is there a possibility to save the new tab tiles in a text form?
clockers
so why hasn't encryption for emails become standardized? isn't it absurd we're still sending email via plain text?
degva
Hello guys, I just updated to FF 40 and I don't have the devedition theme. does anyone knows why is this?
I have browser.devedition.theme.enabled to true
alex_mayorga
degva: Get the "real deal" at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/
degva
I remember I had an issue with the dev version, and that's why I switched back to the normal one... I don't remember what is was :/
I will give it another shot
evdw87
clockers: there are alternatives by now https://protonmail.ch/
degva
Well, even though I'll use the dev edition. Why on the version 40 I don't have the option to change it?
evdw87
clockers: someone also suggested an open source alternative to it, can't remember which one
clockers
evdw87: What I'm seeking is something any idiot can use without knowing anything, and I think that's entirely doable. If it's done, it just needs more people piling on it. It should have already happened. We shouldn't have plain text emails in this day and age.
         

evdw87
clockers: I surely agree with you
clockers
evdw87 do you think that link you gave me is the future?
evdw87
even more bad is, most people don't even know what plain text is
alex_mayorga
degva: Maybe kbrosnan knows.
evdw87
clockers: I really don't know, I registered and haven't actually "used" it. At least they have a slick interface.
alex_mayorga
degva: What was that about:config again?
evdw87
clockers: Bad thing is that there are alternatives just like with encrypted chat clients. I guess they all user their own solution without a similar protocol
degva
alex_mayorga, I didn't have the option to switch to the developer editions theme
clockers
evdw87: couldn't something like WC3 have the weight to make an encrypted email standard? Perhaps not the exact encryptions themselves, but how they plug into any client
evdw87
clockers: I don't know if that's also their domain
haven't actually ever thought about that
b0at
it's not
clockers
whose domain is it? Or does someone need to adopt it?
b0at
there was a gpg extension for thunderbird. i never checked it out because i didn't have anybody to send to.
also key management makes my head hurt.
evdw87
b0at: same for me
clockers
I used it, but I couldn't get my friends to use it
so it was pointless
it wasn't dumbed down enough... automated enough to abstract the details away
although I must ask
what was wrong with key management?
alex_mayorga
degva: browser.devedition.theme.enabled it seems.
degva
alex_mayorga, that one. Yes, it doesn't work on this new version :/
evdw87
clockers: guess the only thing you can do is spam social media and pray people will adopt is :p
*it
but that still raises the question what the best service is
alex_mayorga
: clockers https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc1984/ might be an interesting read for you =)
xihiro
where do I put any of the codes suggested? http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&p=14275379
         

b0at
xihiro: in a new style with the Stylish extension or in <your profile directory>/chrome/userChrome.css
you can find the profile directory with the button on about:support
xihiro
b0at, chrome?
b0at
yes, that's what the non-content part of a window is called, and that's what that css styles.
xihiro
b0at, I'm in the profile directory, but I can't find chrome anywhere
b0at
you can create that subdirectory
this describes it a little bit, too: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/XUL/Tutorial/Modifying_the_Default_Skin#Customize_with_userChrome.css
evdw87
b0at: isn't it easier to manage with stylish?
b0at
very much so
xihiro
b0at, ok, worked well with the chrome thing
does this make firefox slower?
b0at
no, it's just another tiny bit of style on top of a lot of other style used to create the theme
create the look of the browser, rather
xihiro
is there a way to make firefox faster?
my pc is quite old
specing
yes, disable javascript
install adblock and disconnect
evdw87
xihiro: as long as you don't style any text to change every first character of a sentence (or similar) you're pretty safe
CPngN
adblock edge + NoScript
specing
disconnect is a must, otherwise facepuke and others will track you
evdw87
CPngN: why not ublock origin?
b0at
ublock origin has a couple of lists that block social network things, also
xihiro
specing, how do I diconnect?
b0at
(which also work in abp)
xihiro
I am using adguard, is it ok?
evdw87
xihiro, specing: disconnect is build in without the use of exceptions
specing
evdw87: ?
evdw87
privacy.trackingprotection.enabled > true
CPngN
evdw87: why not adblock edge?
I tried a ublock or some sort a while back and it was wonky
specing
evdw87: does it cover everything disconnect covers?
evdw87
CPngN: it's much more light weight
specing: it uses the exact same list
specing
interesting
evdw87
but there's no interface
specing
how is this list updated?
b0at
there is the little shield in the identity box on the url bar to disable tracking protection for a site
that's as much ui as it gets
evdw87
b0at: ah yes, you're right about that, totally forgot
specing: if I'm correct it's downloaded from mozilla severs, I need to look that up though
b0at
there are a couple of urls in about:config under browser.trackingprotection. that it must pull from
and they're mozilla.com by default, yes
evdw87
CPngN: btw, ublock and ublock origin are two different extensions
you might have picked the wrong one
xihiro
ty, noscritp does seem to make it faster
evdw87
btw, adblock edge discontinued in favor of ublock origin as it says on the the extensions page
xihiro
thought it changes the way google presents stuff
evdw87
xihiro: you need to note that javascript is disabled by default so it breaks many functions of websites which rely on javascript
xihiro
evdw87, I see
I just don't get why the internet seems a lot faster after formatting, but not the day after
and by internet I mean the browser
evdw87
xihiro: it's how you would like to use the web, you can either make exceptions for all pages, or you could use the option to globally allow javascript on all pages and only profit from the basic protection they offer
xihiro
evdw87, ok, so what would be the best option? using noscript?
evdw87
that was a sidenote about noscript
xihiro: it's complex if you've never used it, on the other hand, if you're going to make exceptions on a side-by-side basis, you get a better idea about how webpages function
the resources they load
tanath
there's also umatrix from the creator of ublock (now origin)
for managing js and other things
xihiro
evdw87, hmm
CPngN
evdw87: hmm ok thx
xihiro
i now removed it and google still looks weird
