hellok for some reason my firefox is acting like a xml browser does anybody know why?
dolske
sn00p: xml browser? like, and XML error?
*an
sn00p
dolske, no sometimes no color or graphics white page with linmks
links
dolske
problems like that are usually due to CSS files not loading.
eg, network glitches. If you have http pipelining enabled, that can also cause such things.
sn00p
Its not enabled
pipelining
How do I fix my css problem
JodaZ
is there something like the DownloadWith extension for current firefox versions
i need to open a link with a external app
sn00p
dolske,
I found th eproblem
I had to switch to private browsing for some reason
dolske
o...k... that seems bizarre.
(sorry, forgot your problem earlier)
could have been a bad CSS file cached, maybe? not sure.
sn00p
the error was coming from multple sites
ID did a search for google and found private browsing solves the problem
but I don tknow why

Any recommendations for a Firefox screen reader (for Windows)? Firevox seems to be incompatible with 3.6.

does anyone know of a way to make firefox cache DNS lookups
does anyone know how to make firefox cache DNS lookups
Peng_
It does, just not for long.
thomad16
I know is there any way that i could make it cache them for a longer time on sertan sites
Peng_
I doubt it. You could always set up some sort of DNS cache on your computer (or router), such as DNSMasq.

k thx

When I have multiple open windows, and I shift-click a link (open in new window), this pops up an extra window (as expected). However, when I close this new window, the focus is now on one of the other open windows, not on the one where I clicked the link. Worked fine in prev versions, but not in 3.6 anymore. Strange - Is that a setting, and if yes, how can I change that ?
vvpalin
question: why does firefox load http://news.google.com ... and also http://[news.google.com] ??
Desperado
vvpalin: when does it load that?
vvpalin
whenever i paste it in there
so why does it do that ?
Desperado
whenever you paste it in where ?
i guess i don't get your question
vvpalin
whenever i paste it in the start menu
lolwut
whenever i put that in the browser bar it loads the url
so why ??
IE doesnt, safari doesnt
why does FF

Ce n'est pas la question... ^^

hello
how do i turn on 'set as desktop background' in firefox 3.6.3?
in the right click context menu
Peng_
Menu Editor extension or an equivalent or a bit of userChrome.css/Stylish?
         

bali_
Okay, I understand userChrome.css. I was going to add something like this...
#context-setDesktopBackground { display: all !important; }
will that work?
Peng_
Wait what.
I thought you said "turn off". Sorry.
Um...I have no idea what we're talking about now.
bali_
Okay, in firefox 3.6.3 the context option 'set as dektop background' is not visible. I would like to turn it on.
Peng_
bali_: A quick Google says the Prism extension does that, but it was fixed 3 months ago.
bali_
Peng_: That is strange, I am installing gentoo on a new system and pulled firefox 3.6.3, and the default install doesn't have that menu option.
Peng_
Maybe Gentoo did something weird.
bali_
It's possible.
Peng_ I am trying to add the Prism extension, but the website gives an error: It can't find this file...https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/6665/platform:2/addon-6665-latest.xpi?src=addondetai
Peng_
Why are you trying to install the Prism extension?
bali_
to enable the 'set as dektop background' menu option in the right click context menu
Peng_
Peng_-- for ambiguousness.
I meant that certain versions of the Prism extension break it. Unless you're running them, I don't know why it would be broken.
General Linux suckiness maybe?
bali_
Possible. I have another question.
In userChrome.css there are ways to set viewing options for context menus using the display command i.e. 'display: none !important;'
What all values can the parameter 'display' take? We know one of the is 'none'
Peng_
http://www.google.com/search?q=CSS+display <-- Lots of different things. I doubt many of them apply to context menus, though. :P There might be proprietary extensions for XUL, too.

is it true firefox can connect to postgresql directly?
the-dude
is it possible to whitelist a site to allow popups in prefs.js ?

Hi all!
I had a question some weeks ago about killing a defunct iceweasel. Here's the solution: Do a "ps auxwwf | grep iceweasel" , then kill all parents with signal 9. Go from top to bottom, that'll do it.
ps auxwwf | grep firefox
opps..

How do I get firefox to route this link rtsp://v6.cache6.c.youtube.com/CkELENy73wIaOAnyoBYDRLikChMYESARFEIJbXYtZ29vZ2xlSARSBXdhdGNoWglDbGlja0xpbmtguo2R7KbI_6hKDA==/0/0/0/video.3gp to VLC?

i have installed firefox 3.6 on debian lenny amd64 but it can not browse . Any clues ?
poutine
benjamin_baka, Your question contained no information to work off of whatsoever
benjamin_baka
poutine: i just downloaded the new firefox unto my machine . i untared it and cd into it
started firefox
when i browse it says it can not connect to server
i did ldd ./firefox-bin
libxul.so , libmozjs.so and libxpcom.so not found
what do i do ?
i am running debian lenny amd 64
Argafal
wild guessing: you lack a proper version of xulrunner.
benjamin_baka
Argafal: i guess so .
Argafal
this guess is not based on any knowledge of the firefox codebase but based on the fact that i needed to update xulrunner when updating firefox 3.0 to 3.6 on stabl.e

Argafal
benjamin_baka: A suitable package/version should be in lenny-backports if you don't have any objections against using backports.
benjamin_baka
Argafal: Now, the ldd command does not complain of any missen files yet firefox can not still browse
Argafal: but any ways what is the full url to the back port ?
