That should fix the ping -> ping.com problem.
You can go to about:config and search for "keyword" to change the pref.

Daman
is there a minefield channel
plugin container is crashing without a crash report being available
easily reproducable
ah, I see, that's probably because of the network issues not allowing a crash report to be submitted
but it produces a windows "close/debug?" box, not sure if that usually happens on crashes
rjohnson19
Daman: Its not the network issues, its a known bug though.

Occurs outside of youtube as well, specifically in omgpop.com's pictionary
without it being necessary to click anything which is a circumstantially large difference
ex: just visiting a link like http://omgpop.com/i/drawmything/7p3gz_1vtf4

I am trying to download Firefox 3.5 for Windows. I tried http://www.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html and it just directs me to a 3.6 install, which is not what I need.
kbrosnan
Severian: works for me
Severian
In what way does it work?
Are you saying it downloads Firefox 3.5?
If so, I wonder if the web page is so poorly designed that it works only if you have javascript enabled,
Yes, that is it. Thanks. The mozilla.com site is just bad for people who care about security.
SirTopHat
interesting
reinstalling the Flash plugin solved my problem

Good evening! I've got an issue that I think may be a Firefox bug, but I want to see if anyone else other than me is having the issue. http://brandonkonkle.com/projects/ - in FF3.6.3 on Mac for me one of the anchor tags is being spontaneously repeated, even though it doesn't show up that way in markup. This completely screws up the layout. Is everyone else seeing the same thing?
On my screen, there's a huge black box with several smaller green-outlined boxes sitting on top of the layout, obscuring a large portion of it. This doesn't happen on any other browser, or in Adobe's BrowserLab using FF3.6

tholl583xx
helo
ehlo
hello
my new tabs seem to ramdomly open either to the right of my current tab, or sometimes at the far right
this seems to be different behaviour to my old fedora11 box package for firefox
mynameisdeleted
I was thinking about makign a browser stats page which lets people select "I dont know" for their browser
I bet I could make it 45% of users have "I dont know" for a browser, 5% internet explorerr 6 , 7 or 8
and rest firefox and chrome and safari
I think if you ask users what browser they use and have I dont know as an option that makes the ie usage numbers go way down
that would have to be a browser choice stat and not a usage stat
kbrosnan
tholl583xx: about:config , browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent , false is what you want. the behavior is links are opened to the right of the current tab. new tabs are placed at the end of the row
kenpark
Hello, where can I get support for the weave addon?
Weave lsot all my Bookmarks and I am looking for a way to get it back
bobo123
kenpark: I think there is a bakup file of the bookmark file somewhere... i fyou havent changed the bookmarks more of course.... not sure though.... i don't know what the wave addon is but you should probably ask the person making that addon?
         

kenpark
bobo123: i got it irc.mozilla.org #labs
bobo123
I guess it is some work-in-progress thing then? be sure to make an bug-report for them
poutine
Is it GTK's fault I can't select text from the middle if it's in an editbox? That single thing really pisses me off
HTML input control
if it's disabled htat is
mconnor
poutine: because it selects all on click?
disabled? less sure already!
poutine
yeah mconnor
mconnor
poutine: do normal textboxes let you do that?
poutine
http://www.mercyforanimals.org/ohdairy/embed.aspx <-Trying to watch this video of cows being beaten, and it is messing up on me with pause and progress as well as "watch on youtube" in the bottom right, so I'm trying to go directly to the youtube URL which is in the middle of the disabled input box, but I can't seelct only one portion
mconnor, I'm pretty sure I can
but I don't run into disabled editboxes that much, so I asked if it was GTK
mconnor
they're not GTK controls
though it's possible we map to their behaviour
poutine
so where does the blame for this behavior lie, say if you were using ubuntu GNU/Linux
mconnor
poutine: dunno, honestly, file a bug?
bobo123
is it possible to set so firefox allways takes the ctrl-D keypress even when there is a flash playing?
mconnor
bobo123: no
bobo123: flash has to let the keystroke through
bobo123
thats bad.... I guess it would be possible with a special modified version of gnash (or what the other new one is called...
kbrosnan
mconnor: sounds like a flash issue, http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2010/04/introducing-google-docs-drawings.html click the right most button the text boxes only select all
bobo123
but I guess it is still to early for them yet
mconnor
ohh... it's in flash content
kbrosnan
so it would either be a youtube flash player issue or an adobe issue
Skipp_OSX
I am having a very strange problem
in FF 3.5.3 on Mac OS X 10.5 when I visit microsoft.com it redirects me to the mobile version of the site
kbrosnan
type about: in the address bar, what does build identifier line say?
Skipp_OSX
kbrosnan, well, I upgraded to 3.6.3 and now it goes to the correct site
and I overwrote the old version... so I guess we'll never know
kbrosnan
glad we could help. :)
Skipp_OSX
kbrosnan, something must have been messed up, perhaps a fresh copy was all I needed
elijah
Where can I find previous developer snapshots?
Sorry, I mean Developer Preview http://www.mozilla.org/projects/devpreview/releasenotes/#download
I need a 2.5 version
3.5
I am trying to get this working, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10493/
And since I cannot have multiple versions of FF installed at once I thought the developer previews would be a good workaround
I just need an old version to run the "Backend Software Information" module for when I need to use it.
kbrosnan
why can't you install more than one version of Firefox?
elijah
kbrosnan: Didn't know I could do that, where can I find all previous versions. Been looking for 10 minutes now.
I am here but can't find download link http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/3.5/releasenotes/
This link is dead http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.5/contrib/
kbrosnan
http://www.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
elijah
Closer but those are all 3.5.9, I need something older.
kbrosnan
why? that addon is targeted at firefox 1.5 to 3.6a1 which would include 3.5.9
elijah
I am trying now, last time I tried it it said it worked but it didn't.
I was hoping 3.1 would be foolproof
Yeah, Mac won't let me install two version of FF. Is there a workaround I am missing?
kbrosnan
use folders
mconnor
or rename the .app
kbrosnan
rename the app bundle should work as well
elijah
thanks
K, that worked but Backend Software Info is saying it isn't compatible with 3.5.9, do you know where I can find 3.1?
oh, wait
got it
Two versions of add on installed
Thanks guys
TuomasT
Is it possible to disable the suggestions under address bar?
sdwilsh
under privacy in the preferences
set location bar stuff to "nothing"
TuomasT
sdwilsh: Thanks
It is not for privacy, but I sometimes get a suggested one instead of what I type when typing in fast there
sdwilsh
it should only use what you type unless you have some add-on installed
