@ploguus Shouldn’t need all that - you should just be able to click the “Follow” button on their profile.
@ghost_bird - Agreed, but now it's: (1) open profile, (2) click "follow", (3) enter my username@domain, (4) click "proceed to follow", (5) click follow
@ploguus That’s a fallback of some kind - I’ve seen it before, but only rarely. Are you opening the profile in a new browser tab?
@ghost_bird - Yes. And I just tried *not* doing that, it's much simpler, only 2 clicks. Didn't realize it would be that different. Thank you!
@ploguus Glad to help!
@ploguus I agree I find it annoying to have to make separate account for each instance I hope the fix that
@ploguus nm I guess you're talking about something else
@ploguus This firefox add-on streamlines the process: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mastodon-simplified-federation/
