kbrosnan, zap.co.il
that's price comparison site, i've never seen it behaving badly on firefox 3.5, but on 3.6 it gets stuck... possibly one of the adverts/visit counters, since i observed this behavior before, but in a non-repeatable manner
on other sites
the behavior is a completely stuck interface and eating memory at 2mb/sec rate untill killed

Hi!
I must say, one thing really sucks
I couldn´t de-install the old java consoles...
Only MUCH later i learned that i needed to start firefox with admin-privileges...
That really sucked ass
Until then, i had started it in safe mode and killed some bookmarks in the proces...
+ now my personas don´t work anymore
which in itself is also not good
but worst: i believe that some site exploited the java-vulnerability and fu*ked up my pc
why the fu*k couldn´t i get rid of this sh*t??????
come on eggheads, don´t just take notes, sb answer plz
Ah well, go die. Apart from that i must say that firefox is a great browser.
pwellll

I have Firefox installed in Ubuntu, used the package from the Mozilla Team. One annoyance is that when I middle click on a page, it opens a new tab attempting to go to that location. This happens when I try middle-clicking on a link to open it in a new tab, but accidentally miss the link. Is there any way to stop this behavior?

RMCampos
hi all
I need some proxy extension for FF
Peng_
That's a bit vague. Not that I know the answer anyway.
RMCampos
I'm from Brazil, and from here I can't see the website http://www.pinkbike.com, but with proxy, I can
I want to active easly the proxy, like one click, some like that
Peng_
Like I said, I don't know the answer. Try irc://irc.mozilla.org/firefox -- it's active right now.
RMCampos
all right Peng_ thanks
Carko23
Hi... Can anyone tell me why Firefox allows me to Add Exception when using HTTPS, when the other site presens a certificate that fails with a fatal message? Isn't TLS fatal alert supposed to mean the immediate termination of the connection?
Peng_
Carko23: ...Cuz Firefox is nice?
Carko23
(Action) cries
Peng_
The whole premise of "Add Exception" is to allow the user to do something stupid. Why exclude extra-stupid situations?
Carko23
Peng_ well, because that way they keep doing those extra-stupid things, because it works for them (of course they added a permament exception some time ago, so it appears all OK on their side)
antlong
hey, has anyone come across a version is too old error when using firefox-bin
Peng_
"firefox-bin"? You didn't run "./firefox-bin" directly, did you?
antlong
its being envoked by another program
when its starting up, it gives me the sqlite too old error and closes
mzz
antlong: what distro?
antlong
mac 10.5 ff version 3.6.3 - sqlite version 3.6.23.1
mzz
hmm, if you're on mac I'd assume firefox would use its local copy of sqlite
can you think of any reason for it not to do so on your system?
antlong
firefox-bin may be using one that comes with firefox, but i havent found it
mzz
it *should* be using the one that comes with firefox, I'm pretty sure.
what's the exact error message? Does it contain version numbers?
Cork[home]
mzz: isn't that an old known problem (donno if its been fixed) that firefox uses the system installation of sqlite if you start bin direct or something?
antlong
actually i dont think its firefox
mzz
Cork[home]: sure, you shouldn't be starting firefox-bin directly, that might do this (assuming mac startup isn't too special)
antlong: is some other program launching firefox-bin directly instead of whatever the proper launcher is on mac?
antlong
yeah textmate
mzz
tell it not to :)
antlong
i think thats the problem
well i need it to - but i think its doing it wrong
mzz
firefox-bin is not meant to be started directly. Is there a "firefox" script?
Cork[home]
mzz: i remember something about an old bug when you started profilemanager and other commands attributes
mzz
(Action) is not very good at mac
Cork[home]
(this was mac only)
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=513747
its fixed though
antlong
lord
completed removed all sqlite3's on the comp, installed new one, same sh*t
mzz
what's the actual error message? Does it contain version numbers?
antlong
nothing
its just a popup
says version is too old
wont let firefox open
mzz
is the exact literal message "version is too old"?
I am asking for this because I want to doublecheck it's the one I think it is, which means I want to search for it in the firefox source code.
that's a little hard if I don't know exactly what the message is.
The20Year
any way to figure out why firefox hangs every 30 seconds or so?
antlong
mzz: its not system popup it seems, saying that the sqlite version is too old
ill screenshot it, one sec
mzz http://skitch.com/along/dbyq1/firefox
mzz
antlong: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/storage/src/mozStorageService.cpp#81 is it
it's annoying that message doesn't include the version numbers it's comparing :(
anyway, this means that either your local firefox installation is confusingly corrupted (partially upgraded) or it's finding a different sqlite library somehow
does that same firefox start if you launch it normally?
(you mentioned starting it via textmate, iirc)
antlong
yup
firefox-bin starts ok also when i do it manually
mzz
you really shouldn't be starting firefox-bin directly, unless there's some mac oddity making that ok to do on mac but a bad idea everywhere else
antlong
i was just testing :)
whatever it is, it involves a dyld_ path or something
mzz
you may need to wait for a mac user to show up to debug this.
lpaint
hey how do I gain access to the dialog that allows me to pick what app reponse to email links
antlong
mzz: system is sqlite3 version 3.6.23.1 - selenium or firefox is trying to use the stock mac one which is like 3.0 or something
lpaint
hi btw
mzz

pkramerruiz
Hi
Anyone there?
I write from Spain
I wanted to ask if anyone might explain me, how I can make .deb packages from mozilla's xpi's for my launchpad repo
Peng_
Well, you can install the extension globally . . .
pkramerruiz: There are a few already, e.g. enigmail. Read their developer docs.
kbrosnan
i don't get why people insist on repackaging addons, the repos are rarely up to date versus addons.mozilla.org
pkramerruiz
@Peng: What do you mean with globally?
kbrosnan
lancelot_of: what is the content of your userChrome.css
Peng_
pkramerruiz: So every user on the system gets it.
lancelot_of
kbrosnan, i copied that in your website and putted in mine
pkramerruiz
@Peng: Do you mean, I can upload the normal XPI to my repository, and after that, I can install the addons from the synaptic?
Peng_
pkramerruiz: No.
kbrosnan
lancelot_of: where did you put the file?
Peng_
pkramerruiz: Like I said, you should read up on how other extensions do it.
pkramerruiz: Or go with what kbrosnan said and don't do it at all.
lancelot_of
kbrosnan, in ~/.mozilla/firefox/i54t2tq8.default as indicated by the link in your website on how to find own firefox profile folder
