Privacy@Lemmy.world: How can I make email sub-addresses with only letters or numbers and no special characters like plus?

I want a bulletproof way to give email sub-addresses, since some websites strip out special characters like + and .. I have an idea for how it could work, let's say my email is TheTwelveYearOld@Reddit.com and I have the following:

  • All emails sent to TheTwelveYearOld@ get blocked
  • I specify a suffix that would be used instead of +, perhaps "From"
  • I whitelist phrases that go after "From": TheTwelveYearOldFromDoorDash, TheTwelveYearOldFromGoogle, TheTwelveYearOldFromReddit

Are there any services that can do this? I'm thinking I should make my own domain for emails that way my email addresses aren't tied to any companies and I can easily switch.

Firefox@Lemmy.ml: What is the best way to keep a list of many tabs to read later between desktop and mobile without having all of them open on mobile?

TLDR: I want to easily have a bunch of tabs somehow synchronized on both my desktop and mobile devices and in different groups. Safari and other iOS browsers haven't worked well for me.

This has actually been a hard problem I've been trying to solve for over 2 years now. Despite having used Firefox as my main browser the whole time, I had relied on Safari to sync tabs between my MBP and iOS devices since the UX for opening desktop tabs in the Firefox mobile app is really clunky: you have to do lots of taps and to get a list of tabs and you can only open one at a time, to open just one tab you have to do the whole dance all over again (this was from last time I tried it months ago, is it any different now?).

The problem with Safari is that lose a whole bunch of tabs can suddenly disappear open on all devices, replacing the pages with blank tabs, you can image how pissed off I was at that. I tried a bunch of iOS browsers, but none of them came close to having a UI as good as Safari in my opinion, and honestly iOS Safari feels much nicer than Firefox. Later I found Orion, but if I have many tabs open, the browser lags really hard on my M1 iPad Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, when all of them except for the current tab are unloaded. I don't get why mobile browsers are generally unpolished compared to desktop ones.

I was opposed to read it later apps like Pocket and Omnivore, because I can't open a bunch of pages quickly and switch between them, like I can with browser tabs, but I think I have to suck it up. I could use the Omnivore iOS app and have a tab open on Firefox desktop, to save page and open them in the browser by default, and it has labels which I can filter pages by, since I like to have pages or tabs in groups like Safari Tab groups.

Having long lists of pages wouldn't lag, or suddenly disappear, and I can mark the pages as read when I'm done with them. I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on this or have other ideas that might work better.

Firefox@lemmy.ml: The only Reddit Redirector addon that exclude non-redirectable pages is, UI Changer for Reddit.

I know this is Lemmy and plenty of users here are anti-Reddit, but I'm sharing this in case other users have trouble with this as well.

Edit: u/Capta1nT0ad commented a working regex rule, Idk why my attempts didn't. Anyway I modified the rule so it works only on Reddit u/ and r/ links, so it doesn't have a chance of touching links that aren't compatible. I made a pastebin for anyone that wants to just import the file.

{ "createdBy": "Redirector v3.5.3", "createdAt": "2024-05-02T08:36:19.092Z", "redirects": [ { "description": "Redirect to New Reddit, or old Reddit by replacing new.reddit.com in the redirect URL to old.reddit.com", "exampleUrl": "https://www.reddit.com/r/reddit", "exampleResult": "https://new.reddit.com/r/reddit", "error": null, "includePattern": ".+?:\/\/www.reddit.com\/(((r|u|user)\/.*)|$)", "excludePattern": "", "patternDesc": "", "redirectUrl": "https://new.reddit.com$1", "patternType": "R", "processMatches": "noProcessing", "disabled": false, "grouped": false, "appliesTo": [ "main_frame" ] } ] }

A redirector addon is necessary to redirect Reddit pages from the new 2023-24 redesign to either the 2018 redesign or old Reddit\*. Some pages can't be redirected, like https://www.reddit.com/prefs/feeds/ and https://www.reddit.com/mod/firefox/queue (the new mod queue, firefox being the subreddit name).

When I go those links, the following addons don't work for them: Reddit UI Redirector, Old Reddit Redirector, and Old New Reddit Redirector. New Reddit Redirect doesn't even work at all for me, though it hasn't been updated since 2019 and there doesn't seem to be a repo online, so its probably close sourced. I left reviews for all of them. The only addon I found working both links is UI Changer for Reddit.

\* I tried making a regex rule with the Redirector addon but it didn't work.

Firefox@lemmy.ml: Any addons or scripts that allow for clicking on Twitter posts to open them in new tabs, or show a right-click context menu item "Open link in new tab"?

When I click on a post in a twitter feed it opens it in the same tab when I want to open it in a new tab, and continue scrolling the feed.

Firefox@lemmy.ml: Any alternatives to Firefox History Merger for merging history files (places.sqlite)?

The GitHub repo for Firefox History Merger was archived back in 2022, while it still works it might be a good idea for a newer alternative in case Firefox makes breaking changes in the future.

Firefox@lemmy.ml: Is it possible to duplicate a tab without reloading it, like actually make a copy of it?

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.world/post/14561750

> When I duplicate a tab, a new tab is created with the same URL and I have to wait for it to download again. Why wouldn't Firefox just duplicate all the data of the tab into a new tab?

Lemmy.world: Any addons like Stylus for websites styles, that can automatically backup files on my device?
  • Tab Session manage can automatically backup sessions to the backup folder. I mentioned that on r/Firefox and got this response:

    Oh, this is interesting. It does a backup-to-disk 30 seconds after startup.

    During init() it schedules the backup with

    setTimeout(backupSessions, 30000);

    This generates a silent download to a predefined folder through the functions in these files:

    https://github.com/sienori/Tab-Session-Manager/blob/master/src/background/background.js

    https://github.com/sienori/Tab-Session-Manager/blob/master/src/background/backup.js

    https://github.com/sienori/Tab-Session-Manager/blob/master/src/background/export.js

    I didn't know setTimeout() worked in background scripts. If setInterval() works, too, then this could be done every 15 minutes or whatever interval would be sensible for user styles.

  • Lemmy.ml: Any addons like Stylus for websites styles, that can automatically backup files on my device?
  • I've received complaints about spamming posts so I added the instance names in the titles. I thought there's no harm in posting crossposting, I know Lemmy is federated but I want to ensure they show up instead of hoping for automatic feed algorithm to show them when it may or may not.

    IDK why I so much flak. If any here downvotes my posts or this comment please respond below with your thoughts to help me figure out how to move forward.

    Edit: I want to automatically export my themes because I've lost themes in the past on Firefox when addon data would unexpectedly get wiped.

    I did some searches but it appears that addons like Stylus only support syncing with cloud storage.
