>* The new add-ons blocklist has been enabled to improve performance and scalability.
Firefox v80 introduces an "add-ons blocklist":

>When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons that go against user expectations or otherwise risk user privacy and security, it takes steps to block them from running in Firefox. With a hard block, the add-on is disabled in Firefox, and users are not able to override the block.

Always great news when a corporation cares so much about your security and knows more about the users expectation than the user himself. This means they can now not only install 'plugins' without your permission but also block any add-on and you can not do anything about it. Trannies making firefox better day by day.

There is no good alternative for tab management customization, it's one of the only remaining strengths trannyfox has over other browsers that are even shittier. Well, there is actually an alternative, Vivaldi has ridiculous customization for everything including tabs (tree-style etc.) and it's chromium based so loads stuff fast as well, BUT its UI tends to get laggy over time if you have a lot of tabs open. It's pretty much the best browser out there with regards to features, give it a try and if it doesn't slow down you should just use that.

You are ever so slightly wrong.

I do, but it was in a much MUCH different tone then how communism has been thrown around in the 2010s. Back in the 00s with FSF recognized free software its was more about community involvement and taking back shit that was viewed to be falling in the hands of entities like MS with heavily proprietary shit like IE6 which was breaking the web at the time. But now the motif of communism is thrown around as a race to the bottom with canceling each other, etc.
It may have only been a few years back, but already things have changed so rapidly that it was a "different time" back then.

Mozilla hired a communist to design their posters. Dude who made this is a proud commie. Incidentally, he also designed Obama's logo. He knew exactly what he wanted to convey with these "proletariat" commie imagery.

>> No.77428675

I was more speaking about the use of commie imagery in open source software in general from around 98-05. Obviously there was self described commies involved, but much of it was more just a general motif of resistance to the shift to proprietary internet that was happening at the time, most involved were not actually commie. I'm close to my 40s and was involved in their community when it was still called Mozilla Browser, I'm old enough to know the time well.
Like I said, it was a different time. Context has wildly changed since when.
