is there a flash plugin for firefox for windows that is not adobe? do i have to build gnash for windows to do this?
kbrosnan
someone might distribute a gnash binary for windows. but that would be the only thing i know of
pereba
last beta flash plugin by adobe have support for gpu acceleration

minefield seems to restart too quickly while installing an update and fails because the previous firefox process is still running allegedly.
This never happened to me in ff-proper\
after closing firefox and allowing the process to exit, however, the update install successfully
can't the newly spawned process wait for the old firefox to exit and then try to kill it if it's taking too long?
then notify the user if all else fails?
Starcraftmazter
hey, is there any way to switch the tabbing behaviour on 3.6 so that new tabs go on the end?
rjohnson19
Starcraftmazter: Yes, browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent in about:config

I want to subscribe to http://www.wabcradio.com/blog.asp?id=34994 in google reader, but clicking the "subscribe" button produces raw xml. what to do?
rjohnson19
[[thufir]]: I get the feed subscription view. What OS / Firefox version, also does http://planet.mozilla.org/ work?
xangua
[[thufir]]: your page chashed my firefox :(
[[thufir]]
lol
I pasted the link for the raw xml into google reader, all good. why didn't FF automagically ask me, as it usually does, whether or not to use google reader?
FF 3.5.8, ubuntu 9.10
xangua
when i suscribe i usualy see a feed icon in the url, it doesn't appear here; it may have rfelation
[[thufir]]
yeah, that link worked fine, clicked on 2.0 and was prompted for google reader (my default).
rjohnson19
Ah, you didn't click the RSS icon in the location bar on that page, but the little image in the page, right?
xangua
yes, like a said usualy the feed icon appears in the url bar besides the web has or doesn't a big orange scary feed icon that says 'suscribe to me':P
rjohnson19
Well, the feed icon shows in the url bar for me, and if I click it all is well, but if you just go to http://www.wabcradio.com/sectionalRSS.aspx?id=34994, it shows raw XML. Not really sure why :/
Erm, nevermind, only Minefield is not showing me the feed UI now.

azizLIGHTS
im wanting to see the statusbar in fullscreen mode. im ooking on google, there is a css trick without using a ddon, does it work for current version of firefox ?
*looking
link to it http://infinity-unbound.blogspot.com/2008/07/viewing-firefox-status-bar-in-full.html
auscompgeek
You can use userChrome.css to do that, but it requires a restart ;)
azizLIGHTS
yes i beleive we're talking of the same one, are we?
does it still work for 3.what are we on now
auscompgeek
userChrome.css will not be removed, as long as userChrome.xul is not implemented :D
3.6 is the latest version.
azizLIGHTS
just to be sure this is the one right:
#status-bar
{
visibility: visible;
kbrosnan
and as long as the css ids have not changed
azizLIGHTS
}
auscompgeek
Yeah.
kbrosnan
please don't paste directly into the channel
azizLIGHTS
my bad
auscompgeek
Yeah, you don't want to fill up 100 log files with your pasting.
azizLIGHTS
where is the win7 profile located
auscompgeek
%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\
azizLIGHTS
im ooking in C:\Users\MEEEE\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\sjzgbjlc.default

auscompgeek
look in the chrome folder
then create a userChrome.css file if it isn't there.
then open it in Notepad.
azizLIGHTS
dont have a chrome folder either
i just see Cache/, OfflineCache/, and 3 files
auscompgeek
then create one :P
Wait, wrong folder.
I said %APPDATA%, not %LOCALAPPDATA%!
azizLIGHTS

sorry my mistake
auscompgeek

azizLIGHTS

i have a weird "bug" in our app, where command-click doesn't open a link in a new tab. it doesn't open it, period. but clicking on the link works. and right-clicking and choosing "open in a new tab" works. any clues how this is even possible?
p0a
Hello how do I load my passwords from a different filesystem to this filesystem?
from linux to linux. Which file to open in ~/.mozilla ?
I think its signons3.txt but how do I load it ?
Peng
p0a: You need key3.db too.
p0a: Why not copy all of ~/.mozilla over?
p0a
Hmmm I think I've saved some passwords in this profile too
if I do this I'll lost some of the passwords in this machine
ss
To "load it", you need to replace the one in the profile you want it to be in.
You can make a backup of it if you don't want to lose some.
Yeah, there are password syncing add-ons, I'm pretty sure.
p0a

mikke
hey when i copy formatted text from a website, like bold, italic, etc, and paste it into ms word, it also includes the formatting! but when i paste it into notepad, it just pastes the plain text, no html or nothing. so how does this actually work??
EdoDodo
mikke: You can't have html, bold, italics and stuff in notpad
mikke: Notepad edits plain text, no formatting
mikke
EdoDodo: yeah sure i know, but i dont get how word understands it as formatted, although it only pastes plain text to notepad
EdoDodo
mikke: Well both of them realize that the text is formatted
mikke
i mean i would understand if firefox would copy the actual html, with <b> and <i> and word just interprets it correctly
EdoDodo: no, notepad does not
EdoDodo
mikke: I would assume that it understands it but removes it since it wouldn't work in a plain text file
mikke
hm ok
and how is this information transmitted?
it cant be html, since i can easily paste html into notepad without notepad removing it
