hello is atypical question, How isntall firefox 3.6 with tar.bz2
How install firefox 3.6 with tar.bz2
Tallken
wat ?
Snares
I honestly have to say I don't like the way Firefox uses the taskbar to display tabs.
I like clicking on the icon to minimize/maximize it. You can't do that now.
And I find that this feature is not really that useful. If I want to open a tab, I'll click it in Firefox :P
auscompgeek
hm? Tab previews on Windows 7 in the superbar?
You can always disable all Windows 7 features :P
Snares
I can't disable what Firefox forces upon me.
rjohnson19
Snares: you can disable this in about:config, browser.taskbar.previews.enable
Snares
I feel violated.
lol
rjohnson19: Aha, I'll check that, thanks.
rjohnson19: Sweet, it works :D

anyone know a better extension for syncing bookmarks between multiple computers than xMarks? i want to drop this because i was looking at wireshark for something else, and saw that even though i turned off all the 'search assistance' it still reports to xMarks every google search i make

is there a channel for firebug or firelite?

Does firefox store somewhere, the sites a user has visited? (even after firefox is deleted with saved settings etc) ?
Or, can this be retrieved after?
auscompgeek
_Dave123_: what do you mean?
ljungk
fyi, the problem i had earlier was solved by deleting secmod.db
dreamcat4
is there any way to enable firefox 3 extensions in firefox 4 beta1 ?
auscompgeek
Depends on which extension you want to enable.
if (extension == "Greasemonkey") return;
:P
dreamcat4
it seems you just need to install the
Add-on Compatibility Reporter
and then it lets you
omg firefox 4 is so fast
auscompgeek
dreamcat4: Greasemonkey causes real problems on 4.0.
dreamcat4
auscompgeek: oh okay then. i guess im lucky in that respect as dont really need it
(Action) just disabled greasemonkey
auscompgeek
yeah, if you try to use Greasemonkey on 4.0, you'll eventually crash Firefox/your computer

hi folks :)
I'd like to embed SpiderMonkey in one of my C apps, but since I'm a linux user and would like the app to be portable, I'm a bit affraid of the build processes on windows with mingw
is it possible to, say, just use the dll coming with firefox? How would I do that?
Industrial
I'm looking for a tool, preferrably a firefox addon that can do this:
I'm testing some website functionality as I'm building it and want to send GET/POST requests again and again.
Say my app breaks and/or due to some other thing I can't get back to the data i entered in my form
I have to insert it again or if I'm lucky f5
I want to be able to edit the information passed manually and keep sending that self modified info as a request with the browser
I dont mean just an auto form filler :P

Is this an appropriate channel for an extension development question?
I am having trouble understanding usage of XPCNativeWrapper. I control both the page and the extension. The page has foo.bar.eventListener. I want my extension to execute: foo.bar.eventListener.dispatchEvent("hey buddy"). Any help with that? Thanks.

Hi guys, I was talking to this guy about how floss is great and all and that people worked for passion in their projects and I talked about firefox, to which this guy answered "then why does firefox have google as its search engine" implying that firefox was primarilly made for monetary reasons. Does anyone know how to rebutte him? (p.s.-I'm not a troll)
user_
dasen, it is true, as I understand, the mozilla foundation lives off of donations but it also uses the revenue from the default search engine, its a free country!
erp,. free world, so the answer is, yes, duhh!! lol
blenderer
where would I see what features have made it into the nightlies?
for 4.0b2 of firefox
user_
In 2006 the Mozilla Foundation received $66.8 million in revenues, of which $61.5 million is attributed to "search royalties".
blenderer
is it a matter of following the mailing lists?
user_
dasen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Corporation has the hole enchilada
blenderer
i guess my real question is: do the firefox nightlies have any big new features in it yet? when compared to the last beta

browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled is set to false .. yet it autocompletes and redirects me to "what it thinks is correct" instead of just telling me that the domain doesnt exist
