Ich will ja #Firefox nutzen, aber ich will auch Vertical Tabs. Und wieso geht das nicht einfach so, _ohne_ in irgendwelchen css Dingen rumzuwurschteln?

I remain ensaddened by the realization that I was right when I realized I’ll only be satisfied when I demystify building my own browser(s) to install | side-load on all my PCs | devices.

Firefox having a phone-home auto-update nag that CANNOT be disabled in preferences was the final heartbreak 💔

Being able to patch the source myself is the only thing I trust (or someone I trust making a community-safe lightweight fork, for instance). ❤️‍🩹

Generally happy on #Firefox after my switch a few months ago, but damn if the in-your-face update popup that seemingly cannot be disabled without disabling /updates themselves/, isn't annoying as fuck 😂

Yea, sure, I /shouldn't/ end up with a half dozen browser windows each holding dozens of tabs, making me not want to risk losing some of that shit on a restart. But the brain is as the brain does…

Trying to add emoji from macOS in #Firefox and I just can't seem to do this using the Control + Command + Space keyboard trigger.

This seems to happen in #Firefox v120.0.1 and #FirefoxDeveloperEdition v121.0b6

This is very weird. Any idea what could be causing this? Has anyone seen this behavior before?

@linmob For the PPP / Camera I'd like to point out that it relies on #libcamera, #PipeWire and #GStreamer, all of which would need some improvements to get to similar results like MP on the PP (in case of libcamera mainly device specific).

That being said, the big advantage of using that stack is that the camera can be used in more apps, such as Decoder, @dino or #Firefox

So I personally would love to see more of the knowledge and optimizations in MP finding their way upstream :)

there is other options in there for alternatives you can look at the documentation at the top of the script.

If you still use #Chrome, you may want to know that #Google is limiting its extension capabilities because they do not like ad blocking. Google makes your browser to work against you by twiddling the buttons, as @pluralistic said. Work against this by using #Firefox a browser that will always be yours.

Remember! Firefox will keep supporting MV2 extensions (e.g., uBlock Origin) alongside the new MV3 extensions. And yes, you should use MV3 extensions whenever possible, especially since Firefox doesn’t support domain restrictions for MV2 extensions like Chromium based browsers do.

Firefox's annoyances:

* Arcane profile management. Yes, yes, yes, I'm a software engineer. However, I'd rather deal with a nicer interface than what Firefox provides.

* Tab syncing is iffy. Apparently pinned tab are just not synced because "that's what *some* people prefer". :headache: It doesn't look like the tab order is preserved, either. :why:

I've moved my Your Autistic Life profile from Chrome to Firefox. It was *mostly* painless. The most painful thing was that it did not replicate my open tabs.

(By the way, if you did not know this. Firefox has a way to import your Chrome data. Google it! :madjoy: )

I have many pen names and I have one profile for each in Chrome, so I'm not done yet. I've moved one other profile. I still need to move my... er... plain boring profile. (I mean one I created first, before I had any pen name.)

There are two profiles that won't get moved. One is for a pen name that I killed last week. The other one is for a pen name I'm going to kill soon.

I'm trying to concentrate on Your Autistic Life.

While I dislike #Google deliberately slowing down browsers / extensions they don't like, it got me thinking... what if the same thing was done back? Is that OK? Like an extension that places an error looking message on screen to Chrome users saying something like "This page is slow due to Google Chrome." and then delivered assets at a bare minimal speed.

I'm not convinced this is a good or bad idea at t his point. I just find it interesting as a thought exercise.

My experience is that bookshop(.)org is receptive to kind, polite feedback if you think the steps above could use improvement. They'll do bookshop outreach if you ask them to, in case you know of an unlisted Black-owned store.

They use browser cookies and affiliate URLs (think now defunct; I'm sure that was their model). Human frailty means you will eventually forget to check. Private browsing, clear cookies, switch device or browser, "*boop* what preferred bookstore?" 😖
I pointed this out via a decent email dialog with #BookshopDotOrg over 12 months ago. The fact that it still works in this deeply suboptimal way is intentional, if only intentional neglect. and are absolutely part of the coalition in my mind. Both are fantastic candidates for #AdversarialInteroperability — like maybe a #Bookwyrm plugin or #Firefox browser extension — to smooth over the rough edges until they do the work on their end.

I still think it's cool that firefox honors man:foo.1 style URI and will open the Help Browser with the man page in question.

Experimenting with features that have been on the bleeding edge for some time is weird.

Firefox (left) supports Colr fonts but not initial-letter.

Safari (middle) used to support Colr fonts and supports initial-letter.

Chrome supports both but initial-letter still needs to be prefixed.

I think I'll play with fonts with colors in them. Too bad Safari users won't see them. They'll get whole word, that has to be enough.

In my endeavours towards relying on Google less I've learned that in #Firefox you can add any search box from any site as a bookmark with a keyword associated with it.

E.g. I've added with the keyword !dic, Cambridge Dictionary with !cam and Meriam-Webster with !mer so instead of typing "something definition" into my browser's bar and then clicking on a search result I can type e.g. "!dic something" and get to the result right away. #FirefoxTips

I've got love/hate relationships with #Firefox and #Vivaldi.

Firefox feels sluggish on my phone. I don't like that it refreshes pages every time I switch, even if it's just for a second to check something. The desktop browser just locked up on me a minute ago.

But, I like the way fonts render way more than with Chromium browsers. I like that the interface is pretty minimalist. I like that the screen capture tool will recognize individual elements which makes getting screen caps of, say, Mastodon posts really easy. It remembers where I was on PDFs.

I really like Thunderbird as a mail client (though my old #Microsoft #Hotmail accounts can check emails but not send them, for some reason). I love the simple HTML viewing. It's way better than other clients like Vivaldi's built-in client or #KMail.

Hey #Microsoft,

the #EU @EU_Commission and their citizens will probably not like it that you don't give users a choice on which browsers to use for your new "search input" that can be opened from the Desktop.

Instead, with this search it seems you want to force users to use your own #Edge #browser.

But I want to use #Firefox for this new search input! So what's up with that!?

#Law #EUCompetitionLaw

A screenshot of the new search input floating desktop window on Windows 10. The language is in german.

You can enter text or a url in the search input and, when submitted, will search the web via _the Edge_ web browser. The browser is _not_ configurable for this new Windows feature. It will always use the Edge web browser, although one can have another _default_ web browser configured for the whole OS (like Firefox).
