Lifesaving tip of the day; open full permissions for USB storage devices so you don't need to sudo to write images to microSD cards when playing with your Pi, for instance. This way you do not have to worry about wiping your internal drives. Before I did this myself I always double and triple checked before doing any writing to (micro)SD cards.

On my Ubuntu desktop i've put the following line in /etc/udev/rules.d/99-usb-storage.rules:
KERNEL=="sd*", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", MODE="0666"

So many people saying they're switching from Firefox. Won't this only make the problem worse?

If you're switching to Brave or qutebrowser or UnGoogled Chromium or something, you're only strengthening Google's monopoly. If you're switching to a Webkit-based browser like Epiphany, you're shifting the monopoly towards Safari, whose parent company doesn't consider the Web a priority.

That Mozilla has bad management doesn't change the fact that Firefox is the most viable option for the open web.
