Unfortunately no longer maintained and not compatible with latest versions of Firefox.

comment Filetype shortcuts in vim
Mainly you know for sure that your mappings will be defined after all the system stuff has been sourced, so yours can override the system stuff where necessary. If you use an autocmd there's no guarantee it will happen in that order (and, in fact, probably won't).

Or just use ":retab" in Vim.

That is how it will show up, yes. It should be working when you press alt-k;

In the vimrc it doesn't matter. Use them or not, according to your preference.

I don't know, since it works for me. Those lines--exactly as they are displayed here--should work in your vimrc.

comment Vim causing auto compile on file write
I assumed it would be triggering post-write, but it might be triggering pre-write, so I updated my answer. Also, it's possible it wasn't actually running ":make", but since I don't know what the alternative would be, I left that part.

comment Play/pause pandora.com with a media key
Forgive me, but I'm confused. I'm aware it does support media keys; that's why I installed it.

Another note: It lets you skip ads! Just press the >> button on your keyboard.

comment How to change the way that vim displays collapsed/folded lines
After looking at ":help fold-foldtext" I don't think what you want is possible without patching the Vim core code.

comment After “:set paste” executed “insert mode's remaps” stop working - VIM (iTerm2)
'paste' is not meant to be a permanent setting because it prevents mappings from working, among other things. For an easy way to toggle the option, see :help 'pastetoggle'

comment Vim: How to highlight every second line?
I apologize, but the only way I can think of doing it is very messy. Basically you'd have to define a syntax rule for every other buffer line.

comment Vim: How to highlight every second line?
Do you mean visual rows, or file lines? If the former, Vim doesn't support it. If the latter, it can probably be done, but how do you want to handle blank lines?

This works well for me, thank you. Just an FYI for others: This does use Internet Explorer.

comment Using vim with Putty results in X server error
@KhongSon : There's no way for us to know. I'm guessing that putty is trying, and failing to set up X forwarding.

comment Using vim with Putty results in X server error
@zagrimsan I'm sorry to have to contradict you, but Vim absolutely requires X server access in many circumstances. Most notably for the GUI, but even the console Vim can try to contact the X server for a number of things, such as handling X11 selection events, clientserver, etc.
