This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!

I think may have a faulty keyboard, as banging on the F keys seems to effect the problem somewhat. However, I can't solve the problem, and it is quite annoying. During any given Firefox session, after a few minutes of the browser being open, the developers toolbox will begin randomly popping up and down, in rapid machine gun fire pattern, and it does not stop unless I close Firefox and open a new window. I have gone into about:config and disabled the toolbar, yet that seemed to do nothing whatsoever to the problem. Is there another (more effective) way to disable the toolbar in question? Why on Earth is this random problem occurring???

When you inspect a element and go to the box model and hover/click on the different regions of the box model it shows what region the color indicates, for example content, padding,border etc. In Firefox 37.0.1 the text which show the name of the region is White, it is completely illegible and impossible to read. Why would you make the text white? Please revert the change.

First of all firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time now in the windows OS. And I'd like to be able to adjust the colors of the html5 videos, as I can with internet explorer. Is something like this under consideration to be added in a future build? Because this lack of color settings is the only reason, I'm still using flash to play videos in youtube and other sites

In the "Applications" settings, one of the mime-type is wrong : "application/x-zip" that contains quotes. Thoses quotes cause some file upload to fail (the file mime type in the File api is wrong `e.target.files[0].type` in a file upload field event has the value ""application/x-zip"").

Any idea where this is made ? by a plugin ? by the system ? etc. I'm in FF38 Linux.

Hi,

i have just been playing around with the App-maker on Mozilla.

i created a very simple tapping app that counts up etc and finishes on a page.

Now at the bottom of my first page is the channel gate widget and i cannot remove it. its really frustrating, A) i have no idea what it does, i removed some of the channels so there is only A now. yet i cant seem to remove the channel gate widget entirely.

any help would be great. (see attached image to see what i mean)

I am a web developer, and i am using Iceweasel 31.7.0 (which is based of Firefox) under Linux Debian wheezy.

A problem appears when i am writing a javascript code. My goal is to determine a size of screen (i am using typical pc, not any mobile device). So i am writing:

var body = window.document.body.style

// block to determine width body.height = '1px' for ( var i = 0; ; i++ ) {

  body.width = i + 'px'

window.document.documentElement.scrollLeft = 1

  if ( window.document.documentElement.scrollLeft != 0 )

break } i--

// block to determine height body.width = '1px' for ( var k = 0; ; k++ ) {

  body.height = k + 'px'

window.document.documentElement.scrollTop = 1

  if ( window.document.documentElement.scrollTop != 0 )

break } k--

body.width = ( i ) + 'px' body.height = ( k ) + 'px'


So after this code both scroll line appears! When it should not be because i an k variables are choosen maximum without scroll. And, moreover, an error disappears (both scroll lines disappears) when two blocks switched by place each other (first determine height, then width).

I'll appreciate at least confirmation that it is an error, even if you cannot provide a patch for Iceweasel. Thank you.

We are using non-persistent desktops for a portion of our users and their primary web browser is Firefox, so I have attempted to customize their experience using the mozilla.cfg file which I have created. This mostly works however the very first time it opens the bookmarks I have added to the bookmarks bar fail to load. If they close firefox and re-open they come right up. Unfortunately every time they log into their virtual workstation they have top go through this process since the machine is non-persistent. The code I have used to add the bookmarks is as follows:

try {
var ios = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIIOService);
var uri = ios.newURI("https://localhost:61000", null, null);
var navBookmarksService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/browser/nav-bookmarks-service;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsINavBookmarksService);
if (!navBookmarksService.isBookmarked(uri)) {
navBookmarksService.insertBookmark(navBookmarksService.toolbarFolder, uri, navBookmarksService.DEFAULT_INDEX, "Add X");
}
} catch(e) {displayError("firefox.cfg", e);}

Like I said, it works, I just need it to work the first time, not the second.

Any ideas?
