Firefox/Thunderbird crashing (weird pthread error in libxul…). No time for debug builds to figure it out, so switching to chromium atm…

And ugh! Evolution is better looking and supports my two-factor authentication (no more app passwords). I wasn’t really attached to Thunderbird though–just wanted to avoid as many Gnome dependencies as I could.

But, Chromium is so much snappier! This is what I didn’t want to find out… I used Firefox mainly for idealistic reasons (non-profit Mozilla who fights for open web and against DRM and open codecs, etc versus Google, who “does no evil” but is just so Google focused)… but they also have Zotero which I used extensively…

We’ll see if I get the time to build a debug version of Firefox to trace the segfault down, but will be interesting to see if I stick with Chromium even after that…

…here’s hoping for Servo sometime soon?

First Chromium annoyance though: “file://” urls are automatically blocked in XMLHttpRequests, which breaks my citeproc-js script when viewing slides locally! UGH!
