Hi.
robot_jesus
is there a firefox plugin channel? I'd like to know if its possible to write a plugin that handles file extensions, and opens firefox to a website. as i write that I realize that sounds like a terrible idea nevermind

Something weird has lately started happening for me, in both Firefox and Thunderbird:
It will often ask me two times, at the same time, for my master password... and no matter which of the two prompts I enter it into, it ALWAYS rejects it -- even if it's absolutely correct.
And then, the second time I enter it, it's accepted (and "enter" dismisses the third remaining prompt).

has anyone here worked out the gmail html5 drag and drop functionality with firefox in linux?
sybariten
hi
has there ever been any initiative to allow browsers to take arguments in the form of usernames, to go into a form? like , a webnmail login
or is this simply something i have missed?
HTML would have to be aware of this function i suppose
clever
http already has an auth system in it
but its not that secure in that it sends the name/pw in every request
and it adds latency because the browser wont send it until it gets an error saying its needed
most home routers use that method
jmut
is there any plugin that I can see all events that occur on page?

kbrosnan

Hey, can somebody tell me: Can I set-up Firefox so that if I write something in the address field that is not an URL, it does a Google search (instead of going directly to the first result)?
kbrosnan
change the keyword.url in about:config
SilentAssassin
how do i disable cookies caching
         

Cork
cookie cache??
what do you mean?
disable cookies?
SilentAssassin
yeah
Cork
tools > options > privacy, change Firefox will: to "Use custom settings for history
then uncheck "Accept cookies from sites"
warning though, that loads of sites doesn't work if you do that
jmut
kbrosnan: better thank later than never :) . thanks
Lademord
thanks kbrosnan! :D

something happened and now youtube quicklist is lost on quitting/saving and quiting
10 min ago i had 43 videos on YT quiclist and FF crashed and all quiclist is gone. its crashing randomly on even not doing anything after update 3weeks ago. im on ubuntu

If I access a php file on a misconfigured server, I'll get a download popup. When I then fix PHP on that server, firefox will not allow me to refresh that PHP file - I still get the download from cache. Is there a way to force firefox to re-request the file, like ctrl+refresh for usual pages?
kbrosnan
ctrl + shift + r will bypass the cache
Martin_vW
kbrosnan: not for downloads, unfortunately. As soon as I type the URL in the location box and press return, a download window pops up; if I close that, the site displayed in the browser frame is still the old one and ctrl+shift+r will refresh only that page.
kbrosnan
adding &foo might allow you to load the new file, else clear the cache
Martin_vW
yes, that ?foo seems to be a nice trick, thx
Kangarooo
i made more tests and found why quiclist wasnt lost before. couse i was having many tabs and saved and quit. also in preferences putting to open last tabs then also quicklist isnt lost
that should be also for just quitting. why on quit i loose quiclist?

Quatroking
Hello
Quick question, I participated in the betatesting of 3.6.4, does this mean I automatically participate in betatesting the next version?
Or do I have to download a new beta client
kbrosnan
Quatroking: you will get any beta quality updates. you are on the beta update channel
Quatroking
Alrighty
So, when the next beta comes out, I'll update to it automatically?
kbrosnan
for the 3.6.x releases yes
Quatroking
sweet.

hello
I have windows 7 and fireofx 3.6.3 and when I add addons and configure it, and then I close firefox, and then I run ccleaner and retart firefox, it will NOT save my profile information at all
I typed firefox.exe -ProfileManager and created a profile on a seperate disk/parition used as Users/home drive
I then loaded the profile with firefox.exe -P "Profile Name"
When I go to the actual profile directory, its all there
but Firefox will NOT load it after being closed
I can't fiure out why
anyone?
hello
firefox will not save my profile after it closes
I restart firefox and none of my changes are saved
I've reinstalled many times
is it broken?
should I get a diff version?
I'm afraid to use it again
if I use it, I will change settings and add an addon or two
then if I close firefox, and restart it, everything will be gone
SO WTF!?
kbrosnan
ajavid: does it work correctly if you don't use ccleaner?
ajavid
no
ccleaner isn't the issue
I figured that
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager
create profile
choose folder
select U:\Profiles
Profile Name = Atir
crated
blick start firefox
click*
go to addons
install adblock plus
ok
after I restartd I even ran ccleaner
it seems to keep the settting so far
now check out the location I wanted to use
create new profile called User in T:\Firefox Profiles\ (T is used at Temp drive)
Windows Env Vars are set to use T:\ as TMP TEMP WINDOWS TEMP and USER TEMP
start firefox with User profile created on temp
install adblock
click restart firefox
its here
quit firefox
ran cllaner
and the only option slected in cclaner is to wipe out firefox cache, nothing else, keep all cookies, db everything
run cclane
rstart firefox
it asks for profile
I chose USer (on temp)
and the addon is gone.
firefox saved ntohing
also, the profile directory on T:\Firefox Profiles is intact
everything is still there
the profile on the other disk is fine
kbrosnan
i would not be supprised to find that ccleaner clears your %temp% folder
ajavid
well I'm trying to figure all this out and properly setup
I had a 500GB disk die on my lst night
I'm not too happy
sorr if i seem short on patience and fristrated
been through much more than just cmoputer stuff lately.
kbrosnan
then i suggest finding a ccleaner community
ajavid
no
I have to redo my temp en vars
firefox and ccleaner are ok
volve
hey all, I may have some funky html tags and I'd love to fix them, but lately I've noticed in Firebug that Firefox seems to be adding <b></b> all of the place, usually prefixing every line of certain elements... is this known? How can I determine the cause?
ajavid
I Think I got it
I had created a 8GB parition at the end of disk for temp storage
I moved all temp vars to C:\temp wher eI had this mounted volume
but i changed it to T:\temp and removed the mountpoint for C:\temp
for T:\
shouldn't cause a problem anymore on T:\Firefox Profiles
as that doesn't fall in the scope of %temp% anymore
so lets find out
I'm so fu*king pissed off ! sorry for the f bomb but man... 500GB disk gone.
:(
I had backups, but still a nuisance
brb restart
man
kbrosnan
volve: depens on your code, Firefox will make it sane for its parser
ajavid
it is so much easier to manage your profiles on freebsd
windows ugh. goddamit
anyway brb
volve
kbrosnan: I understand, and if it were me missing a closing <b> it would make sense, but FF is literally adding empty pairs all over the place and I can't figure out where the problem is. The error console doesn't mention it either... :/
ajavid
back
yup
kbrosnan: that was it
kbrosnan: thanks for the tip on %temp%
(I would have eventually thought of it)

gavin: ping
ajavid
you're a life saver man
thank you so much

I recently uninstalled an addon and I can't remember what the name was. Is there any way to determine what it was? (addon history perhaps?)
MWF
john-michael: I don't think so.
john-michael
It was a plugin that would record a mp3 from any music player on a web page. Familiar with that?
