comment google.com requesting password?! Is my router / firefox / computer infected?
@Alaa I don't think I use proxy in Ubuntu. In System Settings > Network > Network proxy the chosen Method is None. Btw. Chrome says 'Google Chrome is using your computer's system proxy settings to connect to the network' and it is not configurable. And Firefox after choosing 'No proxy' instead of 'Use system proxy settings' works fine.

comment google.com requesting password?! Is my router / firefox / computer infected?
@Alaa Perfect guess! It was 'Use system proxy settings' and after switching to 'No proxy' it is fine - I mean, I get redirected to www.google.pl. But it doesn't explain the root cause of the problem. Do you think there is something wrong about my router?

A great answer! Helped me with a similar issue on 12.04 and finally I've got my media keys back! Very comprehensive.

comment Cloning Ubuntu over network
Yeah! Everything works perfectly! And the cloning process was very fast - much faster than normal copying files. I think it was a good decision to make a clone. P.S. I disabled proprietary drivers before clone just in case.

comment Cloning Ubuntu over network
0. I already upvoted it and will accept when test (now I have no internet cable available and wifi is too slow(-:). 1. AFAIK discussion questions are not welcome at SE sites, so I just asked for your opinion via comment. 2. If you think it fits here, I can ask it, but there already is a similar question here. Would you be so kind to post your opinion there including the 'healthy or unnecessary to reinstall' part?

comment Cloning Ubuntu over network
Thank you very much! It was so easy:) In the meantime I started doubting if cloning is such a good idea. I will copy all the drivers and randomly installed packages from the 'sender' machine. What do you think? Is it healthy to reinstall the system from time to time to make it work better or I can just make a clone and enjoy everything working immediately?

comment Wireless is disabled by hardware switch on Dell Inspiron 1750
Removing battery + disconnecting and pressing power worked for me too! Now the battery is back and Inspiron 1710 reacts correctly to switching the switch. Ubuntu 12.04.
