Firefox, You’ve Done It Again

The Problem

After upgrading to Firefox 24, some fonts weren’t displaying correctly in one of my own websites. I was referencing a Google fonts URL in my CSS, because they’re so pretty. And free. And apparently a security risk, according to the new Firefox default settings.

The Fix

1. Type about:config in the address bar.

2. Search for “security.mixed_content.block_active_content”, set to false.

For the love of G-d, Firefox devs, please stop trying to protect us from ourselves. It’s ok. We know what we’re doing.

Mostly Raw – Day 10

Today is the last day of Portland VegFest 2013, and Brittany is pretty excited to go to that. So we’ll go, and we’re going to try and eat raw as much as possible at home before and after, because there will be a LOT of delicious cooked food at the Fest. Feast? Feast Fest.

nutrition

  • 1 Brazil nut
  • kale-banana-blueberry-raspberry smoothie
  • Irish breakfast tea w/splash of hazelnut milk
  • 2 apples, locally grown in Washington state
  • kidney bean and tortilla soup
  • small piece of chocolate bar
  • some dried raw mulberries
  • tasteless Pad Thai with 2 similarly tasteless potstickers at VegFest
  • VegFest samples
  • Lady Grey tea w/splash of almond milk and 4 ginger biscuits
  • cup of mint tea
  • piece of stone-ground chocolate
  • mixed greens salad with walnuts, vegan Parmesan cheeze and raw sauerkraut

physical activity

Push-ups to failure (1st set max today = 30), dips.

I made a little psychological headway here, probably because I was listening to some rock music that really pumps me up when working out. I feel like I can keep up my motivation if I continue the music/workout combo, so I’ll try and remember to do that.
