do i put this in my /etc/apt/sources.list
?
Argafal
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.

kzman
what is the difference between firefox 3.5 and 3.6?
ilikenwf
3.7a5 is really fast
although i'm waiting on my extensions to catch up
i've forced compatibility
only bug i notice is that here under linux the extensions pane is missing a scrollbar

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?

progre55
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/

The Firefox developers generally try to avoid those. :P

Hello :-)
Is there some addon or any way to insert HTML to any page loaded?
kbrosnan
greasemonkey
BitchyBadger
well I need to add javascript
for automating the proces
Peng_
greasemonkey
kbrosnan
uberpinguin: don't think the mozilla installer allows for a silent install
uberpinguin
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
Peng_
fabiand: It should.
fabiand: Unless you specifically disabled IPv6 in about:config, it should all work automagically.
fabiand
Peng_, so my resolver is not providing aaaa I suppose ..
Peng_
Possibly?
So you actually have IPv6 connectivity?
fabiand
I suppose so ... Yes, I just updated my routers firmware .. no IØe got IPv6 in my lan and beyond :)
Peng_
So ping6 www.kame.net or whatever works?
I note you're connected to Freenode over IPv4. :P
fabiand
:)
Yes it works - I even get the turtle :)
kbrosnan
your isp provides an ipv6 dns server?
fabiand
kbrosnan, that is the question. the router says, that it did not get a ipv6 nameserver
Peng_
That doesn't matter. Source address trickery is not common, yet.
fabiand
but are there diefferent dns servers vor v4 and v6?
kbrosnan
yes
fabiand
oh okay ..
I thought that the aaaa entry does the magic.
Peng_
kbrosnan: There are?
fabiand
but how can i query for an aaa entry? dig ipv6.google.com should give me an ipv6 address but it doesn
't
Peng_
fabiand: dig only queries for A records by default. "dig ipv6.google.com aaaa" (or use bind9-host).
fabiand
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.
