At least in Terminal.app you can hold down option while clicking to jump within your current line (that actually means just the line, so if your current prompt is so long that it wraps to a second line of input you'll have to option-click to the beginning of the "second" line and then hop with the arrow keys to the "first" line where you can option-click ...

In Mac's mail app you have got the option to create a 'smart mailbox'. This allows you for example to only view unread emails. It can even do that over multiple mailboxes. Sample rule for unread messages of today (taken from makeusof.com): If you just want to have the unread messages always on top, there's a sort option for that in the menu between Edit ...

There's a reason why Apple appears to onlookers to be so anti-Flash, and it's because Flash sucks on Macs (it may also suck on other OSs, but I don't use them enough to be knowledgeable). What to do about it depends on what browser you use (your question doesn't say, as Mozilla's Plugin Check isn't FF-only): Safari - the answer is ClickToFlash. Honestly, ...

Problematic uses of terminology Where Oracle describes first Java for "your operating system" then "for your computer", the download is more accurately only for things that use the Internet plug-in: jre-7u13-macosx-x64.dmg installs what's required for that plug-in, but for things that use Java without the plug-in, this installer from Oracle does ...

This is a known issue and the author doesn't plan to fix it. I encourage someone to go further and implement it because personally I don't use fullscreen apps right now and I don't plan to fix this anytime soon. Luckily, there is a workaround described by vvlad. As an workaround you can set LSUIElement in Terminal's Info.plist It has several ...

Support for playing .mid files in Safari was removed in 10.8. The QuickTime plugin from 10.7 or 10.6 still works in 10.9 though. See https://discussions.apple.com/message/23948316#23948316. Copy /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/QuickTime Plugin.plugin from a 10.7 or 10.6 installation to ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ on your 10.9 or 10.8 installation. Run these ...

Try TotalTerminal (http://totalterminal.binaryage.com/). It's by the author of Visor, but doesn't require SIMBL to function. And it works flawlessly on Lion.

Last.fm and its API opened to developers gave birth to some nice web applications. Of course, you must have an account (free) and scrobble your songs to benefit from them. Two of them related to analytics (I'm not a specialist, I guess there must be other ones) : http://www.mymusichabits.com/visualize/cosmokraymer http://lastgraph.aeracode.org/user/...

There are two choices available right now: Photomatix Hydra You should try both and see which matches your “taste” better :)

Installing java won't have much effect on battery life. I don't think installing Flash will have much effect either. Where the issue is is when you hit a website with badly written flash (and to a very much less extent Java) where the animation takes up CPU but you can just leave these sites - you will be no worse off than not installing. Java is now ...

Mail.app has the ability to flag in red any e-mail address (in the To, CC, BCC fields, or From pull-down menu) that does not match a particular domain ending. If you go to Mail -> preferences -> Composing and enter your primarydomain.com in the "Mark addresses not ending in:" field. I use this all the time for exactly what you are asking for. if ...

Flash on the Mac is the single-largest cause of Safari crashes. That's just the way it is.

It's quite a time since this question came up and I did already mention the below on this platform in Option-click in iTerm and the issue tracker of iTerm2 but maybe it's of help for one or the other: Hi, just wanted to let you know that I implemented that feature in iTerm2. It's not yet in the official iTerm2 repo but if you'd like to give it a go, you can ...

I did some digging and documented my findings. The plug-in is used to produce the below dialog. It can be triggered by Apple from inside any other web browser. It is unclear when and where this is used.

The answer is at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/jweb/jcp/properties.html (Java 7) and http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/deploy/properties.html (Java 8), though the instructions could be more explicit. They say to set the deployment.webjava.enabled to false in your deployment.properties file, whose location is ...

The hotkey window in iTerm2 works well for this, but with one catch - it only works if iterm2 is open (it doesn't have to be focused or in the foreground, but it must be running).

I'm not super familiar with NoScript, but from a quick glance at the site, I can think of two good starting points - how useful they are will depend on which features of NoScript you make use of. ClickToPlugin is a great plugin blocker, pretty configurable, and it also has a fantastic h.264 replacement for Flash video. It substitutes h.264 video with a nice ...

Yosemite Users Apple changed the way the LSUIElement works in Yosemite. It will cause the app to run as an agent but will no longer cause it to overlay full screen Windows. To fix, open up the Info.plist file per other people's instructions and add the following two elements: <key>LSUIElement</key> <true/> <key>...

You can't talk Eclipse into treating app bundles as files. Mac apps are actually "bundles", which are special folders, not files. The Finder treats them as files, but anything that uses lower-level file system APIs will see a .app file as the folder it actually is. If you look at the appify script on Github, you can see that just making a few plain ...

I was having a very similar issue, all video or jpg image files were replaced by the "Missing Plug-in" in any email received or sent. After upgrading to the latest Java, deleting the java plist file, repairing permissions, and numerous other suggested solutions from various websites, I downloaded from Apple and installed the latest OSX 10.7.5 "combo" update. ...

A quick-fix way to avoid this error is to Control-click on the Mail toolbar, select Customize Toolbar ... and instead of accepting the Apple default where Reply, Reply All and Forward are joined in one big button, choose each one singly, dragging them to the toolbar as a single button, spacing them widely and not contiguous at all ... and Show Icon and Text ...

It appears Spotlight does not make use of Address Book plug-ins. Extra menu items added by Skype also fail to appear in the Spotlight preview. It is worth providing feedback to Apple asking for this functionality to be added. It would greatly improve Spotlight. Context Menu in Contacts.app: Context Menu of Contact in Spotlight:
