"I became an Anarchist when I decided to drop the theories and stop seeking power. When I stopped concerning myself with those things I realised that true Anarchy is my nature. It is our nature. It is what we were doing before the theories arrived, it is what we were doing before we were encouraged to be in competition with each other."

2. Set the "fission.autostart" and "gfx.webrender.all" prefs to "true".
“Once enabled, users can test if Site Isolation is active by hovering their mouse over a Firefox tab. If enabled, the tooltip will show the [F] indicator that Fission is active, along with the PID — the OS process ID for each Firefox tab.”

“The account was not protected by two-factor authentication... It’s the second time Gevers has gained access to Trump’s Twitter account.
The first time was in 2016, when Gevers and two others extracted and cracked Trump’s password from the 2012 LinkedIn breach. The researchers took his password — “yourefired” — his catchphrase from the television show The Apprentice — and found it let them into his Twitter account.”
