Spain
Spain, being the 14th largest economy in the world and 5th in the European Union in terms of nominal GDP, is a "permanent guest" of the organization, although the Spanish government's policy is to not request official membership.[53][54] As such, a Spanish delegation has been invited to, and has attended, every G-20 heads of state summit since the G-20's inception.

Kremlin Has Hillary's Emails
The Kremlin is considering whether or not to release some 20,000 hacked Clinton emails reportedly in its possession.

Russian security services apparently obtained the emails as part of their investigation into the Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, known as "Guccifer" -- now in U.S. custody in relation to the Clinton email scandal.

Nothing unpredictable will happen...

Is that really their main dangerousness? They don't need to be leading a government to force a discourse on all of us, and that is happening all right.

Ever since Tribex stopped working with  Firefox I'm back to the tiresome process of rating all comments separately before responding to comments.  However when you try to scroll down after rating a comment it changes the rating, and doesn't scroll down the page as intended.  You have to click elsewhere on the page to change the focus of the curser first.  But sometimes you don't notice your 4 has changed to a 0. Damn pain.

Yes, without trib ext blogging is a different animal.
I don't remember giving FF permission to update itself!

Generic provided a solution, or rather: a workaround, last December.

I'm running Firefox 46.0.1 and Tribext still works for me.

Explanation from Mozilla here.

The bad news, however, is that we won't be able to override the signing requirement once FF 47 is out.

Not sure what it takes for an add-on to be signed?

(Can somebody - our distinguished editor perhaps- post this workaround in the Tribext page?)

Chek your first link: I looked at vetting requirements when Mozilla first threatened to implement it with the next update, but from what I gathered it's way beyond my capabilities and needs a professional programmer.

I updated the Tribext page.
