@Jack we have another case of lost login key on the tex site. It looks like there is no associated stackexchange account or email address, but in my opinion the language pattern etc seem to be consistent with the previous account. Is this enough to merge? (see https://topanswers.xyz/transcript?room=347&id=93240&year=2021&month=3#c93240 for details)
Do we already have some "What to do if I lost my login key" question? As this seems to happen fairly regularly it might be useful to start such a post if we don't already have one.

>Trick: if you also select text that is not in a code block (for example, from "correctly?"), you can copy all code blocks at one. Tested with Chrome and Firefox, however in FF somehow there is a blank line between every line.
Of course copying more than one code blocks at the same time is not usual, but I think if one select from a point to another point in a page, one should expect the selection to cover everything between them, no matter what those points are.
not sure whether to call that a bug — if you have three separate code blocks CTRL-A should only select one of them at a time. There is no obvious way to have 'in-block' syntax highlighting changes, you really need a mixed mode highlighting plugin that recognises the lua bits (if that's even possible)
is that because the scroll bar appears and overlays the icons?
I have a somewhat related problem. On Safari one has to fine-tune the width of the chat column to be able to press the reply button. The tuning depends on the message, i.e. one has to readjust the width basically for every reply. I am wondering if I am the only one with this problem.
Not a serious bug but might be something worth looking to.

>@निरंजन, re: [your question](#question), btw I removed the additional lua code block just because I could not copy the document in one go otherwise. Not sure if this is my browser or this site, but I can't select more than one codeblock at once, but being able to copy the code seemed more useful than syntax highlighting
mmm, that's not as far away as I though.
It looks like ESR 91.0 will be released on 2021-07-13 if [this page](https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar#Future_branch_dates) is correct. I assume that roughly corresponds to regular 91.0 feature-wise.
@samcarter remember that Firefox extension that doesn't work anymore, that highlighted search results in the scrollbar?

Codidact has been talking about a "power user" community, but it hasn't launched yet so that doesn't help you now.
i've been asking questions i get from using my macbook over on nix.ta but that might not be appropriate for your issue depending on the details 🤷♂️
Something like apple.SE or superuser.SE
Does anyone know any community where I can ask MacOS questions? Codidact doesn't have one either.
I also tried with a password manager, but it does not seem to recognise the field for the key as password and thus does not automatically open to insert the password. As manually copy&pasting from the PW manager is a bit annoying, I am working around this with a userscript that automatically creates the cookie with the login key... not really secure but at leat I don't have to copy & paste it each time.
TopAnswers got a new logo, so looking different should not be the problem :)
For the open-source ads on SO, they require new art every time, though they don't say how different it has to be.
Thanks for the reminder; I meant to ping here too. (Got lost in my browser tabs again. :-) )
@Monica just mentioned on the codidact discord that the open source advertisement on Stackoverflow will probably soon open for this year (last year: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/ads/display/394409 ) Are there any plans or ideas for a new TopAnswers ad?
@Jack Some discussion about TA happening in https://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/240/the-nineteenth-byte
TL;DR: We've known for a while that we don't have anybody on the team who's wise in the ways of SEO, and were fortunate to be able to chat with someone who, while not an expert, knows more than we do, and get some pointers.
Interesting chat about SEO going on at https://discord.com/channels/634104110131445811/815422383908192296/816404584800583730
I am convinced that both Anonymous 1123 users are the same person. If you want some irrefutable evidence, you could ask them to make some edits to the user profile https://tex.stackexchange.com/users/15080/minhthien-2016 on TeX.SE. This is something that only the "real" Anonymous 1123 can do.
