MaxHR
Hello, can anyone suggest a setting or addon that will allow firefox to restore a previous session completely from cache, without trying to reload every tab like it usually does?
kbrosnan
MaxHR: firefox's cache is not big enough to do that, use a caching proxy if you want that behavior
MaxHR
kbrosnan: any suggestions for one? I can get this behavior to happen by turning on offline browsing mode before shutting down, but is a little of a hastle
kbrosnan
squid is probably the most well known one
         

MaxHR
ok, will look into it, thx
am on dialup, so any little tricks to speed things up help

What software can remove javascript either inline or linked? It could be as a processor of saved files, proxy, adjunct, or add on. Please don't answer 'sed' unless you can provide a sed script.

What exactly is different if Firefox is started with different profiles? What I mean is: Opened/Saved tabs? Installed extensions? Or what?
Cork
Mrokii__: all of it, history, tabs, bookmarks, cookies, passwords, m.m.
every thing you normally do is stored in the profile
except for plugins
auscompgeek
and global extensions/themes

okay.
thanks
What does "firefox %u" do? I have seen that is what Ubuntu does when Firefox is opened from the menu.
MapMan
hey
so I installed tab mix plus
and it sucked
so I removed it
but it fu*ked up my firefox settings
how do I restore them?
For example, I cant save any tabs, firefox just closes without asking me to save or not

JeroenDeDauw
JohnNew: Only 200mb? That's not even over 9000!
kbrosnan
JeroenDeDauw
kbrosnan: Awesome :d
kbrosnan
MapMan: either check about:config for any bold prefs (right click, reset) or delete the prefs.js file in your profile folder

the problem is fixed instantly when i restart firefox
larsie
is there anyway to reset password on Administrator account, seems that I've pounched wrong password twice.
RickyWh
is there a way for me to fix it?
maybe a clear ram button or something
larsie
u get 13% without using it?
it is in idle?
RickyWh
well, i'm not doing anything, but a few tabs open and it's sitting there
larsie
mine is going between 13-16% while doing youtube and four tabs only
using 140mbytes
RickyWh
wait, a flash application doing math operations endlessly was found :)
larsie
haha

RickyWh
it was a flash preloader

so, um, FF is crashing for one of my users whenever it tries to open dialog boxes. It dumps a core file which gdb only says "Program terminated with signal 4, Illegal instruction.". I've tried eliminating ~/.mozilla/, to no avail. How can I debug this?
on the same workstation, *I* can run FF with no problems. Could there be leftover temp files or something dbus related?
OS is FreeBSD, FF is 3.6.3.
uLinux
hello
How do I make Firefox save only 1 tab when I close it?
bahamas
hi. i'm trying to use the print function in the Firebug console, but i get a message that says that i need to install a printer. how can i fix this?
uLinux
(usually I open another empty tab and close it) :x
ghoti
uLinux: I don't understand what you're asking. If you close all the other tabs first, the 1 remaining tab should be what gets saved.
uLinux
If I have 1 tab open and close Firefox it won't save that tab.
only if it's 2 or mor
more
ghoti
ah. Go into Preferences > General. in Startup, change "When Firefox starts" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time".
For more advanced tab management, you might want to look in to the addons "Tab Mix Plus" and "Tree Style Tab".

I have a problem viewing PDFs in an iFrame. When the iFrame is closed, Firefox crashes.
I've disabled all addons and extensions (except the Acrobat plug-in)
Plug-in version is 8.1.3.187. I use Firefox 3.6.3; other computers with Firefox 3.5.x are working.
Is there any solution other than downgrading? Some third-party PDF plug-in perhaps?
Ah. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=531551
That looks like it. The Updates module in Add-ons told me there were no updates but it looks like 8.1.3.187 is not in fact the newest version.
kbrosnan
it is not
9.2 or .3
Mango
installing reader 9.3 right now.
I have the professional version but I'll just use the reader in the browser.
YAY! Sorted :)
