Hi, fellows! After update the flash plugin to www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.1.53.64 the support to flash on firefox is broken on my Linux
However, such applications are working fine on Opera. I didn't find any bug report to firefox to this specific version of flash plugin. Anybody know, how could I fix this problem?
the current version of my firefox is 3.6.4

hi guys, just a quick question. do you know where I can find up to date info about electrolysis, particularly about UI/tab content separation?
WOFall
txithihausen, perhaps it's 32bit with no wrapper?

hi guys
on ff 3.6, how do i set the cache to like 10k?
or tell ff to clear the history, i don't see the bloody check box for that anywhere any longer
nm custom settings
argh
txithihausen
WOFall, it's is a 64 version. Although, before update, everything was working fine

I thought Adobe specifically dropped 64 bit Flash in 10.1.

I put a few rss feeds on my bookmarks toolbar in Firefox. Awesome feature, but when you click them and the headlines drop down, the drop down menu doesn't interpret (or ignore) the html code ffecting the font of the headline so i get headlines that look like "Vampires < & amp ; > Werewolves <FONTCOLOR=RED>. know of any plugins to fix this problem?
auscompgeek
c001: You could stop using Live Bookmarks.
c001
hmm
could you please leaborate? what should I use instead? Why should I stop using that?
elaborate sorry
         

auscompgeek
There are other RSS reader add-ons available for Firefox.
c001
thanks auscomp

firefox is pure evil for allowing ctrl+q to close the browser when you mean to use ctrl+w to just close a tab because the q and w are right next to eachother

how do I get at Firefox internals through JavaScript? Can this be done through Firebug for example?
AFAIU, a lot of the UI code is written in JavaScript, or at least has JS bindings. So I should be able to modify menus and stuff
siimo
yea easy to hide menus with CSS
Kjixill
i have the best firefox addon EVER
it make me drop opera which i have used for years.
quuxman
siimo: how do you do this? You can't do it with normal CSS, otherwise regular web pages could do it
I guess what I'm asking is what magic do you have to do to get full JavaScript privilege escalation
Kjixill: there are a lot of firefox addons that would and have made me drop Opera (after using for at least a year). Which one are you spaeking of?
siimo
quuxman: userChrome.css
quuxman: its in your profile/chrome folder and you do something like this: menu[label="History"] { display: none !important; } to hide the History menu from the menu bar for example
to figure out the widget you need to hide look at firefox ui in the DOM inspector
quuxman
siimo: is there a way to do that from JavaScript?
siimo
i dont know
quuxman
I think what I want is either the extension developer extension or the greasemonkey userscript compiler

Firefox 3.6.4 seems to be out to lunch on my system. (Gentoo)
There's no error output on the console, no browser window appears, and the command does not return.
s/console/xterm/
The same behavior occurs with -safe-mode.
I tried removing ~/.mozilla, in case it was a matter of corrupted configuration, but this didn't change anything.
Any ideas?

hey guys, is there a way to get multitab previews in Windows 7 superbar with Firefox yet?
found the feature in about:config but it's disabled by defaultc since it's incredibly buggy
luckz
(also why did the last two nightlies randomly delete half my extensions, now prevent some XPI install prompts to even appear, etc?)
kbrosnan
enable the menu bar and check view > toolbars > status bar
luckz
I toggled that several times
nothing happens
and yes, enabling the menu bar also got rid of the weird low-function Chrome Button(tm)
oh
if I open a new window, that one gets a status bar
how do I get it back in my old window tho?
kbrosnan
I have a menu bar on all my windows, check Firefox's safe mode
luckz
not menu, status
         

kbrosnan
and a new profile if needed
luckz
a simple restart got it back, ok.
now, back to my other question, any idea how/if I can talk minefield into installing http://lazarus.interclue.com/downloads/lazarus-beta.xpi ?
if I click the link on http://lazarus.interclue.com/download.html , nothing happens. if I use file -> install extension (added by https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/421/ ), nothing happens.
I can't seem to install https://adblockplus.org/devbuilds/adblockplus/adblockplus-1.3a.20100625.xpi , either
kbrosnan
works for me, have you checked tools > addons?
there is not any install notification currently
luckz
well, they're not set as compatible to the current version
and I always used said MR Tech Toolkit thing to override that, but that always opened an "are you sure you wanna" window
so I should probably disable that
also, why did half my extensions disappear from the addons list? is there any way to 'sanitize' this civilisedly?
mh, now I get about:addons as an extension manager instead of a dedicated window
but installing still does not work :P
kbrosnan
try opening your profile and moving extensions.ini and extensions.sqlite out of your profile?
luckz
http://pastebin.ca/1889765 <- my extensions.log, for the record
will do
no
that only re-enabled the extensions I had disabled
but it doesn't get me back my missing ones
installing still does not seem to work

FallenAngel1

FallenAngel1
xmm, ok
panzi
is it possible to open a (tcp or http) server socket using mozilla jetpack?
hanibanaa
is it possible to define a shortkey to focus cursor on google search textbox?! eg. by an addon...
panzi
hanibanaa: you could write a bookmarklet or a greasemonky script that does that
the later could be set up to be automatically run when you browse to google
kbrosnan
hanibanaa: ctrl + k
panzi
oh, you mean firefox search box
hanibanaa
panzi: ok tkanks for the clue.
kbrosnan
panzi: https://jetpack.mozillalabs.com/sdk/0.5/docs/#package/jetpack-core but i doubt what you need is in it
panzi
kbrosnan: yeah I looked at that already but the documentation seems incomplete. so I hoped there would be such a thing despite its not mentioned there
hanibanaa
kbrosnan: I don't mean firefox google "search bar"; I mean google search "textbox" which appears on the top/buttom of google result page.
kbrosnan
panzi: i doubt it, that is a fairly low level thing to be exposed at this point
panzi
kbrosnan: yeah but I'd like to stard some kind of server in firefox, using firefox to render and analyse html pages and send back the analysis results (the analysis needs the rendered visual representation)

hi @all. Are there possibilities to start and keep Firefox in a specific resolution e.g. 1106x1024?
kbrosnan
disable javascript
or the pref to rezise windows
then use the following command
er before disabling resizing run
javascript:resizeTo(1106,1024);
fasp
unfortunately i'm kind of dependent on javascript
due to media contents
can resizing be solely disabled or are there start parameters for firefox?
kbrosnan
just resizing can be turned off
options/preferences > javascript > advanced > move or resize windows
fasp
just solved it via a slightly different menu entry
thank you

Hi all, my thunderbird is keeping a lot of mailboxes, including the accounts I have already deleted.
I needed to transfer emails from one host to new host. I set up all mail accounts on my Thunderbird for both old and new hosts then drag and drop to transfer.
After the transfer completed I deleted all the accounts but the mailboxes seem to be still on my disk.
They are taking 6GB of spaces in the Thunderbird profile directory and Thunderbird takes very long time to startup every time (~5 minutes)
FishFace
Whoa
SeriousMatters
What can I do?
FishFace
Have you compacted the folders? Don't know if that will help. Might not take out the old accounts. Not sure. Never had to do that.
SeriousMatters
i have imap.mydomain.com-1, imap.mydomain.com-2, imap.mydomain.com-3 ... up to 21
1 for each mailbox of my colleagues, I assume. I don't know which one is which
FishFace
Not a Tbird expert by any means. But you could go to each account. Then Tools - Options - Account Settings - Disk Space. Fool around in there.
SeriousMatters
the accounts are already deleted.
FishFace
Oh yeah
Hmmm
SeriousMatters
but their mailboxes remain for some reason.
FishFace : i am trying something very brave.
FishFace
Good luck :)
SeriousMatters
I deleted (by rename) all the mailboxes and restart Tbird
FishFace
Good idea
SeriousMatters
It is now downloading all mails again.
FishFace
IMAP leaves the messages on the server I take it?
SeriousMatters
they are cached locally, I think
mikubuntu
