Microsoft Edge might come to Linux

So at 3 bits a second a 100 kb picture would take 9-1/4 hours to down load?
No! Not 9.25 hours. 74 hours to download. 100 kb means 100 kiloBYTES, not 100 kiloBITS :mrgreen:

Re: Firefox Addons broken?

Don't panic. It is a Mozilla bug. Answer is: The Add-ons team is working on a fix for this. It looks like a certificate used to sign many popular extensions expired. (The verification process checks that certificate.) I don't know how soon re-signed versions of those extensions will become available...
