TannerF

gyzmodo
3.6

Silly question: I accidentally enabled the "Do not ask me again next time" checkbox when closing firefox with multiple tabs open (where it asks you to Quit, Save+Quit, or Cancel). How do I get the message back?
I can't see it in the options or in about:config
TannerF
Lorknirn: Its just under tabs in tools->options
iirc
gyzmodo
hehe
Lorknirn
"Warn me when closing multiple tabs"?
It's turned on
gyzmodo
i've solve me problem
Lorknirn
Still doesn't show any message (always does Save+Quit right now)
         

gyzmodo
with "alt" key
Lorknirn
Oh well
I guess I can work around this by getting used to never closing firefox again ;)

anyone know how to do asio playback on an internet media player?
without resampling to 48k and allowing people with asio drivers to stream 44.1

Different question: Is there a way to make firefox open a blank tab when closing the last tab, instead of just shutting down the browser completely?
Ooh nevermind, answered my own question
browser.tabs.closeBrowserOnLastTab or whatever
:3
Nautilus
in FF for Windows (current version) is there a way to tell if a particular tab is making it go to 90+% CPU? It's been happening a lot lately, and the tabs I have open are my usual sites.

MaxHR
Hello, does anyone know a way to make firefox load tab sessions from cache at startup, instead of refreshing each tab? (either by addon or setting)
         

Cork
it does load from cache, if its not to old
MaxHR
Cork I am using ff 3.6.2, it always reloads all my tabs, even recently saved sessions
Cork
MaxHR: has you checked that it actually do any net trafic?
it takes some time to build the dom and rendering the content
MaxHR
Cork: yes, definitely, I am on dialup at home, takes ages to load a session, vs quick when I am elsewhere on wifi
I can see the net activity at home solid... many tabs time out and never load
I believe opera has this behavior, one of the only things I miss from it, Better Cache is the only addon I found that comes close, but not quite
Cork: do you know of a good addon for downloading flash video from embedded players? I have tried several extensions that do this and don't like them, there are alot left to try, would appreciate a recommendation
Cork
i usually use the online sites when i want to download a video
MaxHR
ok, sometimes what I need is only on flash, I download at wifi so I can watch later at home (where there is only dialup)

I am trying to run firefox 3.6 on my centos box but when i execute firefox, it reverts back to 3.0.18. Any ideas how to get this right? ./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
kbrosnan
Caelum: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile
Magicblaze007: where did you get the 3.6 build from?
Caelum
kbrosnan: thank you
Magicblaze007
kbrosnan: from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/upgrade.html
kbrosnan
are you running the firefox script?
Magicblaze007
yes. ./firefox
kbrosnan
Magicblaze007: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.
try that
Magicblaze007
K
did that
it ran, but when i say help->about, i still get 3.0.18
this time it worked
kbrosnan
cent must be setting that globally :/
Magicblaze007
thanks. it works now

hello all, i am a newbie in add-on development & i followed this tutorial https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Firefox_addons_developer_guide/Let%27s_build_a_Firefox_extension, although extension does get loaded but i am not able to find where it has to be executed
l_r
hello
i need to connect to localhost:8123 but firefox blocks my connection for security reasons. this happened since my last upgrade from ubuntu packages. how can i re-enable the permission? there's nothing on the options related to this matter
i am really disappointed with this change as there i s no way to allow the connection to where i want from the gui
kbrosnan
sounds like http://www.mozilla.org/projects/netlib/PortBanning.html
l_r
what a pain
where is the button to access the preferences?
kbrosnan
no such button
l_r
about:config ... found it
franl
Can an administrator insert new CA certs into an already-installed Firefox without the non-admin users being alerted to the change?
kbrosnan
possible using the firefox cck
franl
What's the cck?
kbrosnan
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2553
franl
Thanks. I guess if the APIs are there to let an add-on do it, then someone with admin rights can also do it (even without an add-on).
binom23
my firefox should say that he ist an Internet Explorer. Is this possible?
kbrosnan
you can fools some very basic checks using the user agent switcher extension
fax
hi
how can I disallow websites to fu*k with my clipboard?
like if you select some text and copy it, sometimes the news sites put their URL into it
kbrosnan
disable flash, websites can't access the Firefox clipboard with JS easily
fax
it is JS
I mean it's writing to my clipboard, not (afaict) reading from it
so it's not possible?
ksbalaji
why can't I load https://www.hsbc.co.in/? only ff fails whereas other browsers go through.
is hsbc - bank - against ff?
I don't trust ie. I want only ff to handle my browsing.
kbrosnan
ksbalaji: site loads for me.
possibly http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Cannot+connect+after+upgrading+Firefox

Hi guys. Anyone familier with http://www.mozilla.org/community/mirroring.html?
I want to mirror Mozilla.org but the main server seems really slow and just wondering how I can use another mirror to mirror the main server using rsync?
fax
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Granting+JavaScript+access+to+the+clipboard?bl=n&s=javascript%20clipboard&as=q
this does not seem to have any value
kbrosnan
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bouncer / #bmo on irc.mozilla.org
fax: correct, hence why sites use flash to sidestep those requirements
fax
I don't understand
that sounds evil
but right now I just want to disable javascript from doing this :|
editing the clipboard that is
kbrosnan
it is disabled by default
fax
the only options I have is: Move or resize existing windors, Raise or lower windors, Disable or replace context menus, Hide the status bar, Change status bar text
how can I get Edit the clipboard on there? (to turn it off)
kbrosnan
you must manually whitelist every site to have access to the clipboard via firefox's javascript
fax
kbrosnan,
I don't want to allow any site to edit my clipboard
kbrosnan
which is the default!
fax
this is not default
if I copy text off e.g. here http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/09/the-bosons-that/
it adds "Read More ... url" to my clipboard
kbrosnan
lo and behold, tools > addons > plugins > flash > disable stops that from being added
fax
ohh okay thanks
I was confused because if you turn off javascript it stops..
kbrosnan
which disables javascript communication to plugins
fax
yeah I get it now, thanks for helping me understand
kbrosnan
there might be something you can do with noscript
or yesscript
ksbalaji
got info. HSBC does not support firefox! but circumvented problem by installing agent switcher. Thanks.
zjblabs
the nightly seems to be getting hung up on gmail's javascript
infid
where can i get a list of all the HTTP request headers that firefox sends by default?
kbrosnan
infid: installing livehttpheaders would be a quick way to see
muguruma-kensei
Hello. When I start firefox, I get abnormally large fonts. I think I've changed every possible setting to lower value. What can be wrong ?
kbrosnan
poking in around http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/netwerk/protocol/http/src/nsHttpHandler.cpp#355 if you want to beat your head against the wall
layout.css.dpi?
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, me?
kbrosnan
yes
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, value: -1
kbrosnan
does setting it to 96 help any?
might need a restart
fax
how can I fix flash so that it can't get at the clipboard?
or do you just have to disable it because it's closed source so it cna do whatever the fu*k it wants
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, ff is restarting. was this problem reported by other users?
didn't help :S
infid
thanks kbrosnan
kbrosnan
set that back to -1 then, it was just one possible issue
is the problem in the menus or in the pages themselves
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, in the pages
kbrosnan
does reseting the zoom level to the default help? ctrl + 0
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, yes, definitely
kbrosnan
that helped? or not?
muguruma-kensei
yes, helped
kbrosnan
ok, firefox remembers zoom levels across sessions
muguruma-kensei
I don't think so, I've zoomed to smaller zoom many times and the problem always comes back
hmm or maybe I was just restarting the X Window system
kbrosnan
it can be triggerd easily if you have a touchpad
muguruma-kensei
kbrosnan, it helped. I manually restarted firefox and it remembered the setting. Earlier, I was restrarting it in "hard way", by killing KDE
thanks!
kbrosnan
glad it was something simple, font issues can get thorny
