  • They're an http download website that takes a 30% cut on the hard work of artists.

    That is already reprehensible, but not illegal.

    They also dominate their market and their competition is laughable.

    Now that is a properly punishable crime.

  • This text is a poem in Sindarin, one of the languages created by J.R.R. Tolkien for his Middle-earth legendarium. It is a hymn to Varda (Elbereth), a revered figure among the Elves. Here's a translation and analysis:


    A Elbereth Gilthoniel, (Oh Elbereth Star-kindler,)

    silivren penna míriel (white-glittering, slanting down sparkling like jewels)

    o menel aglar elenath! (from heaven the glory of the star-host!)

    Na-chaered palan-díriel (To-remote distance far-having gazed)

    o galadhremmin ennorath, (from tree-woven Middle-earth,)

    Fanuilos, le linnathon (Fanuilos [Ever-white], to thee I will chant)

    nef aear, sí nef aearon! (on this side of the ocean, here on this side of the Great Ocean!)


    Elbereth Gilthoniel: Elbereth is another name for Varda, the Queen of the Stars, one of the Valar. Gilthoniel means "Star-kindler."
    silivren penna míriel: Describes the shining and glittering quality of the stars.
    o menel aglar elenath: Refers to the glory of the star-host (elenath) in the heavens (menel).
    Na-chaered palan-díriel: Indicates gazing into the remote distance.
    o galadhremmin ennorath: Mentions Middle-earth (Ennorath) being tree-woven.
    Fanuilos, le linnathon: Pledges to sing to Fanuilos (another name for Elbereth) forever.
    nef aear, sí nef aearon: A vow made on this side of the ocean (referring to the Great Ocean that separates Middle-earth from the Undying Lands).

    The poem reflects the deep reverence and love the Elves have for Elbereth, highlighting her connection to the stars and the distant heavens.

  • I mean I just watched this explanation of the "sneed seed and feed" dogwhistle and It doesn't seem to signal more than vague group membership appartenance. I think the thing with dogwhistle is they expire as they diffuse. Like teens drawing swastikas and penises just because it's offensive. This "41" is from more than a century ago. I think with these heirloom dogwhisles, you at least should check how much they really mean it are if they're just shitposters. You don't want the whiteknight stonethrowers to get bogged down by collateral damage, playing into their game and catching all the flak from "them"

  • Anyone else getting youtube tabs loading forever ?


    BTW this is on gigabit internet

    It is quite annoyting, it prevents some other addons like close duplicates from running at all, as it does not run as long as there is something loading

    Fortunately, "Stop all" does work to shut them off

    This is a new behaviour from today, possibly ?

    I just gave it a try, openned 3 tabs and waited 60 seconds, they didn't finish loading.

    I tried turning off ublock, no effect

    NOTE :

    Issue has resolved itself after a reboot. This is a system with a amd 5950x and 64gb ram.

  • Is every word and number going to get colonised as dogwhistle until all of language has become a minefield ? Why do we even give air to this shit ? It seems to me acknowledging it is to give it power and legitimacy.

  • At this point steam is plain rent, coasting on their monopolistic platform power not any particular technical merit. It would be fine if valve spent this money on their userbase, but they don't. All their other products are run for profit as well.

  • Yes in a marginalist framework (the supply and demand people) the solution is to increase the housing supply to a permanent slight excess. Preferably in a way that is least damaging to the economy.

    However the old commie block approach created a consecrated symbol for the forces of capital to attack, and ultimately dynamite.

    The problem is the rentier class has the most resources to throw against this and they still can find other ways to rescarcify housing unless forced building programs are big enough to over power them.

  • I mean this is exactly the kind of regulation that microsoft/openai is begging for to cement their position. Then is going to be just a matter of digesting their surviving competitors until only one competitor remains, similar to Intel / AMD relationship. Then they can have a 20 year period of stagnation while they progressively screw over customers and suppliers.

    I think that's the bad ending. By desperately trying to keep the old model of intellectual property going, they're going to make the real AI nightmare of an elite few in control of the technology with an unconstrained ability to leverage the benefits and further solidifying their lead over everyone else.

    The collective knowledge of humanity is not their exclusive property. It also isn't the property of whoever is the lastest person to lay a claim to an idea in effective perpetuity.

  • How can I quickly "unclog" firefox when it runs out of memory (with 1000/2000 tabs)

    Hi, Once in a while I try to clean up my tabs. First thing I do is use "merge all windows" to put all tabs into one window.

    This often causes a memory clog and firefox get stuck in this state for 10-20 minutes

    I have recorded one such instance.

    I have tried using the "discard all tabs" addon, unfortunately, it is also getting frozen by the memory clog.

    Sometimes I will just reboot my PC as that is faster.

    Unfortunately, killing firefox this way, does not save the new tab order, so when I start firefox again, it will have 20+ windows open, which I again, merge all pages and then it clogs again !

    So far the only solution I have found is just wait the 20 minutes.

    Once the "memory clog" is passed, it runs just fine.

    I would like better control over tab discard. and maybe some way of limitting bloat. For instance, I would rather keep a lower number of undiscarded youtube that as they seem to be insanely bloated.

    In other cases, for most website I would like to never discard the contents.

    In my ideal world, I would like the tabs to get frozen and saved to disk permanently, rather than assuming discard tabs can be reloaded. As if the websites were going to exist forever and discarding a tab is like cleaning a cache.

    The steam store "all item" list clears itself when you scroll back up. How to prevent that ?

    It is extremely frustrating. I just wanted to evaluate the whole list one by one and not miss one.

    But no, it makes you click "more" every 10 items and then it wipes itself when you scroll back up.

    You win steam, I give up and won't buy anything, happy ?


    When I visit websites like netflix and discord, all my side monitors go extra glitched, I think it's an HDR thing. How can I stop that ?

    After some searching, it looks like I need to disable all hardware acceleration ? How can I disable only the minimum amount of stuff ?


    Is there an addon to allow rightclick-rename from the downloads manager ?

    I mean this context menu



    Are there addons to freeze javascript (toolbar button) and "discard tab to disk" (instead of plain discard)

    I don't like it when I go back to a tab and it reloads.

    For whatever reason, I want tabs to stop changing. I don't want the to reload from their javascript and I don't want the tab content to be deleted by the automatic discard (to save memory)

    If firefox decides to free memory, it should dump tab data and tab state to disk, not delete and reload from the website later.

    Sometimes the website won't exist later.

    Somewhat related but this one is hard : Some website dynamically delete content after you've scroll past it (firefox) this means even if you scroll to the "true" bottom, you can't ctrl+f search and you can't freeze the page and read it all at your leisure and preserve it for later.

    Currently my solution is to video screen capture the whole tab while scrolling slowly, this is quite a ridiculous step to take but apparently the only option to keep our data !?


    how do you search lemmy comments ?

    I just tried the search button, got no result. Turns out the search button only searches community names not comments or posts ?!?!??

    Youtube interdimensionalmeme

    Why does it take so many steps to tell Youtube "I've already watched this" ?

    I have soooo many videos that I've already watched.

    5 clicks in a context menu is wayyyyyy to much

    It should be one click.

    And "I've already watched this"

    Doesn't meant I don't want to see that youtuber any less of course.

    It's that specific video, because I'VE ALREADY WATCHED IT !


    Can I control my firefox browser externally (from CLI or make an app) ?

    I would like to be able to perform the following actions from outside the browser, for example from a script

    ''' Obtain a list of all tabs, and which URL is open Obtain a list of all firefox windows and which tab is in each and in what order Obtain a list of firefox running instances Actions on tabs Close a tab Open a new tab and enter URL move a tab in a window's tab order move a tab to another window mute/unmute a tab make a tab hidden or unhide pin/unpin a tab select/unselect a tab discard a tab reload a tab copy tab body or a specific xpath run a javascript cmdlet, (bookmarklet ? ) Run a function of a script in somethingmonkey bookmarks list all bookmarks folder and bookmarks move a bookmark to another folder delete a bookmark create a bookmark get/change position of a firefox window close a window/ open a new window list installed addons turn an addon on or off '''

    I would love to be able to write script, from outside firefox, and do these actions

    I have found about the remote debugger, but I can't figure out if it's only for debugging firefox on android via adb ? Or can I use that directly from a script ?

    devtools.debugger.remote-enabled -start-debugger-server ?

    Is any of this possible ?

    thanks !


    Is there an addon to move selected tabs to a bookmark folder

    And I really mean move, not copy.

    The difference between copy and move is that copy... copies, but move dies copy->verify->delete original, in a single operation of the user.

    Preferably, that is reliable. Meaning it checks the bookmarks have been successfully created before closing the related tab.

    Also it should be clear what bookmark folder it is going to put the tabs in.

    Because the current bookmark manager, it is easy to end up dumping all your tabs in the parent folder of tge destination you indented.

    Or end up creating an extra child folder inside your intended destination bookmark folder

    Would also be nice to have quality of life features, such as a default bookmark folder.

    The option to put the bookmarks in a folder named with today's date.

    Maybe an option to specify a default destination bookmarks folder on a per site domain basis


    are there dedicated thin client linux distro, I mean moonlight, SPICE, waypipe, vnc, rdp, remmina, X.

    Either pxe netboot or usb or installable. Immuttable or not. Ramfs. With a host selector or fully auto login ?

    Ultra light 16 to 128mb storage 64-128mb ram. Or "full sized"

    And lastly, something like that, but that would run on a proxmox host.


    Is it possible for an addon to tell if a tab was closed, or pulled out ? (github issue, feature request) Feature Request : Distinct behaviour between tab close and tab pullout · Issue #37 · jingyu9575/select-after-closing-current

    Feature Request : Distinct behaviour between tab close and tab pullout · Issue #37 · jingyu9575/select-after-closing-current

    The select-after-closing-current addon is a way to pullout a random tab out of a window, which will not change the tab that was visible in that window.

    However, what it does is any closed tab, it will select the previously seen tab no matter what.

    The reason for my question, I would like to know if it is possible for the add-on to have a different behaviour for closed tabs from pulled out tabs.

    I wish, when I close a tab, to always select the tab to the right. But when I pullout a tab, I wish to always see the tab that was visible before the pullout.


    I just spent my entire weekend doing my Sketchup 8 keybinds. I just had to share.

    And I'm curious if I could map my keys to make Freecad work this way. I don't know how many of the these tools don't exist in Freecad, but if I could one to one make a keybind that works for me, I might start using it instead of sketchup 8


    But mostly, this is the because general CAD community on lemmy and I wanted to share, ciao!


    Which addon, will open multiple tabs, from the multiple URLs in my clipboard ?

    There used to be an addon, "Open tabs from clipboard URLs" but I can't seem to find it anymore.

    The best I find now is, an addon that opens a box, then you paste your URLs in it, then you press a button.

    That's not what I want. I want a toolbar button, I press it, the tabs open.

    So that I can opens large blocks of URLs.

    Also, I would like another addon which opens large blocks of URLs but does not load them immediately.

    I have LoadOnSelect3 for this, but the problem with that one, is that it opens special moz:// pages until you load the tab. And that breaks searching and filtering tabs because the tab title and URL are not the real ones.

    The ability to re-bind any keyboard or mouse shortcuts is major accessibility issue that I think needs more attention Customizable hotkeys

    It would be great if there was a way to customize hotkeys. Here's how I see it:  * Have a about:hotkeys panel, with all actions listed, and already mapped shortcuts shown.  * Whether these should be modifiable or not is up to the dev community, ideally they'd be.  * When clicking on a hotkey field, ...

    You should try Tab Manager Plus, it's the best Tab Manager IF you change the default settings ! (video demonstration)

    Tab Manager Plus Set to "Open in own tab by default" Set to "Dark mode" Set to "Vertical view" -- very important

    You can live search your tab titles to select them

    You can open all selected tabs in their own window

    You can close selected tabs

    You can "discard" tab contents (different from close, the tab is there but content is gone)

    You can highlight/select duplicate tabs

    You can hide not selected tabs

    You can pin selected tabs (unfortunately, they still only appear on the one window they are pinned to, they just get pinned to the left of the tab bar)

    You can drag and drop selected tabs to another window of your choice, both the representation of that window in the TMP tab, but also into the other firefox window itself. That means, drag and drop from here, is the same as pulling out a tab out of a normal firefox window !

    Cannot search text inside of tabs, especially not sleeping tabs

    Sometimes I press the TMP button and I just get a bluegreen screen, doesn't work until I close many windows and tabs

    I would prefer real dark mode with my preferred colours

    I would like to easily drop&close tabs into bookmark folders reliably !
