I've looked without any success. I only see two options. Do it automatically or ask to do it.

But I'll look again.

Nice try... thanks.

But this is for search options (from what I can tell), not upgrade/update options. From what I've found on help and chat sites Firefox removed the option to never update or suggest update about a year ago. A lot of pissed off comments out there.

Sorry, I thought I found the smoking gun

Bellend sports commentators like Paul McGinley unable to (or too lazy to) correctly pronounce certain golfers names.

How many times does Gareth Bale say “yeah, no” in interviews. I’m surprised he hasn’t been told it makes no sense. Thick twat.

I hate how the term ‘woke’ has been weaponised as a derogatory slur and become common language to take the piss out of people.

In related news, I probably need to spend less time on Twitter.

‘woke’ is the new ‘snowflake’ and generally used by the ‘gammons’

Probably. You will see less 'Woke' rhetoric.

And it was the 'Woke' who named themselves as such. Using that term as a shorthand is not necessarily a sign of disrespect, in the same way as 'SJW' clearly is realistically a slur.

But don't worry. The 'Woke' have their own terms for people who won't fully agree with them on everything they feel and have chosen to believe as 'truth.' The kindest term, used by someone right here on the BBS, is the 'Left Behinds.' That one almost reminds one of the conceit of those believing in The Rapture and is the kind of thing that makes people see the Woke as a cult. Then there's the more traditional and very common slurs the Woke hurl; 'Racist,' 'Far / Alt Right,' 'Facist,' 'Nazi,' ect.

Of course, only those truly 'Woke' could have no problem with associating dissenters with such horrible things as those above and, at the same time, feeling themselves victimized for being described by a fairly innocuous term, such as 'Woke,' a term they actually gave themselves.

Yet victimhood and lack of perspective is what being 'Woke' is all about so it's no surprise that the 'Woke' should get into a tizzy about their own name whilst reveling in freely associating other people with Nazism.

Hope that cleared up the confusion.

Self closing / push button taps that don't have a delay. You take longer, use more water and wash your hands less well than if they had a sensible delay of e.g. five seconds.

Mesh filters which fall off the tap head, making the head of the tap spray water at high pressure, meaning you either run the tap weakly or get water everywhere. Two days after the sink trap broke away and you had to replace it.

That reminds me (this must have been mentioned already), lights on a timer in a bog, sitting or shitting in the dark, FFS.

You’ve definitely proved a point.

Ha yes - the showers at my last work in Crawley used to do that, although if you leant out the door and waved your arms around frantically you could get it to come back on :D

I’m sure some clever dick found another way.

Booking a trip, then two weeks later getting an email from the airline saying they have changed your flights and seating on all four legs of the trip...

It's on American Airlines, and I see today they are cancelling all sorts of flights due to staff shortages... I assume it's related. So far I guess getting put on another flight is good news, albeit a tad inconvenient.

I wonder if he says "Si No" in his Spanish interviews?
