Dr. Brownstein: COVID-19 is Much Less Deadly than the Common Flu

The good news is that you can let the fear go. This virus is not deadly to the vast majority—over 99%– who get it. In fact, I propose at the end of this nightmare, the death rate will be much lower than the common flu that many of us suffer from.

Ten Questions for the U.S.: Where did the Novel Coronavirus Come From? - Global Research

Since the director of the U.S. Centers of Disease Control, Robert Redfield admitted that some Americans seemingly dying from flu were tested positive for the novel coronavirus, can I conclude that those people actually died from the novel coronavirus? Among the 34 million influenza patients, with a death toll of 20,000, how many were misdiagnosed?

When did the misdiagnoses start? And did it actually start from August 2019? These questions are so vital that the world is waiting for an explanation from the United States.

Content update: Firefox guides, extensions

ClearURLs now handles eTag filtering, therefore ETag Stoppa by the wonderful 'claustromaniac', who is a major contributor to the 'ghacks' user.js project, is no longer necessary. I'm actually a tiny bit sad to have dumped ETag Stoppa, but efficiency supersedes the tears.

When Kevin R. added eTag filtering to his wonderful ClearURLs add-on, my first thought was whether it works as well as ETag Stoppa, so i asked him and this was his reply...

Both implementations are almost identical. I have oriented myself on the source code of claustromaniac and made some adjustments, so that for example the ETag Filtering can be switched off in the preferences and is included in the statistics of ClearURLs.

From a purely technical point of view both implementations do the same.

If that's not enough detail for you, you can read the rest here.

As a result of this change i updated both Firefox config guides as well as my extensions page.

Firefox user-overrides.js update

I added the following prefs to my user-overrides.js file:

user_pref("security.osclientcerts.autoload", true)
user_pref("security.tls.version.enable-deprecated", true)

The first determines whether to use security certificates provided by the OS. This apparently works for Windows and Mac but i'm unsure whether it applies to Linux. Nevertheless i added it anyway.

The latter re-enables TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support. If this is disabled then websites that use older TLS protocols, such as some personal sites which are not maintained, yet might have great information, will not load by default. If you set this to 'false' you will be given the option to enable it when Firefox runs into a site that uses the older protocols, so if you don't like this change then just copy the pref to the user section and set it to 'false'.

You can grab the file here.

Content update: MP3 Factory: 'De-borking' MP3s on Linux
