comment Is there a method to export the URLs of the open tabs of a Firefox window?
Nice answer. Alt+E+N+C for any other Linux users. :)

comment How to adjust the screen resolution in Debian?
It might help if you give versions of all the software you're using. Have you tried using amdCCCle with the proprietary drivers installed to tweak settings?

comment Gtx 770 crashing when opening games
Oh lordy no, I don't use skype. Add your images to imgur.com (or some other image hosting site) and edit your question to include the links. You also may do better with asking the question on a forum that encourages troubleshooting...SuperUser (and StackExchange sites in general) do not encourage long drawn out conversations...

If you can't get another machine to try it out in, can you get access to another nVidia card to try in your machine?

comment Disabling browsing ads using Flash only
I know Draka, that was just an example. Sure it's only one click the first time, but it's for nearly every site you visit, which was my point. The NoScript FAQ shows that the default whitelist is tiny: noscript.net/faq#qa1_5

comment Disabling browsing ads using Flash only
I can only speak for myself, but almost every site I need to whitelist (superuser.com and sstatic.net being two apropos examples). :)

comment Disabling browsing ads using Flash only
Yes, on big well-known sites. The vast majority of sites you need to whitelist yourself (in my experience anyway).

Yeah, +1 for NoScript. Just an all-round handy tool for things other than Flash too.

comment Can Conky remain always visible alongside other windows?
Thanks @terdon. I have own_window_type normal still in my conkyrc, changing the hints to include "above" was the trick that did it for me!

comment New Build, asrock h87,-itx no video output
Okay, I'm starting to run out of suggestions. Maybe reset the CMOS (unplug PSU, pull motherboard battery out for a couple of minutes). That sometimes fixes things. Is the PSU new? Do you have an alternate power supply you could try? Starting to think one of the new parts may be DOA...

comment New Build, asrock h87,-itx no video output
I take it you don't get any video at all -- not even the post screen? Do the fans spin up? Has the motherboard been mounted on the risers (no chance of shorting against the case?). Is RAM seated properly (firmly clicked in place)? Unplug all USB/SATA/PCIe devices (if there are any) and see if you can get to post.

Hmm...yeah, the board doesn't seem to have an internal speaker connector. :(

comment New Build, asrock h87,-itx no video output
What is the power supply make/model? Are all parts new? Is the 4-pin power connector on the motherboard (near the CPU) connected, as well as the 24-pin? Is the CPU fan plugged into the CPU_FAN connector? Can you put a (clear) pic of your setup on imgur and link to it? If your case came with an onboard speaker, plug that it so you can hear any error beeps while the machine is booting.

comment USB keyboards keep disconnecting and reconnecting
When you say "built a whole new box", was it all completely different parts (that is, did you reuse, say, the motherboard?). Does the problem occur when running from a Linux Live distro (wasn't quite clear what "installing a different OS" means)?

comment How can I smb share a Windows folder so it is accessible to Linux machines?
What distro are you running? In *buntus, the file managers tend to come with "connect to network" option where the shares on Windows machine show up automatically.

comment Allow only certain fonts in Firefox
Such a feature would also be a great privacy feature if it allowed you to choose the list of fonts JS could discover (as per Why is there so much information in the font list? from the Panopticlick FAQ: panopticlick.eff.org/faq.php)

comment Is this a graphics card failure?
Yeah, doesn't sound good Alexander. It is pretty unlikely that both RAM sticks would fail at once -- if you want to confirm though before buying a new mobo, try one of them in a different computer.

comment Is there a way to tell which display manager by Linux desktop is running?
Try grepping for /usr/bin/X, that may include the DM in its command-line. Also, this may help: askubuntu.com/questions/72549/…
