firefox shipped with SuSE Linux 11.3 opens a new window upon shift-(left-)-click. The old behavior was to trigger "save file". I'd like to get the old behavior back. There is no such option in the "edit preferences" (why?). Also the site http://www.7is7.com/software/firefox/shortcuts.html simply lists key-bindings and is of NO help here.

Is it possible to have the search bar not go directly to a search engine when you enter a website into it?

I do not like how every time I search something it sends me to a search engine website, like Google. I just want to go to the website that I typed in. For example, if I type in facebook.com it will send me to whatever results come up on Google. I just want to go to Facebook. Because of this, I am not able to link websites to my friends, because in the URL box it only shows the last thing I searched/typed in into that box. So my question is, is there a way to disable this search engine option?

1) Why does plugin container eat 56% of my processor power doing nothing except increase global CO2 emissions, wearing out my cooling fan and more to the point, making me annoyed. 2) I can no longer print maps from Google Maps. 3) Can anyone recommend a decent browser? Mozilla are morphing into an evil twin of another large and well known software house.
