Good point. I suppose it depends whether we define 'emulator' and 'simulator' as being on the same continuum. If the emulator itself circumvents the security, I suppose I would indeed call it an emulator. But of course that makes it even harder to legally distribute...
Admittedly, some of those are Windows vs. Linux considerations which I've since discovered the reason for (auto-selecting the whole address kills the X Selection under Linux).
Heh--actually got the number right off the top of my head.
// clicking anywhere in the address bar or search bar selects entire entry (Windows default)
browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll = true
// backspace key functions as "Back" button
browser.backspace_action = 0
// scroll quickly by pressing scroll wheel straight down
general.autoScroll = true
// show "Save and Quit/Quit/Cancel" dialog instead of just "Close tabs/Cancel"
browser.showQuitWarning = true
// try to guess an incomplete url, don't run a search on it
keyword.enabled = false
// don't drop "http://"
browser.urlbar.trimURLs = false
// re-enable old Downloads window
browser.download.useToolkitUI = true
Well, the term 'emulator' in my mind suggests that it functions as close as possible to the original version, and DRM would be technically included in that. Obviously we wouldn't *want* it to, but...
Unfortunately all the license authentication and multiplayer servers will be down long before then...
How do you make a list without a first member? And Chrome is currently second.
There's a bug in v12 which resets your default search engine to Google and prevents you from reassigning the G search word.
No no, that's a feature! Totally.
Could be a psychological thing from having a horizontal tab bar. I have mine set to vertical, which also makes the tab titles waaaay more readable.
Pshh--with Tree-Style Tabs, I've had up to 600 open. Thank God Firefox no longer loads tabs until you switch to them
To be fair, Firefox does it the same way unless you set a master password.
Last I heard, Pidgin also refused to encrypt user passwords on security through obscurity grounds. Not sure how I feel about that.
I've never understood why people like the All-in-One. I much prefer the "classic" Firefox way (which you have to tinker in about:config to restore) where if I type e.g. "xkcd" in the address bar, it goes directly to http://www.xkcd.com./ If I want to search, I'll use the search bar, dammit! Now get off my lawn!
Granted, it took me a long time to find out that you can switch the selected search engine with Ctrl+Up/Down, but with that, Ctrl+K, and F6, I'm happy.
Yeah, I've got a list of about 7 about:config options to unfuck every time I install a new copy of Firefox too
Not a single new feature I've wanted or needed since 3.5 at the latest. Wish somebody would fork it.
So by this logic, do you blame every German citizen leading up to World War II? Every Soviet citizen during the Cold War?
What did he do there?
