when i try to upload or download something to a location from firefox, it is very unresponsive when i try to choose something in the home directory. where could the problem be? (linux)
DeHackEd

so i was running tcpview on my compy, and i noticed a strange behaviour of FF. hoping someone can shed some light on this.
basically, there are a couple cyclical tcp connections that are always open.

hi, I have a question which may seem silly. Does anyone have a problem with FF and PHPbb3 loading the body of the ACP?

Hi all, I want my firefox (v3.0.15) to open some .txt or .java file in the browser to show their content rather than enforcing a popup menu to ask me download them.
How can I fulfill this?
Anyone?

I have the following structure in my HTML, which is valid HTMl5: <a><hgroup><h1/><h2/></hgroup></a>. I've set <hgroup/> and <a/> to display:block. Chrome and even IE does the right thing, but Firefox (tested 3.6.6 on WinXP) insists on mutilating the DOM and turning it into <a><hgroup/></a><h1><a/></h1><h2><a/></h2>. Is there a way to prevent this from happening or do I have to obey Firefox and not put blocks in anchors?
pluma
Let me rephrase that: Is there a way to stop Firefox from mutilating block element hierarchies contained in an anchor element?
Is anybody awake?

remoteCTRL1

pluma
Meh. Thanks for the attention.
remoteCTRL1

why when 'right click, then hit t-key' in firefox, it deletes my bookmark link?
uberpinguin
is there a way to automatically distribute a CA certificate to firefox clients in a Windows domain? I can distribute the cert through GPO, but since FF doesn't actually /use/ the system's certificate lists, that doesn't help me.
Olipro
is there a way to run Firefox 3.6.6 and Minefield (4.0b2) concurrently?
when I try to launch Minefield with Firefox 3.6.6 running, it just opens a new window of 3.6.6
rockbalboa
Olipro, http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1062975 or use firefox portable (best thing ever I love it)

is there a command-line or otherwise scriptable way to import CA certificates into a user's cert store?
py_19000101
hi there
bye
kbrosnan
uberpinguin: the firefox cck or possibly byob.mozilla.com
uberpinguin
hmm
kbrosnan: thanks, but those are both a lot more invasive than what's appropriate for this environment :/
dashs
This idiot made his menubar (not sure that's the right name) go away. Now I can't get it back.
uberpinguin
dashs: View - > Toolbars?
dashs
That bar is gone, how do i get it back?
uberpinguin
ah
is the bookmarks bar there?
or the urlbark
s/k//
dashs
that the one with most visited?
uberpinguin
that'll do
dashs
ok
uberpinguin
right-click it
\
it should give a list of toolbars there
or rather, right-click in an empty space, where there is not an actual bookmark or link
dashs
right click gets me a menu
for new bookmark separator, etc
uberpinguin
try in the space immediately below the address bar
dashs
address bar is gone
uberpinguin
mk
can you post a screenshot?
dashs
this is on a netbook
I guess i can erase the stuff in .mozilla

RLa
hey, what plugin would you recommend for seeing file upload progress
i have to upload files on crappy connection
kbrosnan
most sites use a Flash or Java based plugin, which extensions can't interact with easily
RLa
not mine, it's plain old multipart form
Magicblaze007
where does firefox cache its temporary files? How can I find this on a general system?
kbrosnan
depends on your operating system
Magicblaze007
on windows?
kbrosnan
RLa: ah, never looked my self. done any searches on addons.mozilla.org ?
Magicblaze007: %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles\$PROFILE_NAME\Cache
Magicblaze007
kbrosnan: profiles doesnt have a directory named $PROFILE_NAME on my machine, just a directory named d26vxqap.default.
ryden
Hi, where can I find a tutorial on how to develop plugins for Firefox? I want to make a C++ plugin to support fingerprint matching.
Kind of what GTalk does for the videochat.
(The GTalk integrated into gmail)
kbrosnan
Magicblaze007: $PROFILE_NAME is variable
jair
I am running firefox 3.5.7 compiled from source on my debian lenny 5.0.5 machine and each time I open google docs the system cpu spike to 100% and I can't move the mouse everything get slower have anybody experience something like this?
kbrosnan
ryden: flahs
er flash
Magicblaze007
kbrosnan: $PROFILE_NAME can't be right
whatever its value is unless its value is d26vxqap.default
which i know its not
jair
I will install the version 3.6.6 to see if this get fix but I wanted to check with people here
kbrosnan
it changes depending on the user Magicblaze007
ryden
kbrosnan and how does flash access stuff as the webcam? I want to make it directly as a plugin, even if it needs to be installed separately.
Let's say, that I want to make my own embedded flash player.
Can't I do it?
Magicblaze007
kbrosnan: at least on my win 7 box, that path isnt working
RLa
kbrosnan, i cannot use mozilla.org page
kbrosnan
Magicblaze007: $PROFILE_NAME needs to be determined by you, it is not stored, it is not a system wide variable
Magicblaze007
kbrosnan: thanks. it seems you are right
RLa
i can't access any https page because my isp only allows to use http
Magicblaze007
i was hoping profile_name was a system variable
RLa
unfortunately mozilla.org forces https
ryden
kbrosnan any hint?
kbrosnan
RLa: addons.mozilla.org delivers exectuables to Firefox, not doing that over https would be poor
RLa
hm
kbrosnan
ryden: you are developing a NPAPI plugin?
ryden
Let me google that keyword, it's probably what I'm looking for. Thank yu.
kbrosnan
ryden: explaining what you are trying to should help me make better suggestions
ryden
kbrosnan I want to make a fingerprint matching service, but the fingerprint must be sent to the web server (or at least the fingerprint processed data). In order to read the fingerprint, I need to access the fingerprint reading hardware. I don't think that I can access it through HTML.
Yes, NPAPI is what I need. Thank you!
kbrosnan
ryden: what you want to do should be possible via an extension, there are already some extensions that access fingerprint data
ryden
And how do you access the hardware from them? Does Firefox provide fingerprint functions?
kbrosnan
ryden: no, i suspect they contain binary parts that access whatever MS defined fingerprint functions
ryden
Well kbrosnan, I actually want to make this for Linux systems.
But what surprises me is that you can include binary parts in Mozilla extensions. That could be useful.
