comment Accept Cookie by Name
Having accepted this: Have you written/found such a script meanwhile, and maybe would make it public? I'm interested in the very same topic, just the other way around: having discovered that some proxies "inject" cookies (which they claim to come from the visited site, google for "BCSI-CS- cookie" for details), I want to automatically reject those.

comment How to build RPM from SVN?
I just notice I forgot the disclosure: I'm the dev of said framework, and author of the linked article. Though that might have been guessed from the name and my nick already, it's custom to explicitly state it. Better late than never ;)

comment Distinction between active/inactive windows (titlebars) with Windows 7 Aero
Unfortunately, that site requires an account to download attachments. I'd like to try one of the solutions from there, but am not willing to provide any personal data just for a simple download. Is it possible to have those "themes" (the "Glutton" one looks promising) downloadable via a non-barred site?

comment How to control websites' use of localStorage in Firefox?
Thank you for the details explained! I'm using Cookie Controller for a while now, and am quite satisfied with it :) Flash-Cookies I still handle with BetterPrivacy; this is the only thing missing for an all-in-one solution. But the two have no problems with each other, so it's working fine for me.

comment Compose key on Windows
Yeah. But I rather like my keyboard behaving the same as on my own Linux machine :) Besides, WinCompose has some other neat features, like "early exits" when there will be no matching composition.

comment Compose key on Windows
@Khaur I also used AllChars until today. Since I started using it, I sometimes noticed some strange behaviour (e.g. my keyboard was reacting strangely, as if inverting/messing up CAPS, and other things). After Sam's comment, I now gave WinCompose another try. Seems to work like a charm! No extra gimmicks (like macros etc), but I wasn't after gimmicks anyway :) Give me a few more days of testing before I update my answer, but currently WinCompose seems to be the first choice!

comment Compose key on Windows
Ah, there comes the disclosure :) Thanks, Sam, will do. As I indicated, while AllChars does work for me currently, I'm not fully satisfied with it either. WinCompose especially sounds promising as (according to its project page) it uses standard compose sequences, which means no more messing up when switching between Linux and Windows ;)

So you say I should give it another try? I'm currently using AllChars, which does its job (though I miss some customization possibilities).

comment How to control websites' use of localStorage in Firefox?
Thanks. So it looks like it shares the same privacy concerns with the Flash cookies: without technical background the user has absolutely no control over it, and with technical background only limited control in "post-processing". I was afraid of that, you and the linked article confirm it. So maybe we need to raise the issue in some Bugzilla ticket for Firefox.
