    1. In firefox, when I first turn on the computer, I can hold command and click on a link to open the link in a new tab (same thing as control click, drag/highlight on "open in new tab"). This will work for a while, but then after a few minutes, this command+click on a link will start opening whatever link I click on in a new tab and in a new window. Has anybody else encountered this?

    2. How can I set a keyboard shortcut for the "clean up" under "View" in Finder? I move files around a lot and hate seeing them all unorganized all over the place when I open up folders. I tried reading the help file in the keyboard shortcuts tab under system preferences, but couldn't figure it out.

    Thanks.

    2: when you are in the keyboard section add new. For finder type in "Clean Up". then set your key combo. Then you need to restart finder. A couple ways to do this. If you have added quit to the finder menu like me do that. Or force quit finder. Or log out and in. Then it should have the symbol beside it in the menu. Also you may be interested in turning on snap to grid. Under view go into show view options then apply snap to grid. I like that!:)

    I've experienced that FireFox tends to not obey commands sometimes, specifically in DeerPark. I don't know about the regular version as I don't have it on my computer, but I can only assume that it may occur in it and it's just a bug that they need to fix in a future release.

    I tried this, but it didn't work... I tried designating command+shift+C to "Clean Up", but it just brings up a finder window... can somebody else clarify these instructions or give me some more suggestions?
