Although I check "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" to download using downthemall, it is not made the default action. Why
XXCoder
HMM I may have idea why firefox bookmarks scroll up sometimes
the up button may be stuck on "mouse over mode"
so it keeps scrolling
will test it once it happens again

Good night. Is there a way to make Firefox refresh miniatures I have on my new tab page at the moment on request?
I guess not.

Is there any SERVO browser out yet?
b0at
Uller: as far as i can tell, there's nothing packaged. but there's enough to test on, if you're curious and adventurous, judging by the occasional screenshot: http://blog.servo.org/2015/05/28/twis-33/
they implemented cookies in may. that should show how green the project still is.
XXCoder
servo is new firefox based browser or?
b0at
it's a new rendering engine project written in mozilla's Rust language
lots of interesting modularizing in page rendering and stuff
XXCoder

hopefully it means less memory used

hello cani ask something inusual, the main title is renamed by about:config option i set up a day, i want just rename when opening a new firefox window, the problem is the new windows is labelled same as earlier windows, not just want to be sure they are not the approximatively same name but to be sure i can retrieve at least the main windows to open external url in appropriate windows
i want rename a new windows not the same as mai windows(not tab title for exemple or just for new windows) or use a unique title for main windows

thank in advance

Anyone know a xpath addon that integrates well with the standard dev bar instead of firebug?

Q: can more than 1 people connect to my hello session via the web? i only have two computers and no friends so i can't see for my self
b0at
afaik "hello" only does one-on-one
tfirg_
yes thats what i gathered but now with the new social network feature it seems to imply that more can connect
why else would you advertise your hello session on a social network if its just one-on-one
got to say though, i like hello a lot its nice and clean
b0at
this says it does screen sharing now and has some integration with pocket: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2015/06/02/firefox-puts-you-in-control-of-your-online-life/
tfirg_
yes screen sharing works very nicely

I recently reset my windows pc and sync is failing to restore my browsing history and passwords. Is there any way I can get them back?
tfirg_
unlike google hangouts where it doesnt work for me with ratpoison window manager
closingin
sachingoel0101, you already checked the checkboxes in the settings
?
         

sachingoel0101
@closingin, yes.
closingin
What happens when you sync ?
sachingoel0101
Nothing at all. It has actuall started syncing this new data as I can see when I sign in to sync on my android device.
Does it hapen that the sync data is deleted?

Resetting password removes all data? That doesn't make sense. Who remembers password to a service you so rarely need to sign in to!
Anyway I could retrieve it?
closingin
No, why ?
Well i remember it, and i have a slightly different password for every service i sign up to.
sachingoel0101
It says on a link I followed to that resetting the password will erase all data. You should display a warning when the user tries to reset the password.
Anyway. Thanks for your help.
closingin
sachingoel0101, i mean no, resetting password doesn't remove your data
sachingoel0101
closingin
Oh my bad.
Sorry, misread.
I thought you were speaking about another password.
Well it's obvious that resetting a sync password removes your data, as all of it is encrypted with a key generated with your password
sachingoel0101
Yeah. I thought so. Maybe I should've kept a sync of the sync somewhere.
closingin
You should atleast have read the documentation :)
But yeah, keeping a backup is always a good idea.
sachingoel0101
Haha. Fair enough.
It's kinda expected of people to read the documentation of a browser.
If I could recover my local Firefox folder from the previous installation, can I recover the history and bookmarks at least?
The one which is kept in AppData on windows.
closingin
sure
sachingoel0101
Okay. I'll visit here again if I can somehow restore that from my crashed hard drive. :)
thanks

Go to %AppData%/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles
And copy the folder with [someletters].default
sachingoel0101
Ah. Okay.
And paste it in the current profiles? Then I imagine it is a matter of exchanging data across the two profiles?
closingin
yep
Well
You have a profiles.ini which list your profiles
When you have copied back the folder, paste it in the same folder in your working machine
Edit the profiles.ini (which is in %AppData%/Mozilla/Firefox/) and add a line for yours
sachingoel0101
Ah. Got it. I'll try that.
closingin
Good luck.

I've got a local domain, however, when I browse to http://mail, it says the certificate is invalid, it is only valid for mail.corp.domain.com. How can i configure firefox to auto append the corp.domain.com part?
