http://getsatisfaction.com/foxmarks/topics/firefox_3_6_4_wont_start
kbrosnan
fanno: start > all programs > mozilla firefox > mozilla firefox (safe mode) for starters. assuming windows
fanno
i tried that
it won't start
kbrosnan
use imacros?
fanno
installed but not use it much
if thats the cause how do i disable it ? when i cant start firefox
kbrosnan
fanno: open your profile folder, then the extension folder and delete the folder {81BF1D23-5F17-408D-AC6B-BD6DF7CAF670}
fanno: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles#How_to_find_your_profile
fanno
i dont have one with excact that make
ohh wait hm not windows profile i guess let me look at that link
still no folder with name like that or similar
kbrosnan
fanno: it is in a hidden folder by default, searching for it won't find it
         

fanno
i have turned on show hidden files
kbrosnan
fanno: start > run > %appdata%
fanno
what am i looking for ?
besides the mozilla folder ?
kbrosnan
fanno: open the mozilla, then firefox, then the profile folder, then extensions
fanno
ok there it is
thankyou
that seemed to do the trick
i assume what i delete was imacros?
kbrosnan
yeah you can reinstall the current version from the addons site if you need it
it removed the file with an issue
fanno
ok
_ke
kbrosnan, when i add gBrowser.addEventListener("load", myFunc, true), my myFunc method gets called at least 2 or more times. any idea why?
Simkin
hey guys
is there a way to get firefox to behave like it's fullscreen (with f11) where it hides the menus and borders etc. but not go full screen?
i don't want to cover my menus at the bottom of the screen.
_ke
does anyone know, which event i could use in a plugin, to call a function AFTER EACH page load, including tabs?
kbrosnan
_ke: if you need some help with that try #extdev on irc.mozilla.org
_ke
kbrosnan, ok, thanks!
kbrosnan
https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-extensions is good to
er too
Simkin: view > toolbars > uncheck the ones you don't want
might need an extension to hide the menu bar if you are on linux
Simkin
i am on linux
and not at all what i want kbrosnan
i want the menus when i move the mouse to the top
i tried to use kde's per window setting to limit the max size of ff
but going fs ignores that :(
roue
hola
anyone know where firefox stores window placement information? I run a linux desktop with a pager and occasionally firefox will place a window in an unreachable location. It'd be nice to have some file to adjust that would fix that. Any pointers? thanks.
kbrosnan
roue: localstore.rdf
in the profile ~/.mozilla/firefox/...
Simkin: firefox is unlikely to notice kde prefs unless they are part of the open desktop standard
Shariff
Hi there
I've tried to update firefox and when I close the app and restart it, the installation process starts. However it cannot finish. It suggests there might be another version (I think they mean instance) of firefox running, which there isn't. I cannot move beyond this point except when I cancel the update. IS there a way to install the update or is the only way to deinstall it entirely and download a new version?
adurity
I have a website that sends me pdfs as application/octet-stream. Is there any way to add a program to the "Send this item to" list in the "Open with..." dialog? Adobe Reader does not appear there.
Shariff
adurity: isn't that a part of the windows context menu, rather then ff?
adurity
Shariff: I'm not entirely sure, but it doesn't look like any windows menu i've every seen. Seems to be Firefox specific to me.
Shariff: I just pulled up a Windows "Open with..." dialog and it appears distinctly different.
         

rjohnson19
Shariff: you can try deleting the update xml files as described at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Software_Update#Software_Update_Failed._The_update_could_not_be_installed
Shariff
rjohnson19: Thanks!
rjohnson19
np
Shariff
rjohnson19: that solved my issue, thanks!
bye bye

Cork[home]

[reed]

differentnick
sponsored links
Cork[home]
heh looks like they modified the markup, i haven't seen one of those block for a long time
but ya, i see it on that page
differentnick
help me to fix it
im sitting with a lady's computer which is full of crap programs
Cork[home]
differentnick: you have to explisitly fix it your self
ad block plus element helper
select the block you want to hide for that page and hide it
differentnick
ok
but
i want to set up my co employees' pc
so that they don't click on adverts (ie facebook etc) don't know if it is possible
Cork[home]
differentnick: abp can do this, so the problem is with the subscription lists
make a request to one of them
or fix it localy your self
differentnick
I usually take the standard subscription
so it wouldn't be easy
Cork[home]
there is no "standard" subscription
differentnick
the default one
Cork[home]
there is no default...
thee is a list where the first one in the list gets the default radio alternative
but its not default or standard to use it
differentnick
._.
Cork[home]
default is no subscription at all

Why I can't see how big is the file before I click save to download it?
I'm using latest Firefox version on Windows XP
is there some setting that would allow me to preview the size of the file I'm going to download, before I actually start downloading?
Guest77318
firefox is a slow monster
discuss.
towardme
how do I prevent sites from detecting what extensions I have installed?
auscompgeek
they can't detect extensions
usuallly
towardme
well auscompgeek unfortunately some managed to find out I installed adblock plsu
plus
auscompgeek
yeah, that's a bug in ABP.
it actually needs to open something special
revealing all
towardme
and I don't like it
it reveals my habits
auscompgeek
it can only reveal *some* extensions

Anyone know why this happened?
ElfeJoyeux
Hello, I think I just found a bug in Firefox (3.6.4). Can I explain it here in order to be sure it's really a bug ?
kbrosnan
glen1: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Unable+to+install+add-ons#Invalid_file_hash_possible_download_corruption_261 enable third party cookies
ElfeJoyeux: sure
ElfeJoyeux
ok, so : I made a test page : https://ks1.nordwifi.com/test.html
It looks like this when you reload the page (ctrl-R) : http://ks1.nordwifi.com/right.png
it looks like this when you force reload the page : http://ks1.nordwifi.com/wrong.png
force reload = ctrl-shift-R
I get this strange problem on Firefox 3.6.4 on ubuntu and on mac OS. I also get this on camino 2.1 beta on mac OS. No problem with safari, chrome...
glen1
kbrosnan, thanks, but that isnt working
kbrosnan
yeah i see the same, though you need a big enough monitor, need about 900 vertical px
glen1: here is a direct link that does not use adobe's download manager http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe
glen1
wow very kind, thank you!
on youtube, and other flash video sites the volume bar doesnt work correctly for me
Would this be a flash problem too I guess
kbrosnan
glen1: should be, though i can link you a flash uninstaller. sometimes it clears up odd flash issues, http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html
ElfeJoyeux: looks bug worthy
Amitgdb
firefox runs very slow on my system...takes lot of cpu..any clue??
ElfeJoyeux
ok, so I create a new entry here ? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi
glen1
I love how the uninstaller goes the opposite way from 100% 0% compared to the usuall install 0%-100%

browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.memory.enable are set to "false" in my browser. I didnt' set them directly in about:config. Is there some option I might have set somewhere else that would cause these bools to get set to "false" ?
Hallo
Is anyone here familiar with the W3's new Cross Origin Request Sharing standard by chance? I am having issues with allowing my webfonts to be stored on a different domain or subdomain in Firefox bcause it now support CORS. I tried setting the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header but it does not help. I guess since Chrome/Webkit don't support it yet it is no issue for them.
swimrr
do firefox add-ons always show at the bottom right of the browser window?
hrm
nobarking
swimrr: depends on the addon
swimrr
