It is listed as experimental.
You should read the whole ghacks article before deciding.


I sent a post on 02/04 about that to this group, cross posted to
m.s.firefox, with followup set to m.general and it never appeared.

I have tried cross posting a couple of times between m.general and
m.s.firefox and they never showed up. Not sure why.

What would I know!! And why should I care, ... but if I had to
guess, as
you are not posting about a problem with FF but about something that
might be added to FF (and SM, I think!!), why would you want to post it
to m.s.ff?? It belongs in m.gen (IMHO, of course!!).

And, as you cross-posted to m.s.ff, it's cross-post never made it into
m.gen!

Why did you even get involved if you don't care?

because you are polluting the m.gen news group with stuff that doesn't
belong here!! Note: for what it's worth, once I establish a thread is
meant for m.s.ff, I usually mark it as read or Ignore it (i.e. K for
killfile) so I'm not bothered by it, but in this particular case, I
thought I might be able to actually assist you!

I tried!!


M.general is for any discussions. So tell me what subjects do you think
is off limits.

M.general is for any discussions which are "Off-Topic" in the Support
and Test groups!! TMP *is not* FF, it is an extension that can be used
with FF or SM ... or PaleMoon, maybe, so, as I suggested above, maybe
discussion of TMP is o.k. here

And how exactly did you help.

I expect I helped by providing *you* with a possible reason why your
cross-posted posts had not shown up in either of the groups you
cross-posted to!

As you stated> How should I know and why should I care.
If so why not just stay out.
"Not all users of FF also use TMP, so why bother the pure FF users with it??"
These groups are not for posts that only concern everyone.

Sorry for trying!!

There are many who pointed out that they want TMP and several who said
that they wouldn't upgrade because TMP wasn't available for 57+.
Also notice that I wasn't the only one that tried this for TMP. The
other one that tried is one who I would trust more than you as to what
is appropriate.

Which "other one" do you mean, Caver1?? Walt!! If so, yes, I'd bow to
his knowledge and experience every day!!

In other words if you have nothing to add ignore, don't post wrong info.

Sorry for trying to provide a reason for your posts not showing up!!
Please help me to improve myself by pointing out What "wrong"
information I have provided you!


If you cross post to both groups and it is refused in the moderated group that doesn't stop it from
getting posted to the non-moderated group. so the question by both of us.
If the cross post was refused because the subject doesn't belong then why did the non cross posted
message on the same subject get posted on the moderated group.
I almost never cross post but I do see cross posted subjects by others quite frequently. Also "because you are polluting the m.gen news group with stuff that doesn't belong here!! " You have yet to tell why / You / think this doesn't belong m.general. Maybe your
opinion counts more?
