@tom79 just got an error message in mastalab because I restarted Orbot while getting newest toots. Noticed that it got changed to one of those "Oops, an error has occurred" style messages, is there an option to get proper errors back?
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
Please don't demand content warnings from strangers. Content warnings are a sort of social contract between an author and their followers; if you are not happy with how someone chooses to use them, do not follow that person or outright mute them, or mute words.
One of the most alienating experiences on Mastodon I've observed is when someone posts about something they're passionate about or is part of their identity and the first response is "please cw that" from a complete stranger.
Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset .
People with a 'fixed mindset' believe that abilities are mostly innate and interpret failure as the lack of necessary basic abilities, people with a 'growth mindset' believe that they can acquire any given ability provided they invest effort or study.
Our abilities are shaped both by our decisions and by our genetics/environment, but people who believe they have more control end up sticking with their goals for longer and are less likely to give up.
@cwebber Funny thing is I find most Americans and Brits are so concerned with not hurting feelings that their criticisms are sugar coated to the point of being effectively useless even honest.
If I were to follow the golden rule I'd be harsh, to the point most people would see it as almost mean. Because thats how I want people to be with me, brutally honest.
The golden rule only tends to work when everyone has the same sensitivities as you.
The point wasn't that Chrome sucks, or that having many tabs open sucks.
The point is that the web browser sucks. The web, HTML, the DOM, and an immense hodge-podge of largely unused code cobbled up together code sucks when you need to work on non-trivial tasks.
It's fine for reading toots and email. *Maybe*
But for reading non-trivial text, and doing anything that isn't consumerist internet applications... all other knowledge work suffers.
