hi
in web console thing
how do I clear it
haasn
Is it possible to import a website's localStorage from another firefox profile?
cerkauskas
Hello. Is there any way to make firefox to run in two different environments? I want my work to be in separate history.
kbrosnan
cerkauskas: -no-remote -P , https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Command_Line_Options
CustosLimen: alt + r or press the clear button
CustosLimen
kbrosnan, ctrl+r works - but I dunno where clear button is
actually ctrl+r refereshes
kbrosnan
i said alt
CustosLimen
ah
kbrosnan, it works in console tab, not in network tab
sorry, I was actually not specific on that
kbrosnan
net / css / js...clear
         

CustosLimen
want to clear the stuff in network tab of the inspector thing
not in console tab
kbrosnan, it works for console tab, the one with net/css/js...clear
but if I go to network tab, and referesh page, there is like 100s of entries there
and if I press alt+r it does not affect those
kbrosnan
i see a clear button in the bottom right of the network tab but I am on nighlty
CustosLimen
kbrosnan, cool found it
kbrosnan, did not see it hiding there ;)
ok, so now next thing
I made a bookmarklet to favourite imgur images
https://bpaste.net/show/f2acdadd98fe
it works on https://imgur.com/3oH7VOl - as it opens https://imgur.com/3oH7VOl/fav.json - but it does not work on https://i.imgur.com/3oH7VOl.jpg cos of CORS
well it also does not work on i.imgur cos it does not replace i.imgur with imgur at the moment, but when it does, it fails with CORS
is there something I can do about this ?
kbrosnan
i don't know much about cors
CustosLimen
ok
thanks for pointing out clear in network tab
krushia
is there an extension that will sync bookmarks to a simple ftp or webdav share?
kbrosnan
i don't know of one
the very oldest versions of sync used webdav but it was flakey
krushia
i'm not a cloud lover, i like to keep things on servers i own
LiquidatorBrunt
hello firefoxers

b0at
it should be possible to run your own sync server, but i haven't heard of anybody actually doing it yet.

Some sites don't seem to try HTML5 <video> if Flash plugin is installed but disabled for that site. Presumably Firefox is still advertising support for Flash -- is there any way to disable this?
SoItBegins
Which sites?
If youtube specifically, there's ways to request that come up.
moobase
any reason not to enable "Media Source Extensions" in firefox? Will compromise security?
Neffi
Umm. Vimeo, and sites of a particular nature which I won't mention.
SoItBegins
Oh.
Neffi
I havent tested if Youtube will do this too, but I ran into it with Vimeo the other day
SoItBegins
You could just temporarily disable the plugin in about:addons.
I don't know of any way a site can check for a flash object if the thing is disabled.
Neffi
That's annoying though. I was hoping to have it disabled globally and not have to enable it when I visit particular sites
SoItBegins
*check for flash being installed
Then just set Flash to 'never activate' in about:addons.
I think some of your 'sites' may not have HTML5 support yet, is the real answer.
         

Neffi
These are sites which I know to have <video> tag support and will use it if Flash is fully disabled or uninstalled, SoItBegins
But if it's only disabled on that site specifically, will not
moobase
is "https everywhere" for firefox good enough or are there better options? Problem is that it's using an incomplete "whitelist" for https servers.
Peng
What else can ya do?
HTTPS Everywhere has an option to block http: requests, and they accept patches to add new rules.
moobase
why would you not have a master password in firefox for saved passwords?
kbrosnan
the behavior is a bit annoying with restoring tabs
gshmu
how to undo refresh firefox
:-!
moobase
gshmu: lol, you can't.
gshmu: if there's something that "disappeared" when you refreshed, you might have that data in some cache or so though.
but that's another story.
Roey
hi
why doesnt' the Enter key work in my firefox URL bar anymore ever since I upgraded to the latest version?
b0at
Roey: maybe an extension. try https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode
Roey
thanks.
b0at: I tried Firefox in safe mode, yet I still come across the same issue.
b0at
ok, try a new profile entirely. close firefox. start firefox with the argument -ProfileManager ("firefox -ProfileManager") and hit "Create new" at the dialog, and see if it still happens.
if so, it's something wrong with the old profile.
and if the new one works, you can back up bookmarks or use firefox sync or exporting extensions to get your data from the old one to the new one.
Roey: does this happen in any other browser or application?
Roey
just with firefox, and here in xchat the enter key works as expected
hmm ok.

how do I fix this ? configure: error: Both D3D compilers _43 and _46+ are required by --enable-require-d3d-compilers.
b0at
Jan\: might have to ask #firefox on irc.mozilla.org, where there are developers. might need to ask during US daylight hours, too.
cerkauskas
hello. how can I diagnose if all my drivers are up to date? since I had only video card drivers installed on my arch, should arch work out-of-box and use the all potential of my hardware?
ateepy
hows it going
having a strange problem in firefox lately
cerkauskas
I feel it could go faster. CPU is used, I think, too excesively. For example, yesterday I installed amarok and it ate a whole of CPU (I mean staying at 95% all the time)
b0at
cerkauskas: probably, but that would be a question for #arch
cerkauskas
oh
wrong channel, sorry :)
im a little bit sleepy
b0at
s'ok :)
ateepy: what problem?
ateepy
one sec
whats best place to host my screenshot?
Peng

b0at

ateepy
