Is there any option in firefox that says "Do not ever annoy me with the update page"?
alus
JoWie: not from my own machine - on user's machines in the wild
JoWie: I want to collect data when a javascript error occurs for one of my users, and send that in
I already have such a reporting mechanism plugged in to window.onerror, but it is not very informative

I updated the video drivers and so far haven't seen one of the errors.
This one still happens, when viewing YouTube videos, and using ajax-heavy sites: http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-ece3e7c0-6377-440e-a4af-958ba2100201

hi
I know this channel isn't about thunderbird, but the thunderbird channel is nearly empty: why are thunderbirds event alerts so unnoticeable? I only heard a quiet sound which could be an irc notification etc, I didn't know where it came from. I want a popup.
rjohnson19
Are you talking about calendar (Lightning) events? There is supposed to be a popup that lets you snooze the reminder or dismiss it..
Mango
Heh, it just crashed again. If anyone has any ideas about http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-ece3e7c0-6377-440e-a4af-958ba2100201 I would appreciate it.

is it possible to remove individual search terms from firefox's database?
or rather "saved form and search history"
oh point at it and click shift-delete.
yo2boy

K3rmit

ibolmo
i've heard that there used to be mac os x ppc specific binaries of FFx
wondering if anyone is familiar if the binary in getfirefox.com for macs is slower/faster than if i built my own for this ppc mac
kbrosnan
ibolmo: the build at mozilla.org is a universial binary
ibolmo
so that should work with intel or ppc, i believe
wondering if a ppc specific build will have improvements
kbrosnan
from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_binary sounds like no
it has two copies of the progam
ibolmo
i see
thanks, saved me from a lot of trouble ;)

how do i change a .manifest file so that it will allow new versions of firefox
w3rd_
hey guys.. back with a different issue.. not sure where to point.. basically i have loaded the same files for a site to 2 differnt domains and an adobe flash plugin will not load in ff, only ff
works fine in safari, works fine in ie
and it works fine on any all domains other than the primary?
http://tek-op.com
this is the primary domain.. if you see on this page.. the adobe plugin just hangs.
http://www.freedom-o-speech.com
this is the test / sandbox...
firebug is resporting the css selector visibility is set to hidden... im not sure what is triggering this? doesnt make any sense?
ibolmo
hey kbrosnan you wouldn't happen to know if there's a keyboard shortcut for the lozenge (in mac os x) button?
kbrosnan
w3rd_: are the images for the flash file seperate?
ibolmo: i don't
w3rd_
meaning are they indivdual image files? in this case yes
kbrosnan
do you have hotlink protection?
w3rd_
not that i know of..
havent configured anything in htaccss
i even uploaded the files to another domain just to check if there was something i was missing
kbrosnan
i've seen something similar where firefox flash does not send referers breaking hotlink proteciton
w3rd_
works fine..
oh...
solrize
anyone know of some bad interaction between firebug and adblock+ ? my browser (3.5.6) crashes when i turn on the firebug panels
init[1]
where can i ask questions realated to thunderbird?
harth
init[1]: #thunderbird at irc.mozilla.org
aoeu
where can i download flash player 9 final for linux? the only one i can find is version 10, and it has this bug where the video turns pink. i want the final version of 9 because it has hardware acceleration like 10.
init[1]
harth: ah thank you :)
w3rd_
hey guys
kbrosnan: are you still around?
earlier you mentioning something about hotlinking people using firefox having issues?
turns out that is exactly what was going on with my site?
alus
I'm curious about better alternatives to window.onerror, are there any?

Hi there, got a problem when sending emails via email web clients, with pdf attachments for example. for some reason, if the recipient is on exchange server 2007 or similar then it bounces back, with "#554 5.6.0 STOREDRV.Deliver; Corrupt message content ##" from what ive read, you have to change the mime type when sending in firefox, bit unsure how to do this?
Hail_Spacecake
do firefx 3.6 personae get permanantly saved to your disk?
or is the data always loaded from the site?
Raven737
Hello?
Cork
Hail_Spacecake: its saved in your profile
Hail_Spacecake
is there a list somewhere of the ones you have saved?
the persona extensino seems to only list your favorites and recent ones
not ones that you have saved
Cork
Hail_Spacecake: its listed in tools > addons > themes
Hail_Spacecake
ah
thanks!
sybariten
Probable reasons why i dont get historyu saved?
I.e. i type a URL, go there, close the tab and when i open a new tab, the URL is not remembered
Cork
sybariten: tools > options > privacy > firefox will :
what does it say there?
sybariten
Cork: one sec
Cork: damn... its in swedish... icon with a doorknob?

I had ff 3.5.0 stable version. Enthused by its stability, I ventured to install 3.6.2pre.. I did this after I included lines deb-src and deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu - main in my ubuntu hardy repo. Later, I discovered that I could neither cope up with bugs nor be useful in making tests since already 3.6.0 stable version is out. Now I want to revert to the...
...stable ver. 3.6.0 or 3.7.0. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling without efffect. I am installing only 3.6.2! HELP!
mzz
ksbalaji: you're really better off asking about this on a ubuntu support forum, but afaik you should be able to remove the entry from sources.list, apt-get update, and apt-get install xulrunner firefox
it's possible that won't downgrade, in which case I'm not sure exactly what command you need to run. You should ask some ubuntu support channel then, since I really doubt this situation is firefox-specific
[reed]
mzz: that's #ubuntu-mozillateam, fyi
mzz
[reed]: I figured something like #ubuntu would suffice for this, but perhaps I'm overlooking something.
kpoman
hello ! dudes do someone know where is the thunderbird channel ?
or why this one on freenode is so empty ?
ksbalaji
is FF 3.7.0 a stable version to be installed from ubuntu reposit? - not beta or pre?!
Myrth
ff3.6, 9 tabs, left overnight - 1.1GB private bytes, 1.4GB VM.... i thought memory leaks were fixed...

Hey!
Looks like Firefox3.6 opens new tabs right after the current tab
but I want them after the last tab
like it has been in all previous versions
is it possible to get the old behaviour back?
oh, looks like I found the right option:
browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent
thanks anyway!

hi
i recently became aware, that lots of sites link to popular community sites via "digg this", "facebook that" etc buttons. Often those buttons are loaded directly from the site in question, which in turn is able to collect information about the user's browsing behaviour
so: is there a way to have firefox only load content, scripts and data in general from sites under the same second level domain?
ideally, there should be no way for my data so leave site-im-on.com
s/so/to
as i understand, firefox already prevents scripts from executing across domain borders
and i know, that this feature will break some sites, for which i'd like to have a whitelist
:)
kbrosnan
adblock/noscript combo should do it
Cork
squirrelpimp: to make it clear, most of those buttons is loaded through javascripts
thats why adblock/noscript is a workable solution
squirrelpimp
kbrosnan: as i understood, noscript disabled adblock for some time and tinkered with it for some more time, so despite the authors excuses, i won't install it
but i already have adblock installed
Cork
squirrelpimp: i've been running adblock plus and noscript combo for a really long time, and have no problem with them
kbrosnan
disabled adblock for his domain. i don't know of an addon that does what noscript does
but feel free to look
squirrelpimp
Cork: yes. it's not that i suspect it's not working, but i didn't like the way things were made public
i'll have a look at it tough
Cork
squirrelpimp: noscript doesn't even have ads on its page, so no need for it to block adblock
(well he has ads for his own stuff, but...)
kbrosnan
it also was for his blog http://hackademix.net/
and there are google text ads on noscript.net
squirrelpimp
will i have to list all the sites in question in adblock?
kbrosnan
no idea about what you would need to block, https://adblockplus.org/forum/ looks to be active for discussions
squirrelpimp
ok.. noscript indeed looks suitable for the javascript part of the problem
still i'd like to prevent firefox itself from issuing a GET for content not located in the origin second level domain
http://adblockplus.org/blog/third-party-javascript-yes-it-is-a-security-risk
here is the solution, for those interested
thanks for the hints
gfather
hello guys, i need a plugin that convert page to image, any hint pleas ?

Mango
If anyone has any ideas about how to fix this, that would be super: http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-ece3e7c0-6377-440e-a4af-958ba2100201
We have so far tried disabling all add-ons, doing a clean install of Firefox, and deleting and recreating the profile.
This usually happens on javascript-heavy sites and always happens after a few minutes of viewing YouTube.
mzz
Mango: odd, I don't see anything obviously suspicious in there and it's apparently not a known crash. Is the stack always the same?
Mango
Stack?
xul.dll at the bottom you mean?
mzz
Mango: no, the function names in there. If you can just link me to a few more crash reports I can check.
Mango
I would be delighted.
http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/ac9d5328-345d-4e74-b5b7-800032100203
http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-0aaf3d2d-2d80-4547-af09-248f12100203
mzz
huh, what's dlssdk@dymo.com? Some printer-related addon?
Mango
Yeah. We've tried disabling that though and the issue still occurs.
mzz
stacks match, searching bugzilla in case crash-stats missed it somehow
Mango
We have several other computers also with Windows XP, the same version of Firefox, and the same addons, with no issue. It's very odd.
mzz
Mango: the most suspicious thing in there is dymo.dll. Are you sure dymo.dll actually vanishes from the modules tab if you disable the extension?
Mango
Hmm, I can check that when I get to the office later.
mzz
Mango: I can't find this crash in bugzilla.mozilla.org at all. Filing there (mentioning at least one crash report with dymo preferably disabled) might be a good idea.
oh, wait
Mango: what's "Script Checker Interceptor"?
Mango
I have no clue
mzz
(Action) googles it
Mango
(Action) too
where did you see it?
FUCK!
mzz
in the modules tab (scrchpg.dll)
Mango
er...I mean...darn :)
mzz
it's probably not malicious, but I can imagine it crashing, if it does what it sounds like it does.
(more likely to be the culprit than dymo.dll)
Mango
You know what; that's from is an antivirus program....that we no longer use
