I'm not sure myself, having not used the firefox one, but BloodPhilia may be able to provide some insight there. Or, just try it out and see ;)

comment Use laptop with wireless to connect desktop without wireless to the Internet
I agree that a hardware bridge would be a much more practical solution, if the poster can afford to get one.

Agreed with @heavyd -- I've heard nothing of this sort. Could you provide a screenshot, or clarify your description? Are you sure you aren't seeing something caused by some sort of malware?

comment sharing browsing session and history over multiple machines
Whoa, I actually didn't see your answer. I knew about Chrome Sync because I use it, and then after I'd posted it, thought "hm, I bet there's a firefox addon to do this, I'll go look", so I checked on addons.mozilla.org, and there it was. I guess I was reading your mind/you were reading mine and we just didn't realize it :P +1 to you for accidental brain reading ;)

comment Can I move Ubuntu vmware installation to a new laptop?
To clarify, are you trying to move the VM installation to be the main OS on the new computer, or just move it over to a VM on the new computer?

comment Whats the deal with these new lower clock speed CPUs on Laptops? Can they still run apps well?
Keep in mind that for gaming, most of the work is done by the GPU, not the CPU, so you could potentially play a game with high end graphics on a low-clocked CPU like one of the CULV processors and still get good performance if you have a dedicated GPU.
