Unless mozilla addon page has one listed then your options are to search the internet to find one that has such a option for your browser to use. And if you search using the same words that is in your quotes you can find some online site with them. I did that and found some of them and you can do that to see which one would fit what your looking for.

In Firefox 57+, extensions you install in Firefox do not have the kind of free read/write access needed to do that. I would assume the same with Chrome, Edge, and Safari. Internet Explorer add-ons (ActiveX controls) probably could do it.

There are a lot of great editors you could use that run outside the browser. What is the reason for wanting to run an editor inside the browser?

Mote that you can use the Page Inspector to edit HTML code for the current tab, but changes are lost when you close the tab.

Question owner

Thanks Folks ; I googled quite a bit , with great results : I purchased 'Html Playground' from MsStore , $1.49 . Not bad actually . And downloaded these (Too tired to type out all these names So see uploaded image) . None of these fit the bill . https://tomhodgins.github.io/liveeditor/index.html# ; great but have to be online . https://ace.c9.io/build/kitchen-sink.html ; couldn't get it working . https://tryenlight.github.io/demo/code-editor-project/index.html ; great but have to be online . http://www.learn-html.org/ ; online learn html tool . THen of course : https://codepen.io/ and the like .

https://www.simonewebdesign.it/demo/html5editor/ ; very cool , works offline. And only 3k , self contained . Worth tinkering with .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:JavaScript-based_HTML_editors ; a good reference .

https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=hdg.live-html-previewer ; offfline , needs Visual Studio

https://www.quackit.com/html/online-html-editor/full/ ; Works on line only . Still good .

https://ory-editor.aeneas.io/ ; I think its a rtf editor ?

After all that it occurred to me that w3schools.com . Has a tryIt online editor : https://www.w3schools.com/html/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_header Turns out it works great online and offline(a little bit flukie) . Small prob in that the top 2 inches or so is white space . I haven't figure out how to get rid of that . I am not that skilled , Lots of code to go thru . Maybe someday . Anyways , I like it .

Well , that's all for now . Thanks
