Cockles, mussels, rainy days,
Seaweed and sand castles, icy waves,
Deck chairs, rubber dinghies,
Old vests, braces dangling down,
A suntanned stranded starfish in a daze.
Skipping the reason why, I gave the server-guy at our place an Admin account on my box to fix a really weird problem w.r.t. server access/recognition. No problem with that - it was fixed in a day or so.
Unfortunately, his account was a new instance and when he opened FireFox it did an update, updating all (only one instance on machine). Suddenly I went from Ver.56 to Ver 62. I lost three add-ons. They changed the interface and didn't care to maintain backward compatibility.
Well - one of them, FireFTP, I was sort of preparing for and had a configured FileZilla ready to roll. The other items, including Better Privacy, really didn't have an adequate replacement. OK - I thought I'd just adapt and get use to the new version. Besides, it's a better match to what the company's VM was serving to users.
Man - that thing really sucked. A good deal of yesterday was spent fighting with it. Privacy settings didn't let me manage cookies - and even when I logged off (yahoo, for example), suddenly it knew who I was - and the storage manager they have? It opened in their debugger and was basically useless. Consider hours were eaten up trying to make this thing usable (and maintain privacy). As they say - screw it.
I had two options at hand: (1) roll back to ver 56 if I can, or (2) change to WaterFox.
Fortunately, despite much discouragement on the part of Mozilla, I did finally get a download of Ver 56. It restored two of the plugins. FireFTP, which had apparently been wipe (not showing in the plugin/addons) had to be downloaded from the author's site. Joyfully, my configurations still lived on.
So, it seems Mozilla is where those genius' that ask us to do their homework, via Q&A, have found a suitable work environment.
