Why does firefox refuse to clear a 301 redirect?
b0at
probably cached because it's meant to be permanent
rachelfish
I've tried clearing my cache, offline files, and editing the caching options in about:config
b0at
open the developer tools with F12 and go to the network tab, or Tools -> Web Developer -> Network, and see what the server's responding with.
it'll show whether it's cached, too
rachelfish
it just automatically redirects to the other site
if I do a curl, it shows me the proper page
so I know it's firefox caching the 301
b0at
is that what the network tools say? maybe the server is delivering the redirect to different user agents.
rachelfish
I configured the server, it's not
b0at: it also works fine when I open a private browsing window
it's *only* in my main browser window
I even installed the "Web Developer" addon to disable the cache
no effect
b0at
huh. i guess they stick that stuff in the same unclearable cache they put the hsts crap in.
it may be possible to clear that with "forget this site" in the context menu from an entry in the history.
rachelfish
right but then that would delete all of my history for all of the urls, not just the subdomain
I only want to clear a single subdomain, not *.everything
         

b0at
the subdomain may appear as a separate entry in about:permissions, which also has a "Forget this site" button
rachelfish
Thanks for the tip, but it doesn't appear there
*sigh*
I guess I'll just forget this site
nope
same thing
LOL
b0at
ugh, what a mess
a comment here suggests you also need to delete the history entry that led to the 301, if it was from another site: http://superuser.com/questions/467999/clear-301-redirect-cache-in-firefox
i assume that just means the history and not forgetting all cached data from that site, too
also i assume it means just the one page
rachelfish
Yes, I made sure I did that
b0at
ok. dang.
rachelfish
it was a redirect from http://mydomain to https://mydomain
I removed it in nginx, but it's now force redirecting me always
b0at
if the 301 weren't involved, i'd say clearing the site preferences would be enough, per http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2626343 but "forget this site" does that and more.
rachelfish
okay, I fixed it by checking all of the options in "clear your recent history"

the sessionstore.js file is not getting updated, so when the firefox hangs it losses the last tabs opened (not everyone, but it recovers an old session) , can I do anything to a) recover my last session tabs b) know what to do to solve this issue
Caspy7
Resilience: there may be a better solution, but some workarounds include doing a refresh (which will import your main data and tabs to a fresh profile but not addons) though "tab state" will be lost (scroll position, maybe history of the tab) and also using the Session Manager addon
which does a good job
Resilience
Caspy7, erh... but waht's happening? why sometimes when firefox hangs up it losses its state and recovers and older session?
Caspy7
I don't know. That's why I said there may be a better solution, but I thought I'd mention those
Resilience
Caspy7, sessionstore.js still holds the sessio? or isit in other file?
Caspy7
I know they made a chance at some point in the past as to how it's stored...
...or maybe that's just backups
Resilience
Caspy7, I am sorry, I don't understand what you're saying
Caspy7
Resilience: do you have a sesssionstore-backups folder in your profile folder?
Resilience
Caspy7, yes I do
Caspy7
Resilience: when was recovery.js last modified?
Resilience
Caspy7, about an hour ago
Caspy7
I think that may be the new file that's used
         

Resilience
Caspy7, what new file? where are store now the session? not anymore in sessionstore.js?
Caspy7
yes, that's what I said above
Resilience: sorry, I meant to say change, not chance
Resilience
Caspy7, ok, now your sentence seems to have a little sense but... where are the session stored now?
Caspy7
Resilience: I think it may be recovery.js
Resilience
caspy so I can safely delete the old sessionstore.js?
in fact they are very old
Caspy7
...probably, but why delete it?
if you want to be cautious and testing about it, at least rename or move it first to make sure all is well
Resilience
Caspy7, yes, I was meaning that O :o)
Caspy7
ah

Is anyone else running Aurora getting an immediate crash whenever a pdf.js doc tries to load?
CMEPTb
great. I've wanted a tab group like feature for firefox forever, never found a plugin that was good with doing that, now, i find out this exists, because of news that you guys are removing it. screw you! are you trying to become IE or something?
seedbox
CMEPTb: nobody was using it, and it was becoming a maintenance burden. I'm sure it will live on as an extension though
CMEPTb
well i just found out it exists, and i already love it and can't live w/o it! wnated this forever.. i have at least 2 dozen tabs at any given time... how is it going to become an extension?
btw, I use the ESR version. will it at least not get removed from there for a while? how long?
you know, i bet now that people have found out there is such a thing as tab groups, they will bi**h so loudly and vehemetly to not remove it, that you will hopefully cave in.
can the tab group code be easily made available as plugin? do that! doesn't matter how as long as this functionality exists somewhere
vldcnst
Using the Addon SDK, how would I be able to get the positioning of a sdk/context-menu.Item()?
seedbox
vldcnst: you're better off asking at irc.mozilla.org #extdev
vldcnst
thanks!

How can I modify the color scheme for about:reader (or whatever the default reader-mode thing is called)? I want the sepia scheme to have black text.
