Their DRM stance, like U-play (on top of Steam), Tages, internet required to not only launch but continue to play many titles. It all still continues to this day, even after a few years back they made a big PR announcement about reducing/removing DRM from their gaming titles. Yeah, well I never saw any change whatsoever and their older library of games still are infested with Tages and more.

If I see Ubi as the publisher, I just skip it. Although it looks like I've either accidentally purchased one of their titles, or it was so cheap ($5) that I gave it a go.

e10s still interferes with pretty much any addon that needs to have some type of JS input to the page/window.

RequestPolicy, likely all UserScripts (e.g. Greasemonkey and kin), LastPass (last I tested a week ago, was still non-functional).

Although Nightly with e10s enabled does at least appear to be working (better) with addons that only need to have input/listeners/control of the GUI.

It may not be memory leaks, but Firefox refuses to release RAM once it hits a certain threshold - somewhere in the 2-4GB range for x64 (Nightly, and Waterfox); prolly a similiar range 2-3GB for 32bit FF. Easy to accomplish, open a bunch of images or dozens+ of tabs, once Ram usage hits 2GB+ start closing tabs...

It's likely the upper-end of the 2GB range, but still FF is unable to manage it's own memory usage.

Years ago now, my bank wouldn't refuse a withdrawal that was set to come out in 2 days time, that would cause my balance to go below 0, and cause a $50 NSF from the bank and an insufficient funds charge of $25 from the company that was going to try and take money. Even though in one or two days time after the automatic-withdrawal date my check would be deposited to cover the initial charge. I couldn't afford a $75 charge for nothing. So I cancelled the account and withdrew all the current funds.

Once someone has your account info you are screwed.

If only Microsoft had of gotten its way 15 years ago, we would of had:

border: 1px solid black;
Where the total width is what you say it is: 21px. Instead we have the stupidity that the actual width is 32px. and paddings, margins et al ADD to the defined width instead of being a part of the element. Which makes calculating dimensions in HTML a fucking pain in the ass.

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
