on some webpages with a password, firefox doesn't ask whether I want it to remember the password (though it used to). how can I fix that ?
Peng
g38: The website is asking Firefox not to prompt you, by setting autocomplete="off". Get the "remember password" bookmarklet from https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/ to override it. There's probably an equivalent Greasemonkey script, too.

thanks, I'll look at this

Is it possible to have all links that are currently opened in tabs dumped into a text file?
[mharrison]
Is there a way I can access everything I've typed into a form in firefox? Say I've entered data into a series of pages, all with <form id="foo">
Ah, apparently there's a formhistory.sqlite I can open

hey guys... at the moment on ubuntu wit firefox 3.5.8 and when opening firefox the search bar is not focused until i click it...not usual for firefox on linux and not if I install namroko
any suggestions?
namaraoko
darn fingers
namaroko
I was hoping there was a settings in aobut:config for th is
xangua
the search bar or the location bar¿¿
normaly it fpcuses the location bar
coz_
xangua, no the search bar and normally at least for me that is what gets focused with blinking cursor
generally I just open firefox and begin typing a search string...right now I have to either click the search bar or hit the home button for the blinking cursor to s how in the search field
xangua
you can focus the search bar with Control+k
coz_
xangua, no that doesnt work here
xangua
windows¿¿
coz_
oh no this is linux
xangua
well, it does here
coz_
xangua, cool but somehow t his was disabled or changed during an update.... installing a beta version works fine but then some plugins dont work
i would like to hunt this down and correct it :)
xangua
beta¿¿
you can use the lates stable firefox in ubuntu with 'firefox-stable PPA' or 'Ubuntuzilla' repositories
coz_
xangua, ok thanks
but I think I will try to hunt down the issue and correct it :)
lifestream
Hmmm.... I'm running Firefox 3.6.2 in linux with the 1.6.0_18 Java, but it is still not working. I verified on the Java page, and it always says "Error".
xangua
what distro¿
lifestream
crunchbang debian
Sorry I don't like Iceweasel. Wish there was a easier way to install The Real Firefox in debian, like... A repo... *sugestion* ^_^;
xangua
wasn't crunchbag based on ubuntu¿¿
lifestream
It was :D
xangua
ooh
well there is for ubuntu: 'firefox-stable PPA' and 'Ubuntuzilla'
lifestream
That's official?
xangua
firefox-stable ppa is from the oficial mozilla team in ubuntu
Peng
Which would make it Ubuntu-official, not Mozilla-official, right?
         

lifestream
:-(
xangua
ubuntuzilla download the oficial (not ubuntu) mozilla build
in ubuntuzilla they also mention some issue with java plugin and how to fix it http://ubuntuzilla.wiki.sourceforge.net/
lifestream
Wait.. is it official mozilla or "official" mozilla courtesy of Ubuntu?
Sorry... :x
xangua
wich one¿¿

Is there any way to configure firefox to accept multiple SSL certs for a single site?
I have a site that uses vhosts, and it seems about 50/50 which SSL cert it gives me.
Cork
multible?
jayne
yes... normally when you create an exception it overwrites any previously-created exception
Cork
jayne: you can't use more then one ssl cert per ip, its a limitation in the protocol
not in firefox
its a serverside limitation
jayne
Cork: you can have multiple certs per IP -- it's an extention -- but firefox only stores one cert per domain name
or at least, it appears to... hence my question
Cork
well, as far as i know, the protocol demands an ip for each cert; so donno
Peng
TLS Server Name Indication solves that problem, but it isn't very widely supported yet.
You still need one cert per IP for good compatibility.
jayne
Peng: yeah, that's the name I was looking for.
so I have a server using SNI, but it seems to get it wrong about half the time.
Is there any way I can have FF accept both certs for the same domain?
Cork
jayne: btw, donno if i can help you, but are the certs using the same CN?
(as thats whats used to validate the certs)
jayne
Cork: no
two different subdomains of one top-level domain
Cork
so in other words your serving invalid certs?
jayne
I'm not serving them, and as far as I know, they're not invalid
or, they wouldn't be if SNI was working 100%
Cork
jayne: the certs are invalid if the cn doesn't match your current fqdn
so you would have to add an exception i guess
jayne
Cork: right. When SNI works right, they match
but the server seems to pick the wrong cert about 50% of the time
Cork
thats kinda why you should have one ip per cert ;)
Peng
Then that's a server bug and has nothing to do with #firefox.
jayne
Yes, it's a server bug, but I have to live with it, and firefox makes it exceptionally hard to work around
Peng
Why must you live with it?>
Cork
jayne: the only way you can get firefox to fix that is through exceptions, as you will have to tell firefox to accept an invalid cert
jayne
Peng: because I don't have control of the server
Cork: I have to add an exception every time, is the problem
if I could add two exceptions for the same domain, then I'd not have to screw with it every time the servers screws up and hands out the wrong cert
Cork
jayne: it should remember the cert if you make them permanent, but you will have to add it for each port you use it on
jayne
Cork: yes, I'm aware
If there were no server bug, firefox is working fine. But there is a server bug, so I'd like to know if there's a way firefox can make it easier for me
Cork
jayne: its a hard thing to handle well, as its a type of problem where you really can't trust the cert...
jayne
I'm willing to risk that if I get either one of two certs, then it's okay
but if I get a random third cert, then it should complain like normal
Cork
jayne: i guess its that the exception proceds the normal cert lookup, and blocks it if you have an exception
but this feels like such and edge case i don't think it will change in the core
(Action) googles a bit
jayne: nope, i think you can do this through creating an extension though
but i really think you should talk with the server admin instead
jayne
yeah, ideally the server wouldn't screw it up, but I don't really know the admin and I'm not sure the admin knows how to fix it anyway.
seems like if anything it would be a bug in whatever httpd is being used
Cork
jayne: they can fix it more or less the only way there is, by splitting the hosts to different ips
jayne
which would mean the admin contacting the developers for that httpd
Cork
jayne: but just contact them and tell them what problem you have with there site
jayne: not like you have to know them for that
getting this kind of bug reports when you run a server is crusal, so if they ar serius about what they do, they will be interested
jayne
I can try
Quine42
every time i seek ahead in this one youtube video firefox freezes
stevecam
im finding that firefox is still running in the background quite often, and when i go to start it up again it will tell me about it
is this a common problem?
Cork
stevecam: its farly common, but always caused by extensions or sometimes plugins
try in safe mode, or disable some of your extensions
stevecam
its happening without extensions, i get it on my computer, and then i just isntalled ubuntu on a friends computer and he is getting annoyed cas it seems to be happening to him to
Cork
hmm
tried disabling the plugins?
tools > addons > plugins
stevecam
there wern't any pluigins to disable
Cork
there should be
at least the default ones
stevecam
this is stupid, firefox used to work perfectly and since 3.5 it has just been going downhill
Cork
i've been using firefox in ubuntu for years and never really had any real problems (except for some big problems with 3.0)
dare
firefox is getting better, it now uses just 60mb memory per tab
Cork
i pek at 300-400 for the complete process nomater how many tabs i have
dare
oh, even better
stevecam
if its getting better why does it play up so much
Cork
stevecam: as i said, its something with your configuration, cause i can't repro that at all with a clean installation
dare
(Action) wants firefox + addons + plugins to run in under 32mb memory
anything else is unacceptabe!
Cork
LOL
in our dream
dare
unacceptable*
Cork
*your
stevecam
Cork, it is happening a lot under a clean installation
ive installed it on several computers so far, and they all have problems
these problems didnt exist at 3.0
dare
stevecam, which os?
Cork
ubuntu
stevecam
Ubuntu and Windows XP
dare
oh, maybe some plugin is stopping it from exiting?
i have no problems on windows..
stevecam
simple OS's that i help people with
dare
it dies within 5 seconds of exiting
Cork
same here, in both winxp,7 and ubuntu
dare
anywayz, change the launcher to " killall -9 firefox-3.5 | firefox-3.5" ?
Cork
thats kinda messy...
dare
linux is a mess
Cork
uh... no
dare
everything hacked together in a big mess
stevecam
i could believe that the exiting problem was ubuntu specific, but the general slowdown of the browser is terrible
dare
maybe it's a networking issue
stevecam
firefox is the only webrowser that is going that slow
its slower then MSIE
dare
it's super fast here
ceeney
ff is insecure, and ie is much better
dare
and ie has better addons
and works on your loonix
oh, wait..
ceeney
absolutly
i just found a security hole in ff/seamonkey
i cant believe this
Peng
So file a bug you jackass.
Cork
to late...
dare
he can't file it if he doesn't believe it!
Peng
Cork: I know. I wouldn't have called him a jackass to his face. :D
Cork
LOL
i get a feeling he haven't found anything, and just mooning
West
Peng: would it be possible to obtain a ff cloak?
Peng
West: I'm not involved in that. The relevant link is http://etherpad.mozilla.com:9000/freenode-cloaks
ver
my application is receiving %uXXXX characters in GET requests and i was wondering if there was some documentation on how to handle these (particularly, how they are encoded)
West
Thanks
woah, auscompgeek is going for a support cloak, eh?
cool
I requested the plain ol' peasant version XD
Cork
ver: they should be prefixed unicode entities
West
Cork: can you tell me if my cloak request was done correctly?
Cork
ya
Chickenfoot
ya?
West
sweet...do you remember how long it took for yours to get approved?
Cork
West: its done manually, so you will most likly have to wait a few days
West
I'm guessing it is not a for sure thing.
Cork
i think it took like 3-4 for me
West
like, they'd be able to deny the request if they didn't like their lunch they had on that specific date
Cork
West: lol, its not thats stiffly handled :D
West
excellent
I've been trying to get my hands on that url for a month or more...auscompgeek wanted me to find it on my own. hehe
Thanks to the help of Peng

(Action) wonders who West is
West
(Action) np: Modest Mouse - You're The Good Things (Foodstream) [00:00m/128kbps/44kHz]
sorry about that
Peng
West: Ah! You cheated by asking me! :D
West
I'm a loyal idler and firefox user
:p
people have tried converting me...it did't work.
didn't*
Peng: I used my RPG skills to obtain the information I needed.
(Action) np: 65daysofstatic - hole (Foodstream) [00:00m/128kbps/44kHz]
grr
stupid stream
Peng
At least it's not porn. :P
West
indeed lol

Cork, i figured that, but the numbers don't match up to my table. i was wondering if they're octal? would &#XXXX; be equivalent?
