comment mplayer suddenly stopped responding to keyboard commands - what gives?
Added a bug report to launchpad (bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mplayer/+bug/1507224), but apparently nobody else seems to be affected. A couple of "try this, check that" suggestions would be very welcome, though. :\

comment Can you record calls using Ubuntu Phone?
Thanks, Velkan. Not sure what it means, though. Do you see it as "won't be supported" or "probably won't be supported"?

comment How do I make Firefox open in the foreground when clicking a link in Thunderbird?
I've no problem reporting it there: I just thought to check first if there is a setting of some sort...

comment Privacy with Ubuntu Phone
"Closed source" doesn't necessarily mean "no privacy", although it's harder to protect against. Even if someone tried to do something under the radar (usually not the case: loss of privacy is most often described in detail in the small print of the licence, but people don't seem to care...), it would still be very difficult for a closed source driver to systematically send meaningful amounts of information to any particular destination without being detected by at least one user. After that, the company could be in for significant legal problems. This is very rare, I believe.

comment Sound Recorder does not show “record as” option
@adjustingthesound "complicated" when referring to Sound Recorded is quite a stretch, as is implying that using arecord is anything else than way beyond the reach of a significant part of users.

comment Gnome-terminal tabs: no contrast between active and inactive tabs
Forgot to add: I tried switching to another theme and back (as suggested here: askubuntu.com/a/221783/32201) and still no effect.

comment Gnome-terminal tabs: no contrast between active and inactive tabs
Tried the tab:active block alone, no effect. :\ It appears that the file does not get noticed/read by a newly opened gnome-terminal. Could it be in the wrong place, does it have to be referenced from somewhere?
