firefox (current version 3.5.9 - ubuntu 9.10) has stopped asking me if i wish it to save my tabs on close, happened a few months ago too
can somebody remind me what boolean i need to set to true in about:config?
that is really buggy
i fixed it by following the 5 steps on http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Firefox+does+not+ask+to+save+tabs+and+windows+on+exit
strange thing is, i already had everything set as instructed, what i did do was uncheck "warn me when closing multiple tabs" and then recheck it
so i didn't change anything but turning on and off worked

Allright all the devs here - there's some serious issues with my firefox (3.6.4) - It just refuses to open up under windows 7. Weirdly, it just opens up on every alternate restart of my windows machine..
it wouldt even populate itself as a process in windows (can be seen thro ' Task manager) otherwise. Anyone seen issus like this before ?

How come with I close popup type windows or input prompt boxes, I always get two input boxes from firefox asking if I want to close all tabs without saving, save and close all, or cancel?
auscompgeek
attempting to close alerts, inputs and prompts causes Firefox to ask if you want to close the browser? :S

hi. does anybody know how can i log chats in chatzilla? is there a plugin?
auscompgeek
/log
er, /log 1
for every single view you want to log
also, this isn't a ChatZilla channel.
         

tengopreguntas
nobody is in the chatzilla channel
this is the closest i could find
auscompgeek
then you should connect to moznet and join #chatzilla
chatzilla is too small to really have an established channel here on freenode.
xiven
Well, it asks me (twice) if I want to close all tabs (Yes..Save, Yes..NoSave, Cancel)
auscompgeek
tengopreguntas: for any other chatzilla questions, *please* visit irc://moznet/chatzilla
xiven
Even if its just a CoolPreview window within the page which I close, it asks that..it gets quite annoying sometimes

can anyone help me quickly, I am trying to download the source for the Mozilla ActiveX control (To use in cedega for running WoW), now on the web it refers to:
"The ActiveX source code is part of the Mozilla source tree. Tarballs are usually to be found here. All the code is contained in the subdirectory mozilla/embedding/browser/activex/src."
but for the life of me I cant find anything on the ftp servers. or do I have to download the entire source?
the url where I am reading @ the moment if it makes any difference: http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/control.htm
nobody?

firefox doesn't load if I store my profile on a ramdisk and symlink to it if I have certain addons installed. any ideas why this may be?
for example, storing my profile on /dev/shm and having my home directory symlink to it works fine with a fresh install but not if I install xmarks (for instance)
to be slightly more exact, the very first time you restart firefox after installing xmarks it works but after that it doesn't
copy the profile off /dev/shm to the disk and it magically works again

Why does Firefox claim that a SSL/TLS certificate is "invalid" whenever it is not signed by an authority?
Do the makers of Firefox realize what problems it gives site owners who cannot pay the large amount of money for a CA signed one?
Or who cannot get anyone to sign it for some reason.

mysgroda: "invalid" and "not trusted" are different things
mysgroda
grreat: But it says "invalid".
That's the whole point.
If it said "not trusted", it would be fine.
grreat
if your certificate is invalid, then you are doing something wrong. Otherwise would say "not trusted" i guess. And i'm just guessing
mysgroda
It says invalid because it is not CA signed.
That is the point.
grreat
yes that is wrong
mysgroda
Yep.
So Firefox should change its phrasing.
To not make it so "scary".
grreat
or firefox itself would turn "scary" instead
i agree

Anyone can tell me how to activate console.log in Firebug?

fyi to anyone who runs into a similar problem as me: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=551152 seems to detail the problem (the xpti engine is broken in 3.6.3 wrt filesystem links)

Hail_Spacecake
is there a way to control what order extensions that control the same thing take effect in?
i.e. I have tab mix plus and vimperator and they both seem to control which tab is focused after closing a tab
and I want tab mix plus to take priority
