Just a small problem, linux freezes, no mouse no keyboard. Sorry to bother anyone with it. But I think it has to do with FF. I've started closing the program and reopening it, which helps. I think it has to do with flash, so I installed noflash, which helps. But it still happens. 9.10 ubuntu.

hi
Wes-
I just noticed something -- I'm using firefox on mac -- Where did the "throbber" go?
When I click "I agree" on this page: http://www.netfile.gc.ca/dsclmr-eng.html I get no feedback that anything is happening. (Safari shows a loading whizmo thing in the location bar)
Nevermind
It's like that because the previous website i was on window.opened with the tab bar :/
(Hey, I've had a LONG day)

Greetings =)
Was just wondering if someone know of a firefox plugin that would allow me to force firefox to download http://foo.com/stylesheet.css and http://foo.com/javascript.js from local disk instead of attempting to make the network request. I tried to use Greasemonkey to re-render the body after changing the appropriate element attributes
- this did do much good because loads of java script in <head> already failed due to the original URLs being filtered by proxy. :-(
(I tried saving a local copy of the site's HTML, and setting baseurl and updating baseurl for dojo, but still some of the javascript functions - which are "compiled" - are not obeying their configuration flag for baseUrl :-(
clever
awox: sounds like something youll need to do thru an http observer
awox: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Observer_Notifications#HTTP_requests
awox: i think those can be used to fake the content of requests or change every instance of 'pu**y' to 'kitten' in the page as its loading :P
automatic kid-friendly cencoring!
awox
ooh
eh neat
thanks for that
gives me a great starting point if I cannot find an existing extension
itilious
what plugin do I need to listen to a live audio feed that used to be wmp but for linux?
awox
cant find a plugin that does this, i might ahve to do it myself :(
(never witten a firefox plugin before, anyone have a good starter page?) :P
winXPuser
plugin for what?
awox
replacing a http request with a request for a local file

winXPuser

blbrown

winXPuser

blbrown

Hi
How can I finish a download with firefox? it's in the list of downloads but I cannot start it..
Peng_
Ah. That could be a problem.
Some third-party downloader with continue support might work.
gidna
some files have a green arrow that allows me to continue the download ... but other haven't...
what could I do? I can't restart the download..
Peng_
Oh. That's interesting. I dunno.
gidna
ok you can continue with the torrent..

Is there a way to get firefox to use a different .macromedia profile directory?
Peng_
...A symlink? :D
koalabruder
Is there a simple way to test the nightly build under linux without changing the actual installation of firefox?
kbrosnan
koalabruder: downlaod a nightly build, extract to home folder, in the extracted folder run ./firefox -P (assuming Firefox is closed) and make a new profile. if you want to run mutiple versions of Firefox at the same time use -P -no-remote
koalabruder
If I do it I get this:
usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
Peng_
koalabruder: You put it in "usr/lib/firefox"?
koalabruder: Also, are you running "./firefox"?
Not firefox-bin or something else.
(Action) is just guessin'
koalabruder
~/usr/lib/firefox/firefox -P
~/usr/lib/firefox/firefox
both fails
kbrosnan
did you download the correct version? x64 or i686
koalabruder
x64
kbrosnan
is the system firefox running atm?
what distro are you using?
koalabruder
I'm using Ubuntu. What's atm
I have downladed this: firefox-3.7a5pre.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
kbrosnan
well running the system version of Firefox would prevent him from starting the nightly
koalabruder
Sorry I was just away
kbrosnan
well running the system version of Firefox would prevent you from starting the nightly, inc chatzilla
so if you want them both running at the same time you'll need to use firefox -P -no-remote
koalabruder
if I use firefox -P -no-remote I have the same failure
kbrosnan
what does uname -a output
koalabruder
uname -a
sorry wrong console
uname -a prints
Linux laz 2.6.31-20-generic #58-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 12 05:23:09 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
kbrosnan
your not running x64 linux
you need the i686 download
koalabruder
Oh thank you I'll try
kbrosnan
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-3.7a5pre.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2
delete the old nightly folder before extracting the currently downloaded one to avoid any conflicts
mezod
hi i would like to know how can i work with this http://01audiovideo.free.fr/ogg/1vs0_JuniorGroove.ogg music player. It seems it comes with firefox when finding a .ogg...is thre any way i can control it to embed it on a website?
kbrosnan
you can use html5's <audio> tag and some css to style your own player if that is what you are asking
koalabruder
kbrosnan: I could start it no. But webgl doesn't work.
I have switched webgl.enabled_for_all_sites to true
kbrosnan
koalabruder: what video card do you have?
koalabruder
do you have a console command to check
kbrosnan
glxinfo |grep rendering will tell you if you have hardware acceleration for video
glxinfo |grep rendering
is the command just to make it clear
koalabruder
direct rendering: Yes
is the output
kbrosnan
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
under the section "Device" there should be a driver listed
koalabruder
Identifier"Configured Video Device"
kbrosnan
koalabruder: glxinfo | grep vendor
koalabruder
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: SGI
OpenGL vendor string: DRI R300 Project
kbrosnan
looks to be an ati graphics card
koalabruder
Is this a general problem?
kbrosnan
i think you might be using the open source drivers for ati cards which are fairly decent but might not have the opengl code needed for webgl
checking to see if ati provides binary linux drivers
koalabruder
Thanks, I will look for it
kbrosnan
koalabruder: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI looks ok'ish
there should be people in #ubuntu that can help you with any hagups with that process
jdolan
can anyone tell me how to fix firefox's choppy scrolling?
my computer is stupid-fast, yet firefox scrolls like i'm running a p166.
the userContent.css fix did nothing.
well, screw it. on to Chrome then.
FF can't scroll a damn web page on a 4ghz quad core.
