Spudnick

Haze_

kbrosnan

scummos: then again maybe http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.9.2/search?string=opengl
scummos
nsCanvasRenderingContextGL.h
that sounds like opengl ^^
Spudnick, kbrosnan: okay, thanks. but it will probably come within the next few versions, won't it?
Spudnick
wha?

scummos
what? :)

Are BNC's allowed on this channel?
Peng
Unless I'm misunderstanding something, isn't banning bouncers completely silly?
kbrosnan
if you mean to link this channel with another server, no
Peng
Ah, maybe I am. :D
kbrosnan
if you use it for personal use there is not much that one could tell
Peng
Well, except for admitting it... :D
BjornR1989
Ok.
Peng
Of course, this channel's policies don't override any bizarre rules Freenode may or may not have.
BjornR1989
Ok, thanks for answering my offtopic question Peng and kbrosnan.

hey people - can anyone tell me why my Xbox Live Gamercard looks terrible in Firefox for Linux? It looks fine in Chrome on Linux, Chrome on Windows, IE 8 on Windows and even Firefox on Windows, but Firefox on Linux makes it look awful!
oops... the URL is http://www.mongeese.co.uk/xbox/
         

Spudnick
I fixed my name!
sheeeesh
fishsponge
for what it's worth, the gamercard looks fine in Konqueror on Linux too.
Spudnick
gtg off to school!
fishsponge
so just Firefox 3.5.7 on Linux!
anyone got any ideas?#
Froolap
Yeah, I got an idea.
I was thinking of going downtown and opening a hotdog stand.
fishsponge

Hi. If I once clicked "never for this site" when first entering a password, how do I reset that option, so I can save my password?

Hello all. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 and Firefox 3.5. After installing ubuntu updates involving firefox also, i had a crash. After rebooting, firefox gives me a "bus error" when i launch. Bug report on that shows its due to local system corruption; which could be true as it just crashed after installing the updates and borked things up.
aiko_
mzz: ah, thanks
solid999
my question: how do i deal with this. i tried reinstalling firefox many times and its other named packges. removing ~/.mozilla. don't know much else i can try
marienz
solid999: I'm assuming you reinstalled xulrunner, not just firefox itself?
solid999
marienz: yes, but it could be some other dependency that's borked; i don't know how to recursively rebuild dependencies
marienz
(Action) forgot what normally caused "Bus error"
solid999: got gdb and a bit of time?
pranav
I have got cookies from IE 6, now I have forgotten my password and want to login to fb account.. is this possible ?
solid999
marienz: i never used gdb before. let my try one synaptic thing. may have just found something interesting :)
kbrosnan
reinstall dbus? would be my guess.
solid999
And It Runs Again! okay i found out how to recursively rebuild deps, and there were some.. one of them must have been borked..
marienz: thanks for your offer though. but my issue is resolved. =)
marienz
fishy.
kbrosnan
pranav: if you import ie6's cookies and your fb cookies had your password saved maybe
file > import

Is that spam? Please don't spam.
Also, the Mozilla channels on Freenode are an outpost. There are already at least two German channels on irc.mozilla.org.

Why is Firebug suddenly not showing me my styles? Unable to show styles.<br><br>Please read <a href="
Never mind. Ubuntu upgraded FF and didn't restart it. Sigh.
Gartral
hi all, having issues with the latest firefos releases not closing cleanly in windows 7
kbrosnan
Gartral: use the ghostery extension?
Gartral
this is a clean installation.. no extensions
Gartral2
sorry, lost connection no, no extensions, this is a clean install of both windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and firefox
gartral
kbrosnan: sorry, lost connection no, no extensions, this is a clean install of both windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and firefox
kbrosnan
gartral: not sure then, i've not see that in my w7 x64 computer. any antivirus or other odd plugins?
gartral
i tolds you clean install.. no plugins.. i close firefox, the windw dies, and the proccess takes up 100% of one thread and over 200 mb ram.. this is not kosher!
kbrosnan
plugins are differnt that extensions and can come from other software you might have installed
gartral
well, like i said, that's doubtful
anyway, ff is in an unusable state as far as im concerened
Gartral
as i was saying, my firefox is in an unusable state...

Hi guys. Running FF on xp. Haven't run the machine for a while. When I fired up FF I saw that I had an update available to 3.5.8 from 3.5.5. Unfortunately, my account is not an administrator on the machine so it errored out. I ran FF as an administrator and re-ran the update which worked. however when I fire up FF as my regular user now, it tries to apply the update again, errors out and then firefox opens fine. How do I stop it from try
Gartral
how do i get ff to close correctly?
mr_clark
nm. I figured it out. I went into the Updates directory and renamed the 0 directory in there and re-ran FF.
Gartral
on ff 3.6 here.. fresh install no plugins, adons or anything.. but firefox will not close cleanly.. it hangs on exit, the process reserves most of 4 gigs of ram and one core.. burning cyles and ram.. how do i restore proper funtionality?
Ecco
rm -rf .firefox or rm -rf .mozilla
Gartral
this is windows 7
Ecco

Gartral

Ecco

Just pay your bills with IE
Gartral

Ecco
Imean if you're in such a rush&
I have no idea
Gartral

Gartral

but i discovered that iam not the only one
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/571350
fx looks a bit funny in the dialogs now, but the size is the same before 3.6
nasty bug for htpc users
Gartral
aqnyone here remember ff 3.0.13?
Ecco
whaddya mean "remember"
Gartral
the more-than-a-myraid set of problems it had
ok.. now im having a firefox/thunderbird issue.. i cant copy text from ff and paste it into thunderbird without it's formatting from firefox.. even with "paste without formatting" it still prints in italic canary yellow.. and breaks the link it's supposed to be injected into
dark
how can I enable a local home page to link to files in file:// ? I can't find it in about:config. I know this is done in name of safety, but it shouldn't be that hard.. (i'm using firefox 3.5.6)
by "local home page" i mean one running at 127.0.0.1
nevermind, i found http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_:_Issues_:_Links_to_Local_Pages_Don't_Work

Is there a linux equivalent to the fireshot plugin for firefox?
