Browser news and updates

Firefox 3.0 RC 1 takes the lead on speed. The Mozilla dev team claims to have squeezed more performance out of Firefox 3.0. The betas were fast, so has the team been able to get more out of their code?Over the past few months I have benchmarked several incarnations of Firefox 3.0 beta. My last benchmark of Firefox 3.0 (using the SunSpider JavaScript benchmark), which looked at Beta 5, showed the browser to be the fastest of the pack, comfortably beating all the competition.UPDATE: I just upgraded: there is no "back page" button, and most of my extension are GONE: chatzilla had an updated version however.SECOND UPDATE: the first update problem was MY fault :-)FireFox 3.0 RC 1 news blog.The Beta is available here !

Fire Fox 4 browser issues

I recently switched to FF4, and notice that there are a couple of issues independent of recent updates. For instance, I can no longer see the rating stars on projects or forum topics, and RickHarris has reported missing buttons in the Guide system. If you have changed to FF4, is anything missing or dysfunctional for you? If so, please leave a comment here, and I will pass them on to HQ iat the end of the week.

Unable to publish 'ible in browser

During my last 'ible I ran into an issue of not being able to publish it when using a browser and ended up publishing through the mobile app which worked fine. Here's a picture (clickable for full size): Required info: OS: Win7 Ultimate SP1 32bit Browser: Chrome Version 38.0.2125.111 m Place: The last page before 'ible gets published Reproduction: happened every time I tried publishing in browser no matter the way I tried to do it. Didn't happen on app. Didn't try other browsers. I don't exactly know the cause of it, but do have some ideas as I did some things I don't usually do. 1 - changed the category of 'ible I pre-selected in the beginning of creation. Probably not the reason since it saved and later published properly in this category. 2 - tried to set licence to PD which is not my default before publishing. Then tried setting PD as default and publishing with it. Then tried publishing with my usual default CC BY NC SA. Nothing helped, but I think there might be something here, since I'm not able to change the type of licence even after I've published it.

Put the robot on your browser.

So yesterday when I had the usual Firefox Google page open up there was a little thing at the bottom that advertised an add-on called Personas. I checked it out and it turns out it has a lot of different "skins" for Firefox that you can interchange without restarting your browser. So, when I saw that you could make your own skins I thought of one thing, an Instructables persona, and here it is. For those who think that the amount of orange on each page of Instructables is not enough for their daily lives.The file for the footer is 3000x100 pixels. The file for the headers is 3000x200 pixels which is required for the headers and footers. The pictures below are just showing what the right sides of the different headers look like. The links below lead to the original files for the headers and footers so you can make them a part of your browser, just follow the instructions here, go to "Do I have to add my Persona to the public gallery?". Just download the original pics from these pages.Robot Header copyRobot Header 1 copyRobot Header 2 copyRobot Header 3 copyFooter it is just the darker orange color on the headerUPDATE:The persona for the first one is finally available on Personas

Android tablet vs YouTube Answered

Fewer and fewer YouTube videos (such as those embedded here) are working on my Android tablet. I'll see the usual frame image, but as soon as I hit play, more and more of them just become black rectangles. It's not the videos themselves, as they play on a Windows netbook or an iPod, or in the Photon browser I just downloaded. Has YouTube changed the way it plays videos,  or has Android been updated in a way that is not YouTube friendly? I want to keep using the Android browser, rather than the Photon, partly because all my bookmarks are in the defsult browser, and partly because Photon is horrible to use.

Links in articles should open a new tab

When links in projects are clicked on, the browser immediately takes you to that page. This loses the Instructable topic unless you page back to it. There should be a way to set the site up so that links open new tabs. I know because I moderate and manage a programming forum. Thanks! Ted Weissgerber

constant reloggin & returning to previous page

I use the latest Firefox and have a problem with this site only, so I'm assuming it's the website and not the browser. When I go to a next page, the browser many times has to re- log me (if I've only been on that page for less than a few seconds, it doesn't do that). Also when I go to a next page, it'll briefly show that next page, but then jerk me back to the very first page. EX1: Viewing the entries for a contest and click on the next page, it'll jerk me back to page one or it'll even take me to the contest details page. EX2: Viewing items under a subject that has several pages. I click on the next page (or even the next number, does for both ways), it briefly shows that next page and then jerks me back to page 1.  I can be on page 10 and click on 11 and it jerks me back to page 1. This has been happening for a couple of months now, so it doesn't seem to be going away. Any ideas?

Most Contests Showing as "0 days left" in Firefox Browser

When using Firefox to browse the list of contests the majority are showing as "0 days left" to enter, even though the contests are still open. I can only re-create the problem when using the Firefox browser (v54.0.1), Chrome and Internet Explorer behave as expected. I have completely reset my browser (including cookies, history, cache etc.) but the problem persists. If I open a contest page the description shows "Only 0 s left to enter the...." , however the "Enter Now" button is available and appears to work as expected.

Video playback

I've recently noticed that embedded Vimeo-hosted videos don't play in Firefox 47. While they don't even show In SRWare Iron or SlimBrowser,  in Firefox the video window is visible and sets up ready to play, but when moused over it displays a meaningless error ("Curses!", "Aw fiddlesticks!", etc.) claiming "This video can't be played with your current setup". "Leg for a wooden table (incredible strength)" is a recent 'ible example. If I go through the process of searching the page source code for the video (https://player.vimeo.com/video/171982493 in the above example), copy and paste the URL, and go to the link directly, the video plays perfectly, so it's not some browser or other setting that's blocking Vimeo. (Even tried with all browser add-ons disabled - no joy.) I'm not competent enough to troubleshoot the issue, but it's frustrating to have to dissect the page to play embedded videos in a separate tab. Any work around would be appreciated. Thanks.

Another Fire Fox Question.....it just will not stay UP

Ok, I am having difficulties recently with FireFox (I am using FLOCK because of this). I click on the ShortCut and the home page loads (here of course), but as soon as most of the page loads, it shuts down, and then prompts me to send FF an error report. Yesterday was the first I noticed this. This morning, I backed up a day using the setting restore, but nothing changed. Has anyone else experienced recent problems with their upgrade or anything?

Keep me logged in fails in Chrome 9

1. On the Home page after you click Login it opens up a user name and password box, but I see no Remember Me checkbox. (And why not always show login boxes if user is not logged in; why require an extra click?) 2. When I log in on some non-Home page, such as when leaving a comment, I *do* see a keep me logged in box, but the site never honors it. I *always* have to log in fresh here every single time no matter what I select. Highly annoying. My cookie settings are: Allow local data to be set (recommended), with nothing else set, no exceptions. Great site otherwise.    --David

Finally made the switch from Opera to Firefox

I am just so sick of Opera. It drives me up the fucking wall. Sometimes when I close it, the next time I start it up it will start up a new instance of opera with totally new tabs and any changes I made to it go poof. And then the next time I start it up again it starts up the old opera that was supposed to open up last time, and all my transfers from the last time are gone again. It just happened thing morning. I was downloading a Bungie ViDoc (Bungie Halo 3 documentary) last night, and had 5 MB on it. And then I open Opera this morning and POOF. It's just gone! Argh. So I've finally moved over to Firefox. I'm just sick of all the glitches and inconsistencies. I could go on and on and on. Unfortunately, this means I have to use Thunderbird now. That's not nescessarily a bad thing, it just means that my mail/RSS and browsing are now separate. I know it's going to be a pain in the ass, but at least it won't suddenly fail on me or forget my settings. At least it will be consistent and reliable. One great thing about Firefox: it doesn't adhere to web standards (unlike Opera), which means that Instructables displays correctly! :D

Virtual LEGO building for Google Chrome Web Browser!!!

Technology has just been released to allow users to build virtual creations with LEGO using the Google Chrome Web Browser! Now you can pretend to be busy at work (or school) while making some new amazing Lego Builds! You can download Chrome and get started HERE.  It's super easy to use AND IT'S ALL IN 3D. Right now there are only basic pieces in 10 different colors and doors and windows, but I'm sure there will be more parts down the road. So do you think this is as cool as I do, or is virtual building a step in the wrong direction? ** If you make something with it, take a screenshot and post the image for others to see. ;-)

Attempts to print cause browser crash

I'm hoping that *somebody* here can help me. I've been trying to print out a couple of instructables (all the steps in one file), but my browser crashes just about every time I try.If I'm *lucky*, I'll get one file printed successfully before it crashes on the second instructable -- but usually the first attempt will crash the browser.It doesn't crash my system, just the browser itself.The latest message is:"Internet explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the incovenience".Error Signature:AppName: iexplore.exeModVer: 7.0.6000.16640AppVer: 7.0.6000.16640Offset: 001cd123ModName: mshtml.dllThis particular error is from Internet Explorer, but I've had a similar error producing the same effect from Firefox on the same system (at home).I've also had the same error on Internet Explorer on a different computer (at work).I've had the same result with instructables bookmarked on my Firefox system, instructables bookmarked on del.icio.us, as well as instructables randomly loaded from the website itself.At home I've been trying to print to the PDF Creator software program, as I don't own a printer.At work, I've tried to both print directly to the printer, as well as printing to Adobe Acrobat 8 in an attempt to create a PDF file.I get the same errors, no matter which printing method I use.All attempts to print to PDF Creator and Adobe Acrobat 8 from other web sites have worked fine -- and I've gotten instructables to print to both of those software programs once or twice. Just it's only maybe 1 attempt out of 20.Admin - if more detailed error reports would be helpful, please contact me at the address on my account.

I know there are sites and images that show your IP Address, browser, OS, possible location, etc. Could you have some way of writing this found information into a database, or would that be too much of a security flaw? I'm not talking about tracert commands, IP locators, etc. EDIT: Sorry if i wasn't clear enough for anyone, I was meaning something like a PHP, HTML or Java code that logs the visitors IP Address (And if possible, some other miscellaneous information) on a .txt file or something similar.

Pwn2Own hacker: Apple Safari is 'easy pickings'Charlie Miller, the security researcher who won last year's Pwn2Own hacker contest, is predicting that Apple's Safari browser will be the easiest target this year.In a note posted on the popular Daily Dave mailing list, Miller describes Safari as "easy pickin's" and forecasts that at least four zero-day Safari flaws will be used during the contest at CanSecWest later this month...Safari: hacked by 4 different people. Easy pickin's as usual.Android: hacked by 1 person. Not too tough but no one owns one.IE8, Firefox: Survive unscathed. The bugs to exploit equation is too hard for $5k.iPhone, Symbian: Survive due to non-executable heap.Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Chrome: I don't know enough to say anything intelligent. That said, they're probably hard/obscure and so survive.Last year, Miller exploited a Safari flaw to hijack a fully patched MacBook Pro machine. He is also known for launching successful attacks against Apple's iPhone and Google's Android platform.Safari predicted to be the easiest target this year...
