Disabling Chrome tab groups – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

My phone (Samsung S7 running Android 8.0.0) recently updated to Chrome version 85, and with it came tab groups.

I am sure this is a welcome thing for many, but I rarely have more than 8 tabs open at any time. Thus the ability to group tabs makes little sense for me.

Unfortunately, I can’t seem to avoid it. When holding on a link, “Open in new tab” has become “Open in new tab in group”, and there is no option to open it just as a separate tab.

This makes my regular tab cleaning a lot more cumbersome, as now I suddenly have two or three groups where I want to remove one or two tabs each, rather than just four tabs I want to close.

Is there a way to remove tab grouping, or at least a way to hide it away so that I don’t have to bother with it during casual internet browsing? At the very least, I can’t find anything even remotely relevant in the settings, and a rudimentary internet search has only provided news of the feature, not any details on removing it.

permissions – Whatsapp can access my microphone after disabling all sensors, other apps cannot

I’ve recently discovered the developer option “quick access toggle” for turning off all sensors on Android 10 on my Redmi and thought: “Finally a way to regain some control for when those apps can access the mic/cam”

But after testing it, i’ve noticed that some apps still are able to access the mic like usually. Whatsapp and the recorder app pick up everything like i didn’t turn it off, in telegram, a voice message is silent, like it’s supposed to be.

How is it possible for Whatsapp to just access the mic anyway?

plugins – disabling big image threshold is also disabling image rotation

Recently I started getting the below error when uploading images to my media library on wordpress –

Post-processing of the image failed likely because the server is busy
or does not have enough resources. Uploading a smaller image may help.
Suggested maximum size is 2500 pixels.

As a solution I installed the plugin – Disable “BIG Image” Threshold. I use imageoptim for optimising my images on my laptop before uploading to wordpress, so I am ok with disabling the auto scaling of my images by wordpress.

Internally this plugin is doing the below –

add_filter( 'big_image_size_threshold', '__return_false' );

But I noticed that this is also disabling rotating of my images. The images that I clicked in portrait mode are not being rotated and shown in the media library. Did anyone else face the same issue and what was the solution for this?

google chrome – Duolingo home screen is covered by a grey modal background, disabling the page from responding to clicks

Here’s a workaround in Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

In short, we’re going to find the code that’s creating that grey layer and delete it. You don’t need to be tech savvy.

  1. Right-click on one of the margins on the page (as close to the edge as possible), then go to “Inspect” (Chrome) or “Inspect Element” (Firefox).

    In Safari, first you’ll have to go to Preferences > Advanced and enable “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. For other browsers, just Google how to “Inspect.” It’s a pretty universal concept these days.

  2. This should open up a scary-looking panel. Here, we need to find the code, specifically what’s called a “<div> block,” causing the problem. Your panel may look very different than mine, which looks like this:

    enter image description here

    You may have to “navigate” a bit to find the line I’ve highlighted. You can click the tiny arrows pointing right and down to do this. Here’s what you’re looking for.

        <div id="root" onClick>
                <div class="_1yGfG _160QG"> <-- Might be different codes for you.
                  ::before <-- Almost there! Keep going...
                        <div class="_16E8f _18rH6 _39TEz _3wo9p"></div> <-- This is the bad one.

    I’m betting right now it’s _16E8f for everyone, but I’m not sure. One hint you’ve found the right one is when you hover your mouse over that line, the whole page should highlight.

  3. Select the line (click on it) and hit Backspace or Delete. The grey layer should have disappeared.

Note to Duolingo developers:

I think it’s happening because of a tracking pixel failing to load in a modal. Here’s the console error I’m seeing:

Refused to execute script from 'https://t.myvisualiq.net/impression_pixel?r=3422676887&et=i&ago=212&ao=546&aca=24380054&si=1781800&ci=135195264&pi=276804369&ad=472248560&advt=4468394&chnl=-7&vndr=115&sz=6586&u=pt=i' because its MIME type ('image/gif') is not executable.

An easier solution than trying to debug this problem might be to just allowing modals to close when a user clicks anywhere in the grey region, which is the expected behavior these days anyway.

How can I script the bootup disk in macOS Catalina without disabling SIP?

I’m on Catalina 10.15.6.

Previously, you could write shell scripts that would set the boot volume and restart the Mac, either by using bless --mount X --setBoot or by using systemsetup -setstartupdisk, but neither of these commands seem to work now when System Integrity Protection is enabled.

There must be some way to automate this, since the System Preferences app is able to change your boot disk without SIP being disabled, you just need to provide an admin password. What mechanism does the pref pane use to set the bootup disk now? Can we invoke it in a shell script?

Disabling kernel debugging – Ask Different

I’m new to kernel extension debugging. I have a test machine: Mac Mini early 2009 running 10.10.5, installed the KDK and I ran
nvram boot-args=”debug=0x146 kcsuffix=development pmuflags=1 kext-dev-mode=1 slide=0 kdp_match_name=en0 -v”

After a reboot I got a “Waiting for remote debugger connection”, and from my development machine (Mac Mini running 10.14) I’m unable to connect using lldb (getting error: KDP_REATTACH failed)
I’m probably doing something wrong in setting up the debugging, but I’d like to go back to my test machine and now I can’t reboot it without getting to this Waiting for remote debugger message. I tried entering recovery mode using Cmd+R but with no success.
How should I bring the test computer back to regular order?

Disabling SSL breaks site in Directadmin

Had to come here as it’s twelve hours since I posted a ticket to Directadmin support and we seem to be going around in circles with them.

postgresql – Disabling hash join in procedure

It depends on how you did it.

With a plain SET, you would change the parameter for the whole session.

With SET LOCAL, you would change the parameter for the complete database transaction.

The best way would be to modify the procedure so that the setting is only active for the duration of the execution of the procedure:

ALTER PROCEDURE procname SET enable_hashjoin = off;

Let me add that this is only a last ditch measure: it would be much better if you could fix the bad row count estimates that lead to the bad choice of join strategy.

plugins – Disabling Wp_is_mobile from backend?

I’m using a wordpress theme that makes use of wp_is_mobile function, but reacts badly on many occasion,
as it’s being called in many files, I was wondering if you are aware of a wordpress plugin that would maybe ‘disable’ that functionnality or pretend we’re never on mobile ?

Thank you!
