hi - I was wanting to write an extension that can launch an external program from firefox when a particular link on a page is clicked - is this possible?
bencc
how can I make the browser cache html pages for only 10 seconds?
I've tried 'Cache-Control: max-age=10' but FF still load the page
Gryllida
bencc, go to aabout:config, filter for cache,
google the pref names.
about:config
bencc
Gryllida: I filtered. what not?
what now?
browser. cache. check_doc_frequency: 3
Gryllida
google the pref names. I have no idea which one is the one you need.
But Firefox has no other cache prefs except for these, I'm sure.
bencc
thanks

What are some of the ways to keep add-ons on various firefox installations (on various computers) in sync?
Does one have to manually install them on all installations?
Gryllida
no, a second
Weave allows users to sync bookmarks, history, preferences and customizations between computers. It can also auto-fill in your passwords for site logins. Sign up at https://services.mozilla.com/
rramsden
anyone know how I would go about disabling html5 canvas support? need to test something
         

Gryllida
go to about:config , filter for html5
rramsden
doesn't display anything, using 3.5.9
Gryllida
try 3.6+
rramsden
alright suppose i could upgrade, brb!
kedar_
Thanks, Gryllida, giving Weave a try now. The only thing one should ensure is all the Ff installations are compatible, right?
Gryllida
kedar_, right.
kedar_
QQ about Weave -- I just installed it and am trying to sync it with two computers.
It works, but apparently, my add-ons are not synced :(. Any idea?
kbrosnan
kedar_: addons are not synced atm, addons can use weave to sync their prefs but not the extension itself
WaRlOcK
Firefox 3.5 keeps crashing
sparr
is there a way I can smoothly zoom the contents of a single element?
auscompgeek
Glazoom can do that iirc
kedar_
kbrosnan -- what is the best way to keep your add-ons in sync? It's rather problematic having to install your favorite add-ons for every Ff installation you have.
peepsalot
is there a way to stop an infinite loop of alert boxes on a page without having to close the whole browser?
auscompgeek
AlertCheck can put a checkbox on alerts for you to stop those loops.
kedar_
Maybe add-on collector is what I am looking for? (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11950?src=external-1.1blog)
auscompgeek
kedar_: I don't think so.
peepsalot
auscompgeek, is that a plugin?
kedar_
auscompgeek: what should I be looking for then?
auscompgeek
peepsalot: yes it is, let me get you the URL
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13176
peepsalot
well, is there any way to stop this right now without that plugin? I was testing some javascript, and accidentally wrote some code that keeps popping up alerts. i don't want to lose all my tabs
         

auscompgeek
peepsalot: hm...
type in some javascript that adds the checkbox somewhere.
kbrosnan
kedar_: i use no more than 6 or so, mainly just weave, firebug, dominspector. so i've never really looked into it
peepsalot
i can't type in anything with this modal alert box in front
Cork
the only thing you can try is (if i remember correct) esc the dialog, and try to close the tab that does it
auscompgeek
if you can do it quickly enough...
Cork
if your lucky you might manage to do it
kbrosnan
or window.
Cork
it annoys me a bit that we have a patch to fix this, that sitts around and bitrotts...
peepsalot
i would consider this a vulnerability, it totally disrupts your browsing session and there's no way to stop it unless you exit firefox
auscompgeek
Cork: really!? where?
peepsalot
the loop is too tight to close the window before another alert comes up
Cork
auscompgeek: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=61098 , the patch is farly dead by now, but it was there a few months ago
auscompgeek
peepsalot, automate it somehow :P
Cork
then they argued about the "correct way" this SHOULD be fixed in stead -_-
i would gradly try to fix it, but if you try you get flooded by idiots hammering the bug >_<
*gladly
auscompgeek
lol
Cork
they think taht bug is some stupid comunity forum >_>
makes me mad...
auscompgeek
yeah...
peepsalot
well, sh*t i guess i have to kill the process
Cork
peepsalot: normally firefox should restart your tabs again
you just have to deselect the throublesom tab
kbrosnan
the combo of enter and mouse button one has always won for me vs simple endless loops ex. javascript:i="";while(i==""){alert('foo')}
enter gets rid of the dialog and mouse to close the tab
auscompgeek
kbrosnan: can't just do something like while(1) or while(true)?
kbrosnan
yeah, true strikes me as the most clean. been a long weekend spent most of the weekend at a tech con
Cork
auscompgeek: btw for when you need to convert html to json => http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?forumId=1&comments_parentId=210647
;)
guess not >_>
auscompgeek
I really should have ChatZilla open, but I'm too lazy to do so :P
Hm, might have a higher chance of success if I actually do open ChatZilla....
Cork
heh

notsonerdysunny

winXPuser

Lefantomedurezo
Z:\Config\Bureau\addon-1865-latest.xpi could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

Hi, how can I disable the horisontial scrollbar in Firefox 3?
winXPuser
By opening the pages that are not too wide?
kyle__
Thats not a solution
winXPuser
Actually, horizontal scrollbars do not appear until the page is too wide. When it is, hit <Ctrl> + <-> to make it smaller.
kyle__
I have a program that executes firefox to take screenshots so it would be easier to disable the scrollbar
Stylish with body overflow helped me
Thanks anyway

I'm installing some pkcs11 certificates, and I must enable the PKCS11_PUB_READABLE_CERT_FLAG
I don't see any option using edit->preferences dialog
and using pkcs11.addmodule("Modulo pkcs11 Clauer", "/usr/local/lib/libclauerpkcs11.so.0", 0x1<<28, 0); in to error console throws "pkcs11 is nulL" error
winXPuser
Ask that @ pkcs11 support channel? All this sounds alien to me.
Utopic
well, it's a firefox module
winXPuser
Is it included in Firefox? AMO website?
In an add-on?

hi
kbrosnan
hello
nextgens
which formats of image does firefox support in the <img> tag?
png,jpeg,gif, anything else?
kbrosnan
not svg if that is the question
supports apng
nextgens
it's not the question :)
is it documented somewhere?
kbrosnan
nextgens: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/modules/libpr0n/decoders/
older versions of firefox supported xbm, but that was removed
though i doubt ico is supported as img
nextgens
okay, cool
thanks :)

Heh, we all forgot about bmp. :D
