How do you do that for sites that put their adblock detection as part of inline scripts along with scripts necessary to actually use the site?

Do you have some example sites? Like there's no one rule to rule them all, it's basically different for each site, but then I don't use annoying as poo poo sites often that do this either, I think two that come to mind are.

The mobile version of Twitter is driving me nuts with its constant nag screens that just keep coming if I use cosmetic filtering.

I don't have a Twitter, nor will I ever. I just want to be able to look at some tweets in peace.
Blocking the inline script completely breaks it and it won't show anything except that lovely loading icon.

You already can. See the discussion starting here: https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...7#post477337860

(At some point, this will change when Firefox switches away from XUL's moz-boxes to CSS flexboxes, but it should still be possible to do the same thing, just with different vocabulary.)

Attention 57+-havers using the beta (.1337) version of HTTPS Everywhere: The version of HTTPS Everywhere on eff.org/https-everywhere is now a webextension and therefore works on 57+.

EDIT: It doesn't share the same author name as the one on addons.mozilla.org - heads up.

What's the take on Waterfox? I'm using it, and don't see many problems and I can see that it will still run extensions that don't pass the new webextensions criteria in the future?

Fine for now while it's basically identical to the main Firefox codebase but it'll become worse over time as updates that cannot be backported show up, particularly security fixes. Having access to all the current extensions is good but that will also stagnate over time as people switch to targeting the new API.

I honestly just hope Waterfox sticks around as Firefox with as much of its bullshit stripped out as possible. The extensions thing isn't that important.

Old Firefox could last for ten thousand years and SALR would still get clobbered by the move to XenForo.

Maybe.

I really see no reason why it should, as there's nothing about XenForo that requires drastic changes to the sorts of things SALR scrapes.

The button in the navbar that takes you to the last unread post of a thread, since I tend to have the regular threads I post in open all week long on several computers. Typing in &goto=newpost like a cave man is annoying.

Um... I don't have SALR installed, but I see a button to the left of each thread title that shows how many new posts in a thread, and takes me to the newest unread post when clicked. Isn't that the same thing?

They're talking about a button SALR can add to the bottom corner of the browser in multi-page threads that lets you jump to the first unread post.

Every time Firefox crashes for me, whether it's a tab or the whole thing, I write in the crash reporter comment box that they should fix their several-year-old GC bugs instead of sticking their fingers into their ears and going "LALALALA FAULTY RAM LALALALA!"
I've only been wrong twice in the last year.

Those two times were a new top crash that was immediately WONTFIXed and a different 6 year-old bug.
But, gotta push those new and exciting changes that everybody is waiting for with bated breath!

I once saw one of my Firefox processes taking up 6GB of memory. Using about:performance, I was able to identify a couple tabs that were running on that process, but it wasn't that helpful. It seems that Mozilla actively tries to prevent you from being able to figure out which tabs are being run on which process; it is so infuriating. Anyways, what I ended up doing was going through my tabs and closing them, seeing if the memory dropped, then CTRL+SHIFT+T to re-open them. Eventually I found the runaway tab and my memory dropped down from around 6GB to 300MB or so. So, success.

I still can't believe that Mozilla ends up killing every single possible way to identify where the problems are. I am fairly sure it is some sort of Javascript garbage collection bug caused by extremely lovely webpages, but I just am unable to actually figure it out since there are literally no tools available anymore.

Reached 5 GB the other day. Not sure which page caused it, but ad block fighting against an ad script can cause runawas like that I suppose. Another problem has (re)appeared on 56.0.2 for me. After a while, with many tabs open, the browser starts locking up for half a second every 10-ish seconds. It's particularly noticable when you're mid scroll. Apparently it has something to do with tab state saving and writing that info to disk. I use undo close tab a lot, so I don't want to disable it, but it's really annoying nonetheless. Maybe because I'm running single process.

TST works awesome in v57 and has for a while? It should even autoupdate normally through AMO, no beta builds required.

Using the internet like a normal rear end person is completely awful, and if I wanted to do that, I'd have switched to Chrome 5 years ago.

I guess I should qualify that. I am 100% dependent on Umatrix to make the internet not horrible and slow. TST was still legacy when I upgraded I think, and I got rid of it because I was having bad memory leaks the week before I upgraded as well.

It feels cool to browse that way but I've realized that it made me less organized, shortened my attention span, and whenever I had to use a browser with normal tabs I was sort of thrown off. I feel like it's easier to keep on task now when I have a limited amount of space to work with. If I need it for later but not right away, I make a bookmark.

I tried Nightly out and being forced to drop a bunch of my extensions honestly is for the best. I also used to have a Stylish skin for the browser as a whole (Firefox Edge) but the new UI is just fine on its own and now I donít have to deal with the Stylish privacy concerns.
