Content update: user.js-notify.sh script for Firefox

I made a few small changes to my user.js-notify.sh script. This bash (Linux) script checks for updates to the 'arkenfox' user.js, my user-overrides.js, and also checks the last updated dates of my Firefox configuration guides.

The intention of this script is to automatically check for updates rather than running the 'arkenfox' updater script manually, plus it checks other stuff as mentioned.

The script can be download here and changes are here, however those already running the script will be notified automatically of the update.

Update: user-overrides.js for Firefox

I updated my user-overrides.js config file for Firefox to align with the release of Firefox v84 and the 'arkenfox' user.js. The file can be downloaded here and the changes can be found here. Remember to run the 'arkenfox' prefsCleaner script after updating.

If this all Greek to you but you're curious, see either of my Firefox config guides.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program...
