varaindemian
yt videos only in 360p resolution. I am using arch and firefox
b0at
varaindemian: do you have gstreamer and all the gst-plugins-* packages installed? that seems to work for me on arch.
the ones with version 1.x https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=gst-plugins-&maintainer=&flagged=
varaindemian
b0at: I only installed firefox package
b0at
also this links to explanations of the packages: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GStreamer
varaindemian
thank you
b0at
and you can go to about:buildconfig in firefox to verify it was built with gstreamer 1.0 which means the 1.x packages are the right ones
and of course https://www.youtube.com/html5 to quickly see what should work
varaindemian
b0at: it supports only HTMLVideoElement and WebM VP8
I ll install those packages
         

b0at
you may have to toggle to "true" "media.mediasource.enabled" in about:config
varaindemian
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=gst-plugins-&maintainer=&flagged=
b0at: you mean all of those for x86_64 (ugly, good, base-libs, base and bad) ?
b0at
probably. or it may be enough just to install a libav or ffmped plugin. but i just installed them all.
which i guess is part of one of those packages. i'm not sure.
varaindemian
I see
kbrosnan
mse is not enabled on linux atm
varaindemian
b0at: well, installed them all and nothing changed. Do I need to restart?
b0at
you may need to restart firefox and set the media.mediasource.enabled to true (for me, gstreamer.enabled was already true)
varaindemian
b0at: enableing media.mediasource.webm solved it
b0at
ok, cool

How often are firefox releases generally made? I've tried to look on wikipedia's release history page, but it's pretty busy and a bit confusing
Is it arbitrary or does it follow a schedule?
b0at
the major-version releases are all on a fixed time table now, i think
https://wiki.mozilla.org/RapidRelease/Calendar#Future_branch_dates
srg
b0at: Thanks!

XXCoder

Hi, why does firefox disable javascript when connected thru ssl?
b0at
it doesn't
SimbaLion`
it does, I've got a social login thing on my blog that lets me login using google, and when I connect thru ssl it disables the link, I have to click a thing in firefox and select 'disable protection for now' to make the link work
"Firefox is blocking content on this page."
"some unencrypted elements on this website have been blocked."
do I have to live with this?

SimbaLion`
thank you! :)
b0at
the warning won't go away because it's a bad idea to mix secure and insecure resources. this is the least annoying of firefox's last few security changes.
it's possible that you could just include the other resources as like src="//google.com/..." to match your page's http/https scheme, also. that's a handy trick.

Firefox is currently using 400% CPU usage and it isn't going down. Before I restart the browser, is there some about: page I could open to see why it's using so much?
b0at
not for cpu usage that i know of (about:about lists them), but about:memory might give a clue
haasn
Ah. Well, I captured a memory dump before restarting in case anybody cares and/or can do anything with it https://0x0.st/sFX.gz
thufir
is this safe: putting untrusted data in <input type="textfield" value="{untrusted_data}"/>, as long as i replace all " with "e; in the untrusted data? or do i have to worry about other characters as well? can javascript: work in there? etc
XXCoder
haasn: irc.mozella.org may be better server for that
b0at
thufir: the standard is type="text", and you should consult the html spec's definition of "character data" to see which characters are disallowed
i think that's what it's called
thufir
awesome, thanks for the pointer
b0at
thufir
nice!
wow, that is a really nice document, exactly what I need

Hi, my browser.search.defaultenginename sometimes changes, last time it was "Bing", I reset to Google, this time it is Amazon, I need to reset to Google again. How could change that, some site scripts?
b0at
options -> search, default search engine, i guess
TheFran

Hi, is there a way to have to different profiles open at the same time in Firefox (using Fedora)?
I have created the profiles, but I seem to only be able to use one at a time.
Got it... firefox -no-remote -P "[profile_name]". Thanks anyways.

b0at: So, I got the symptom of requiring Flash player all of a sudden for a video I was already watching without it again, but Fx did not yet crash
b0at: So, is there something I should do now? Should I tag the crash report with something if it does?
b0at
a plugin placeholder just popped up? weird
i guess so. this is well beyond me.
Philias
Yeah. If I remember correctly, the video stops playing, the site reloads and I get that Flash placeholder (Flash is disabled)
But I didnt pay attention in that moment this time, I only noticed it when I switched back to it
Reloading the video made it go away (I think this didnt really work often before)
specing
Is it possible to disable the built-in pdf reader completely?
b0at
specing: go to about:config?filter=pdfjs.disabled and toggle it to true
specing
because one site seemed to force it even though I have open in external viewer as default
b0at: yay
b0at: nope, still opened...
b0at
i just get it downloading. maybe it's embedding a viewer on the page.
