i'm unable to remove this parameter from twitter urls
1 project | reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin | 22 Jan 2022
Regardless, the filter still work, but this may not be reflected in the URL address bar because Twitter just change the content of the URL address bar without a navigation event, see https://github.com/uBlockOrigin/uBlock-issues/issues/1704.

Does "Uncloak canonical names" still leak your DNS address?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin | 15 Jan 2022
On ublock origins website about uncloaking canonical names they mention that your DNS address will be leaked if you use an extension based proxy. I have configured mine directly in the Firefox settings and i need to have my VPN enabled to access the proxy so i thought i would be ok. Later i stumbled upon this 2 year old post about DNS leaks. In the post they mention that they didn't use an extension based proxy. I also found this post about someone experiencing a similar issue as in the other post but he also had a VPN. I am wondering if my DNS will leak if i use firefox built in proxy configuration, a VPN and have uncloack canonical names enabled or have the problem been fixed. I have checked for DNS leaks on many different sites but i haven't found anything.
Firefox vs Brave - I tested them so you don't need to.
5 projects | reddit.com/r/PrivacyGuides | 13 Jan 2022
Since Brave already has a pretty good ad blocker, you should not use another blocker like uBlock Origin. "Do not use uBlock Origin along with other similarly-purposed blockers" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock). Additionally the available features on Chromium browsers of uBlock Origin is a bit different than on Firefox (e.g. no CNAME uncloaking). LocalCDN is not recommended to use and just brings unnecessary complexity to the testing.

It's syntax  is also surprisingly powerful. You want to block an element if it doesn't contain an element matching a particular string/xpath/css selector? But only on specific pages? Even if the URL is manipulated by .pushState? Easy.
I've also used it to blur the text of newsarticles talking about a particular sports event.
Frankly that part of the extension on its own is amazingly useful.

Debug tips for MetaMask, MEW and other Web3 token or NFT services

The two most common Web3 services are MetaMask and Brave-Wallet. Sites can either perform actions through one of the mentioned Web3 services, or to through TrezorConnect directly.
Custom avatars in profiles
1 project | reddit.com/r/brave | 18 Jan 2022
They are currently hardcoded in Brave code so the easiest way to use custom profile icons is to create an Avatars folder in your data folder (should be %localappdata%\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\ if running Windows), put your PNG files there and follow this list for filenames you can use. Then launch Brave.

We Have A Browser Monopoly Again and Firefox is The Only Alternative Out There
6 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 1 Jan 2022
I previously tried to fork Servo, Chromium, Electron, nidium, nw.js... and even tried out Sciter. But honestly, you can forget about all of them, chromium-based Browsers are close to impossible to fork due to google's repo tools which clone/update/auto-merge from conditionally defined source repos. All Browsers basically just use libchromium directly, maintain a patchset and are done with it, including Brave. Forking WebKit was quite easy compared to that, as building immediately worked. The /ThirdParty folder is a little mess and cmake build files for dependencies need to be rewritten someday, though.
I love the Brave Browser but this needs to be fixed if Brave wants to be a real replacement.

Great question! Dates and times are one of the most loathed obstacles in writing software that needs to work a particular way across millions of devices situated all across the globe in different regions and time zones.
In our case, we had a bit of code that aimed to measure the time until midnight/tomorrow. But when clocks change at midnight, that can really test your assumptions. As a result, the date on which clocks are adjusted can appear to be longer than 24 hours in duration. This can throws off your math if you expect the next day to be no more than 24 hours into the future.
A bit of logic, responsible for setting up a timer, wound up scheduling numerous timers when our 'How long until tomorrow' code began returning negative numbers. That mountain of unintended timers could then lock-up the browser itself. You can see our issue for the behavior here: https://github.com/brave/brave-core/pull/11030.
For 10 minutes of anxiety, check out 'The Problem of Time & Timezones' from Tom Scott of Computerphile: https://youtu.be/-5wpm-gesOY. It's a fantastic summary of the issues programmers face when dealing with time :)
