any way to enable touchscreen scrolling (drag finger to scroll page) on desktop firefox (other than using some outdated extensions)?
user1138
What's going to replace flash? Silverlight?
delac
lol
ShalokShalom
if someone wants to get around this annoying flash notifications, while security holes disable flash by default: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/hide-plugin-notifications/
user1138
90% of the internet uses flash
Peng
not this week!

delac

Adobe really made a big mistake by not supporting flash on iOS

Hey guys, I have this crazy idea for something I want to do with ff. I want to be able to select a window on my desktop and "incorporate" it into the web page i'm reading.
having the text wrap around it as if it were a movable iframe or something within the page itself.
anyone have any pointers on where to start doing something like that?
b0at
i guess theoretically you could write a plugin that does that. you'd be pretty deep into your window manager or win32 api, though.
and then a little greasemonkey script or extension to insert into a page
Gargantua
I'm on openbox on nix
I have a bit of experience with hacking its backend
no idea what to do ff side though.

hi all
b0at
the way i've heard flash working on windows, for example, is that you end up with a window handle that you could move another window into. if x11/xorg does the same, maybe it's that "easy"
RIdley5
my Firefox say that the flash plugin is vulnerable but i cant find new version
Wulf
RIdley5: remove it.
RIdley5
heuu... Wulf
Wulf
flash is broken by design
b0at
Gargantua: it might be worth looking at a simple plugin's source, like that of the npapi vlc plugin on *nix
RIdley5
any sollution to view facebook video ?
Gargantua
I guess the first step is figuring out how to get a "sub window" into the page
b0at
yep
Wulf
RIdley5: remove facebook too
Gargantua
then just figure out a way to route the app into it
aw sh*t, and input/out
RIdley5
my girl friend wana miss me Wulf
Wulf
RIdley5: delete her.
RIdley5
lol
do you give me your's ?
:p
         

Wulf
RIdley5: not for me to decide
RIdley5
im pretty and she wana be happy with me
b0at
Gargantua: the vlc plugin source is here: https://ftp.videolan.org/pub/pub/videolan/vlc-webplugins/2.2.0/npapi-vlc-2.2.0.tar.xz
though on second thought you'll want to find npapi documentation that might be at http://developer.mozilla.org/
and that plugin is less simple-looking than i expected...
Gargantua
thanks bolt_
b0at too :P
sorry, new font, not used to the 0 an o's yet.

i got a sollution Wulf : https://greasyfork.org/fr/scripts/8176-switch-to-mobile-version-on-facebook-video-page

does anyone have an answer to the question.. why does firefox complain about SHA1 message authentication (for SSL) ?
and secondarily to that.. why does firefox not support SHA256 or SHA384 with AES256?
chrome appears to have the same behaviour.. and i haven't really been able to find a satisfactory answer to that
so it appears the most secure cipher in modern browsers.. is AES128 GCM SHA256
which if you read up on GCM.. is approx 5x more efficient, and works well with hardware accelerators.. but i can't help but feel this is a compromise on overall security
satdav
snadge: what website is this on
snadge
any website
satdav
also is this for windows xp
snadge
what im talking about appears to be a limitation on the client side.. not the server side, and has nothing to do with the certificate itself
we're talking about the cipher suite
openssl will happily use AES256 GCM SHA384
satdav
snadge: can you join #firefox at irc.mozilla.org
snadge
sure.. one moment
satdav
snadge: what is your nick over there
snadge
still trying to connect.. my irc ports are blocked at work, so i have to list alternate ports
satdav
cool
snadge: can you use mibbit.com
and connect that way
snadge
im on using hexchat (what im using now) and SSL on port 8443 :D
same nick
satdav
snadge:brosnan is from the QA team at Mozilla
can you ping me at #firefox over there
b0at
snadge: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Security/Weak_Signature_Algorithm describes part of what they're doing
the blog post that page links to has more details and a description of the deprecation timeline
snadge
i want to appreciate what the difference between an certificate signature, and the hashing algorithm used for message authentication
they are two seperate things
eg.. my certificate is signed with SHA256
but for whatever reason, firefox only supports SHA1 with AES256

hi , regarding adblock on mobile, does it work well on firefox ?
I cant stand these ads anymore
I heard it works on firefox, not sure, its either that or adaway or something
xangua
what works┬┐
b0at
walder: "Adblock Plus" and "uBlock Origin" both work extremely well.
walder
b0at ok
bleak_fire_
not adblock plus
b0at
ABP has a nicer interface, in my opinion, because the "blocked items" pane is understandable. But uBlock is supposed to be faster.
bleak_fire_
wh**ed out
walder
Id like to avoid having some sh*t running in the background
b0at
ABP still maintains the block lists and all the extra stuff they added can be turned off
bleak_fire_
sedo, amazon, google, and other big money makers pay them to get on a whitelist
xangua
adb also has this companion addon adblock plus popup
bleak_fire_
i'm currently using adblock edge, which was recently discontinued but still works
walder
well im not installing that
xangua
not sure if it works with other adb plus forks
walder
last I used was adaway, but I dont know a good place to download it from
because I needeed some extra app
bleak_fire_
it doesnt matter if you can turn it off. i dont install wh**eware
mafiaware
b0at
walder: firefox extensions are available mostly from https://addons.mozilla.org/ and checked to some extent by mozilla
it's not an external proxy thing. these ad blockers just work
(for the current firefox profile)
