I have an AJAX web application which is very sensitive to the number of connections allowed by the browser. Bad things happen when the limit is set up low: frozen screens, uncommitted transactions, deadlocks etc.

In order to prevent this I need to check the current value of configuration parameter "network.http.max-connections-per-server" programmatically (i.e. by the javascript code) and reject a request if the limit is too low with appropriate instructions to the user.

I guess it's possible because "about:config" renders all parameters values and even lets user to modify them. However the code behind the page is very complicated so I can't figure out how to perform my task. All I need is a function or method returning the current value of a given config parameter.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I just installed SEOquake for a writing project, then realized I didn't need it. Also, the plugin is interfering with a few apps online. How do I remove it from the browser?

Also, I'm running ubuntu on this computer. Is there any particular procedure unique to Linux I have to follow?

Sometimes when I open a new tab, the other one opens unexpectedly with some stupis adverts (www.gsming.com). I hate it, I have no idea how did it happen and I can't really remember when it started. It gets really annoying and I thought there's a websites black list on Firefox (I mean something where I input website's address and it won't open).

So my question is: Is there such list and if so, how do I use it? If not, how can I get rid of those opening tabs?

Okay folks. Mozilla is playing their cards very close to their chest with this one, though I can't understand why all the secrecy.

2012 EDIT Since version 7, Firefox appears broken and unable to recognize mms protocol. HOWEVER, if you copy your mms:// URL to a tab in the browser and edit it so that it begins http:// instead of mms:// then the browser will successfully hand the task onto your audio player, such as mplayer or vlc. So this provides a way to successfully skirt around the problem. There is nothing further in this thread applicable to versions newer than 7, so you can close this tab and go try it. Good luck!

2011: HERE'S THE SOLUTION for handling mms protocol for Firefox version 3.6 and versions near that, but not version 7 or later. This is Linux specific; I can't help you with Windows solution. Sorry. Windows users maybe look here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Register_protocol#Firefox_3.5_specif... or try the Gecko suggestion given by cor-el in a reply in this thread.

Linux Solution

I'm using Firefox 3.6.9 with these plugins: mplayer,quicktime,realplayer,shockwave flash,windows media player

In the firefox address box type this simple but weird-looking URL about:config and open it. Then right-click on any entry in the long list that comes up. Right-clicking brings up the menu we will use to create a new entry. Select new and of type boolean. Carefully type in the name of the new preference as network.protocol-handler.expose.mms and then select for its value false. We are finished with this window, so you can close it.

We now need a page with an mms link to click on. (For this step, it really must be a clickable link. It won't work if you just type the URL yourself.) Here's a page http://beelinetv.com/ with plenty of mms links including a delightfully-named Al Karma. Go there now and left-click on Al Karma. You'll see a window open. Double-click on Select an application and navigate through your file system to a media player you have installed which will handle mms streams. I have mplayer, and its pathname is /usr/bin/mplayershell. (You might have gxine, or totem, or VLC, or ... etc.) Click the box to Remember my choice. We're now done. Your new configuration info will get saved when you quit the browser. Now, whenever you click on a mms link, whether it's a movie, or radio or a television channel, the browser should automatically hand the job of playing it to your chosen player. Though I found I had to select the player a few times before it eventually remembered; firefox can be a slow learner.  :(

If you want your browser to also accommodate rtsp:// links, repeat the above. For handling rtsp audio stream, I use the helix player, through many will use realplayer. Don't forget, you'll need to find a page with a clickable rtsp link to set this up. Or you can create your own link, it doesn't need to have an actual stream. To do this, create a text file, say text.html containing this line of code:

<a href="rtsp://1.1.1.1/">rtsp link</a>

and open it in a new TAB in your browser, using a URL something like: file:///path/text.html. You should see a link to click on.

The job is done. You can ignore the remainder of this thread.

Any problems? Add a message to the end of this thread.


Note: my solution has nothing to do with the gecko player

I'd like to clear my history so it doesn't load every time I open Firefox, but I want to archive it first (or export it, or save it, whatever you'd call this). That way I can load it if necessary. Is there a way to do this?

I don't mind if a new, shorter history starts accumulating, but I want to be able to go back to last year, if necessary. My history is pretty massive and it's definitely slowing down FF.
