Silencing Multi-Tabset Collections (Solved)

Post by cosmo666 » 2021-04-14, 19:10

FYI, degraded PaleMoon performance due to hyper-active technical support tab sets...

As one who tends to have a half-dozen or so tech-info support sites open much of the time, my frustration levels had been increasing steadily, due to more programming tech related sites appearing, most of which seem to prioritize ad-related background activity. It had gotten so bad, I was finding myself waiting 30-60 seconds just to switch from one tab to another. I use an add-on called 'Tab-Set Saver', which I find extremely valuable, since it enables me to save a variety of search results focusing on a particular subject, and easily reload them all. (Example: password optional ssh login scenarios, of which there are many.) I guess this solution should have been obvious. I installed a 'Toggle Javascript' add-on, turned off Javascript, loaded a tab-set with over a dozen URL refs, and it came right up, with all the text-contact intact, but zero background activity, i.e. 'silenced'. If I need to, I can easily toggle JS back on, reload, whatever. No big deal, just figured I'd post this in case anyone else is still struggling with this issue.
(All my platforms are Linux, so can't say this works on others.)

Apropos Palemoon generally, kudos to the developers for continuing to set such a great example supporting
and intelligently bringing this distro along FBO regular users. Meanwhile the larger 'Browser Oligarchs'
find ways to disrupt and confuse their users. I still keep a copy of Chrome and FFOX around 'just in case:
typically, Chrome for YouTube, and FFOX for some banks or government agencies. For the other 90%,
Palemoon is the Goto Choice.
