comment sudo vs gksudo. difference?
I want to emphasize that this is not the crucial difference at all, and this answer is quite misleading to newbies. The major difference is explained here: askubuntu.com/a/11766/81034 and the answer below (that @johnywhy linked to) goes a step beyond that to add some nuance to that. Please read the askubuntu question rather than relying on this misleading answer.

comment Unblocking at element-level in uBlock Origin
@rhill I understand, but the usability hit still exists and I'm just trying to decide whether this tradeoff between usabilty and performance is worth it to me. Btw, does ABP then automatically log every network request that happens, to be able to present that UI? (Of course, that inefficiency might be lost among the many other major inefficiencies in the case of ABP, but I still would like to understand this.)

And for anyone else wondering if this helps with the unblocking of elements too: github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/The-logger#creating-filters takes you to a UI where you can adjust the dynamic filters at various levels, or create a static filter if you want patterns and suchlike.

comment Unblocking at element-level in uBlock Origin
Hmm. So it looks like it begins logging only after it's opened: so I either have to keep the logger open at all times to use this feature, or have to open it and then reload the page (which might not always be feasible). I keep running into these UI issues with uBlock, so with the ABP performance patch coming in this month, I might just go back to the more usable ABP.

comment tcplay: cannot write to mounted volume
Hi! Thanks a lot for this answer, amidst all the mega truecrypt-replacement software out there, this simple script worked most reliably for me. I've added this as a github repo (with credits), hope you don't mind: github.com/digital-carver/tcmount

comment Copying unicode symbols from Firefox address bar as is
For the record for future visitors, setting network.standard-url.escape-utf8 to false does seem to work as of FF40.

comment Vim: map shift-K to open help on current word in a new tab
@bertieb No specific reason except the assumption that, with a larger userbase, there might be more probability of getting an answer here. It has turned out my question contained two parts, so I'll now take the unanswered part over to Vi and Vim and try it out there.

remove the parts about keywordprg, to split that into a separate question

comment Vim: map shift-K to open help on current word in a new tab
What I wanted was a way to take this whole thing and just add the feature of opening the output in a new tab. Your execute idea did help me make this work just for vim keywords at least, so I'll accept your answer and split the question about making this portable for any value of keywordprg a separate question (since that looks to be a more complicated requirement).

comment Vim: map shift-K to open help on current word in a new tab
"<s-k>, also known as K, opens the man page" <- This is actually incorrect: it opens whatever the current keywordprg program is, depending on the filetype; its default is man, but the keywordprg automatically changes to :help when in a vimscript file, and can be set to for eg. perldoc -f for filetype perl, to automatically get perldoc help within Perl files when K is pressed.
