In case anyone is curious, I found the solution:


Meanwhile, i finally got off my lazy ass and figured out how to add justified-alignment to the Firefox Reader View.

NOTE: Involves restarting Firefox.

1. Locate the Firefox profile directory on your system.

On Windows, this is typically a directory like :

The definitive method to locate the profile directory would be to visit the about:support page in Firefox, and check the value of the property Profile Folder.

2. Within the above identified profile directory, open the sub-directory chrome. If a chrome sub-directory does NOT exist within the profile directory, create it.

3. In the above chrome directory, create an empty file userContent.css.

4. Open the above userContent.css and add the following lines to it :

  .moz-reader-content {
      text-align: justify;
5. Force custom stylesheets

Visit the about:config page in Firefox, search for the property toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets, and ensure it is toggled to True.

6. Restart Firefox.

7. Open a page, switch to reader mode, and enjoy the justified text!! \(^.^)/

It's alluded to in the article, but I wish keyboard programmability got more attention than switches.

I spent a lot of time picking my switches, and I like them. But what I love about my mechanical keyboard (Massdrop CTRL) is the ability to program it.

It's surprisingly important to be able to customize keypresses before the OS sees them, especially on Windows. AutoHotKey is decent, but there are a ton of edge cases where your AHK customizations just stop working because some other utility is intercepting keypresses (the most recent one I found: the Win+G Game Bar). Karabiner is pretty good at keystroke customization on macOS because it uses a kernel extension, but even it has a few situations (login windows etc.) where it doesn't work reliably.

It's also just so nice to have my customizations work on any machine without any software installs.

I usually break E-mail addresses into the following categories:

Monolithic. That one email address you put on business cards, hand out at conferences, post in public forums. Basically a catch-all that quickly becomes a firehose for spam and bacn[1] but every now and then you get an actual reachout as described in this post. They are infact gems when you get them, and always remind me how precious E-mail, as a loose social network, is.

Registrations. For creating throwaway accounts on various online social outlets. Got an IMGUR.com meme you must send to a friend over IM? No problem, your trusty registrations e-mail account, or account(s) have you covered.

Commerce. Super secure email address which is on a trusted provider, and is rarely, if ever, given out publicly. You change your password frequently on this, and make sure not to contaminate it with other identities. Typically tied to several accounts where money moves in them. Accounts with credit cards, PayPal, etc.

Others? I am interested to hear other people's single-duty uses for email? I know I could write about other categories, but those three cover a large portion of what I use E-mail for.

Interesting they don't seem to have SPF/DMARC configured properly. That would probably get rid of most spam, at least at major providers.

After setting up a DMARC reporting address for my own domain I was surprised at the amount of emails supposedly from my addresses that are getting rejected, mostly by gmail and yahoo.
