It seems to be on a video by video basis. Your 'create a spaceship' tutorial will buffer when paused, but your 'create a city' tutorial will not. They seem to use slightly different players; based on the right-click menus. The spaceship tutorial mentions HTML5 and the city tutorial has the standard Flash menu. You could try forcing the use of a different ...

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Classic Home link, in the bottom-left corner. When you click on iGoogle, it sets a cookie so it can automatically redirect you to the iGoogle page. You can get rid of it by removing the cookies as well.

Most likely the content is built dynamically using client-side JavaScript. As such, saving the page won't help you, because the initial HTML to build the page doesn't have that information. A fact of life in this post Web 2.0 world. You might be able to print the page. If so, you can print it to a PDF using one of the many "print to PDF" utilities out there....

Click on a tab on one side, hold shift and click the tab on the other side. You now have all of them selected and can simply drag the tabs onto the tab bar of the other window. This also allows you to close multiple tabs at once, when they are all selected.

It's going to depend on how each application has implemented Google's API for user authentication. Most likely there's some Websocket or AJAX calls going on in the background polling Google to see if you're logged on. When it finds that you're not the calling app changes your status.

I found a solution which is to change the resolution after buffering stops and return to the changed resolution. This way it will buffer till the end.

You should generally be clicking on the site logo rather than hitting the reload button. In almost every browser, the reload button will invalidate locally cached copies of everything on the page (including images, CSS, and plenty of other static content that won't have changed). This will cause unnecessary load on the site (or, if they are lucky, some ...

This is not possible in the current version of Google+/the app.

You can mute a channel. Then you will no longer receive any notifications for that channel incl. the asterix for new messages. To mute a channel open it, click on the cog and then choose "Mute XXX".

Do Not Track Me and Disconnect are similar browser extension tools to Ghostery. They will show you trackers on each web page in the browser, and let you block them. Other useful tools are ad blockers (not that the ads per se are a problem, but the tracking that comes with them is), and JavaScript blockers like NoScript (or JavaScript Blocker in Safari). ...

I'm afraid you can't. Google Talk is completely dead.

You can use Tab Modifier to change the Icon to a permanent Icon that won't change when receiving messages. Just add the rule for your slack and change the icon, then refresh the slack page. Maybe a bit overkill of a solution, but it works.

You aren't alone in this request, however it isn't possible at this time. The Slack Twitter account responded to this question only last month: Ah, it is unfortunately not possible to disable favicon auto update or mute direct messages. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. 🐻 - @SlackHQ https://twitter.com/SlackHQ/status/1053219986741833728

I was able to solve this by upgrading again to Firefox 49.x.

Ghostery is a (but certainly not the only) browser extension that alerts you to certain trackers/companies as you surf online. Ghostery tracks over 1,400 trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity. I use it both to block tracking and as an alert ...

So long as your OS sees your monitors as two, distinct screens I don't think a browser plugin will be able to (effectively) split the video and project the separate halves on separate screens in sync. What OS and video card are you using? Display adapters like the Matrox DualHead2Go Digital or the AMD Eyefinity will create a single display from your ...

There is a Firefox add-on called Collusion that will also show you who is tracking you and what site they are tied to.
