To set files applications with standard xdg-open (man xdg-open): xdg-open /path/to/the_file.EXT I bet the sed command that Iphigeneia recalled should replace mimeapps.list associations entries with automatic xdg-open? Doesn't change any mimeapps.list lines here; Not an expert with sed to tell why, though. Some more pointers in ...

@grawity is almost correct, but he overlooked two details: After installing the .desktop file, you may need to manually run sudo update-desktop-database. (This may be done for you if you installed the .desktop file using xdg-desktop-menu install emacsclient.desktop) That was what was required to get my Firefox to display the "What should handle this ...

After trying the solutions already posted the problem was still occurring in my environment. A Google search directed to https://cdivilly.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/disable-firefox-redirecting-to-localhost-com/ This blog post suggested changing the browser.fixup.alternate.enabled property to false. This did the trick for me.

Ok, a friend was also experiencing the same issue and this apparently helped: Go to https://www.youtube.com/html5 Ensure MSE i.e. Media Source Extensions (required for MPEG-DASH i.e. adaptive streaming) and H.264/WebM are supported by your browser († see below for more). Also if you right click any video and select Stats for nerds you can see whether DASH ...

Where video support goes in Firefox it should at the time of writing be taken with a pinch of salt. Ive used firefox now and insist on installing it on all new machines I make as it is excellent at stopping junk getting through. As for your issues, video of any description requires that a codec be present to decode the video stream as it comes in, if this ...

Mozilla introduced the sharing functionality called Firefox for Desktop into Firefox 3x.0 and the icon can be pinned to toolbar by clicking Open Menu -> Customize -> Share this page.

I would recommend installing an add-on, firefox has so many awesome ones! Add-this is a good one, adds a quick way to share directly from firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/addthis/ There are lots of other options, so search and find one which suits your sharing style. Hope that helps! Good luck and may the force be with you. Nate

You could also use @silviot's method in a script: #!/bin/bash # # Show all chrome cached video files! # for ID in $( pgrep chrom ) ; do sudo ls -l /proc/$ID/fd|grep Pepper|cut -d' ' -f9|sed "s/\(.*\)/\/proc\/$ID\/\1/g" done | grep -v '^$' I have not tested this with more than 1 videos running, but it should work.

These two do the same as ESC in vim, so one (or both) might work for you: Ctrl + [ ctrl + c ...the latter of which I prefer to use over ESC. Hopefully your keybindings include them.

One reason is that it was very hard to limit to specific mechanisms. That is, allowing Negotiate means allowing everything that SPNEGO supports, which is usually Kerberos but also possibly NTLM. And while Kerberos is quite secure, letting any website to automatically talk NTLM is downright dangerous as it would send your Windows credentials in easily ...

I have the same problem. When I disable the plugin Tree Style Tab the setting is settable again. Re-enabling the plugin causes the unsettable broser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent.

This is caused by the integration with Google's safe-browsing features where it blocks certain file names that are considered to be dangerous - yes including .zip because the list is constantly up-to-date so sometimes certain .zip files can somehow be matched. For whatever reason certain free file hosting sites (which your friend may have used) have a ...

You didn't specified address structure of this log files. So, I expecting you are able to make loop generating log file address.

This is probably related to add-ons that are loaded into those other browsers, but not Chrome. A lot of adware gets bundled with legitimate software and installs its own bookmarks and add-ins into browsers, but since all browsers are different they have loaders for specific browsers and versions. It may be that you either installed Chrome after installing ...

You may install Customizable Shortcuts add-on for Firefox. Once the add-on is installed, a new tab will appear in the preferences window which allows you to remap/customize or disable most of the shortcuts offered by Firefox. Alternatively you can use Middle-click instead.

Why? Could be any number of reasons. The plugins (that need to parse web pages to extract links) need to be aware of the various tricks each site uses to hide the actual URLs and prevent users from downloading the videos. That's why when YouTube for example changes things at their end many of these video grabber plugins stop working till they're updated ...

I have used an SSH tunnel before, but now I use http://proxmate.dave.cx/ You can install the extension and then install the youtube plugin and it will automatically proxy while watching youtube but all other traffic will be direct. This is easier for me, but may not be what you want.

I completely understand why it is beneficial to cache redirects in 99% of situations, but is there anyway to disable that behavior? Well, if you are doing this from a web server development standpoint, then expecting browser “cache at all costs” behavior to be altered for your “endless development tweaking” needs is the wrong way to attack this beast. ...

There may be two ways to accomplish this: PortableApps To handle this I prefer to use the "Portable" version. You can set it up in different dirs for as many instances you want. Download here.

As far as I know some countries manipulate with DNS table. By default Firefox uses regular DNS - not the proxy one. Go to about:config and set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true.

Not the worst thing that could happen to you as a result of bundleware/adware... But yes, annoying. Try using CCleaner to uninstall the toolbar and any associated applications, as well as the browser helpers/extensions that it might have added. (See the "Tools / Startup" section of CCleaner for the latter.) If that all fails, try HijackThis, a powerful ...

Sounds like you need EFF's HTTPS Everywhere plugin. Or if you are running a server, you could serve a Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=31536000 header over HTTPS. That would force browsers to use HTTPS for that server for the next year.

If you want to close the window manually, and if you use a browser that allows popups from JavaScript, then you could use a JavaScript solution. Limited by same-domain security policies, this needs an ugly timer to see if the child window is meanwhile closed. Also note that opening the first window will be fine, as that is (eventually) triggered by you ...
