Randomly seeing this classic easter egg on my put a big smile on my face this week 😁 Happy holidays to everyone! πŸŽ… 🎁 β˜ƒοΈ

7/ Download in progress!

Link to repo w/ updated README:

Have fun with the new config, report issues or even better, send patches if you find bugs. Like previous versions, I've only tested this on the PinePhone (took long enough, but in the future I might test it on other devices too) and some of the hardcoded px values may not work well with other phones. But we can add media queries for those, just give editing the CSS a try.

6/ "Find in page..." in the menu opens this toolbar. That's right, you have all controls from Firefox desktop available. With this and the keyboard open, almost the whole page is covered. However when typing the query and then minimizing the keyboard, one can go through the results nicely.

4/ With searchbar results solved, navbar at bottom suddenly seemed feasible. At that point, I just had to give @linmob 's clever idea a try. He made the tab title bigger so it always shows the tab menu button and makes the tab selection menu usable on mobile.

Free space above the menu button is for consistency with private mode, so both can use the same tab size. Also it's convenient to tap there to close the menu.

3/ Searching through bookmarks is of course more fun if you can actually give them a proper title. That works now!

2/ Navbar is now easy to reach while typing. There was a poll about this: fosstodon.org/@ollieparanoid/1

It was challenging to get other UI elements to play along, e.g. searchbar results would be cut off below the searchbar. After lots of trail and error, I went with moving it up to cover the displayed website. It's even possible to scroll the list with your finger. At least for me it feels very convenient now, to use this to search through history and bookmarks.

1/ Part of the upcoming v21.12 release of @postmarketOS will be a modern mobile-config-firefox. I've just tagged 3.0.0_rc1 and made it available in postmarketOS edge for wider testing.

This is the biggest release so far, highlights:
* FF >= 91 compatibility
* navigation bar moved to bottom (thanks to plata-gl)
* reader view made adaptive (thanks to @blendergeek)
* much less UI glitches, no more tiny font hacks
* u-block origin installed by default

Thanks to @agx and @tbernard for helping me get seek buttons into ! πŸŽ‰

Here's how it looks like from the lockscreen, see Guido's post for how it looks like in unlocked state: social.librem.one/@agx/1071118

Coming soon to a disto near you. And yes, all distros with Phosh, that's the great thing about upstreaming a feature! πŸ˜„

I found the interview with @mobian founder @awai in the first episode of @nick's podcast quite interesting and suggest people who are into podcasts about give it a listen. Looking forward to more episodes!

That's the corel linux which they mentioned btw, I was curious. I like how it speaks in the past sense of the operating system in the wikipedia page in the screenshot. πŸ˜›


Need a place to dump a video of a feature I'm currently working on, so I'll do as everybody else and put it here πŸ˜€

You're watching my second attempt to add seek buttons to the media player widget in . Especially at the lockscreen, this is a must-have feature for me when listening to podcasts.


Running "real " on phones means you can use same methods to debug/develop as on a desktop. I fired up cProfiler to investigate why starts up slowly on my .

Ended up submitting four patches, one of them makes cover and the "pill" of new/downloaded podcasts look sharp on high res displays (see screenshot, didn't realize how blurry it was until investigating this πŸ˜€) and a one liner that fixes loading cached thumbnails. Got a ~20s faster startup!
