spaceone: ftp://ftp.mozilla.org is no more, https://ftp still works
spaceone
kbrosnan: yes, i already fetched and read the source :)
kbrosnan
https://dxr.mozilla.org if you want to search the codebase.
spaceone
jeah, i found the files i need i guess. netwwerk/cookie/*.cpp
VectorX
hi, is there a way i can make my browser a set size, ie 1000 wide 1000 height for instance ?
spaceone
yes
VectorX
like a command i can run that will make it exactly that size
spaceone
install web developer addon
maybe the new console is able to do this. too
VectorX
its already on there right
         

spaceone
if you have got the addon you can click on resize ’ resize window in the toolbar
Han
Does anyone know if I can change the internal webcam and mic to the external webcam for firefox talk?
VectorX
spaceone i got the default FF developer tools but cant find the reszie
spaceone
VectorX: no, i mean the addon 'web developer'
VectorX
ic
i see it now
thanks
was also trying to run this from the console but guess it doesnt work anymore, https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/resizeTo
spaceone
VectorX: you can open the ff developer tools by right click ’ inspect element
then there is on the right side a button "responsive view"
VectorX
right that does have that option too
spaceone
this is able to resize the window, too
b0at
the developer toolbar might have this.
shift + f2, different from the regular console
yep, "resize to"

i have a webpage and i have 3 divs that contain imgs
when i load the page using chrome, the imgs appear, but when i load them using firefox they dont show
i added :before to the css name and the img displayed but wasnt contained in the div
anyone know why im experiencing this?
b0at
floats? can't tell without code. although this is more of a #css or #html thing
EllisTAA
ill ask those channels
AlexPortable
Why is my pc having problems with 4k youtube video on fulscreen? Runs fine on chrome
yarddog

Honestly, I'm still worried about that addon signing requirement.
I have this feeling a bunch of my addons will likely be blocked.
b0at
if you have any that show warnings now, those aren't yet signed, yes
MikeRL
And what if I want to use regular Firefox? I use the development version of PDF.js with it. Seems to work much better than the integrated one.
b0at
they are supposed to release an unbranded version without signing enforcement.
         

MikeRL
Well, what do you think about that? Will there be one for Android? And what about the one bundled with Ubuntu?
Well, IMO it kind of sucks that we have to use an unbranded version to avoid it.
b0at
no idea about android. linux packagers will probably offer both, i dunno.
MikeRL
I will wind up missing the logo and who knows what else?
Will the unbranded one at least have a decent logo? And be usable enough?
b0at
it'll have the same branding differences as iceweasel/icecat and palemoon, afaik
MikeRL
But what about Ubuntu? Will they have to go unbranded to avoid that?
And will there be unbranded Android builds?
rctgamer3
MikeRL:signing requirement isn't due for 41
MikeRL
When is it due?
rctgamer3
44
MikeRL
I think more time may be needed.
Good.
It will take time. Last time I checked, it was due sooner.
rctgamer3
Well, duh, 41 /is/ unreasonable with 800 add-ons in the queue
MikeRL
I had a feeling there would be a massive pileup.
rctgamer3
at least we noticed the benefits of signing this week - the first malware was blocked
MikeRL
I somehow rarely if ever get malware. Haven't had any on my machines in countless years.
Do most people get malware often on their computers? Even technically inclined people?
I haven't seen any in so long I cannot remember.
That's what I get, I suppose, for learning Linux five or so years back, and improving my security.
b0at
it's easy on other platforms if you aren't installing stuff, generally, now that their defaults are a little more reasonable.
MikeRL
What do you mean easier if they've improved?
Don't you mean the default browsers and security settings suck less, therefore on newer platforms, malware is becoming rarer?
b0at
i mean that platforms that don't traditionally have secure defaults (namely, windows and mac os) now have pretty reasonable defaults, and the vectors are turning to other low-hanging fruit like malicious adware and weak router passwords to mitm traffic.
which by the way is why extension signing is ultimately a good thing, with untrustworthy intermediaries all over the place.
MikeRL
My own father is a dumbass with avoiding crapware. I told him to read and pace himself through installers. He races through them and gets nasty addons and crap in IE and Firefox. He got pissed at me for installing updates, patching the hosts file, and updating Flash and blamed the crashes on me.
His wife blames me as well.
hypech
lol
MikeRL
I told him that if he actually paid attention to the sh*t he raced past, he woulnd't have so much malware. Pus it was a five year old Windows 7 install/
I'm pissed at them anyhow.
I got yelled at for attempting to secure and fix THEIR fu*kups that THEY blamed on me.
And then they go back to using IE and I told them to stick with Firefox.
I cannot wait for all the malicious extensions to get upgraded from ActiveSex controls and BHOs to the new Windoze 10 Edge malware platform. Hopefully MS security methods will fail.
Then I'll have my revenge.
His wife installed Clean Master on her phone and trusts it, but doesn't trust me.
The .NET framework fu*ked up on his five year old install and I got yelled at for it. Really?
Is it even likely that it's my fault that .NET messed up? IE11 was messing up as well.
I should know this, but it'd help to get someone else's opinion when your entire family likes to put down bullsh*t on you.
For example, I did put a lot of non-malicious software on his computer. He claims it slowed everything down. But most of it was stuff like GIMP and Sumatra PDF.
Utilities, not malware. And Libreoffice.
So, could that have caused issues?
I doubt it, but could some of it been my fault?
b0at
libreoffice has an option for a startup thingy that might seem to slow something down
MikeRL
I disabled most of that.
But does Windows slow down just with a bunch of programs without them autostarting?
Linux doesn't.
I made sure crap wouldn't autostart. But why would .NET applications crash and IE upgrades fail to install?
My fault or not?
b0at
in theory there are limits to the registry. in practice, you won't have a problem with at least a couple gigs of memory.
MikeRL
He had enough specs. But what would cause .NET errors like that?
I tried a bunch of repair tools for 7.
They made things even worse.
b0at
yeah, .net has caused itself problems without me touching it. i wouldn't blame a person on that.
MikeRL
As in tools MS published.
IE11 messed up as well.
I mean, I myself cannot seem to keep a Windows install over six months to a year without needing a reformat.
Is that normal? Linux doesn't fu*k up that badly whatsoever.
I can't seem to get Windows to behave. I had serious issues with 8 and 8.1 made them worse. Often, Store apps would just fail to update with no solution in sight without a reformat.
b0at
i've windows installs that i mean to replace but they keep chugging along for like seven years until the hardware breaks enough to warrant a complete replacement.
