Funcod
id like to get results for "-moz-opacity"
purpzey
kbrosnan: Ok.
kbrosnan
Funcod: http://bit.ly/beA16D
every firefox, core and toolkit bug mentioning -moz-opacity
Funcod
thx yours is working
was loading endlessly on my side
kbrosnan
it will take some time for the query to run, it is very general and is going through about 300,000 bugs
vishku
is there a firefox add on that could log all the events in a connection?
         

Funcod
httpfox maybe?
vishku
checking
kbrosnan
vishku: live http headers?
vishku
yeah.. httpfox is great.. logs everything.. but do you have other suggestions?
Pupeno
Is there a way to make firefox fix the URLs in the CSS when saving a web site?
judgen_
Anyone know of a add-on for firefox that can be used to interchange tags in sites you visit with others? Like for instance if i want to disable all <VIDEO> tags.

hey, all!
Hey, I'm using firefox 3.0.16 (Centos5.4) with previous versions of firefox, I could edit preferences, and tell it that 'middle mouse' was for a free scroll, or similar. How can I do that with this version?
never mind, found it! general.autoscroll -> true
         

SoPy
can i use a ipv6 proxy in ff ?

Hello...
How do i prevent Firefox from using GTK+ theme? (Firefox 3.6 on Karmic Koala 64bit)
Cork
b2bwild: just install a theme you like
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search?q=&appid=1&tag=&atype=2&pid=5&lup=&sort=&lver=3.6&pp=20
b2bwild
Yes I did that already, but address bar selection still looks like GTK+
Cork
uh... that doens't sound right...
have you tested with anothe theme?
b2bwild
i tried 4 to 5 themes
any solution
freakynl
hi, is it possible to hide the menu (ie file, edit, view, etc) and only make it visible when pressing alt or something? Or perhaps put it under 1 button on the address bar?
mzz
freakynl: former: probably. Latter: search amo for "compact menu" iirc
meh
freakynl: "tiny menu" actually.
freakynl
mzz: thx
mzz: doesn't work (linux).. it makes the menu nicely under one button, but am unable to move it to the address bar, i drag other stuff to the menu bar tho' :/
mzz
freakynl: yeah, that's what I do.
freakynl: I just move everything from the address bar to the menu bar and turn off the address bar.
freakynl
mzz: heh duh... :) found another one, not sure how it solves it, but works instantly, called compact menu 2, thx :)
now i just need to get the menu's to appear in theme colors... having a dark theme with light menu's just looks stupid :D
do you happen to know of an addon that can pass invalid certs in one click (sort of like IE)? I'm very much aware of how certificates work and have to configure many appliances a day, clicking 3-4 times on everyone of them just to pass the certificate is a bit much.... only addons I found disabled the warning completely which is a bit too much
Cork
800x600, i don't think thats THAT big... >_>
wops wrong channel :s
b2bwild
got address bar look fixed...
now it doesn't mess with gtk+
JodaX
yi noticed firefox switched to socks4A from socks4 in firefox 3.6
well, fu*k you developers, fu*k you
syrius
how do I add the ability to have firefox run certain commands when it detects flv or mp4?
I noticed that this xchat script used about:config entry
to associated xdcc:// with xchat
how could I setup a script so that it associates flv with certain commands to be run
JodaX
i doubt it acomplishes what you want to be done, but in the firefox settings you can specify an action for a filetype
kbrosnan
syrius: that is using a protocol hander which is not present in most video media
syrius
I use this program to watch flash content
it just needs to url of the flash site to play it
how could I setup firefox to run python watchvideo_cli.py url(example youtube.com)
when it detects flash
kbrosnan
would not be trivial, might be something extension related you could do
syrius
the program finds the flv from the link then plays it in totem
JodaX
syrius, flv is embed in swf files, which are handled by the flash plugin, firefox has little control there
syrius
yes I know that flash is handled by the flash plugin
JodaX
flv is not flash
syrius
but there is plugins to handle flash without adobe flash
JodaX
flv is raw flash video
swf is flash, it loads the flv
syrius
well it is part of adobe flash
JodaX
firefox doesn't neccessarily have the url to the flv
it doesn't see the flv at all
syrius
yes I know that
the program I use finds that
JodaX
yes
syrius
no
I mean the program I use finds the flv file
then plays it in totem
JodaX
there is no mechanism by which firefox can detect if your program can find the flv file on the page
syrius
no
JodaX
yes
syrius
I want it to run certain commands on flash based sites that have video JodaX
JodaX
well, i doubt you'd want to override your default handler for flash files
syrius
could I associate certain addresses to be launched to certain commands JodaX
I don't want to use proprietary flash JodaX
adobe flash will not be installed
JodaX
well, then go talk to the devel of the flash you want to use
hmm
syrius
all I want to know is how I can do this in firefox
JodaX
i don't think there is a way to do what you want
well, short of writing your own plugin that is
syrius
it is a pain to have to copy and paste urls
JodaX
check if there is a plugin for it already tho
there might be one
syrius
:/
brb
kbrosnan
syrius: like i sad nothing trivial, in theory you could write your own extension to parse pages for flash plugin contnet and do something
JodaX: afik firefox does not implement socks, it uses whatever system specified socks is present and defined by the os.
JodaX
kbrosnan, whut
kbrosnan, that makes no sense
kbrosnan, it'll be a socks client
syrius
kbrosnan, could you point me to some links how an introduction to making extensions
kbrosnan
developer.mozilla.org
see the developing add-ons section
syrius
hmm
is it hard to make extensions?
I have compiled software many times on gnu/linux and I write scripts in batch
kbrosnan
i have no idea what your skillset is. thus i can't say.
syrius
well I just said some of it
mzz
it's not so much hard as different
syrius
how hard is it from compiling on linux?
kbrosnan
not really the same
syrius
I see
is it gui or command line?
kbrosnan
it is code writing, in javascript and xul mainly
marienz
I don't think there's a purely gui way to write an extension that's actually useful.
syrius
hmm
I don't know javascript
but for what I am wanting it to do
it will probably not be to hard to do
would I do extentions or plugins? kbrosnan
looks like an extension
kbrosnan
extension
syrius
hmm
will have to collaborate with the dev of the program
would like to see some added features
then I could add the to the extension to use mp4 or flv if the site has a choice
kbrosnan
that seems quite unlikely
syrius
why is that kbrosnan ?
I personally know the programmer
kbrosnan, ?
kbrosnan
i thought you ment Firefox
JodaX
syrius, setting a flv handler in firefox won't help
syrius, as flash is whats handling the flv
firefox only passes the swf to flash

hi, looking for some help with some JS midas commands in Firefox and encoding, specifically InsertHtml
Kovensky
http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/index.html <-- why does firefox insist on displaying the Jargon File in ISO-8859-1?
all the pages start with <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
http://catb.org/~esr/writings/taoup/html/preface.html <-- this OTOH is displayed as UTF-8, but the XML header says: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="no"?>
using 20100221043554 nightly
but happens for as long as I can remember
kbrosnan
server encoding takes presidence, assuming that is the issue
yep Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
Kovensky
any way to change the precedence order? and is there any particular reason for why it prefers server encoding?
it seems logical to me that the encoding specified in the document itself should take precedence, but maybe there's a problem with that that I can't think of
kbrosnan
rfc's define this behavior
Kovensky
I see

Afternoon... is anyone in here?

Hello. How can I set Firefox to not load unencrypted data on a mixed encrypted/non-encrypted website?

rgubler
hello, i am having difficulty getting the firefox gui to display over a remote X session, and a no machine session. when i run firefox on the commandline it appears to start correctly (no errors), but the window doesn't display. i thought it could be that firefox is displaying locally, on the machine itself. i tried killing all firefox instances on the machine, and restarting firefox from the remote X session; no luck... i tried starting firefox in the follo
kbrosnan
you'll need -no-remote
rgubler
kbrosnan: i've tried that. it doesn't appear to affect any change
kbrosnan
rgubler: firefox -no-remote -P?
rgubler
kbrosnan: hm, i am trying some variation of that now.. i tried firefox -CreateProfile NoMachine... it just hangs.. i killed it.. there was no modifications made to ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini
kbrosnan: in profiles.ini i spotted [Profile0].. i ran firefox -no-remote -P Profile0, but no firefox gui displays :(
kbrosnan: also firefox -no-remote -ProfileManager doesn't appear to work / display
rbraupp
Firefox does not respond after removing and re installing.

1.5.6 and it is really buggy... uses half of my ram (I have 1GB), and sometimes 90% or more of my cpu.
And it crashes.
Is that normal?
kbrosnan
belikeyeshua: 1.5.x is no longer supported.
belikeyeshua
Oops... my fault
Its 3.5.6
hno
Hi, my Firefox has got the bad habit of doing "searches" of unknown domain names. Any idea how I can disable that?
