hi. i have an image created in JS and I set the src to an MJPEG, and at some interval, I draw the image onto a canvas. It works perfect in Chrome, but in Firefox the it keeps drawing the same frame over and over rather than reading more jpegs.
does firefox do some caching or stop updating mjpeg if it's not visible/on-screen?
i found a similar script with this work around: https://github.com/WPI-RAIL/mjpegcanvasjs/blob/develop/src/visualization/Viewer.js#L78
but it doesn't work here

Hi all. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a version/port/fork of Firefox that is privacy-conscious?
for the desktop and Fennec
Like one that removes DRM, ads on the new tab page, tracking ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1183654 ), etc
Peng
srg: Tor Browser Bundle?

I'm able to download a file using Chrome. However, the file download doesn't work with Firefox. I see a response within Firefox, but the file does not auto download.
The response within Firefox has the data, which in this case is a comma separated file.
nate
srg: Curious where firefox has "DRM", or are you talking about for certain video control? Pretty sure that's easily controlled with about:config, also the 'ads' on the new tab page are also easily disabled/ignored
Peng
...Yeah, i didn't think that through.
greenride
Is there a (non-default) setting in Firefox to permit CSV File downloads?
Peng
right-click and save?
nate
greenride: You sure it's not the server-side that's doing it some how? Tried a fresh FF profile? I've never really seen firefox ignore any kind of file type
more so a common one like CSV
         

greenride
nate: What on the Server side (other than Browser detection) would allow CSV download on Chrome but not Firefox?
nate
greenride: useragent or cookies mainly come to mind. When you say you "see a response within firefox", what exactly are you seeing? have you used a tool like firebug to actually look at the network requests and see what it shows?
greenride
nate: Yes, I'm using Firebug and looking at the response. The entire content of the CSV file is in the response. However, the file doesn't auto-download as it does in Chrome.
nate
o.O
That's... definitely weird. Is it trying to open up inside of firefox by chance? Or is it being requested over Javascript or something?
My thoughts at the moment is perhaps you have a plugin of some sort trying to open up the CSV inside of FF, or that the CSV is being pulled over an AJAX or such request perhaps but the JS isn't handling it right in the case of FF

is there anyway to browse the web with thunderbird? or have thunderbird tabs open in firefox?
nate
loneclock1: thunderbird is an email client, firefox is a browser, that would kinda be like trying to open a skype chat inside of IRC
loneclock1
well i can use IRC inside of thunderbird :)
greenride
The response arrives, but the client side app/browser doesn't do anything with it. Chrome properly downloads as a file. I'm wondering what in the javascript, headers, or some other aspect causes the problem.
nate
I think thunderbird's rendering engine is really just limited to an HTML email, not sure it has any context of actual web requests beyond that
loneclock1: With plugins sure, but I feel like someone prob hasn't made a firefox plugin that implements firefox in thunderbird, that would be... weird :P

How to remove "View Pocket List" from Bookmarks?
nate
greenride: That sounds like it might be a better question for a web dev channel or the support of whatever site you're trying to download from
greenride
nate: Ok. Thanks

Hi, I've got thunderbird installed. I sort my emails by date, with the recent ones appearing at the top of the list.
I'm wondering, though, for certain emails that I want to keep, is there a way to "pin" it at the top?
otherwise, I'll have to use directories

Cork, thanks

I do have to ask, why is the "close tabs to the right" option implemented but not "close tabs to the left" in the tab area right click context menu?
Cork
LazyUser69: cause related tabs open to the right of the current tab
LazyUser69
Cork yes but what if I wanted to close the 'unrelated' tabs?
Cork
LazyUser69: then close them
LazyUser69
There's simply too many
Cork
you asked why, and i answered why :)
LazyUser69: so ctrl+n and close the old window
LazyUser69
And they all happen to be on the left
of the current tabs.
Cork
then drag the current tab to a new window and close the old one
LazyUser69
There's a lot of those too, you know.
But I see
Cork
also you could install tab mix plus
it gives you a ton of tab options
LazyUser69
360 tabs closed
Still nowhere near my record
auscompgeek
move tabs you want to a new tab group, close the old tab group? :P

hello
massive fan of firefox, always worked effortlessly with the things I want it too, however I have discovered a rather annoying bug
when opening some forms sheet music as a PDF, regardless if its online or not some of the elements such as the clefs dont display correctly
I tried it on lots of other viewers, they all display the PDF document flawlessly
auscompgeek
yes, pdf.js isn't perfect
tsubi
dont get me wrong, its not bad
auscompgeek
if you can create a reduced test case, I'd suggest filing a bug against it :)
tsubi
a what now?
I can link an example?
or do you want me to lodge a formal bug description?
Cork
tsubi: you could file a bug with a test pdf
it would at least make it more likely someone will try to fix it
tsubi
how does one do that?
Cork
https://bugzilla.mozilla.or
tsubi
I dont seen an option in the dev menue
Cork
tsubi
oh I have to make an account
guess I'll just install a proper PDF viewer then
well anyway, thanks for the help
unless someone with an account wants to file one for me that is
auscompgeek
well, we now have no test case at all
back to square 0 it seems

hi
firefox is prompting my users to (re)send the formdata after I logged them in using an ajax request and am redirecting them via window.location change, any suggestions on how to prevent this behaviour?
Cork
setting window.location shouldn't trigger a post
Justus
indeed
and it doesn't
which is (I guess) what this non standard pop up is about
so I was wondering how to prevent a popup from guessing whether my application did something right or wrong ;)
Cork
Justus: the popup is to prevent double posting to servers not handling it
so window.location.reload() for example causes it
while window.location = window.location won't
Justus
ok, this scenario: logindata is put into a form and submitted via ajax, the ajax says "go there", a form with target="there" is created and submitted. Once "there" is loaded some additional ajax operations are triggered, and on Firefox ESR 31.6.0 - Windows 7 64 Bit SP1 the popup appears prompting: "This web page is being redirected to a new location. Would you like to resend the form data you have typed to the new location?"
Cork
no the ajax isn't the cause
Justus
can using the html5 history api cause this?
