Firefox 57: I am liking the new Firefox pretty good it works fine on the Laptop and I think it is faster on the Tablet and the Phone. All the extension that I like are now back too!
The Noscript Extension is the one I feel like I can’t live without and it is back and running well. It has a much different interface but does much the same things as before. It is being updated most every day and getting better every day.
The Privacy Setting Extension is back too but is coming alone slower. It is a interface that kind of looks in at the About:Config setting of Firefox and puts many of the privacy setting in one panel with enable/disable switches. Very handy.
Pictures: My Little Black Friday.
A set of sheets for $24.00
In the Walmart Black Friday Sales Paper had the 1TB backup dive for $45.00 and I was not going to bite because I wanted a bigger drive(maybe next year) …. but when I went to the store they had it marked for $29.00 so ….. I bite! They had the 32gig SD cards for $7.00 and the 64gig SD Cards for $14.00 and I got two of each, I seem to find a use for them here and there.
Temptations: Little Temptations: Home Depot had the new 20 volt Dewalt Drill with two batteries and charger on sale for $100.00, I have the older 18 volt version so I passed for this year.
Big temptations: B&H had some fine deals on the Mac-book Pro Late 2016 model …. but no, I was good and did not bite!
There were some pretty tasty deals on Canon Cameras too but again I was good and did not bite 🙂
In my new site, I park the truck just outside my door and I can see that it will not be long before I need a set of tires for it and I think it will likely need other work soon too, that really keeps the temptations for the fun stuff down!
Exercise: I walked my two miles today.
No pictures today.
The new one: Well today I see that the new updated No-script extension got updated and it is very different for sure. I am trying to figure out how things work on it, the user interface is completely different for sure. Not sure if any of you use this Firefox Extension or not but I think it is the most important extensions Firefox has. If any of you use this I would love to hear what you think about it.
This is pretty much what the user interface looks like.
And as best I can tell for now is that ….
Note: Folks don’t write this down, this is just the best that I can make out about how things work in this new version.
(1) The first icon is to set everything to default on that site, now I am not sure what that means …. but I think if you set it to default it will be off the white list when you next go back to setting.
(2) The second icon will set the site to trusted and allow all script (note: the lock has more to do with that) I also think this will white list the site unless you click the clock, see 4 below.
(3) The third icon Will set all script to not trusted and block all script on that site.
(4) Clicking the little clock mean that this is a temporary setting for this session of browsing and will be gone when you next start-up …. ?
(5) Clicking the 4th icon allow you to pick the custom setting about what kind of script is allow. I have not gone there yet!
(5) The Lock …. when allowing a page … if the lock is green and locked it only allows HTTPS script and if the lock is red and unlocked it allows both HTTP and HTTPS script.
This is my best guesses for now, would love to hear from someone who really know their way around this new extension!
Exercise: I rode the bike today (cross country) For 8.9 miles.
Firefox 57: Well I lost a few extensions but two that I hope will get updated soon, Noscript and Privacy Settings. These are my two favorite 😦 I read that the Noscript extension will be coming back soon but I am not sure about Privacy Setting extension. I am using uMatrix for now but will drop it when I get back Noscript.
Exercise: I walked yesterday with one of the other RVers(Randy) in the area fr about 2.6 miles. Today was chores day so no exercise today.
Firefox Update: Well for us Firefox users with lots of extensions tomorrow is a big day with the Firefox 57 update. All extensions that are Legacy will stop working after taking the update. I think I have about 7 of them for now but some says they will be updated to work with 57, so we will see. Your Firefox may look a little different too, but it should be much faster!

Password Manager: I am still playing around with the password managers, Lastpass and Bitwarden. After using Bitwarden(free) for about a week or so and Lastpass getting it latest update I switched back to Lastpass and it is a more refined program, however I have to pay for Lastpass(premium). It is pretty low cost but still I pay, which I don’t mind if it stays updated and working right. However during the last week I have found that Bitwarden is a good program and very usable plus it is free and open source. One of the pitfalls of Bitwarden is that it’s 2 factor authentication is a bit harder to use(a thing I use) and two: it too has a premium account like Lastpass. You can get a free account on both and a paid account on both. Maybe I will figure out a way to use one of the free accounts to back up my paid account. Oh, one big plus for Lastpass is that you can use it offline.
So ….for now I will keep both up to date and play with them.

Exercise: I walked a couple of miles today.
ü vs ✓: A check mark stump me up for a day and half!!! I kid you not …. I wanted to put a check mark like this ✓ in a document I have and when I did the copy from the Character Map I got this ü instead of the ✓ and I even looked up the keystroke for doing this which is Alt+2713 and it still put ü in?%$! So after much research I found a register hack that I use to put in a new string value and was finally able to get my check mark by using the Keystrokes Alt+2713 !!! Still I cannot get the Character Map to copy many of the Character right, such as the check mark. I know a lot of it has to do with the language and keyboard type but after a day and a half and finally getting my check mark, I called it a tie and give up 😒
Am I the only one that gets so hung up on little things like this and can not let it go, are some of you other folks like this??? LOL
