Acer Aspire One netbook - Almost Perfect

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

Now that I've been using my Acer Aspire One laptop for two weeks I can share a few more thoughts about it. Do I still love the laptop? Most assuredly. Have I discovered some small areas for improvement? Yes, that too.

When I want to visit a different web site in Firefox, I usually place my cursor in the address bar and then press Control-A to select all in the address bar. After selecting all, I can then quickly delete the text in the address bar and then type in the text of the web page I want to go to. For some reason, on the Acer Aspire One Control-A does not select all the text in the address bar in Firefox. I find this to be a minor annoyance rather than a major annoyance, but maybe Acer can find out a way to fix that issue.

One other improvement on this laptop comes to mind. This improvement involves adding a preference to Firefox that would give you more vertical pixels in your web browser. What kind of improvement?
