does anyone know how to disconnect the scroll bars from a theme package, or make it where when I increase text size the scroll bars dont get huge
?

hello, just installed 3.6.0 on my ubuntu, but youtube is mute. any hint?
geri
hi is firefox going to support html5?
sdwilsh
html5 is not a finalized spec
eirich
has anyone experienced lock files consistently not being removed upon closing Firefox?
geri
its in alpha release?
eirich
i mean each and every time, not just occassionally
no it's actually pretty old
geri
because youtube is already uploading a lot of videos with html5
sdwilsh
eirich: networked file system?
         

eirich
sdwilsh: yes. it's mounted over smb
sdwilsh
eirich: that is likely the issue
there are a bunch of random quirks with different settings
my advice is to avoid using smb if possible
eirich
that's unfortunately not an option
we have one system in place that does work (concerning this anyway), but we are trying to replace it with a new one
geri
sdwilsh, youtube is already uploading a lot of videos with html5
sdwilsh
so, there are a few open bugs about smb, which you may be hitting https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=smb
geri: sure, they are using the video tag, which may or may not be in the final html5 spec
geri: and firefox implements this tag, but does not support the codec youtube is using
geri
when will it be sdwilsh ?
mzz
geri: "html5" is a pretty bad way to describe what they're doing. For html5 video the codec used is pretty important.
sdwilsh
indeed
mzz
geri: see http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/roc/archives/2010/01/video_freedom_a.html and its followup (someone else might have a better link)
(suggestions for a better link appreciated, I think I'm throwing that one around too much)
geri
did you test it mzz?
mzz
geri: test what?
geri
html5
sdwilsh
it's kinda hard to test something that isn't fully defined
geri
use chrome
;)
sdwilsh
logic doesn't seem to be working here...
unless, what you are trying to say is that everything chrome does must be html5
Cybersoft
is there a support channel for sunbird?
jck
hey
i have some weird problem, some javascript doesnt work(like upvoting on reddit) but it works in private browsing...
Cybersoft
ok nvm I'll just use outlook

HiMyNameIsBill
Hello, I was wondering if there was a portable executeable for Windows
I just need something that will run firefox
i dont need to save settings etc
         

headyadmin
hey all, has something changed with the ubiquity command editor? i thought i was able to just type 'command-editor' in the ubiquity prompt to start editing but doesn't seem to be working?
jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj: http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable
jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj
no no
i tried that
t3rk3l
gn8 ihr lieben
headyadmin
jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj: you want a portable executable of ffox that specifically does Not save settings eh?
billbobjoe
Yes, don't as why... I just need firefox to run
headyadmin
billbobjoe: prob some way to tweak the settings of portable firefox, or write a script to clear all settings whenever ffox is opened, always launch in private-browsing-mode, and clear all cache/settings again on quit
billbobjoe
eh...
thanks though
headyadmin
billbobjoe: you could run it from a live-disc linux distro that would leave 0 traces behind, that distro could be installed on thumb drive too if physical portability is needed
billbobjoe
well i wouldnt have enough time to boot into a linux distro
headyadmin, why i need this is in my school
we have sonicwall
its like OpenDNS with everything blocked
and..
they dont block https
so..
they blocked https with IE
so, if i get firefox, i can go to my site over https and tunnel to other sites that are blocked
thus why i need firefox
I need to executeable so that i can save it to my server
and FTP download it
and run it
headyadmin
billbobjoe: ah, hrmm
billbobjoe: why cant you download the portable ffox executable each time, use it & trash it when finished
billbobjoe
Well that's not what you think what link you just gave me
that wants to try and install it on a flash drive
I can't install anything
Or, input a flash drive
I need just something where i can download, and hit run and be on firefox
headyadmin
billbobjoe: ah, you're on Windows, yeah sorry not sure then
billbobjoe
Well i hate windows headyadmin
its just my school
headyadmin
billbobjoe: i hear ya ;)
billbobjoe: sounds like it may be time to bribe your IT guy
billbobjoe
headyadmin, im 13 btw in eighth grade...
like they;re going to listen
Hey! ill give you some GNU software if you make all computers GNU/Linux
lol.. they're going to wtf
headyadmin
billbobjoe: not allowed to plug in thumb drive either?
billbobjoe
Yeah.. headyadmin i was thinking one day of running winpass on a liveCD and hacking the Administrator account
but i may not have time..
headyadmin
billbobjoe: you could check to see if they're doing something simple to whitelist certain computers to have open access, then you could mimic that
billbobjoe
headyadmin, since they dont turn off the computers till the weekend
im am going to install a VNC server
and lookaround till then
headyadmin
billbobjoe: good luck!
billbobjoe
heh.. yeah.

hi
so my problem is now that some add on is freezing my firefox when starting up
Gh3rssp
(Action) scratches his head
told me i was banned from here
JoeSomebody
hello, can febe be used to copy a ff 3.6 profile from xp to ubuntu? can ubuntu even run ff 3.6? :)
Gh3rssp
Yep and Yep.
JoeSomebody
sweet
Gh3rssp
you'll need it to upload remotely
JoeSomebody
upload remotely? got to redo my ubuntu, maybe next week
not ready just yet
my test today worked fine from xp to xp
Vi0L0
hi, linux x86_64 here, well with 3.6 + nspluginwrapper-flash im getting flickering of every flash content on pages... will it be fixed in next rel of 3.6.x? (its good in 3.7a)
jwm
anyone know what would make a flash file work in one firefox instance for an entire day
then stop
but still work in an identical install on another computer
this is baffling me
I have firebug and I am trying it
it's not even flash though
that is the funny thing
it is a websocket flash that gets loaded
and I get one of those famous reference null object crap messages
god I figured it out
flash 10.0 r02 barfing
upgraded to 10.0 r42
it must of gotten corrupted or something
geez

kbrosnan

Casper

today, yesterday and last week
I need the 31, which is somewhere in the last week... which is alot of sites
kbrosnan
might be an extension that allows for finer grained examination. else any sqlite viewer and the correct sql query
Casper

but checking
kbrosnan
site:addons.mozilla.org foo works on most search engines
ablmf
How to make firefox start in full screen mode?
Casper
kbrosnan: I'm surprised that it worked! I was expecting to find nothing (history... of change?)
thanks
ablmf: tried F11 ?
kbrosnan
Can't start firefox in fullscreen by default, i think there are extensions that allow for this.
fullerscreen?
ablmf
I don't want use firefox in full screen mode
I want it start in full screen mode
I am writing a user interface for a so-called "embeded system"
I write a web app for it.
And my boss want hide firefox so the user won't know it's really a web page
kbrosnan
running on a desktop? do you only need to set up a couple?
ablmf
running on a standard CentOS 5.2
kbrosnan
if this is only a few setups, i would suggest the extension route
ablmf
kbrosnan: thx, I found an extension for that, but I don't know how to install it by command line

wassup?
w3rd_
hey.. yesterday i was talking with you about some ie bugs and browser extension stuff...
Cork
ya, i remember
w3rd_
i was going through a couple.... zoom and handle something..
and it appears that i dont get the concept or something..
Cork
handle?
w3rd_
er... lemmie see..
haslayout
sorry..
Cork
ah
w3rd_
couldnt remember
Cork
:)
w3rd_
was wondering... would you mind providing your expertise one more time?
Cork
shoot
w3rd_
im trying to position this element.. tis working fine in all browser other than safari / ie
http://www.freedom-o-speech.com/about.php
if you look in the bottom left, you will see the slider
my code is jacked to position it...
but either way, ie / safari dont wont to reconize my horrible positioning at all.. in either css or just <center> tags
i was wondering as well are there css extensions for ie?? you may have mentioned this, but i couldnt recall if you were also referring to ie
Cork
w3rd_: center doesn't really exist when you do float :)
w3rd_
er..
lemmie see...
er.. so then i have confilicting selector / html
do you have to use one or the other?
Cork
w3rd_: skip the center tag (its depricated after all)
w3rd_: then in #slider-pos set position: relative
and overflow: hidden
and zoom: 0
should be all you need
w3rd_
well.. i each of those stated...
well.. before i up'ed the files
let me check local again..
Cork: do you specify zoom like any other selector... eg #somdiv {zoom: 0;}??
Cork
ya
w3rd_
kk
dude you are a flippin genious bro
Cork
just experience :)
w3rd_
well, that is definately working in your favour
Cork
i've been developing pages that have to work in ie for years, it would be bad if i didn't learn anything :D
w3rd_
yah... freakin learning real quick to hate ie
Cork
