Cork[home]

v3gard
I appreciate your input
I'll give the link you posted a shot, and see if I can make anything out of it
Goliath
hi
i downloaded a file from rapidshare
does firefox have integrity check? so i can be sure its ok
Cork[home]
what version?
Goliath
i use archlinux
Cork[home]
of firefox
Goliath
362
Cork[home]
(not that i can see why you would download firefox from rapidshare...)
362?
Goliath
no i didnt get firefox
         

Cork[home]
you mean 3.6.2?
Goliath
i got an ebook from rapidshare
but i have to verify that its ok
Cork[home]
ow, ok now i get it
Goliath
firefox-3.6-2
Cork[home]
no firefox doesn't have a version check
...
sorry md5check
there might be an extension though
augustl
is there a -moz-foo to hide the scroll bars? Not overflow: hidden, that'll disable scrolling with mouse wheel etc. I just want the scrollbars to be invisible.
Cork[home]
Goliath: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=md5+check
Goliath
Cork[home]: would it be any good?
i get the file from rapidshare
Cork[home]
Goliath: only if you know anyplace to find an md5 check sum
Goliath
nope
Cork[home]
else there isn't much firefox or many other programs for that matter can do
programs can handle specific file formats
but check integrity without a check sum for unknown formats is imposible
augustl: you could try: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/-moz-hidden-unscrollable
augustl
Cork[home]: "disables scrolling of XML root elements and <html>, <body> by arrow keys and mouse wheel." - that's not what I want (or is it?)
Cork[home]
ow only hide the scrollbars?
but still let you scroll the page?
Jan|
how do I open mutiple tabs in the same window from windows command line when firefox isn't running ?
if I use the -new-tab it makes a new window for each but I want to use the same window
auscompgeek
-new-tab doesn't exist, does it?
Cork[home]
it does
auscompgeek
oh.
Cork[home]
there is an about:config setting to not start new links in a separat window
im searching for it right now
figital
just testing this in a frameset
Cork[home]
Jan|, augustl: i think it might be browser.link.open_newwindow
         

auscompgeek
er, something external
I think&
Cork[home]
na that wasn't it
ya i thought so too, but can't find any
auscompgeek
same now&
Cork[home]
auscompgeek
ah
Cork[home]
its a hidden pref apperently >_>
thats why i didn't find it at first
auscompgeek
no wonder&
Cork[home]
GAH!
"Mozilla Firefox (versions between 1.0 and 3.0.* removed from 3.5) "
--'
auscompgeek
Cork[home]
already reading it :D
auscompgeek
:D
jcromartie
I've got a simple HTML doc with a <table border="1"> tag, but the table shows no border... even when viewing it with CSS turned off
auscompgeek
try using CSS, or put a unit on that value
like 1px?
Where is everyone?
There's usually more people in here.
jcromartie
auscompgeek: I can't use CSS
Cork[home]
no border is the old way of setting border = true
auscompgeek
oh, I thought this was moznet :P
jcromartie
I have to do it without CSS
auscompgeek
oops&
Cork[home]
jcromartie: why?
jcromartie
so border=true is the canonical way to do it? I thought it was border=<border width>
Cork[home]: 508
client wants it
gotta do it
Cork[home]
508 what?
jcromartie
Section 508 compliance.
Cork[home]
doesn't tell me anything actually >_>
jcromartie
Cork[home]
jcromartie: what doctype?
jcromartie
government accessibility standards
XHTML 1.0 strict... that's probably it!
thanks!
Cork[home]
style="border:1px solid black" is just as accessible as border="1"...
jcromartie
I am not a fan of XHTML 1.0 strict, honestly, I don't know why it's set to that
Cork[home]: you've obviously never had a federal web development client :)
auscompgeek
Use XHTML 1.0 Transitional
Cork[home]
jcromartie: if you send it as application/xhtml+xml thats the only doctype there is for that at the moment
jcromartie
if they want borders when CSS is turned off, then they get borders when CSS is turned off
Cork[home]
else its just wrong
jcromartie
yeah
Goliath
fu
opera ftw
auscompgeek
&
Just b/c it has the Opera Turbo feature&
Cork[home]
auscompgeek the black box man :D
test34
Any fix for the "Firefox is already running.." bug??
jcromartie
I don't get it
Cork[home]
auscompgeek: btw no goliath was unhappy that firefox couldn't magicaly validate integrity on downloaded files without check sums
jcromartie
the XHTML 1.0 DTD says border is a valid attribute
auscompgeek
ah, from a few months ago&
jcromartie
and the value is in pixels
auscompgeek
oh.
Cork[home]
test34: "bug"?
auscompgeek
test34, delete parent.lock
done.
mistermocha
is anyone here familiar with Opera's "Notes" feature?
test34
auscompgeek, I mean permanent fix
Cork[home], yes
auscompgeek
test34, close Firefox properly
Cork[home]
test34: it one of a few reasons, you have a nother browser active, or your profile wasn't unlocked when you shutdown firefox the last time
mistermocha
I've been trying to find a firefox extension that will replace this feature
test34
auscompgeek, I always close it properly
mistermocha
er... supply this feature
Cork[home]
test34: and as auscompgeek said, that only happens if your partition was abused
auscompgeek
test34, you go to File > Exit everything you want to close Firefox?
test34
I have that problem on Ubuntu, Windows XP and Windows 7 (and other people I know experience it too)
auscompgeek
I rarely experience it.
test34
auscompgeek, is firefox the only program that you can't use the "X" in the top right corner?
auscompgeek
no, but it's best to use File > Exit, as it guarantees that Firefox will close properly.
Cork[home]
test34: when it happens its 1. firefox is active, 2. you have an incosistent file system, 3. an external program has locked the file, so firefox can't remove it, 4. powercut or similar that cause firefox not to remove the file
rjohnson19
I've heard the Ghostery extensions can cause Firefox to not shutdown properly, if you have that.
auscompgeek
Certain add-ons prevent Firefox from closing too.
Cork[home]
ya
test34
rjohnson19, I do
Cork[home]
:D
rjohnson19
A-ha.
Cork[home]
problem solved :)
auscompgeek
haha
test34
ok, thanks
auscompgeek
What does Ghostery do again?
Cork[home]
remove history and "makes you invisible on the web" as they call it >_>
bull if you ask me...
auscompgeek
agreed
test34
it blocks tracking hosts
Cork[home]
it does what noscript does, but with errors :D
test34
adsense, analytics and a bunch others
it doesn't block useful scripts
Cork[home]
neather does noscript if you wan't it to
test34
maybe I need to try noscript again
auscompgeek
ABP can do that as well.
:)
but I prefer ABP + NoScript, for security reasons.
test34
I have ABP too
auscompgeek
Install the EasyPrivacy list if you don't want NoScript.
That reminds me, I updated my ABP lists on my USB but not on my computer&
Cork[home]
auscompgeek: its been a while since i last played with abp, can you really block downloading of js files?
auscompgeek
Yeah.
Cork[home]
i know you can't block thinks like html files
auscompgeek
You can block anything.
Cork[home]
nope
auscompgeek
You can, if they're in a frame
Cork[home]
ya :D
but not anything ^^'
auscompgeek
I did it once, to get rid of a redundant blank frame that loaded a redundant HTML file.
Stupid routers.
mistermocha
hmm... anyone?
Cork[home]
mistermocha: anyone what?
test34
mistermocha, this is Firefox, not Opera ?
mistermocha
I know it's not Opera in here
Cork[home]
mistermocha: whats your question?
mistermocha
I'm trying to find if there's a Firefox extension that does what a certain Opera feature does
test34
ah ok
mistermocha
Opera's notes was very useful for me...
test34
<mistermocha> is anyone here familiar with Opera's "Notes" feature
mistermocha
I do tech support and constantly drop canned letters into replies to tickets
auscompgeek
Er, there's a Jetpack that can do that.
mistermocha
it was great with opera because the notes were editable on the fly and I could drag & drop them into place
Cork[home]
mistermocha: there are alot of extensions for adding private notes to webpages
auscompgeek
Well, sort of, but here it is: https://jetpack.mozillalabs.com/demos/notepack-install.html
Cork[home]
and even for adding public ones
and there is jetpack :D
mistermocha
jetpack? sounds all sleek and modern
auscompgeek
There's also a user JavaScript that could do something like that.
Cork[home]
it is, its a try run for what will be a new extension enviroment for firefox
auscompgeek
(Action) can't wait for lightweight extensions
mistermocha
installing and restarting now...
auscompgeek
There's already lightweight themes, shouldn't be too long :)
er, I still don't have my firefox cloak&
what, it takes a week to process?
test34
the new extension system, will it protect Firefox against extensions?
I guess that would make it more heavyweight
auscompgeek
It's easier to use. :)
raden_work
anyone tell me why firefox so laggy latley ? dual core 2.8 GHZ it can take 3 seconds to switch tabs with only 2-3 tabs open
`RobW
FF has officially p-d me off and I used to be a fan of FF. Here's my problem (and yes, I've googled it and the results didn't help).
When clicking a link, refreshing a page, clicking a bookmark or clicking anything in general, FF will "hang" for about 5 seconds before it recognizes I clicked something
Any ideas as of why?
Guess not, looks like I'll be sticking w/chrome. Thanks anywyas
auscompgeek
&
rjohnson19
We really dropped the ball there.
Janni
Hi. Is it easy to configure Firefox to apply certain CSS rules to all websites?
auscompgeek
Janni
Thanks
auscompgeek
np
That requires a restart for edits to it however.
You can also use Stylish.
Er, no, I'm not talking about Jason Barnabe. :P
