:oops:

Gee Thanks. I had time to kill at the office today.

Im glad we found a simple way to get around it. You should have seen some of the other crazy methods that I was trying to get to work (emulated mouse click in javascript on a text link to name one.)

My only fear now is that Pandora will begin a vicious cat and mouse to continually break the workarounds we have.

cd c:pandora

start "Program FilesJavajdk1.5.0_06binjava"-jar pandora.jar 8085

cd c:Program FilesMozilla Firefox

start firefox http://www.pandora.com/

ping -n 8 127.0.0.1

start firefox http://localhost:8085

the script above didn't work for me but the one below did:

cd c:pandora

start java -jar pandora.jar 8085

cd c:Program FilesMozilla Firefox

start firefox http://www.pandora.com/

ping -n 8 127.0.0.1

start firefox http://localhost:8085

if anybody wants, i made the bat file for you guys, just download it & your all set but if you are curious to see whats in the file just open it with notepad & you'll see its the same code here:

http://rapidshare.com/files/8670724/pandora_fix.bat.html

but the script mentioned below didn't work for me -

I have done it.

A little greasemonkey magic (and a lot of way to complicated methods) and i finally figured it out. In the source code there is a section of code for javascriptless browsers (or those with JS disabled). The greasemonkey script grabs out the code between that {noscript}{/noscript} section

try it out if you would like to. I have GM 0.6.6.20061017.0 and Firefox 2.0.0.1 with Flash 8.0.24.

Grab the script here

http://hockersmith.net/FirefoxHacking/pandorajar.user.js

RawSource:

// ==UserScript==

// @name          Pandora's Jar 

// @namespace     d09733c0-fe4c-11d9-8cd6-08000686llk5

// @description   Trick Pandora into Loading in Pandoras jar (Firefox)

// @include       http://www.pandora.com/?cmd=mini

// ==/UserScript==



(function () {



    var fix = document.getElementById("TunerEmbed");

    var htmlcode = fix.innerHTML;

    var pos = htmlcode.indexOf("<noscript>");

    var end = htmlcode.indexOf("</noscript>");

    var goodcode = htmlcode.substring(pos+10,end);

    fix.innerHTML = goodcode;

})();

Edit: I took out the debug line in the raw code above. It was from when I was doing testing and accidentally left it in there

but I had installed before he took out the debug line from the raw code, so I guess maybe it'll work now - well see. I'll try it later. Thanx by the way for the pandora jar guys. By the way, I think pandora caught on to what we are doing & now they are trying make us upgrade to flash 9 so we cant rip no more but thanx to you guys that'll be hard for them.

Automating your method comes to mind first.

I use a bat file to start up my jar anyway. just add a bit to it...

cd c:pandora

start "Program FilesJavajdk1.5.0_06binjava"-jar pandora.jar 8085

cd c:Program FilesMozilla Firefox

start firefox http://www.pandora.com/

ping -n 8 127.0.0.1

start firefox http://localhost:8085

This worked for me when I switched it to the ports I'm using, but for some reason it's stuck on manual grab mode. :?:

Try it with

change in pandoraGrabber.html:

<iframe src="http://www.pandora.com/?cmd=mini" scrolling=no id="tunerFrame" name="tunerFrame"></iframe>

to

<iframe src="http://index.li/pandoraGrabber2.html" scrolling=no id="tunerFrame" name="tunerFrame"></iframe>

without any other changes in Pandora.beta.7.4.0, Windows XP, Firefox 2.0.0.1

it works fine :)

P.S. thanks for your hard work

As Discussed here

http://www.hak5.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t...sc&start=15

the easiest fix is to use the NoScript Extension for firefox, and then enable scripts for localhost (using the dialogue at the bottom of the browser is easiest), but leave them disabled for pandora.com. Steps (thanks to rabidwonton):

(1) Install the NoScript Firefox addon from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/722/

(2) Run pandora.jar and open localhost

(3) click the options button in the dialogue that appears in the bottom of the browser.

(4) Click Allow localhost

(5) Wait for the refresh and enjoy

In addition to fixing pandora's jar, NoScript is also useful for blocking scripts from unfamliar sites, etc. I've posted this as a duplicate in the main discussion forum as well

Not sure how this is working for anyone else, but for me disabling pandora.com scripts completely disables pandora. Fresh install of noscript. Flash blocking is not enabled. FF 2.0, flash 8, etc. It leaves a blank flash page in it's place (says "Movie not loaded...")

I'm trying this because I had managed to get PJ working, but for the past day or so, it only rips the first song and stops working after that... so honestly this might not solve my problem, but I thought it was worth a shot.

sorry i am new to this whole thing, both firefox and the whole script thing....

yet I dont even get close to the allowing of "localhost"

the best I've done is creating the *.bat file (from the N00b's guide) and getting pandora going.... ONLY when I upgrade the flash player.

without doing that all "suggestions" have not worked, including, the "this frame" option...

I will be honest the post with this info:

// grab local version of browser object because jquery will wipe out $

browser = $.browser;

checkBrowser = true;

(function() {

var div;

var version = deconcept.SWFObjectUtil.getPlayerVersion().major;

if (window.top != window && browser.firefox() && version < 9) {

div = "needsFlash9Upgrade";

} else if (checkBrowser && browser.win() && browser.msie() && browser.version.number() < 5.5) {

div = "needsIEUpgrade";

} else if (version == 0 && window.ActiveXObject && !hasActiveX()) {

div = "needsActiveX";

} else if (version == 0) {

div = "needsFlashInstall";

} else if (version < MINIMUM_FLASH_VERSION) {

div = "needsFlashUpgrade";

} else if (location.search && location.search.match(/error=(w+)/)) {

div = RegExp.$1;

} else {

div = null;

}

if (div == null) {

// flash is installed. embed away.

is WAY beyone my understanding....

basically what I am getting is (with flash 9) pandora running, and a message in the "let's rip some mp3's" window a "host not found" type of message. otherwise i can not run pandora.

could someone please walk the non-uber tech savvy though this?!?

here's what I got so far:

no-script is installed

firefox2.0.0.1

pandora 7.4.0 extracted to c:pandora

a *.bat file with the following (I do know what and how a BAT file works)

cd c:pandora

start java -jar pandora.jar 8085

cd c:Program FilesMozilla Firefox

start firefox http://localhost:8085

I HAVE run the flash player uninstaller, and installed from the fp8_archive "flashplayer8r34_winax.exe"

I know I am a n00b to the forum, and don't deserve an intelligent response, but please... I have a great station of chill music that most of the songs are not in print or not available in the US or anywhere I live... stuff like Murcof - Remembranza and the like.

thanks for the help (please)

Try the greasemonkey script someone posted... Works fine!

From someone that doesn't really like Java and knows little about it, how exactly does one use a .js script like the one hal.hockersmith posted? I tried dropping it in the js folder of the PJ install, but that didn't do anything.

I'm sure it's something simple, but since I know nothing about JScript, a touch more info would be appreciated. :)

1) Java != JavaScript ;-)

2) GreaseMonkey is a FireFox extension: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ext...061017.0-fx.xpi

install it and then install the userscript (the .js file, either open it and click onto "install user script' or right-click onto the link of the js-file and select 'install user script'!

"untitled" or as I should say "blank" link ?!

wtf?

FK this it is too complex and has no chance of working on my end, or whatever. something in me says you are all lying about this shit. everything I have tried from this forum has not even come close to working. buncha bullshitters.

Sorry, that specifies the version of java I used, and its location on my box. I have multiple installations, for running programs that require or seem to prefer varying versions. The important part was the last 2 lines anyway ;)

ok mr' happypants... here's what i get when clicking on the aforementioned link IN firefox 2.0.0.1 (oh and see previous post by myself listing everything I have tried, I listed which browser I was using there too, but people like yourself don't care about reading and entire thread)

Ok, no catfight here, let's behave like two adults! ;-)

I just think it was a bit rude to call as all liars just because it is not yet working for you. And I think one shouldn't be rude if you expect others to help you...

But sorry that I made fun of you.

(And regarding the "people like yourself don't care about reading and entire thread"... I'm with PJ since the first alpha versions and I made the excperience that especially people that can't get PJ to run haven't read much of the posts here... ;) but enough self-defence now...)

The link is still working for me and normally, FireFox should install the extension without anything else to do... Try to go directly to http://greasemonkey.mozdev.org/ and click onto "2. Install Greasemonkey".

If you can get GM by no chance, try to open pandora.com in another tab and rip with PJ. Should work!

If that doesn't do the trick, I'm afraid I don't know what else you could try. Maybe someone else has got an idea!

thank for the response. I got grease monkey today, and now i can get it to work... using no-script, greasmonkey, and flash switcher... man what a PITA... I was suprised it is working thoug, as the artist and album details don't show up...

also, if i do the 2 tab thing, it rips the songs from the first tab, and i have to have both playing (which sounds terrible with 2 different songs at once).

also, if i choose to rate a song as "thumbs down" i have to restart, as it won't go to the next track.

thanks again, all is working now!

<EDIT> removing the pic now off my account, as you saw it , aand it is taking up valuable space (I'm always close to my limit lol)

Schmoe, something is extremely wrong with your setup.

for starters - why are you running both noscript and the greasemonkey solutions?

secondly - if you're using one of the above mentioned solutions - why are you still opening two tabs?

I'm not opening 2 tabs any more, it works with the 1 tab...

as fas as noscript, it is running, I keep it running all the time, and it has pandora blocked. whether it has to for it to work or not, i don't know.

personally I'm just glad I can finally get some of the music I have been listening too, and unable to purchase at radially available outlets.
