That's not an option either, because I remember "pointing" that way is
really cumbersome and since my main machine is a laptop, I don't have a
decent numpad anyway.

The real problem is that I have become too dependent on Firefox and all
those extensions I use on a daily basis. Some are pointless in a console
browser (Adblock, No Squint) but others have completely defined my way
of browsing the web (Sage, Tab Mix Plus). It is the only program where I
constantly have to resize the window (I *hate* reading lines longer than
~80 characters) and it's the only program which makes my laptop (1.3GHz
Pentium M, most of the time clocked down to 600MHz) feel slow. And I
have to give in that I actually like to view the occasional Youtube

I cannot even switch to a tiling window manager because of the line
length issue. My 14", 1024x768 display is just too narrow to have two
windows side-by-side and too wide to have Firefox running fullscreen.

I hate myself but have no clear idea why.
