don't you love applying to wage slavery not even knowing if you'll be accepted to be a wage slave? I'm pretty privileged as I will be fine whether or not it happens, just with mild annoyance, but jesus I can't imagine being economically disadvantaged and having your meal rest on whether or not the bloke on the home depot hiring team decides you deserve to lift boxes all day

Ah, they use '.xpi' even for WebExtensions, weird.

Ah, you can get the url of the extension from the '+ Add to Firefox' button, then unzip that. An alarming amount of addons seem to use '.xpi's given that they're going to be killed off before the end of the year..

Is the source code for Firefox plugins hosted anywhere? I'd really not like to start from scratch to create a plugin that refetches broken bookmark favicons..

@bunnyhero Ok, I'll try and explain what I *think* is going on here.

So for an image like this one: google.com/culturalinstitute/b,

1) Javascript requests the 'encrypted' 512x512 tiles of the image,

2) It 'decrypts' them with the js equivalent of this magic function: mastodon.cloud/media/WHY6oZkRf

3) displays them on the screen from memory with a blob url.

I guess this is done to copy protect the images? Super wierd.

mastodon.cloud/media/Ix_sUbdL7 Holy shit it works!.. This wierd function fixes the 'encrypted' files on the site by removing 4 bogus bytes at the start and end of the file and fixing the huffman table..

So I found this program to download images off the Google Art Project.. It doesn't work anymore but this particular file is ACTUALLY ARCANE: github.com/EmelyanenkoK/GAPDow

Like, it seems like the author transcribed minified javascript into python.. Does it work? Did it ever work? Who knows! I'll try some stuff out later.
