substituting curry leaves with fresh basil is like replacing a banana with an onion
Yes, I know, yet I wanted some kind of herb in it. (It was Thai basil by the way, I bought it frozen from a Thai food shop.)
The problem is, we can not get curry leaves here, not fresh, or frozen. I got some dried ones once, but they had no flavour. Same as dried methi leaves I got years back, so I avoid dried herbs these days. Shame, sigh I could use curry leaves.
I'm still on ff v56, before they went with the multi process thing, whatever.
Option: Updates blah: I've chosen "Never check for updates"
... not the 'auto update,' not even the 'check and ask if I wannit', I chose NEVER check.
and every time I start Firefox a friendly message at the top:
Your Firefox is critically out of date. An update is required to stay secure.
Firstly, what part of NEVER means please check if there are updates?
Secondly: the version I have is [set] beyond secure enough for what/where I go; what part of 'don't make up bullshit' do they not understand?
Once upon a time only microsoft did this stuff, now it's normal business everywhere.
May be time to move back to a version in the 40's/30's - see if that stupid message (and ignoring peoples settings) is in even older versions.
Sigh, guess I shouldn't complain too much, not as if I'm on thebleeding edge.
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
Pretty much all of my system are stopped at 56 because the changed the interface for the plugins. As a result, one of my favorite (non-passive, like an ad blocker) is FireFTP. The author decided not to modify it to their new methodology. I could use any of lots of other FTP clients, but this is so handy.
As an FYI for browser-dom candidates. I hung with seamonkey for years, until they made cookie-handling an absolute nightmare. Here are references to very-compatible options[^]
I just realized - with the amazing powers and abilities of their ubiquitous search engine and all the plugins so eagerly snatched up by web-(designers/developers) that Google will be able to make it turn up on webish things that 'ogle' is the new 'd'.
I certainly understand where you're coming from - and the parentage clearly point in that way. However, at present, Bing hardly makes its way to the second circle of hell. Essentially, it is because no one would notice much or for long if it just went away.
