Fahrradkette: why not just ask your question?
Gaffel
Firefox gstreamer still doesn't use the plugins that enabled hardware accelerated video decoding.
I run 40.0.3 and I have installed all the plugins including vaapi. (Intel graphics, Broadwell CPU)
Fahrradkette
do the same addons work on both the desktop firefox and the android one?

Hello, does anyone here know why the input[type=text] initial width is now 400px under Gtk?
CPngN
you're behind, Gaffel ;)

CPngN: Ugh... slow package maintainers. :/

how do you view the backed up passwords in 6lfaq.... (website paswds)
varaindemian
why firefox prompts me to download video content (.mp4) instead of simply playing it? I am using arch linux. I dont't have flash player and I tried on chromium and it plays videos
Cork
varaindemian: cause firefox can't handle h264 internally (patent forbids it)
if you install gstreamer with the codec it can though
varaindemian
Cork: I think I already installed gstreamer. How can I check?
Cork
varaindemian: fist check about:buildconfig
check the enable-gstreamer option for if you need 0.10 or 1.x
varaindemian
Cork: --enable-gstreamer=1.0
Cork
ok so you need 1.0+
also you need the ugly gstreamer pack
some has h264 split out into libav
meaning gstreamer-libav
varaindemian
checked about:config and media.gstreamer was disabled
auscompgeek
but... that's enabled by default O_o
varaindemian
auscompgeek: apparently it wasn't for me..

I've updated to version 41.0, after ~10 hours or so, with 5 open tabs, the browser barely responded to anything, the memory consumption raised to 3.5GB and the CPU was consistently at ~12%... I took the time to close all tabs but a blank one, and still, memory consumption left high, cpu usage was rather weird (up and down)
I ran about:memory, tried GC/CC/etc... didn't change anything, I tried to gather information- and firefox crashed
Needless to say that this a fresh firefox profile, no active addons, no active plugins- everything is disabled. firefox is 'vanilla' no setting has been changed
Am I losing my mind? I'm the only one experiencing this since version 36 or so? ... my Windows environment is solid, I have quite a few long running instances, my windows uptime is now ~3 months or so

how can i debug http/2 connection issues?
when i try to load the page, nothing happens and the developer tools show no http requests
i think it is an issue server-side, but curl has no problem, so i am confused
still, firefox shows very odd behavior here
auscompgeek
curl doesn't do http/2 though
have you tried it in chromium?
RobotsOnDrugs
curl can use nghttp2
no, haven't tried chromium
if chromium has tools to help debug this, i suppose i could look at it
Cork
ya, curl support http/2
heck he was part of the spec writing...
auscompgeek
oh, really? when did that happen?
Cork
since basically they started writing the spec
it was among the first ones supporting it
(each iteration of it)
auscompgeek
oh, huh. TIL.
Cork
so the first entry i find is 2012-07-13
so it's been a while :)

Hi all! Can somebody help me? I have WebRTC javascript app. Ap is cyclic, it uses camera to make a shot, then it processes collected image and then get backs to the page, where camera is using. Problem is that Firefox always show camera permission dialog. On desktop Firefox it's easy to avoid it with Permission manager, telling Firefox use camera without permission for specific site. But on Android, Firefox always asks for camera and there is no
Permission manager or something like this. How can I tell Firefox for Android use camera without permission for specific site?

Why won't things like 'pocket' and 'hello' just be listed in the extension list so you can disable it without having to go into about:config ?
And I think it would be nice to have a 'custom new tab page' via the gear icon on the new tab bpage

hi guys
why is firefox on OSX such a huge memory eater ?
AlexPortable
because it's hungry
YamakasY
AlexPortable: and why is it hungy, didn't you feed it again ?
AlexPortable
no i didnt
thats your task :3
YamakasY
AlexPortable: no I told my maid she needed to instruct you to do it
AlexPortable
she failed to instruct that then
I would hire someone else

hi
I440r
how do i stop firefox from constantly resetting the view frame back to the TOP of the page as it loads it in?
i scroll down. start reading BAM im at the top
repeatedly as it loads in the page
MAJORLY annoying
and it never used to do that

Is there any key combination to bring up the "Remember Password" pop-up?

hi, i noticed just now that since maybe today? my firefox new tab is showing common links instead of being blank as i want it. "browser.newtab.url" in about:config is set to "about:blank" still. firefox 41.0, arch linux 64bit
dorp
DryEagle: Don't you have an icon on the top-right for settings?
DryEagle
ah didnt notice that
but, its not properly blank, it still has that icon there
so the browser.newtab.url is being ignored now?
just going to about:blank does open a blank page
dorp
DryEagle: Maybe an addon? 'New Tab Override'
DryEagle
so i have to use an addon now for basic functionality to work? wow great
guess i can add that to the list alnog with 'classic theme restorer' (for not having stupidly huge tabs) and 'old default image style'
