Thread: Firefox Button Order

  1. #1

    Default Firefox Button Order

    Firefox Button Order is just wrong.
    It's like Cancel/Ok
    It should be like Ok/Cancel
    I tried to edit /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and add
    Code:
    gtk-alternative-button-order = 1
    but it didn't work.
    Thanks and regards...

    what do you have to do to get an Cancel/OK ?

    (it is not "Save Link as", because that gives Save/Cancel; it is not
    "Send Link" because that opens a mail client; it is not in the
    Preferences dialog because there it is OK/Cancel; . . . so, i am tired
    of looking and guessing..

    tell us were/how you get that and then lets see if anyone can duplicate it.

    You don't have to look deeply.
    It's just button order

    one absolutely MUST look deeply here! see http://susepaste.org/9447220

    because as you can see, i can not duplicate your problem (even when i
    know where to look--though i admit i don't know how to provoke the
    "Default browser" dialog, but every button order i can find is OK/Cancel)

    maybe you unknowingly did something to change that....try using YaST >
    Security & Users > User & Group Management to add a new test user, then
    log out and back into that test user, and see if the button order
    switches to Cancel/OK....if so, then something in your /home is scrambled..

    or maybe it is something the mozilla folks did with their latest release..

    or, maybe you are sharing profiles between your linux and window's
    partition? (don't windows do it the 'wrong way' by default?)

    well actually it was a suse studio problem.
    if i would open a thread in there, no one would care, sorry.
    i know it doesn't exist on official opensuse 12.2
    i checked every package, since they are all same repos and packages, i just couldnt figured it out.
    so let's imagine i did something wrong and wanna change it back.
    or let's imagine i wanna change button order of official opensuse like cancel/ok .
    how can i change button order ?
    that was my actual question.
    regards...

    well, i think your actual question is:

    How do i find the button order inside the Mozilla Firefox source code
    base, and once found how do i rearrange it to _my_ liking?

    and, i can't answer that....especially not in this forum!

    but there is a forum with programming in its name
    <http://tinyurl.com/5v695w4>, and another mentioning the Studio
    <http://tinyurl.com/6bzscrr>, and you might even find some help in the
    Build Service <http://tinyurl.com/64xoegy>

    however, unless you already have several years of programming experience
    i'd suggest your first step might be to do that, first.

    and, while you are learning the basics of computer programming you might
    even get used to using _either_ Cancel/OK *or* OK/Cancel just by looking
    at what is written on each button _before_ clicking.

    It's not about programming.
    It's about something like

    Code:
    gtk-alternative-button-order = 1
    opensuse uses some scripts to configure system.
    that is what i need to, just a bash script or something.
    you seem like an experienced developer.
    so you dont have to waste your time with my little problem.
    regards...

    no, i am not a developer (experienced or otherwise)...i didn't intend to
    give you the impression i was..

    sometimes i can successfully construct a simple script, but i can't
    'program' my way out of a paper bag....most often my "Hello world."
    messages, don't.

    i don't know a magic one-liner to reverse the button order...if i were
    you i would search and/or post to a mozilla list/forum
    http://www.mozilla.org/

    my last word: the order is as it should be in mine--i have to wonder
    what you did to yours to mess it up.
