Firefox Linux tips

Sarah and I both use Linux regularly. (Ubuntu, thanks for asking.) Here are some tips and extensions that I use to make the experience better.

  • MediaPlayerConnectivity - Linux and QuickTime still don't get along great. One combo that seems to work reasonably well for me is to use CodeWeaver's CrossOver plugin for QuickTime 6.x media and then enable this plugin for QuickTime 7. It just passes things along to MPlayer, which is quite capable of playing QT7 but has trouble with some sites. (ZeFrank.)
