It’s very comfortable with this type of keyboard because when I am listening with Windows Media Player, I can start/stop/forward/backward without switching to Windows Media Player. Unfortunately these multimedia keys don’t work with Firefox. Let’s consider this case: I have multi tabs opened in Firefox. One of them is YouTube website and is playing a video. I am on chatting with my family on Yahoo Messenger and would like to make a voice chat. So I would like to pause the video of YouTube and resume it after chatting. However the multimedia key don’t work with Firefox (when Firefox is in background and YouTube is not active tab), I must browse to Firefox and then YouTube site to pause the video. It’s really uncomfortable. Therefore I would like make the multimedia keys work with Firefox so that I don’t have to jump between windows to stop the sound.

Poll – Best Mozilla Firefox 3.6 Theme

Mozilla just released new version 3.6 of Firefox on 21.01.2010 http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html. In this new version, there are a lot of new mini features as when you open a new tab by clicking on a link, this new tab will be placed next to the current tab like Google Chrome, IE. In last versions the new tab will always be opened at last. The new feature which I do like is the Personas feature was integrated into Firefox too. I tried a lot of theme for Firefox and find out some of them are really the best.

Black Stratini

Black Stratini is my Stratini theme with a dose of the darkness. All highlights are in dark blue, as blue is the most common highlight color for Windows and Mac color schemes. Black Stratini uses Stratini Padded icons and spacing in Large Icons mode and Stratini icons in Small Icons and Teeny modes. This gives Black Stratini the unique ability to have three very different sizes in one package.
