Hello. Anyone know how to copy to the clipboard in firefox using javascript? Any way to do it without running a flash program?
kbrosnan
joedeveloper: not without getting your users to jump through hoops of whitelisting your site in about:config
joedeveloper
This is going to be an internal thing for some automation, so if the hoops are a one-time setup, thats ok.
kbrosnan
one min, i'll get a link

MaxHR
Hello, how do I avoid time out errors on slow connections? (dialup internet) Is there a setting for this? I often will have the page load halfway, and then suddenly loose it all with full page connection reset error
I specifically get "the connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" message
and have to reload a couple times to get the page to come up
         

Yarca
MaxHR: the only thing I can think off is that you can tell firefox to have less http connections at the same time
which would reduce the impact of a slow connection on them
MaxHR: if you want to give that a try, type "about:config" into the address bar to get to the "hidden" extended config with the more advanced settings
MaxHR
which setting is it called?
Yarca
and then search for network.http.max-conncections (maximum amount of concurrent connections to all servers)
and network.http.max-conncections-per-server (maximum amount for a single server)
MaxHR
ok
th
x
Yarca
also, you can try to deactivate network.http.pipelining
which does many requests to one server at a time and not one after another
(which probably increases the likeliness of failure with a low bandwidth)
MaxHR
any suggestions for numbers on the first two settings?
pipelining is already off
Yarca
MaxHR: you can try anything down to 1 :D
just mess around with it and see what works best for you
MaxHR
what about the keepalive timeout, should I increase that number?
Yarca
oh that might also be an idea
firefox keeps a connection open for multiple requests one after another, and that should be the timeout when that connection is considered dead
so increasing it can probably help keeping it open also under bad conditions
MaxHR
Yarca: thx, I will play with the settings, bye

hi, I'm trying to register a custom protocol eclipse:// which launches e.g. eclipse://local/file/path in the eclipse IDE. I'm on OSX 10.6 with firefox 3.6.
I have followed the mac instructions here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol (though noting that this is only for firefox 3 and below), restarted firefox several times but no luck
I get the same warning every time: "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (eclipse) isn't associated with any program."
kbrosnan
you need to register it at the os level. those prefs are not aplicable anymore
waigani
kbrosnan: sweet
how do I do that
kbrosnan
i don't have access to os x
waigani
any resources out there you could point me to?
kbrosnan
short of searching on os x set protocol handler, no
waigani
kbrosnan: okay thanks anyway

auscompgeek
no!!!
dolske is fast.
Cork
yuck...
ya he is
syrius
where does firefox store its files in ram?
like what folder?
[reed]
auscompgeek: twss
Cork
syrius: what os
syrius
I know of the cache folder
linux
auscompgeek
er, in ram? that's& in ram
ram != hdd
syrius
but some files seem to get deleted there
Cork
syrius: ~/.mozilla/firefox/Cache
opps
kthomas_vh
syrius, you'll need a ramdisk for that :)
Cork
syrius: ~/.mozilla/firefox/<your profile>/Cache
kthomas_vh
though I've done the ramdisk route :)
syrius
how do I access files that get deleted in cache like from flash?
is it stored in ram?
Cork
syrius: flash has its own cache
kthomas_vh
^^ half of southern Florida on Comcast has just gone away
auscompgeek
er, usually, Flash files are stored in temp folder
dolske
yep. will lift it in a bit.
auscompgeek
:O
syrius
why is that kthomas_vh
what happened?
kthomas_vh
NP, I'm no Comcast fan
auscompgeek
syrius, look at the ban
syrius
ooo
dolske
syrius: flooding from someone just before you joined.
syrius
comcast blows
I have comcast
internet is good
but tv is crap too many annoying ads
kthomas_vh
yeah, I've spent a good week of my life talking to comcast techs
syrius
I don't watch the tv much
why is that?
kthomas_vh
well...
anyway, normally your cache will not be in RAM
auscompgeek
But you could put it in RAM, even your profile if you wanted to.
kthomas_vh
^ which can offer some speed improvements :)
but watch out for those big, balooning files
dolske
better to just let the OS file caching deal with that. :P
kthomas_vh
well, depends on how many tabs you want to keep open at once :)
auscompgeek
:D
kthomas_vh
with TabMixPlus and TabGroups Manager...
I try to keep it below a few thousand
auscompgeek
:O
kthomas_vh
hey, I need a lot of stack space
dolske
if you've got a lot of tabs, it would generally be better to let the browser use memory than to tie it up with a ram disk for cache.
ram disks generally are not worth the effort these days.
kthomas_vh
well... been there... there are tradeoffs... and memory usage has gotten better in 3.x
jschall
why does chrome work perfectly in kde as far as file handlers go and firefox is just a trainwreck?
ttyX
can someone tell me how to remove outdated languages from firefox?
auscompgeek
?
ttyX
yeah upgraded from 3.5 to 3.6 on ubuntu
auscompgeek
What do you mean "outdated languages"?
ttyX
its version is 3.5.2
and says its not compatible with version 3.6
auscompgeek
Then update it.
ttyX
how?
auscompgeek
Or uninstall it.
press check for updates?
ttyX
that's not there
dolske
Looks like that idiot did the same thing 3 days ago, almost to the minute.
consolecowboy
is there an easy way to undo an addon update?

hi all i cant seem to get totem working inside firefox on ubuntu 8.04, 9.04, and ubuntu 9.10, any other players that have a plugin for firefox that works? (i have firefox 3.0) and i cant get any newer flash then 9.0 into firefox for ubuntu 8.04
vivgrn
can someone direct me to a resource which can help me know how and where to put in the proxy information in a http packet?
kbrosnan
maybe an rfc for that?
Raydiation
does firefox directly use the codecs from xiph.org or do they use ffmpeg?
ogg/vorbis
[reed]
Raydiation: xiph.org codecs
L65druid
I want to disable BOLD, could I use greasemonkey to do that?
Raydiation
[reed]: ty
kbrosnan
L65druid: sounds doable
L65druid

Peng
Sounds more efficient to do it with Stylish.
Just, like, "font-weight: normal !important;" or something.
kaarol
well, I'm using a live cd, could anyone please paste a url to linux version of firefox?
