I'm using Waterfox 220.127.116.11 for Linux.
The 3 buttons to the right of Recent Stories near the top of the front page of the site no longer change the layout persistently. If I select one of the non-default layouts, the layout changes. Then if I close my browser and relaunch it, the default layout appears again.
This isn't a problem with Opera, Chrome or Firefox, only Waterfox. Since this appears to be specific to Waterfox, a fix may be needed in Waterfox. I'm asking where I should start looking to find the setting in order to report it to Waterfox.
Some discussion of Chrome OS updates.
I own a Chromebook which is now 6+ years old. Last summer, when it hit 5 years, it displayed a notification on the last 2 updates I received saying my Chromebook had reached end of support. I don't recall whether it said I should buy a new one, but it definitely hasn't received an update since then.
FWIW, it doesn't have all the latest features, but it still works well enough for how I use it. That said, I won't be replacing it with another Chromebook. Mine is so old it predated the now standard keyboard layout, and I can't stand that keyboard layout.
For me since Build 17666 I've had to use Powershell commands to be able to launch the MSFT Store app. Many threads in Feedback about this, and I've upvoted a few.
Perhaps not surprising, Office Insider builds aren't MSFT Store desktop apps.
I had the MSFT Store version of Office 365 installed in the VM in which I run Windows 10 Insider builds. Then I opted to receive Office Insider builds. That automatically converted Office to installed the old-fashioned, non-Store way. Interesting that given the frequency with which Office would be updated, MSFT doesn't use their Store to do so. Then again, maybe there's enough Windows 7 and 8.x Office Insiders that that would be impractical.
For me it’s a joystick pointer. I’m just not used to trackpads, and I don’t like them anyway. I also couldn’t get used to trackball mice placed on the side of a laptop.
Second is inverted T cursor keys, meaning Up/Down keys the same size as Left/Right keys, so no HP or MSFT laptops for me.
I’d love more 3:2 or squarer display options, but I’m not holding my breath.
I've seen reviews for voice translation apps for Android. I've found less information on translation apps for written stuff. Presumably one takes a picture of some writing, and through the magic of OCR and online apps, it's translated into English (or whatever).
What do others here use on Android for translating writing?
Either the beginning of the beginning or the beginning of the end. MSM writing about Chromebooks.
Y'all seem to have a broken link to a site graphical image. Not a big problem, but a slowly growing irritant.
And it seems to break Classic Shell. Not completely, but enough to make it almost unusable.
Because someone had to.
Opera shows this site as trying to use insecure content. FWIW, Firefox and Chrome don't. What might that be?
I know the premium articles I read yesterday, and today they open without the picture at the top nor all but the last 1-3 paragraphs. I'm logged in with my premium account. I even logged out and logged back in. I also tried some premium articles from last week. They're also truncated. FWIW, nonpremium articles seem unaffected.
If this is a true site-wide issue, it'd be nice to see a nonpremium article acknowledging the problem and better with an ETA for a fix.

I'm asking out of curiosity.
In my own case, I pay for Office 365 annually, and in the last 5 years I've paid for a new version upgrade to Beyond Compare (which I use on both Windows and Linux), contributions to Ubuntu, Linux Mint, FSF, the GNU Octave program (and I get the UW-Madison Engineering Dept magazines to prove it), and The Document Foundation (LibreOffice). Out of laziness I've also bought internal password removers for PDFs and VBA projects in Office documents so I don't have to keep using a hex editor and multiple file open-close operations. I also pay contributions for the odd browser add-in. I average about US$300 annually.
In case anyone's interested.
Just asking since there's no Forum post asking for questions.
This Friday may be easier than next Friday since next Friday begins Easter weekend.
Hmm, no article today (6 Mar 2018) on the newest build.
I realize this isn't the ideal place for politics, but this does seem quite relevant for MSFT.
FWIW, and this may be more appropriate on reddit than here, I've come across one deficiency of the Store version of desktop Office.
Using File Explorer, select a text file (.TXT extension). Usually it's associated with Notepad. If you've installed a more powerful text editor, like Notepad++, .TXT files would be associated with that. However, if you wanted to open the .TXT file in Word, it's not so easy.
Store desktop Word doesn't appear in the default Open With submenu of the pop-up/right-click menu. Nor can a usable Word .EXE be found using Look for another app on this PC.
