hi
i cannot directly install any new addon the normal way, I have to right click, download the xpi file and open it with firefox
why?
greydron
Can someone confirm this? Open up a few tabs. Right click on one and select "Bookmark all tabs" Is the folder name highlighted or not? It used to be highlighted in earlier version and now I have to take my mouse there to highlight it. I am on Windows 8.1/Firefox 41.0.1
Sure, it seems like a first world problem but I'd say it's more of a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
umpfag
why nobody ever helps in this channel?
b0at
umpfag: from addons.mozilla.org?
i don't know if it has some facility now with extension signing to make addons from elsewhere harder to install, but it's possible.
umpfag
ist this an official channel?
b0at
official mozilla stuff goes on at irc.mozilla.org
umpfag
and of course they ban tor :D
any tolerated tor port?
xchat here
b0at
i don't see anything on https://wiki.mozilla.org/IRC about allowing Tor connections. there are some administrator email addresses from the MOTD here: http://irc.netsplit.de/networks/Mozilla/
if they do a sasl thing like freenode, you might able to pre-register and connect. but that's unlikely.
umpfag
i see they are as helpful there as in this channel
any active firefox channel?
         

Jake
umpfag: this channel doesn't block Tor, Freenode has tor disabled due to excessive abuse

does anyone else have the problem that pressing enter in the search text box sometimes switches to a different search engine?

does firefox refresh the new tab settings?
does firefox refresh erase the new tab settings?*

I downloaded the latest Silverlight, but still get an out of date warning.

how to fix a search engine?
recently it's stopped working.
FF doesn't provide any button to change search string.
allizom
Fyr: which search engine is that? How did you get it?
Fyr
kinopoisk
installed via mozilla's site.
allizom
Fyr: ok, open about:support
Fyr
done
allizom
then click on Show Profile folder
Fyr
done
allizom
search for a folder named searchplugins
open it, what does it contain
?
Fyr
search plugins
allizom
it should contain one or more .xml files
Fyr
I replaced erroneous search string, restart doesn't affect on the search.
I fixed the search string, but Firefox still uses the old erroneous one.
allizom
you see a folder named xxxxxxxx.default right?
Fyr
yes
allizom
it should contain a folder called searchplugins, open it and tell me what it contains
Fyr
allizom, http://postimg.org/image/6c10wkhxp/
non-working one is selected.
allizom
ok, open kinopoiskru with Notepad
         

Fyr
done
allizom
identify the part with: http://www.kinopoisk.ru/index.php?kp_query={searchTerms}
Fyr
done that
allizom
replace with http://www.kinopoisk.ru/search/?text={searchTerms}
Fyr
done
allizom
save the file, close and restart Firefox
Fyr
done
allizom
try a search :)
Fyr
FF still uses http://www.kinopoisk.ru/index.php/?kp_query=
despite the fact that I replaced the string.
FF 40.0.2
allizom
it shouldn't
Fyr
I guess
allizom
which extension did you save the file with?
Fyr: it has to be .xml
Fyr
it is xml.
allizom
no idea then, works here

I just found that my owl-carousal, which is coming up well and good in my chrome ( www.thinkfoss.com ), and not showing up in my Firefox :(
is it a known bug with carousal ? or am I doing something seriously firefox-wrong ?
b0at
tonythomas: stick a "clear: both" on #owl-home
the little boxes are floating off to the side hidden in the overflow of on of those overly-wide elements
tonythomas
b0at: oh - I never knew that ! That one worked ;) Yay ! Thank you :)
b0at
it may be some interaction between flex and floats in difference between the browsers. i have no idea which is correct.
tonythomas
b0at: anyway, works fine now ! http://www.thinkfoss.com/
