varaindemian: ublock is nice too
and there we also get a ublock and ublock origin for whatever reason
Zzyzx
uMatrix + uBlock Origin = sharks with laser beams
b0at
i like policeman's interface
ptrz
does anyone else have issues using hotkeys like Ctrl+K and Ctrl+L in fullscreen? They won't work with some of the window managers I'm using.
varaindemian
xrogaan: does ublock has good defaults or do I need to set something special after install?
xrogaan
works fine as long as you select your lists
Roey
hi
why do I see ads on Youtube even thgough I thought I blocked them with AdBlock and a new /etc/hosts file which explicitly lists youtube resources?

hi
hi guys i am using firefox on xmonad and its locking up now... i cant click on stuff and i cant get out of full screen some times.
unresponsive
i should have the latest iceweasel in debian jessie
Mozilla Iceweasel 42.0
restarted it again hoping it works now
noep
nope
auscompgeek
"Mozilla Iceweasel 42.0" what? firstly, Iceweasel isn't a Mozilla product (it's Debian's rebranded Firefox), secondly, Iceweasel is most definitely not 42.0 yet
         

Eryn_1983_FL
lol
thats what it says
yeah i do know its rebranded firefox,
no idea what weird build it is,
auscompgeek
https://packages.debian.org/sid/iceweasel https://packages.debian.org/experimental/iceweasel
definitely not 42.0 anywhere.
Eryn_1983_FL
42.0~b1-1~bpo80+1
auscompgeek
what on earth are you doing
Eryn_1983_FL
?
auscompgeek
I would suggest asking #debian. Firefox shouldn't have any problems with tiling WMs.
Eryn_1983_FL
ok,
wondering why the versions are off,
auscompgeek
you should probably stop messing around with your system then...
42 is still beta
dorkling
Does anybody know if Firefox will be dropping NPAPI support any time soon?
auscompgeek
Probably not.
dorkling
auscompgeek That's good news. Any idea when, if ever, they will? Do you have any source data I could get my hands on?
Philias
So, I still get those black rectangles with disabled hw-accel., any chance updating to version 41.0.1 from 41.0 will make them go away? Or rather, should I fix a bug report?
anddam
on OS X can I drop the content of ~/Library/Caches/Mozilla/Updates once Firefox (the only product I use) has been updated?
Philias
Still Vista 32-bit, with newest graphics drivers (from 2013), mobile NVidia graphics, 105M
If it helps, when Im in about:config and move over the rows, they often go black one by one, always full rows, but sometimes they stay normal and then if I go over black rows, they sometimes turn normal again
So they are alternating between blacked out and normal
But not every row changes on every move over
And then sometimes the whole upper part, including some rows, goes black
The cursor blinks through
(The upper part of the config window, the rest of the browser interface curiously doesnt exhibit that behaviour)
Oh, now its not the full upper part anymore that goes black, but there is a strip of about a few millimeters (on my monitor) which changes separately
And then there is a part of about one millimeter right at the top of the sites area which changes separately and not over the whole length; additionally, the text in the text box also went black a few times, as if censored
layers.acceleration.disabled is set to true
dddh
hi
with firefox 41 EV certs are not green anymore?
Cork
dddh: they are, if the name is too long it reduced the size of the field though
dddh
Cork: probably my build doesn't respect EV

anddam
anyone about the cache thing? I figure it applies to other platforms as well
Cork
anddam: all data in caches can be dropped
that is by definition a cache is disposable
anddam
Cork: sounds right, I wonder why updates stuff are kept if such updates have been applied
also is it normal that Firefox got cache stuff in ~/Library/Caches/Mozilla ?
I ask I see ~/Library/Caches/Firefox as well
         

Cork
i don't know mac
anddam
is this a platform specific topic?
Cork
yes
i suspect it is the same as ~/.cache/mozilla in linux
and that is where programs are support to put there cache
but that is me guessing
anddam
yes, apart the naming it's the very same
s/support/supposed I guess
I see, thanks
actually now I'm on debian, let's check for firefox folder as well
Philias
Back again
Cork
its there
anddam
mozilla/firefox
Cork
ya
anddam
on OS X I have Caches/Firefox and Caches/Mozilla IIRC
i.e. siblings rather than parent-child folders
Cork
that is mac specific
and i don't know why
anddam
well let me double check
Cork
actually cache location is platform specific
in it it is in $HOME\AppData\Local if i remember correctly
anddam
yes siblings
Cork
uh...
*in windows it is* :)
anddam
AppData sounded window-ish
Cork
ya
anddam
I guess cache location is platform specific, but once a folder is picked up its inner layout should be the same
Cork
my point is where things are stored for updated and cache varies a lot based on platform (and if it is a relative or absolute profile path)
anddam
maybe developers diverged a bit in platform specific code
ok, I'll just clean it tho
Cork
ya, it is more then just the location
anddam
ah I see
Cork
the structure differs a bit too
anddam
I flushed the dir away, FF will re-store what it needs
Cork
ya
Voldenet
hello
what is "Pocket" and why I don't need this?
Teduardo
Has anyone had an issue recently where firefox cannot connect to ssl.google-analytics.com to get the ga tracker image?
Voldenet
disable adblock
and addons that protect your privacy
they disable google analytics image
