# This file is both a valid CSS style sheet,
# and a valid bash script.
# It adjusts your main Firefox profile so that github and all the
# stackexchange websites do not artifically limit main area width.
# Hooray! No more clobbered listings!
# More technically, it configures and enables userContent.css. It
# will preserve pre-existing content of that file and add itself at
# the beginning.
# You can even run it again in your profile directory to update the
# list of stackexchange websites:
# bash firefox_profile_relax_github_stackexchange_column_width.sh
# It requires curl and basic POSIX tools. May not work on BSD and thus Mac OS X but should be relatively easy to fix.
# If you don't have realpath or readlink, you may get a portable
# variant on
# https://github.com/mkropat/sh-realpath/blob/master/realpath.sh
