A quick trick to get Firefox to open Gmail in a new tab when you click an email address:

First copy and paste the following into beaver and save as /opt/

Code Sample

firefox -remote "openURL(`echo $1 | sed 's/mailto://'`,new-tab)"

Then open an xterm and type:

chmod 755 /opt/

Then in Firefox, type about:config in the address bar and find the following line:

Double click it and enter /opt/

And that's it, just be sure to add opt/ to /opt/.filetool.lst

but I don't care to transmit my passwords and cookies in plain text.

edit: or just this link (from the above on)e for a description of how easy it is to capture cookies on a network...

I also had a second entry related to this.

Why use http at all when sylpheed is excellent for gmail with either POP or IMAP, and using gmail via POP and IMAP requires connecting via SSL?
