According to my grandmother, this scroll was given to her by a client many years ago. Apparently, the client was actually present when items from a tabernacle were being burned during WW2. He rolled up this scroll and secreted it away safely, until he decided to gift it to grandma. Years later, she had a client who was a rabbi, and he first told her it was hung upside down, and then identified the scroll as being a particular story. Grandma says she thinks it was either Joseph's Coat or Jacob's Ladder, but she can't remember which. Can anybody tell what it is, or provide any other information?
Certain kinds of web pages break my browsing habits. I'm cranky and do not wish to change my browsing habits. Is there a way to get these pages to act like I want them to? [more inside]
This is a calligraphy banner with a colophon on a Chinese ink landscape painting on silk. I don't know the date, but I'm assuming it's Qing. The painting is a vertical scroll - mountain, houses, river beneath - with two or three sets of scene-setting characters. What does this say? Any date? Thanks!
Lots of websites have headers/footers that block text below them, but when you hit page down, they act as if the entire page was visible and go too far. The headers are often blog headers, the footers are often "share this" kind of footers. How do I make PageUp/PageDown work properly? This is a problem for both Firefox and Chrome, but I use Firefox mostly, in Windows. [more inside]

What is this font? I'm trying to match the cute, handwritten scroll feeling of "just add ice." I'm happy to find a typeface either to buy or a free download. OpenType preferred. My results from Identifont weren't close.
What does this scroll say? Outside of scroll. First section. Second section. It is written in Japanese, and I suspect it has something to do with Ikebana (flower arranging). [more inside]

How do I make Firefox scroll down only half a page (i.e., half the height of my screen) when I hit the spacebar, rather than down a full page?
The scrollwheel-click has suddenly stopped working in Firefox. I don't recall making any changes in preferences, but all of a sudden, what used to open up links in new tabs, no longer does so. Instead wheel-clicking on a link does nothing. Any idea how to fix this problem? I feel like I'm browsing with one less finger! (Mac OSX.4.11, Firefox 126.96.36.199, Safari is unaffected by the problem.) [more inside]
