Does it require Gnome, or will it work in KDE/X etc?

comment what is the command for compiling a 32-bit binary in Ubuntu 13.10?
According to this answer on Stack Overflow, you can use the -m32 flag. (Found via Googling gcc 32-bit.)

...or, if your machine isn't up 24/7, look into anacron as @Volodya suggests.

comment Delay before Firefox starts downloading
@Jos -- It's a Firefox issue, yes, but it's only happening for me on Ubuntu 12.10/XFCE. My Windows machine at home works fine, but both my work machine and my laptop (both Ubuntu 12.10 with XFCE) exhibit the delay. Also, Firefox with a brand-new blank profile still exhibits the delay. I'll contact Mozilla, too, thanks.

The same delay happens in safe mode. I sometimes have some Novell drives mounted, but they're not mounted now, and I'm still seeing the delay. I'll add the results of mount to my question, in case they're salient.

comment Firefox doesn't display website text
I had this same issue with Firefox 20.0 and Ubuntu 12.10 (dual-boot with Windows 7). I had copied several MS fonts from the Windows partition to /usr/share/fonts/ and run sudo fc-cache -f -v, only to have Firefox end up with completely blank pages. Turned out that the fonts I'd copied in were set to 600 instead of 644 or 755.
