can anyone tell me why i can't post to the commentary at usatoday.com? i thought that it was my noscript plugin but i turned it off and i still can't post. this all started after installing the latest firefox (3.6.3) from tarball (mandriva 2010.0)
saksham
any1 here?
mzz
nope.
ki7rw
i guess no one has a solution to my problem? it sucks to upgrade to something that is broken

hey, my website got flagged as a phishing site
so how many reports does it take for a site to be added to the blacklist? my site got popular and then all of a sudden bam, marked as phishing
red
heya, anyone using 3.7a5 with ubuntu 10.4? my browser crashes on any site with flash content so i disabled flashplugin for now
(I have the latest flash-plugin from the adobe sites .deb)
AngryParsley
btw, the url is http://ismycreditcardstolen.com/
red
already tested with every other extension/plugin disabled except for flash
AngryParsley
it's a freaking joke site. view the source and you'll see the CC inputs aren't part of the form. they're never sent across the wire
and click the submit button without entering data. it's a giant page warning you about phishing
         

red
nobody has any clues what I should try? :p
apart from just jusing 3.6 obviously
AngryParsley
red: switch to chrome? </joke>
red
I mostly due actually
just due the fast launch speed
AngryParsley
ditto
red
BUT, Flash performance in Chrome is a lot worse than in Firefox
AngryParsley
although chrome on linux is really annoying. backspace doesn't go back in history anymore :/
red
so I always have Firefox running aswell for youtube/a few flash games I'm addicted to
JSharpe
lol AngryParsley
red
(Action) curses Adobe to deepest hell
JSharpe
I can see why it is flagged,
AngryParsley
JSharpe: ?
oh, yes I can too
getting an ssl cert was hard
had to shop around
red
it's quite odd how they can mess the plugin up so badly on linux side, when it's developed on mac
one could assume the porting to be easier and simpler vs. windows :p
JSharpe
AngryParsley, you seem the be very angry over something so silly
AngryParsley
well the problem is that lots of sites use the firefox phishing blacklist
like twitter
so nobody can tweet about it
JSharpe
"HEY GUYS i FOUND A COOL SITE THAT TELLS ME IF MY CREDIT CARD DETAILS ARE STOLE *link*"
red
:D
AngryParsley
well most of the tweets realize it's a joke
JSharpe
the other part, that aren't in the group 'most' are the ones that thought it was a fraud site
AngryParsley
right. and they reported it as phishing :(
JSharpe
you answered yourself there
         

AngryParsley
when my goal is the opposite
and there's no recourse
JSharpe
very nice scheme you got going
AngryParsley
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/16/20100423/ttc-security-group-creates-educational-p-6315470.html
JSharpe
I could do the same for drugs, "HEY, TRY SOME DRUGS, HERE U GO, CRACK; ON THE HOUSE. OOPS, THIS WAS A TEST! BUT YOUR DEAD NOW, HERE'S THE BAD SIDES ABOUT DRUGS"
AngryParsley
bwahahha, if by "working group" you mean "some friends/coworkers who got drunk one night" then yes
JSharpe
When I went onto the link and put in random information into the fields, I still failed the test
AngryParsley
yeah, sorry about that. I didn't want to do any form validation
the less touching of potentially important credit card data, the better
JSharpe
like that would make a difference
AngryParsley
well if I did server-side validation, it would
JSharpe
you already created a site with the intent of the user to input details into the form and continue
but anyway, I sent a report back saying that the site is not a phishing site

Got a Q about the bookmark toolbar, anyway to extent it to 2 rows instead of clicking on the most left arrow to see all of youe bookmarks?
Peng
msaadn: Have you checked Google? Lots of people want that, and I think there are a few solutions.
msaadn
I couldn't think of proper keywords to search, so I didn't get any result.
I found one.
Peng
Try "multi-row bookmarks toolbar".
msaadn
Yes, That is the one I found.

bmomjian
Can anyone tell my why the border is appearing along the left and top of this image? http://momjian.us/
This started with Firefox 3.5 on Ubuntu
Ah, I found it is a known bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=513651

Hi. Im working on a firefox extension. I need to react to firefox loading a certain webpage (on any tab, including background) and alter it. so far I did that by attaching a DOMContentLoaded event to gBrowser. but ContentLoaded is too late, I need my javascript running as soon as firefox has rendered the <head> part of the page. any ideas?

I have a comet connection with a server. how can I watch the connection in firebug?
I see one of the GET requests growing in size as more data arrives, but I can't see the data anywhere
it's like Firebug thinks the connection is complete
Thell
My FF just started being slow to respond, so I took a quick look and noted it was using just under 1GB memory! For < 40 tabs! I've installed a few new plugins over the last few days, as well as had a few java pages up, and had had > 100 tabs this morning (slowly whittling away at them)
Is there a way to determine what plugins/pages are using up the memory?
Without going throught the whole disable/enable shuffle

hey is there somehting like the plugin for youtube ... like automatic clip switcher ? when I have clip swithced in parths 1,2,3 .... etc

hello is there any solution to firefox 3.6.3 crashing ALL the time.
rjohnson19
harry-houdini1: can you paste some craah reports from about:crashes here?
Thell
harry-houdini1: haven't had any crashing in 3.6.3
(Action) crosses his fingers
harry-houdini1
well it works fine in safe mode so i am afraid it has somthing to do with a plugin or something
how do i generate a crash report for it
last release it just sucked up 40% of my cpu all the time
scratch that it crashes in safe mode as well
rjohnson19
Well if it actually crashes but you don't get the crash reporter, there is about:crashes in the address bar, hit enter, drag the links directly to this chat. See http://s4c.in/11
oops
harry-houdini1
** (firefox-bin:23189): WARNING **: Serious fd usage error 14
rjohnson19
Well if it actually crashes but you don't get the crash reporter, there is https://developer.mozilla.org/En/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report
harry-houdini1
this seems to be an existing plugin problem with firefox
