b0at: that's the main problem of FF...

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children doesn't support Firefox on Linux it seems! http://imgh.us/Selection_069.png
I tired it on Firefox and Chrome as well for Linux - Ubuntu 14.04
allizom
designbybeck_: can you please visit http://echo.opera.com and paste here the User-Agent: string?
designbybeck_
uhhh
meaning I need opera and visit the site again allizom ?
allizom
no, just open that URL with Firefox
designbybeck_
oh
allizom, this? User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0
allizom
yes, let me check
It works here with that string
designbybeck_
allizom, here was the link I tired to go to: http://www.missingkids.com/poster/NCMC/1255938
         

allizom
I've got two news for you, one bad one good
The bas is that I don't know why it loads here and not for you
*bad
The good is that page gives error 404 so you can't look at it no matter what
designbybeck_
haha
well thank ya for checking in on it at least allizom, I have a windows and mac laptop here I could check it on as well, but I'd rather use my Linux machine!
..I think the kid was found, so I was going to past the link back to someone who posted they were missing
allizom
I understand :)
designbybeck_
Thanks
CPngN

Hi?

Hi
justJanne
Is there a way to prevent access to window.location from an addon?
evdw87
justJanne: maybe it's possible with a userscript
justJanne
evdw87: I tried, not possible
Ill try compiling FF from source and just renaming the property  should fix the issue ;)
evdw87
justJanne: what is a good site to test this?
justJanne
BILD.DE  if you have AdBlock on, you get redirected (after they tried to sue ABP in court and lost)
So now Im trying to add a console.trace() to any access to location, which is not normally possible, but if I rename location, it should be possible
(Idea is effectively; rename window.location to window.actualLocation, add a Userscript that defines getter and setter for window.location that do console.trace and then access window.location)
So I can debug the script easier.
evdw87
hmm, it doesn't seem to happen with ublock
let's start another session
auscompgeek
NoScript <3
evdw87
justJanne: I tried window.location = "" but that results in an infinite refresh :p
justJanne
evdw87: yes, any writing to that property reloads, which is an issue.
evdw87
justJanne: any clue why this happens? server side?
justJanne
Effectively, it would be nice to be able to set a JS breakpoint on access to any variable
No, that's standard behaviour. And intended.
The issue is that I can't set an automatic break as soon as it happens, as window.location is in native code.
Sorry

Hi, I installed 8u60.exe for FireFox 32bit on windows 10 pro 32bit. There doesn't seem to be a Java directory in Program Files or a Java Cntrl Panel I can find. I would like to use the whitelist for a website I'm giving a certificate issue.
         

auscompgeek
have you looked in the Windows Control Panel for the Java Control Panel yet? :P
Digi-Foo
Yes I have looked in the cntrl panel. and in the program files directory and porgram data directory for the *cpl file to open manually. Why doesn't Mozilla put a Java plugin on their addon site?
auscompgeek
because Java isn't written by Mozilla?
Digi-Foo
What's up flash? Since I installed it for an Edu site I'm using browsing is more painful that usual.
Thanks for the Java info tho.
clockers
I want to make my browsing experience... faster. I can't tolerate jittering when I'm scrolling down a page, for example. I don't care if images are perfect, or if some stupid video is playing in the background
i want fast access to information
noting else
nothing
can I adjust firefox to this notion, or is there one that already exists that fulfills it?

clockers: this might interest you. it's basically firefox--

Whenever I visit a porn site with a lot of flash tabs open on ubuntu with firefox, it always lags to the point where my system becomes unusable, whereas chrome goes chugging through my tug material like a champ. I highly dislike chrome, is there a way I can fix this on firefox? I'm using Ubuntu 15.04 and have used both the developer preview and most recent edition
3 xhamster tabs and my material suddenly goes like 3fps
lizzie
USRP: uninstall flash? or install ublock origin
personally I use chrome for flash content (because of the sandbox) and firefox for everything else
especially if you're on somewhat sketchier sites, you want to be really careful about using an unsandboxed flash plugin. though xhamster is pretty mainstream
USRP
I do run ublock origin
I have to use flash because it's a porn site
lizzie
oh, is it failing to lock the ads?
USRP
no the ads are being blocked, it is unrelated to the ads
lizzie
hmm they don't have html5 streams yet?
USRP
nope
:(
lizzie
oh I see, the problem is just a bunch of flash plugins being loaded
USRP
how does chrome seem to avoid this issue
lizzie
well google maintains their own branch of flash that ships with chrome
I wouldn't be surprised if they have performance improvements as well as the sandbox
USRP
I see, that sucks :(
lizzie
USRP: but I just checked and when I visit xhamster with no flash plugin enabled, it serves me direct mp4 downloads
USRP
I will retry like that
lizzie
ok
USRP
so far so good
lizzie
yeah I'm actually impressed, that's a lot nicer than most non-porn streaming sites that try to hide the raw video download from you
USRP
nah still starts to choke after 10 faps open
tabs
lizzie
close the tabs after you start the download :P

hi. i have a piece of legacy hardware that's still in production, that has no option to use TLS, meaning i'm stuck with sslv3 for the time being. How can i access it's web interface in firefox-41? setting security.tls.version.fallback-limit and security.tls.version.min to 0 did not work

my @media jumped on android chrome between two different @media blocks. When the viewport changes size (scrolling down) chrome changed the @media and repainted.
android Firefox didnt repaint. I had an @media for both min and height that conflicted. Not sure which browser implemented this correctly.

JonathanC: make a demo in jsfiddle

hi all, how do I tell firefox to try a search when I enter an invalid url in location bar, ex: format.sh
hassoon
anyone who can tell me what's wrong with my firefox in debian ? (aka Iceweasel)
when i scroll down my gmail's page, iceweasel/firefox crashes
that's what i get in the terminal http://pastebin.ca/3196583
lizzie
looks like a graphics driver issue
hassoon: may I ask what gpu and what driver you use?
to be fair, ideally firefox should support any common graphics driver without fatally crashing, so if you test it in real firefox (not iceweasel) and have the same problem, you should file a bug
but you might be able to update your graphics drivers as a quick fix
hassoon
lizzie: i have an intel 4400 HD, using the open source drivers, with hardware acceleration forcefully enabled in firefox/iceweasel
lizzie: ah there is a security update for iceweasel announced in debian/org
lizzie
hmm maybe hardware acceleration forcefully enabled is the issue? did that mean bypassing compatibility checks? :P
when you force the browser to ignore compatibility checks, you do so at your own risk
