Flash focus border in Firefox

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I’ve noticed recently that Firefox has started showing a 1px dotted border around flash objects when I click on them. It didn’t bother me enough to look for a solution, but today the solution found me.
In my rss reader a blog post from FlashComGuru pops up, showing how to get rid of this annoyance, pasted here for your convenience:

Simply add this to your page’s stylesheet:

a:focus, object:focus { outline: none; -moz-outline-style: none; }

Windows Mobile not showing contacts

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

I had a problem with my windows mobile phone not showing me the name of who was calling me (it only showed the number).
The deal is that I store every contact in my phone in this format:
+354 xxx xxxx
That is, first the country code, and then the phone number. When I receive a sms, my phone service provider sends the number in the same format, but when I get a phone call it omits the country code.

I couldn’t believe that WM couldn’t figure this out, so after a little searching around I found out that WM actually does figure the numbers out, but only for 8 digit local numbers. Nothing a little registry hack can’t fix.

To fix this, first download PHM Registry Editor (works for WM 6.0-6.5).
Then, edit the registry value


to be 7 instead of the default 8.
