.6, this just started happening after an update to 3.6
gentoo, x86
tolkad
my firefox just redirected dns to the wrong website
it thought some random website was google english. It's a large website so that really doesn't make sense. I restarted and it worked fine. I haven't even visited google english (it's the one where the logo has the word "english" on it)
Is it a bug or is someone attacking me
kevcox
Does anyone know how to make the windows version of Firefox think it is on a windows machine when browsing?
kbrosnan
what?
kevcox
I'm taking an online college course and the web app "Blackboard" is not compatible with FireFox
So the teacher sent out a link which showed us how to modify the FireFox browser so when accessing the webpage it thought it was being accessed via a MAC
The class is over and I don't remember how to change it back,
tolkad
do you have user agent switcher?
get user agent switcher addon
and fix it
kevcox
Now when I use my Vista laptop with FireFox and try to access a website it says it is not compatible with MAC.
tolkad
alternatively
go to about:config
search useragent
err something like that
Cork
:D
kevcox
I see something that says. general.useragent.override which is set to Mac
tolkad
whatever, there is some config option you need to reset to default
Cork
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59
tolkad
kevcox: right click it and click reset
kevcox
Okay, how do I save?
tolkad
it's saved
kbrosnan
restart firefox
kevcox
Touch Down! Thanks
BigJ
my firefox is taking a long time to load pages, other machines on my network are blazing fast
hoonteke
is there a room to ask questions about thunderbird?
harth
hoonteke: #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org
hoonteke
bah irc.mozilla.org
not freenode, of course
thanks harth.
harth
yeah, I know
you could try here, I guess
hoonteke
no no, it's just funny things of which we don't think when we're alone. I tried like 4 other things, and never even thought to head to mozilla.org.
Samus_Aran
is there some way to make Firefox return to 100% zoom after using Ctrl+[+] / [-] ?
Cork
Samus_Aran: ctrl+0
Samus_Aran
Cork: thank you
Cork
np
chovy
is ff going to support sqllite?
Cork
uh... what?
Russnix
Does Firefox fully support Integrated Windows Authentication?
Kano
hi, is there a file to parse which contains the latest stable version number of firefox and thunderbird?
Cork
Kano: you mean on the web?
Kano
sure
also i have got problems with 32 bit firefox and 32 bit flash with 64 bit linux
it just crashes
Cork
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/MD5SUMS might be what your looking for
maybe not the best, but doable
Kano
not really, i only need 3.6 or 3.0.1
evaluser
question: Wasn't there a window.prompt alert box that you could customize the buttons on MDC a while back?
Cork
Kano: only need?
Kano
Cork: for a script
Cork
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest-3.0/MD5SUMS
opps
http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest-3.6/MD5SUMS
Kano
i dont need md5sums
Cork
Kano: no but its the best you can get
Kano
that does firefox check?
Cork
it checkes the update channels
Kano
when it checks for updates
Cork
you can't get the version number from there
swathanthran|afk
can i ask about addons.mozilla.org here? isn't it silly that addons.mozilla.org looks at user-agents to install addons? "Download now" button pushes me (no other alternative) to getfirefox.com when i have a different user agent..
Cork
swathanthran|afk: yup thats intentional
Kano
ok will parse md5sum then
swathanthran|afk
why so? isn't there other better way to check it ?
Cork
swathanthran|afk: not that the webserver can see
Kano
the latest symlink for thunderbird does NOT point to 3.0.1
why not
Cork
that looks like a miss
swathanthran|afk
Cork: what is the check for? and why the block on download?
Cork
swathanthran|afk: that i donno, you would have to ask that in irc.mozilla.org at #bmo i guess
Peng
#bmo isn't a great choice. Maybe, umm, #addons? Hm.
Actually that's not a very good choice either.
Oh, it looks like it is. :d
:D *
Kano
where is 64 bit?
Cork
firefox?
Kano
yes
Cork
there isn't any
Kano
it was in trunk
Cork
mozilla doesn't offer any 64bit firefox for the moment
Kano
well 32 bit crashes with 32 bit flash,what would you do
Cork
linux?
Kano
under 64 bit linux
Cork
and you've checked that you have the latest binary?
Kano
you can be sure
Cork
then you would have to bug adobe
not much other to do
*else
Kano
well you can use a 64 bit build + 64 bit flash
Cork
and i run 64 bit linux and 32bit firefox >_>
work perfectly
Kano
debian lenny?
Cork
ubuntu
Kano
which version
Cork
9.10
Kano
will check
evaluser
Kano Good luck... I've been bugging Adobe for over a year now to get flash to work properly on my Nix distro.
Kano
i use debian lenny
evaluser
It's quite picky
Kano
the 10.1 beta2 does not fully crash,but does not work
evaluser
9.0r124 seems to be the only 32bit Flash that works in 32bit Moz FF on a 64bit Nix distro.
Cork
nope i use 10.0.42.34
Kano
well i can test 9 too
evaluser
Sometimes the 64bit beta of Flash actually works with my distros native 64bit FF but still crashes a lot
Kano
yes it works really much better
evaluser
ugghh well I've spent almost an hour scouring MDC for the alert/confirm/prompt dialog that you could customize the buttons (can't remember which one of those it was)... I know it was there a while back but it seems to have disappeared.
Cork
evaluser: you mean for xul or web?
evaluser
either one... I'm preferring web DOM but I'd like to reread the article even if it's for XUL
there were extra parameters on the alert/confirm/prompt that set things up... but I can't seem to find it again... I should have bookmarked it.
I even went through window.prompt/confirm/alert history and it's not there.
the images on window.a/c/p are different from what I remember too
I need to work on my eidetic memory more ;)
Cork
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Code_snippets/Dialogs_and_Prompts
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/nsIPromptService
Kano
evaluser: right, 9 works
evaluser
Cork: hmmm those images and code blocks definitely weren't what I saw... oh well it was just a programming thought burp
Cork: Thanks for looking
Cork
np
evaluser
kano: We need to send some motivational beaters to Adobe to get their engineers in gear ;)
Kano
now i only need java for 64 bit
as the globally installed java is 64 bit not 32 bit
evaluser
Really?
64bit on Mdv here
