comment Copy percent-encoded URLs (rather than Unicode URLs)
@TomBrossman Although the questions ask something different, I found the answer to my question there. Thanks! (The navigation bar of Firefox seems to copy URLs automatically percent-encoded. I used a plug-in for browsing, which copies URLs as they are...)

I want to do the opposite, although the page helps in that it doesn't recognize Japanese characters and replaces them with the HTML code. Is there any way to achieve this in Firefox directly, without needing to paste every URL I want to copy into a page?

comment Can't login after forced shutdown
@shantanu The log contains nothing suspicious as far as I can tell. Last few lines: [+8.24s] DEBUG: Started session 1985 with service 'lightdm', username 'user' [+8.25s] DEBUG: Session 1985 got 1 message(s) from PAM [+8.25s] DEBUG: Prompt greeter with 1 message(s) What is PAM?

I also removed and reinstalled unity-greeter. I'll try some of the suggestions in your reference.

comment Can't login after forced shutdown
I completely removed and reinstalled lightdm with no change. Could it still be a configuration issue?

@shantanu I "completely remove"d lightdm via synaptic, reinstalled and set back as default display manager with no change...

As a workaround. Thanks, that should work. Is there no hope to understand what went wrong with lightdm?

@Web-E I see. stopping and restarting lightdm still doesn't get me past the login screen in lightdm, but I am able to login with gdm, after starting it.

@shantanu I can login. I had also tried sudo stop gdm, but it just tells me stop: Unknown instance:.
