    it is called "distinguish"

    Wait, I just noticed that windows cross-compiling is already fully working
    I somehow completely missed that

    Oh, yes.. It works in a VM, but not yet under Docker

    At least last time I checked. I could spend a few hours today to see if the wine64 executable still crashes under docker.

    Oh, wow.. you can build it under docker, and wine64 doesn't crash :) Am I happy to have just installed arch, I got to try that too

    well, so far no joy tbh.. :/ But it doesn't crash on wine64 anymore but on something else, so that's a win probably

    hi folks, i've been playing with openai api's for a few days, and what seems feasible for us is to create a 'librewolf-openai-integration' patch. this one will have us LW know the api key (stored in pref or something) and for any selected text in a web page, have the popup menu add a menu item 'query with openai', which would do just that in a new tab... what do you guys think?

    sounds like something better suited for an independent extension, I'd think?
    (with not having thought more than 5 second about it – I'll do some more thinking later? ;)

    I really don't know much about how Firefox works on the inside, I just build it.. If it's possible as an extension that's always better, yes.

    Another idea was to add a menu item 'open profile' that displays the available profiles, and when selected opens a new window with that profile (like how it works in about:profiles).

    good evening folks! I was asked about a small interview about LibreWolf, but as we don't have a real lead dev and I don't want to be mistakenly identified as it, I just asked the person to join this room and ask whatever they want to know about the project.

    I thought I'd share, just in case you get asked questions in this room. I honestly didn't feel comfortable either going on record or speaking in name of all of us so I "refused" and sent an invite link.

    I know we are losing visibility this way but I like the project being seen as a collective effort. let me know if you agree on the move, and if one of you wants to give the interview we could always discuss it and arrange it.

    PS: it's a youtube interview on a Linux-focused channel
    I mean, not that having a lead dev would take away the community aspect, I just don't feel like I'm the lead dev nor I want to be seen as one. let's say we have a core of devs lulz 😄

    sure. no prob. people talking about librewolf is people talking about web browser privacy and security. I'm all for it :o)
    But, I would say they could also sample our main channel and reddit. do you still post to Lemmy?

    I wonder how many prefs were removed in the process, I was keeping track of it at some point but I can't remember

    I was going to write a python script that checks how many lines in the file start with either pref(", defaultPref(" or lockPref(" lol

    your solution sounds a lot cleaner but I have a soft spot for python because, well.. I just feel comfortable using it

    went with:

    def count():
        with open("librewolf.cfg") as config_file:
            prefs = 0
            lines = config_file.readlines()
            for line in lines:
                if (
                ''.join(line[0:5]) == "pref(" or
                ''.join(line[0:12]) == "defaultPref(" or
                ''.join(line[0:9]) == "lockPref("
                ):
                    prefs+=1
        print(prefs)

    it says we have 195 prefs in our config file

    it was 820 prefs before the revamp

    among others I added a faq entry about DDG and and the great firewall of china --> https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/website/-/merge_requests/62/diffs#816ee6d8556db82e9c7d3bfb4c915c5bbb564412_559_610
    I avoided getting into the weeds and just went straight to the point with that we have been mentioning in issues for a bit. however I'm not sure if I should be more detailed, so I'm asking here :-)

    Looks good to me - as you said, keeping it on point. More details there would probably invite waaay more complaints/discussions than this was l way ^^

    I agree. Btw, arch is a delight except for needing an aur kernel module for zfs

    Yeah, that's a bit annoying if you can't boot and need to a live ISO.. /o\

    I need to manually patch that aur thing too. But it's ok because if I ever switch to bsd, I have zfs there

    I have one 4 tb hdd for mass storage (zfs) and one system disk, ssd1tb, that has seen several distros by now 😊
    I need the patch because it's not recognizing the right kernel version when building
