@evilham Yeah, Mozilla devs don't care if it breaks, but are likely to accept community fixes for that.
We toggled the about:config setting mentioned above. Nothing.
Also tried resetting Ff.
Very poor, but the worst part is WorkOffline has completely disappeared from the 'More >' section of the Hamburber menu.
Glad that Ff is not our default browser anymore.
@dsfgs The about:config option does not enable compact mode yet, it only makes it selectable in the "Customize Toolbar" settings. These are – at least for me – hidden behind the ">>" symbol in the main toolbar. On that customisation page, you can select the compact density.
These settings being rather hidden might explain why most people used to not know about that mode's existence.
@dsfgs The "Customize Toolabr" page can also be found in the aforementioned "More >" section of the hamburger menu.
That is some obnoxious hiding.
Will look into this.
The fact that 'Offline Mode' is missing though, that's the real concern for us moving forward. On #batteryLife and other things. Especially if forks lose it too.
Typical #Mozilla myopia.
(Maybe Mozilla should change its name to #Myopia, but alas it would be an offense to people with short vision)
We think #CompactMode ought be the default – not deprecated.
It's all a bit of a #redHerring, though.
@dsfgs I have to admit I never used that mode because it'd be rather unpractical to me.
But it's still there: Press "Alt" to show the main menu bar, then "File -> Work Offline"
We went on another expedition 20 minutes ago and saw it, in the hidden menu, we were going to write about this success and you've saved us the time.
It is a relief that we don't need to lobby.
Otherwise: `sudo ifconfig $INTERFACE down`. I've configured sudo such that I don't need to enter the password for "down", but for "up". Kind of self-conditioning to work offline more often ...
@schmittlauch Das Layout sieht halt vorher wie nachher viel zu gedrängt aus, visuell imho inakzeptabel. Die hohen Tabs sind aber ebenfalls grässlich.
@frumble Alles Geschmackssache, ich verstehe nicht warum es ne Bannmeile um jedes Label braucht. Allerdings sitze ich ja auch nur mit einem "winzigen Laptopbildschirm" im Zug statt wie du offenbar überall 30" 4K Displays mitzuschleppen ;)
