Can anybody tell me, why FF's console won't display my console.log(); statement, but Chrome displays it just fine.

In the boilerplate for the mozilla public license, is there a reason for not having a copyright line like most other licenses?
kbrosnan
there is no copyright assignment in mozilla
i vaguely recall the discussion about dates in the source were a source of needless commits
TommyC
kbrosnan: Ah, thank you.
Roey
hello all
kbrosnan: hello there
all, so.. for some reason after I updated Fx this time, I found that the URL bar is not responsive to the Enter keys, or to the "go" arrow. and that my URLs no longer complete inline (the dropdown shows, but when I select an entry, nothing happens). I tried loading with a new profile and it works, but I'd like to find out what this issue is.
moobase
is thunderbird part of the mozilla project, that is, the firefox guys?
Can't you hide your IP in the mail headers in thunderbird with the new gmail authentication method?
b0at
gmail can add headers as it pleases... i figured they add the ip header, not the pop/imap client
in fact, usually the local address is an internal local address, like 192.168.1.2, and that's all thunderbird would know
moobase
will not accepting third party cooies destroy anything?
I don't need those, right?
         

Peng
Some websites might be unhappy.
moobase
screw them then, they should learn to respect privacy.
Roey
moobase: absolutely.
moobase
lol, I love how it's sometimes hard to get a relevant answer when people mix emotions into the question, or read the question backwards.
"Windows is excellent, works fine for me. Why would I want to use OpenBSD?". It's a legit question. And people goes "troll" "Nobody is forcing you to use OpenBSD" blah blah. I asked a strictly neutral logical question.
Roey
dude I completely understand you
people get defensive very easily because they misunderstand the question or the intention behind the question
moobase: I've installed quite a number of Add-Ons in the effort to keep my stuff private
cousin_luigi
Anyone alive?
Peng
Duer: wtf
cousin_luigi
Is "firefox -remote "ping()" still supposed to be working?
b0at
don't remember. there might be an up-to-date page on command-line options on developer.mozilla.org.
i'd look myself, but i'm too lazy.
chamunks
Desktop notifications, how do I get rid of it forever.
cousin_luigi
b0at: apparently it was removed in 36 and restored in 36.1
-remote, that is
b0at
ok
chamunks: the ones that say you have an update, or the html5 thing? i haven't seen the latter.
chamunks
I've installed some privacy plugins
cousin_luigi
b0at: But it doesn't say whether ping() should work or not
chamunks
They notify me when the cookies are destroyed by playing this obnoxious Mac notificaiton noise.
b0at
chamunks: oh, then that's all in the extension
cousin_luigi
Any idea whom I could ask about it? It's X11-specific.
chamunks
and an even more annoying intrusive popup slides in from the top right.
God damnit.
There has to be a way to prevent this from ever happening.
b0at
cousin_luigi: #firefox on irc.mozilla.org, though it might not be any more active until daylight hours, or somebody familiar with packaging firefox on *nix or your distro/bsd
chamunks
I think that it can be done via http://i.imgur.com/TgsuD9V.png
If I did it right it seems to have stopped making that aweful noise.
I wouldnt be mad if the wifey wasn't trying to sleep. I need sound on for other things but osx's sound controls are very lackluster.
         

cousin_luigi
b0at: I'm already there, but no answer either. Will wait I suppose.
b0at: Apparently it has been removed for good:/
Apparently I'll have to muck around with the output of ps:/ Not my favourite way to spend a Saturday morning.
b0at
seems odd to remove it when it should be a minimal addition to the existing small instance-handling code
cousin_luigi
b0at: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1080319 https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-release/file/d3b3e57e8088/browser/components/nsBrowserContentHandler.js#l345 <- apparently it was too platform-specific:/

Hi, I get an error when updating my recurring contribution settings at sendto.mozilla.org. Where can I report the problem?
furrykef
I had a download that was blocked because it "may contain a virus or spyware". Is there a way to get more specific information about what the scanner thinks may be lurking inside the file?
xangua
what did you download┬┐
furrykef
Just a program.
arthurfiggis
hello! I've installed firefox from the mozilla website directly (using debian), i'm wondering what you need to install to display certain unicode characters properly though? e.g. on one website i'm viewing currently, it's showing a box containing "E8 00" rather than...whatever it's supposed to be :)
haasn
Is there a way to list all about:config entries that I have changed from their defaults?
Roey
furrykef: am
furrykef: a*hem*, fancy meeting you here
lescactus
haasn: You can sort entries by their status
haasn
lescactus: Ah, indeed I can; although I was hoping for a plaintext interface that I could eg. copy/paste
Tiraspol
did firefox just switch from 8 "new tab icons" to 4?
on that latest update?
haasn
(Also, on about:config I can't even select multiple rows; I also can't seem to find a way to delete an entry. Finally, is it possible to export/import entries?)
Although a plaintext list that I could copy from would be an acceptable work-around for exporting/importing
lescactus
Tiraspol
if any mozilla firefox devs are in here, please fix this issue in the next update:
https://support.mozilla.org/bs/questions/1070365
having to do "ctrl -" every time on a new tab, is a little annoying. thanks.
(this only relates to FF39, the previous versions are fine)
haasn
lescactus: ah thanks, that's pretty much exactly what I was looking for
so much better than about:config :)
lescactus
=)
haasn
Man, I managed to clean out like 90% of the junk from that file

Hi, I'm having a problem with the "shockwave Flash" plugin on firefox. I've recently updated to firefos 39.0 and the flash plugin to 11.2.202.481, then I started having "core dump" on certain web pages. After deactivating all my plugins I narrowed it down to the flash plugin, which makes firefox coredump as soon as I enable it on some web page.
haasn
This firefox profile literally dates back to version 2.x
Any other tips I could do to try and slim down the amount of garbage in a very old firefox profile?
kstenger
I am wondering if there's something I can do to report this problem, get a better trace and where to publish it. Thanks
lescactus
haasn: In the about:support page, there is a button to fix Firefox
haasn
lescactus: Neat, thanks
Though I'm not sure if any of those buttons are useufl
one just deletes all my settings, the other disables my addons :p
I guess I have to do it by hand
oh god, my firefox profile contains files dating back to at least 2008
(extensions.log's first entry)
There we go, deleted absolutely everything that seemed outdated or useless from my firefox profile, that got it down from about 400MB to about 100MB
(with the rest being about 50% places.sqlite and 50% extensions/)
furrykef
So, does anyone know how to get more specific information about why Firefox thinks a file might contain malware?
I'd like to be able to have an informed opinion rather than take FF's word for it. You know how often these things get false positives.
tiblock
Hi. I think I found bug in mozilla, is this correct place?
*in firefox I mean
b0at
furrykef: a file or a domain? it can hook into the system's antivirus software somehow when it downloads something, but it also has google's malwire site list thing on by default
s/malwire/malware/
tiblock: use bugzilla.mozilla.org to officially report it, and search for similar existing bugs. #firefox on irc.mozilla.org has more developers than here. but any question is game for this channel.
tiblock
b0at, ah thank you
furrykef
b0at -- a file. The only malware scanner I have installed is Windows Defender, and its logs don't show anything.
I think maybe Firefox takes the hash of the downloaded file and looks it up in a database?
In any case it didn't block the file until after it was already downloaded.
So I doubt it's just the URL.
