curious folks: a complete diff of Wii U system software 5.5.5 pastebin.com/LVz6UMmd
(it's very short)

hey, if anyone can figure out exactly what OpenSSL function X509_STORE_get1_certs does (undocumented apparently) I would very much appreciate it, understanding exactly what changed in wiiu update 5.5.5 hinges on that function

the wikipedia article for Generation Z kinda reads like a surrealist art piece about trying to understand the fellow kids

@quarky even if you disable "top pages" it shows up so I had to enable them, disable sponsored sites and then disable it again

@Lazol ..ah. I might have made a post theorising about how they might do that kind of thing and taint the search bar. sad to hear they in fact, have done so already

they do actually link to their provider's privacy policy - "adMarketplace" admarketplace.com/privacy-poli

from that it appears this company's bread and butter is sponsored search results, custom search bars to favour ads, predictive results, that kind of thing

and, one will note, right above their brand new ad spot in Firefox is.. a search bar. the browser's search bar. I think I can read between the lines w/r/t what mozilla's future plans are here

- the link, instead of leading to something like a privacy policy or list of that data, leads to a *GitHub repository* which appears to be for some kind of proxying server
so that did not answer my question

seems I have been Selected for a trial of Brand New In Browser Advertising like I'm an Opera user or something support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/s
hmm mozilla does know that I am trusting them to handle things like my complete browsing history right?
