Erk, I'll bottom post this time. I've been doing too many non list replies
recently where bottom posting confuses people for some reason.

I didn't spot this email before, wow, is it that long ago! I think they must
have sorted the Firefox issues as I was using it and I wasn't aware of any
particular issues. We were on for a good few hours in the end. A couple had
issues getting webcams working, one of which was Brave not having access from
within the Snap, but nothing down to me - I don't think!

Feel free to join us given travel isn't an issue :-)
