@swedneck:feneas.orgjan Swedneckso what's the best option now?17:04:59

My personal view is more fundamental than that, I guess: I do not want Mozilla or anyone telling me what add-ons I can install.
Then use an unbranded build or Beta/Nightly.

@dannycolin:mozilla.orgDanny ColinThe point of blocking it on the Release channel is that it's like giving a child a loaded gun.17:18:32

I understand their perspective, I just do not agree. 😇

@jryans:matrix.orgJ. Ryan StinnettI want someone to rethink and reimagine the add-on permission model such that bad add-ons are clearly scary to most normal people and we can move away from the current model of some quixotic gatekeeper playing middleman and making arbitrary decisions.17:25:27
@jryans:matrix.orgJ. Ryan StinnettIf anyone knows any security UX experts, I would be interested in chatting with them to explore the problem space, so please send them my way. No one has really tried to have new thoughts this in a decade, so there's lots of room for new ideas that give users more freedom and control.17:28:28
@swedneck:feneas.orgjan Swednecki don't see what's wrong with just having like 3 bright red warning dialogs before enabling an "unsafe" addon17:30:13
@swedneck:feneas.orgjan Swedneckif you still enable it, you're either confident you know what you're doing, or you'll probably climb into a power transformer soon enough anyways17:31:03
@jryans:matrix.orgJ. Ryan StinnettIt's definitely quite a complex and nuanced UX challenge... With any unsafe path, there's an increased chance that scammers will just make a video or screenshots telling uninformed people what to click to put themselves at risk. So, I fully understand that, but I just refuse to settle for the current model that blocks user freedom. We must find a better way than just letting vendors decide "we know better than you".17:34:32

so what's the best option now?
closest is probably running the docker container locally. can't just open the local files

Right, we'd need something that defends against that.
