benjamin_baka: did you compile it yourself? do you need to reconfigure/rebuild it after installing the dependencies? where there any errors when you previously build it? why don't you take firefox from backports, what's missing in their version? benjamin_baka: no, but there is a very good introduction on the webpage.

hey guys so I've been using mac OSX for almost 9 months now and there is one thing I find really annoying. Hopefully someone can help me "fix" it. Well I use firefox as my main browser and what I don't like is that when I click on a file online, for example a pdf document, and then click on "open with preview" the file is automatically downloaded to /home/USERNAME/Downloads/ instead of being downloaded to a temporary location and then b deleted. Because of this, my "Downloads" folder is a mess since every time I open a file it is permanently downloaded into that directory. Any tips? thanks. Ps: I already asked for help over on #mac
does anyone know if there's an extension for firefox (or firebug) where i can select an element on a page, and have a color picker come up where i can change the color of the item in real time by dragging over the color picker?
hi people! I've downloaded libflashplayer.so from adobe.com, where do I put it in linux ubuntu? I mean, where is the plugins directory for mozilla?
usually /usr/lib/firefox/plugins, though it could varry if you use any odd builds
oh thanks, let me see apparently there is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ I put it there. hope it works.. let me see nope, doesnt work.. not even in /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/plugins/
how can I disable a plugin without uninstalling it? is it even possible?
is it possible to execute a command on the client with a web worker?
Like...a local code execution vulnerability?
The Firefox developers generally try to avoid those. :P
Firefox does not shows the main t

Is there a way to tell the Firefox installer NOT to set FF as the default browser during install? for silent install oh, and on Windows. sorry.
Hello :-) Is there some addon or any way to insert HTML to any page loaded?
uberpinguin: don't think the mozilla installer allows for a silent install
kbrosnan: it's supposed to support /S, which is reported to be broken; -ms is deprecated but still works.
Hello - Is there a way to tell Firefox to use ipv6 addresses instead of ipv4 ones? so preferring an aaaa entry
fabiand: It should. fabiand: Unless you specifically disabled IPv6 in about:config, it should all work automagically.
Peng_, so my resolver is not providing aaaa I suppose ..
Possibly? So you actually have IPv6 connectivity?
I suppose so ... Yes, I just updated my routers firmware .. no IØe got IPv6 in my lan and beyond :)
So ping6 www.kame.net or whatever works? I note you're connected to Freenode over IPv4. :P
:) Yes it works - I even get the turtle :)
your isp provides an ipv6 dns server?
kbrosnan, that is the question. the router says, that it did not get a ipv6 nameserver
That doesn't matter. Source address trickery is not common, yet.
but are there diefferent dns servers vor v4 and v6?
oh okay .. I thought that the aaaa entry does the magic.
kbrosnan: There are?
but how can i query for an aaa entry? dig ipv6.google.com should give me an ipv6 address but it doesn 't
fabiand: dig only queries for A records by default. "dig ipv6.google.com aaaa" (or use bind9-host).
ahhh I did dig aaaa ... thanks :) yey - nice :)
Gents I am having difficulties using a Smart Card with Firefox and thunderbird. Is there a better place to ask for help? To fix the issue I end up removing the Security module for my SC reader, restart thunderbird or mozilla, readd the security device and reselect the Certificate from the Smart Card.
Hie buddies! Where do firefox buffers the streaming-data? is it in .mozilla/firefox/ctlv1b7f.default/Cache ?
