Well, maybe you can help me Peng
I want the option "Apply these restrictions to whitelisted sites too" to NOT apply for two websites. Facebook and Startpage.com
But for everything else
How can I accomplish this?
Peng
Sorry, I do not know anything about NoScript.

Is there a way to disable stealing focus all together? I'm really sick of sites putting me back in the username field when I'm typing my password, or google stealing focus from the address bar (why is that even possible) when I just start it up and am typing in a URL. I realize I can disable javascript, I also realize I can use a different start page, or a local version without the focus stealing, but this is a general annoyance and I'm a
bit shocked there's no obvious option for it
Error403
I think I know what you mean
Go to Tools -> Options
Go to "Content" and then hit the "Advanced" button ( third from the top )
Could that help?
poutine, anything?
poutine
no.
I have everything unchecked in there, and there's nothing even the least bit related to focus
I see descriptions of this problem all around the internets, but no acceptable solutions: http://ask.metafilter.com/31076/Looking-for-a-Firefox-fix-for-entering-URL-on-startup , http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=597717 , http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/99609816/m/237008524931

JodaX
propably an issue with your computer, what os ?
hotwings
win7 64bit
however, it worked without trouble for a couple weeks.. this behavior only just started
nothing changed on the system.. no updates, no installs, no anything
JodaX
is the cpu on max ?
hotwings
i didnt think to check the cpu
one sec
nope, not even close.. cpu @ 1-3%, ram at 30%.. q9550 quad core cpu, 6GB ram
n3rd
i'm trying to install customizable bespin, /?action=install/install is not responding, any suggestions ?
JodaX
hotwings, i mean while it locks up ?
hotwings, does it happen every time ?
hotwings
it happens every time, and those are the numbers when its "not responding"
JodaX
no plugins no addons ?
hotwings
correct
ff 3.6 bt
btw
JodaX
hotwings, possibly one of your security products, or something caused by the lack of those
hotwings
i havent installed any security products. again, this problem only just started occuring.. everything has been fine for a couple week (since i installed the os)
i suspect something changed in gmails inbox that firefox doesnt play nice with considering nothing about the system has changed
JodaX
hotwings, i am fairly certain that more people would complain if the problem would lie in firefox
hotwings
maybe they have, i havent checked any forums/report logs
i didnt even come here until earlier today
JodaX
hotwings, i would have suggested installing a 64bit build to weed out malware as a reason, but there don't seem to be any
SirTopHat
how can I take down a javascript popup that's on an infinite loop without needing to re-open all of my pages individually
Peng
SirTopHat: Mash Escape and X out of the tab, or something. Dunno.
JodaX
SirTopHat, there is some way to do it with quick clicking and holding a key combination; but there are add-ons that let you kill the checkboxes
SirTopHat
ok
I solved it anyway
closed firefox with task manager, renamed the webpage from SSH
         

Peng
JodaX: There are?!
JodaX
yes, i came here raging about that problem some days ago and someone told me; sad that its not in ff by default like in opera

i am trying to find a copy of the Netscape Communicator 4.0 source code and have been unable to
anybody have any idea where it is?
should be hosted somewhere in mozilla's site
the oldest i can find is on the dev ftp which is the first version of mozilla
but no pre-mozilla code

i want XHR to GET an .xml file and return the contents AFTER its .xsl transformation is applied. (e.g. the .xsl is specified at the top of the .xml doc, and browsing to it in firefox renders it post-transformation, but XHR just returns the raw .xml)
is this a limitation of the XHR object?

hi
if I use firefox and I can't go to https:// sites, what should I do? It says it cannot connect
PoppaVic
Lo'.. Simple question: How the heck can I tell Firefox to start up with 1 (one) Window with 1 (one) tab, when it's not running, but I click a link?

hi guys
anybody is experiencing a strange tab-related problem?
quite often I am simply *unable to switch* between the tabs

why does firefox fail to print a web page when used in MAC?
sybariten
Hey
whats that technique called when you have custom commands you type in the adress bar of firefox?
Like someone told me he translates right there without going to google first.... or image search.... welll, not explicitly going to google
but the browser does, eventually

sybariten: sybariten http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Smart+keywords?bl=n&s=keywords&as=q
(I think you mean that, at least)
sybariten
lemme see...
yeah, that should be it mzz
i remember im using it for image search though..., but maybe it works

PoppaVic
OK, it took all day, but I found The Answer..
For those with osx+xchat, the URL-event you want to execute is: '/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -new-tab %s'
That's it.. Share on.

ciccio0576: is it a windows network share / samba?

ciccio0576

Cork
ciccio0576: what os are you running?
ciccio0576
partedmagic
Cork

ciccio0576

Cork
i 'm not familiar with what gui parted has
but you will have to connect it to your system then you can open it through the normal path

"Accessing Network Shares"
ciccio0576
yes
Cork
when you have mounted the share like ex. /mnt/windows you can point firefox to /mnt/windows
and it will work
ciccio0576
try
root@PartedMagic:~# mkdir -p /mnt/windows

err, having to point firefox at a cifs mount seems a bit weird
are you sure that's what you have to do?
ciccio0576
root@PartedMagic:~# mount -v //192.168.1.1\a /mnt/windows
mount: no type was given - I'll assume cifs because of the // prefix

are you sure what's on that cifs mount is html?

mzz: yeah, ie is a massive all in one beast

ok firefox need an upgrade

By any chance, does anyone know the cause of firebug suddenly refusing to cooperate (not showing errors in console, or net/ajax requests, etc)?
It's just this has happened on two PCs now.
For example, it no longer tracks XHRRequests in console despite being marked to do so
mzz
no idea, but irc.mozilla.org might have someone who knows, or something like #html on this network might

hi, guys. how can i access firefox's bookmarks, not from within the broswer but with a script?
daniel______
hi, how can you change the standard language into german (thunderbird 3.0.1 Open Suse, translations installed)
kbrosnan
distros tend to do their own things for localization
bahamas
hi, guys. how can i access firefox's bookmarks, not from within the broswer but with a script?
kbrosnan
you won't be able to if firefox is running
bahamas
kbrosnan: well, and if firefox isn't running, where can i find the bookmarks?
kbrosnan
they are stored as part of the file places.sqlite
daniel______
okay, i found a fix... another question: how can i use reply to list with thunderbird?
its grayed out?
kbrosnan
not sure, #thunderbird is on irc.mozilla.org
