so, taking a look out there at tab manager extensions, it seems that there is none with no 1 star review because of tab loose
luckily, native tab groups do the job, but something a little more sophisticate would be nice
does anyone know any tab manager extension that is not session manager / onetab?
my issue was with onetab, I lost everything, and also session manager has reviews that tell it's not continued anymore, and some people argue about losing their tabs
ok I answer myself: https://addons.mozilla.org/es/firefox/addon/tab-groups-helper/
it's a bit intrusive, but well
terminal_echo
firefox won't let me install any addons and i get error: because signing could not be verified
b0at
from addons.mozilla.org?
terminal_echo
yeah
i'm on fedora
updated firefox
i deleted the META-INF (which makes it unsigned)
and it worked...
weird
b0at
could be a missing certificate, but i thought all the ones mozilla used were internally pinned...
terminal_echo
unless the NSA
b0at
in that case, you just installed something other than mozilla intended
terminal_echo
aka NSA
b0at
in any case, this describes the issue with a specific cause: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=502606
i don't know how you'd get better diagnostics
         

terminal_echo
it was Ghostery
this isn't like a random extension
did the same thing for adblock

how to make a direct link to one of the configs in about:config, so when I click on that link the config tuggles its state?
specifically for this one:
les its state?
browser.display.use_document_colors;false
I want to enter a link in address bar that directly refers to this, so it is easier for me to change it

Any suggestions as to why Firefox on (K)ubuntu (or the gtk theme/library) is magnifying all its user interface elements (inc. with a new profile), whereas Chromium (using the system settings) is rendered at normal DPI (see http://imgur.com/x4yuvZb) ?

mohammad-ghasemi did someone answer me when I was away?

hello, i'm trying to understand how some people can use firefox without the URL Bar, how do i enter an specific URL ? example: http://i.imgur.com/3DANouj.jpg
wodim
ctrl+l ?
I never use the URL bar.
I just hit Command+L.
Well I mean, I dont click it.
Nindustries
I would miss bookmarks etc
but damn it looks cool
specing
wodim: pentadactyl/vimperator
body
when i click command L or ctrl+c , nothing happens ?
specing
body: ^
wodim
specing, I havent used Firefox for years. But I guess that works.
body
no, it isn't just tryed it out now
wodim
I never told you to use Ctrl+C.
Try Ctrl+L.
Command+L if you are on a Mac, which I guess you are not.
body
specing: pentadactyl drops the support for the newer versions of firefox right ?
wodim , yes my bad, i mean i've tryed ctrl+L , but still
specing
body: you need to fetch it from git iirc
body
specing: can you please help me out to find it ? because i'm not sure which one it's the main one, when i'm searching for it
i get more versions from diff people
specing
body: *shrug*, distro stable version of firefox always lags enough so that this is not a problem
body
specing: so you mean, i can get any?
specing
body: I don't know, it has never been a problem for me
body: and if you are on your distro's stable, it shouldn't be a problem for you either
         

body
specing: oh, i see, ok anywho thank you for help :)
specing: oh well, i've got the latest firefox
specing
thats the problem :)

Hi, what is foryou the top 5 must have add-ons ?
wodim
AdBlock, AdBlock, AdBlock, AdBlock and AdBlock.
Rest are not really mandatory.
specing
Tealyf: Disconnect, prevents google/facecrap/... from tracking you
Tealyf: Pentadactyl, makes the interface much more saner
Tealyf: Tree Style Tabs, stacks tabs vertically in a hierarchy
Tealyf: noscript, allows you to whitelist javascript
Tealyf: https-everywhere, self-explanatory, except it is rarely everywhere
Tealyf: libreJS, something something only free javascript
really, firefox is quite useless / dangerous without the first 5
I use an ad-blocking proxy so adblock is not necessary for me
Tealyf
wodim: ^^
specing: I'm glad to see that I have already few of them ^:)
specing
Tealyf: I'm always looking for more
Tealyf
yeah me too
specing
I should also put firefox into a virtual machine
but no time right now for that
wodim
You might want to visit a psychiatrist.
specing
wodim: firefox is several million lines of code which were proven time and time again to be fairly insecure
wodim
And so is your OS, whatever it is.
specing
nope
Tealyf
(I think I have started a war :/ )
specing
there is no war really, wodim just wants to point out how little he/she/it knows about computers
and/or security
wodim
^
It might be that, but it could also be that you are paranoid and/or misinformed.
Tealyf
I like the "it"
specing
Tealyf: there really are "its". People that have no sex (I'm not kidding)
Tealyf
specing: yeah I know
I think the best way to avoid a maximum troubles is to stop being on internet
specing
no way to do that in this day and age, heh
wodim
People that have no sex?
I call those eunuchs.
Tealyf
so.... what I am doing here again ? *weirdoooo i am*
specing
especially not for a computer scientist
Tealyf
computer scientist are "more" reasonnable
-n
i think
specing
?
Tealyf
don't pay attention, i writing sh*t... :s
