the constant shittification of browsers

Step 1: Locate and Open Profile Directory [..] Create a chrome directory within the designated profile directory which will host the necessary userContent.css file [..] In the address bar, open about:config and set the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets setting to true

Just think how needlessly obscure and ass-backwards that is.

Or take this:

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/935dc4/is_it_no_longer_possible_to_delete_cookies/

I've been using Firefox's containers with Multi-Account Containers almost since the extension was released. One of things I did when I first started using it was set up containers for certain sites, obviously. However that left cookies and such for those sites laying around in the default container, still. So I went to `Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Data`, and was able to delete the default container cookies for each site individually while leaving the cookies for the site's specified container.

Today, I attempted to do the same. I created a container for a site, opened the site in that container, logged in, told it to always open in that container, then went to manage the data so I could delete the data from the default container. However, I see how way of doing that. In fact, the manage data popup doesn't even show to which containers each data belongs.

Was this functionality removed from Firefox? If so, why? If not, what changed, and what am I missing?


The responses are to either use third party add-ons, or:

You can delete individual cookies via the Storage Manager within Firefox's dev tools. Can't remember if the storage manager is enabled out of the box, you might need to enable it in dev tools settings.


Fantastic.

too much syntax sugar isn't good for you

Imagine someone removing indexes from their database because that's "neater"... well, yeah, it is, if you don't think about anything but the most surface level. Not only is stupidity like this becoming the standard, we're raising devs that have never seen anything but utter foolishness. You can call that "development", but that alone doesn't make it so.

a very happy pop song about war crimes

Verse 1
And the start of world war iii
And the start of world war iii
We the were at war with ourselves
Never meant to feel it in another mans arms

Pre-Chorus
Before the war she was perfect
Before the war she was perfect

Chorus
So war, war, war
Yes, all of them
Sing it out for me
War, war, war, yeah, yeah

Verse 2
And everything that we do
Is like a fast ride
It oughta be a crime
But these are the days a young girl livin his life

Pre-Chorus
Now sometimes life brings winter
The cold war. All the street signs glow

Chorus
So war, war, war
Yes, all of them
Sing it out for me
War, war, war, yeah, yeah

Bridge
Getting off the war ground
Each town I go, it feels like a limit

Chorus
So war, war, war
Yes, all of them
Sing it out for me
War, war, war, yeah, yeah

from a very happy rap song about books

And when we came home, I put my feet upon the ground
And then I read my books until I returned to the thinking
You better get your books up
You better get your books up

Crawl into my book, enjoy my masterpiece
Feeling on your body, wanna take you to paradise

A few months ago, I was missing my old friend and former Business Week tech columnist Steve Wildstrom, who died in 2015. I wanted to see a picture of him, but finding one would be a “needle in a haystack” problem. Then I remembered that we were once together in Berlin, so I typed in that word in Google Photos and up came pictures from that 2008 trip.

I really, really dislike Google by now, agree with the article in general and don't mean to victim blame, but ignoring Google for a second: I can't believe how incredibly lazy people still are about their data. If "your photos" aren't files on your own physical storage devices, organized into a folder structure you actually thought about and are willing to adapt and improve over the years, they're not your photos, and you should get your shit sorted. Learn what you have to and, ask for help whom you have to in order achieve some basic independence in your personal affairs.
