hello. I have FF 3.6.6 on Ubuntu and when I click in the wrong way on a link to an mp3 file it starts playing in the background...
but I can't find how to shut it down :S
(not really sure if it is a firefox thing though..)
kbrosnan
tools >addons > plugins
one of the plugins is playing the mp3 file
effeietsanders
mediaplayerconnectivity perhaps?
or moonlight
?
because normally when that plugin is used, it starts displaying some external player
kbrosnan
former
effeietsanders
like VLC
but in the case of MP3 it doesn't
it just plays
(Action) tries changing the prefs

I have a weird issue I am running firefox 3.6.6 and some website's textboxes do not show the cursor or text being typed. I have tried this in Linux and windows. The website works in google-chrome and chromium. Does anyone know how I can fixe this or what config file needs to be changed? Thanks
It works fine on other websites and the users of the site's do not experience the same issue when running Firefox 3.6.6
btw I am running x86_64 if it matters
sounds like this issue http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/forum/1/571658

Does anyone know an easy way to clear the favicons from the bookmarks menu? I know there is an extention for the bookmarks manager if I can find it. On that note, can I set Firefox to *not* set favicons? I thought I read once private browsing would do it, but what about an about:config setting? I really just don't like favicons and they make my bookmarks busy. Titles are enough for me to know where I am going. Thanks.
Okay, found the extension. That part is cool. Now I'll test private browsing to see if it holds...
Yep, I can use the extension to delete from cache, and private browsing mode clears any new ones added upon closing FF.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.6 error: Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision

I'm having a little issue with Facebook here. It shows a white page with rudementary layout on it (like the 90's, like there is the background missing, components missing, everything mis-aligned). In Internet Explorer however, Facebook loads normally. I've tried deleting the Facebook cookies and restart it but no luck. Any ideas?

Hi guys. I have done the following to install sun-java plugin for my firefox in ubuntu linux: http://pastebin.com/pMdjBjng. The install completes with success but the plugin is not showing in about:plugins in firefox?
I am on a amd64 system, but it installs a i386 package: sun-java6-plugin_6.20dlj-1ubuntu3_i386.deb
auscompgeek
stix: did you install it with Firefox closed or have you restarted Firefox?
stix
I tried to restart it. I also tried to close ff and reinstall it
ziro`
memory fox plugin is pap
it's great for reducing the memory firefox uses.. but when it does it every 5 seconds, it bogs my system down..
even when i've disabled the bloody thing
auscompgeek
BarTab ftw
ziro`
i doubt i'd use bartab
oh ok, looks simple
auscompgeek
it can unload tabs after a certain period of time, saving memory ;)
(Action) doesn't like TooManyTabs for Firefox

Does anybody here have libflashplayer.so for amd64? Adobe removed the library and now I can't download it D:
kbrosnan
it has known security issues. really the two options are run 32 bit firefox or use nspluginwrapper to run the 32 bit binary in firefox
comawhite
is there a way to sync my bookmarks with google like I did in chromium?
auscompgeek
Firefox Sync allows you to sync your bookmarks with other Firefox installations. Not sure if there's an add-on that syncs with Chrome as well however.
comawhite
that's the only thing stopping me from wnting to move back to firefox =[
wanting*
auscompgeek
you can export them and import them into Firefox ;)
kbrosnan
realy if you need cross browser sync xmarks
comawhite
Xmarks 3.7.9 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 3.7a6pre.
=\
blah
auscompgeek
You're still using 3.7a6pre?
comawhite
only because my package manager hasn't updated it
doesn't work in the beta either
auscompgeek
you can always override compatibility using a pref
comawhite
how i do that
auscompgeek
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.7a = false
comawhite
thank you
auscompgeek
anytime
just be careful.
Especially with Greasemonkey.
comawhite
don't use it
auscompgeek
Good, otherwise you'd be like "WTF? Why are new tabs opening?"
comawhite
lol
doesn't work the check thing
kbrosnan
did you make it boolean?
comawhite
oops string
xD
now it won't lemme delete it
auscompgeek
reset it, close about:config, open it again
comawhite
I just trashed ~/.mozilla/ and redid it, now it works ^_^
thank you
auscompgeek
wow, that's harsh.
comawhite
?
kbrosnan
comawhite: just needs a browser restart for the pref to clear after a reset
comawhite
ah
well xmarks doesn't work, just keeps loading forever
techknowlust
is it possible to disable XSS checks in Firefox?
auscompgeek
It's best not to.
kbrosnan
fairly sure there is a pref
for dev work it can be needed
techknowlust
auscompgeek: it's a once off thing
kbrosnan: I presume this pref is in about:config somewhere
kbrosnan
i think it is hidden by default
auscompgeek
though yeah, there probably is an about:config pref
techknowlust
any idea what it'd be called ?
kbrosnan
maybe http://kb.mozillazine.org/Security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy
techknowlust
that's the one I think
awesome guys. I really appreciate it

hi...so i'm looking for a FF source tarball that has VP8 support...where would I find that?
kbrosnan
the last alpha or the upcoming beta
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/devpreview/1.9.3a5/source/
the beta should be out rsn
Karamorf
running into an odd issue with FF from the code base I'm working in ... apparently our code base looks for the content type to be 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' when its an ajax request and errors out in all other cases. Then FF sends the request like 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8' which errors out. Is their a way I can tell FF in the js not to send the charset bit of the request?
or is my only option to fix the server side code/
edman007
Karamorf, thank you
Karamorf
for?
xbskid
I think he meant kbrosnan.
Tab autocomplete. :)
edman007
Karamorf, for having a nick that looks a lot like kbrosnan's nick
xbskid
Score
Is there any auto-update feature/addon for the nightly builds?
edman007
kbrosnan, make[3]: *** No rule to make target `-lpthread', needed by `libmozjs.so'. Stop :(
kbrosnan
https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Developer_Guide/Build_Instructions/Linux_Prerequisites
edman007
kbrosnan, it should detect any pre-reqs at configure time...
Buck
can I ask questions regarding addon development here?
kbrosnan
you could but #extdev would be better if you are developing an extension. it is on irc.mozilla.org
Buck
great, thanks
