Firefox addon - close similar tabs ?

I used to use a Firefox add-on which allowed you to 'close similar tabs' (that being tabs with the same domain name). That add-on stopped working when the step change in Firefox took place about a month ago. Can anyone suggest a similar add-on which does work with current versions of Firefox ?

What's the modern way to build a development blog/portfolio site?

I've decided to become an indie game developer, and I need a website that will be half portfolio, half development blog. I'm a programmer and can handle technical setup but I have weak art/design skills. I last attempted to do something similar 10 years ago and settled on a hosted WordPress.com site, but I want to investigate other options before I revamp my website. What's the best way to make that kind of site today? [more inside]

Can I find Mallory Ortberg/The Toast's version of The Little Mermaid?

The marvellous humour/feminism/pop culture/literature/all culture, and Metafilter favourite, website The Toast has been sadly retired for a while now, but I thought it was all staying online for the present at least. Possibly one of my favourite things I ever read was Mallory Ortberg's beautiful, violent and empowered version of The Little Mermaid from her "Children's Stories Made Horrific" series but it's gone! It's vanished from the Google results and, where I've found old blogs, Pinterests, etc which purport to link directly to it, I get basically a 404. Did they get got by either Anderson's estate, Disney or whoever has the rights now? Anyway can anyone point me to a copy of the text at least somewhere? I neeeeeds it.

Please remove my app functionality.

I'm looking for a really simple photo viewing app that does not have options for sharing or editing, but is just a viewer. I would like videos to work, and to manually progress through pictures (not an automatic slideshow). Does such a thing exist? Looking for both Android and iOS apps. [more inside]

Replacement for Yahoo Groups?

I help manage a group of about 500 people on Yahoo Groups. We want off and are looking for an alternative. I tried Mailman (which is available through Dreamhost) but my beta group said the interface was too ugly and I need to find something less clunky. Google Groups may not be an option because I believe it requires a Google account. Any other ideas?

Turn-based multiplayer games for Android

I'm looking for recommendations for Android games that I can play with friends who don't live near me. Ideally I could take a turn, and then the game would wait for them to take a turn. Trivia Crack is a pretty good example, but I'd like games from other genres or especially cooperative games like Pandemic. Free or paid is fine. Thanks!

Substitute for Quickbooks on my Mac for a very small business??

So, latest Mac OS update broke my 2012 version of Quickbooks so I finally need to find a replacement. For privacy reasons, i require something that will run on my laptop, not on the cloud. Otherwise, simple is fine - the only thing that requires a business level solution is the need to track payments against invoice. [more inside]

Help me find a Lego parts website I've lost

There seem to be lots of sites where you upload a parts list and it gives you a list of shops, but I'm looking for a specific site / tool. This one had (for me) the killer feature of showing you a grid with parts down the left and the stores along the top, so you could effectively shop all stores at once. What the heck was the name of the site / tool?
