teadict
cheers!
drale2k
Man, its sad but now i completly switched to Chrome
teadict
me too.. but I can't get rid of Firefox even if I want to
there's a reason
drale2k
I even let Firebug behind just to can browse without freezing, memory leaking and so on and so on
teadict
it's better for development
(Action) is not being honest..
I've kinda switched too
drale2k
I miss the web dev toolbar from FF
but if they keep making FF slower and more buggy forget FF
teadict
Chrome is funded, Mozilla is Mozilla
have some respect!
even Google has stated that they don't mean to replace Firefox.. they mean to merge each other
or so I heard
drale2k
Do i as an end customer care?
I dont, i want a browser that works fine
teadict
you said you develop, that puts you a little to the side of customer
         

drale2k
yes and only because of that i used Firefox until today
Every normal user would have switched months ago
especially on mac
I have to restart FF every 2 hours or so because it leaks much much memory
Chrome runs now since yesterday without problems
teadict
get rid of the commodities of breathing companies's products, learn C++ and JavaScript and cooperate with Mozilla.. what do you want me to say?
Open Source is not a company
drale2k
I dont want you anything to say, i said that because you said "have some respect"
i have
teadict
it was a joke line, I apologize
drale2k
then you have to make that "visible", i cant hear the tone of you voice over the chat :)
teadict
didn't come here to learn to chat, but thanks
manunderground
can someone answer a simple firebug question?
kbrosnan
depends on the question
manunderground
kbrosnan: naturally :-) in this case I'm just curious if anyone else is seeing the same behavior
which is, firebug no longer shows syntax errors
so if I load a page w/ a syntax error it doesn't give me a line number any more
I was wondering if that is a bug or they intentionally changed it
in the same vein the "break on error" option seems to have been removed, too
Raccoon`
how do i fix "waiting for video" black screen when trying to play any streaming media, including shoutcast?
Windows XP
kbrosnan
manunderground: i know firebug was altered to prevent it from attaching to pages by default. you likely can get a better explaination from http://groups.google.com/group/firebug
manunderground
thanks, I'll try there
kbrosnan
Raccoon`: have a vlc plugin?
Raccoon`
i do
seems that ms-asf was unlinked
got it working in winamp anyway
kbrosnan
try disabling vlc in tools > addons > plugins
Alphos
hi
i'm looking for setting that would allow ffox 3.6 to focus when opening a link from another application
currently the links open correctly, but firefox stays "in the background"
ubuntu 10.04
Lefantomedurezo
hello
I have a problem: youtube don't work because instead of the video I have a black rectangle
I have to delette the /home/mozilla to solve the problem but I don't want to lose the bookmark, extentions and history
so is there another issue?
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: has the youtube worked before in this installation?
Lefantomedurezo
yes
untile last friday
Cork
try with a new firefox profile
         

Lefantomedurezo
with a new firefox profile it work
Cork
tried in safe mode?
Lefantomedurezo
on linux there isn't the safemode
Cork
there is
firefox -safe-mode :)
Lefantomedurezo
okay
Cork
you need to close firefox first
Lefantomedurezo
with the old profile?
Cork
ya
themes, hacks, extensions will be disabled in safe mode
Lefantomedurezo
I have the same problem on safemode
Cork
what version of firefox?
Lefantomedurezo
3.6.3
Cork
hmm, one min i need to check something
ok
try copy the perfs.js to your new profile and see if the new profile breaks
Lefantomedurezo
Oo on /home/.mozilla/firefox I have a new folder
Cork
whats so strange about that?
Lefantomedurezo
to creat a new profile I moved .mozilla and start firefox
Cork
uh... no
you do firefox -CreateProfile <profile name>
or just -ProfileManager if you prefer
Lefantomedurezo
no
the new folder.default have bookmarkbackups and perfs.js
Cork
sure, why woudln't it?
it should only be the default ones though
Lefantomedurezo
but the hold folder.default have everything without perfs.js
Cork
O_o
your sure?
Lefantomedurezo
so I can't copy perfs.js from broken profil to the new
Cork
cause thats all your settings for firefox and all your extensions
Lefantomedurezo
okay
I think I have to creat new profil and to backup bookmark, history and automatic adress entrie
which files are to be moved?
Cork
the files you want to save is places.sqlite
formhistory.sqlite
signons.sqlite might be of interest too
don't forget to copy key3.db , else your passwords won't work
Lefantomedurezo
thanks
Cork
np
Lefantomedurezo
what is urlclassifier3.sql?
Cork
its the list of urls thats known to host malwares and things like that
its downloaded from googles service
Lefantomedurezo
okay
Peng_
Might as well copy it so as not to waste bandwidth.

Hey People! Is it possible to set a keyboard shortcut in Firefox, so that the menu entry "View with no Style" is accessible with it?
wasmahen
hi
i use htaccess to rewrite php pages into html pages
however firefox does not seem to take the latest document with F5
but if i give the full php link, then it takes the chages from the server
tested with other browsers, they do not have this problem
dknight
when I am in private browsing mode, does FF remember form history?
jeshyr
Is there a way to query what the current magnification level is in Firefox?
kbrosnan
jeshyr: in what context?
damada
Hi, is it possible to remove the status bar and have that information put into the address bar or the like? In order to save on screen real estate with those 16:9 displays...
I mean, of course it's easy to remove the status bar, but I still like to know where a link points to...
nevermind, there's an addon for it, still experimental, but works nice so far!

hahaah
kbrosnan

AnxiousNut
what is the difference between firefox and swiftfox? they run the same config files, what is it that makes it faster?
Peng_
I would hope Swiftfox's website explains. Probably compiled with more optimizations/.
AnxiousNut
Peng_, but what is meant by optimisation exactly? i dont get it, what is it that can be done that mozilla isnt doing if it was better, as i can see, it is faster!
kbrosnan
AnxiousNut: since the changes are compile time options, not part of the code that is under the gpl/mpl/lgpl they don't need to tell anyone
datenritter
does anybody know how i can change the color of quoted text in the composition(!) window in thunderbird? i only found the setting for quoted text in "normal" mail windows, but during composition, the color is always blue.
kbrosnan
why Mozilla does not do such optimizations, sometimes they can result in larger file sizes over 10m downloads 1k in file size is a lot of transfer. sometimes the options result in problems for some classes of cpus, etc
datenritter: #thunderbird can be found on irc.mozilla.org

hi
i am struggeling with a ticketing system. it tries to open a popup, but that opens a new tab, not a new window. aparently that causes the ticketing system to not get my stuff.
how can i change the behaviour from "new tab" to "popup window", preferably for just this hostname?
Aetherfox
[reed]: dolske: gavin: kbrosnan: mconnor: Peng: poningru: are any of you available? I have a question
kbrosnan
pinging every op is not really a great idea
winXPuser
what's the question?
kbrosnan
stockholm: setting a window size should get a new window
Aetherfox
winXPuser: it's about the channel itself
winXPuser
Aetherfox, just ask! :)
Raccoon`
[14:19] * Ignoring Aetherfox for 5 minutes for highlight spam.
did he say more than 5 nicknames?
winXPuser
don't
don't do it
Aetherfox
winXPuser: I'd like to bring my bot into here
kbrosnan
no
winXPuser
like firebot?
why not?
stockholm
kbrosnan: how can i do that?
Raccoon`
would someone paste me what Aetherfox said?
kbrosnan
he wants to run a bot
Raccoon`
what was his first line of text
kbrosnan
pinged every op on right now
Raccoon`
ok
stockholm
kbrosnan: how can i specify a window size when clicking on a link?
winXPuser
kbrosnan, why not run a mozbot (like firebot) in here?
raccoon I can paste but don't ignore me, that's more than 5 nicks yes
dolske
Aetherfox: I don't think there's any need for a bot.
Raccoon`
n/m then.
winXPuser
raccoon I'll pm it to not nick spam
Raccoon`
that's all i wanted to know
winXPuser
ok
Raccoon`
usually the user is swiftly kicked after i see that :p
winXPuser
dolske: having to go to sumo for every safemode link?
dolske
might be worth asking Wolf if he'd be willing to run firebot on Freenode with the same config.
winXPuser
dolske, might be, or might be just another mozbot
