i've been having issues with firefox/nightly crashing on a constant basis, where it's not even usable. I've reinstalled/updated/replaced all the plugins and I'm up to date on everything... Also I unpacked the nightly root directory and fixed permissions on all the files and subfolders for /opt/firefox (linux). can anyone provide a suggestion?
any suggestions would be helpful
stallmen
mcurran:
answer me
mcurran
yes
stallmen
yes?
its not a yes or no question
mcurran
there is no question? you provided no question to me, or i didn't get it
you simply wrote mcurran: followed by another line 'answer me;
is the latest-trunk the most experimental/new release/tree of firefox/nightly
i'm wondering if latest aurora or central might be newer
found it, damn I'm good. If i run firefox as sudo no crashes, so it's a file permissions issue somewhere, probably because i had the firefox root user set and the plugins directories/symliks done with root set
stallmen
mcurran: yu odidnt help me
thanks a lot :)
i need an addon that is like omnibar
but shows the search results
in the thing
mcurran: do you know what addon does it
mcurran
no, would you like me to drill down and find out?
I believe it was basically an overall permissions issue where i was running the binary firefox as user while other plugins were set at root ownership
when basically the whole direcory for nightly and java and flashplayer should all be root
i can still just click the .desktop icon and run firefox now without adding a password and the executable is set root.
how do you spell qwight? like that?
or not queit
stallmen
mcurran: im talking about my addon
mcurran
could you please help me out here by re-asking the question? i was not here when you originally explained, i joined the channel afterwards i believe, so I am not aware of your issue.
i'm sure i can help, just copy paste again.

alanjf
?
stallmen
but you told me to
alanjf
who
bb010g
I don't think mcurran meant to copy paste your IRC session.
stallmen
well you can help me find it too
what's that
alanjf
Please don't flood.
mcurran
you could switch your primary search provider to youtube, or reorder them under preferences. i'm not sure if the order matters in firefox though, just ie to my experience
bb010g
(Action) facepalms
stallmen
that's dumb mcurran
mcurran
okay
stallmen
you're not understanding
mcurran
sounds like it would give you exactly what you need
stallmen
cuz what if i want to search linux
and the first link on google isnt youtube
mcurran
you cannot reorder predetermined search results by preference
stallmen
and i set it to youtube
im not???
mcurran
you can reorder the results according to the provider, but thats about it, unless there's some sort of filter addon that i'm not familiar with
stallmen
what provider???
dude you're confusing me
i just want something that shows the links of the google results
_cade
stallmen: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=search+results+in+url+bar
mcurran
Edit > Preferences > Search (left pane) there you go, reorder the search providers to your liking, make google your default, but place youtube above the others to make youtube results come up first when you search from the url bar.
There's your solid answer, cause I'm a solid guy, even after the smartass remarks
         

stallmen
where's the search
mcurran
about:preferences#search
you can then click and drag all the search providers into the order you would like the results ordered
stallmen
I don't have search there
in the left panel
i have general content applications privacy securities sync advanced
mcurran
you should be on search if you type this in the url bar/field: about:preferences#search
let me know if that does nothing.
stallmen
that puts me on the general tab
mcurran
yeah, then you need to add some search providers or update your firefox
there's no Search with a magnifying glass under General in that pane?
stallmen
yeaha i havent updated in a long time
mcurran
that's wierd, and probably your whole issue
I cannot seem to get my GNOME online accounts working because the default browser for some reason is showing the system settings that it does not have cookies enabled when in fact it does.
so i cannot add my facebook account to my online-accounts for gnome-shell integration
:(
stallmen
mcurran: im upgrading my linux system as we speak
mcurran
me too
stallmen
what is ur linux os
mcurran
I'm also hoping/asking a bunch of OP's to remove my lifetime bans from my favorite channels like #remote-exploit, #social-engineer, #aircrack-ng, #kali-linux, and mostly #archlinux
stallmen
dont join #archlinux
trust me
they didnt help me install ubuntu
mcurran
I cannot believe they got mouthy with me in #archlinux, and i say one little thing sarcastically and I'm banned from my favorite channel.
stallmen
i got banned too
mcurran
then i asked why from an online irc client, and he banned me for life, even though i didn't even say anything bad. just that i logged in to see why the hell i was banned instead of scrolling trhough logs for two days.
stallmen
i went in there last week
and said a lot of dumb stuff
and i didnt get banned
a year or two ago
