Every person's wants in a Window Manager vary.  I don't want icons, I
want to be able to have a lot of xterms that I can move out of the way
with keystrokes.  The evilwm and weewm can both do it as well, but I
like my flux transparent menu eye candy.  Also, weewm has a limit,
AFAICT, on what you can do with keystrokes. If there are too many items
in the their keys file, the last items simply don't work. I got around
this by getting rid of several that I wouldn't use.

Me too, with every version of Firefox that I've been using.  In
about:config, I also change the singleWindow whatever (type single in
the filter and the menu item comes up) toggling it to true so that links
open in new tabs.
