comment How to enable the bookmarks toolbar in Pentadactyl/Firefox?
You need to use set guioptions+=B, otherwise you will replace the current setting instead of appending to it. The default setting is bCrs, which means show bottom scrollbar, always show command line (outside of status line), right scrollbar, and status bar.

comment How to exclude files(not folders) from dropbox sync?
On both Linux and Windows, symlinked folders or files are synchronized just like regular files (i.e. the symlink's target is copied, not the symlink itself), so this workaround doesn't seem to work any more. Tested with Dropbox 2.0.22 on W7 and 2.0.26 on Linux.

The downside being that you cannot have several Firefox windows open any more.

comment Can I mount a Linux-formatted VMWare disk image from Windows?
It works here (W7 x64) with VMWare's mount utility and the ext2 driver service of ext2fsd. It will likely work with the driver from fs-driver.org as well (not tested).

comment How to mount an ext3 VMware Virtual Disk Image (vmdk)
Sorry, just noticed you were using XP. My comment "it works here" referred to W7 x64 (and also a later ext2fsd version given how old the question is). Tech is slowly getting better...

comment How to mount an ext3 VMware Virtual Disk Image (vmdk)
It works here. You just have to make sure the ext2fsd driver service is started. Starting the Ext2 Volume Manager does not automatically start the service, you may have to start it manually in Tools/Service Management depending on the settings chosen during setup.
