Hello, what is the best way to lockdown my linux users to install any firefox addon or to about:config modifications ?

uberpinguin: updating running processes in windows does not work well
epaphus
kbrosnan, thanks. do parental controls ONLY help with URL filtering?
uberpinguin
I was afraid of that
kbrosnan
epaphus: depends on the software provider
epaphus
i was thinking using parental control for limiting people to ad addons?
         

kbrosnan
parental controls are not part of firefox. unless you are talking about something distro provided
epaphus
oh i meant the firefox addons called parental controls.. like foxfilter
kbrosnan,
kbrosnan
never used it
epaphus
kbrosnan, thanks
kbrosnan, would it be bad if I lock with linux permissions the .mozilla directory in /home for that particular user? so he can read only?
kbrosnan
yes
epaphus
kbrosnan, why? temp stuff?
kbrosnan
the cache is there and i've head people who do similar end up with firefox just re-writing files with normal user permssions

why does firefox function so differently in linux? it seems to work much better in windows
when i log in to usatoday.com and try to post with linux firefox, when i click on submit nothing happens (the post doesn't get submitted) - this problem doesn't occur in windows firefox - both are the same version

I visited the page to install flash player plugin and in the first instance I choose to not install "McAfee Secutrity Scan PLus"... then the applet instructed to restart Firefox to finish the installation.. when it restarted it installed also the McAfee trash
what a bug on that plugin
bbeattie
I have a linux box that always runs as a specific user but I need firefox to have "personalities" (basically their own bookmarks) but not have access to the filesystem (ie: download files, print, or do anything but go to websites/watch videos, etc)
The kiosk addon doesn't work for bookmarks (and suffers other problems). I've wondered about chrooting stuff, but again not sure. Any ideas?
BlueBoyz
My browser always died suddenly when I was visiting the site http://github.com/facebook/php-sdk/, why?
skydrome

Cork

bp-...
BlueBoyz
report id: 72d1d424-8c10-4136-9537-7f85bb4a7553

Having a strange problem where for a few weeks now when I go to a site with an embedded YouTube video, it shows the video, ready to be started, all buttons appear fine.. but I get no response when hitting the play button... Works fine if I pull up YouTube.com and search the name of the video.. seems just to be an issue with embedded YouTube.... other embedded flash player works fine, only have noticed the issue with YouTube specifically... any he

hello
everytime I want to download any pluggin, I have error 228
so it is because the network's master open only the port 80
so how can I get the .xpi's file by the 80's port?
is there an FTP which propose theses files?
:?:

Cork
error -228 isn't about the port
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox_:_FAQs_:_Uninstall_Extensions#Corrupt_extension_files
malu
hi
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: the xpi files are sent over normal http, so port 80 should be all you need
hmm or was it https
(Action) checks
malu
Some of the vidoes are not play in my firefox, am using ubuntu 9.04
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: you need port 443 open for outbound connection to be able to grab the files, but you wouldn't even be able to list the extensions with that port closed
Lefantomedurezo
but the webmaster will never want to open anything
because I'm in the university.
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: thats not the problem, as you can get to the extensions page you have what you need
Lefantomedurezo
and since I have no internet at home, is there a solution ?
Cork
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722 <-- if you can view this page you have all you need
Lefantomedurezo: right click the button and select save link as...
Lefantomedurezo
since download the xpi 's file from one PC to install on another PC :?:
Cork
just d&d in in firefox/the addon window
*it in
Lefantomedurezo
I can see this NoScript 1.9.9.74
but error 228
why if my cash is enable?
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: check the kb article i linked to before
thats your problem, its not about the ports or connection
Lefantomedurezo
Cork: I have deleted the 3 files
but the problem is still here
Cork
hmm
and you closed firefox while you did this?
all windows
Lefantomedurezo
and yesterday I asked a friend to make a try in the school
he has error 228
so I asked him to retry at home
he had no error at his home
Cork
you testing with the same computer?
Lefantomedurezo
I cloded all firefox's windows befor delleting theses files
he testing with the same computer
Cork
at home and at school that is
Lefantomedurezo
yes
Cork
no clue what i might be caused by then
Lefantomedurezo
so is there a way to download the file with another navigator like elinx on ssh :?:
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: have you tried right clicking and selecting save link as...?
Lefantomedurezo
yes
/home/mint/Desktop/addon-1865-latest.xpi ne pourra être enregistré car le fichier source ne peut être lu.
Réessayez plus tard ou contactez l'administrateur du serveur.
in fact it said
addon-1865-latest.xpi couldn't be saved because the source file couldn't be read
please try it again or contact the network's guy
Cork
Lefantomedurezo: ya, so it sounds like your admin is doing some kind of blocking
not much that can be done about it i think
Lefantomedurezo
ok
now I have the link I 'm going to try from bshellz

is it enougth to backup the profile folder to backup all of thunderbird?

hm
the -Createprofile option appears not to work with Firefox 3.6.3
firefox -Createprofile "profile_name profil_dir" doesn't do anything
kbrosnan
-CreateProfile i think, double checking
yes, https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Command_Line_Options
yak
yesm sorry I mistyped
I'm actually doing it according to that document you just linked
-Createprofile new_profile will do it
but I'd like have a custom profile directory, without the hash
kbrosnan
os?
yak
Gentoo
and Windows XP SP2 too
it won't print an error, It simply won't create the profile
kbrosnan
is firefox running?
works for me on a Ubuntu vm
yak
with the custom dir?
absolute or relative path?

Is there anyway that I can send Ajax requests to third party domains without using proxy on my domain?
kbrosnan
yak: absloute

kbrosnan, Examples seems to be giving Exceptions in Firefox 3.6.3.

I just installed firefox on a win7 machine but it will not launch
it just gose right to the firefox has crashed window
awox
Where does firefox store proxylogin information?
I want to make a hot-key to switch between NTLM authentication and custom (stolen T/L login) authentication :D
kbrosnan
kateweb: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Mozilla+Crash+Reporter#Viewing_reports_outside_of_Firefox
kateweb
the problem is on a windows machine
not a mac
kbrosnan
BNVSAJ: works for me
kateweb
libray/aplication support is a mac thing
kbrosnan
kateweb: click the show content for windows link near the top
awox: i think you'll need a proxy switching extension
awox
hmn, yeah that might work
kateweb
it seems the only thing in the submited files are crash id's
kbrosnan
kateweb: that is fine, would you give a couple of the crash ids to me
kateweb
hold on a sec let me send them to this computer
bp-0a62ae31-b52e-45f2-bd18-638f42100504
Crash ID: bp-251a9bef-828e-4597-a09f-342bb2100504
bp-36713e46-1ac9-4c7d-8004-da5442100504
kbrosnan: isthat engough?
kbrosnan
yes
the bug about that crash suggests it is a font related issue
kateweb
heem
i don't think this guy has installs any fonts
kbrosnan
kateweb
i belive you tho
now i have to dig thro the installed fonts
ok i found 24 funky named(numberd really) fonts I cant move them but my best guess is that they are the problem
