I'm using "window.location.href = '#movie_find';" in a javascript to make sure my text box is at the top of the window when i get search results back from ajax, but firefox loses focus on the textbox... how do i do it without losing focus... or refocus. if i refocus i need a way to read the url "#" part to know when the page loads that it should focus that field cus "document.getElementById('movie_find').focus();" doesnt seem to work
otherwise. any help?
only reason i ask in here is because it works fine in my phones browser

is there a way to stop the popup alerts when a page tries to play mp3 music? i don't have an mp3 decoder in the browser
kbrosnan
solrize: try disabling the default plugin in tools > options > plugins
solrize
i don't see "options" in the tools menu (this is linux firefox). i ended up using adblock+ to block the .mp3 files
auscompgeek
kbrosnan: you mean Tools > Add-ons > Plugins?
solrize
i do see that

Question for web developers familiar with AJAX: would it ever be necessary to use the js escape() function to prepare data sent by post?

hey, should I use the "Report Broken Website" b/c a website won't let firefox on if it has linux in the user agent string?
auscompgeek
You should really complain to the site admin.
Lord^Anubis
yeah i did, but they said: Hello Unfortunately Linux is not supported on the site. Thank you
pretty lame user agent thing...., firefox works fine, but just if the user agent says what they want
auscompgeek
Lord^Anubis: User Agent Switcher is an extension to allow you to spoof your browser id, and can be found at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59

hi, I use greasemonkey to add and modify content for sites i use often (eg enhance functionality). However, greasemonkey do a post parse/execution. Anyone know of any technique to parse / modify content before it is rendered/displayed?
I have not looked at xul/addons except for some years ago, - suspect that is the way to go?
a bit more tweaky and core, but more control - and pre-render possibilities?

Hello, any developers here?
MrWax
with what shortkey to get to the google search box in firefox on windows?
Trevelyan
I'm having trouble with firefox 3.6.3 on OS X. It wont render http://pastebin.mozilla.org/715266 correctly. The page looks fine in IE, Chrome, Konqueror, Safari, other Firefox versions, and passes w3 validation. Of various A.album (<A CLASS="album" ..>) only a random one or two on the page get broken, the rest are rendered correctly dispite having the same structure...
The actual page is here http://trevelyans.endoftheinternet.org/gallery/trevelyan/view
It seems for the odd random one, the a.album gets immediately closed, and then copies are opened and closed inside the <H3></H3> and around each <IMG> ....
for the rest that come out correct the a.album is not closed automatically by firefox and automatically copied
I could understand that I have done something wrong if firefox was consistent, but a random one or two, different on each page load??

hi, i have a little problem with the ISP in my region .. wondering if any firefox preference/property configuration could help ..
.. after connecting, i get redirected to my ISP's page no matter what URL i enter .. it's a silly http redirect header from the ISP ..
.. can i configure firefox to ignore such http redirects for a particular domain?

hi..is there a compatible add on for opening tabs relative in ff3.6?
kbrosnan
it does that by default
bobsaccamano
kbrosnan, eh..no..im on linux
kbrosnan
it does
bobsaccamano
kbrosnan, well, its not. Which is why im here
kbrosnan
is firefox from your distro or downloaded from Mozilla/
bobsaccamano
distro
ubuntu
kbrosnan
about:config, browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent should be true
bobsaccamano
kbrosnan, hmm..it is
kbrosnan
explaing what exactly you are doing might be helpful
bobsaccamano
okay..when i open a new tab (using the toolbar button), it opens at the end
kbrosnan
that is expected
bobsaccamano
(Action) scratches his head..
kbrosnan
look into tab mix plus, tab kit, or one of the many other tab related extensions
for more fine grained control over tabs
bobsaccamano
kbrosnan, thanks mate, you've been helpful

is it possible to possition window by userChrome.css? some combination of window + screenX ?
kbrosnan
i don't think so. firefox stores window possions in localstore.rdf
Nickwiz
ok, Thank you. user.js then? - what i want is new windows always possitioned screenX=0. When using widescreen it is often no use for full width, and use "left over" for other apps eg. shell. Problem is that on win(XP at least) new windows are xPixels more to the right then previous - cascading.
kbrosnan
not user.js either
Nickwiz
ok. I have it in a extension overaly with bunch of other tweaks. Leave it there for now...

Is there a way to use the Bookmarks bar the RSS reader? Instead of having a menu in the Bookmarks bar

no?
I guess I'll just stick around to watch people ask questions

hello
my firefox went crazy lately... a very weird behaviour
like, i use it for a good 20-30 mins
then it does start to eat up memory more and more
to the point that 1gb is used ...
no new extensions... only core updated, happens identically with all exts disabled
any idea ?

what do you use for syncing bookmarks ? i tried weave and it sucks
frantik
export/import.
at least between 2 firefox :P
kbrosnan
i've only used weave, works well for me. sucks does not really explain anything
frantik
i dont sync bookmarks
when i had a pro comp, i did keep home bookmarks at home

i have no idea how this got started and its not on any of my computers, but in firefox, every time i click on an image link that will load just an image (the address bar is http://www.google.com/image.jpg), it opens up fullscreen with a black background.

tried to launch in safe mode ?

kbrosnan
sure

hi, does anyone know what's wrong with firefox if it doesn't open any dialogue boxes such as "save page" in mac os x?
does anyone else think firefox is getting more and more buggy or is it just me?
naquad
kbrosnan: it seems it's unable to save only 1 element from page :( whole page only
kbrosnan
emc: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic+troubleshooting safe mode/new profile are good troubleshooting steps

Hi
is it possible to define a default window for tabs opened by external applications ?
kbrosnan
they will open in the most currently touched window
_5moufl
is there a possibility, similar to F11 (fullscreen) to show only the webpage in a window with no bars or menus

Is it normal that, when i scan a barcode with my barcode ready in firefox it opens the "Downloads" window ? :D
poutine
Miouge, How are we supposed to know what control codes your barcode scanner sends as HID input (assuming that's what's going on)?
Miouge
the barcode reader act as a keyboard, no problems with IE 6 (winXP), or Firefox 3.6 in Linux, or epiphany on Linux, that's why it's weird :D
have any idea on how i could get more information on what's happening ?
poutine
Miouge, I just said
it's sending control codes as HID input
which happens to match FF's keyboard shortcuts to show the downloads screen
Miouge
yes i suppose :)
poutine
hit 'control+j'
that's what's happening
exactly.
Miouge
the driver used on linux & windows isn't the same so that could explain this behaviour i suppose ?

firefox is the best
