I assume your webpage referes to external stylesheet files, and those don't load in one of the reqests?
mohadib_
they css always loads
kunwon1
probably a relative/absolute path issue
mohadib_
everything loads fine
i have no hardcoded paths
bobo123
mohadib_: a way to be 100% sure that your webserver delivers the exact same files regardles of 192.... or localhost is by requesting all files with telnet instead I guess (using full http1.1 of course)
the nglayout.enable_drag_images setting was perfect btw mordoca, now it is as I liked it :-)

hello Ragenix
how can i improve your firefox experience today
Ragenix
Stop Firefox's memory utilisation hitting 1.5gb when I'm surfing black midget porn.
200 tabs of black midget porn shouldn't take up 1.5gb.
sdwilsh
decoded images take lots of space
Ragenix
Midget porn is smaller, after all.
         

sdwilsh
need to decode them to render them on the screen
Ragenix
Nah, it's Flash.
sdwilsh
oh, well, 3.6.4 will help with that
Ragenix
Loading up a ton of YouTube or *tube videos kills FF.
sdwilsh
flash will be in its own process
Ragenix
Kills as in, swells memory utilisation to ridiculous levels.
I look forward to it, sdwilsh.
But what I want from Firefox are official Group Policy templates.
So I can actually deploy Firefox across my org.
kunwon1, develop a Firefox Group Policy administrative template for me.
kunwon1
right away.
Ragenix
Considering people use IE in corp by default, FF needs to do more than IE - not less.
We go as far as to ban Firefox in most areas.
Because people can set some proxy server to bypass our own proxy.

My "H" and "C" keys. (Lowercase only) aren't working on firefox (and only firefox). Is this just me, or is this some kind of freeky problem that there's a fix for.

how can I make firefox ignore a non-closed meta tag?
it's preventing me from viewing a site (not my site)
XML Parsing Error: mismatched tag. Expected: </meta>.
i looked at the source and they have indeed forgottent to close 1 of their 6 meta tags
kunwon1
DarwinSurvivor, you'd probably have to make firefox think it's text/html
DarwinSurvivor
i tried modifying it in firebug, but firebug only shows the error message's html (not very helpful)
kunwon1
maybe with greasemonkey
when you view source you don't get the raw xml?
DarwinSurvivor
i do
kunwon1
ah okay
greasemonkey might be able to do that, but i wouldn't have the first idea how to go about it
DarwinSurvivor
the only way i could view the site was to download it, save it and add "
oh well, after doing my edit thing, the site didn't have what i was looking for anyways
i just figured firefox should have a "disregard the xml error and show the site anyways" button...
an normal user would no CLUE what that error meant

Does firefox use the system time to seed Math.random?

Hi, is there any way I can make firefox use another directory than /usr/lib/mozilla to access the libflashplayer plugin?

does anyone know how to sort the top-level bookmarks folder by name?

Hi
If I set firefox font size to 12pt, it is too small to be 12pt.
If I set font size to 12pt in other applications, letters are big enough to read.
Increasing DPI settings in KDE doesn't increase the font size of firefox.
How can I change the DPI of firefox?
Cork
it follows the system settings
but firefox have no support for kde
(by that i mean you need to config gnomes settings file)
crocket
I god
Slackware doesn't have GNOME.
Do I need to modify GTK+ settings?
kermit
is there any way i can merge this old history.dat (mork format i think?) with my current places.sqlite ?
a corrupted one, no less
anoob
morning, is there a way to change firefox configs with javascript?
kermit
anoob: i hope not
anoob
why kermit?
kermit
that would be insecure
anoob
are you talking about security?
:

ok
i figured it...
thank you kermit
Mentifisto
whose idea was it to make ff create a folder ingeniously named 'downloads', then? :|
kermit
Mentifisto: mine just puts downloads in my home directory
Mentifisto
yeah, it's very annoying... you delete it and it comes back.
just like WMP does
so Mozilla is turning more Microsoft-y :)

Is anyone aware of an avenue of complaint regarding addons.mozilla.org? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/downloads/file/49719/xpi/startupmaster-1.1-fx+tb.xpi
Service Unavailable. Does anyone know if this is a known issue or where it could be reported if not?

In general - If I want to force a browser to make an HTTP RANGE request, how can I do that? I tried returning a 204 and 205 page with no content and an Accept-Ranges header, and I also tried sending a 206 with partial content - only the latter seems to do anything. When I give a 416 (range not satisfiable) the browser gives up and does't try a ranged request. Is there a definitive way to force the client to use a range?

are there any plugins I can use to capture the post variables from a form?
