I can't change charset for viewed web-page

Skrevet

Previously Firefox have an function and could change charset by custom control. But, now this action is disabled in menu. I need use it for web-developing and testing.

How to activate this function?

Firefox 64.0.2 x64

I think Firefox only enables the menu if the server does not send a character set header and the page also does not contain a meta tag declaring the charset.

I see this is not new: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3041063 (off site link)

No, server send headers (it's local server on PC). I looked link, but it can't help.

Can I activate the element menu and change charset forcly with about:config?

Yes, if the server sends charset, the menu is disabled. While debugging, can you omit that header?

When you click View, Firefox sets disabled="true" on the Text Encoding item, so regardless of it's appearance, it doesn't respond to clicks. I don't know of a way using CSS to override the functional aspect.

If the server and page do not set the charset, and the browser falls back to the default, then the Text Encoding menu is enabled. For example: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/quirks.html

I found a tricky way to enable the Text Encoding menu. This involves using the Browser Toolbox to keep pop-up menus open or use about:config (ui.popup.disable_autohide = true) and the Browser Console.

You can run this code in the Browser Toolbox or the Browser Console with either the View menu open or the encoding list visible via "3-bar menu -> More -> Text Encoding".

/* View -> Text Encoding */
window.document.getElementById("charsetMenu").removeAttribute("disabled");
/* app-menu -> More -> Text Encoding */
elm = window.document.getElementById("PanelUI-characterEncodingView");
elm = elm.getElementsByClassName("subviewbutton");
for(E in elm){try{elm[E].removeAttribute("disabled")}catch(e){}}
