is this the place for thunderbird questions (#thunderbird is empty)
rjohnson19
lbt: #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org is empty? Or are you saying nobody answered?
lbt
ah, on freenode
rjohnson19
Yeah, irc.mozilla.org is the place you want to go for support with Tb, Chatzilla, etc.
lbt
'k thanks....

hi, I have a question regarding the mozilla weave addon
is this the right channel for that kind of question?
My problem with weave is, that I've setup to only sync my bookmarks
and *not* my passwords
my password store is secured with a master password
now, when I try to connect within weave, it prompts me for my master password
Why does weave need access to my master password, if I don't want to sync my passwords with it?
TannerF
mbiebl: It stores your weave password in the password manager, afaik

Oh dear, everyone saw my IP&
West
haha
I didn't see nothing. :x
Just pm me the site and we will forgot all about it. :D
auscompgeek
I can't believe I revealed my IP to over 525 freenode users, at least I get a new IP every time I reconnect to the internet :D

haha

#thunderbird channel seems dead - anyone here know if there's a way to disable tabs completely in Thunderbird? I hate the new search system that launches new tabs with results!
auscompgeek
Smashcat, did you connect to irc.mozilla.org before joining #thunderbird?
Smashcat
Ah no, I'm only on Freenode here. Thanks.
auscompgeek
np ;)
rdg
is there a way to make it so new tabs open at the last tab instead of opening up next to the tab I was just in
Peng
rdg: Yes. There's a preference in about:config, but I always forget the name.
rdg
hopefully I can guess it
Peng
rdg: browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent
ack-grep++
rdg
haha was just about to ask if that was it
thanks peng

hi all
i'd like to configure maximum and download upload speed in firefox. nice to see some plugins as solution

ubuntu-usr: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5917
ubuntu-usr
it's what i'm looking for but it's windows related. i need linux/ubuntu solution
EdoDodo
ubuntu-usr: Well I don't know of a plugin specifically for Firefox that do that, but there might be some standalone applications that could be useful
ubuntu-usr: If you're interested in getting a standalone application to throttle bandwidth these two links might help you
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=899690
http://www.tuxradar.com/content/control-your-bandwidth-trickle
ubuntu-usr
i wouldn't make mess inside my system. hope i shouldn't compile any linux kernel modules
EdoDodo
ubuntu-usr: If you're only interested in throttling downloads and don't mind if web usage isn't throttled then perhaps a download manager could help you
ubuntu-usr: DownThemAll! is a download manager built into firefox as an addon
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/201
ubuntu-usr
cool
but movies on yt / youtube.com will use full throttle what i'd like to left
EdoDodo
ubuntu-usr: Hmm... then without an addon that is compatible with Linux I think a standalone application is the only way forwards
ubuntu-usr: Trickle doesn't look it messes too much with the system
ubuntu-usr
my brother makes mess when i'm watchin' yt movies, he can't do anything. maybe any other browser is solution, but 1sti shoul pick up trickle
EdoDodo
ubuntu-usr: I don't know much about Linux software though so perhaps you should ask on ##linux or some other linux-dedicated channel
ubuntu-usr
in my case best is #ubuntu but these guys left me with the problem. sad is that download managers have option to setup threshold, but browser itself not
EdoDodo
ubuntu-usr: Yeah, well trickle should do what you need since it can limit any application you want it to
ubuntu-usr: The post I linked to explains it pretty well but if you have any questions I probably won't be able to answer them since I havn't used Linux much
ubuntu-usr
ok, on #ubuntu i will ask about trickle

hello everybody hopefully all are well today I just noticed when I uncovered my terminal {which is how I got FF to safemode} that there seem to be some messages there regarding the browser & I was wondering if anybody could explain them to me.
the gist of the messages go something like this...(firefox:6268): Gdk-WARNING **: GdkWindow 0x3202de9 unexpectedly destroyed {&} 0x3202de8,de5,de4,de3,de2. {&} (firefox:6268): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

how do you download extensions that are not compatible with your browser / browser version / operating system?
the button they have is disabled and I don't see anyway to download it

I am using Namoroka 3.6.2pre and adding extensions.checkCompatibility.3.6pre has no effect. How do I disable extension checking?
