User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Maxthon; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; FDM) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Firefox/0.9.2 I use the Web a lot for browsing news sites and printing out information (I love to read offline, but I always print in recycled paper). I don't know how to code, but I hope you'll like this idea and make it real. I'd love to have a feature in Firefox that would enable me to enter a new mode, in which links I click remain in a list accessible by a menu (if I want to edit it for any reason). That mode would be previously configured so that I could specify the format of the news URL and the format of the "print this page" URL. In this way, the links would pass by a search and replace operation. Then, I'd have the possibility to fullscreen a slideshow with all the URLs in the list I built by clicking with that mode on. By using left/right on the keyboard, I'd easily browse back and forward, like if I was reading in an old microfilm system in a library. Up and down would move the doc up and down smoothly. Eventually it would be nice to force a cache for this operation so the sites aren't unnecesarily overloaded with forward/back (Depends on how it's built, I know). Then, I'd have some keys available in the fullscreen, with the possibility of doing simple automated macros. For things like: 1. Saving in a format as IE's "mht" preserving all the visual 2. Printing immediately with a predefined color/bw/quality 3. Saving as in number 1 but naming the file from the mouse-selected text instead of the document title 4. All these mixed 5. Any thing you can also imagine :) This will speed up my news browsing like hours a week. I always print to read offline, and this would be a huge upgrade, for what I use a browser :) Thanks in advance guys. And congratulations for this amazing project!

1) dupe of bug 40873 2) ctrl+P 3) ? 4) ? 5) ? WONT ?
I don't really understand what you're asking for, but it sounds like you're asking for something very similar to tabbed browsing. Have you tried tabbed browsing with fullscreen mode and the shortcuts for switching between tabs (Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+Shift+Tab, Ctrl+[number])?
Of course there are approaches to what I imagine, but I searched and nothing good enough exists that can really save me time. One of the sites I use for news is http://ultimahora.publico.pt. What I usually do, in SlimBrowser (I use this IE Upgrade because of the MHT saving capability) is open all the news I'm interested in by clicking the scroll button. They all open in background. Then, I close the main tab and start a process that involves, for every open page, checking the first one or two paragraphs and then decide if it's interesting. If it is, I save it as an MHT with the name of the article (it's not in the title - which is standard -, so I have to select the blue text and paste it in the save dialog) Then, after saving, I click the print button, and still have to click ok in the print dialog. Then, I still look up and down on the right-hand column to see if there are latest news that interest me. If that happens, I print them out too. And save them on disk. As I hope you can see, this would benefit from an idiot-proof system to collect URLs, give the possibility to apply a search-and-replace operation on that list (to convert links to the printable version, if one wanted to do it - for me it may be useful), and then have a fullscreen slideshow just as easy as ACDSee. Left/Right to pass from page to page, and Up/Down to scroll the pages - smoothly. Then some keys would be assigned, in order to immediately save and print, or to save with the name as in the selected text and print, etc etc. All this configurable. Please make this real. It will boost my productivity soooo much! And remember: I think of a better world. I use recycled ink and recycled paper :) I just love to go out and walk the dog and go read everything in paper sitting in the garden... real world rocks ;) All the best to you guys!! Ric PS: As this fullscreen would be a new special mode, like the Microfilm mode or something, the keys assigned would be as easy as possible, no CTRL+ etc. No need for it I think. Good luck :)
