Title: foxyproxy under linux
Description: overwriting foxyproxy.xml
greg - June 6, 2007 09:21 PM (GMT)
I use foxyproxy under Win XP and under Linux. With Windows It works nice.
Under Linux I lost my settings. The file foxyproxy.xml was initialzed, everytime I start firefox. What do I do wrong?

Check that the user running the firefox process has read/write privileges to the location where foxyproxy.xml is written (the firefox profile directory). If you can't grant it privileges to that directory, you can change the directory where it's saved in FoxyProxy->Global Settings tab.

Thanks 4 your answer. I have read/write privileges in the default directory. I also have changed the location of foxyproxy.xml to my home directory. Here I have read/write privileges too.
Everytime I start Firefox an open FoxyProxy via Extras->FoxyProxy->Weiter->Optionen the file foxyproxy.xml is initialized. Then I can edit all entries. This is saved to foxyproxy.xml.
But, when I close Firefox and restart it again, the same things happens.

Is Firefox running as this user or another?

Firefox is running under the same user. I am the user of the process, I think.
greg@ada:~$ ps -ef |grep -i firefox

1. Open about:config in the browser address (location) bar.
3. Set the preference browser.dom.window.dump.enabled to true (create preference if it doesn't exist)
4. Restart Firefox (make sure you close ALL firefox processes/windows)
Report the errors here and we'll get it fixed!

The first item is just a warning and can be ignored. The second item is more important, but when does this error occur?
greg - June 12, 2007 06:56 PM (GMT)
the first entry is only a warning. You are right. It isn't important.
The second item I have got after restarting firefox. Before restarting, I edit the proxy settings in foxyproxy.

I'm almost out of ideas. The error has nothing to do with file I/O, so I don't know why this error even appears. Let me ask a few other developers to see if they have ideas. Greg, do you know if the firefox process is crashing instead of closing normally? Do you get a prompt when you restart firefox to "restore sessions"?
Eric H. Jung - June 13, 2007 05:14 PM (GMT)
Greg, if I build a custom XPI for you to test which possibly fixes this problem, can you try it? Since I cannot reproduce the problem myself, I don't know if my fix works. Please email me directly if possible: eric.jung @ yahoo.com.

While I'm testing, firefox doesn't crashes. Also, I didn't get a prompt to "restore sessions" when I restart firefox.

im also trying to use foxyproxy under linux and have a problem...
the problem is that i can't enable quick add feature. i think it has something to do with linux keyboard configuration, but im not sure. alt-f2 just simply doesn't work, and ive installed the keyconfig extension but i can't seem to find the entry im supposed to change to use different key combo. in the keyconfig window, what is the name of the key im supposed to change? maybe the fact that i can't find the key explains why alt-f2 doesnt work. perhaps if i add the correct key with the correct shortcut and id it'd work? it also seems that now the proxy configuration is messed up... looking at the main foxyproxy configuration dialog, it lists no proxies, but if i right click the foxyproxy icon in the statusbar, it still shows my two proxies...

have a look at the systemsettings keyboard or keyboard control.
