It's taken me a while, but I finally tried opening 2 Settings sessions at once: Update was running already, and I tried opening Display Settings too. All that did was switch the one Settings window to Display Settings, with no back arrow in the top-left corner.
Looks like Settings is truly a UWP-style app, and it can only handle one instance. If so, for PCs it's a definite step backwards from Control Panel.
I wonder how long it'll take MSFT to permit multiple simultaneous instances of Settings sections.
The article https://www.thurrott.com/cloud/118291/mozilla-delivers-best-firefox-ever shows 50 comments, but only 6 premium and 16 standard comments appearing. A couple of my own comments aren't appearing though they show up in the Activity tab in https://www.thurrott.com/users/hrlngrv/#1.
Firefox 49.0.2 under Linux and 47.0.1 under Windows
I use a nondefault setting in Firefox about:config, media.autoplay.enabled set to FALSE. This is to prevent embedded audio-video ads automatically playing in articles on some sites (IDG ones expecially).
With this setting, Firefox won't play the First Ring Daily podcasts. The Vimeo screenlet does appear and its controls appear on mouse hover. However, when I click on the play button, the controls remain but the rest of the screenlet goes all white and the podcast doesn't play.
OTOH, on other sites when I click on play buttons in embedded ads, those ads play. Same for what would usually be autoplaying audio-visual content in sites like ESPN and CNN. Here on thurrott.com, Windows Weekly and What the Tech videos require me to click play, pause, play for the videos to play, but they do play. I'm only having problems with this with Vimeo podcasts.
Just came across
When will it finally be time for MSFT to rehire some professional QA testers?
Editing comments works sorta. It doesn't work with newlines, e.g.,
soft newline to here
hard newline to here
like those. Newlines/paragraphs can be added to new posts/comments/replies, but the Edit feature seems to ignore both soft [Shift]+[Enter] and hard [Enter] newlines. PITA. Makes it necessary to copy previous comments/replies, delete, and create new comments/replies.
When a new section of the site is selected, there's a blue line underlining that section in the toolbar/section list. Forum appears to be an exception. When it's selected, both it and Home are underlined.
The sort by Date option doesn't seem to do anything. Following threads of responses is a practical impossibility.
