comment Can I switch the User-Agent header for only a single web site?
I agree with you that it would be a nice bonus, but it probably is hard to implement and might be confusing for many users. Regarding your search issue: Would webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/6809/… be an acceptable alternative? Another way would be to use some country-code domain for searching, e.g. google.ch.

comment Can I switch the User-Agent header for only a single web site?
It looks like you are able to apply specific rules for subdomains, so the answer to your questions depends on the definition of "site". Anyway, trying to match 'google.com/search' would require path matching which is out of scope for both site and domain matching. There might be another solution that fits your needs in this case, but it depends on what you are trying to achieve.

comment Change Google Search URL in Firefox's “Search Google for..” context menu
The question is about context menu searches, not keyword searches from the address bar.

No, you cannot modify your search engines through settings from about:config, but ... Yes, you can modify them without any add-on since you just have to add/create/edit a search plugin. A source for plugins is already mentioned in my previous answer. To modify plugins, edit the xml files in your searchplugins directory in your Firefox profile. See support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/… an/or developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/… for more information.

comment Thunderbird forwarding drafts
Create a new draft, save it and check all your folders. You should be able to locate the new draft in one of them. You could also go to Tools | Account Settings | <account name> | Copies & Folders to find out where Thunderbird saves (or at least should save) drafts.

Do you store your drafts in the Inbox folder? Or maybe a subfolder?

@Robert Yes, this would delete all your mail and settings so I cannot recommend these steps. Jonathan Reno should have put in a warning at least. The use of Revo Uninstaller is questionable also.

comment How to change Google Chromes default fallback Favicon
While your assumption could indeed explain the seen behavior, I can not reproduce this behavior by repeating your steps with exactly the same version on Windows XP using a brand new Chrome profile. I guess, most users will be unable to reproduce this, because otherwise the problem (being known since at least april 2012) would have likely been addressed by Google in the meantime. It would be interesting if you can reproduce this with a fresh profile (and also on a system without any software interfering with HTTP connections).

comment How to change Google Chromes default fallback Favicon
Just because you can reproduce a behavior, it is not necessarily correct. Also I don't see any logic in showing a misleading icon. Especially in a browser from Google, since they would certainly not use their own brand on foreign sites intentionally. Also I cannot reproduce this behavior in the current Chrome version with default settings. So I guess this unexpected behavior is caused by a (probably broken) extension or some other software. Maybe a anti-virus software or some external filter for HTTP content?

comment Windows doesn't recognize Ubuntu DVD
While booting Ubuntu from CD(?), press any key and chose Check CD for defects from the menu to make sure that the disc is correctly readable by your drive. See help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/CDIntegrityCheck for more details.

comment Windows doesn't recognize Ubuntu DVD
This is an additional feature for the LiveUSB system which does not exist for the normal live CD. While this in fact allows you to make permanent changes in the configuration of the live system, it does not prevent you from installing Ubuntu from that system, so I don't really get your point. If you don't need this feature, just don't use it.

comment Windows doesn't recognize Ubuntu DVD
I dont't understand what kind of problem you expect when using UNetbootin. Installing (and not just booting) from media created with UNetbootin will give the same result than with installing from DVD/CD. This includes the ability to select another OS to boot from GRUB. You might want to read sourceforge.net/apps/trac/unetbootin/wiki/howitworks to find out the precise meaning of "frugal install" in this context.

comment Changing the Owner of a folder back to SYSTEM
Being the owner of a file system object always allows you to change permissions on that object, even if you do not have the explicit right to change permissions for that object. This is why you had to become the owner of the junction point to change the permissions.
