Firefox extremely slow to load pages after startup - try deleting the profile Archived subdirectory


I've been experiencing this problem the last two weeks or so - Firefox starts up but it takes a few minutes to load the pages. Deleting the Archived directory seems to solve the issue. You'll find this folder in your Firefox Profiles directory under a directory called "datareporting". Note you may find a few named profiles there but just delete this Archived directory in each one you find. It causes no harm and loses none of your settings.

So in Linux you should find that at /home/yourloginname/.mozilla/firefox/firefoxprofilename.default/datareporting/.

Windows may have it under: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\LastModifiedDir\DataReporting\Archived.

2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238

3) Modify the domain it acts on if you’re using a different pod

I also made multi-column userstyles for other social media sites, but diaspora is the one I've refined the most.

Saviez-vous que lorsque vous repartager une publication, la personne qui a publié d'origine ne voit que votre partage et non votre j'aime? Il serait bien de prendre quelques secondes pour Aimer sa publication d'origine!!!! 😀

Did you know that when you re-share a publication, the person who originally published only sees your sharing and not your I like? It would be nice to take a few seconds to Like his original publication!!!!!!! 😀

Merci!
Thank You!

If you are constantly being logged out of #pluspora, or diaspora in general, @Bonobo found out that if you're using Diaspora Publisher plugin for Chrome and have "Enable Notifications" turned on with that, it's the cause of being logged out. So, disable "Enable notifications" in that plugin and you should be good.

Anyway, thanks for the credit! I'm actually a newbie. I had no idea this was even a possible thing until @Filip H.F. "FiXato" Slagter showed the initial code example and I was shocked at how simple it was.

I mean, the tiling is goofy, but it works. The ironic thing is that I had been studying javascript layout and had already discarded float:left for my own project. I realized the tiling wouldn't work the way I wanted... I tried to figure out a bunch of combos with float:left, float:right, multiple columns...nothing worked right.

What I totally didn't realize was that float:left would still be good enough.

Also, others had already done this before, I just didn't know about it. I wish I had...it would have turbo-boosted my diaspora experience a lot earlier.

Anyway, now I'm trying to tackle Hubzilla and tumblr, and it's... more difficult. A lot more stuff to fight, at least with tumblr. With Hubzilla it's looking easier, but still more fiddly...

Two column Comments in diaspora


Here's CSS code for the Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox, Opera) for multi-column comments. This makes the comments a bit more compact and easier to read on wide screens.
/* Change the 40% and 60% widths to alter the left/right split */
/*   between post and comments */

/* Change 50% to 33% for three columns */

\#single-post-content.col-md-6.single-post-content {
    width: 40%;
}
\#single-post-interactions.col-md-6.single-post-interactions {
    width: 60%;
    column-count: 2;
    column-width: calc(50% - 5px);
    column-gap: 5px;
}

.comment.media { break-inside: avoid; }

.container-fluid { max-width: none; }

If you aren't familiar with using Stylus, the basic steps are:

1) Add Stylus plugin to your browser (available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera)

2) Go to pluspora (or your diaspora pod)

3) Click on Stylus's S icon (in upper right... show more

Multi-column Stream in diaspora!


One thing I like about Google+ is the multi-column stream view. It means I can browse articles more quickly than with a single column view, with less scrolling effort. Conversely, it means my followers can browse articles more quickly, so more people see my posts. It's great! More engagement, more enjoyment, less time spent.

Diaspora has many features I like, being similar to early G+. But it has just a single column stream view...until now! It turns out that adding a small bit of CSS code gives a crude multi-column stream view. It's not neat Masonry tiling, with weird gaps. But it's good enough for me.

The steps to do this are:

1) Use Chrome or Chromium

2) Install the Stylus plugin (search for "stylus chrome")

3) Go to pluspora.com (or whatever diaspora pod you're on)

4) Click on the “S” plugin icon in the upper right; select Write Style for plusp... show more

Please be sure to use the #mywork hashtag


This is one of the ways people can control what they see. I am far more interested in things like art and music coming from creators than from shares, although if the shared thing has the hashtag, I will then see it. Accurate tagging is very important, in general.

Hashtags are the most effective discovery on D* and they're far better than the "suggested user" lists and "you may know" and "you may like" foisted on us by Google+

Tip for GPlus refugees coming to the Fediverse.

As a GPlus refugee I immediatly started comparing it with the new social network I migrated to and expected it to have G+ features. Does it have communities? Does it have collections? Why can't I edit my post? This attitude only led to disappointment while in the mean time I completely overlooked great features that the new social network had.

Now my tip is this. Take your time to look around in the new network, don't expect it to be like G+ but keep an open mind and judge it on it's own merits. After some time you'll find out that your new social network has it's own qualities that you start to care about and love.

Pluspora and advertising

Regarding advertising on our pod:

There's a little confusion over advertising on pluspora, so I'd like to clear this up a bit.
--Spambots whose only posts are ads, with no personal interaction and no other content are not permitted to have accounts.
--The podmins will not ever accept payment for advertising. This is a slippery slope we're not heading down.
--However, citizens of pluspora who interact in good faith who are small business owners who would like to post occasionally regarding their services along with other non-advertising are free to do so.
--Other pods on the Diaspora network may have different rules, so just be aware. Always remember, we are part of the bigger Fediverse.

This is very similar to what we experienced on GPlus.
Thanks! Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks a bunch for the #tip, @Garry Knight! First results are fine, yet exceeded the 4.2 MB platform limit, so I got to "play around" a bit longer ;)


 
#pluspora #xmpp #chat #tip
I'm pleased to announce that pluspora now has a working xmpp chat server! I don't have the integration with the pluspora webpage turned on because I had issues getting that to work (and even when it does work it doesn't work well and some have complained about that client taking up space on the page) but you can use any xmpp chat client to connect. All you need to do is use pluspora.com as the server and then login with your pluspora id and password. You should be able to chat with anyone else on pluspora, other pods, or any other xmpp chat servers. You'll manage your contacts through your xmpp client. If you have any questions or issues about it, just let me know!


 
The 4MB limit on diaspora can be annoying at times but now there's another tool from Google you can use to resize your photos and compare to the original to see any differences after it's resized! #tip

Looking for other ways to interact with pluspora (Chrome/Firefox/Opera extension, scripts, etc)? Look no further!

Making Test Posts


I created an Aspect called Private and didn't add anyone to it. When I want to make a test post to see if something works, like different ways of posting photos from different sources, I post it to that single Private Aspect and nowhere else. No one gets to see the result except me. When I'm done, I can delete it. It saves clogging up the Stream for other people.

Useful? If so, please reshare.
