comment Everything opens dolphin file manager windows
The Applications menu (which is actually inside Edit->Preferences) affects what Firefox does before downloading. It defines whether a pdf should be opened with evince, or just downloaded, or opened with okular. Once a file has already been downloaded, you can manually open it from the "Downloads" window. That's what the question was about and the settings in the Applications menu have no influence on that.

comment Bind Alt-N to Nth window in byobu/screen
Thanks, it works. Using the code the shortcut now works, but only if byobu is running in xterm, otherwise it just gives me that (arg: 1). But I'll look into it later, thanks for the help.

comment Bind Alt-N to Nth window in byobu/screen
This method for inserting M-1 isn't working for me. If I press C-q the system just ignores it, and anything I press later just gets interpreted regularly (M-1 gives me an arg: 1). I thought it my be the gnome-terminal, but I switched to the console (Ctrl-Alt-F2) and the same thing happened.

comment Bind Alt-N to Nth window in byobu/screen
@maco Yes, I just like how convenient M-1 feels for me. Besides, I removed C-a because I'm just too used to emacs shortcuts, and I kept hitting it while trying to move back. I'm still considering reactivating it, but I do a lot of writing on emacs and I don't think my brain can handle both at the same time. =)
