Firefox had an update that fucked several of my add-ons, including Noscript.

Art Vandelay - I am a little bit miffed, and therefore you all have to hear about it.

I had the same thing happen. I had to switch from Greasemonkey to Tampermonkey for all my scripts, and find some replacements for crap that wasn't even compatible anymore. Quite the pain.

They changed the fucking new tab page on mobile, too.  No more reference images for the my "Top Sites," and the fucking titles of the pages are truncated to, like, a dozen characters...and there's no fucking way to change it.  Sure, its fast, but good holy fuck, why'd they need to fuck the interface in the process?

Yeah, me too.  There's a fork browser based off of Firefox called Waterfox that still works with all of the add-ons I had.  Might be worth a look for some of yours.

People who call for the repeal of the 17th Amendment and/or the ratification of the Congressional Apportionment Amendment, because:

1. The former would return the choice of Senators to state legislatures, which would allow for corrupt political machines to control the US Senate and turn state legislative elections into elections for Senators, without consideration of state-level issues.

2. The latter would expand the US House to 6,293 seats. (Not making that up; I ran the numbers.)

Petty as fuck, but I've got a package I'm supposed to receive today...and it ain't fucking here.  The mail prick is over two hours off their normal delivery time and I'm starting to get a bit irritated.  They've got 37 minutes to get this shit here before I get properly angry.

And, its in the rental office.  Which is closed until Monday.  Great.

I've no fucking idea how, but apparently the new update for NoScript has caused it to go full retard. Trying to access the list of scripts on any given webpage causes it to reduce the size of my window, of all things. I wouldn't mind so much if not for the fact that good script blockers for Firefox seem to be rather few and far between, especially nowadays.

I have to say, technology not quite working as it's supposed to is one of the most frustrating things in the world.

I love it when updates and "fixes" break something even more.  I'm looking at you, Bethesda and NetherRealm.

Flu that spreads to your inner ear causing labyrinthitis.  All the fun of flu but with the added bonus of vertigo, headaches, deafness and excruciating ear & jaw pain.  Tell you what, vertigo combined with muscle fatigue/weakness makes for an interesting experience when trying to walk.

Why do no video game store clients have tabs of all things? It's 2017 (hell, it's practically 2018) and neither Steam nor Galaxy has what fucking well should've been a standard feature back when the 2010's were just getting started. I must say, I'm fed up with having to browse one page at a time like I'm using Internet Explorer circa 2001.

Its not like there are standard controls in about twenty different languages (and frameworks) that serve that exact purpose.  Hell, if they really can't use them, then find some crap online that works relatively well, and reimplement it for...whatever ass-backwards methods you're using.

The touchscreen on my tablet freaked the fuck out for a while.  Started with a square inch dead zone on the bottom right...then, noticed that I was getting phantom touches in that section since I have that developer option enabled.  It was actually a bit spooky, like my tablet was possessed by the spirit of a complete cunt.  Power cycling seems to have exorcised the issue, thankfully.  I like being able to use periods.
