hi all
sorry for stupid Q: but would anyone tell me in one sentence what is the main difference between seamonkey and firefox ..
i hate firefox very much and i am not willing to use it more
Sir_Konrad
hey you guys, I'm having an issue with my website http://www.a113podcasting.com/ in Firefox and only in Firefox. Can someone look at it just so I know that it isn't just me?
Aetherfox_
hi Aetherbot
Aetherbot
yo Aetherfox_
Aetherfox_
Aetherbot insult me
Aetherbot
Aetherfox_: You are nothing but a vain stack of fly-bitten cat bladders.
TannerF
Aetherfox: would ##Aetherbot be a better place to test your bot?
(Just sayin')
Aetherfox_
TannerF: I want people to teach him stuff, so he can help #firefox helpers
         

TannerF
You should *probably* ask an op first. on freenode bots are abused much more than they would be on moznet.
i just msg firebot on moznet and use what he says here
Aetherfox_
TannerF: I asked a few ops, and none replied, so I'm just bringing him in.
TannerF
if no one replies that means "Just wait until i'm back" not "Yeah, go for it"
Aetherfox_
TannerF: OK, sorry. I didn't know of the bot etiquette
TannerF
neither do i, but waiting for an answer is usually a good idea.
Aetherfox_
Should I shut him down in the meanwhile?
TannerF
i'm not sure
Sir_Konrad
Hey are there any Firefox for Mac users in here?
hello?
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: I'm on Mac
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: can you test http://www.a113podcasting.com/? I'm having an issue with the "Contact Us" button.
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: The Contact Us page displays fine for me
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: it's not on a different row then the others?
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: yeah
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: It is on a different row?
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: in fact, it is
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: yeah, I'm having that same issue. It doesn't do that on Firefox for Windows or any other browser on Mac.
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: Do you use WordPress?
*
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: yes.
Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: try changing the theme
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: do you know of a solution?
         

Aetherfox_
Sir_Konrad: try asking in #wordpress
Sir_Konrad
Aetherfox_: I know that the theme's CSS file has something in it that isn't compatible with FF for Mac, but I'm trying to figure out what it is.

hi, my firefox would not show dialogue boxes anymore for example for "save images"

fanthomas
I've got prolem loading an articles from http://ubuntu-tutorials.com i.e. http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2010/05/02/ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx-torrent-link-collection/
after few seconds the page becomes blank
is the site infected or do I have some problem
Konqueror displays the page without big problems

oh btw, amd64

It seems like C-i is not working correctly on my FF on Mac. How can I check who is using the binding? (The binding doesn't work only on FF)

hi, is there a way to get canvas fallback working when JS is disable ?
fallback is supposed to show when canvas isn't supported or JS is disable. But on Fx 3.6.3 the fallback doesn't so up

Argafal
is there any "choose flash plugin to use extension/userscript"? i want to use both, gnash and adobe flash and i'd like each flash plugin to ask which one i'd like to use (as in don't start it per default but offer two buttons)
fornext
hi. Is there a way to get the old "ctrl+tab" behaviour back?
Argafal
The "flash switcher" extensions requires restart of the browser :-( that seems to be the only thing available.
does anyone know the feature described here? http://tech.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1359159&cid=29323301
I also learned that Ubufox (Ubuntu Firefox) has a "Manage Content Plugins" menu to probably switch between Gnash and Adobe. Is it possible to get this functionality in the "real" firefox?
more question of that kind. i have symlinks to both, gnash and adobe flash, in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins now. http://nopaste.info/3c3531ca7c.html in tools - addons - plugins i disabled gnash and reloaded the page. i even restarted firefox but youtube keeps showing a black rectangle where the flash player would be supposed to be.
if i enable gnash the gnash plugin loads in taht location so that seems to be fine.

I got a little question, I am using a website which offers me to download appointments in .ics files, so that they can be imported in a calendar
CAiRO
what is the point in packaging parts of an extension as .jar file? i've tried various bash based build scripts but they generated xpi files with jars in them do never work
no_maam
and I am using google calendar
CAiRO
in contrast, if just zip the whole folder of my extension and name the zip file .xpi it works without any problems
so i don't get why those scripts to all those complicated operations for no value
no_maam
is it possible to configure firefox in a way, that downloaded .ics file (I can figure out the mime type) are handelt by google calendar?
CAiRO
like copying and moving around files, generating a new manifest file etc.
why the heck they do all that if they could have zipped a folder?
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bash_build_script
scripts like that
Peng_
CAiRO: In the past, using a .jar was the only option.
CAiRO
aha, so since what version is it enough to just zip the extension folders?
just to make sure i don't provide wrong version compatibility settings
Peng_
Shrug. It's been a pretty long time now.
CAiRO
ok, so i can assume all 3.x versino will work with the zipped folders?
versions
Peng_
CAiRO: Yes.
CAiRO
ok, thanks a lot
by the way, is there any reason why the extensions are ending with .xpi instead of zip?
Peng_
CAiRO: I'm curious, could you elavorate on "never work"?
CAiRO: I don't know the reasons behind that decision. I suppose it's useful to be able to distinguish between a Firefox extension and a normal ZIP file.
CAiRO
never work is probably not very specific.. i don't know why those build scripts didn't work
i didn't get any error messages but the generated .xpi files from them did not work in another browser profile
they didn't show any errors after installing or activating the extension
so it just didn't work, even though the installation of the generated xpi files seems to work fine, no error messages
it started working when the xpi file was just a zipped version of my folder
of my extension folder
i didn't try to understand what those build scripts tried to do
it didn't look very useful
it's just a pitty that there a dozens of outdated "ff extension howtos" out there
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bash_build_script <-- last modified in 2006
probably outdated too
mozilla shouldn't publish outdated scripts without a hint
lol, the whole mozillazine.org is outdated
last update on june 30th 2009

soilah
hello! i use arora besides firefox for browsing (ubuntu 10.4). if i press [ctrl] a letter appears for all links or text-fields on the page, so that you can navigate with the keboard in a very comfortable way. once i had something like that for firefox, but i just cant remember how that worked and where i got it from (google didnt help either). you guys may have some ideas?
fanthomas
soilah: something like Vimperator?
achury
Hello: I love Firefox, but I have a couple of suggestions:
1- Why when I want to print a web page the program must to download again the page and images from the web? This is very bad for the people with slow connections.
2- I want that firefox will include an option to save the full page to a single file, may be as mhtml, OOo (ODF) or as pdf. May be exist a plugin for make this job.
2- When I want to save image, sometimes appear that the program download again the image from the net. Are not the images on cache?
4- When I want to save the full page the firefox downloads agian the full page
When I want to see the source code of the web page is shown quickly without download, so the full source html is in memory. Why must the firefox program download agian the page to save it???
soilah
fanthomas: thats not really what i think about. i uploaded a screen of what im searching for: http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/342/test2fa.png
achury
On the menu "Tools"-"Page Info" I can see all the individual imege files and I can save images to disk!! So the the images are in memory too! Why is needed to download them again to save the page?
kbrosnan
achury: there are lots of reasons why the cache might fail
fanthomas

Hello what mean error 228?
kbrosnan
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Unable+to+install+add-ons#Download_Error_228
Lefantomedurezo
but cash was albready enable
I have 50Mo of cash
kbrosnan
then the latter software issues may be the problem
Lefantomedurezo
but somebody said they have no problem to download adblock plus
kbrosnan
should not be any issues, 100s maybe 1000s of people install abp daily
Lefantomedurezo
and how can we download the add on by the port nuber 80?
and how can we download the add on by the port number 80?
kbrosnan
addons.mozilla.org is only reachable via https/443
Lefantomedurezo
so how can we do if the network's aster decide to open only the port 80?
or if we want to download on on PC to install on another PC?

hi
im looking for a plugin or a way to keep all my firefox settings, bookmarks and plugins (everything!) in sync across multiple machines with different OSes
pc500
Is there anyway to get firefox to print a page "as it is" including all colored backgrounds and all instead of making it "printer-friendly"?
Aethaeryn
I have Fennec pre-alpha on my Nexus One :)
with adblock plus
(well, it's working but I don't see the stop sign to be able to tweak it)
the keyboard only shows up on portrait mode, as if it expects the device to have a physical keyboard :(
Any chance of multitouch?
I enjoy it on my browser because it's the only way to get the zoom "just right" to focus on a certain column or element of the page.
It makes reading much more enjoyable.

i can see that firefox is available in kannada language... but i cannot find one here -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:3
any ideas?
dashs
How do I find the program assigned as a helper app by a given extension? (.ram)
sdwilsh
njathan: it comes bundled with the application
njathan: if you download it in kannada from here, it will come already installed http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
njathan
sdwilsh: i cannot download it in english and then add language packs of my choice?
sdwilsh
njathan: not sure all localizations do that
njathan
sdwilsh: :-(
sdwilsh: but does a kannada language build have english as an alternative prebuilt?
sdwilsh
no, I don't believe it does
builds are only one language AFAIK
njathan: you might ask the Kannada localization team about it https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Localization_Teams#Kannada_.28kn.2Ckn-IN.29
njathan
thanks for the pointer sdwilsh...

I'm trying to set up a deployment of Firefox on a Windows domain. Presently, nearly all of the workstations have 3.0.11 installed, and I want to deploy 3.5.8 to them. Is there a way to force the installer to run, even if Firefox is presently running on the computer, so that the next time they start FF it will already be upgraded?
Veliouras
hello
