comment Make Firefox go to URL based on current URL
FYI, my bookmarklet replaces all characters up to the first occurrence of "://" (i.e. non-greedy) with "http: //translate.yandex.net/tr-url/ru-de.de/" (space added to avoid linkifying) so works with other protocols: https, ftp etc. Just modify as needed :-)

comment How to go to the bottom of the file on startup in Notepad++
Notepad++ (5.8.6 at least) has an annoying bug which scrolls to the physical line (as determined by newline characters) without taking into account the number of lines shown onscreen. If word wrap is enabled and any of the lines above this line wrap, it can be pushed offscreen, even though the cursor is at the right place.

comment Software that can identify and remove foreground objects from image
This is a great question for the Photography SE! A practical use would be to set up a camera on a tripod at a busy tourist attraction and take multiple shots while people move around, then stitch all the empty areas to show the place without the madding crowd.

comment From a quality perspective, what is better: turning volume up in the software, in the OS, or on the speakers?
Quite true in the general case, but Qqwy's question asks more about software vs hardware volume control.

comment From a quality perspective, what is better: turning volume up in the software, in the OS, or on the speakers?
@DanielBeck: In general, it's not recommended increasing volume above 100% unless you know the sound won't saturate (waveform won't clip, but that's hard to tell without a program to show the waveform, such as Audacity) or don't care about it (some sounds e.g. explosions and gunfire in games/movies when clipped don't actually sound worse to me).

comment Notepad++ Changebar
Thanks, and you're welcome! FYI, I found a very frustrating incompatibility with the Compare plugin: Each time I do a compare, the marking method changes to highlighting the entire line, whereas I prefer to mark changes with a rectangle (or "changebar", as in Change Markers). Worse, selecting "Mark with rect" does not fix it; I need to select a different method, e.g. "Mark with circle" then reselect "Mark with rect".

comment Change “Send to” or “Rotate counterclockwise” accelerator key in Win 7 Explorer context menu
Thanks, Karan. It works, and has given me new opportunities to customise my context menus, though it involves installing extra software. I'll mark it as the correct answer if noone else has any answers.

comment Use Notepad++ to change under_score_case to CamelCase?
One caveat: If the second and subsequent character in each word is an uppercase letter, it is made lowercase, e.g. ALL_CAPS becomes allCaps.

comment How to get a bookmarks list?
That's right, Daniel. After not getting any answers, I tried writing my own plugin, but didn't get far. The Notepad++ source code header file Notepad_plus.h has a function bool bookmarkPresent(int lineno) which uses ScintillaEditView *_pEditView which I couldn't find a way to access from my plugin.

comment How to set related parentheses with same color but different with other parentheses in notepad++?
Do you mean that they are coloured at all times, or only when the cursor is on them (as in Notepad++ 5.8.6)?

comment How to 'code collapse' wiki syntax on Notepad++ (or any other text editor)?
The Folder collapsing syntax in User-Defined Language is rather primitive and works by identifying particular strings for the open and close. I doubt it can actually count the number of "=".
