<~Kovensky> firefox won't let me use my "Local" profile
<~Kovensky> because it's already being used by another process
<~Kovensky> the thing: Local is always on the local disk
<~Kovensky> the firefox that's using that profile is running on another computer
<~Kovensky> another computer's local disk != this computer's local disk
<~Kovensky> therefore, local profile actually isn't being used, only the same name is :V
this profile locking thing is really annoying when working on multiple computers on the same domain with folder redirection >_>

why not take a leaf from Portable Firefox and stick an ini file into the Firefox directory allowing multiple Firefox sessions?
zapnap
any extension authors here? any idea how to get the current document url from within an extension?
top.window.location appears to return the chrome:// url
nm got it
window._content.document.location.href appears to do the trick

What does this error mean: ** (firefox-bin:4322): WARNING **: Serious fd usage error 14 ?

Hmm, for Firefox on Windows... if I install the 3.6.3 (with plugin isolation) beta, will the system forever thereafter try to install betas?
brlancer
DanaG: I don't think so
beta and release candidates will offer to upgrade to production releases
but I've never had one want to upgrade to another beta or RC
naquad
hi
is there any way to make firefox work with ipv6?

Anybody have segmentation faults with firefox on Ubuntu karmic?

The Lorentz page say that the multi-process plugin feature is only available to Windows and Linux, what programming challenges not allow it to work in OSX?
says architectural differences, but that doesn't provide much information ;p

if i try to search something thru the address bar of firefox, i get this error: Firefox can't find the file in jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/extensions/langpack-pt-PT@firefox-3.6.ubuntu.com/chrome/pt-PT.jar!/locale/browser-region/region.properties.
kbrosnan
backup your ~/.mozilla folder then sudo apt-get purge firefox xulrunner then sudo apt-get install firefox xulrunner
o_portista17
ok, will try that
thanks

hi people! I'm running firefox 3.5.9 on ubuntu karmic 64bit, and having troubles with the sound stuff. The thing is, all the sound should go through pulseaudio, but firefox either directly accesses the sound card, or uses alsa, but not through pulseaudio, and the other apps using pulseaudio cannot get access to the soundcard while I'm playing sound on firefox. any suggestions, please?
         

kbrosnan
plugins use their own code for sound
progre55
oh, I see
then I should try to reinstall the flashplugin

kbrosnan

140.90.33.31 where as fireftp thinks the address is 192.168.51.103 which is an internal ip
gargrk72

kbrosnan
maybe sudo /etc/init.d/nscd restart

hey all.
I am working with foxyproxy, and need to figure out a way to create users with their settings pre-set in the proxy. Unfortunately, the proxy file is stored in ~/.mozilla/firefox/<random_characters>.default/foxyproxy.xml
how can I put this file in a skel in order to create new users with the file already existing in their home directory?
Oh. I am running ubuntu 9.10
kbrosnan
gargrk72: not sure
_UsUrPeR_: ...lib/firefox/defaults/profile
_UsUrPeR_
:O
lemme try that
gargrk72
ok.. thanks kbrosnan. i u find some sol. pl post me at gargrk72@gmail.com
_UsUrPeR_
kbrosnan: so that I understand this properly, are you saying that firefox references all files in /etc/firefox-3.5/profile/ when it starts up?
darkis
Hello
again
_UsUrPeR_
(that's the symlink from usr/lib/firefox-3.5.8/default/profile
)

vinnie_
i am running firefox 3.6.3 from ubuntuzilla repos on a linux mint kde box. My spell checker is not working. Can someone please assist me in resolving this matter?
xangua
you need to install it from mozilla's addonsweb
kbrosnan
_UsUrPeR_: the files in that folder are used to create new profiles assuming one does not exist
_UsUrPeR_
kbrosnan: excellent
thank you very much
vinnie_
xangua: what addon am i looking for?
xangua
vinnie_: dictionaries section
vinnie_
xangua: i already have the united states english dictionary 4.0 installed in my firefox extensions. Is there something else i need?
kbrosnan
the english (en-US) dictionary is installed by default
aleperalta
Hello, where can I get past version of Firefox (I need 2.0); for support reasons.
kbrosnan
ftp.mozilla.org , however user should be upgraded if they are using windows 2000 or later
addtionally Firefox 2 usage is somewhere under 2% so supporting it should not effect too many users
aleperalta
kbrosnan: thanks
