Hello
Can someone tell me what important data that's being stored under .mozilla/firefox/*.default/Files/* --- I'm looking at XPC.mfasl and extensions.rdf? Which 60 Mb in total? Are they important? Can't they be cleared?
Snares
evil-genius_: Guess you could just move them and find out :P
evil-genius_
Ah, why bother.... I just leave them alone :\

One of my addons (speed dial) has lost all its settings after firefox upgraded to 3.6.6 (linux). To be able to export them, do I need to downgrade firefox or will I be able to get at them another way? I'm not sure where they are stored.. probably in sqlite.
MaxHR
Hello, any suggestions for addons/skins to make firefox look and act like IE? I am trying to get my 80yo grandfather to switch, and he needs things to be comfortable, couldnt adapt to the firefox interface
kbrosnan
MaxHR: there are a number of themes that will get you most of the way there. depending on the version of ie you want to emulate
MaxHR
kbrosnan: thx, am looking to emulate ie7 on winxp, under firefox 3.6.6 , especially the behavior of the Favorites popover

corrideat
hello.
         

MaxHR
yeah, I already googled, I was looking for a recommendation from someone that uses the addon/s
corrideat
Do you know whether it is possible to change reported screen dimensions from an extension.
(e.g., screen.width value)
MaxHR
kbrosnan: the main thing that would be great is simply having the bookmark popup button be similar to IE8

Hey #firefox, I'm having trouble with the :first-letter selector.
Look at the following in both Firefox and WebKit: http://nomulous.com/
The W is too high --- but if I enclose it in a span and do it that way, it works just fine. What gives?

I have Ubuntu 9.10 and when Firefox starts, it loads, but the window disappears.
Anyone?

Can anyone recommend a synchronisation solution for smartphone/mozilla/ubuntu/windows that does not involve google - maybe it could be installed as a PHP application on my site ?
I found this - http://multisync.sourceforge.net/news.php - but it does not support Nokia. Are there any Nokia solutions out there ?

hi, I am using Ubuntu with Gnome, and a few days ago (can't pinpoint exactly when), the Close, Minimize and Maximize buttons vanished from the upper right hand corner of firefox and the Window Properties control vanished from the upper left hand side.
I want those back.

hello
in the thunderbird
each time i turn it on, i get "whats new in Thunderbird" tab, it's really annoying, i dont care whats new, i already know whats new, how to turn this damn tab off ?!?
thanks upfront
rryouumaa
i'm curious why firefox uses 45% of cpu time on my 1ghz mac even when javascript is turned off. my extensions are tmp, abp, noscript (with pretty severe settings).
kbrosnan
dagni: #thunderbird can be found on irc.mozilla.org , they do addtional support at http://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging
rryouumaa: any plugins running?
rryouumaa
kbrosnan: i never added any
plugins says realplayer quicktime flash default
noscript is pretty much stalinist so i don't know if any are running
s/stalinist/severe/
is there a way to tell?
         

Hanmac
if i found a bug in a firefox nightly, were is the best point i should report this?
kbrosnan
disable the plugin check cpu usage
rryouumaa
(Action) longs for a top(1) for firefox add-ons
kbrosnan
Hanmac: mention it here for starters
rryouumaa
kbrosnan: ok, i'll see. if i do find that it's still bad, are there good solutions?
kbrosnan
restart firefox i suspect
rryouumaa
kbrosnan: i'm talking about a situation when i just loaded firefox
it starts off using up cpu :/
Hanmac
in firefox-4.0 from http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ the bug is: /usr/bin/firefox-4.0: 174: Syntax error: end of file unexpected (expecting "fi")
rryouumaa
kbrosnan: it has settled to 20-30% cpu now. and disabling all 4 plugins makes no real difference. js is turned off.
kbrosnan
Hanmac: report to launchpad if you need help filing the bug #ubuntu-mozillateam would be best

I am trying out the beta on a win 7 machine and I am noticing that when I hover over the taskbar icon of firefox I get previews of all the tabs instead of previews of the windows top tags. Is there any way to effect this behavior or is this fixed?
issackelly
I'm doing an ajax request for a file with application/json MIME, and firefox is presenting a download dialog. how can I avoid this?

hi#
there is a backdoor in https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/176005/ leaking login data to a 3rd party url
i am too stupid to google for some firefox addon security contact
ok, not too stupid to google, just not able to find one
since this addon is listed in the owasp security collection, it would probably be a good idea to disable it.
see tamperPost.js for the leakage code
since it's an addon, the people at security@mozilla.org are probably not interested

Hi, is there a way to disable downloading to .part-files?
ShawnRisk
I am trying to find an update to the plugin "Web Developer" for Firefox 4.0b1. Anyone know where this is?
rryouumaa
johann__: that url did not lead me to an extension. did you name the extension?

PiousMinion
How/where does firefox look to determine the user's preferred gtk theme?
kbrosnan
wherever gtk 2.x stores it
PiousMinion
kbrosnan: there are many places. I need to know which of those places firefox is set to look.

Hey irc://irc.freenode.net/#firefox, I'm having trouble with the :first-letter selector.

`d1zzy`
Does anyone else notice or is it just me with the new FF, hash tags don't work anymore #gohere
My browsers goes to the take for a split second then shoot back to the top.
tag*
nomulous
member:`d1zzy`: Try in #firefox on irc.mozilla.org
`d1zzy`
kk
Cork[home]
`d1zzy`: tried in safe mode?
`d1zzy`
No, not sure how
Cork[home]
cause it works just find in a default installation at least
`d1zzy`
Well i just installed it
Cork[home]
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode
`d1zzy`
I hate FF2 before and it was fine
It might be something with firebug though
Cork[home]
`d1zzy`: well you might have some extensions from ff2 still in your profile
`d1zzy`
had*
Yeah
safe mod does it too
mode
and i disabled everything
Cork[home]
you have an example link?
`d1zzy`
http://www.alovefordesign.com/css/create-an-apple-style-menu-purely-in-css3-no-images-required/#comments
works fine in chrome
Cork[home]
`d1zzy`: its a javascript on that page
if i disable javascript it works just fine, but it jumps up to the top if i turn it on
`d1zzy`
is this just for my site or others with hash tags
Cork[home]
`d1zzy`: first its calls anchors
and no its a spesific javascript served from that site, that moves the page back to the top of the page
thats why you get the jump
`d1zzy`
dayum
i wonder where thats coming from
Cork[home]
(Action) has a quick look at the source
`d1zzy`
ty for help so far tho
I have feeling it might be scrollTo
messing things up
Cork[home]
if its your site, your loading jquery multible times...
`d1zzy`
by god i am
Cork[home]
ontop of that you should validate your page
it has quite alot of errors
`d1zzy`
k
ty
Cork[home]
np
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alovefordesign.com%2Fcss%2Fcreate-an-apple-style-menu-purely-in-css3-no-images-required%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0
`d1zzy`
oh
a lot of those i think are because of example code
Cork[home]
alot of those is cause your using html, inside an xhtml doctype
`d1zzy`
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.alovefordesign.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.1
It's because of the html i have to show as example on my site, it thinks im doubling id's n stuff
Cork[home]
`d1zzy`: well you don't HAVE to use html for the live example
xhtml works fine, and is what you should use when your in that doctype
(its the image link for http://www.alovefordesign.com/demos/apple-menu/ss.jpg)
so its not from your code links
<img src=""> isn't valid in xhtml
so i would say all those errors look valid to me
your using id as a class, and thats not valid eather
enherit
is there away to refresh the page programmatically? so after I edit a css file, it can trigger a refresh?
RandomTime
enherit: there's an extention called "reload every" that'll set it to reload after a set period of time
Not sure if you can set it to reload after you've edited something
enherit
RandomTime: there's a LiveReload extension for Safari, and Chrome.
RandomTime
enherit: and you want something like it for FF

I just lost all of my profile info from upgrading 3.6.6 to 4 beta
1st time I launched 4b, it correctly used my old profile so my bookmarks and options were "migrated" over to 4b.
second time I launched 4b, I get a vanilla profile (default options, no addons, no bookmarks, etc. )
anyone else hav this problem?
