Hey, is there any bugs (or "security") in firefox 3.6 that disallow javascript popup windows manipulating their parent window?
methods2
how do i restore my last session ? there use to be a ui element for that in Tools... i somehow lost all my tabs and can't restore them
tommjames
anybody know why autocomplete doesn't work in google, on ubuntu?
syrius
tommjames means the suggestions that google offers of what users most commonly search for on google
like what is the most common "how to" search combination
tommjames
yeah, actually "Google Suggest" is the official name i think
i check in google account settings and its enabled
*checked
syrius
I don't think that is the problem tommjames
I have an account with google and I don't login with google via web browser or store cookies for firefox
and I get the suggestions just fine
also I don't send referrer headers to google either
well I meant I don't store cookies for google on firefox
tommjames
u can disable google suggest in ur account settings
im just saying, i havnt done that
so no, its not the problem
syrius
o okay
I didn't know that
I don't usually use google settings
tommjames
the weird thing is it doesn't work in chrome either
dammit
         

nnnnn

I like PC's
A Mac is a PC too
However
I don't like Mac's
Speaking to complete strangers is nice
I like to use computers
especially if they got firefox on them
and sound drivers
I like sound
I like country music
Its so nice
Chris_
kbrosnan: Thanks for the links. I have been down that road before and it's no quite all of what I need. Do you know of anybody that might have the skills and time to help me on a project?
AlienDK
Hi Chris

AlienDK
Do you want to be bored?

AlienDK: it would be nice, but that hasn't happened in 10 years
AlienDK
I don't like being bored

Does anybody know what it takes to FULLY rebrand FF and T-Bird? I got most of it done but I'm finding there is a lot of loose ends. For it to be true rebrand it would also have to have a new URL for the update service among many other things.
AlienDK
Why do you want to rebrand it?
Chris_
I also noticed that the userchrome mods that may change certain things on FF3.6 don't work correctly on T-Bird 3...but these same mods work fine on t-bird 2.
AlienDK
Why do you ignore me?:(
Chris_
AlienDK: what's up?
AlienDK
Please don't ignore me
I dislike it :(
Why do you want to rebrand FF and tbird?
Chris_
AlienDK: corporate resons
reasons
AlienDK
like what?
Chris_
changes that need to be made wouldn't be approved by Mozilla
AlienDK
like what?
Chris_
Flowers and Yard debris...they don't like that stuff
AlienDK
eh?
You don't like me
I dislike that
I'm thirsty
Chris_
When you click on HOME it can't say "Hey...what's that smell" It must be presented in a clear bathroom on a major interstate highway, otherwise it's no good.
AlienDK
You're weird
I'm weird too
MAYBE!
extor
I want to retrieve a jpg file which I suspect is still in my cache, how would I do that?
Peng
extor: Poke through about:cache (it's an URL), I guess./
extor
oh but is the cache saved as actual jpg files?
yeah it was an url
Peng
Some of it is.
extor
Where exactly are the cache settings? I want to increase my cache size I cannot seem to find the place
sadly there were just a few tiny megs of cache :(

hello. a few days ago i came across an addon that supposedly was able to remember the password on sites that prevented it from being saved. for some reason i can't seem to find it anymore now. does anyone have an idea what its name might be?
xangua
lastpass¿¿ well...that's a pasword manager. i don't think you are looking fot that
rjohnson19
Isil`Zha: This one maybe? http://www.gadgetadvisor.com/computer-software/recommended-firefox-extensions. Theres also a bookmarklet that does the same thing.
Isil`Zha
rjohnson19: thanks. in my search i came across this too. and as far as i recall it had issues to work fith version 3. but i remember seeing the one i'm actually looking for on the official addons page. too bad i didn't have a closer look at that instance.
rjohnson19
Its possible it got taken off, I wouldn't have any idea why though.

It is time to put those Haitian jigaboos in their place! No matter how many times the civilized world donates money, opens schools, rebuilds their nation, and holds their little monkey paws, the damn niggers can never get it right. They never will! The same goes for New Orleans! Cancun in Mexico suffered few fatalities after their major hurricane, and the rebuilding is already completed. Wha
t have the niggers in New Orleans done? If you are sick of this, join Chimpout Forum! http://www.chimpout.com/forum We welcome all races except for NIGGGGGGGERS! We are not white supremacists, just negro inferiorists! http://www.chimpout.com/forum

thanks
Peng
Lucky I happened to be watching this channel.
xangua
it's the same guy that came to #ubuntu-es; it would be relevant to inform in #freenode for a kline¿¿
(Action) reading the diference between ban and kline
Peng
Bans are per-channel. Klines are not.
On *most* networks, klines are per-server and glines cover the entire network. On Freenode, klines cover the entire network and there are ny glines. Shrug.
xangua: Khazar is actually talking in #freenode right now. That's spooky.

how can I add a custom search to the saerch toolbar? i want to add something like site:mysite.com ${term} to the google search
cryptic0
new versions of firefox (since 3.5) has a problem: When you're saving a file, if you create a new folder, the folder isn't opened by default. So you gotta open it manually. I think that stupid. Why did they make this change?
Isil`Zha
cryptic0: it does open it for me
cryptic0
linux or win32?
Isil`Zha
cryptic0: linux
cryptic0
tell me your exact version
Isil`Zha
2.6.31-r6
cryptic0
bingo
thats too old
old version used to open folders by default
Isil`Zha
why should firefox be affected by the linux version?
cryptic0
it stopped doing that after 3.5
Isil`Zha
oh you mean firefox version
thatÄs 3.6
*that's
cryptic0
hmmmm, now I am puzzled
Isil`Zha
you have the gtk file dialogue?
cryptic0
yes
Isil`Zha
hmm. me too
Random_person_21
hey, why does the Firefox error console say that my vars are not defined? for example, i have var t; and the error console cannot evaluate "t"
Isil`Zha
i'll try to find out what version i have
cryptic0
also, I can't find anything in the preferences to that effect

Help me

I try to set width on a div tag, but it does not have any effect on the text.
What is the most likely reason for that?

lyhana8
hi, sometimes my firefox refuse to install addons, how could I do it manually ?
EdoDodo
lyhana8: Why does it refuse to install them?
lyhana8
EdoDodo: no idea, I get the dialog box with the timer, but when I clic 'Install' nothing happen
EdoDodo
lyhana8: Hmm, very odd
lyhana8: Sorry but I've never had that issue so never tried installing an addon manually, let me check around a bit to see if I can figure out how it works
lyhana8: http://www.accessfirefox.org/Install_Addon_Manually.php

i can't find a channel for firebug. any hint?

try in mozilla.irc.org

irc.mozilla.org ***
jum, he went
lyhana8
EdoDodo: all those technique use firefox, their are a bit useless here. I was hoping that unzip the xpi in the extension would be enough :S
EdoDodo
lyhana8:Well you're going to have a hard time installing something in Firefox without using Firefox
lyhana8: There's at least a few of those that shouldn't cause a dialog box to pop up and therefore shouldn't cause you any problems
lyhana8
EdoDodo: the dialog box I'm talking about is the one that pop up when installing an addons
EdoDodo
lyhana8: Yeah just checked a few of them and none of them actually override that dialog box
lyhana8: Closest I can find to disabling that dialog box is disabling the wait for it
lyhana8: http://www.tipstrs.com/tip/5686/Remove-the-plug-in-install-countdown-on-Firefox
lyhana8
EdoDodo: I manage to install the addons, but it work one on a tenth :S
EdoDodo
lyhana8: Hmm it's very odd

EdoDodo: totally
EdoDodo
lyhana8: There might be a way to manually install an addon to the profile directory but I don't know enough about the inner workings of Firefox to tell you how
lyhana8
EdoDodo: XPI are simple zip file so I though that extracting them in the my extension folder would be enough but it doesn't work :S
TannerF
Don't click that link that Onetimer sent... please
