How fix - enabling extensions requres FF restart
Is there any valid reason that changing enablement of an extension requires a shutdown & restart of Firefox?
Surely enabling an extension shouldn't require the user to restart ff. - That requires either redownloading all the open windows, or saving desired info & then closing down some windows so they don't have to be reloaded.

Anyone have an answer?

Any answer for the above question while I was out?
How can one start a 2nd instance of FF, with different extensions running?
What is the proper way to get Adobe Flash running in 64 bit KUbuntu Linux with Firefox on a 64 bit AMD processor?
rjohnson19
nickee_: use -no-remote -P to make and run a 2nd profile side by side, see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Command_line_arguments

rjohnson19: thanks :)

What is the proper way to get Adobe Flash running in 64 bit KUbuntu Linux with Firefox on a 64 bit AMD processor?
Adobe says they have discontinued work on their 64 bit version for now.
Is it ok to use the only version of AF 10.1 they make available for linux on a KUbuntu 10.4 AND 64 bit version, running FF?
         

kbrosnan
nickee_: 32 bit won't work by default, your distro may have a way to run 32 bit firefox or a program called nspluginwrapper can allow you to run 32 bit flash in 64 bit firefox

kbrosnan: thanks :)

Hey all. What prettyprinter do you guys use, and on what setting?
karsten
Iceweasel/Debian lenny: somehow I've got control-key accelerators modified in Firefox. Renaming my ~/.mozilla/firefox directory (restoring defaults) restores correct behavior, but I've got no idea what settings are responsible for this.
C-n doesn't open a new window, C-f doesn't find, and C-k (emacs kill-line) replaces the X11 paste buffer with the killed line contents (annoying).
Any ideas as to where to look would be appreciated.
I believe I did this initially by trying to creat more emacs-like bindings for firefox. Now regretting the attempt.
kbrosnan
karsten: does renaming your prefs.js fix ehte issue?
quietstorm: prettyprinter?
quietstorm
Like a code formatter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_print#Code_formatting_and_beautification
I know astyle is used in the C++ community. Do you guys just comform to the coding standards, not using a pretty printing tool?
karsten
kbrosnan: No.
rato
what are the options for about:* ?
kbrosnan
quietstorm: are you talking about the source code or view source. or other
rato: about:about
rato
kbrosnan: thx
kbrosnan
karsten: renaming the extensions folder in your profile?
rato
kbrosnan: it didn't work !
kbrosnan
what version?
rato
3.6
karsten
kbrosnan: yep.
rato
kbrosnan: 3.6.3
kbrosnan
rato: ah it is only on the trunk
quietstorm
rato: Is this what you mean? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/About:#Mozilla-specific_about:_addresses
kbrosnan
karsten: guess you could rename it back and tools > addons > extensions > enable and disable addons till you figure out the cause
         

rato
quietstorm: it's ! awesome
karsten
kbrosnan: Do I go through the extensions one-at-a-time moving them? How do I ID them with names like {3d7eb24f-2740-49df-8937-200b1cc08f8a} ?
quietstorm
You mean "not awesome"? :-)
karsten
kbrosnan: OK....
rato
quietstorm: thx :)
quietstorm
rato: No problem.
karsten
kbrosnan: Ah ha: "firemacs".
(Action) uninstalls.
kbrosnan: Thanks for your help.
kbrosnan: I'd *like* to have emacs keybindings in editor dialogs, but not overriding the rest of the browser's features.
kbrosnan: Any ideas for that?
kbrosnan
karsten: gnome?
either way http://kb.mozillazine.org/Emacs_Keybindings_%28Firefox%29
quietstorm: in the source there are coding guide lines. for view source, not much is done, the code is turned into parsable html and that is about it. check out the view source on google.com, one long line.
quietstorm
kbrosnan: Thanks for the info! I guess for formatting source code you don't really enforce one? Just the style guide?
kbrosnan
quietstorm: the existing style of the file has priority unless someone wants to go through the entire file and fix it
quietstorm
Ah, ok. Interesting.

I'm on fedora12, and I'm wondring how can I set up firefox to not be on "work offline" every time I start it, can you help me please?
kbrosnan
option 1 correctly configure your wireless so that Network Manager is aware of it, make sure you are connected before starting.
option 2 about:config toolkit.networkmanager.disable
Taha_
OK, thank you

I'm looking at all of these new Google SSL OpenSearch addons, and I'm not really sure how safe they are? They specify the https in the search url, but they send things via GET (appended to links).
I'm guessing GETs get encrypted later - after you've established the connection. But before you did, if you send a request to https not knowing it'll be encrypted (I'm guessing), then it's plain text until the second search, right?
Or is the server first contacted, and the encrypted connection established, and then the first GET gets sent?
kbrosnan
if your really currious, dig out wireshark and record the transactions
paxcoder
good idea. funny how i didn't think of that.
sry then :-P

Is there anyway to allow cross-site script by modifying security config?

hi. I am looking for an extension that lets me filter out certain areas of a website I am visiting regularly. I wonder if "stylish" is something like that. Does anybody use it for that or is there a better solution?
What I would need is a way to filter out certain areas based on keywords I want to look for.
perlmonkey2
Using 3.6.3 on Ubuntu. I've got my startup screen to show the tabs I had open when I last used FF. But I usually shut down the machine with FF open, so the startup is a prompt to open up my new tabs. Is there a way to skip this prompt and just have it open the old tabs?

Hi I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I'd like to try Firefox 4, do I have to sign anywhere?
rjohnson19
lastent: Firefox 4 isn't out yet, there is an alpha 6 (moz developer preview). What do you mean "have to sign anywhere" ?
Actually Alpha 5 (which is not actually released yet)
lastent
rjohnson19, I mean register somewhere so I can try it
rjohnson19
Uh, no registration is required to get any Fx version, maybe you want to try a build from nightly.mozilla.org
lastent
ok thanks rjohnson19

hi, if you already have adblock and noscript, are there any addons for protection one should add?
rjohnson19
Protection from something in particular?

hello. is there a way to disable javascript, but at the same time also have it "fake enabled" --- so that the websites that you are visiting THINK that you have javascript enabled (to avoid error messages), but in fact you don't?

Hi all! I've got some weirdness going on. When I highlight and right click some text and do a Google search, sometimes I get the Google results, other times I get the www.google.ca/firefox page. What gives?
kbrosnan
try the basic troubleshooting steps, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Basic+troubleshooting
dsnyders
kbrosnan, I've done the restart thing (due to a power failure in the building last night :-)
kbrosnan
and Firefox's safe mode, Firefox's profile manager?
dsnyders
kbrosnan, The thing is, it is not consistent. I noticed it on some pages, and not on others, so I thought it might be website specific. However, when I tried it just a moment ago, the second attempt gave me the proper google results page.
kbrosnan
i've never seen that behavior
dsnyders
Which behaviour? The failing sometimes and working other times behaviour, or the failing behaviour itself?
kbrosnan
the failing behavior, and i use the hightlight text, right click search on google a lot
dsnyders
So do I. It's one of FFs best features (along with tabs).
I must admit that the behaviour is rare. When I first saw it, I thought that maybe there was an update that broke the feature. I went to google, and started searching for a solution. Nobody has one that I've found. However many people are seeing the same failure.
