Privacy, like security, requires technology that can be examined, reviewed, studied, vetted and modified. It's also a personal consideration

We need a full free and open technology stack: software, devices, data and society

is everything you think necessary for your personal freedom, privacy and security ( even things we have not yet created )

The error given:

"Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

68 doesn't seem all that much older than 71, maybe it's ESR from non-ESR

I have some specific, lovingly hand-crafted, artisan profiles

One does not simply recreate a masterpiece :)

Switching from Ubuntu bionic to debian buster and Firefox is unhappy :(

It complains about an old version.

debian: ii firefox-esr 68.3.0esr-1~deb10u1

Ubuntu: ii firefox 71.0+build5- amd64

Adjusting LastVersion in $profileDir/compatibility.ini gets it to start, now testing functionality

The reason:


profile-per-install seems like a cool feature

it also seems like a feature I want to disable unless is allows ranges

Regular PSA on IT/Eng/Ops burnout (long) 

I've just released a simple #ActivityPub debugging tool. It's hosted on Glitch so you don't have to worry about spinning up servers or SSL certs etc. You clone your own copy of the project, set it up, and you can create ActivityPub accounts that can send any raw JSON payload you specify to its followers. I use it for testing new and novel ActivityPub objects, and to test compatibility with messages sent from remote servers without needing to create an account on them.

Are you worried about your #privacy after #Google acquired #Fitbit? If you are looking for a privacy respecting alternative I can only recommend to have a look at #Gadgetbridge and chose one of the supported devices as your next wearable.
