Hi, I'm looking for a script to convert signons.sqlite into signons3.txt so that other browsers can read from it and import them.

hi does somebody have the same problem with .Webm files and win XP that when drag and drop them into firefox webm preview you can see some frames playing and then the page gets white as if the player just has disappeared ?
so playbacking like this file:///C:/x264/esc-vp8.webm
doesn't really work
not stable
http://www.supergenije.com/cruncher/
that way it does :(
kbrosnan
Cru_N_cher: you'll need a local webserver on windows to get the right mime type
Cru_N_cher
kbrosnan the problem was another one :)
must have been a extension
created a new clean profile and it worked also with local Webm playback
without disappearing player :)
i might have to find this extension when Webm support gets into Minefield :)

hey, I got a great idea for browser adoptions. Is it possible to point users to a copy of firefox that when downloaded opens with the page they were just browsing.
I want to stop all IE users visiting my website and point them to firefox. Then when they download it they just continue from where they left off
terinjokes
i've got a question about mozilla property lists
Cork
joshdavey: that would need your to brand firefox
         

terinjokes
can the property lists contain c-escapes
Cork
you mean like \n and the like?
terinjokes
i was wondering specifically \'
Cork
don't think so
you would prob have to use html entety
terinjokes
how's that?
Cork
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_entities.asp
but i'm not sure about this
terinjokes: correction, https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL_Tutorial/Property_Files
last block
\uXXXX
terinjokes
for an apostrophe?
Cork
but why would you need it for ' ?
strings should be capt in dubble quotes
gah... i'm totally messed up to day...
terinjokes: let backup, why would you need to escape ' ?
terinjokes
i'm not sure I even have too
Cork
(i was thinking of the dtd...)
property files are formated as ini files key=value
so theres nothing to escape
terinjokes
mkay
Cork
my_key=this isn't something you need to escape "thats for sure"
its a really barbone syntax
terinjokes
the string had something strange for the apostrophe, and it was throwing off gettext
Cork
let me grab a live example

ljsdofuynsdfufuh
what does it mean that sometimes css stops working?
I usually have to clear the cache and restart
I don't understand what causes this
but it seems to be using firefox with lots of tabs for days and possibly running out of hard drive space for a bit (but continues even after firefox restartsS)

i have opensuse 11.2 with wine... i want to click a playlist and then open spotify and play that list
Firefox no sabe cómo abrir esta dirección, porque el protocolo (spotify) no está asociado con ningún programa.
Firefox dont know how to open that adress, because the protocol ( spotify) is not asociated with any program.
but i have gone to about:config
network.protocol-handler.app.spotify env WINEPREFIX="/Windows98/.wine" wine "C:\Archivos de programa\Spotify\spotify.exe"
and network.protocol-handler.external.spotify;true
which it should work... seems a bug of firefox.. or im missing soemthing ??
any help would be apreciated..
any ideas ??
drellok

firefox feels sluggish after the most recent kernel updates to Karmic
frequently it seems to decide to peg one CPU core for bursts that are fairly predictable in duration
dbbddbdb
Hi, is it possible to make the upload box in forms editable?
hdon
i will restart it and see if that helps
dbbddbdb
Can't see anything relevant in about:config
hdon
dbbddbdb, i think there is an add-on for it
dbbddbdb
Because the reason why it was made like that in FF3 is completely ridiculous.
hdon
dbbddbdb, because successful open source softwares are those that cater to MS Windows and Apple Mac OS users :(
dbbddbdb
hdon: but I don't see how being successful implies treating users like clinical idiots
hdon
dbbddbdb, too bad
dbbddbdb
hdon: do you remember the name of the addon?
(Action) can't find anything for file field or filefield
hdon
dbbddbdb, no sorry :( maybe i imagined it
dbbddbdb
Thanks anyway!

hi
kbrosnan
hello
stodorovic
Could anyone please comment whether this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1453255) is a firefox issue since ~3.6.3 ?
It's probably only necessary to read the first post to get the general idea of what's wrong.
kbrosnan
mozilla would not have shipped firefox 3.6.3 if everyone could not access gmail or yahoo mail
stodorovic
hi kbrosnan. I still didn't get a chance to start looking into firefox development... will do that sometime :/
kbrosnan: exactly what I was thinking
I am a little suspcicioud of proxy settings in either firefox or ubuntu
*suspicious
kbrosnan
have they tried sudo apt-get purge firefox xulrunner, backing up their home folder would be recommended
before running that command
stodorovic
i dont think they have
kbrosnan
a proxy would kill everything
stodorovic
true
but i wonder if gmail is not proxied, and redirects to mail.googlemail.com which is proxied
i'm not seeing anything useful in bugzilla
just got a sms from client that is having trouble with this in australia
it's version 3.5.9 Canonical 1.0
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1110923&highlight=firefox+facebook seems to think it's a firefox bug
kbrosnan
if firefox's and seamonkey's gecko versions match then that sort of low level behavior should not change
stodorovic
i've just instructed my boss to send a sms back to the client to ask them if they could try seamonkey, and also try firefox with https://
feckser
why does https://help.ubuntu.com/search.html give a security warning?
kbrosnan
they have insecure content on the page
feckser
What is missing so that 'This web site does not supply ownership information' is not so?
kbrosnan
when the page has mixed content you get the insecure version of the security ui http://example.com/
feckser
kbrosnan: You answered my first question, thank you. I do not understand how the mixed content relates to my second question.
kbrosnan
they are related. you won't get the ssl information as Firefox considers the page insecure
http://help.ubuntu.com/libs/img/help-about.png seems to be one of the issues
http://www.google.com/afsonline/show_afs_search.js as well
might be other things, but any content loaded from http in an https page will poison the page

How do I turn off all single-key-bindings in thunderbird? I find myself trying to type cmd-line commands when that window is active all the time, and I don't like the way it just accepts the alpha-numeric keystrokes without modifiers and processes them.
kbrosnan
#thunderbird is on irc.mozilla.org or http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging
cognitiaclaeves
Yeah. I should have read the topic. Thanks!

hello firefoxies
I wanna know the soure code

Is Ubiquity being worked on, or it's dead?
MotherMGA
Hi, is there a firefox development channel, or an appropriate place where I can get technical help?
kbrosnan
fengshaun: not being worked on
MotherMGA: what sort of development? extensions?
fengshaun
kbrosnan: do you know of any other similar alive project?
MotherMGA
kbrosnan is a behavior question about the automatic resumption of downloads and how it responds to "HTTP 416 Out of Range"
possibly a bug with firefox, I'm not sure.
kbrosnan
see pm
Pachacutec: know what about it.
fengshaun: never really followed the project. #labs on irc.mozilla.org might be able to tell you something more useful
Pachacutec
what's ubiquity
kbrosnan
fengshaun: https://bitbucket.org/satyr/ubiquity/downloads might have something that works on 3.6
Pachacutec: https://mozillalabs.com/ubiquity/
Pachacutec
https?
why encrypted
kbrosnan
extensions are served off the page
fengshaun
kbrosnan: thanks, it's a shame such a great extension was put to sleep. I was just reading the docs for it to write a plugin :(

Hello all!
I'm trying to run local files (.htm) which were on Microsoft Windowr®, but when I try to click on a link, the page is not found...
It works on windows; I'm on Linux (I'm french, sorry for my bad english :/)
I didn't if I had to post this problem on #windows, #linux or #firefox
Pachacutec
polochon
ur linux needs a web browser
Polochon_street
...Which is firefox
(I'm actually running on fedora)
For example, there is a folder image in the same folder of the *.htm
The link is images/Rod.jpg
...But the picture is not print
:-(
Pachacutec
.,.,.,.,
check
the source code
to see if the image is linked
maybe it has path for windows
u know /documents and settings/
Polochon_street
No, the link is <IMG SRC="images/Rod.jpg"
Pachacutec
cool
try another browser
opera
is the best brwoser
Polochon_street
...
I'm on #firefox, isn't it?
Pachacutec
true
Polochon_street
And the operation works on windows 7
So...
With firefox
Pachacutec
I had a similar problem for IE but like 8 years ago
images woudn't load maybe u have a no images setting
Polochon_street
I'm installing midori
Midori doesn't work too
Here is the source code
http://pastebin.com/emV6EN7x
Any ideas?
Pachacutec
maybe the styles
are not loading... does ../ work in linux too
Polochon_street
Yes
And I got the folder before
Pachacutec
try in another linux
live cd
Polochon_street
Okay, I'm going to try this
!
It seems that firefox uses "quirks" to display this page
Does it means something to you?
Pachacutec
what's dat
Polochon_street
I don't know
Pachacutec
dude
see if the image loads in the browser alone
Polochon_street
It foes
Does*
Got it!
It's a "case" problem
Rod is like this on the source code
Buf in the folder, it's "rod.jpg"
How can I do know?
Can I ignore case
