The main reason I always install Google Chrome on any linux distro I happen to be running is that Chrome will by default play videos from Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu without a hitch, whereas Firefox will not. In fact, neither will Chromium. This is because Google has built proprietary flash graphics inside of Chrome. … Continue reading “How to Get Firefox to Play Amazon, Netflix and Hulu Vidos on Archlinux”
Monarch butterflies are leaving Mexico and traveling north, as they always do. However, they’re coming a lot further north than they typically do in April. The first I heard about this was a text message from conservation photographer Michael Forsberg back on April 9.

Even as Gene stood with his back toward the chalkboard, sweat beading on his forehead, the blue disc hovered silently if not defiantly. It was baffling. Nothing was reappearing on the other side.

I had previously discussed how to fix this inside an Arch linux system in an article entitled How to Get Firefox to Play Amazon, Netflix and Hulu Vidos on Archlinux. Since then I’ve discovered the … Continue reading “Fixing Firefox in Fedora Linux to Play Hulu, Amazon, Disney+ and Netflix”
