@ths You can add the option.

comment NetBeans 64-bit vs 32-bit
The simple answer is ... it shouldn't matter. If it does, someone in the chain is choosing to distribute 64-bit-only binaries, and that's honestly weird except in very special circumstances.

comment How can I add a certificate exception for an HSTS-protected site in Firefox?
@Mugen I can certainly understand the frustration, but it's best if we try to keep questions as focused on the problem as possible rather than going into less-relevant rants. That said, I haven't voted either way on this.

comment Chromium wasting almost all my bandwidth
@TeresaeJunior You can look at the network tab of the devtools (press F12 to open) and check what any specific Chrome tab is requesting. Not sure about the 10 Mbps though... what does this site do?

168.62.188.213 is an Azure address. Owned by Microsoft but probably rented by a third-party. Google probably wouldn't rent an Azure server. Have you checked what extensions you have installed?

comment What is a “Magic Packet” for waking a computer?
@JanDvorak That would only apply for Wi-Fi targets. And there you'd use a (subtly) different standard called WoWLAN, which requires the target to remain connected to the network (and therefore have access to the decryption key): revolutionwifi.blogspot.com.au/2010/11/… It's also largely useless now with Connected Standby being a thing.

Also, before you proceed in adding an exception... make sure you know why this message is appearing. Make sure you know who actually issued the certificate you're adding an exception for (corporate proxy? your company?). Otherwise, there's a very good chance that it's a malicious MitM attacker who will get access to all your passwords because you've intentionally disabled the security mechanism protecting you from interception. (I'm assuming here that Lastpass hasn't misconfigured their intermediate certificates.)

comment How can I add a certificate exception for an HSTS-protected site in Firefox?
Edited title to more closely reflect the question. Should be noted that it's blocking the site in the same way that you'd go "I don't know you!" if some random stranger walked up to you claiming to be your father - i.e. it's not "well-known" because it's misidentifying itself (or something on your network is changing the identification).

Firefox isn't blocking a "well-known site". It's blocking a site that misidentifies itself.

comment I'd like to learn how to program SNES games. Where do I start?
If you want, you can drop into chat and I'd be happy to try to give a few pointers. This is off-topic for Super User and too broad to be a great fit for any main Stack Exchange site, but chat is fine.

Because they're small ("lightweight portable enclosure") and there are existing designs with included batteries.

comment Minimise risk of errors caused by improper shutdown
Is it custom hardware? Can it be replaced with a lightweight device with a built-in battery, like a laptop or something NUC-class?

comment Why do similar devices use a cross-over cable instead of a straight-through cable?
@BarryTheHatchet I'm guessing he means "similar to each other", e.g. a pair of switches, a pair of computers, etc.
