Social networking sharing used to be an addon at Mozilla Labs, I'm surprised to see it finally make its way into Fx itself (given that Labs has been defunct for quite some time)

It's pretty half arsed anyway with it not including the biggest social network on the planet :rolleyes:

 

Oh and Hello is working for me now, seems it wouldn't launch first time from the hamburger menu (or whatever it's called), had to be placed on a toolbar and started. THEN it could be moved back to the menu and it WOULD launch :rolleyes:

Australis problems ;)

Australis??? What's that? ^_^

Actually Australis has indirectly been a great thing - with all the customisation options available in Classic Theme Restorer, my Firefox UI is more compact, more efficient and all round better to use than even pre-Australis FF. So thanks Mozilla  :P

I actually like Australis, but it has gutted a bunch of features and introduced some that many disagree with

@citana,

welcome to my world :)

whenever I rebuild my PC's, it's a whole can of worms to get spellchecker to kick in.

it always does - eventually - just a lot of fluffing around.

 

let me do a search and track down my previous posts on the matter....

Spellcheck hasn't worked in the quick reply box in ages. I think it's IPB's problem though.

Project SIlk: Bringing the browser's animations (and rendering) up to hardware vsync. There's a few toggles to flip in about:config if you're running nightly, it's much smoother already.

Spell checking doesn't work on this forum in:

 

Firefox 10

Firefox 11 Beta

Aurora 12

Nightly 13

Waterfox 10

 

(For me at least  :P

of course I can't find the old post in question but in Firefox what worked for me was, when you start a post, right click on a word, make sure Check Spelling is ticked, go into Languages, Add Dictionaries and play around there.

Also in Tools, Options, Content, Languages, I mucked around.

 

I would love to give you more exact details, but all the times I've done it, it hasn't been a simple 1,2,3 solution.

It's always been adding dictionaries, changing languages, restarting FF - all numerous ways and times.

 

All I can say is eventually, I have gotten the spell checking feature on this forum to work.

But it's been a right royal pain.

Thanks. I didn't want to click on it and get some malware or whatever. Nice of FF to just dump it in there without explanation. Are they retarded or what? <_<

Eh, they did but not too well I think. Mozilla really really really sucks at feature discoverability... that's actually why they killed Metro Mode, no one was even aware it was there!

will ff not want to bring his own flash version?

I doubt it, what with Flash being effectively phased out in favour of HTML5

Not like Google does...... Google pays Adobe to make a special PPAPI version,Mozilla has asked for the same with an NPAPI version but they have declined. Shumway is coming along nicely (even plays some videos now!!!) but it's not ready for prime time yet.
