tanath: so there is no way to have this functionality on firefox for android?
tanath
my stock browser lets me disable js, most other browsers don't. extension support was dropped from opera. firefox extension support isn't good and doesn't let you disable js...
i really haven't found a great solution
Fahrradkette
hmm
tanath
i've just minimized my browsing on mobile

what about building "normal" firefox for ARM and have its OS calls redirected to android OS calls? I mean the way wine works
auscompgeek
... you know, NoScript for Android *does* exist
no need to find an "equivalent"
tanath
i can't believe i forgot that. i remember thinking extension support for firefox on android is terrible though

Is the plan still to remove the about:config option for using non-signed extensions in 41? It still seems to be in 41 beta.
nedviles
Hai!
Is Nightly stable?
help!

there isn't a attribute or tag to identify a element in fullscreen, isn't it?
*via css
never mind

Hi guys, anyone got an idea of *TOTALL* removing Firefox and all its remnants? I have a problem where it won't start anymore. When I go to Profile Manager and create a new one it will start *ONCE*. Tried re-installing and deleting all "AppData" folders several times. Lots of re booting, nothing helps. Would appreciate any pointers as it's driving me nuts that I don't have a proper browser now! :(

hi there, could someone tell my why or in which situation would firefox compile with or use cython?

JD-Robbs: have you tried reinstalling firefox?
JD-Robbs
RIght, cleared everything one more time, then did a restart and downgraded to 40.0. So looks like something is wrong with 40.0.3 in my case.
auscompgeek: yes, several times (like I wrote)
auscompgeek
oh, right
JD-Robbs
I uninstalled FF and then deleted all AppData/Program folders. After re-installing 40.0.3 (and restarting) it will start-up once and then not come-up anymore
ONly solution was:
"firefox -P" then delete the profile and create a new one. Then it would start up - again, only ONE time.
Now I need to make it not update automatically so this doesn't happen again until it's fixed at some point. Already lost two hours today :(
auscompgeek
does this happen with 40.0.1 or 40.0.2?
JD-Robbs
Like I wrote - 40.0.3
:)
auscompgeek
you've only mentioned 40.0 and 40.0.3, not 40.0.1 or 40.0.2
JD-Robbs
Ah got your question now - apologies.
No, I now went straight back to 40 as I remembered that update and there were no issues.
omfg
it started again. there must be a racing condition or something
dafuq :(
And I've only just come back to FF a few weeks ago :-/
Starting, killing, starting, killing, starting makes it run. Or got to write a batch script for that...
spaceone
hi
FF disabled all my unsigned add-ons
how to ignore the unsigned thing?
brainwash
spaceone: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Addons/Extension_Signing
spaceone
brainwash: this doesnt clearly answer my question
xpinstall.signatures.required
okay...
me ranting: f*** you FF devs... everything would have been fine if that would have been a button there and no fu*king autoupdate which change that all my addons are broken on the fly
WTF...
xpinstall.signatures.required is already false
no addon is workling anymore but that config variable is set properly
brainwash
spaceone: which firefox version?
spaceone
40.0.02
b0at
extension signing isn't enforced yet. i'm using an unsigned extension without trouble in 40.0.3
brainwash
yeah, I'm a bit confused here too
it should work just fine as of now
b0at
maybe the unsigned warning shows for extensions disabled for other reasons.
tanath
also on 40.0.3 and i just get a warning for unsigned extensions
         

brainwash
spaceone: can you name the affected extensions?
tanath
which is good, 'cause i'd be kinda screwed without pentadactyl
specing
I, for one, view signing as a good thing
tanath: you have pentadactyl on 40?
tanath
of course
spaceone
brainwash: noscript, tree style tab, adblock plus, stylish
specing
tanath: I went from 32.8 to 38.2 and then immidiately back because no pentadactyl
brainwash
specing: once people get used to it
specing
tanath: where did you get it?
did you compile it yourself?
tanath
specing, i've been on nightlies for a year or two. always works
spaceone
I'll upgrade to FF 40.0.3 (it is already available in archlinux)
brainwash
you really should do that :)
tanath
http://5digits.org/nightly/pentadactyl-latest.xpi
i consider security to be too important to not keep to latest version, and pentadactyl is one of the main things keeping me on firefox, so..
specing
is it signed?
tanath
no
specing
well...
tanath
one of the ones i get a warning for
specing
so anyone could MITM you and put a compromised dactyl xpi
tanath
spaceone, you might want to replace adblock plus with ublock/ublock origin
specing
Is there a secure method of obtaining pentadactyl for recent firefox?
tanath
specing, so compile it yourself.
instructions on the site
specing
tanath: that requires me to do an audit >_>
brainwash
vimperator?
specing
I have no time right now for audits
spaceone
tanath: i'll have a look
tanath
vimperator doesn't compare to pentadactyl
brainwash
:/
specing
yes, it does not
tanath
certain things about it i don't like
specing
I tried using vimperator, but just ragequit
tanath
lol
brainwash
really?
well, I only know vimperator
specing
ff became even more unusable with it enabled
tanath
pent has more features and works better and more intuitive
specing
clicking buttons on sites didn't work anymore
tanath
esp if you know vim
brainwash
I see
but there is no one to properly maintain pentadactyl?
tanath
then where do developments come from?
