Damn, Firefox is really that kind of gigantic never-stable software
that’s horrible for that kind of thing (recall me the concept forged by
some french librist about “liberator software”, complementar to the
“free software” concept but about sociomaterial constraints limiting
material freedom of the users), quite the opposite of software such as
TeX and their symbolic tangential versionning… Maybe it is even
intrinsic to the web…
