hi all!
every time i want to print out a website i have to tell firefox again the settings for header and footer - is there any way at all to save them as defaults?!
pereba
I would like to remove/edit/hide/change this line bellow tabbar (tabs-bottom?) http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/2332/linebellowtab.png with userchrome/stylish, any idea?
rapha, edit your printer in about:config
my example: print.printer_\\http://192.168.1.1:1631\HP_LaserJet_1015.print_headerright; &U
clear this option, and done.. no more text on header right
make change to header left and both footer
rapha
pereba: cool, that does it - thanks! :)
pereba
you are welcome

felipe`: hi
Rabbitbunny
Anybody happen to know that addon that lets you change code and keep it the way? A site I frequent is hard coded for 800*600, it's terrible at 1600*1200.
Firebug shows me what to change, but it doesn't stay.
WOFall
eh, as in a greasemonkey scripter?
Rabbitbunny
It's a phpBB2 site?
Oh, wait. That's perfect.
Thanks.
OxE6
any idea why having one firefox tab open (to any page, even blank) would cause it to use up 50% of my cpu, and cause the temperature in my processor to be raised 10°C ?
         

WOFall
OxE6, have you tried in safe mode?
OxE6
not before just now, but it doesn't seem to have changed anything
rjohnson19
OxE6: do you have AVG by any chance?
OxE6
yeah, but it's not running atm
rjohnson19
OxE6
hmm, I don't have any avg toolbar installed in firefox either
perlsyntax
I got a question my firefox freeze up sometime not sure why it does it on my linux for?
i think it odd.
any ideas?
DrkShadow
Since when do the firefox file downloads default to cancel? goddamn..
Is there a way to change that?
Can I make it not ask me and just save to the download directory?

Hello. I've compiled Firefox 3.6.3 on Debian Lenny with the following mozconfig: http://pastebin.mozilla.org/713438 When executed, I'm getting strange rendering errors: http://imgur.com/Bmosk How would I got about fixing this?
dolske
kevin01123: you should really build with a minimal mozconfig, I'd drop all those ac_add_options to begin with.
but I would randomly suspect it's the system cairo that's a problem.
zjblabs
I have a highly critical question: why is firefox (other than those nasty profile and session management "features") so damn'ed awesome?
Kangarooo
firefox crashed and asking if i want to restore all windows. i dont want now how to save this session?
TannerF
about:sessionstore
type that in your URL bar
errr
about:sessionrestore
West
hey TannerF, do you know who deals with the cloak website?
TannerF
cloak website/
?
West
yes, for ff
TannerF
cloak?
West
I noticed you have yours already
yes
TannerF
oh
i've had mine for months
Kangarooo
ah the same window i had open with all windows
         

West
I see.
TannerF
but gavin or mconnor have to approve them. if they don't recognize you they won't approve you
Kangarooo
ok so now i close and next time i open about:sessionrestore and will be able to restore all windows?
West
no one replied on the website
I'm not sure if they seen my request
gavin
what website?
oh, you mean http://etherpad.mozilla.com:9000/freenode-cloaks
West
Yes, that is the one
Kangarooo
TannerF: i closed ff opened about:sessionrestore and all is gone.
was there a way to save that session?
TannerF
not as far as i know.
Kangarooo
but thats what i was asking. to get this session later open
maybe u can tell me in witch file session was stored? ill try to recover older version of that file
TannerF
sessionstore.js
kevin01123
dolske: What ac_add_options should I have?
dolske
kevin01123: see https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Simple_build
it's easy to shoot yourself in the food with the plethora of options, best to to a build without any unnecessary crud first.
Kangarooo
TannerF: eh file was already overwriten. recovered but opening it wasnt having logic as normal sessionrestore.js but trydanyway renaming and opening FF and its all gone.. :( next time ill know to first copy that file before closing FF
TannerF
it overwrites itself
kevin01123
dolske: Compiled it with the simple build instructions. Same errors.
dolske
are you building mozilla-central?
kevin01123
dolske: No, I'm not building trunk. I did a hg checkout -r FIREFOX_3_6_3_RELEASE on the mozilla-1.9.2 release.
dolske
ok... and to 3.6.3 builds downloaded from mozilla.com work properly?
s/to/do
kevin01123
dolske: I hope so.
dolske: Why wouldn't they?
dolske
did you try one?
point being, that helps rule out if it's a problem with your system or a problem with your build.
kevin01123
dolske: I've had problems with firefox 3.5 and up. Same issues.
dolske: On my custom compiled one, and in the distro supplied one.
dolske: The only one that hasn't been borked has been the nightly builds.
dolske: But they're very unstable.
dolske
hmm
Nautilus
screengrab or FireShot? Just want to save pages to an image file, but prefer the most reliable add-on
ok screengrab for now, use to it
neighborlee
hi there, is th ere a way I can get the very laggy -like page scrolling to go away here in windows 7 64bit ,,I have it on alot of pages and its not happening in opera and I dont know what else to try to change..thx anyone ;)
arand
Why is savannah.gnu.org's certificate not in firefox by default?
dolske
CAcert?
arand
dolske: Presumably, but I just think it's a very strange thing to have those site blocked per default...
dolske
CACert hasn't been able to meet the minimum requirements for CA inclusion, and they withdrew their request.
http://www.mail-archive.com/bug-gnuzilla@gnu.org/msg00046.html has a good overview of the situation.
arand
Hmm, well, policy is policy, but blocking gnu savannah and debian bugtracker (iirc) by default gives a weird impression..
dolske
there's no special blocking for those sites. It was their choice to use a certificate that wasn't issued from a CA recognized by any of the major browsers.
kbrosnan
arand: making execeptions to a well defined policy that mozilla has used for years to evaluate the auditing procedures for CAs is a slippery slope
s/auditing/auditing and procedures/
arand
kbrosnan: dolske: Yea, fair enough... blech.

I must ask one thunderbird question because no one on thunderbiard ch knows the answer, the question is:
Did someone found the way to raise in thunderbird the default limit which only show 10 hits per page in "search all messages"?
kbrosnan
#thunderbird is on irc.mozilla.org or http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging
Loopta
I'm there but no one knows the answer
auscompgeek
Try the link that kbrosnan gave you.
or http://www.mozilla-messaging.com/support/
kbrosnan
I don't really use thunderbird. So I won't be able to help you. Activity in channels can varry depending on the time of day. Getting to be a bit late for most of the Americas
Loopta

hi all, anyone know a regex find, as a replacement for the find bar on firefox, even something that would handle the * in find would be a god send ????? .... i have "/find bar/" installed, but I'm finding it to be buggy
and it hangs firefox on ubuntu 9.10
Cork
patCork: ya /find bar/ is the only one i know of, and it sucks

Kano
hi, why is 3.6.3 pre still in http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-firefox-3.6.x/
Digicrime
don't know
kbrosnan
checking with #bmo or #build on irc.mozilla.org would be the best people to ask
Kano
well just asked in #bmo
kbrosnan
i would guess it was an oversight or a failure of an automated process
Kano
it breaks my script when there are more releases in there
i could add a sorting, but i would like to know if that will happen again
also sorting will not always work when .9 switches to .10
Tniffoc
Hey, for some reason, I can't start RuneScape in signed mode. I was able to do this before, but then once I clicked "No" on the prompt for it to go to signed mode, I no longer see the prompt. I have cleared literally EVERYTHING in the Clear History menu option. I'm on Mac OSX Snow latest updates.
Kano
bye

manik
hi everyone
can someone point me to a firefox extension developers mail list?
or an IRC channel?>
having issues with debugging my extension
and could use some advice
Tniffoc
manik, #firefox @ irc.moziilla.org

manik
Tniffoc: thanx - I also just found https://forums.addons.mozilla.org/
Plugh
I'm running FF 3.5.8 on Ubuntu Linux. I can delete cookies but I've lost the ability to say if/when it should accept cookies from remote sites.
manik
Tniffoc: do you know of a web based IRC client that has access to irc.mozilla.org? behind a fwall here and I can't use a thick IRC client
Tniffoc
manik, a firewall shouldn't restrict IRC traffic that much as YOU connect to the server and not vice versa. you could have problems with DCC though. I don't know of any web clients of irc.mozilla.org.
Plugh
Is there some about:config settings I can change so it will let me use Preferences to say how it should handle cookies?
manik
Tniffoc: *this* firewall restricts the ports I can connect to. :)
Anyway - to the question at hand
Plugh
Tniffoc: One IRC channel I'm on gets people coming in via mibbit. Looking at http://www.mibbit.com/networks/ I see a reference to Mozilla in there. Might be worth taking a look at it.
manik
So I have an addon
and the main code is encapsulated in an overlay.js file
which has some stuff that runs when the add-on is loaded
Now how can I register for a notification
when a page completes loading - in any window, in any tab?
Basically I need to do some post-processing on the loaded page
Plugh
I seem to recall reading about an OnLoad event in some Javascript related magazine articles.

can anyone confirm lite.facebook.com loaded in facebook just displays a blank white page? i can only make it display if i goto lite.facebook.com/lite - same problem in google chrome...
which i of course only tried for testing purposes ;)
xiven
Hey guys
I wasn't sure how to google this and get good results. Everytime I start a download in firefox, I click a button to confirm it. But now, instead of a download box or bar at the bottom coming up...I see nothing.

Hi!
I have a question : is it possible to synchronise firefox 3.5 for linux with Opera 10.1 for linux also?
O_o is there anyone there?
aaron42
Quick question--is there any way to scrit
Oy
mconnor
QueNon: if someone wrote a tool to do that, I'm sure it's possible, whether anyone's targeted Opera... I dunno
aaron42
To script copy/paste from the command line? ( windows or Linux)
I have a site where the text representation I get when I do select all, copy, is perfect, and completely different from, e.g., save as, text
QueNon
mconnor: yes,but i asked to know if someone has done it...
mconnor
then ask "is there a tool that does this" not "is it possible"
aaron42: probably not directly, but you could probably write an extension to add command line handlers to do that
aaron42
Hmm
Thx
mconnor
aaron42: I take it you don't have access to the site itself?
QueNon
mconnor: ok,sorry
aaron42
I do, but essentially I want to batch-scrape a bunch of over-formatted reports
QueNon
so,is there a tool to synchronise Opera with firefox? ;p
aaron42
Ugly wide tables that save as text or any of the various html2txt utils don't deal well with
Copy gives me an almost perfect tab-separated table ready for loading into somewhere I can actuall work with it (db/spreadsheet/etc)
