Hi. I'm using firefox nightly on debian sid. I'm trying to get the site http://www.dota2.com/watch/ working when you click on one of the games. It's a mediasource issue, but I can't seem to get the right about:config options. Any suggestions?

hey guys... why is Thunderbird complaining that my inbox is full? is there a limit to the size of how many e-mails I can have?
ah, had to move to another folder and compact... there's a 4GB limit or something?

ESphynx: have you tried asking in #thunderbird at Mozilla IRC?
ESphynx
xangua: I have not but I have answered myself :) thanks.

Oh was a 4GB file? Ok

Hi, does Firefox Sync also synchronize local addons? I have different builts of Firefox with their own addons. Now enabling sync installed an incompatible addon on a FF instance.

Hi. I have a very strange problem: My notebook has internet (ip, dns and "ping www.av.com" works fine). But firefox tells me: Firefox can't find the server at www.av.com. first nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf is 8.8.8.8, which is pingable and responds via "dig", all other programs can use internet. Just not firefox. No special network settings in firefox. And most of all: Since I posted the last time here : I created a new vanilla profil
Can I debug any further or do I post a bug report ?
(also it is a fairly recent install, so I really think everything around firefox should be in perfect shape and order)
Once I restart firefox, network is back. The problem is with DNS resolution, because pointing FF to an IP works as expected !

Hello. I've noticed recently that Firefox displays the letters "fi" strangely. Here are a few examples: http://i.imgur.com/8mFjCVK.png?1 http://i.imgur.com/b5OHNC5.png?1
Anyone encountered this before?

gamma: that's called a ligature, a separate glyph representing the two letters. i've seen the bug before, but no idea what causes it.
maybe search bugzilla.mozilla.org for mentions of "ligature"
hio
firefox is great and all but it doesnt look like it's from 2015 TO BE HONEST

How can I have thumbnail previews in the File Picker dialog?
cbreak
If I go to http://[2a00:1450:400a:807::1011%en0]/ in firefox it goes to duckduckgo, but if I remove the %en0 interface specifier it goes to google... why?

FIREFOX UI IS SO 2003
it needs to look COOL
cbreak
hio: it's less crappy if you use addons
I can't use firefox without ClassicThemeRestorer
especially on windows it's negatively unbearable
(without that :)
         

Qantourisc
hio: NO PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE UI AGAIN
fix speed, memory leaks, bloat first :p
itmo
cbreak
it'd be nice if Firefox would bundle ClassicThemeRestorer
such an essential plugin shouldn't be external
they could rip out some of the pointless crap instead, like apps support
hio
Qantorisc: UH but I WANT a new ui
cbreak: UGH i have like 20 toolbar buttons right now
hexhaxtron
Qantourisc, can you help?
Qantourisc
hmmm ?
thumbnails ?
hexhaxtron
Qantourisc, I need to change the File Picker to something with previews.
Yes.
Qantourisc

is there any instructions on building firefox for PowerPC Linux?
xangua
firefox is not even supported anymore in powerpc
jjholt
ok thanks, I'll have to see when it was dropped
xangua
like 5 years ago┬┐
don't really know but it has been a long time, yes
jjholt
guess I'll have to try and build the debian fork seems they kept the powerpc code and seems based on 31.8ESR
xangua
debian much supports a lot of arqutectures
