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). ❤️🩹

Merci pour ce partage !
#firefox just added a feature to copy a link without the tracking information! Now when I send somebody a link it won't blow up into a zillion characters of tracking data with a link hidden somewhere inside!
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…
I don't care because... I'm a #Firefox user 🔥 🦊
why people are so blind about #corporations, #companies? like the only thing they care about is making money. #microsoft, discord, #youtube, #unity. "they have to make money, it's okay they add ads and payed features". are people just okay when they're treated as living moneybags? i use #linux and own my computer. i use #firefox and own my internet serfing. i use #foss #androidrom and own my phone. #opensource is a thing! people make software to help others. if you WANT to thank, you can donate.
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 is very weird. Any idea what could be causing this? Has anyone seen this behavior before?
Does anyone know how to fix the Low FPS issue on Firefox mobile for YouTube? This is really annoying, for normal YouTube videos. I just got a click on the settings cogged. And that fixes it, but for YouTube shorts. It's just permanently at a low frame rate.

I must say that Google is doing a very good job at promoting #Firefox lately.

Chrome’s next weapon in the War on Ad Blockers: Slower extension updates
Microsoft blocking Firefox login with FIDO2 key on office.com
@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).
So I personally would love to see more of the knowledge and optimizations in MP finding their way upstream :)
for example you pass this configuration:
["firefox", "emacs", "kitty"]
and harpon will switch over those windows in order if those are running...
there is other options in there for alternatives you can look at the documentation at the top of the script.
Interesting. I closed all my Chrome windows. Then I do a check with `ps` and I still find Chrome processes running.
"Feature?" (Yep, the quotes are deliberate.)
I had to use `pkill chrome` twice to kill the stragglers.
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.
Si todavía estás usando Google #Chrome, que sepas que la compañía que lo desarrolla trabaja activamente contra tí y va a limitar las extensiones que te protegen, como los bloqueadores de publicidad. Pásate a #Firefox para que tu navegador siga siendo tuyo.
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.
* 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.
Chromium-based browsers have such a better UX with tabs that switching to #Firefox becomes a crippling experience. Apparently, I'm not even the only one with this problem https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/ideas/native-tab-grouping-more-customizable-tab-bar/idi-p/303
Er dette verdens beste nettlostillegg?
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.
By remaining to use a chromium browser, you're assisting in fucking up the web. I get it, it was nice and shiny. But it's time to come back to Firefox, folks.
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 smile.amazon.com; 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.
Bookshop.org and last.fm 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.
#Firefox Beta als .deb-Paket für #Debian-basierte #Linux-Distributionen verfügbar https://www.soeren-hentzschel.at/firefox/firefox-beta-als-deb-paket-fuer-debian-basierte-linux-distributionen-verfuegbar/
The new off-main-thread Windows Jump List backend for #firefox that we've been working on during The Joy of Coding has been enabled by default for Nightly! It's held to Nightly for now while we monitor it for behavioural issues.
Is it possible to make #Firefox follow the system color scheme without having it trying to mimick the system GTK3 stylesheet? Ideally it would just stop trying to do that and use its stock light/dark style everywhere, but I'd be happy to hear any workarounds for now.
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.
Firefox for Android is adding support for 400 add-ons
here's the ones that support android: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/android/search/?sort=hotness&type=extension (yes, #noScript is there!)
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 Dictionary.com 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
Post >> Firefox on the brink? • The Big Three may effectively be down to a Big Two, and right quick.
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.
But I want to use #Firefox for this new search input! So what's up with that!?
