I have been in contact with Thorsten but he was unable
to contact these translators. I will see what I can do in
this regard.

I have turned the PM print screen off when Gotcha Quiet
is running. I prefer that the print screen key activates
Gotcha. I have no use for the print to printer behavior
and believe that will be the case for most people. Note if
printing from Firefox actually worked there would be no
use case for this.

Since I have figured out how to always turn PM print
screen off a setting will be required to turn it back on. I
also need to rework the key capture to account for this
or print screen will cause both to occur.  One other note I
do not touch the PM print screen setting so print screen
works as set when Gotcha Quiet isn't running.

Not a problem. I know you are busy with 5.0.3. Thanks
