The lid/screen of your laptop is triggering your trackpad which is causing the phantom movements. Try using a thin piece of cardboard to keep the screen slightly open (1-2mm) while the lid is closed to see if the movements disappear. Dell xps laptop by any chance? I've had a few that exhibited this same behavior.

I am running Ubuntu 12.04 and had the same problem. After removing all 70-something configs from /etc/fonts/conf.d and linking 70-no-bitmaps.conf -> ../conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf and checking, that the selectfont element in the xml was not commented out and looked like this my fonts render nicely again. <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE ...

Although they have edit the Chrome version for Android too, the search is displayed instead of the URL for that page and similar thing would have happened here too. Actually this annoying thing is a part of their User Experience, so I don't think from 36version onwards you'll be using the Google web page's search on Chrome. If you want to do so, you'll ...

Apparently, this behavior is caused by Chrome sending the special GET parameter &espv=101 in the URL. You should be able to fix it by simply removing the parameter (along with all the other junk that Chrome sends by default): Right-click the Omnibar Select Edit search engines… Select Google (Default) and click [Edit] (or just double-click it) Replace ...

You cannot filter out console errors (in red) using the filter option. Your best option is to either wait for an update of the extension which solves the problem, or find an alternative extension that does the same thing, or manually download the extension, unpack it, change the code that causes the error, then pack it back and install it.

The best way to do it is this little workaround: Right click with your mouse inside the visble area of the web-page somehwhere. A context menu should appear, select "view page source". A completely new browser tab will open and in the address bar of this new tab you can see the URL that you are looking for. Just omit the first part of it which says ...

If you click "Warn before Quitting" in the Chrome menu on Mac it'll do the trick. It'll make you hold command + Q to quit. Not sure on PC. This was huge for me because closing a tab, command + W is right next to close the whole freaking browser command + Q. Made that mistake too many times!

It appears that someone may have finally figured out how to replicate the original behavior you have been hoping for. By disabling the embedded PDF viewer plugin (bear with me), and then adding PDF.JS, you will have the option of opening a PDF inside Chrom{e,ium} or with the external viewer. The behavior sounds as though it will follow the original behavior: ...

Well, Google must have chosen to implement the necessary writing to PDF format (or embed an third-party implementation into Chrome) while the other browser makers have not -- and possible would prefer (in the case of Microsoft), that we buy something or that we use another format like MS's XPS format.So I would say: commercial decision.

It's about whether or not the product team sees implementation and support of PDF printing as having a sufficiently low cost/benefit (or high benefit/cost) ratio to be worth the opportunity cost of not implementing some other feature. Counter-examples to licensing and technology being the hurdles would be that Opera and Firefox can print to PDF. Firefox ...
