My girdlfriends place has been infested with bed bugs. Which fucking sucks. I've been staying here and trying to fix it as much as possible. And, three/4 residents have moved out or are staying most nights away to cope. And have done fuck all to fix the problem.

Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.

⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️

It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here nixnet.xyz/ by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553
