I COULD add an exception...



  • Got this on mozilla.org a few moments ago, FF3.6.2, not sure what I can add an exception to...



  •  If you do, it's very important you write a comment to the exception (in English). In ideal case, send me a sequence step by step to similate exception. Try to find dependencies. Your effort will be useful for all TDWTF users. Thank you.



  •  

    Please tell me you tried to create an exception. 



  • Did you get this soon after upgrading Firefox?  I've found that FF likes to do such things when its data files are upgraded while it's running.  Modal dialog boxes with zero pixels of content area (i.e. just the window decorations, squeezed into an unusably small space) are another common and amusing symptom.  Closing FF and restarting it generally fixes it.

    (Yeah, I know, the other replies are so much more interesting.)

    Yeah, especially those where someone gives an uninformed and only tangentially related reply, after which the usual suspects veer off into the realm of utterly boring in-crowd pleasing. Perhaps someone ought to tell them such things as chat rooms, MSN, or Facebook walls exist solely for that purpose. My best guess is they think this forum is a chat box or something similar to net send /all, and they still haven't adapted to this whole new ICQ thing.

    God I love those threads.

    Don't feel bad; you did a good job. Keep it up.

    Hello? Are you familiar with the internet? It would appear not.



  • You guys!

     it's been about a week or so and at least a couple FF restarts since I last updated. It especially made me WTF because my co-worker said "Oh FFS mozilla.org is down? really?", so like a good cynic, I had to check it for myself, then blam - that came up. He got a regular "server not found" or whatever the default FF response is when it can't find even a 404, I got that.

     and no, I was far too terrified to try to add an exception, fearing it would probably clear out all of my legit SSL exceptions I have stored...

    in other news, boy look what I started. I'm innocent, I promise. but ROFL @ the die in a fire pic. nice. //saved



  • FYI, there was a grand bug error in 3.6, that repeatedly and consistently crashed the program all the time continuously, but a new upgrade fix to the next sub- sub-version increment fixed all everything.

    It's only boring to you, because you have no friends.

    The problem with IRC is that it moves too quickly.  There's no time to refine and embellish the clever dick jokes.

     

    @TGV said:

    ...MSN...

    I don't even know what you're referring to.  Also: convicted monopoli$t.

     

    @TGV said:

    ...or Facebook walls...

    The problem with Facebook is that people can defriend you, thus depriving themselves of your classy wit.  I swear, you troll one suicidal teenager's funeral page and suddenly you're a bad guy.

    No, this forum is better.  For one, there are all sorts of whiny douchebags to piss off here.

    I'm disillusioned. I thought all of your clever dick jokes were pure improv.

    We also embellish the dicks themselves.

     

    Thank you thank you,

    We're here all night.

     

    Literally.

    Damn right you are.  There's hundreds of those pages out there, and you've only trolled one?  Someone else is going to have to pick up all your slack, you know.

    I've found that posting gratuitous xkcd reference is one of the quickest ways to piss them off, you should see them start ranting and raving and frothing at the mouth.

    You may find that most of us enjoy xkcd, but the most vocal member of the forums despises it.  We all, however, find it annoying when you post xkcd comics that have been posted a million times before.

    Whatever happened to that guy who posted Dilbert comics? And what about that guy that posted his messages as an obfuscated perl script?

    Substituting quasi-relevant xkcd's and thinking it makes you witty is what pisses me off.  Also, I hate that goddamn comic because it's not funny.  I figure if you are brain-damaged enough to like it, you read it regularly, so you don't need to see it posted again.  And if you hate it (yet are afflicted with a condition where you must read every xkcd you encounter even if it fills you with unholy rage) then seeing it just wastes your time and raises your blood pressure, thus killing you even faster.  At this point, I've read enough xkcd that my life expectancy is probably around 33.

    I like that one, but I like this one best.

    I can explain the joke, if you like, but it would require more than 50 words, a bulleted list, and 1 dick. (Maybe 2)

    Is the joke that in the 3rd panel the guy looks like he's performing fellatio on himself?
