hi, if you already have adblock and noscript, are there any addons for protection one should add?
test34
with http://pandora.com, if I close the website, then clear all my browsing history, it still remember me when I go back, are they using the IP address?
auscompgeek
probably.
test34
could you think of any other way? (beside spyware)
auscompgeek
no, not really.
test34
thanks.. I think thats the first time I see this for a website where you login... doesnt seem very safe, even though this is just online radio
auscompgeek
It happens with our support site as well unfortunately :S
test34
it might be flash cookies let me try to clear those
that did it, visit http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html to delete flash cookies
BetterPrivacy 1.47.4 extension seem to take care of that flash problem
auscompgeek
ah, Flash cookies. annoying.
         

test34
yes I tend to forget about those
auscompgeek
That's why I use NoScript ;)
Masee
hi, is there another plugin like hammerhead for measuring the time it takes to fully load up a website?
auscompgeek
YSlow, or Google Page Speed.
Those require Firebug, just to warn you.
Masee
auscompgeek, thx!
auscompgeek
np
test34
I tried noscript but it blocks too many things and I get tired of dealing with it after a while
too many websites become unusable
auscompgeek
It's more designed for advanced users ;)
test34
I guess
I wish html5 will make flash disappear anyways
auscompgeek
YouTube supports HTML5.
test34
thats a good thing but many others need to follow;)

Guys, anyone know if I want to find plugin that does NOT collect any personal data, how should I proceed?
I discovered a lot of plugins track down what you surf and there is no way to filter such spyware out.
damn, segfault
anyone answered in the meanwhile? sorry
VectorX
hi, how do i change/edit a saves password ?
saved
or is this not possible
i got a form which keeps displaying the wrong password and doesnt offer to change
WXZ
is there anyway to change keyboard shortcuts, all the instructions I found were too cryptic for me to understand
qFox
is there any way to detect whether webgl is actually working? and i dont mean a random demo page, because with experimental standards, they might not be compatible. i want to be sure whether webgl is or is not working at all. i've tried the fx nightly, 1.7.soemthing. enabled it in config:about. but every demo seems to fail
and i'm not sure how i can verify whether its on my end or the demo's end
Guest71204
hey guys,, do you know how i can just run the nightly builds
apparently i forgot the little LD_LIBRARY_PATH thing, or maybe its my path
but either i start the old forefox by running the build or alternatively i get a SO load errer if i dont use LD_LIB path
VectorX
hi, how do i change/edit a saved password ?
grobda24
VectorX, enter the new password into website and FF should ask if you want to change it.
         

Guest71204
noone
this is so annoying
grobda24
I get a separate username/password dialog box on an SSL login but it will only let me use a single username/password - a second valid login is ignored. Why is this ?
testff
how do i run the nightly build, WO installing it,, on linux
when i use ./firefox og ./firefox-run i get my old ff
./run-firefox says : run-mozilla.sh: Cannot execute .
VectorX
grobda24 its doesnt ask, that is the problem
not that i dont get the drop down on occation but in this instance for some reason i never getting it
testff
seriously ...... noone
grobda24
VectorX, have you tried removing it from Security -> Saved passwords ?
testff
ffs
i did this a few weeks ago
i just forgot how to setup environment
VectorX
grobda24 ill try that
testff
okey,, this is officially the hardest thing ive evet seached fot ,, google is worthless
VectorX
ok now its not even adding it
its a gmail email address, it asks to add any other username apart from the one i need it to
is there some plugin that can be used to manage site credentials ?
derdon
hello
I have many rss feeds as bookmarks in my bookmarks bar. if I right-click on one of them, a context menu appears where I can select "reload dynamic bookmark". how can I reload *all* of these dynamic bookmarks?
miha
hello guys, i'm interested in saving a flash video, javascript is a bit too complicated to find url outright. is there a plugin that shows URL's ?
rumbert
what addon makes the Fields in a CGI get URL more independently editable?
testff
miha: i heard that the flv file should be placed in /tmp
otherwise there are many online flv rippers if you google for something like flv2video or flv2mp3
miha
testff: well youtube ripper for this page only saves flash video player
flash sniffer finds nothing
i'm sure javascript puts together some URL and feeds it to player
i guess i could go through wireshark logs :P
but it could be nice firefox extension to just log all URL's loaded from page? :D
like adblock stuff
mavhc
send everything via a cacheing proxy, job done
miha
hmmm good idea yes. squid? :D
meGenius
when we will see full html5 support in firefox??
testff
meGenius: when html5 is done ?
dont any of you guys use the daily builds
?????
miha
mavhc: so i would use something like http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/DynamicContent/YouTube cause i dont see it as default :D
meGenius
testff: i'm talking about the versions the users are going to use
end-users are not going to use mineField
Lantizia
Thunderbird... Columns (e.g. Date, Subject, From, Recipient)... is there a column that shows CC information?
I've searched high and low and never get an answer on #thunderbird on irc.mozilla.org
WXZ
how does one change the keyboard shortcuts for firefox 3.5, this should be relatively simple
kbrosnan
WXZ: not really, you can google keyconfig extension. though configuring it is fairly arcane
WXZ
it's outdated
kbrosnan
Lantizia: the right most button in the headers should be a small button that lists all the possible columns
Lantizia
kbrosnan, sure but not anything for CC
kbrosnan, and the recipient field only lists what is in To: not CC:
kbrosnan
well then it is not a default feature, you could check for an extension
Lantizia
it's utterly rubbish! Outlook can and I hate outlook!

does anyone know how to specify a proxy password for the settings in firefox?
miha
(Action) solved his video ripping problem... instead of flash i chose windows media player and followed <a rel="nofollow" href="http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/257045-How-to-record-streaming-WMV-ASF-MMS-links-using-VLC-Media-Player">http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/257045-How-to-record-streaming-WMV-ASF-MMS-links-using-VLC-Media-Player</a>
take care
molqr
hello ppl... is it possible to replace the menu bar items File, Edit etc.. with their single letter representations like F, E etc?
t0nic[w]
hide toolbar hotkey in mac?
meGenius
molqr: i think you can do so if you edit the source
molqr
meGenius, oh my god.. :( i was thinking more like editing the chromefiles or something like that
kbrosnan
hiding it completely is much easier than editing it
meGenius
molqr: in fact, i can't recommend any way, i don't know which is easier & more effective
molqr
meGenius, thanks anyways mate :)
meGenius
:)
you are welcome
luist
how can i download the file that is responsible for a realtime streaming? cache got a swf but it wont open just by itself... this is the code that embeds it in the website: http://pastie.org/1004033
Arzachel
hello
kbrosnan
hi
Arzachel
oh, life :) then i'll just ask..
i want to install the flash plugin in linux for only one profile, but couldn't really find an answer where i would have to copy it to
i stopped using flash in firefox some time ago, opera was used for that... but linux+opera+flash seem to be a weird combination :/
kbrosnan
not really possible, i guess you could do something with File permissions
though tools > addons > plugins allows for fairly simple enabling and disabling
Arzachel
nothing in about:config to dictate plugin dirs?
hm.. didn't think of that one this time *g*.. deactivating is really the same as nonexisting?
kbrosnan
yes
sideone
hey all
say i have 50 tabs open, when i close ff and want to reopen, what extension will allow me to open only 3 tabs instead of all 50?
lontra
hi how can i get firefox to unassociate a file type with a specific program? it always wants to associate all my downloaded files with okular
kbrosnan
lontra: delete mime-types.rdf from your profile folder
lontra
thanks
churl
is there a way to override firefox's ownership of F11?
kbrosnan
possibly with keyconfig though it might not be able to unset keystrokes
churl
kbrosnan: is that an addon?
cause is doesnt work for 3.6.3 :(
kbrosnan
guess the developer abandoned the extension
churl
im running ubuntu and just want to use the key for something else
it might not be a firefox issue
x_
hello everyone
I liked Chrome's process model, but I hate its privacy problems. When will Firefox implement that one process per tab thing?
kbrosnan
3.6.4 will implement out of process plugins
addtional work is being done to evaluate the cost/benefit of process per window/tab
x_
kbrosnan, It seems very interesting, but ok...
