    Default Two quick qns

    Hi all,
    Am on suse11.2 KDE4
    I have two queries,when am using skype e.g and I close it,it remains running in the background however I cant maximise it again.(have to kill it and then start it again).ALT+ TAB brings the other processes but not skype.It's still running and I can see notifications.
    2.In firefox,when am scrolling down a page,the text gets mingled into each other,i have tried to edit options in firefox (autoscrolling and smooth scrolling) but no positive change.
    cheers all

    I'll address Skype.

    When running you will see the Skype icon (green circlly thingy with a check) in the system tray this what you use to restore the window. Don't use the desktop, that will just try to start a new instance. If you wish to quit skype use the menu or right click the system tray icon and select quit there.

    For Firefox. sounds like a video card issue. What card do you have and did you install the 3D driver for it???

    maybe the OP has deleted the "system tray" and therefore can't see
    Skype's icon declaring it is still running (even after clicking the X
    on the Skype window)..

    I hope you see what is the result of your posting yourself:

    1) you have two problems/questions and were to lazy to create two threads (each with a good title, the one with at least the word Skype in it and the other with FF).
    2) regardless of the fact that your thread will not be looked at by any Skype nor FF guru because they will only see "Two quick qns" in the list of new threads, you got some answers on the Skype one, but the FF one will most probably never get any reaction.

    I hope you see the importance of:
    1) one case per thread;
    2) thread titles that attract the people you need.
