Uhm. I use the GTK Theme 'Dust' on my system. If I use the default theme in Firefox, when I type in the URL bar the text appears on a black background with a black blue color. It works only if I use the DustFox theme, but it doesn't supports personas.. So, how I can change the color how the urlbar without editing the gtk theme? I'm searching in the default theme's CSS, but I find nothing about the
color of the urlbar...

Hi, is there a specific Firefox Mobile IRC room?
kbrosnan
Robertof: Firefox picks up the default url color from the gtk theme
Robertof
uhm, and what do you advise me to do?
kbrosnan
is it easy to tweak that? else check userstyles.org for something you can modify
as
hello, is it possible to find out what actual fonts has been used by Firefox during rendering of html page (assuming that one or more of the specific fonts mentioned in css missing in system)?
jefferai
Does anyone know where I might find information on how to do various tasks in Firefox Mobile? Such as zoom in/out?
kbrosnan
http://mobile.support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/How+to+zoom+in+and+out
jefferai
kbrosnan: I figured that out on my own, but was hoping there'd be some way to better control the behavior...level of zoom, for instance
kbrosnan: don't suppose you know how to change the user agent? if I look for agent in about:config on Fennec, it only allows me to change the extra part, but not the entire agent
kbrosnan: doh, and something else: because double-tapping zooms in and out, even on about:config, there's no way to set preferences back to the default

hi
does anyone know how can i add "google uruguay" as my default search engine?
i'm on namoroka and the closest i could find was argentina...
cbreak
I was fighting so that google doesn't always make me use the local version :(
when I go to google.com, it always redirected me to google.ch
it's not a firefox setting, you have to tell google somehow which site you prefer. or you have to go to your local domain directly

cbreak, si sos chileno en espaƱol que queda mas practico :p
cbreak

julio_
no prob, thought you where from chile
but it was my missread... ch is not chile, it's cl :p
by the way, what ch stands for?
cbreak
switzerland
Digicrime
how do you autoidentify?
cbreak
latin name of my country is "Confederatio Helvetica" or something like that
julio_
:p not spanish for sure, lol
Digicrime
i mean, how do you autoidentify with nickserv?
cbreak
your IRC client has to do that
mine has a password option which I use
Digicrime
how do i make it do that?
cbreak
depends on the IRC client
I just enter the password into the field labeled "Password"
maybe you can use auto-commands to whisper the password to the nickserv
Digicrime
brilliant! i just figured it out!
thank you
cbreak
np
julio_
so, no clue on where to look for a personalized search regarding my country for the search bar?
cbreak
I dont use search bar, I use keywords
I type "wiki something", and it searches on wikipedia
or "google something" and it searches there
julio_
how is that
cbreak
have you clicked on the search bar icon for google and managed the engines?
julio_
i used it some time back but cant remember just now
yes been there with no luck, maybe they just haven't made a custom for my needs yet
         

cbreak
does google have one?
julio_
what?
you mean if google.com.uy exists?
yes
cbreak
you can make google.com redirect to it
there's a setting somewhere on the google page
not sure if that works for you though

What's with Firefox and large images and video memory these days? With old videocards it crashes either itself, or X. Is there a way to make it stop abusing video memory?
fashizzlepop
Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out how to get my FF to highlight all the text when I click on the text box (like URL bar). I am on Arch Linux...
cbreak
doubleclick?
or tripple click
maybe
it's probably OS dependent
rjohnson19
Ctrl+L should select the url in the location bar...
CoJaBo-Aztec
fashizzlepop: browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll ?
fashizzlepop
Thanks for the help. CoJaBo-Aztec, that's what I needed, thanks. In windows it is default. :P
What about for my search bar?
I dont see a similar one for the search bar in about:config

i also tried setting network.nmegotiate uris and delegate
Aaron_
Does anyone know how to override JavaScript alert? I would like to disable all alerts and confirm dialouges
I tried the following to no avail: user_pref("capability.policy.default.Window.alert", "noAccess");
Boolean values don't seem to work either user_pref("capability.policy.default.Window.alert", false);
Cork
Aaron_: i had a looks through the current code tree, and couldn't find any listner for anything like that at all
so i would say that option doesn't exist
Aaron_
Hmm, another approach then...
Cork
ya extension
Aaron_
I can supress alerts with: window.alert = null;
Cork
you can
it will generate errors though
Aaron_
Ah. What is a better way to do it?
Cork
window.alert = function() {}; is a better option
Aaron_
Thanks. Let me try that.
Cork
that won't prevent alert() though (i think)
hmm so it did :)
Aaron_
Hmm it doesn't work within Greasemonkey: http://pastie.org/821366
Cork
you capsul it in a function :)
i don't think that will presist
i don't have grease installed on this comp at the moment though
Aaron_
Is this what you mean? http://pastie.org/821366 Not sure how to keep it persistent
cygnus_
can anyone help me with this kerberos / ntlm popup
even after ia dded the settings
i get gssapi lib not found or ntlm trying http as the spn when its https
Cork
Aaron_: let me start a new profile with grease and i'll have a look
Aaron_
Thanks, appreciate your help.
I've been messing with this all day, can't find a way to make it work.
Cork
http://pastebin.mozilla.org/702514
Aaron_
Testing..
Cork
the page can't reach into your greasemonkey script
so you have to insert it into the page
Aaron_
Almost there :)
Still getting an alert here http://pastie.org/821371
Could it be because the page isn't properly formatted?
Cork
no
i think its cause grease triggers after the page is read
so the inpage js has already run
Aaron_
Yeah I think you're right.
Cork
if you add it to onload it works
Aaron_
Cork: Well this is the closest I've gotten so far, thanks a lot for your help!
Cork
np
Aaron_: else something like this might be what your looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=alert
Aaron_
Yeah I tried quite a few of those, even modifying the source for some of them. My intention was to make it work seamlessly, to suppress prompts automatically without asking for approval. Unfortunately none of them do that.

hi, where is the best place to give feedback on 3.7?
is there only one irc channel?
GuidMorrow
why is firefox asking me to download random stuff each time I visit a webpage?
when it does ask me it'll have something like "application/octet-stream", and it's usually when I open pages in a new tab or when I click to open in the same tab
Cork
GuidMorrow: you have a link?
it sounds like a miss configured webserver
GuidMorrow
I don't have web server; I do have a screenshot - http://imgbin.org/index.php?page=image&id=1259
Cork
GuidMorrow: this kind of dialogs is shown when the webserver sends the file with the mime type "application/octet-stream"
what is means is that its a long list of bytes, unspecified
and firefox doesn't know what to do with it
so its a problem on the server side
GuidMorrow
! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIME#Content-Disposition
Cork
GuidMorrow: that is not the problem
with or without it you will still get a download window if you get a "application/octet-stream" from the server
firefox has noway of handling that mimetype
GuidMorrow
not sure, but is being behind a router making it worse
because minutes ago I just rebooted it
or at least IP released/renewed it
Cork
GuidMorrow: its not router, ip, or anyform of connection related
its the webserver sending wrong mime type to you
GuidMorrow
doesn't it know how to send an HTML or PHP web page? and even though after I cancel the download request and retry the link, it won't load afterwards, and gets stuck on "Loading" or it might show "Problem loading Page" in the tab

I'm looking for some statistic(s) about Thunderbird usage

Hi
I had an idea
Is there such a thing a gzip SVG files?
I.E Single SVG but sent as gzip?
I know technically that these days bandwidth isn't an issue...
Cork
Qcoder00: you can compress the http stream, thats about the same
Qcoder00
cork: OK
Next question, does Firefox support compressed http streams?
Cork
ya
Qcoder00
which it will expand internally?
Cork
Qcoder00
OK
Cork
not all browsers support it though
but all modern browsers do
Qcoder00
With modern fast systems, i'm suprised more web servers aren't using compression of http , or at least if they are, It's not visible
Cork
Qcoder00: to the users no its not visible at all
you would have to look at the raw http stream to see it
Qcoder00
I'm considering asking if Wikimedia uses it...
Cork
don't think so
Qcoder00
Also and this is soemthing else gzip SVG is also a partial encryption...
Cork
uh... no
Qcoder00
Well , I say parital, in that anyone with zlib would be able to decode the file...
*'partial'
Anyway a site like Wikipedia which uses a LOT of bandwidth...
could benefit greatly from compressed streams I think..
Cork
Qcoder00: if you inspect the http header you will find "Content-Encoding: gzip" from those sites that use compression
Qcoder00: gziping the trafic will increase the load on the server, and the lowserd size in data has less importans then that load
lowserd==lowerd

kbrosnan

"SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length." how can I have firefox ignore this?
kbrosnan
i doubt you can
you can check that using oscp validation is disabled

Hello. I was wondering if anyone from mozilla europe was here. You guys were handing out firefox stickers at FOSDEM and I wanted to know where you got them printed (and the kind of prices you got).
We want to do some (cone shaped) for the VideoLAN/VLC project
mzz
I wish I knew who to ask about that
kbrosnan
dionoea: #marketing on irc.mozilla.org
dionoea
ah, thanks
is that the same as freenode?
kbrosnan
no
dionoea
ok

hi
i am looking for a spec which describes the interaction between a browser and a java applet, i.e. everything that is expected to exist within the context of the browser
is there even a spec or will firefox just execute some plugin by sun?
kbrosnan
i would guess that is defined by the java plugin
PrototypeX29A
there should be some abstract specification on that
kbrosnan
NPAPI?
PrototypeX29A
not about the interaction between plugin and browser, but about the interaction between plugin and jvm
kbrosnan
sounds like something outside the domain of the browser
PrototypeX29A
if the plugin is outside of the domain of the browser, yes
but as i understand it the java plugin is an integral part of firefox
kbrosnan
no
Neither Java or the Java Pluing is needed to run Firefox
PrototypeX29A
no need to discuss this question :)
it seems the plugin is not part of the mozilla project, but developed by sun
kbrosnan
correct
PrototypeX29A
so we actually don't really know what applets actually can do?
