Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Joomla

For some reason this question (from Oct 2010) has more recently been deleted but was still available on stackprinter.com. I had the accepted answer and was looking high and low for it to use as reference on another question.

comment Firefox right-click: easy support for the Firefox or the site's menu?
What do you mean "it does not override it"? If you right-click anywhere in the navigation area on the left on NewsBlur you get the green popup menu, you do not get the browsers default context menu, it has therefore been overridden. (Unless you have specifically unchecked the option in Firefox to prevent such behaviour.)

"This is just a drop down menu that's activated with right-clicking." - Yes, but in doing so it has overridden the applications default context menu (which is also opened by right clicking). It only opens at the mouse's location if the developer has specifically programmed it to do so.

-1 It works properly, but there IS a custom (context) menu on NewsBlur. The (green) menu shown in the picture is a drop down menu AND is also available as a right-mouse context menu, overriding the default. This is using FF8 with default settings (which permits scripts to replace context menus - the right mouse onclick event). IMO NewsBlur should not be overriding the context menu in this instance, since the same menu is already available via the drop down. Google Docs also has a context menu when in the document itself.

Disabling the context menu entirely was popular some years ago in an attempt to prevent users from viewing the source of the page or saving images from the website - but is considered bad practise, and doesn't really stop the user anyway.

Ah OK thanks. The default option appears to be to "Allow scripts to... disable or replace context menus"

Where is the option to enable/disable this feature? Or do you actually have to navigate to a website that attempts to override the right-click context menu?

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
@blunders: Well, this may be a matter of opinion, but I would have said that sending emails from your own domain would be more 'professional' than "name@gmail.com", which is essentially a disposable email address. In my opinion you would use a gmail address if you don't have your own domain. Not a domain like "z3", but what about your full name? eg. contact@yourfullname.me - may be .me since it is for personal correspondence? Btw... I use gmail, but I use my domains email address, which gmail allows you to do. (I've updated my answer regarding Thunderbird)

comment Show download bar in Google Chrome
@HaydnWVN: That is the downloads 'page' (the same as hitting CTRL+J as mentioned in the question). The downloads 'bar' appears at the bottom of the window to show current downloads only.

comment Show download bar in Google Chrome
I'm running Chrome 15.0.874.121 (WinXP) and the download bar appears whenever I download a file. I see no option to change this behaviour. Have you tried downloading different file types? I wonder if certain file types are set to 'always open'? What if you right-mouse on a download link and select 'Save link as...'?

comment Using Gmail as mail client for an ISP account
It should be transparent to your customer, providing the address is set as the default, but it's not quite transparent to the recipient since the @gmail address is still present in the email headers and depending on the recipients email client, this might be reported as From <gmailuser>@gmail.com on behalf of <Senders Name> (<username>@telus.net) - but I don't think this can be avoided, unless perhaps you are using Google Apps as @Dave suggests?

comment If I open explorer.exe first, then run cmd.exe, the init path for cmd.exe would be same with current path in explorer.exe
When I run cmd.exe the directory is set to my current user directory (C:\Documents and Settings\User) - presumably this is currently the same for you on your home machine?

comment How to extract specific rows from a sheet in excel?
Are you able to sort the sheet by this column? Although, since it looks like a text field (combined text and date) this might not work to sort in order of date?

comment What's the difference between “shutting down the computer” vs “shutting down the hard disk”?
@Pacerier: If you open or save files or view the directory structure in explorer for instance then the hard drives will spin up. However, some applications might save temporary files in the background and Windows itself will perform certain disk maintenance tasks in the background, so whether the drives remain 'off' whilst you are actively using the machine might be dependent on other factors.
