Why does Firefox use 450 MB RAM here for 12 pages?

hi is there a way to modify the headers on a form POST ... i also want to modify the URI to which the form is posted ??
i looked at firebug but to no avail and Tamper Data add-on doesn't modify the URI
Shizuo
Are you some kind of criminal?
onkara
Shizuo: very presumptuous of you .... but i need for testing a web app that I am writing
Gh3rssp
Shizuo: thats not nice... ;0
Shizuo
You can just build the HTML to send the POST data you want
If the app is yours
onkara
Shizuo: when you are doing XHR ajax thingies you need to be able to modify headers/cookies/uri to test things like cross domain scripting XSS
Shizuo
No
You just need two HTML files at different domains
With scripts on them
And good code audit practices

morning
my firefox browser just crashed afther ignoring an update ..
now it shows an crash reporter that i don't wana se at all and keep doing that how do i get my work back ?
Gh3rssp
Evening.
Go to about:crashes
paste the first 3-4 things
^Willie^
ehh what about i don't get my browser back ?
i just get that silly crash reporter
rjohnson19
Are you trying to say the crash report dialog won't go away?
^Willie^
indeed
reboot and come back
rjohnson19
Oh, it crashes every time you try to start firefox.
^Willie^
quit and no firefox and my work rescueing my laptop is more important then the update
yes and i dunno why i just open google
also when i try to start it in save mode :S
is this a way to force users to update even when they have no time for it ?
it is on winxp sp3 btw
rjohnson19
Have you been submitting the crash reports? You can get them via the file system. http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+crashes+when+you+open+it#Getting_your_crash_report
^Willie^
before you assume it is my linux firefox xlient
codepoet_
Im using FF3.6 on OSX 10.5.8. Every 5-10 seconds or so, I get the spinning pinwheel of 'hold a moment' for 3 seconds, then I can go back to do whatever I was doing. It doesnt matter what I am doing, I get this pinwheel at this interval
Its bugging the crap out of me -- mid-scroll of a page, it locks for a second
half way through typing something in an input box, it locks for a second
this is a brand new computer, and brand new install of FF 3.6
^Willie^
rjohnson19: sumbit a report will not make firefox tell me what pages i had open nor make firefox work right now
rjohnson19
^Willie^: without a crash report id I have no idea what is wrong.
^Willie^
hmmzz and what about personal info ?
rjohnson19
what personal info?
Try taking a look through these: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+crashes+when+you+open+it#Firefox_does_not_start_in_Safe_Mode
^Willie^
dunno thats why i ask
rjohnson19
Or you could try a clean reinstall
^Willie^
so continue working on ie8 and accept lost my work for this night :S
restore the opened pages is more importend then firefox it self atm
where do firefox store that info on windows ?
and yes i can report this crash i have a crash reporter opened
rjohnson19
sessionstore.js in your profile folder
but its not very human readable
^Willie^
:S
ok
nice
since when is firefox become unstable like this ?
rjohnson19
I already explained that nobody can figure out what went wrong without a crash report id, see http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+crashes+when+you+open+it#Getting_your_crash_report
^Willie^
i have the report done and the code
dunno wtf is wrong now notepad++ crashes :S
i just have no time for this :s
rjohnson19
Did you download any suspect software recently? I am thinking malware.
^Willie^
nope not at all never do
guess some vmware <-> winxp issue again afther some uptime
i guess this is the report
http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/pending/ff7fb321-d00c-418b-b7b3-86b0c2100218
will try to open notepad++ again and look what happend then dunno if the report file did make it crash for some unknown reason
and now notepad++ works :S
Processor Notes WARNING: Json file missing Add-ons

rjohnson19
It looks like you are crashing trying to do a dns lookup, which means some kind of buggy or infected system module.
^Willie^
almosth imposible
i`m not downloading inside that vmware
last thing i did install... zend studio, netbeans, eclips
and clamav 3 months ago
hijackthis is running....
anamal
why is browser.taskbar.previews.enable set to false by default on win7
rjohnson19
You are crashing in a windows system dll, mswsock.dll, trying to do a hostname lookup. Looks like theres not much information on that crash otherwise though :/
^Willie^
last option is reboot the vmware guest..
ie8 have no issues
so mswsock must work else it did crash ie8 ;)
shottung down
o=u and getting coffee what i whas planning to do before the crash :S
and starting the vm
rjohnson19
anamal: On 3.6? Its pretty buggy as I recall. Let me give it a try...
anamal
rjohnson19: yup 3.6
rjohnson19
For me it doesn't seem to actually work. The feature basically didn't make it for 3.6, had to be cut.
anamal
its working for me on win7 rc, albeit with a 1 sec pause (spinning circle) before the tab shows thumbnail
^Willie^
and it starts :S
rjohnson19: first thing it show me now afther reboot windows ... do i wana update my firefox theme :S
i did reject that before it crashed
rjohnson19
^Willie^: well that was simple :) I blame vmware.
^Willie^
rjohnson19: no i blame firefox other app`s where able to use the dll ;)
like i said ie8 msnmessenger and other tools like vnc where still working
rjohnson19
I wasn't serious, I don't care and don't want to argue about it....
^Willie^
they also need the sock.dll ;)
i do care since it delay my focus and work
guess many people do know about adhd and focus issues
thats why i dislike it
Haze_
Mozilla kicks ass!
Gh3rssp

Gh3rssp

Hi Spudnick

ElllisD

ozzzy

ElllisD

ozzzy
oh well.. bedtime
Balsaq
when i turned on my computer a FF window popped up and say javaconsole 6.0.18 has been installed, and is offerning me the chance to disable it?
gavin
yeah, java tends to do that
Balsaq
is this becasue earlier today i installed sun open office
gavin
(install addons for you that you don't particularly want)
yes
you can disable it if you'd like, it's not particularly useful to most people
also doesn't really hurt to just leave it
Balsaq
so i dont need it correct..i mean i have java..at least i know its in ie8?
or is this java specifically for ff or openoffice?
gavin
the addon itself isn't useful or needed
Balsaq
are multiple javas ok on the same HD?
gavin
it's separate from java the plugin
yes, you can have multiple runtimes installed
Balsaq
with no downside?
so for what purpose would i use this one?
gavin
what do you mean?
you need the java runtime installed for openoffice to work
you need the java plugin installed to see java applets in firefox
Balsaq
what are java applets?
gavin
they're programs written in Java, meant to be used on the web
embedded into websites to produce extra functionality
Balsaq
maybe it will make youtube work as well as openoffice?
gavin
no, youtube doesn't use java
openoffice uses java, but it uses the runtime, not the plugin
Balsaq
so is this the runtime
oh is see its a console not runtime so that is why you say i dont need it
gavin
the openoffice installer installs three things: the runtime, the plugin, the addon
Balsaq
right?
gavin
the addon is pretty useless, unless you're ebugging java apps
openoffice depends on the runtime
java applets on the web depend on the plugin
Balsaq
so i ditch the java console 6 0 18
