I have a big problem and hope someone can help...
Firefox segfaults as follows... http://mange.dynalias.org/linux/misc/Handelsbanken.txt
The result is that i cant use this bank.
Worked for 2 years, im thinking that maybe curl is the culprit here, although firefox should not segfault in the first place.
Hmm, cant even join #mozilla
Any thoughts ?
snaffle
where are the certificates stored? is it local to mozilla or does it use the system provided store? (im on ubuntu)
dolske
snaffle: cert8.db in your Firefox profile, iirc.
snaffle
dolske, hrm ok thanks!
mengu
hi. can i embed firefox preview in my program?
*firefox view
         

MoonaSailout
dolske: look at this, what can be the issue -> http://mange.dynalias.org/linux/misc/Handelsbanken.txt
dolske
dunno. run a build from Mozilla, see if you can reproduce, and file a bug with a crashreport ID.
wjm
This is gonna sound kinda stupid but how do I file a bug report for a bug on something that just makes FireFox hang but not crash out or spit out any errors?
dolske
wjm: file a bug with steps to reproduce.
wjm
dolske: yeah actually I think this is a bug that Ubuntu caused :(
cause it's not happening on my Slack or FreeBSD rigs
anhsir
is a thread per tab or process per tab feature anywhere on the horizon for firefox?
Peng
anhsir: Yes.
anhsir: The project is called Electrolisys (except I'm probably misspelling it)
anhsir
spelling doesn't matter anymore with through the magic of google :)
Peng: thank you
mzz
electrolysis, I'm pretty sure
anhsir
yup, https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis
Peng
Oh, darn. I wrote it that way first! :D

Hi, I've tried to set browser.link.open_newwindow to 1 with the intent to open ALL links in the same tab, but tabs still happen in new tabs, or or wrose, new windos. What can I do?
Sorry for typos, the keyboard is being bad.
TannerF
MJBrune: comradekingu: issue fixed. thanks for telling us.

Saturn2888
Hey all, I've been searching for a few hours now and can't seem to find a way to change the already-saved passwords.
Peng
Saturn2888: Go to the web page where the saved password is used and type a different one.
Dunno if a way to do it through the manager. :-\
Saturn2888
doesn't work with some HTTPS pages anymore
like PayPal. I don't mind it not saving my bank password, but I check my PayPal often
Peng
Saturn2888: Get the "Remember Password" bookmarklet from https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/ or so. There's probably an equivalent Greasemonkey script and/or extension.
dolske
...yeah, that.
You can also flip on https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox:Password_Manager_Debugging to see what it's doing.
Saturn2888
what is that?
Peng
What is what?
Saturn2888
I got this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2848, exported it non-obfuscated, deleted the ones I wanted to change in FFox, changed the values for the ones I want to change while deleting the others (all of them), then imported back.
What is that bookmarklet?
dolske
the bookmarklet basically just removes autocomplete=off from forms.
Peng
Saturn2888: Some websites tell Firefox not to let you save your password. That bookmarklet overrides it.
dolske
which is the most common method sites use for preventing passwords from being saved/updated.
Saturn2888
ooh?
I was on that bookmarklet site, but couldn't find the link I wanted
Peng
https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/forms.html#remember_password ?
Saturn2888
ah! it's in the middle of the page for me okay
Thank you guys, that makes more sense now
I actually have a bookmarklet so this I'll add to the folder
thank you so much!
Oh man it worked! :D
thank thank thanks
bye

good evening all
I have a puzzling question, hope to get an answer
been running FF 3.7a1-3 When I close the browser then try to restart later I get nothing
it stays that way forever, unless I start an earlier version
I can start the earlier version, kill it immediately, then start 3.7a3 again. It occurs on two separate computers...
any idea whats going on and what I can do to test and/or fix it?
jimisrvrox
hey folks is there an entry in the config to speed up the time it takes to display the right click context menu?

is anyone facing this problem with firefox 3.6.2
/usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox-bin: /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/libssl3.so: version `NSS_3.12.6' not found (required by /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/libxul.so)

hi
lifestream
Hi, I asked last night, but I got disconnected from the Internet before I saw responses. I'll ask again :-) I set browser..link.open_newwindow and browser.link.open_newwinow.restriction both to 1, but links still happen however they want, not in the same tab. I'm trying to make any and all links open in the tab they were clicked.
Im not sure what I'm doing wrong
augustl
Firefox 3.6 supports HTML5 files. Can you create files as well? Or are you restricted to reading?
by create files, I mean generating the contents of the file and show a normal downloa type dialog, not writing to disk.

anyone experience crashs on pages with multiple audio tags ?
seems to work fine for one, but with a page with 10 firefox quits instantly
i guessing the first one may have a lock on the audio causing subsequent audio tags to crash the browser
utvkl
is it possible to use a new profile that doesn't share cookies on linux? firefox -P yo seems to share cookies with main profile?
use case is testing with different users on site e.g. a user with admin creds and one with user creds
rjohnson19
utvkl: profiles don't share cookies as far as I know...there should be a cookies.sqlite in each profile.
gp5st
Anyone have a good list for leechblock?
utvkl
rjohnson19: I forgot to include -no-remote, -no-remote and -P did the trick. Thank you sir

what open ie site by firefox?
WormFood
is there a module that will automatically change the display language in FF, to match what language the user is logged in with, on winblows?
I should say, "FF interface", as I'm not talking about what the web server sends to ff
stevecoh1
Can someone give the true status of FF 3.6 and IE Tab? I depend on IE Tab and am frankly scared to install 3.6. Google brings nothing but bad news about the Coral IE Tab replacement.
The megacorporation I work for frowns on Firefox, yet I prefer it. Most internal sites do not work without IE Tab. If it doesn't work with 3.6 I will have to go back to IE.

Okay. I'm really scared to post this question again, because as soon as I do I'm instakicked from my internet. I'm starting to get paranoid. I'm sorry for the trouble xD! So the question:

Hi, I've tried to set browser.link.open_newwindow to 1 with the intent to open ALL links in the same tab, but tabs still happen in new tabs, or or wrose, new windos. What can I do?
It's not so simple, once I'm kicked off the internet I can't login for like 1 hr :P
TannerF
websites can set it to do otherwise
lifestream
Yes, but is there a way to prevent them opening in new windows and tabs? completely / 100%?
TannerF
not afaik
lifestream
well worth a try, ty :)
babbio_
hi guys
lifestream
hello
babbio_
i'm having a problem with firefox, I can't connect to some website....firefox is always loading....is there some kind of "logging" to view what firefox is doing???
lifestream
If you're in Linux you could start firefox from the terminal
You should be able to do that too in Windows and Mac
babbio_
ah.....sure thanku
i'have not error message in the shell
;(
lifestream
Google "is it down or is it just me", it will tell you if you're the only one having problems with that website :p
Sorry it's downforeveryoneorjustme
borior
hi all. is there a way I can turn XSS protection off for scripts loaded by http://localhost?
babbio_
It's just you. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov is up.
TannerF
babbio_: any firewalls?
babbio_
no
no firewall, no proxy
medfly
is this a half decent place to ask for help if you are a noob trying to make a firefox extension
or there is another
lifestream
Yeah that website works for me babbio_ hmm... *thinks*
babbio_, try https, all it does is make it "more secure", but maybe it will make it load too :P
Just put 's' wihtout the quotes in front of http
babbio_
the website works for me but i can't do "search"
lifestream
OH
babbio_
and
the problem is only on linux
from windows xp i can do everything i want
lifestream
Im on linux and i cann access. must be some odd setting
You're in Italy?
babbio_
yes i am
lifestream
Did a /whois yournickname to see. hmm..
babbio_
i also tried with chrome but same error.....loading loop
medfly
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov doesn't seem to load for me.
lifestream
You might want to ask on your distrobution chanel, but I bet you already asked :(
medfly
oh, it does now.
okay.
lifestream
But she can't do search
oh wow they have a c++ toolkit! :P (doing random searches there LOL)
babbio_
what is a "distribution channel"?
medfly
a channel for your inux distribution
like say, #ubuntu
babbio_
ah ok
lifestream
For example, if you use Ubuntu, you'd go to /join #ubuntu
babbio_
i'll try there
medfly
well assuming you use ubuntu

How can i see a listing of all existing tags in v3.6.2 ?
judgen
aaargh i updated firefox and now adblocking does not work even though the add-on claims it works.
aah just the filters that went poof =P
No worries then
Peng
That isn't supposed to happen...
judgen
ok
too bad my custom filters are now gone and i have to re-add all those pesky ad-block workarounds that some sites uses.
Peng
judgen: There should be backups of your filters in the 'adblockplus' subdirectory of your profile.
judgen
Peng thanks for the help, noly a few filters lost.
Ill be back if something else craps out =D
vikashag
can any one let me know how to fix a bug from scratch
TannerF
what bug?
SpinachHead
can I kill all the dialog boxes?
TannerF
Disable Javescript
SpinachHead
I mean I am stuck in an array of them and can't do anything but close them. Can I escape their focus?
that needs to be added like how chrome has a checkbox to prevent the rest from showing up.
I guess the only way is to kill the process
where do I suggest new features?
Peng
SpinachHead: 1.) If you hold Escape to close them, you should be able to X out of the tab, 2.) I've heard there's an extension that helps with this, 3.) Yes, you're right, that Chrome feature is awesome.
I think Opera has something similar, too.
SpinachHead
I was looking for a place to request it for firefox, but the information is not clear how to go about doing it. Though, I'm sure they know about it
Peng
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ is the bug tracker, but yes, I'm sure they know.
MisterMonty
does anyone know a form filler for firefox? Not just for passwords, but any kind of form item, even comboboxes and checkboxes..
