auscompgeek
kid_cudi: can I help you?
kid_cudi
yeah basically, im on a dialup internet conection right now, and firefox takes forever to load a page with images on it, and i see in the loadin bar "transferring data from img.photobucket.com "
so i want to know, how do i STOP firefox from preloading images, i want to SEE THE PAGE, first
i dont give a sh* about the images, i want to see the page so i want firefox to stop trying to load the image,s before showing the page
please tell me thats possible.. it must be
auscompgeek
Firefox wasn't really designed for image sites on dial-up :S
kid_cudi
ffs
so you telling me i cant disable image preloading
what if i get a firefox extension to disable images or something
then after the page has loaded, click EEnable images
auscompgeek
You can disable images completely.
kid_cudi
yeah i can get an addon for that
but i want to enable them after load
auscompgeek
and then right-click images and ask Firefox to load the images in a tab.
         

kid_cudi
but really, i just wanted to change
the order of loading
i want to see text/html first THEN images
cause right now, firefox HOLDS the page, like it doesnt show ANYTHING
auscompgeek
(Action) doesn't want to point the user to another browser :S
kid_cudi
lol
so you're telling me firefox
you can't disable image preloading
sigh
auscompgeek
You can go to Tools > Options > Content > Load images automatically
kid_cudi
yeah thats not really it though lol
auscompgeek
Fine then, go to Opera >.>
kid_cudi
ffs
so opera doesnt preload?
auscompgeek
It loads the image when it comes into view.
I guess Opera Turbo will also speed things up...
kid_cudi
i dont understand why firefox can't have a Config option or something to do this?
how stupid..
auscompgeek
You shouldn't be complaining about Firefox, you should be complaining about Gecko.
kid_cudi
lol
whens firefox losing gecko
and going webkit
does webkit do it too?
auscompgeek
It is highly unlikely that Firefox will use WebKit.
kid_cudi
wtf
auscompgeek
Gecko allows for the extensibility that Firefox offers to you.
kid_cudi
i thought that was already decided?
auscompgeek
Not WebKit.
kid_cudi
wat
i thought this was already done
auscompgeek
What was done?
kid_cudi
i thought it was already decided firefox would be swtiching to webkit end of year
auscompgeek
What? Where did you hear that!? O_o
         

kid_cudi
wtf
auscompgeek
That would break *ALL* add-ons.
kid_cudi
im sure man
auscompgeek
We don't want to break *EVERY SINGLE* add-on...
kid_cudi
wtf im sure i heard this
auscompgeek
That would mean the end of XUL...
kid_cudi
ffs forgetit i duno
is there any addons that tweak firefox configuration to speedup for Dialup internet
auscompgeek
Not that I've heard of.
kid_cudi
ffs
auscompgeek
Though you could *attempt* to use Opera Turbo in Firefox...
kid_cudi
i dont like opera
tried it
i have it installed
auscompgeek
10.50?
I only like it for the Opera Turbo feature :P
kid_cudi
i have 10.5 yea
im downloading lynx browser
ill see if that works
how come
i dont see any image placeholders
when i disable images?
even though about:config says placeholders are on?

hello
i'm having a damned hard time trying to get audio to work for flash in 32 bit firefox 3.6.3 on 64bit debian squeeze
firefox runs in a chroot
audio works fine in other aps

Since some time ago mouse isn't working correctly in firefox in flash apps. It is working for brother's firefox(other account, same machine) and it's working for chromium. Are there any settings I could delete to fix something?
orzo
solution to my sound issue: I need to use a "plain" schroot type rather than "directory" type. Otherwise my /dev bind mount doesn't work properly.

The latest version periodically creates an empty folder in documents... why is that and how do I disable it? :/

is it safe to execute this link javascript:(function(){var%20script=document.createElement('script');script.src='http://static.reclaimprivacy.org/javascripts/privacyscanner.js';document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);})() while logged into facebook?
Gryllida

archangelpetro
is anybody using IETab? from ubuntu?
if so, when i switch any page to rendering as IE, i get 'additional plugins must be installed'... but have no idea what plugins are needed. Can anyone help?
Gryllida
hmm
link to IETab ?
archangelpetro
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419/
i installed it from tools->addons
Gryllida
what is your firefox version?
archangelpetro
3.6.3
Gryllida
IETab Works with Firefox: 3.0 - 3.6a1pre
archangelpetro
and when you switch rendering to explorer, can you load pages?
?
anyone else?
Gryllida
uh
archangelpetro
well, does it render the page if you render it with IE (note you have to right click the tab)
i'll be sure to pencil in this place as a font of infinite wisdom
Gryllida
I said
this addon is incompatible with your Firefox version
archangelpetro
ie tab plus
i didn't see that though. Ie tab is incompatible, but 3.6.3 is ok with ie tab plus, so they say
Gryllida
ah, the "plus" one
archangelpetro
aye :)
Gryllida
Did you uninstall the old "IE tab" before installing "IE Tab Plus FF 3.6+"?
archangelpetro
i only installed the ietab plus, never ietab.. it's a fresh install of ubuntu 10.4
Gryllida
ok
Mentifisto
The latest version periodically creates an empty folder in documents... why is that and how do I disable it?
Gryllida
"downloads" folder?
yes/no?
Mentifisto
yes
Gryllida
see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=474718
this is a known issue
Mentifisto
I was wondering why they even changed the default download folder... if it's already set it shouldn't be changed...
Thanks Gryllida, though
(Action) notes that this action is similar to WMP's behaviour...
Gryllida
Mentifisto, feel free to fix it
http://mxr.mozilla.org is a place to hunt for the code
Mentifisto
Too bad I'm not a programmer. :|
Gryllida
No worries, I'll look into it too..
I didn't find an addon IETab Plus would require.
archangelpetro
itwas something like coralietab
or something like that
bit tjem coral ie tab wasn't available
woo, firefox just halted my system :D
Gryllida
why are you using 3.6.4?
it's beta, isn't it?
archangelpetro
i'm not
3.6.3
Gryllida
hm
WHERE do you see the 'additional plugins must be installed' message? in IE or in Firefox?
archangelpetro
in firefox, in the main viewing window as a drop down alert type thing
Gryllida
can you please take an image?
to be honest, I don't know where to upload it
archangelpetro
ok
Gryllida
archangelpetro, try to upload an image to http://imagebin.ca/
archangelpetro
ok, will do, just need to finish some code

where does firefox get its dns results?
it always points me to the opends guide site, but the opendns wildcard resolving is worked around.
nslookup says i get NXDOMAIN for unexisting dns names
yet firefox takes me to guide, instead of google
kbrosnan
the os
ggergely
hmm. strange. why do i get diffrent result for nslookup and firefox
opendns fu*ks something
found out
opendns is evil
nslookup www.google.com
Server:10.0.0.2
Address:10.0.0.2#53
Non-authoritative answer:
www.google.comcanonical name = google.navigation.opendns.com.
Name:google.navigation.opendns.com
Address: 208.69.35.230
they fake dns lookups

I'm running firefox 3.5.9 under Linux. I can't log in to one of my own sites as it doesn't appear to be saving session(?) cookies. I'm set to accept cookies under Preferences. Any idea what else I should look for (ie. something in about:config)?
nm. I finally found the problem. The website was listed in the exceptions for places from which to accept cookies. Don't know how that happened but I removed the exception and I can log in to my site now.

This isn't a Firefox question, but it's about Kompozer, which is also XUL. What can I do if I try to launch it from the command-line, but it just exits almost immediately, with no window opening, and no error messages. Here's the last few lines of strace: http://pastebin.mozilla.org/729634
(Now it's a Segmentation Fault.)
