hey would ahey all
hey all
RedNifre
does the firefox version of opera link sync open tabs? Or also only the bookmarks?
'cause I'm considering switching to firefox...
unknowndomain
Would someone here please take a look at a page for me to see if they are able to reproduce a strange rendering issue I am getting in Firefox for Mac
RedNifre
what's synced and what isn't?
unknowndomain
http://forum.gdnm.org/forum/banter when loaded normally looks fine but if loaded from another tab, and allowed to load in the background has a weird html error
mzz
RedNifre: if you're referring to weave sync: it allows you to open tabs opened in another browser via the history menu (there's a submenu there for tabs opened on other systems)
RedNifre
what about special plugin stuff, like speed dial?
is that synced, too?
Or would each plugin need to be adapted?
mzz
RedNifre: pretty sure the extension needs to opt in to that
RedNifre: I haven't looked into that yet
RedNifre
Thanks for the insight. I guess Firefox isn't for me, yet. But I'm impressed how fast it is getting better.
I guess I'll check it again in a year.
         

mzz
RedNifre: err, it *might* already be opting in
RedNifre: you'd have to check, or find someone else who has
RedNifre
No thanks, I will only switch to firefox when it is actually superior to opera. At the moment it seems that they are on equal footing, when I invest times to hunt down all the plugins needed to duplicate Opera's features. But since I would not gain anything from it (yet) I'll pass for now.

Hey guys
I'm using firefox in arch linux, and google maps isn't working for me. It loads the location I want, but just says "loading..." and does nothing if I try moving it. It works perfectly in epiphany (another browser)
Any idea why?

what happens to downloads if i have to restart ff?
vede
So, uh, I have an interesting problem.
Every morning, around 04:40, Firefox runs my computer out of memory.
I spent the last few days trying to figure out a mysterious night-time crash, and every morning, in my terminal, I have scores of http daemons launched, then everything goes out with error number 11, then Firefox goes out the same way.
KDE (or any other window manager or desktop environment) crashes and I wake up to a terminal a few hours later.
caution
something similar happens to my friend
have you tried running it in safe mode (without addons)
vede
Hm, no, but I don't have any addons anyway.
caution
what is open in firefox overnight?
vede
I'm not really entirely sure.
Bleh. 05:10 and I'm still up.

I've set extensions.checkCompatibility.3.7a to false and can now see the enable button but it doesn't do anything. any idea?
ed-209
is there some way I can get firefox to stop putting up a warning dialog box every time I surf to msdn.microsoft.com?
and also I'm trying to figure out a way for downloads to default to 'save' instead of 'open'
rjohnson19
ed-209: what warning dialog? what does it say?
ed-209
give me a sec
I'm almost done a large download
and I can only get the dialog box on a fresh browser
downloading VS2010 Pro RC1 =)
perhaps noscript or something is throwing it up
rjohnson19
Yeah, I don't see anything when I go to msdn :)
ed-209
its kind of frustrating, its the only page I've ever seen where I get this
3 mins left on download :x
and now I'm not getting it
rjohnson19: I'll take a screenshot next time I see it
rjohnson19
ok.

when i open a new window (not a tab) the cpu load peeks and 2 seconds later the window shows up. any idea how to fix that?
Qb_Master
hah so I just ran a sunspider test on both firefox 3.6 and IE6
confusious
and ?
Qb_Master
oh
confusious
i curious
Qb_Master
2099.2ms (Firefox 3.6), 42224.6ms (IE6)
confusious
hmmmm.now if'n i only knew what that really meant.heh,heh.sorry i asked !
what's a sunspider test ?
Qb_Master
it's a test to show how fast a browser parses javascript
mzz
well, comparing to IE6 really isn't interesting
confusious
so,it seems ff is just a bit faster,huh ?
Qb_Master
lol just a bit
mzz: it's an interesting comparison since it shows how much faster javascript is parsed nowadays compared to back in the IE6 days
mzz
not so much parsed as executed, but yeah
Qb_Master
well yea
I don't have IE7/8 so I can't compare those tho
someone else can http://www2.webkit.org/perf/sunspider-0.9/sunspider.html
wonder how opera stands against it too
can't test that either tho cause I uninstalled that :/
