how are the passwords in Firefox encrypted if I set a master pass?
rjohnson19
Iceman_B: 3DES in CBC mode, the stronger your master password, the better.

hi
I'm on dial up. can firefox use cache when opening websites to load faster?
Peng
Firefox _does_ cache things, some.
Cann0n
can i make it do more?
Peng
You could install some sort of local caching proxy (Squid?) if you want more extensive caching.
Cann0n
k
so, this squid daemon is easy to setup?
         

kbrosnan
depends on your skills
Cann0n
i'm lazy. i wont lie.
i promise i could get it to work, but i'm just lazy
yeah, ok... is there a howto to get squid installed and setup for FF?
jrtayloriv
How can I stay logged in to two separate accounts on the same site (Wikipedia or Gmail for instance)?
Is there an extension that lets me do this?
Cann0n
shouldnt have a problem doing it
jrtayloriv
Basically, I want to be able to have two of my Wikipedia accounts open at the same time, instead of having to login/logout each time I want to switch. I'd like it if it could somehow keep me logged in to both accounts ...
Cann0n
jrtayloriv: check your security settings.
i can login on my wiki account and my gmail account same time
jrtayloriv
Cann0n, No, I mean 2 Wikipedia accounts at the same time or 2 gmail accounts at same time -- sorry for not being clear
Cann0n
eh, i doubt you can do that without running two instances of FF

http://chinese.dsturgeon.net/text.pl?node=58483&if=en is a page to test for the correct display of chinese fonts. does anyone have all four charachters on the "traditional chinese" line display properly, and if so, what fonts are installed on your computer?
the charachters appear to be unicode
faron
hello ?? hey there xangua
xangua
hi
andy_t_roo
in firefox some chinese phrases are missing charachtes "ŠÖ‰(êÌb" doesn't display the 5th and 2nd last charachters.
but they all show here in pidgin
how do i set the fonts correctly?
kbrosnan
looks ok on Windows 7 for me
os?
cobra-the-joker
Hey there guys ...... can i import my settings ( themes , bookmarks , history , ... ) from one linux distribution to another ?
kbrosnan
backup ~/.mozilla
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Backing+up+your+information for details
cobra-the-joker
kbrosnan , ok ..ty
andy_t_roo
kbrosnan: i'm on win xp
kbrosnan
andy_t_roo: in the address bar paste data:text/html,<html><head><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/><title>asian text test</title><p>ŠÖ‰(êÌb</p>
does that render the text correctly?
version of firefox too?
andy_t_roo
no - the 5th and 2nd last charachters are blank (3.6)
latest stable
         

kbrosnan
andy_t_roo: have you installed the asain font support for the os? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Multilingual_support_%28East_Asian%29
andy_t_roo
kbrosnan: kbrosnani have, all that page but 2 of the characters in the Vietnamese section display.
http://chinese.dsturgeon.net/text.pl?node=58483&if=en
every charachter except the third one on the top row display
kbrosnan
i would guess that the font is deficient, lacking those characters. any chance ie has the same problem?
andy_t_roo
kbrosnan: iexploer just displays a load of boxes
(ie 8 )
kbrosnan
andy_t_roo: as soon as i installed the hannomH.zip fonts Firefox displayed the page correctly in windows xp
don't have east asian font support installed though
Tecan
does firefox backup all the plugins in the new one ?
in linux mint im trying to remove this annoying spyware in firefox that forces people to use google custom search engine
the uninstall option is grayed out and when i delete my .mozilla folder it keeps comming back with the same plugins
please hellp
aha fixed it
there was an instance of firefox running that was not showing up in any process list
how would i restore a managed search list from an old profile ?
search.sqlite , replacement never worked
markcl
when i fullscreen firefox and autohide toolbars there remains annoying pixel remains of the toolbar on the upper side of the monitor. how do i remove them?
jrtayloriv
I installed a new add-on (FoxyProxy) to Firefox, and when I clicked "Restart" firefox crashed. Now every time I open up firefox and go to the addons menu, it still tells me I need to restart, and crashes every time I try. How do I fix this?
Basically, I can't install or update any addons because of this ...
Peng
I'd probably nuke the extensions.* files in your profile with Friefox closed.
(Not the extensions directory itself, just the extensions.* files. They'll be regenerated, though any extensions you had disabled will be reenabled.)
jrtayloriv
Peng, Will I lose all of my settings (Noscript blocked sites, etc)?
Peng
jrtayloriv: Settings are stored elsewhere.
jrtayloriv
Peng -- OK thank you. I'll try this now.
Peng
jrtayloriv: You could take a backup first, just to be safe. Or just rename the files instead of deleting them.
jrtayloriv
Peng, yep -- will do -- thanks
Peng
I mean, an extension could create an important file and name it "extensions.foo", and it might even be able to jam important data into one of the other files, but why anyone would do such a thing...
jrtayloriv
Peng, I did as you suggested, but it didn't regen the files, and it still asks me to restart, and crashes when I do so. Any other suggestions?
Peng
jrtayloriv: Sounds like you did it to the wrong profile.
jrtayloriv: If not, my only other suggestion would be irc.mozilla.org. /me points.
Hmm.
Maybe installing the extension is hte problem.
jrtayloriv
Peng -- I only have one profile on this computer
Peng
Renaming or deleting extensions/staged-xpis/ might help (or, if you have other pending installs, just the FoxyProxy subdirectory), but I dunno.
jrtayloriv
Peng, Nevermind -- I fixed it. Sorry about the trouble. I was able to undo it from safe mode and restart, and it works fine now. Thanks for your help though
Have a good night
Peng
Oh.
trebor_home
hello. i am trying to figure out, how to tell firefox (linux, ff 3.0) to keep the settings for printing (printout-mode: draft-greyscale). for now i have to set this option everytime i want to print (very annoying).
i already googled for that, but it seems i am not using the right keywords. may someone give me a hint/url/man-page
/
?
llrcombs
OK
hello
I need some help

Is there a plug-in, or just a firefox command I'm not aware of, that will let me duplicate the current tab? Often I'll be browsing and want to open another tab, copy the address from my old tab into the bar, wait for it to load again, then continue. I know I can open a link in a new tab but sometimes I'm dealing with forms or doing other operations that aren't anchor tag-related.
So want I want is something that will open a new tab, and duplicate the page I'm currently looking at. It would be extra awesome if it didn't even need to re-read the page from the server...
rjohnson19
Tabberwocky (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14439) can do that.
jinzougen
Oo. Awesome. Yeah I tried to find one on my own a while ago but didn't have much success. I'll try this.
Ahahah. I love it.
I thanks.

mzbot: O.o
mzbot: you're a bot now?
mzbot
Gh3rssp: reviving an old bot of mine
Gh3rssp
oh
i see
mzbot
Gh3rssp: I'm still me, but I just have to chat to nickserv for a minute to register this nick
Gh3rssp
python?
mzbot
python/twisted, yes
Gh3rssp
cool
is it based on something, or did you write it yourself?
mzbot
just twisted
it's an old framework I'm cleaning up (shrinking, mainly)
(it's not very good, really)
Gh3rssp
oh
what does it do?
mzbot
(Action) wonders why the registration email isn't arriving
oh well, I'll give it a few more minutes
currently nothing interesting
Gh3rssp
oh
mzbot
(I might end up bridging moznet's firebot here though)
Gh3rssp
that would be nice
ask wolf to run another instance with the same factiods
TannerF
i often find myself trying to talk to it

This channel isn't often busy. You should try #firefox on irc.mozilla.org, as the topic says.

hi, i installed firefox 3.6 on my ubuntu 9.10 64bit system and now the firefox window says "namoroka" cause i installed some nightly build before. i deinstalled the nighly build before and removed that repository so i definately have the stable firefox. is there any way to change the "namoroka" back to firefox without having to delete my firefox profile?
xangua
you still are using the nighty build, ho do you 'unstalled' it¿
unistalled*
lun4tic
apt-get remove firefox
the version i have currently has original branding logos when minimized and help-> about says firefox 3.6 but the window caption and in the settings it still says "namoroka"
do you think purge firefox with backuped profile and reinstall will help?
xangua
i think you need to downgrade all firefox packages, not just 'firefox'
lun4tic
"deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/mozillateam/firefox-stable/ubuntu karmic main" is my apt line for firefox that should be the "official one" for the original branding most websites say
ok so purge
damn
profile issue
if i delete my profile and start firefox the branding is ok
so where in the profile is the saved "namoroka" stuff?
because i don't want to loose all login data and passwords and stuff
xangua
mmmm probably in prefs.js on your fx profile
lun4tic
thx
xangua
i think you can change that also from about:config
lun4tic
not found
prefs.js is the same as about:config?
i allready looked there and found nothing
so eitehr it is coded in some weird numbers in about:config or it is somewhere else
i find nothing with namoroka in there
neither about:config nor prefs.js
Zombie
Anmyone here familiar with the "window.navigate is not a function" error?>
lun4tic
hm.. ok the radical way did it :D
profile deleting is best for getting rid of namoroka in the title bar ^^

Are there any good applications of FF 3's location-aware browsing I can try out?
