With the release of version 26 of the Firefox browser, Mozilla has implemented a plug-in activation scheme that had been hinted at back in September 2013. The new version of the Web browser makes Click to Play functionality for Java plug-ins the default behavior, requiring you to click an applet on a Web page to authorize Java to run. Previously, Mozilla had promised to make this the default for all plug-ins, save for the most recent version of Flash, but only Java gets the treatment in Firefox 26. The update also adds support for script-generated password fields, improves page load times by not decoding images that aren’t visible, and fixes the AudioToolbox MP3 backend for Mac OS X.

Add Hyperlinks to TextExpander Snippets
You can include a clickable link in a TextExpander snippet. Here's how:
- Create a new snippet.
- From the Content menu (just above the snippet body), choose Content: Formatted Text, Picture.
- Put a full URL in the snippet body, such as http://www.smilesoftware.com/
- Control-click the link text and choose Make Link from the pop-up menu.
After you've made the link, you can replace the visible URL with other text. Just put your cursor in the active link text and make changes as you would with any other text.
