JSON addons not working on Firefox 54 for Ubuntu

Posted

I used JSONovich addon and suddenly it stops to work, my json is just a text now. I tryed to install another json plugins, JSON-DataView and JSON-formatter but with these 2 the format is default Firefox built in format.

I am using Ubuntu 16 and Firefox is on 54.0 (64-bit).

Did they blocked all json addons to use just built in format?

HI

If the author of that particular add-on did not convert their work to the new formant being used by Firefox (a change of which they have had plenty of notice) it may be the case that this add-on will not work in Firefox going forwards.

I recommend that you contact the author of this add-on for support with this issue.

Does it has effect if you disable the builtin JSON viewer by setting this pref to false on the about:config page?

  • devtools.jsonview.enabled = false

Also make sure you have the latest Version 1.99.4 of JSONovich

I just changed about:config and put false on jsonview, now json is a plain text.

I reinstalled JSONovich now, and once it's last update is on July 6, 2017 I thought it was updated with new addons format. Closed firefox and reopened but nothing changed, I keep seeing json as a plain text.

I search for a new addon and could make it work with JSON Lite. I entered in contact with addon owner for help too.

TY guys

JSONovich works for me in the current Firefox 55 release on Linux with the builtin JSON viewer disabled (devtools.jsonview.enabled = false), otherwise I get the builtin JSON viewer. I tested by dragging xulstore.json in a Firefox tab.

I put a repository from mozilla to update firefox add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-next

so I got version 56 and for me it does not work, and now, when I look at addons it shows me jsonnovich as legacy, look at attachment

Legacy only means that this is not a WebExtension, but is an XUL based extension. These extensions should still work in the current release if they are compatible.

Are there any error messages about this extension in the Browser Console?

No, I attached an image with details, console just prints the request
