I was thinking of writing a Thunderbird extension/add-on, but problem is, it would rely on an app installed on the system.
Is this permitted in Mozilla's extension/add-on framework?
rjohnson19
Sure. Enigmail requires GnuPG, for an example. You can ask more knowledgable people in #extdev on moznet though.
rouslan
Thanks!

youtube keeps making Firefox hang :|
Cork[home]
uh.. and? versions of firefox, versions of flash, what you have tested?
(Action) goes back to reading
LaraNYC
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6 GTB7.1 , Flash Version: 10.1.53.64 , I had to force quit and it sent a hang report to Apple again
         

rjohnson19
After 45 seconds I think it is now, Firefox should kill the flash plugin and send the hang report to Mozilla.
LaraNYC
it happens often when I click the links on the right on video pages to go to other videos
rjohnson19: I think it was longer than that, is this in 4.0 beta?
rjohnson19
No, should be the same in 3.6.6. This might not be a plugin hang, but it does sound like it...
Oh, wait, OSX doesn't have OOPP in 3.6 nvm :(

[3.5] I've just accidentally clicked "new session" on the session restore prompt. Is there a way to restore the tabs? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Session_Restore says there is a sessionrestore.bak (which is what I am used to, too) but there is none (there is no .js either)

Hello
I would like to completly hide the address bar in fullscreen mode, ie I like firefox to not show it when the mouse reach the top of the screen. Is there some about:config trick to do so ?
The extention full fullscreen do the job
OldMonk

ATuin
hi all
PirosB3
hi all, is it possible, with a plugin or debug, to find out all the connections outgoing from a flash app (ex youtube) ? thanks
Tass_
is there a [ ] disable <blink> tag?
damd
yes, <noblink>
Tass_
damd, ...
damd
trolololololoooool
         

Cork[home]
Tass_: browser.blink_allowed = false
if you want a checkbox, you would have to write an extension
(not that i see why one would be needed)
PirosB3
anyone?
Cork[home]
anyone what?
if you want help ask your question
wearn't psychics
PirosB3
hi all, is it possible, with a plugin or debug, to find out all the connections outgoing from a flash app (ex youtube) ? thanks
Cork[home]
PirosB3: not through firefox, but you can with ex a proxy
PirosB3
for example?
Cork[home]
PirosB3: just google video stream capture proxy

hi, is there a web developer plugin for firefox that allows you to clear the 301 redirect cache without blowing away the rest of the cache?
or should I just use --profilemanager?
that latter options seems a little awkward sauce
Cork[home]
https://addons.mozilla.org/sv-SE/firefox/addon/8956/
foomanly
Cork[home]: DNS is a lot different than HTTP redirects
Cork[home]: but that's useful too, for testing DNS stuff that I'm also doing, but not what I need right now ;)
perhaps there's a "javascript: ..." url for this?
I really don't know how much Firefox internals "javascript: foo" urls have access to
Cork[home]
foomanly: the redirect is stored in the dns cache, at least to my knowlage
foomanly
Cork[home]: that doesn't make sense, because 301 redirects work within the same domain
Cork[home]
i know what it is
foomanly
know what what is?
ah screwit, I just blew away my entire history. That's the second time I've had to do that recently. I should set up a developer profile
oh cool, you can do 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, or a whole day. I didn't know that.
didn't have to blow away everything
anybody else develop with werkzeug? It ROCKS being able to throw a 1/0 and introspect your environment with a live Python shell through the browser :)
OldMonk
any way to reduce the size of the search box? it's taking up the whole width of the tab
kbrosnan
OldMonk: should be able to place your mouse between the address and search bar
to resize that bar
OldMonk
kbrosnan: i've moved the search bar down to the tab with bookmarks
can't resize by dragging -- it doesn't drag at all
kbrosnan
that only works when it is in the same place as the address bar
i think you will need to use a userChrome.css and the width property on the search bar id
OldMonk
hmm, any docs on how to use a userChrome.css?
kbrosnan
sounds like you just need something basic so any normal css guide
or http://userstyles.org
might have something
OldMonk
i mean, what the property would be, and where do i find/install this file?
ariqs
what the heck, I have all the auto update options turned off. I start up firefox, and I get my connection flooded with sh*t being downloaded
kbrosnan
rss feeds?
restoring tabs/
could be updating the private browsing db
ariqs
I don't know what it is, but it's still going
67701340.69564067.150.143.20294.23.197.115TCP34063 > http [ACK] Seq=252 Ack=119379 Win=69504 Len=0 TSV=498334 TSER=2453995369 <-- connection is too flooded with that nonsense to figure out what ip that is. At any rate, it all started when I opened the browser
kbrosnan
might be releated to an extension called download them all
bbbbbbbbaaaaa

tab mix plus's session manager does not save the last crashed session. if you crash, then can't read the session name (because the font is too large for the menu) then select no session -- the crashed session disappears. there is no way to get it back.
you only get one chance to restore the crashed session. :(
is there any ohter session manager that does not destroy information like that?
i thought the purpose of a session manager was to preserve information
kbrosnan
it should be saved in sessionstore.bak till you restart
rryouumaa
why can't it be saved with the other sessions so that you do not lose it when you try to fix it and restart?
why special-case a crashed session and be so eager to get rid of it? the font problem is bad enough -- you simply cannot find out what the session is -- but to throw away the session?
kbrosnan
rryouumaa: ask the developer of tab mix plus? the have some forums that any search engine should be able to point you to.
rryouumaa
kancerman: thanks. did so.

hello, my ff 3.5.10 under fedora 12 is not running java applets within a dvd based java course
how can I find out what's not working?
kbrosnan
does java in general work?
ch077179
yes
or how would you test it?
kbrosnan
running stuff without a webserver often results in issues
ch077179
but it used to work earlier
I mean the applets

hi when i (firefox 3.6.6, konqueror 4.4.5, gentoo linux 64bit) open http://www.gokbayrock.com my ram is used by 100%. with opera 10.60 the ram usage is normal. can someone confirm this behaviour?
kbrosnan
hm crashes the trunk on Windows, looking ino it
rjohnson19
I see the trunk crash, and on 3.6.6 memory spikes to ~1.7Gb, I wonder what on earth is on that site?
kbrosnan
mrueg
i opened the site with links2
it seems that there is a mistake in the php code which has two warnings combined in an endless loop
kbrosnan
how big is the page, i've hit 25mb
mrueg
when you open it with opera its rather small
kbrosnan
well that was using wget
as in the server sent me 32 mb of data before i killed the page
mrueg
http://pastebin.com/nbZqvtmB that's the endless loop what i get
ZiNC
Hey.
ch077179
