Yes, well aware of the extensions issue. Since I had no solution, I
started looking at it as a blessing in disguise ;-) It makes me use
less extensions, only adblock and https-everywhere right now on
Conkeror. But then I have a lot of stuff in javascript!

Glad keysnail is working, I may have to look at it as a backup

I could never get into zotero, when I tried last. I use a combination
of Pocket, Evernote, and org files for research / notes taking.

You probably know this, but .... you can write a function and assign a
key for this to make life a bit easier.

// **** open in Firefox ****
function open_in_firefox (url, window) {
    var cmd_str = 'open -a firefox '+url;
    if (window != null) {
        window.minibuffer.message('Issuing ' + cmd_str);

interactive("firefox", "Send url to Firefox",
          function (I) {
              open_in_firefox(I.buffer.display_uri_string, I.window);
define_key(content_buffer_normal_keymap, "f5", "firefox");
