Re: a new wallpaper

nice design, but imo the text is too bold and sharp while the background is blurred too much. If you can get a good contrast between the two it will be pretty awesome

Re: Youtube videos won't load on fire fox

everything im seeing says that hardware acceleration fixes it, perhaps going to an embedded video and setting it there? Actually any video on any site should let you set it.
