@EirNym: I use password-based authentication (can't change that unfortunately, I'm not administering the server)

comment X11 periodically losing focus
@EirNym: yes, I know, but still, sometimes I just need the X interface / it is more convenient... I get that there are alternatives but I'd like this to work since it requires the least set up (it's not only about firefox).

@EirNym, no, the point is I want to run say firefox on the remote server

comment X11 periodically losing focus
@EirNym: I am aware of those, but the thing is sometimes I need to run other (graphical) programs over SSH as well, so it'd be more convenient if I could just get this fixed for all X11 apps.

comment X11 periodically losing focus
@bispymusic: it's much more convenient doing it this way, because I can just ssh in once and then launch multiple terminals on the machine. To use Terminal.app for this I'd have to open multiple ssh connections

comment Why does File:/// crash my app?
@kojiro: type it into Spotlight, and it crashes the bar. Yes, not quite a kernel panic, but severe enough to warrant "system" imo.

comment Why does File:/// crash my app?
@kojiro: the app. In case of programs like Chrome or text editors, this is a VERY severe bug, seeing as you lose all work.

comment Simple scanning to PDF
@bmike: It's an Epson Perfection V30. It does have a button for scanning to PDF; however, all the button does is open up Image Capture. (In Windows, with the Epson driver installed, it does scan to PDF though, but you need their software which is not available for Mac AFAIK)

comment Disable cross-screen shadows
I know why it happens / how it's coded, that's not the point... I don't know of / think there is a way to make a dead zone.
