My pleasure!  smiley
Let me know how it works out for you!

Ya, i don't know why, sometimes FF does super good for me and at others no.
Could it be your adblock extension?
I've been using AdGuard without a problem.
uBlock Origin i did not like.
AddonsMemory can help you to determine which extensions are resource hogs.

Think its 'cause you have to clear the cache out once in a while.

Did try Nightly and don't find it any better than present stable.

@rjbull,
Do appreciate your findings and shall keep them in mind.
Think i'll be content with Hotkeyz for now, for i've decided to renounce to the Windows 10 Preview as well as the upcoming upgrade on July 29.

@skwire,
I'm still interested in your work!

Thank you all for lending a helping hand.

Sounds good skwire!

Just re-installed Windows Preview 10162 (update to 10240 or later probably tomorrow or so) and configured Splat to start up on reboot and it did just fine. It came out maximized so i'll check up to see if it remembers last window size.

The "shutdown" option is working just fine thank you!  Thmbsup

It would be nice to see the other options (and more) 'cause there's really no easy alternative to Hotkeyz.



update: just to confirm that user defined resize of app window came back at reboot.

Is it possible to configure things like "eject media", "increase/decrease sound volume", "mute", "shutdown"?
Reason i'm asking, have been using Hotkeyz for these things and it isn't being upgraded and won't work well with Windows 10.

It's odd that this chap recommends doing away with flash (coincidence that it appears at same time you post here?):
http://www.techsupportale...stalling-flash-player.htm
Can html5 replace it 100%?

BTW, did you try FF beta before going to extremes with Nightly?

Classic T.R. is cool. Just hope it doesn't break up along the way like many other extensions deemed useful.

@MilesAhead,

You may be right! I may be wrong! (sounds like words for a song).  cheesy
Nightly 64bit seems to be much perkier than what i would expect.
Don't know if it's the new default tab look, but i do like to see them compacted.
This version doesn't like (incompatible with) my default theme FT DeepDark, neither does it like Bing extension (wonder why?), and it told me that Diigo extension might slow it down.

Not bad! 3 out of 24!

"Flash issues" you say?
Having just re-installed my laptop, can't say i've noticed any particular hic with stable.

Have been testing Vivaldi's latest and i find it pretty good.
Still not ready for the road, but it sure looks promising!
More than Windows 10 Edge which won't even have extensions support by official release date of July 29.

Might give that Nightly Build a spin.
If my computer breaks, it's all your fault MilesAhead!  tongue

Latest 39 stable is doing good for me.
Don't dabb with betas or nightly versions of FF anymore.
Besides, this fast release cycle hasn't really been doing anything more than frustrating faithful FF users.
Recent Pocket and Hello are a perfect example of Mozilla that no longer seems to know what to do to get back its lost users to Google Chrome. First Australis... then down hill...
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: July 10, 2015, 12:25:11 PM
Although i do like the new Onenote they offer, i'm not so sure about the rest.
The shareware/freeware i presently have don't all work with Windows 10.
So, i've gone back to Windows 7 for now.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Microsoft OneNote - some experiential Tips & Tricks on: July 06, 2015, 08:56:21 AM
Don't know if you have had a chance to glance at new desktop version in present Windows 10 Preview releases.
Looks nice! Reminds me a bit of Evernote with its preview icons.
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Macrium Reflet Free 6.0.684 on: July 06, 2015, 08:53:27 AM
At basic level, it's a good alternative to Acronis True Image 11 which is incompatible with Windows 10 Preview.  smiley
14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Panda Free Antivirus 2015 anyone using? on: May 26, 2015, 09:02:10 PM
Was recommended to it by a friend at TechSupportAlert.com who uses it for Windows even if he is mostly a Linux user.
But i did use it in the past, especially after dropping AVG and ESET (the later to my regret - but no free version there).
Presently using 360 Total Security (even in light of latest negative press) but that doesn't take away my appreciation for Panda.

BTW, i skip toolbar installation etc. when i do install Panda.
15  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Panda Free Antivirus 2015 anyone using? on: May 26, 2015, 04:16:36 PM
Never had any issues with Panda AV free version.
An occasional ad popup, otherwise very light and pretty fast for scans.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Antivirus: Quick Thoughts 2015 on: May 20, 2015, 08:07:57 PM
ESET was my fav but have gone over to the "free" side with Panda or 360 Total Security.
Have just re-installed pc and debating between the two.

Don't think it makes much difference between free or shareware AV since from my past experience, they often fail to neutralize attacks all the time or in real time if you prefer.

I find something like MalwareBytes to be the best complimentary asset to conteract nasties.
Would be nice if ESET had a minimum free version though.  smiley

Excellent find Ian! Thank you!  Thmbsup

Thought i was subscribed to this thread... where is that darn bookmark/subscribe to thread link now?

Good for you!  smiley
Have you tried Opera's latest chromium based?
Here's what GHacks reported in a recent article.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Opera now supports DuckDuckGo on: March 30, 2015, 07:57:55 AM
Was wondering about just that this a.m.!
Actually, why Vivaldi didn't do the move yet.
So, Opera beat them to it.

The beta or "next" version should install all Chrome extensions without any hassle.
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: MxNitro Browser on: March 23, 2015, 08:58:35 PM
Maxthon has been a funny adventure.
They've got 4 different browsers and none are finished enough to say they are polished products.
They made this MxNitro 'cause their users voted speed as their top prefered feature in a new browser.
Go figure!

Maybe no.5 will be one with decent addons...

Speed enhancement seems to be the big promise with Windows 10 as per this article, but the free upgrade would appear to go back to Windows 7 only:
"Pour la première fois, Windows 10 sera pendant un an offert comme une mise à jour gratuite pour les utilisateurs des deux versions antérieures, Windows 7 et Windows 8.1."

22  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux Mint LMDE "Betsy" Mate and Cinnamon are out! on: March 19, 2015, 07:43:48 AM
It's interesting to note that Makulu's dev has recently taken the Ubuntu Unity direction why Linux Mint seems to be planning the opposite. With Ubuntu's ongoing expansion efforts you wonder what Clem has in mind for the long term?

@MilesAhead, didn't know Windows 10 could be installed on old PCs too.
If so, then that would be a first for sure!
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux Mint LMDE "Betsy" Mate and Cinnamon are out! on: March 18, 2015, 01:08:10 PM
As expected, this latest LM distro has its quirks too.
Tweaking Linux distros i find almost endless compared to what you can do with Windows.

What is nice with LinuxMint and Ubuntu is that they work pretty well out of the box, have drivers for most important peripherals and can thus revive old PCs for a few more "miles ahead".  tongue
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux Mint LMDE "Betsy" Mate and Cinnamon are out! on: March 18, 2015, 08:54:33 AM
Ya, and i was almost first to post on LM's blog too!
Have been patiently waiting for this version.
Always liked LinuxMint and Clem sure is doing an excellent job!  Thmbsup

Not sure if this is an issue but CPU has been hanging around 50C

Otherwise, this distro was a piece of cake to install and it is truly fast!!

Based directly on Debian (not on Ubuntu).

Did i beat 40hz to post about this?  Wink
