There was apparently a way to stop some of this behavior in the past using Firefox for iOS's "debug" menu (utterly ridiculous), but the option to choose isn't even there anymore.
Though, Chrome for iOS doesn't have these problems (I still use it for things that use my Google account).
Bye bye Firefox -- it's been a good run.
Well, that's it. I'm just about to stop using Firefox for iOS and start using Safari.
Firefox, for the past month, has been a) opening a new blank tab every time I switch to the app, and b) occasionally opening _every_ link in a new tab... in the background. I will click the same link 10 times, wondering why nothing is happening, and then get the tab row to appear (which isn't always visible in iOS), and notice I have 10 tabs open for the same thing.
There's a whole universe of people - like your boss, or a creepy co-worker - who seem to sincerely think they're your pal, even though you *loathe* them. When those people friend you, you have to friend them back.
This dynamic is so common that I wrote an article about in 2007, entitled, "How Your Creepy Ex-Co-Workers Will Kill Facebook."
Last quarter, Facebook lost US daily users for the first time. Investors pounded the company, wiping more than $230m off its market cap, the largest single drop in value ever experienced by any company, ever.
Those investors understood that when the toxic creeps push the most delicate normies off of Facebook, that leaves the rest of the nontoxic users mired in forums where the creep:normie ratio is worse.
After most of my closest family missing out of covid the whole time, I've had just about my entire family get sick with it in the past two weeks; it's incredible how fast it happened.
Among about 12 people, I can definitely say that those with the boosters weathered it like "a mild cold" from several accounts -- if they haven't had a booster, it's like getting a bad bout of influenza. Ouch.
That'll learn me to upgrade an entire OS version in the first few weeks it comes out:
