Hi. I've got latest TabMixPlus installed in FF 3.6.4. Every time I visit my own site, it displays in a "Protected" tab (with a yellow shield + excalamtion point icon). Only for my own site. How do I *unprotect* it, so I can close the tab?

dolske: The problem is firebot doesn't support connecting to multiple servers, right?
dolske
Peng_: so 2 copies, same config? dunno, hence my referral to Wolf.
Peng_
Yeah. Shrug.

does anyone know of an addon that will let me extract a site's cookies to a Netscape cookies.txt format
useful for wget
--load-cookies=FILE load netscape cookies from FILE before session.
nvm, found it in the sandbox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8154
Callek
is moz DNS down entirely?
(Action) can't seem to reach irc.m.o nor the mozillamessaging tbpl
Peng_
ns1 and ns2 are fine, but ns3 times out. Or is at least slow enough that I gave up.
From my POV, anyway.
ns3 works now.
Callek
Peng: ok, let me try
         

Peng_
Tested from two locations, too.
Callek
Peng_: I'm failing to connect to irc.m.o
Peng_: any nagios errors spewing?
Peng_
03:22:52 <@nagios> [63] amo.zlb.nl:http - addons.mozilla.org is CRITICAL: (Service Check Timed Out)
(i.e. 5 minutes ago)
Several people pinged out, too.
Callek: Try connecting to gravel.mozilla.org?
Callek: Also, pastebin mtr/traceroute.
Callek
was able to /attach to gravel
(I left since all my settings are attached to "irc.m.o" for chatzilla)
Peng_
Use CZ's network support? :D
Callek: There was a short netsplit a couple minutes ago. I'm connected to both sand and gravel without problems, though.
Callek
Peng_: is it bad that I can't remember the command to traceroute?
Peng_
Callek: "traceroute"? :D
Callek
Peng_: and is it worse that I can't remember how to flush dns records on windows
Peng_: from |cmd| and from MozillaBuild |traceroute| doesn't resolve to any program
(default path)
Peng_
Callek: Uhh, might be tracert on Windows
Callek: "ipconfig /flushdns"
Google++
Callek
Peng_: ahh thanks
(Action) knew the switch just forgot the program to invoke
O hey, what do ya know; it is connecting me now
(Action) cheers for surprises
probably was windows seeing tracert and needing to re-resolve the IP

I try this tutorial http://www.zerosign.net/index.php/2005/11/22/how-to-change-your-firefox-throbber/
but it don't work
kbrosnan
Lefantomedurezo: sounds like the css ids have changed
or that your userChrome.css file does not have the needed namespace
Lefantomedurezo
kbrosnan: what is wrong? http://pastebin.com/zeyDdSmh
I have not cleared the namespace :\
auscompgeek
Lefantomedurezo: I think that just changes the toolbar icon.
Lefantomedurezo
?
but nothing has changed
kbrosnan
Lefantomedurezo: then the css id changed
Lefantomedurezo
it it should print a fox instead of the turning circle
I think that http://forum.flood.fr/files/throbber_smalll_298.gif is'nt betiful
auscompgeek
It changed the toolbar icon, but you can't see it since it's not there.
Lefantomedurezo
but how to replace http://forum.flood.fr/files/throbber_smalll_298.gif on firefox 3.6
I erase throbber_small.gif to put an animated fox but nothing has changed
kennyG_
hello guys!
how can I open a pdf file directly into my browsers instead of downloading files?
Cork
kennyG_: you need to install the adobe reader plugin in firefox
kennyG_
Cork, isn't there any other pluging available for that?
pereba
yes
Cork
foxit might have one
pereba
FoxIT PDF Reader is good
kennyG_
Ok guys, I will look for it. Thank you very much!
I don't think any of those plugins are available to FF 3.6.3 Mac.
pereba
adobe is system plugin like flash
will work with any browser in any version
FoxIt need a Firefox addon xpi
kennyG_
yeah, I know, but I cannot find in using FF adds on
pereba
you can get it from FoxIt update tool from help menu
Peng_
There are various online PDF-to-HTML or Flash converters.
kennyG_
I am currently trying to download a FoxReader3.3_emu.msi file from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/index.php
But now sure if this is the right file or how to install it,...
Peng_
.......MSI? On OS X?
kennyG_
OS X
kbrosnan
kennyG_
I am looking for a PDF Reader
Peng_
Cool, there's a Foxit build for Linux. Why not OS X, then?
kbrosnan
adobe does not make a Firefox plugin for adobe reader
Peng_
They don't?
kennyG_
yeah, I try to search for Adobe and it didn't show me any results...
Thank you kbrosnan !
I think that's why jobs is so piss off with adobe.
kbrosnan
Peng_: not on osx, it only works with safari
Peng_
Huh.
pereba
nice new trunk build is out :)
kennyG_
pereba, what?
pereba
nightly build...
kennyG_
yes, ok, but what are you talking about?
pereba
new build come out fiver minutes later...
kennyG_
new FF build?
pereba
yes nightly build!!!!
kennyG_
oh, ok... :)
wrksx
does firefox encode or decode % encoded characters of the url before sending his request ?
pereba
prob
io41_
is it possible to give a specific url chrome privileges? i.e. anything on example.com should be trusted.

hi, how do i determine whether i'm running the 32 or 64 bits version of ff?
kbrosnan
about: or help > about firefox
a_
i thought that shows the os i'm not, not the ff version
i don't see anything specific about ff 64
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100330 Fedora/3.5.9-2.fc12 Firefox/3.5.9
kbrosnan
x86_64
a_
yeah that's the os no?
kbrosnan
no
a_
ah ok
kbrosnan
Linux is the os
a_
linux x86_64 is the os surely?
kbrosnan
which is different than Linux i686
a_
or rather indeed
so that's why i thought that the browser string inside the ( ) referred to my os not the ff version!
anyway, trying to get the flash alpha plugin working is a nightmare
kbrosnan: do you have any experience of the flash 10 alpha in fedora?
kbrosnan
not fedora
a_
yeah, seems fedora is impossible, and the irc channel seem lacking in understanding of english unless you speak fedora
ex-ubuntu user, but seeing some bad signs in the last two releases that bad things are going to happen

hello, is there any progress with porting firefox to Qt, as Nokia annonced a few months ago? There was plans for release this summer, right exactly when firefox 4 beta is going to be out....
is there such a plan, or Firefox with Qt is still only Nokia unofficial work?
kbrosnan
they are not doing Firefox qt, they are doing a mobile version of Firefox (fennec) in a qt desktop
naxa
hi! where can I check-if-already-exists and send my idea-of-a-feature (or feature request, if you prefer) to mozilla?
kbrosnan
technically bugzilla, but explaining it here and i can do the search
drale2k
hello world
kbrosnan
hi
naxa
kbrosnan, it's very simple, I would like if I could turn sound on and off. (Some more advanced os sound control's can do it, but still). Maybe it would be not possible without the cooperation of the plugins, but I imagine it as a starting step in improving the communication about sound between the browser and the website.
kbrosnan, sorry for the late answer, anyway. :)
kbrosnan
naxa: not really possible given the current plugin design, flash and such make native calls to the os to make sound
Firefox does not know that flash is making sound
naxa
kbrosnan, yeah, I thought that. But I think Mozilla could be an initiative in this field. in my opinion, this field needs steps to be taken. needs a pioneer... I think work needs to be started here. :)
they could talk with adobe, and even if no luck, there could be an option what other could follow if they one. mozilla could give it a shot, or, at least, consider it
in my opinion
:)
(of course not only with adobe but also with others)
what do you think?
kbrosnan
it is something that could only be done with the cooperation of plugin vendors. they are only begining to get traction on getting keyboard shortcuts to bubble out of plugins
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=334987 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24418
naxa: ^
naxa
kbrosnan, thanks for the info! :)
hm, anyway, in the meantime, someone (I?) should do a quick and dirty hack around this... if the plugins don't want to emit signals, maybe I could somehow ask the OS about sounding applications and match the ID of firefox's plugins...
well, not quick, but dirty and hack.
coreyman
why is firefox using so much memory and being so slow
is there a list of known addons to cause issues?
it's using 540,100K right now.
naxa
(oh. mine is only max. 380-410M.)
(still too big in my opinion. but I don't know, why.)
have to go. bye!

Why can't I click on flash objects? The buttons appear to be pressed, but nothing actually happens.
