I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

So it looks like Firefox is disabling addons. Mine went away and from what I can find I'm not the only one.

You win, Avast. I'll try your stupid browser.

But before trying that, I tried downloading Firefox Developer Edition. With that one you can go to about:config and set xpinstall.signatures.required to false. I tried that, and it allowed me to download add-ons again. It's warning me that the add-ons can't be verified for use, but it's allowing me to ignore the warning if I so choose. Imagine that, software allowing the user to take control when the user knows the software is making a mistake. So I guess I'm never going back to standard Firefox.

You probably shouldn't have done anything drastic without a cursory glance at Firefox's Twitter. This glitch might even be related to them finally killing random autoplay videos.

 

Which is actually a thing Firefox could already do with a bit of modding, so you have to give them props for screwing up this hard.

I don't seem to be having any issues with Firefox addons (except for the fact that opening the options menu went to a tab which caused issues- but that's partly my fault for messing around with how tabs work in Firefox and partly Mozilla's fault for being blitheringly stupid enough to not include a "disable tabs" option in Firefox by default.)

Kay it finally happened to me.

 

It's also allowed Autoplay videos back in and the feature they claim will disable them is actually just disabling autoplay sound.

Kay I'm officially not going on any sites with significant ad presence till this is fixed.

Half? That's amazingly generous.

 

And Firefox has just disabled my addons. Apparently it's to do with some kind of security certificate thing? I hope it gets sorted out soon.

ATTENTION!

 

The fix they're rolling out is a study. Go to Firefox's privacy settings and make sure "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" is checked or you will not get the fix.

 

I checked it on my laptop and add-ons were working again in about five minutes.

The shame is that this bug was listed as a problem in their tracker THREE YEARS AGO and they didn't do anything about it until suddenly one day the totally known beforehand bug reared it's head and left tons of people potentially vulnerable to malicious popups and the like while they scrambled to put out an update that only rolled out in a form that required you to opt into their data gathering program at least temporarily.

 

It's a real big shame indeed.
