firefox always had an unusual fetish for using the disk all the time
solutions include private browsing as was mentioned and ~/.mozilla on tmpfs with periodic rsync runs
running it under libeatmydata could be benefitial too
while simultaneously increasing kernel write-flush to an hour
dirty timeout or what is it called again

b0at: okay thanks for your answer. and sorry for late reply.

hmm I compiled the latest firefox from source. Under Applications, there is no entry for magnet-links though.
b0at
i remember adding it once
prometheanfire
so, on linux I had to set this value in about config to stop crashing in ff-40
layers.offmainthreadcomposition.enabled;false
40.0.2 specifically
b0at
shevy: if you don't get a prompt to choose a handler, set network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet to true in about:config and it should enable that.

ok
that worked \o/
yumbox
is it possible to run firefox with gtk3 and wayland support?
I'm using firefox-43.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64
         

b0at
some distros package it, like fedora, i think
yumbox
I downloaded the elm build "firefox-43.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64"
I'm on arch linux though.
b0at
there's "firefox-gtk3" in the aur
yumbox
yeah, but thats version 40
and that's a compiled version
don't have time to compile :/

yumbox: firefox dev edition is gtk3
it was only switched on by default in 42

Why is one Chrome tab using 592MB of RAM and the rest are using incremental amounts all the way down to 36MB using 83% of 16GB?
b0at
ask in a chrome channel
yumbox
auscompgeek: do you know where i can get a built .tar.gz for that?
auscompgeek
yumbox: in the same place(s) as it always has been: https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/developer/ or https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/channel/
yumbox
auscompgeek: yeah, but that's only ver 42
auscompgeek
dev edition *is* 42
yumbox
ah, oaky
okay*
it does seem to be using gtk3 indeed

hello
is there a reason i can't navigate with lftp on ftp.mozilla.org?
i get permission denied when i try to go to /pub/*anything*/
i can access it with my browser though, but i need to access it with an ftp client
auscompgeek
YouB: on ftp ftp.mozilla.org: 230-The contents of ftp://ftp.mozilla.org has moved to http://archive.mozilla.org
Cork
YouB, auscompgeek: it is actually a bit more complicated then that
ftp.mozilla.org has been depricated for a few weeks
it is gone
the reason for this is that they are moving the storage over to ec2
auscompgeek
oh wow I've been really out of the loop
I should probably read my mailing list emails
Cork
theres been blog posts about it, and information polls about what ppl use ftp.mozilla.org for and so on
auscompgeek: https://ftangftang.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/changes-coming-to-ftp-mozilla-org/
there is a bugzilla bug about it too, but i fail to find it right now
ah, there we go http://atlee.ca/blog/posts/releng-retrospective-q1-2015.html
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1100624
anddam
Does "Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page" prevent th reload or is it just warning me?
YouB
ok thanks
"permission denied ftp mozilla" on google didn't help me
         

Cork
anddam: it pauses the execution and lets you pick
anddam: though note it only handles http header location headers
there is a long list of other ways to redirect it doesn't catch

So FireFox Hello now can share "Windows" but not the whole desktop? Is that correct?

I just installed adblock addon, on linux; I have a question though, where can I find the .xpi locally? I'd like to make a backup so I can install all my addons on my laptop as well (who is usually offline but sometimes online too, through wlan then)
I think I found it
extensions/{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}.xpi
had a weird hashed name, but that was adblock actually
Peng
Extension IDs used to always be GUIDs or UUIDs
Nowadays they can be more human-friendly
shevy
yeah that was a bit confusing
the local path is: 195u1f9q.default/extensions/{d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d}.xpi
so I seem to have dual the weirdness numbers - once in my profile, and then also in the name of the .xpi itself :)

I bet you all know what I'm going to ask. How do I enable an unsigned addon? I'm building my own pentadactyls because they aren't releasing regularly. I can't find any "enable" or "ignore" button
Is there a solution to this that doesn't require a rebuild of firefox?
b0at
i can install keyconfig from mozilla.dorando.at still in the stable branch, and it appears as "could not be verified", but works
so i don't think they've turned on signing enforcement yet
unless there's some exception for it
Score_Under
I am 100% sure it's disabled. fetching a screenshot now
http://a.uguu.se/lddlwq.png
my 3g thing is playing up, sorry it took so long to upload
is there any way to turn the extension back on? should I roll back firefox to a working version?
b0at
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/pentadactyl/JVeEBpIwTjc mentions the pref xpinstall.signatures.required to toggle to turn that off
(from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Addons/Extension_Signing )
Score_Under
I'll try that, thanks
http://a.uguu.se/sixjxg.png
seems to have been set to false already
b0at
hm...
which is actually what i'd expect
but i don't know why it disables it
Score_Under
the official answer I found was something like "pester the developer to sign the extension" but from a practical perspective I doubt that's possible given the pentadactyl devs' release habits. from a user perspective it is frustrating that mozilla has decided to take more power from the user in this way - this means I can neither use development builds of firefox extensions nor develop my own
b0at
the thing is, there's supposed to be another build with all this disabled when enforcement reaches stable
actually, when 42 reaches beta, they say
i assume that's for all platforms
Score_Under
at the moment I'm using the arch package. its package spec doesn't seem to have any options specifically enabling this behaviour
it's version 40.0.2
b0at
hm, it's not supposed to enforce in version 40 from everything i've read
try #firefox on irc.mozilla.org -- note your version and show them that first screenshot
and fwiw, on windows v40.0.2 it does work :/
Score_Under
I always confuse /server and /connect :(
milk_base
why are the element inspectors exactly the same in FF and chrome?
shevy
not sure, might be built upon an official specification, perhaps from w3c
b0at
aardvark did the overlay transparency first, that was a firefox extension. firebug had the treeview panel inspection first, i think. that was also a firefox extension.
since the time those were new, the interfaces have converged quite a bit because the teams cooperate somewhat. at least in terms of new interfaces.
