    Unhappy WordPress 4.4 update breaks itself

    FYI...

    WordPress 4.4 update breaks itself with SSL certificate problem...
    - http://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/wordpr...r-certificate/
    Dec 9, 2015 - "WordPress4.4 has just been released and it is highly recommended to update. BUT it is -broken- on many servers. The update will go OK -but- it will also update the SSL certificate bundle that WordPress uses to update itself, the themes and plugins. The certificate bundle appears to be damaged-or-incorrect and stops any WP updates. You will get a message saying http_request_failed: “SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate” whenever you try to do anything involving WordPress updates, updating or installing themes or plugins or using Jetpack features like stats or sharing etc. The error screen will look something like this. It doesn’t matter what plugin or theme you try to update. the error message will be similar:
    >> http://myonlinesecurity.co.uk/wp-con...date-error.png
    ... found this post on WordPress support that does fix the problem. All my WP sites gave me the SSL warning until I used the certificate bundle from that post:
    - https://wordpress.org/support/topic/...error14090086s
    ... until WordPress fixes/updates themselves, you should manually do this yourself...
    WordPress could send out a hotfix of some sort now to make this update... - Derek"

    Exclamation Adblock Plus 2.7 for Firefox released

    FYI...

    Adblock Plus 2.7 for Firefox released
    - https://adblockplus.org/releases/adb...refox-released
    2015-12-15 - "... In order to support multiple processes properly we had to implement massive changes to the core functionality of Adblock Plus. These changes should have almost no visible effect other than improved performance however.
    Visible changes:
    - If pop-ups are blocked after the redirect, the pop-up window will actually be closed and not merely prevented from loading (issue 443).
    - The diagnostic page under chrome://adblockplus/content/errors.html has been removed, it was of very limited use (issue 3357).
    Known issues:
    - Element hiding functionality isn’t working on Mac OS X when multi-process mode is enabled (bug 1187099). Given the lack of progress on Mozilla’s side, we will have to come up with some work-around later on.
    - Issue reporter doesn’t create screenshots when multi-process mode is enabled (issue 3375). To be addressed in the next release.
    - “Unsafe CPOW usage” warnings will still show up in Error Console sometimes when multi-process mode is enabled, most prominently when using the list of blockable items (issue 3407). To be addressed in the next release.
    - Selection in the list of blockable items isn’t remembered reliably when multi-process mode is enabled (issue 3259). To be addressed in the next release."

    Exclamation Adblock Plus 2.7.1 for Firefox released

    FYI...

    Adblock Plus 2.7.1 for Firefox released
    - https://adblockplus.org/releases/adb...refox-released
    2016-01-19
    "With this release Adblock Plus becomes fully compatible with the upcoming multi-process mode in Firefox, it no longer relies on backwards compatibility hacks in Firefox (issue 3259, issue 3407, issue 3449, issue 3465, issue 3486, issue 3494). This also means that the screenshot functionality in Issue Reporter is fully functional now (issue 3375), and also quite fast (issue 3504).
    - Additional changes:
    Improved performance: patterns.ini was being saved way more often than necessary (issue 3473).
    $ping filter option is back and will especially apply to requests sent via navigator.sendBeacon() (issue 3452).
    Requests produced by <img srcset> and <picture> will be assigned type image (issue 3459).
    Requests produced by the Fetch API will be assigned type xmlhttprequest (issue 3459).
    genericblock and generichide types will no longer show up in the filter assistant (issue 3478).
    Removed non-standard JavaScript syntax, which caused warnings in Firefox Aurora and Nightly builds (issue 1434, issue 3418, issue 3421, issue 3502, issue 3505).
    Fixed: Previously disabled and removed filter is still disabled when added back (issue 3451).
    - Regressions fixed:
    As the previous release changed Adblock Plus quite drastically, it inevitably introduced some issues. As far as we know, all of these have been resolved:
    Pop-up blocking doesnít catch redirects to a different domain (issue 3458).
    Issue Reporter gets stuck if filter subscriptions need updating (issue 3461, issue 3464).
    Screenshot marker in Issue Reporter is no longer red (issue 3503).
    Fixed image preview in Blockable Items tooltip (issue 3491).
    - Known issues:
    Element hiding functionality isnít working on Mac OS X when multi-process mode is enabled (bug 1187099). Mozilla is working on this..."
