A bunch of shit in Firefox has been breaking for me lately.
Vimperator has entirely stopped working on my laptop. Not even
The NoScript buttons in the tab bar randomly disappear and I have to restart.
Firefox randomly can't open web pages unless I try again. I thought it might have been a router problem or something but no other piece of software on my PC has this problem.
FFS I don't upgrade software so I can avoid garbage like this, but apparently not even that helps.
Actually I did upgrade this server to 6.2 today. I noticed it had 186 days of uptime before I took it down, so it's been alive since I did the update to 6.1. None of the long-running software I use has crashed a single time during that period. Upgrading probably took less than five minutes and everything came up and worked first time. Why can't all software be OpenBSD?
Couple of updates a few days later: my RSS cronjob is hanging for some unknown reason and I needed to reinstall rspamd (I think I built it myself before). Also the Firefox failures have spread to my desktop.
