i dunno if this matters at all
but going to an itunes link always crashes FF (i'm using 3.5; haven't tested 3.6 yet)
does this crash for anyone else? `firefox -safe-mode http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/somebody-elses-guy-dons-radio/id339990652?i=339990833&ign-mpt=uo%3D6`
you have to not have itunes installed; it doesn't crash chrome
rjohnson19
Not for me on 3.6. If you get a Mozilla Crash Reporter dialog, can you paste the latest crash report from about:crashes?
Dominicus
Does anyone know of a Firefox Addon that can let me monitor the utilization of all the other addons I have loaded, to find out which are the biggest contributors to sowing it down?
auscompgeek
XUL Profiler?
mdik
hi. is it standardbehaviour, that the cursor doesn't autofocus on the url-bar after startup? (iceweasel 3.5.8 on debian/unstable)
Dominicus
auscompgeek: Yes, that was the addon I was using previously. however, it hasn'e been updated for FF 3.6, and was last updated in May 2009 according to the author's repository system.

a file upload form works in IE but not in Firefox. How do I detect what mime-type firefox is thinking the file is?
netbook
When I open a php file on my computer, firefox prompts to DL the php file, not to display it.... why?
EoN
netbook: sounds like your server isn't correctly configured to serve the php file?
netbook: does it work with other browsers?

pereba2
Any firefox 3.7.x compatible greasemonkey version is out?

mohadib_

pereba2
ff 3.7a3
mohadib_
window manager?
or is it a setting in ff?
pereba2
no idea really
mohadib_
aight, thanks :)
pereba2

mohadib_
lol
i get a warning i might void my warranty
thats a new one
pereba2
lol
it's ok
mohadib_
i got a bunch of mousewheel stuff
pereba2

comhero

minefield will automagically upgrade to the final once it is released (and stay in the non-trunk channel)? or are trunk builds always trunk builds while doing automatic upgrades?
pereba2
good question
mohadib_
just needed to turn on autoscroll
thanks
pereba2
you can change the update channel any time with this addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6263
         

comhero
thanks pereba2, that solved my problem.
pereba2
default, beta, release, nightly...
you are welcome
zjblabs
pereba2: looks like a nice addon
does that mean it will downgrade you if I were to select the default channel?
pereba2
good question again
lol
zjblabs
heh, and would that also mean that I could have a minefield installation that defaulted it's installation directory to C:\Program Files\Firefox instead of \Minefield (on windows)
pereba2
I have no idea because I use trunk build always that nor I noticed that
zjblabs
pereba2: I just was attracted by the news of the "oopp"
pereba2
good question againĀ²
really sorrryyyy
rjohnson19
It won't downgrade you. Also the default channel basically means "no automatic updates." It'll give you the latest update on the channel that you are on, if it is > what you have now.
pereba2
I always use portable edition
zjblabs
rjohnson19: ok
apparently the update channel selector is incompatible with 3.7a3pre
pereba2
no problem
zjblabs
pereba2: indeed, I just need to find that one addon...
pereba2
install MR Tech Toolkit to bypass this limitation
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/421
zjblabs
just found that :D
lmfao: "MR Tech Toolkit 6.0.4 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Minefield 3.7a3pre."
pereba2
ahahahahahhahahahahah
zjblabs
I'll just repackage the addon
pereba2
zjblabs, alternative https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6543
rjohnson19
You could also turn compatibility checking off, see http://tinyurl.com/y8quwpq
pereba2
I'm using 3.7a3pre too, but greasemonkey is not fully compatible yet :(
zjblabs
does the addon number at the end of the url indicate the relative time that the original version of each addon was published?
intok
in 3.5.3 on ubuntu is there a way to force all but .torrent filetypes to use the "Download Them All 1.1.8" addon by default? I know the whole deal of using the checkbox in the prompt, but that doesn't seem to want to work on file hosting sites like rapidshare or megashares or what have you, it still pops up the prompt, even with the checkbox checked so that unless I'm really quick on the draw I can't use DLTA as the download k
b0nghitter
is it possible to set the default IP that ff uses in linux?
JohannesSM64
anyone got a generic css theme for white text on black background?
getting tired of blinding white web pages :p
kbrosnan
JohannesSM64: i'd check out userscripts.org and userstyles.org
JohannesSM64
thanks.
more specifically, i'd like something that will make "plain" pages like http://www.faqs.org/docs/artu/ more readable.
kbrosnan
the color's section of content options/prefs
JohannesSM64
wow, really
(Action) facepalms hugely
thanks!

Hello, looking for an addon that will allow me to save one or more sessions permanently, and manage them, anybody know of such a thing that has better control than the built in session saver?
also looking for a way to quick restore session, starting all tabs from cache, instead of reloading when firefox starts
damian

hey I'm using forefox 3.6 and installed the wrong theme, it was one of the aero themes and now the main part of the box is clear showing straight through to the desktop. any way to undo the theme from outside of firefox?
a vista aero theme
Id ask on the web instead of here but I can't see the main screen in the browser, its like a cutout straight to the desktop
NishaKitty
hi I'm installing themes on firefox 3.6 and it seems to only remember a certain count of themes
which is really annoying cause if I get new themes it writes over my old themes
as far as I can tell it only remembers 8 and starts writing over my old ones
by themes I mean personas as well
since they're called personas in some spots and themes in others which is confusing
ruepel0r
hello

I want to go back to parent of parent of parent etc. and to its children again. Is it possible to do such sort of navigation?
any addon that helps me do it?

Looking for a speech generator addon that is able to read web pages to me. What do you recommend?
rjohnson19
sbrothy
Why can't I install themes in fire
in iceweasel
iceweasel sorry
brlancer
sbrothy: You need to provide more information. What happens when you try to install themes?
kbrosnan
Grobb: operating system?
ryomanolonger
is there an extension that lets you use a proxy or tor for only one site and not for others?
sbrothy
brlancer: Nothing. The buttons are simpy grayed out.
kbrosnan
so they are installed into the addons manager?
sbrothy
I've tried to change the useragent info under "about:config" but that didnt help either.
brlancer
sbrothy: which buttons?
sbrothy
I presumed there was a button for listing addons under "AddOns" -> "Themes"...
Yes. "Find Updates"
but its disabled
brlancer
sbrothy: If the theme (or other add-on) was installed system-wide, it has to be updated system-wide
using the system package manager
sbrothy
ah....
brlancer
if you install a new one just for your user, you will be able to update it
sbrothy
I see...
I thougt the search for themes was integrated into the browser itself
I seem to remember downloading them like that
brlancer
you can install themes (and other add-ons) via the browser; if they're installed via the system/distribution, the browser can't change them
if you installed something via the browser, you should be able to update it
sbrothy
I didnt instaqll anything via system or distro.
and I cant seemoh now i understand
a "theme" is just a normal "addon" till I actually install it
brlancer
a theme is a type of add-on
it won't show in the browser until it's installed
what distribution are you running?
sbrothy
Yes, but I thought i was supposed to browse and install themes from the "theme" tab under "add-ons"
debian
here we go...
brlancer
You can; you can also search on addons.mozilla.org
sbrothy
I think it works now.
brlancer
awesome
sbrothy
Yes. Beautiful. :)
thank bye bye
