comment How to change the opacity of the firefox bookmarks toolbar?
Tuning the userChrome.css as shown does not work; the opacity makes the text disappear. It seems my theme (Aurora Australis) suffers from the first bug. I'll accept, since I now know that it's not something I have messed with and should wait for the bug to be fixed in firefox (or the theme). Thanks!

comment Why are console capabilities stuck in the seventies?
@g2mk I know all this. I do use xterm in 256 color mode with zsh. But you'll get that only under X11. My question is: why is the VGA console so colour-crippled? Why has it not been addressed in the past decades?

comment Why are console capabilities stuck in the seventies?
@MátéJuhász I fail to see where opinion comes into play (other than my own that 16 colors is pitiful). There must be a technical reason and that's the answer I'm looking for.

That link seems to refer to terminal emulators, like xterm in 256 color mode. The question is: can I get 256 colors on a console (No X11, no frame buffer), in say FreeBSD?

comment How do I figure out a root cause of a zombie process?
Then the process Z may have exited because it could no longer communicate with the process K you killed. But the parent of Z did not expect to collect an exit status this early with wait() and thus Z became a zombie.

Do you know which process (program binary) it was?

comment How to fine-tune TTF rendering in xterm?
@koniiiik This could be due to different ./configure options being used. I always compile xterm from source (my screenshots are from xterm-314). There are a few freetype-related configure options you can play around with. I used the defaults for those (i.e. did not use --disable-freetype). I'm on FreeBSD 10 and 11.
