comment Maintain IP address alive even when cable not plugged
For this reason (frequent disconnected cables), Network Manager was invented. Any reason why you are not using NM or similar software? Any reason why you actually need this static IP?

For the player question, try to figure out the cause and/ or create a new question. If you wish to recover your current profile, could you navigate to about:support, press the Copy text to clipboard button and paste this somewhere? You could also try the Refresh Firefox... button, but I have no idea what it does, but it looks like it can lose some settings.

comment What tools are available for determining a files type other than the file command?
@Fabby looking at machine code in hex is not recommended, use a disassembler instead (which is still hard if you have just a linear view of the assembly). In OPs case, the disassembler is unlikely going to produce meaningful results for the save file. Instead, he could run it on the Football Manager program to understand how the save file is written.

comment full disk encryption on SSD with trusty
LUKS and ext4 (default filesystem on Ubuntu) both support the discard mount option which enables TRIM. Not sure about LVM, you have to do additional research for that. cryptfs operates on top of a regular filesystem. If ext4 has TRIM enabled, then it will also be enabled for cryptfs. FWIW, I have ext4 on top of LUKS on a SSD running Arch Linux, there is no LVM in between.

@UNIm95 Can you reproduce with a clean profile? For instance mkdir -p /tmp/firefox-test && firefox -no-remote -profile /tmp/firefox-test. Did you change anything else? Also try to start with add-ons disables (Help -> Restart with Add-ons disabled).

Oh, I thought it was much harder to change behavior. I guess the hassle was not worth it to stick to Caps Lock :P

comment Ubuntu KVM Guest DNS problems
@garthoid nslookup example.com 206.248.154.170 times out for me (whereas nslookup example.com 8.8.8.8 for Google DNS works). Is this some ISP DNS server not accessible to the outside world?
