Google Music Hotkeys

Great addon - and how to make it work with system-wide shortcuts (Linux) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Love this - but not a fan of the shortcut combos - nor the fact that they aren't global.

To fix this, simply map your favourite key-shortcut to the following commands:
Next track: xdotool key --clearmodifiers --window `(xdotool search --classname Navigator | head -1)` ctrl+alt+period
Previous track: Next track: xdotool key --clearmodifiers --window `(xdotool search --classname Navigator | head -1)` ctrl+alt+,
Play/Pause: Next track: xdotool key --clearmodifiers --window `(xdotool search --classname Navigator | head -1)` ctrl+alt+p

If you're using KDE:
1. From system settings choose "Shortcuts and Gestures"
2. Under "custom shortcuts" choose Edit->New->Global shortcut->Command/URL
3. Give your shortcut a nice name and comment (optional)
4. Under the Trigger tab, select the keycombo you'd like to use. I suggest using Ctrl with your media keys
5. Under Action, enter the appropriate command (as given above)
6. Repeat steps 2-5 for the other two commands given above.

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

FANTASTIC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderful - but why, oh why can't I just access my feeds as a web page (for places where I don't want to install the full app)?

Very nice - and how to fix the tabs in linux Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very nice - can't wait for the final release. (Only three stars because it doesn't work out of the box under linux :( )

Here's a fix for the weird tabs in linux - simply add to userChrome.css:

Fantastic. For those who use linux, fix the weird tabs by adding the following to your userChrome.css :

#main-window:not([disablechrome="true"]) #TabsToolbar:not(:-moz-lwtheme) .tabbrowser-tab[selected="true"] .tab-stack {
padding-left: 28px !important;
padding-right: 28px !important;
-moz-border-image-slice: 0 28 0 28 fill !important;
}

Docky Unread Count

Easy to fix for KDE Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well with the KDE icon-only task manager - when one tiny little fix is made:

in /chrome/content/update-badge.py, replace the lines beginning ITEM21_ with:
ITEM21_NAME = 'net.launchpad.DockManager'
ITEM21_IFACE = 'net.launchpad.DockItem'

Close thunderbird, restart! Voila!
