comment How to let the browser prefer IPv6 over IPv4?
Just checked. There's no need to touch the pref. It nowadays defaults to true in Firefox - also for Ubuntu's Firefox.

comment How to dynamically enable and disable ipv6 on an interface
This answer will tell the linux kernel not to support IPv6 at all during boot time. While this is fine, I wanted to stress that there is no way to re-enable without a reboot

Your post assumes Gnome2 - how did this change in the light of Gnome3?

comment I lost the “global menu bar integration” firefox addon
This issue occurred once more quite recently. Disabling the addon and restarting firefox then re-enabling and restarting again solved it for me here!

It's not a problem with aurora, the ppa works fine and brings its own firefox-globalmenu

comment I lost the “global menu bar integration” firefox addon
That helped installing it, but I fixed it differently. I diabled the PPA and had to remove firefox completely; then installed firefox 15 which brought the globalmenu back. Then I upgraded to aurora (re-enabling the PPA).

firefox-globalmenu depends on firefox (= 15.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.11.04.1); however: Version of firefox on system is 17.0~a2~hg20120920r106901-0ubuntu1~umd1~precise. Essentially, what I was asking for is a way to override this warning.

comment I lost the “global menu bar integration” firefox addon
Ah! Purged now. I have the PPA installed to use firefox-aurora (the next-next version of firefox) instead of the normal firefox. This means that there is no global-menu package in my list anymore :/ I could install firefox-globalmenu with the PPA disabled but APT complains that it wants firefox 15, not 17. Any chance to force-ignore this dependency check?

comment How do I free up more space in /boot?
@Lekensteyn For me, the GUI warning that /boot is running full comes mostly after upgrades. So you say this would also remove the latest one, that hasn't been booted yet? :/
