    Btw, all these problems are also due for trying workarounds to the Firefox12+ issue that I reported in Feb-2012 at bugzilla (Anyone capable can confirm that It's something pretty easy to fix back without even interfering with Firefox standard behavior, but the bug-report is still in "UNCONFIRMED" state after all these seven *months*!) (more details in main page + link to bug-report).
    All this time were pretty much a headache due to this. This is also the main reason I can't attend the support-site like before. Thanks a lot to everyone for your reports and your understanding.
