I just clicked the wrong button and downloaded a FF update when I didn't want to. It's set to install next time I start FF. Is there a way to prevent this? I haven't shut FF down yet. using FF3.6 tia
dolske
why don't you want to update?
ziplock
I have several computers, the one in question is the one that's always my last to update. Personal quirk, want to maintain the pattern
dolske
ziplock: probably the easiest way it to look for update.mar and delete it. What OS? (Location varies)
ziplock
OSX
thanks
spotlight can't find update.mar, sigh
dolske
ziplock: should be in /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/updates/0
bbl
ziplock
dolske, that worked. Thanks
duh, he's gone

Whenever I launch Firefox, every time it greets me License agreement window. Even though I accepted the agreement.
I am using FF v 3.0
JodaX
why does the onmouseover tryout of Personas not work anymore ?
JigSaw-2, there is a license agreement for firefox ?
JigSaw-2
JodaX, Yes, there is !
JodaX
well, i suggest checking if your profile folder is somehow write only (just wipe it, to also rule out corruption there)
JigSaw-2
JodaX, Do I need to have the profile folder right before opening the FF.
else it will greet me with agreement window ?
JodaX
dunno, but where else would the info that you accepted the agreement be stored
JigSaw-2
JodaX, That's the Q in point !
How firefox come to know, with which application the said file to open ?
e.g. If I open a pdf file from browser, it ask me to open it with acroread, which is set default helper application fro pdf file.
But from where firefox pick up this information ?

is there a way to make firefox cache pages like opera does? I don't want firefox to make a connection to google.com everytime I load it

I set it to 3. :-)

hello. does anybody know if it is possible to set the default preview browser in the seamonkey composer to firefox? i.e. make it open firefox instead of opening the edited html-files in its own browser? I already tried setting the default application for html-files to firefox, but it doesnt work that way.

is there anyway to restart a download that firefox mistakenly thought it completed?
i have the partial file and the .part
Logic^
sometimes u can open the download manager and press the startbutton
but this works for only a few servers
jwillia3
Logic^: it restarts, but it's significantly behind where the download actually was. ~150mb
Logic^
mmh in this case i would guess there is no way^^

CalimeroTeknik this "bug" is known and going to be addressed
         

CalimeroTeknik

do I have to download a different version of FF for every language I want to support?
I know other programs, will automatically select the proper language, with 1 install of the software, depending on what language the user is using.
like microslop office, for example...install the language packs, and anyone that is logged in with that language, automatically gets office in that language....is firefox capable of doing this too?
CalimeroTeknik
what is your distribution ?
WormFood, on mine is a firefox-i18n package
NickLee
hi, how do i allow firefox to remember multiple tabs for multiple firefox windows?
because if i close one firefox window at a time, re-starting the firefox will only display the last closed firefox window tabs
