I've noticed YT and FF not getting along lately, myself. figured it was the GPU thermal paste failing on my MBP
used to work fine
tpw_rules
it got much worse after the switch to html5
i was fine with flash and actually forced it back to flash for a while. but it doesn't support higher res videos and it tends to drop frame
b0at
i get 720p on linux, which is good enough for me
at least the way i have it configured now
advcomp2019_
b0at, yea.. if i can get 720p, i am good with that too
i have a friend that says why.. you are better with 1080p
b0at
and between mpv/smplayer, vlc, and livestreamer, i can probably pull in 1080p, though i rarely notice a difference
advcomp2019_
that same friend says you need to 4k displays because you get better video then too
b0at
as long as he's paying, i agree!
advcomp2019_
yea
i have been stuck with screens that only does 720p but for my tvs and my new laptop that does 1080p

Hello to all, I need help ! I use Firefox on Linux and many file types get opened by wrong application , when I look in Pref->Applications , there is "Always ask" for those filetypes ..
but I do not get any Question for chosing app. How to find or change "Always ask" behaveour
I understand , that this part could be related to OS not Firefox anymore, but could somebody point me to where to look..
b0at
if the server sends a file as attachment or application/octet+stream, it'll also always ask, regardless of what it really is
Pe3ucTop
I have configured to always ask where to download files, but right now I ask about action for already downloaded files, when I press Downloads -> "double click" on downloaded file ..
ali1234
i can't see hashtags on twitter
any idea why?
kbrosnan
without any specifics https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems for th twitter issue
ali1234
i can see them in safe mode
apparently it's adblock+
Pe3ucTop
any help about "Always Ask" action for downloaded files ??
advcomp2019_
ali1234, i dont use adblock+ any more.. i use ublock origin
Pe3ucTop, have you tried safe mode
ali1234
i don't see any reason to stop using adblock
b0at
you could open the blocked items panel and disable filters
i think it's ctrl+shift+e
ali1234
i don't actually care that hashtags are blocked
i just wondered why
twitter looks really funny to me now, it's like madlibs
b0at
well, that definitely shows which bits are blocked and what rule caused it
ali1234
it's something in the "fanboy-annoyance" filter list
which most people don't use
kbrosnan
it is dependent on several things file that the server is sending needs to be a unique mime type. The mime type must exist in one of the couple places that linux choses to store the associations
Pe3ucTop
advcomp2019_: Thanks, after execution FireFox in safe mode problem gone..
advcomp2019_
Pe3ucTop, then it is an addon issue
if it works fine in safe mode
Pe3ucTop
advcomp2019_: in safe mode ok, and after it in standard mode now is Ok :)

Hi, is there no way to delete a pastebin from https://pastebin.mozilla.org/ ?
share
Lara: not if you or someone else chose "forever"
Lara
That's what I'm asking. I like using this pastebin because it's simple but there should be a way to delete those too...
         

Peng
In an emergency, presumably you could contact IT
Lara
It's not an emergency but I was just wondering, thanks. Don't have anything permanent I need to delete right now. How would I contact them?
tpw_rules
advcomp2019_: heh i watch 720p most of the time. but it has trouble dropping frames which is the main issue for me
advcomp2019_
i sometimes get that when there is a bad set of drivers
tpw_rules
it's osx on a mac. not much choice there
i mean it'll drop like 2 every few seconds but i can notice it and it's one of those things that makes me need to punch something

anyone knows how to code a greasemonkey script?
houndedshrue
Has anyone else noticed the disappearance of noscript in Firefox for Android? It doesn't show up in search and won't install. It also appears to have been removed from another Android device on which it was working previously.
I'm not sure if that worked I was on my phone before.
I have noticed that noscript addon for firefox android is not available in the addons search and will not install. I have also noticed that it has been automatically removed from another device on which it was working previously. Does anyone know anything about this?
SunMoonStar
Anyone know why only some fonts are available to choose as a default font?
Am on linux
FreeSans, Noto Sans, others Droid Sans.. these are not available though they are installed
seems like it's only looking at ~/.fonts
syntroPi
Does Firefox on Android use hardware acellerated codecs for vp8/9?
SunMoonStar
Just had to restart Firefox

Anyone knows if there is an option to use firefox in a slimmer window like in safari?
something like an add on theme that makes firefox top ui elements smaller
more space for the actual site
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/the-fox-only-better/
found something

Afternoon
browser.tabs.remote.autostart is set to False in about:config, but Firefox with no extensions and no pages loaded still spawns a couple of dozen child processes
(inc. in safe mode)
What are all of those for? Did I actually disable e10s?
b0at
i only get one, in the release/stable version. are you sure those aren't threads?
Caspy7
FLHerne: a couple dozen processes? That does sound like e10s - well, I don't know how many it typically spawns, but with e10s off, there shouldn't be more than a couple associated with Firefox
FLHerne: guessing you're on a prerelease
Cork
FLHerne: first of what version?
also firefox uses child processes even when it doesn't load pages in them (for thumbnailing, plugins etc.)
FLHerne
42.0, Arch package (no patches, afaik)
Cork
so you should normally find a firefox and a plugin-container (i think they have/are about to rename that one)
Caspy7
FLHerne: 42 does not even offer e10s
Cork
welll that isn't true
release doesn't offer it
but 38+ has it in pre release
b0at
i'm running the same and i have one firefox process
FLHerne
https://i.imgur.com/3Vw4PYz.png
Lots and lots of processes
Cork
FLHerne: that looks like threads
hard to tell with so limited information
FLHerne
Oh, I cropped off the PIDs. They have different ones ;-)
Cork
FLHerne: also currently e10s only spawns one extra process
Caspy7
yeah, that's a pretty context-less screenshot
b0at
in `top` after i hit H i get a bunch of threads with useful names, like "JS Helper', "DOM Worker", etc
FLHerne
Caspy7: I sorta guessed that (what should I be screenshotting?)
Cork
FLHerne: also threads have different pids
FLHerne: what os and what tool are you using?
FLHerne
Bleh, PEBKAC then
Sorry
Cork
ah, right you said arch
FLHerne: if your using htop go into settings and either choose "hide userland threads"
or "display threads in a different color"
that should make things more clear
FLHerne
You're right about them being threads, but I didn't realise they didn't share the PID
Now I know that, which probably won't be helpful for much, but anyway :-)
