Why does smooth scroll keep enabling itself? I don't want that option.
I don't trust a browser that changes its configuration out of itself.

I just attached a wrong comment to a crash report by mistake (I wrote 'Artefakte' to remind me that this was a case where it crashed after displaying artifacts, but truth is, it didnt, it was just YT which stopped working), is there any way to correct or retract it?
robotdevil
is there a way similar to user agent override to spoof for flash? eg. tell I site I am using a newer version of flash as opposed to firefox linux locked @ 11.2
http://www.ctv.ca/BloodAndOil/video.aspx?vid=713265 namely this one

robotdevil: yes, you can use noscript surrogate to run a script before the page have access to it and modify the content of navigator.plugins
i used that a few years back to make site think i had flash to test shumway

quick raise of hands, please
who else thinks that the mozilla manifesto as described https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/manifesto/ is poorly designed?
it appears to be oriented around 10 vague observations and empty claims
eh I guess the statements in themselves are okay, but the main issue is that they're so many of them
it's like you're reading a shopping list of things to pick up at the internet store
'okay yes, hm, pick up some of those Transparent Community-Based Processes, 4 should be enough'
you can do something on your own initiative and then see how well you stacked up against the manifesto, but I'm not sure how my actions would be proactively directed by 10 statements it would take quite some time to remember
s/it/that
just putting this out there...

hi
is there anyway to open a bookmark directly "pinned"

Hi, is there a separate channel to help fix bugs?

Hi. How do I change firefox's permissions to increase storage quota for IndexedDB?
I'm using firefox version 41.0.1
         

evdw87
brunoais: i think you are looking for dom.indexedDB.warningQuota
configurable from about:config
brunoais
I can't find that key
do I have to create it?
evdw87, ^
evdw87
if it's not there I wonder if it still applies, I use a custom config
if it applies you can just add it
brunoais
I'll create it
Nope
no change
evdw87
where do you test this?
brunoais
A local script on a tool I use at work
It is now using ~600MB of memory
*of disk space
It was working fine yestarday
*yesterday
evdw87
but I think the quota is way lower than 600 mb
b0at
50 megs when that pref still existed, according to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Reviews/Firefox4/IndexedDB_Security_Review
evdw87
I wonder how it would use 600mb
brunoais
It is now, though... But there is or was an option that allowed it to be as high as the disk can handle
I wonder if they removed it
This tool was being soooooo useful for a handful of us
specially because we are not allowed to store these stuff in a "real" DB
evdw87
there used to be a bug on chrome where websites could fill your entire harddisk, firefox was never affected
you have been localstorage instead of indexdb
*could
brunoais
I'm using IndexedDB
It requires random access
evdw87
yeah, i'm not sure if it was indexeddb or localstorage
brunoais
otherwise, it is a memory hog keeping all that
Oh
Anyway, I think it was an option that enabled this behaviour; allowing unlimited storage
I think it was the option to allow storing offline data
evdw87
it's a really bad idea to allow unlimited storage
brunoais
If it is a whitelist, I can't think how it can be bad
in this case, it works in a closed "sandbox"
"dom.indexedDB.warningQuota: The disk size in megabytes that one origin can consume before the user is prompted for permission. Defaults to 50." <-
That's perfectly fine
Now I want MORE
evdw87
a whitelist could work, sure, but I don't think there was an option at all, could be wrong though
greedy bastard, just kidding
brunoais
There's the website permissions
activating it was supposed to enable that
There's nothing in the "Firefox 41 for developers" in MDN...
evdw87
I must admit that I don't know the difference between local storage and indexeddb, but isn't it possible to use local sotrage instead?
brunoais
It isn't
Well... It is but it is REALLY unviable
         

evdw87
brunoais: what if you would put the value to 0? you would get a warning at every execution of indexeddb, would it have a limit?
when you accept of course..
brunoais
testing...
b0at
here's the change where that pref was removed, fwiw: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/ef4823baf754
that may connect to a place where it's explained in bugzilla. this is all i found.
brunoais
T.T
thank you b0at
I filed a bug.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1212985
ty for trying to help too, evdw87
evdw87
you're welcome, good luck
brunoais
ty
evdw87
brunoais: do you maybe know how I could clear indexeddb from inside firefox?
brunoais
I do know, yes
evdw87
can it be done from a userscript as well?
brunoais
Clearing all data from all websites?
evdw87
yeah, preferably
brunoais
impossible
you can't get permissions or accesses for such thing
evdw87
why's that?
I can clear local storage from a userscript
brunoais
you need to access using the ComponentsUtils
evdw87
hmm
brunoais
That's only for a single website
not all websites
for a single website you can and it is straightforward
evdw87
please tell me
wodim
hello, was the possibility of selecting two parts of text at once removed?
brunoais
evdw87, After you open the connection
(here, "db" is the variable with the connection)
ups
