this is the only part that bothers me 'The whole thing seems to be, and at least attracts all the crazies, about how to beat the jewgle femto mozilla botnet into submission and be based.', I never engaged in this kind of stuff and I never ever will, as a european citizen I do not engage in any kind of alt right trump conspiracy shit, in fact I don't even bother being informed about it and I don't like how this was associated to librewolf since in my short stay I never saw anybody act in a way that made me even think about it

Obviously this is not about me in particular, I just hate being under this constant 'american umbrella' when it comes to this kind of stuff

Yeah tbh as long as the software itself doesn't promote any of that stuff I think making such a remark about its userbase is a meaningless rhetorical signal, if anything.
There are some useful bits of criticism in there, but that ain't it

I hate when the open source community feels the need to have one mastodontic central solution, what's wrong with having options
just share your opinion and move on, the more the better as long as people are aware of what works and what doesn't in a project, in the end I would rather have a good selection of privacy tools to pick from than a single one to which everyone depends on
just my 2 cents
would it bother anyone if I were to leave a polite reply on github? I would like to mention that I appreciate the technical criticism but that we do not engage in any kind of conspiracy bullshit

I like to adapt the wise words someone once said on twitter to pretty much everything: https://nitter.42l.fr/mbennardo/status/1379534416800841731 :D

More seriously though: I get all your points, I'd personally just not bother – but I'm not the boss of you and wouldn't even dream of trying to stop you ;)

One thing that came to my mind recently which I forgot
Startpage was sold to an ad company, should we have it on the front page of our website?
Bert van der Weerd
@stanzabird_gitlab
startpage?
i dont recall that being on the website

It's confusing to use Gitter and Matrix at the same time, the thread looks different here on Matrix

I'd love to do some work on the website, but I'm kind of waiting on Jennifer to resurface again

Looks good, perhaps changing Startpage to Searx that seems to be it lately and Startpage is now owned by a ad company @fxbrit_gitlab said
The white is nice stylish, I'm in favour :)
It makes the word 'LibreWolf' more dominant

local searx instance on docker (behind a vpn) is so good

i've removed references to them in the docs. i'll leave a reference in the README of the settings repo. i might add a link to oakenpants' comment there.

@fxbrit_gitlab
it seems right, thanks shreyas
I think we are doing a good work with cleaning stuff and as bert said the reddit community seems to be growing, sweet
btw did any of you create the community on lemmy? it was a pleasent surprise to see LW there lol

The only Lemmy I know is in heaven now, drinking scotch forever ^.^

I will take a look at the work that ms. Oakenpants did. I'm new and this stuff obviously has a long history

on a more serious note I agree with this, I hate the 'throw you under the bus attitude' but saying that arkenfox stuff is legit is a no brainer tbh

unfortunately, it's (to my knowledge) currently not possible to change the locked settings with the flatpak releases – sorry about that! we're still looking for a way to make it possible somehow, but it's a bit more complicated due to the sandboxing.
1 reply
what settings specifically do you want to change? if it's something that would make sense to have "changeable" for other users as well, it might make sense to unlock them for the next release :)

I just changed to custom privacy and now its locked to that. bummer
dangerous and deceptive content warnings settings doesn't persist btw
there's a toggle settings executable in a few flatpak librewolf folders but they return an error

hey @alveolarclick_gitlab thanks for the MR ^.^ Can you take a look at this document about the changes to outdated sections of the website?

I'm taking a look at this now, and I love it!! I'll go through and figure out what I might be able to take care of sooner rather than later. I feel compelled to apologize again for going quiet for periods of time - I work in a crisis center, so sometimes things get hectic over here

hi, just for your info, site https://librewolf-community.gitlab.io/docs/drm/ is somewhat outdated.... for working plugin you need enable defaultPref("media.eme.enabled", false);
defaultPref("media.gmp-provider.enabled", false); too.
without these options enabled, the widevine plugin will not be downloaded or installed. It took me a good half an hour to figure it out, because the two options are not listed in the above docs. would like to add it the :-)

Unfortunately this doesn't work for me. With everything in the DRM section commented except "media.eme.enabled" and ".media.gmp-provider.enabled", I always get the "Librewolf is installing components..." message. Does anyone have the same issue?

Oh no! Looks like I might need to adjust the language in that section. I wish I could help, but I don't really know what could be going on here either...

Ehi Jennifer, looking into this in order to make it as straightforward as possible, keeping you posted!

TicToc: I'll take a look at this; I'm currently getting the 88.0-1 flatpak release ready, so maybe I can sneak something in there as a short term solution ;)

=> the toggle settings executable never really seemed to have worked, it's just not removed yet for hoping we might actually get somewhere with that approach..

@alveolarclick_gitlab Fabrizio sorted it out, the results on the DRM are on this page: https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/browser/windows/-/blob/docs/docs/drm_blurp.md
