hello. has the autoconfig option for for disabling https://wiki.mozilla.org/Addons/Extension_Signing been announced yet?
alex_mayorga
tanderson: You meant to say about:config?
tanderson: " Firefox 41: Firefox will have a preference that allows signature enforcement to be disabled (xpinstall.signatures.required in about:config)."
tanderson
alex_mayorga: I mean the configure level option, for when you want to build your own binary

tanderson
kbrosnan: thanks; and the plan is that that will still work in 43+ ?
kbrosnan
i don't know, though I suspect so as there needs to be a way for Moz to build the binaries
that allow unsigned extensions
tanderson
sure. It's also promising that that doesn't trigger the en_US locale. great!
kbrosnan
the defualt build is en_US
localizing requires pulling the l10n repo
tanderson
yes I know, but there was some detail about the unbranded versions of FF(with a setting to allow disabling of the signing) only being available in en_US
(this is for a linux distro so we obviously want to allow people to use various locales)
         

kbrosnan
sure there is no reason for it to be hardcoded to en_US it is just a matter of the cost of nearly 300 - 500 builds that a fully localized build creates as part of the normal build process
tanderson
right. thanks for the info and help

hi
mozilla is supposed to come out with free ssl certs next month, right?
PlasmaStar
Wtf does the "Refresh FireFox" option do
b0at
PlasmaStar: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings#w_what-does-the-refresh-feature-do
PlasmaStar
That is not a very descriptive name for a very intrusive button...
b0at
indeed
gut
there's a confirmation before it does anything
nate
I get the feeling they were trying to play off the familiarity of Windows users, Windows 8 and up have a "Refresh windows" that does a similar thing

ok somebody here has HAD to have experienced UBER LAG on yosemite. i'm on a mac pro 5,1 did fresh install w/ time machine backup
this lag is so bad it has to be some sort of bug or suboptimal code

anyone find the new firefox slow with 130-150 tabs open? it was fast around versions 11 to 23 with 300 tabs open with >3GB ram usage, then it got slow for a few versions after, then was a little better for a few versions after that, and now back to slow

Is there a way to have FF automatically set profile based on domain? e.g. if I visit facebook.com I use profile A and all other sites use profile B
SoItBegins
I need some help getting e10s working& every tab crashes (repeatedly) upon attempting to turn e10s on.
(Aurora 42.0a2, Mac OS X 10.6)

hi
Cork
freezway: no, profiles are loaded before firefox starts, you can't switch profile while it's running
SoItBegins: open about:crashes and copy the id of the first possibly second crash report
SoItBegins
Cork
SoItBegins: you're using noscript?
SoItBegins
I am, yes.
*Cork:
Cork
SoItBegins: that is the problem
noscript isn't compatible with e10n yet
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1058542
so if you want to try e10n, disable noscript and restart firefox
(this is why i don't run e10n my self)
SoItBegins: also you're explicit problem: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1166927
         

SoItBegins
Yep, that was also me.
This was back when e10s wasn't enabled by default.
Cork
"According to the crash stat info v2.6.9.22 of NoScript and OS X only so far."
ya, you can disable e10n
about:config?filter=remote
you want browser.tabs.remote.autostart, .1 and .2 = false
SoItBegins
Remote tabs? What?
Right now I just have 'Use Multiprocess Firefox' turned off in the preferences.
Cork
ah, they have given it a perference option :)
forgot that
SoItBegins: that option toggles that about:config value
SoItBegins
Gotcha.
Do you know if HTTPS Everywhere is compatible yet?
Cork
SoItBegins
:D
I did not know that existed.
Cork
i know https eveerywhere has had problems
not sure if they are all fixed though
never used it my self
"HTTPS-Everywhere (EFF) compatible"
Fudge
hi there seems to be an ongoing prolem with firefox wanting to remember a password on www.westpac.com.au sign in link, type in a customer number and try with the virtual keyboard to see the behaviour described
Cork
Fudge: by problem you mean firefox asking if you want to save it?
or that it fails doing it?
SoItBegins
Aw man, Ghostery's not compatible with e10s yet?
Cork
nope, not that i care though, it is a nagging peace of sh*t
just load a privacy filter in abp/ublock
and it will do the same thing, without all the nagging
SoItBegins
. . . [1] Nagging? I have the alert bubble turned off.
[2] No thank you, I like the way they have the toggle panel.
Cork
last i tested ghostery it didn't have an option to disable the "new version has be updated go here to see what changed"
SoItBegins
It does!
Cork
that it inserted in every page you visit breaking things...
it might now days... but it didn't
SoItBegins
Advanced options, "Notify me of new elements."
Cork
anyway i don't see a reason to have that extension when what i already have can do the job
the isn't what i talked about
SoItBegins
Fair enough. We shall agree to disagree. : )
Cork
new elements was possible to disable
SoItBegins
"Allow Ghostery to show messages in my browser related to product features, updates, and promotions"
Cork
but not the thing about when the extension updated
SoItBegins
You can disable that too
Anyway, we're getting off topic.
Daerist
Yoooop
Fudge
yes every time you click a letter/number
Cork: it's upstream though happens on Windows as well I would have thought a banking session would not prompt to save passwords
Cork
Fudge: that is up to the bank
Fudge: all firefox does is 1) checks for a password field, 2) check if there is a text field infront of the password field
3) if both found take the password field as password and the text field infront of it as username
4) ask the user if it wants to save those
though sites has tended to abuse the option to disable it, so browsers are choosing to ignore the option in some cases (autocomplere="off")
this is slowly becoming cross browsers so sites will have to adapt
Fudge
oh thanks mate I wasn't aware.
