Hi, On my previous computer, I had cool feature on my Firefox working on en.Wikipedia. When I moved mouse coursor over link, automatically window appear with content of that link. Link was to wikipedia. This windows was realy cool, cause I could move it, or click "more" so more content was displayed on this window. I could display few such windows on one page I was currently. I could move each where ever I wounted. So beeing on one page on en.wikipedia I could see explanation of words used in this page, also used from wikipedia, just moving over this word, which was link, and I could display few such windows, that I could move through whole page.

I used older version of Firefox, on different computer, on Windows Vista laptop. I searched for such plugin, but I couldn't find it. I find one kind a similar, QuickWiki, but much simpler, and much less functional.

I don't know how to find it. It was valuable tool for me. I used a lot of Wiki. Using this tool my job was much easier, as I didn't have to go to new page each time I wan't to check meaning of that word.

Please, help me if you know what to do or what tool to use.

Best regards, Artur

Maybe this has asked before, I already checked some older posts, but didn't find exactly the same type of font rendering I have.

The thing is that on some websites (some only, and rarely) I get these funny looking fonts, they are not like symbols or just gibberish, it can be read and understood like normal characters but I perfectly know something is not right, I will post 2 screenshots for you to see:

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B89XHw6WcgFvZ0ZFTjRMd2cybFU and https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B89XHw6WcgFvU0pacy1kdFIzWEk


So my thoughts are that I'm probably missing some font or misconfigured setting. I have tried disabling the "Allow websites choose their own fonts..." settings with success, but I do want to leave that option enabled, so what to do?

NOTE: I am on Debian Linux using latest firefox from official website.

Thanks

Top bottom page hotkeys not working properly

I have noticed this for quite some time now, but the "top of page" (Home) and "bottom of page" (End) hotkeys don't work properly anymore.

Sometimes it works as expected.

Sometimes, it only change the line the cursor is pointing to (despite not being in a modifiable area), and I need to use Ctrl+Home / Ctrl+End to make it works (ie: the official firefox hotkeys help page)

Sometimes, none of this works (on forums most of the times).

Is there some settings to make it work like old firefox (as I said, that issue is going on for quite some time now so I don't know which version was working correctly)

The problem is when site provides you with "Wiki translation" service. If I point cursor on the line the site shows in an floating window the translation of a string or it's original. It's very annoying service! I may turn it off by not allowing scripts in browser, but I need them (scripts playing) on the other tabs!...

Is there any other way to stop this function.

The question is a little abstract so let me explain.

Suppose I make a webpage solely for offline use, say an Image Viewer so that users can view their photos full screen.

The user has the option to either select files or drag n drop files https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Using_files_from_web_applications

The files are then iteratively stored in IndexedDB.

When the user closes the browser and comes back the next day and opens up the webpage, the images are automatically loaded instead of having the user select the images again.

The problem comes when the user first uploads the images. Some images might have the same name.

Do I have to check if the 'key' already exists in the DB before hand or can I store the file path of the images in the DB as the key?

Hello: I recently discovered about:about, about:config, and i love these hidden bits of info. But i will forget about them... (as im just not a technical so i dont remember stuff like that) --- please note: I dont want to add to bookmark as i will even forget there as i have 100s.... and these are classed as firefox things for me... so not in my bookmarks (my bookmarks are my things v technical ffox things) --- similar to PageInfo option that is provided under Tools menu


So i would like to add to my Menubar Tools/About:About Toolbs/About:Config and Tools/Customerise Toolbars (rather than right clicking in grey space between icons on the toolbar)


is it possible? if so, how do i?
