What's the biggest downside of using Firefox 56? I assume security issues.

>>62160417
HTTPS Everywhere is ready to go (you just have to get it from the EFF website). Self Destructing Cookies is replaced by Cookie Autodelete. Ublock Origin is ready to go, too. Don't know about the other things on your list, as I don't use them.
>>
uBlock will be updated

HTTPS Everywhere will be updated

Replace Self-Destructing Cookies with CookieAutodelete

Replace Flagfox with "Country Flags and IP Whois" (or something similar, there are other webextensions that do the same thing)

Searching on the Mozilla site I find tons of Soundcloud webextensions, like this one:
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/scdl-soundcloud-downloader/?src=ss

Don't know about Mega. But using a dedicated download manager like JDownloader would probably be better anyways.
>>
>>62160491
the official MEGA addon is quite good, especially if you use their (((cloud))) service, not just download. They will update it sooner or later.

With webext the scripts call functions in the browser rather than loading a binary that can do anything.
This should give Firefox the ability to make it more secure so they can limit what you share and how.
It is a good idea, the only annoying thing is it has been pushed rather suddenly and not all developers have time to rewrite their addon.

It still can't beat this technique:

Reddit is a shit hivemind of bland positivity and immature humor, but it's also one of the largest sites with countless subcultures. At this point, it has useful resources, and subreddits that aren't total shit.

To avoid Reddit is to avoid potentially valuable content and/or resources. Similar to how YouTube is overall shit, but unavoidably useful.

I wonder what algorithm is behind it. https everywhere is a bunch of shite that keeps an sqlite db full of regexes to match and transform domains, because apparently just changing http to https doesn't work for some sites (how shit can a site be, honestly?). I hope they have something that doesn't rely on databases and shit, just on-the-fly attempts with maybe cached results.
>>
>>62167058
this doesnt do anything

firefox doesnt have a way to use VAAPI/VDPAU or similar.

on the other hand mpv does, therefore if you have a decoder implemented in hardware you can offload it to the hardware decoder

disabling the thing you underlined for me seems to just put extra laod on cpu when drawing webpages thats all (in my experience)
>>

i want to correct myself:

i meant it puts extra load when rendering a webpage.

You can use your microwave to boil water, but a kettle will be a lot more efficient.

Same with browsers and video players. Sure, you can watch your videos in the browser. But you might step up your game and use software that was actually designed from the ground up to deal with videos.
