WHat's that plugin for firefox that just lets you write little scripts and run them?
I wanna say it's firebug, but I know that's wrong.
xangua
greasemonkey¿
greasemonkey is for modify the webs behavior and jetpack is to add some littel new features to firefox
svm_invictvs
That's it.
xangua: I wanted to write a script that just opens up each search result on a certain page in a new tab. I find myself just doing that anyhow then closing the tabs I dont' want so I decided to codify it, heh

3.6 - can i save a page as 1 monolithic image ?
Peng_
There are extensions to screenshot pages.
Or, um, were, anyway...
orbisvicis
:(
Peng_
Honestly, though, there are a few. http://www.google.com/search?q=Firefox+screenshot+extension
You can also probably print to PDF/PostScript or somesuch

hi, everytime i search for something in the URL bar area, not the search box it is now being redirected to yp.com.hk site. Originally it was google that woudl try and find the site. What has happened?
Peng_
wookienz: Could be your DNS servers or some sort of adware or something else.
wookienz
yes it could... just looking for some advice to fix it
both Ie and FFox doing it...so must be DNS
Peng_
Or adware. Or some sort of proxy.
wookienz

Hi. I'm building an automated test environment where multiple firefox instances should be running on linux inside a vncserver under the same uid but on different $DISPLAYs. Right now I have the problem that if I try to start a new firefox instance, a window pops up saying "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new windows ...". How do I get rid of this ?
Peng_
mne: Try passing -no-remote (or setting MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 in the environment)
mne
Peng, I'm already starting firefox with that option
Peng_
...Well, then, I don't have the answer. Sorry..
mne
MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 firefox -no-remote
maybe create a new profile so that each instance will run with its own profile ?
But then I would need a way to automatically create a new empty profile

Ok, I managed to have multiple instances running under the same UID. My next question is how I can kill firefox so that the next time the "restore previous session" dialog with the text "Your last firefox session closed unexpectedly .." does not appear ?
Hence: How can I kill firefox cleanly, so that the "restore previous session" dialog does not come up

hey all - I'm using the Mozilla Prism FF extension on Ubuntu 9.1 and the created shortcuts are opening a regular instance of FF and opening the pages - anyone know a fix?
anyone know how to change the user agent in mozilla prism?
kbrosnan
find the profile folder for it and add the useragent prefs to your user.js
dotnetted
yeah - was wondering if anyone knew the path to the profiles on linux heh (as an extension)
trying to get google gears to work w/ prism - just found prefs.js and changed the UA so gears shows the DL button - but no DL
kbrosnan
gears is a binary extension, don't expect it to work on versions of Firefox that are different than the ones it has been released for
dotnetted
gotcha - do you know where prefs.js may be located my default on ubuntu?
kbrosnan
dotnetted: ~/.prism or ~/.firefox
Wolowizard
Firefox has killed my ubuntu!!!
DarsVaeda
hi, how do i remove a user set preference in firefox 3.6.3 (ubuntu)?
kbrosnan

DarsVaeda

remove, not reset
kbrosnan
reset will remove it on restart
DarsVaeda

Anyone on who is experienced with Session Manager crash restore? I have a plugin which is (I think) causing a crash on a particular site, but I don't want to lose the session (85 tabs) and since the dialog is modal (for Session Manager restore) I can't disable the plugin...
kind of a catch 22 situation
I'd like to either disable the plugin and restore the crashed session, or remove that one tab from the session and restore then disable the plugin and reload that site
perhaps being able to disable that particular plugin at startup? like a --noloadplugin $pluginname type of switch?
AHA!
MrSassyPants
ok, so opera sees the printer but doesn't give me printing options, while firefox gives me printing options, but doesn't see the printer. what.
Thell
I was able to beat the plugin to the punch and close the tab quick enough that the plugin didn't try to process it.... phew
kbrosnan
Thell: that is the old session restore interface, it now loads a tab
Thell
kbrosnan: yeah I got the tab... but also a modal dialog
kbrosnan
there snould not be a modal dialog
then you can disable plugins via the regular tools > addons > plugins
Thell
All good now though, closed that tab before the plugin tried processing it, then disabled the plugin for that url, then restored the whole session
REALLY?
FF 3.6.3
kbrosnan
yes
Thell
AHA!
Tab Mix Plus
I didn't have it set to use FFs built-in Session Restore !DOH!
Should be better now. Although I don't plan on forcing a test :P
Thanks kbrosnan. Might just save me some future aggrevation
aggravation too

I have a problem with a website where when I try to click to save the file, the "do this automatically...from now on" option is grayed out. Mozilla says this is because of the server headers. Is there any way to force firefox to save automatically anyways, instead of asking?
tobylane
right click on the link
Travis-42
tobylane: well, for one thing that's not very automatic since I then have to specify what to save as, but there's also not really a link to click on, the download happens as a result of a form submission
tobylane
shame, but common
Travis-42
tobylane: yea, oh well
