Topic: [Hyperbola 0.4] Iceape-UXP - useful tweaks

I did the following changes I thought others might find useful.

By default, Stack Exchange and similar websites display a cookies pop-up whenever you visit them, To disable the pop-up, in uBlock Origin (available as a PKGBUILD from Hyperbola's website) add these lines to the "My Filters" section of uBlock Origin's dashboard.

stackexchange.com##.js-consent-banner
superuser.com##.js-consent-banner
stackoverflow.com##.js-consent-banner
mathoverflow.net##.js-consent-banner
serverfault.com##.js-consent-banner
askubuntu.com##.js-consent-banner
stackapps.com##.js-consent-banner

The text size is too small for me. Changing this about:config value to 1.3 or 1.4 fixes it for me.

layout.css.devPixelsPerPx

Some Iceape add-ons can be found online on the following website (perhaps they should be added officially to the repos). In particular, the Greasemonkey add-on works great.

I use the Anti-Adblock Killer Greasemonkey script, which enables accessing websites that require JavaScript if you use an ad-blocker by informing the website that you don't have an ad-blocker installed.

I set up the colour and theme in the settings menu to use the dark system theme with colours that fit it.

The only essential add-on which is missing for me in Iceape is a calendar such as Reminderfox or Calendate.

Wow, so first things first ... another "THANK YOU". We will look especially into the addons as there are some being possible to be added also into the repositories for further release. Great to have the link for a review. I will look up into a possible packaging for downthemall further for Iceweasel-UXP and Iceape-UXP.

I thought anti adblock killer was completely dead...

I checked a bit ago, seems I was right. The continued version, same thing, etc...

Did you perhaps modify it to make it functional again?

That would be very nice to have if so.

It doesn't appear to still be in active development but it still works on a few websites I use to download files such as mixloads.com.

At least one of them can be hidden with CSS:

div.js-consent-banner {display: none !important; }

This is what I use for stackoverflow.

On Iceape, can it be configured with GNUPG support?

Maybe by packaging Enigmail for Iceape we could get a
good browser + mail client combo.

Yes, Claws Mail works, but Iceape it's a good alternative too.

Some websites require Cloudfare captchas to work but this can sometimes be overcome by overriding the user agent of the website, e.g. for website.com create in about:config the string

general.useragent.override.website.com

with the following value

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:100.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/100.0

(replace website.com with the website you want.)
