ugh my vidoe is streched lol
im on linuxps
mark____
guys im on ubuntu and firefox is using 101% of hte cpu in top
auscompgeek
How can Firefox use 101% CPU if there is only 100% CPU altogether?
mark____
dual core ?
Peng
Yeah, or just a bit of bad math in top or whatever.
mark____
either way, linux has frozen up about 4 time today
and i think it might ff
Peng
...
Firefox really shouldn't make your entire system freeze.
mark____
yea i know its sick software one of my favs

cpu
its the crappy website

hi
I have the firefox program folder from a previous OS installation and I want to retrieve my favorites. The profile folder content seems encrypted. How do I retrieve my favorites?
         

auscompgeek
it isn't encrypted.
jimisrvrox
hey folks is there an entry in the config to speed up the time it takes to display the right click context menu?

auscompgeek
favorites?
What are favorites?
TannerF
auscompgeek: Don't be a smartass
zpao
that's IE speak for bookmarks
auscompgeek
:P
Turbulenti
Ok, Bookmarks. Ooops
zpao
hmm, my sarcasm meter appears to be busted
Turbulenti: you'll need to copy some files from your profile folder from your previous OS install. though if you didn't back that up, then you're out of luck
Turbulenti
I'm applying for a job that specifies candidates would be able to help with the development of inventory management.
hmm, I created another installation on a different hard drive. The firefox program folder is literally what was on the previous install.
zpao
right, but you don't need the firefox program folder, you need your profile folder. see http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles#How_to_find_your_profile
Turbulenti
Ok, fair enough. How do I add, "places.sqlite", from one install to another without overwriting my current file?
Ryulong
I'm coming across something weird on YouTube that I believe may be related to Adblock plus but I'm not that sure; I cannot remove videos from my "Subscriptions" feed on the front page by clicking the [x] box that shows up next to it. It seems to work fine with the recommended videos.
Turbulenti
If I restore a previous bookmark file backup will the restoration overwrite or add to my current bookmarks?
rjohnson19
I believe the json backups overwrite, Turbulenti. It'll prompt you before doing that
Turbulenti
there is a book mark that I could use in my job application but I cant quite recall.
rjohnson19
You could make a new profile and load up the old bookmarks there.
Turbulenti
This is kind of screwed. If someone wants the bookmarks from a previous install it should be just a matter of being able copy the file without having to worry about how it will effect an active install. I was thinking about creating another user account on the computer. Seems excessive for one bookmark.
zpao
Turbulenti: there's a workaround (i haven't tried but apparently works). export current bookmarks to html, import your json backup (which overwrites), then import your html (which merges)
and Turbulenti. while it would be awesome if things could automerge, it doesn't work like that. if you write a document. then create a new one. you can't just put them in the same place and expect them to merge automagically
Turbulence
Thanks very much.

Ryulong
Is there an easy way to prevent Megaupload's terrible popunders from showing up? I don't think ABP is cutting it.
becker_11
I don't want to install an extension such as tabmix plus just to get my tabs opening the way I want them so is there a about:config option to open tabs next to the parent tab??
Ryulong: ABP has options to show everything that can be blocked on a page maybe you could create the block filter yourself
Ryulong
I've tried
becker_11
Ryulong: fair enough
Ryulong
it's a javascript thing
Apparently
becker_11
Ryulong: yeah I'm not good with javascript
Anyone know which setting I need to change or create in about:config to have tabs open next to the parent tab??

Hello - is anyone aware of a site with complex test pages? Like for example slashdot, ebay, ... but static, so easy to use for 'open 20 windows and check total cpu and ram' benchmarks?
sybariten
hey
i keep asking this
but what is the technique called when people use the adress bar to give complex search queries directly ?
There was someone in the channel mocking me sometime because of using the quick google search textfield because (s)he said (s)he did the same search directly from the adress bar instead.
But i cant remember if this all was restricted to google.
rjohnson19
You are referring to http://kb.mozillazine.org/Keyword.URL ?
sybariten
Hm
Maybe
But i was pointed to one mozilla article once and that was not it.... hmmm sight
sigh
hey rjohnson19 its prolly this

hi
my Firefox just started complaining it cannot find "libxul.so"
but i didn't move it
it's still in /usr/lib/firefox-3.6
(Action) is using Ubuntu and fresh Fx 3.6
(Action) wonders where Fx looks for that lib
executing /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox-bin doesn't help
i should propably be on some #ubuntu -channel about this...
Matisse
hi
is it possible to start ff always in offline mode?
An_Ony_Moose
in firefox 3.5.8, running firefox -ProfileManager just opens a new window in the default profile
was the profile manager removed?
Matisse
as i remember this only worked, if firefox is not running already
An_Ony_Moose
oh
ok, thanks :)
is there a good reason for it really?
Matisse
dunno
rjohnson19
You can use -ProfileManager -no-remote if you want to run a second profile side by side with a running Firefox
An_Ony_Moose
ah
thanks :)
Matisse
How can I start ff always in offline mode?
kolpur

Kardos
is there a way to make firefox automatically export a webpage as pdf, but via commandline? i need to do it in a crontab,
Matisse
kolpur, a list of all addons? you ll find it in the addon menu
Kardos, do it with wget if possible
kolpur
<Matisse> is there any file regarding that information ?
xangua
about:support i think
Matisse
kolpur, dont know sorry
kolpur
xangua, its not a valid url
xangua
type 'about.support' in your adres bar, enter
rjohnson19
That only works in 3.6
xangua
'about:support' *
