Re: Patronising POS
I know what you mean. The "Hi. We're getting things ready for you." screens when you first log into Win10 creep me out every time I see it. I can't quite say why. It just makes me uncomfortable.

Or when the timesheet software is so bad that it does this for you.
When the threshold for employee exemption was approaching, HR made me keep track of my time - trying to figure out whether it was cheaper to pay me overtime or give me a raise - and nobody in my department had used that "software" before.
It happily let me clock out when not clocked in and vice versa, had no problems claiming that I worked 31 hours on a single day because I clocked out past midnight and didn't press "the special key" and crashed if I had more than 8 clock-ins/outs a day (I clocked in every time I got on VPN while on call). My manager had to get some admin secretary to fix my timesheets because he couldn't figure it out.
I'm probably misunderstanding you but you can actually drag a tab from one FF window to the other. Actually you can drag and drop them pretty much where ever you want, although IE opens them all in the same tab.
Oh, and thanks for the 'middle click on back/next/home.' Didn't know that one.
Our HP 3050 conveniently had a usb cable in the box. Of course it's the only way to connect it so there's no choice of including different types of cables.
