    interesting to see something from Adelaide here. although, Adelaide Metro, hardly surprising.

    Firefox sometimes goes mental and displays a context menu with every single right click option for Firefox as well as all your installed addins. Not sure what causes it but most Firefox users have encountered it at some point or another.

    I only know it is Friday surprisingly often, when I see Error'd on Google reader. It cheers me twice over.

    GET and POST are too high level. Just jump into a packet at the transport layer. For reliable transmission I recommend Train Control Protocol.

    I've seen that Firefox context menu when accidentally right-clicking and dragging on the scrollbar a few months ago. At the time, I assumed it was a feature, not a bug, but I can't reproduce it now. Maybe it was a bug after all.

    Worked for me right now with Firefox 3.6.13. And no, I hadn't seen the mega-menu before. I guess I'm just a very boring guy.

    I'm pretty sure the top half is separate poster physically pasted over the existing sign, which would explain the different font size.

    I seen the mega menu for Firefox all the time when playing in Flash games. I would get the mega menu outside the window, and the Flash right click in the correct spot.

    Also, the right-click drag release on the scroll works for me as well.

    I don't. I'm using the Windows version of 3.6.13

    I'd like to point out that this is from my corner of the world - Adelaide, Australia - and that this picture has been badly photoshopped. I can probably take a picture of the actual signs as they stand, but they really don't look anything like this. A key giveaway is that the sign, though black and white photocopied, has coloured red and green squiggles. Also the edges are badly aligned. And before anybody claims that they have been colour photocopied from a mainly B&W print - the office these were produced in doesn't have a single colour printer anywhere.

    Yea, you can tell pretty clearly in the upper right hand corner of the sign that this isn't a real photograph. And I have to say, the person who decided to photoshop this image might be the saddest person in the world. Like, if you're going to take the time and energy to do something stupid like this, at least come up with something slightly more interesting than spellcheck lines on a bus stop sign.

    On the firefox menu...what exactly does 'Merge Windows' do?

    captcha: transverbero....that's what happens when you manage to click every menu option

    The train URLs seem to be within a local network rather than fully-qualified addresses that would work from the outside world; there's no TLD in the hostname.

    The firefox menu is reproducible. You have to be browsing for a while, as some certain memory condition is needed. It's replicated by right clicking, dragging your mouse cursor outside of the window area (like to your desktop), then left clicking while the right mouse button is still down. Once firefox gets in the right "mood" I can replicate it every time.

  • Herohtar (unregistered) in reply to Me!

    I've never seen the mega right-click menu in Firefox and I've been using it since it was Phoenix. I can't seem to reproduce it in 4.0b11 either.

    On the firefox menu...what exactly does 'Merge Windows' do?

    I'm not familiar with that option, probably because I use only a single window, but I would assume that it takes all the pages open in separate windows and merges them into a single window with multiple tabs.

    The only thing I can think of is someone having a bunch of windows open and being able to merge them into one. This seems stupid since having multiple windows defeats the whole idea of tabs. But Firefox has the "Tear off Tab" feature, where you can drag a tab off the tab bar and create a new window.

    Reminds me of when a couple of station clocks reached 59, and kept going. My 7:63 left on time though.

    That sounds like a nice feature. Another one I always wanted for tabbed browsing was the ability to drop and drag a tab from one window to another.

    I have loyally used Firefox for years now, and have never encountered it.

    Now I feel like I'm missing out.

    You can actually do that on Firefox right now. At least, I can in 3.6.13. I've no idea what version introduced that ability, but it is nice.

    Well, the Logout link on the 'Please Login' page is easy enough to explain:

    Your cookies are half-baked. :-P

    Or, to put another way, the site's cookies don't have all the information needed by the site encoded with in the cookie.

    You'll see this when you haven't visited a web site in a while, and they added/changed a feature while you were away.

    The simplest fix is to hit every 'logout' link that you see until it starts saying 'login'.

    (I've actually had to do this on a Fortune 500 site.)

    So does Firefox, or at least Firefox 4.0 Beta 11, although I'm 99% certain it's not new

    Just tested, works in 3.6.13, I think it's been working since 3.6.0. Also, Safari will do it, too.
