I love the Open PTTL firefox extension, but recently upgraded to Firefox 3.5. One of the add-ons which broke was the “Plain Text to Link” addon. I took a look at the Mozilla Addons page and this is the author’s only extension. And it hasn’t been updated since July 2008. I took a quick look at the code and it seemed pretty simple – and it looks like everything will work fine with Firefox 3, so I’ve edited the install requirements to allow installing on up to Firefox 3.5.* The old extension file was named plain_text_to_link-1.5.20080618-fx.xpi I’ve called the new one plain_text_to_link-1.6.20100125-fx.xpi You probably need to download it to your computer and then drag the xpi file on top of firefox to install :)
clipped from en.wikipedia.org The world’s first neutrino observation in a hydrogen bubble chamber was found Nov. 13, 1970, on this historical photograph from the Zero Gradient Synchrotron’s 12-foot bubble chamber. The invisible neutrino strikes a proton where three particle tracks originate (right). The neutrino turns into a muon, the long center track. The short track is the proton. The third track is a pi-meson created by the collision.

If you have recent nVidia software, you can enable the nView desktop manager, and then access the nView Desktop manager’s HotKeys tab. There you will find an option to assign a keyboard shortcut to a profile. I’ve also been trying to figure out a way to adjust the brightness and contrast with a quick, command line or shortcut method. Here’s as far as I’ve gotten.
If you have a recent version of the nVidia drivers, but are unable to find the nView Desktop manager, try accessing it via the control panel first. Next, click the ENABLE button Now when right clicking the desktop you can choose nView properties and pull up the nVidea control panel See my post on assigning keyboard shortcuts to nVidia color profiles (etc) Thanks to fransa::tech for helping me figure this out Disable nView Desktop Manager Thanks to Michael for the following tip: If you want to disable nVidia nView desktop manager, you will need to run this command, and / or add it to your startup folder / tasks so that it runs each time you start windows: rundll32 “c:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\nView\nView64.dll”, nViewCmd poff
What you need is the KeyConfig add on. Read about KeyConfig and how to configure your keyboard shortcuts Download / Install KeyConfig here (there is no landing page, just a link to install directly – sorry! This addon is not listed on the Firefox extensions page!)
