Is there an add-on or something that will save form data so you don't lose it if FF crashes?
the crashed session is recovered easily - but without what I had typed into the form
LaraNYC

TannerF
yeah
         

LiENUS
i hate firefox
with its regular security upd8s
TannerF
LiENUS: would you rather have it be unsafe?
This is the first update of firefox in several just over 2 months, unless you use trunk
LiENUS

TannerF
sarcasm is hard to see over plain text, you know

;) or </sarcasm>

LaraNYC
imhere: like addons?
imhere
yeah
LaraNYC
you can do a lot with Firefox and customize it how you want, with addons or in about:config , depends on how advanced you are
are you looking for something specific?
imhere
I have never used firefox before but I was considering writing some scripts for it and seeing what addons were about
LaraNYC
look here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/

hi everybody. I'm wondering why the JavaScript (null, [].sort)() returns the "window" object on Firefox, and doesn't do anything on IE... can someone give me some pointers to what could explain such behavior ? thanks in advance

NishaKitten
could anyone tell mey why I can only have 8 personas installed at once?
worst part is firefox just gets rid of my old ones to make room for new ones and doesn't tell me at all
nvm found how to patch it away.
carpii
is there a way to run firefox's live update form command line? My menu item says I dont have permissions (Im on mac)
Iszak
Perhaps I'm mistaken, but why was there a lot of noise about the bug that .2 fixed, it just caused the browser to crash, nothing more right? it's not like they could install software on your computer?
Don't get me wrong, the ability to crash the browser is a bad thing, but it's not as bad as it was made out to be.
jpincheirab
hi guys. do you know a simple wait to call a bash command from a javascript function┬┐?
thank you
something like this?
var command = "touch /tmp/foo";
java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command);
what do you think about it?
(Action) just found that in a forum

naxa
hi! I'm using 3.6 on windows and if I click a link in an external applaciation it say firefox is already running and the link won't be opened. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox with no luck but I didn't change the profile. Now when I've tried to update to 3.6.2 it also said that the update is failed (however it started, but didn't finished) and maybe an instance of firefox is running. I...
...had 3.7 and 3.6 beta previously but I updated 3.6 to the release and uninstalled 3.7 i think. :)

hi
where is the thudnerbird supportchannel?
i upgradet to thunderbird 3 and te default setting was that thunderbird syncs the imap folders to view mails local, now thunderbird fodler in home uses about 400MB how to delete this offline content which is also available on my imap.account?
perhaps some know it also ehre sicne its a mozilla app?
naxa
well i dont
but I think you're on the wrong server
http://irc.mozilla.org/
" connect to server irc.mozilla.org and type /join #thunderbird "
kbrosnan
naxa: check the shortcut you are launching firefox from, it might have -no-remote in it
or maybe the enviroment variable MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 is set
naxa
kbrosnan: that was the case! brilliant!
kbrosnan: thank you, i forgot about this setting
kbrosnan
The_ManU_212: http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/ as well

In high contrast mode , some images are hidden

?>
High contrast = changing the background colors of the page
ik0n
do you have to restart firefox to see the 3.6.2 update notification?
i never close firefox and im wondering if i am missing notifications
sdwilsh
ik0n: I think it can take up to 24 hours for your computer to get the update notification
ik0n: you can always manually do it by doing tools -> check for updates
ik0n
but do you have to restart the program to see the automatic update notice?
assuming ive waited 24-48 hours

How can I open a URL in "chrome" mode? I want to be able to set the value of an input of type file because of testing an application
sahilsk
guys, any idea what chatzilla is made of ?
i need to know in which language chatzilla is written?? is it python,perl, php or what?
gavin
sahilsk: javascript, css, and xul
just like firefox
the underlying gecko engine is mostly C++
sahilsk
gavin, c++, firefox,
i thought firefox is written in xul only. w
gavin
"firefox" as an application is two parts
the gecko rendering engine, and the firefox front-end
the gecko rendering engine is reponsible for both interpreting web pages, as well as interpreting the firefox front end xul/javascript code
sahilsk
aaah
gavin
gecko is c++, almost entirely
sahilsk
oooh, do we have such engine in google chrome?
gavin
firefox (and chatzilla and other xul apps like it) are javascript/css/xul
google chrome's architecture is somewhat different
it has webkit, the web rendering engine, but it's UI is written in native code

Anyone know how I can run Firefox 3+ in a relaxed security mode so I can access an <input type="file"> from javascript? I need to do this to be able to test a file upload form automatically
I know it's possible through Selenium and setting the mode to *chrome, but I would like to do it manually
gavin
what do you mean by "access"?
mattis__
Just be able to write to the value attribute I guess, so that I can automate uploading of a file in my continuous integration
tests
sahilsk
making extension for chrome is very easy. simple javascript and nothing else. But i wonder what it take to wirte chtazilla like app?In perl and python , it's easy, but writing it for firefox platform is somewhat different.
mattis__
I have been googling a while and I can only dig up that it's a security measure introduced in Firefox 3+ to disable people from uploading files involuntarily by malicious websites, but somehow by placing the browser in a more relaxed mode (Selenium calls it "chrome" mode) it's possible to accomplish
sahilsk
thanks gaven. goodnight. :D
mattis__
At the moment I have Selenium running my tests in chrome mode, but I stumbled across other problems, so I need to debug what is going wrong, hence I would like to be able to place my own browser into this relaxed security mode

hi guys. I need some help. I'm trying to execute some unix command from a javascript/html page, using an custom firefox extension in order to be able to load the javascript function that holds the bash call from a chrome:// uri, so firefox can actually execute it, I'm following this tutorial http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1006108 But the problem is that I make simple button, but when putting the script html tag to call the functions.js the html only dr
aws an empty html page. But when I delete the html script tag, it shows the button properly, obviously without being able to do what I want, because there's no javascript instructions. Any ideas?
thank you :)
cric cric?
:D
FriedrichMan
hello there everyone!
doyou know anything about this google addon for firefox...the SEO?
I have a question about it
kbrosnan
FriedrichMan: extension questions are best driected to the extension developers
FriedrichMan
sorry but I don't understnd that
I am spanish speaking
all I want to know is if I can filter my searches so I only get results from PR 3 on
Schmorgluck
heya, people
is there a way to selectively allow cross-cookies?
kbrosnan
FriedrichMan: The people who wrote the extension are the best able to answer support questions.
FriedrichMan
kbrosnan: so where am I supposed to ask the questions then?
kbrosnan
what extension?
FriedrichMan
I tried in #google but nobody seems to know the answer over there
spiralh
anyone know what version jagermonkey is going to be released? or is that not known yet?
*in what version . . .
Schmorgluck
come to think of it: I can no longer find in Preferences where I can set cross-cookies to be disabled by default
does anybody know where I can do that?
kbrosnan
spiralh: gecko 1.9.3 at this moment
you mean 3rd party cookies? privacy > use custom settings
Schmorgluck
I'm getting more and more worried, because I remember the solution you mention, kbrosnan, but my browser doesn't propose it any more
spiralh
kbrosnan: thanks
kbrosnan
FriedrichMan: if you are using Google's toolbar, http://www.google.com/support/toolbar/?hl=es ?
Schmorgluck
Ah, finally found it
dany__
hi all
I have a problem, I'm on ubuntu and if I watch a video on youtube there is no sound
Athen
how can I change how far a single scroll of my mousewheel moves the page ?
[editing the about:config entries pertaining to mousewheel appear to have no effect]
nvm, I got it
Kano
hi, could somebody delete the en-US.xpi from
http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/MD5SUMS
kbrosnan
dany__: close firefox any other sound producing programs, kill pulseaudio and restart firefox. this may work
Kano
it is in all checksum files
but not even there in that dir
dany__
kbrosnan: it doesn't work :(
Kano
please recreate md5sum that is not in there anymore. my script to fetch the latest firefox does not expect a en-US.xpi as first line
colakid
any chance anyone can gimme a hand with firefox
kbrosnan
Kano: check with #bmo on irc.mozilla.org
colakid
thx
its actually more of a flash problem
there a specific channel for that perchance?
Schmorgluck
dany__, I've had some similar problems some weeks ago
have you tried a reboot?
dany__
Schmorgluck: hi, sure but it did not work
kbrosnan
colakid: being a bit more specific would help
Schmorgluck
mmmmh, my problem inexplicably solved itself eventually, so I'm not sur I can help
colakid
ok.. im in suse 11.3.. flash plugin works in the firefox but it likes to blank out.. its there and i can hear it but its as if its not rendering or something.. cant understand why though first time ive come across it
maxstirner1
Hello, my firefox 3.6 on linux gets very unresponsive after a while, CPU load goes to 100% before switching tabs, minimising/maximising etc. Restarting application helps - any way to troubleshoot this?
kbrosnan
maxstirner1: start by disabling plugins/extensions improves the situation
maxstirner1
kbrosnan: I will try doing that once its slowed down again. I also think I modified my config with one of those "make it faster" how-tos, bit apprehensive it might be that. Thanks for your attention
kbrosnan
colakid: can't say i run into that on linux. short of making sure you are using the most recent flash plugin from adobe
dany__
Schmorgluck: thx anyway :))
kbrosnan
maxstirner1: those can be reset by renaming your prefs.js in your firefox profile, with firefox closed
colakid
it all apears to be upto date.. its very strange though.. like ive got 2 youtube windows open now.. first one i opened is grey.. second is as it should be though
kbrosnan
dany__: can any program make sound?
maxstirner1
kbrosnan: excellent thanks
dany__
kbrosnan: yes sure, only flash videos have not sound
colakid
ok thanks anyway i ned to bail.. laters
