kbrosnan: Yes I most certainly did... I just can't find any content with which to test
I was hoping mozilla would have a webm gallery or test page of content
zpao
bakers: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=trailers&aq=f&webm=1
(adding &webm=1 to youtube search results shows only webm videos)
bakers
zpao: OHHH! I was adding &webm=1 to the content, not the search
zpao
though you'd need to opt-in to the html5 beta
sdwilsh
haha
zpao: yeah, the search
I know, fail
also, minefield doesn't support it yet, right?
zpao
correct, only the special builds. i think it's still under review
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=566245
or maybe https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=566243
sdwilsh: yea, the 2nd one is the tracking for all the parts

anyone heard of flash causing ubuntu 9.10 to lock up?
nanonyme
Open or closed Flash?
(not personally heard but wouldn't be surprised if you're talking of Adobe Flash; it tends to crash pretty gloriously when it does and if display drivers can't handle, locks up whole system)

it's me!!

evening
I recently upgraded to Lucid, and with it, to Thunderbird 3. Is there a way to revert thunderbirds search box (top right) back to the old style? (I prefer the quick filter to a full search engine)
rjohnson19
jenda: use the magnifying glass icon to switch to filter modes
jenda
rjohnson19: thanks!
Saved my life there :)
rjohnson19
np
jenda
Or, if not my life, some hardware at least ;)
Possibly just some sweets.

I can right-click a form and save the search as a keyword, but is there any way to add it to the search bar?
sircrazy
whenever i download a file, it lags at the very end, last 1%, then it says the download failed. Firefox 3.6.3, Windows 7 -32 bit. a few plugins but none that i think affect the download. Also running privoxy on the computer
(Action) stretches and puts his feet up thinking he might be around for a while :):D:D:)
additional info. if i pause the file when it gets to the last part, usually example: 31.6mb out of 31.6mb it switches to unknown time left. if i pause it there then unpause it, it will finish. optherwise i get the failed message
zjblabs
firefox alone it appears is getting click-jacked
I suspect some malicious plugin/extension that has somehow masked itself from the installed plugin/extension list
how can I fix this?
noscript keeps blocking (thank god) redirections to sites like "
when I click on google search links mainly
kleanchap
Are therer desktop applications (not the typical www browsers) that will read the RSS feed from Blogs and Forums AND allow you to reply to it?
Azalyn

auscompgeek
what are we demonstrating...?
azizLIGHTS
i want to use firefox on 3 pc but want the same thing
s
like bookmark password
extenision
dirkson
Hallo all. I'd like to share a home directory around the local network. What would happen if I tried to make a couple firefoxes on a couple machines all share one .mozilla directory?
azizLIGHTS
i ewant to go to any pc, and have my firefox
the one with all the bookmarks passwords and extension and setting
not some new firefox
how to do it
auscompgeek
azizLIGHTS: Use Firefox Sync.
Let me get the URL for you.
dirkson: it'd probably work, but not a good idea...
azizLIGHTS
i was thinking of installing firefo on usb key?
or maybe a online folder like dropbox
auscompgeek
You could do that as well...
But running Firefox off a USB is slooooow...
         

dirkson
auscompgeek: Why?
auscompgeek: And is there any way to make it a good idea?
auscompgeek
dirkson: what exactly are you trying to do anyway?
dirkson
auscompgeek: I want to set up one encrypted, nas drive to be my home directory from all my computers. This way I immediately have access to the same settings on every computer.
auscompgeek
dirkson: ohh...
dirkson
auscompgeek: I may have to scrap that, though :-/
auscompgeek
dirkson: it could work...
dirkson
auscompgeek: Well, I suppose I could try it, while leaving my current system in place. Just /see/ what issues it has!
auscompgeek
azizLIGHTS: Just remembered there are a number of syncronisation add-ons :S
azizLIGHTS
uh huh
dirkson
auscompgeek: I thought firefox might be a good example app to investigate for issues, though. Ubiquitous, flexible, etc.
auscompgeek
azizLIGHTS: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10868 is by Mozilla.
azizLIGHTS
so is running firefox off a dropbox slow as well
auscompgeek
dirkson: interesting, isn't it? :)
dirkson
auscompgeek: So far, the gigabit network /and/ the drive both seem fast enough for my usual tasks that this shouldn't be /horribly/ laggy, so I've got that much solved.
auscompgeek
azizLIGHTS: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2410 is by a third party which can syncronise across browsers as well.
choose what you need ;)
Those are the well known ones, there are others, obviously.
azizLIGHTS
hmm so u have no opinion on using online folder and isntall to there?
or alt east move the profile folder to dropbox
or online folder
auscompgeek
Most syncronisation add-ons don't syncronise the whole profile.
Terabyte

auscompgeek

auscompgeek
hi
pierre_
when i type keywords in the location bar (where url is shown), firefox launchs a search on google. do you know how to change the web engines please ?
web engine*
auscompgeek
open up about:config
then click the button on the warning
type keyword.url into the filter box
double click keyword.url
then type in the prefix for the search.
e.g. http://www.bing.com/search?q=
pierre_
ok thank you. and what can i do if the web engine is using cgi please ? ( www.scroogle.org )
auscompgeek
use http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/nbbw.cgi?Gw=
or https://ssl.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/nbbwssl.cgi?Gw=
pierre_
thank you (how did you get the Gw by the way ?)
auscompgeek
it's on the page.
pierre_
(Action) is going to sleep

kbrosnan
hello
wizkoder
sorry lost my connection. how can I watch html5 videos with firefox? is there a kubuntu package that can do that?
kbrosnan
you can watch ogg based <video>
if you want to try an alpha build there is http://nightly.mozilla.org/webm that can work with youtube
Waste

nanonyme
kbrosnan: What does the Firefox link against to get the codec support on Linux?
And decoding and whatnot.
Does it just use ffmpeg?
kbrosnan
libogg is build directly in the source, distros may link to their distribution of libogg
it does not use ffmpeg in any way
nanonyme
Okay.
gionnico
hi
can you edit firefox config from cli?
kbrosnan
user/prefs.js is a text file if you are not running Firefox you can write to that
azazul`

I'm on 3.6.4 beta ..I have a peculiar problem. Firefox just refuses to open intermittently - In sense, it wouldn't even manifest itself under 'Processes' in the Windows Task Manager (I'm on win 7)
This issue was prevalent in the earlier version of FF as well
and sometimes when I'm using FF suddenly t wouldn't open up URLs - eventough it is actually connected to the internet and other browsers can access URLS.
anyone?
kkrev
I have experienced major performance degredation upgrading to 3.6.3. Switching tabs pauses. URL autocomplete pauses. Other performance issues, such as with scrolling. Are there any known fixes? I have adblock and xmarks installed.
