Up until now, we have used Devise's Rememberable mechanism to re-log users
after the end of their browser sessions. This mechanism relies on a signed
cookie containing a token. That token was stored on the user's record,
meaning it was shared across all logged in browsers, meaning truly revoking
a browser's ability to auto-log-in involves revoking the token itself, and
revoking access from *all* logged-in browsers.
We had a session mechanism that dynamically checks whether a user's session
has been disabled, and would log out the user if so. However, this would only
clear a session being actively used, and a new one could be respawned with
the `remember_user_token` cookie.
In practice, this caused two issues:
- sessions could be revived after being closed from /auth/edit (security issue)
- auto-log-in would be disabled for *all* browsers after logging out from one
This PR removes the `remember_token` mechanism and treats the `_session_id`
cookie/token as a browser-specific `remember_token`, fixing both issues.
In order to work around https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/16895,
add a warning to .env.production.sample, and change the mastodon:setup rake
- output a warning if a variable will be interpreted differently by dotenv
- ensure the printed config is compatible with docker-compose
On notifications page, in settings, "Show" for quick filter bar and
unread notifications markers use the same string, while being placed in
the separate contexts - under different settings categories.
This commit splits the contexts, creating new strings:
- "Show filter bar" in place of "Show" for filter bar;
- "Highlight unread notifications" in place of "Show" for unread
notification markers, which are now simply called "Highlighting";
- There's also "Unread notifications" in place of "Unread notification
markers" string to accompany the changes to "Show" string under that
All new strings have new IDs, which will cause previous strings to
invalidate on the next translation update and new strings to be created.
This will help Mastodon translators to know that there are changes and
improve translation in accordance to the source string update.

PR #12403 added a cache to avoid redundant queries when the OEmbed endpoint can
be guessed from the URL. This caching mechanism is not perfectly correct as
there is no guarantee that all pages from a given domain share the same
OEmbed provider endpoint.
This PR prevents the FetchOEmbedService from caching OEmbed endpoint that
cannot be generalized by replacing a fully-qualified URL from the endpoint's
parameters, greatly reducing the number of incorrect cached generalizations.
