I have firefox version 47, I want to view some sites as they would appear on android tablet. Found out about Responsive Design View, tried that out, I could change the page size but there was no dropdown to select a device. Researched that, I believe this was the page I found with instructions to turn on the list:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43643795/mozilla-firefox-ver-53-doesnt-show-device-option-in-responsive-design-mode

Now when I toggle Responsive Design View, it looks totally different from the picture on that page. There are no options to select from, no list of page sizes, no box to enter a custom mode - no controls at all are shown. I have attached a screenshot but even after waiting for a few minutes it never seems to load, so I dont know if it will show up.

I suspect maybe version 47 isnt up to date to handle this, but some pages I found during my search said it was.

That is a different browser, ver 53

Not sure when the commands started or what versions but activating Responsive Web Design (RWD) (CTRL+Shift+M).

There are several websites that will show your page for phone/tablet/ect http://responsivedesignchecker.com/ http://ami.responsivedesign.is http://quirktools.com/screenfly/

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Make sure that multi-process is enabled if you get the old version os the responsive design window.

You can look in "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) to see the current multi-process state.

    Multiprocess Windows
