But there are plenty of smaller plugins that are not already there like the download manager DownThemAll and tons of little user interface customization stuff and cookie managing stuff.
DownThemAll! is not going to port to the new Firefox add-on framework because he doesn't think it's possible with the new locked-down API. However, he did decide to do a DTA Lite.

There's only one plugin I'll miss, which is the one I used to pull videos off of Nico Douga for stuff like the Japanese pony episodes, but I can work around that. However, I also don't have any particular urge or need to use Firefox for anything except sites that need a heavy dose of NoScript. I really don't think they thought their schedule through for a move this huge.

I did a full test. Is SMART not good enough to find problems like that?
He's talking about this part of the SMART tools output:

...or current pending sectors, or any of those lines below the red arrow (which may vary by drive model). The SMART test might pass if the error was corrected, but if it had to do so, that's worrisome.

Try

Code: Select all

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda
(or whatever device name you're looking at) to see the current details on the drive.

Re: Technical Computer Stuff

I got the feature update last night as well and haven't seen that, but... maybe the sound driver got borked? I know mine was really screwed up when I first updated to Win10.
