In the latest versions, the ability to view the source code of the page has disappeared. Using a prefix "view-source:" doesn't work either.

How do I view the source code now?

For now, it's possible only on Nightly, with this addon.

Why was this functionality removed at all? To force the use of nightly?

And how long will it work in nightly?

IMHO, nightly is a toy and awkward browser, It is inconvenient to use it

Hi

Firefox for Andeoid Nightly is an early look at what could be coming in Firefox for Android. It may have one or two unresolved issues, but it is a good way to see what may be coming down the track.

We have used the update of Firefox for Android to review core functionality, but that does not mean that view source is not included in a future update.

I wouldn't say it was removed. New app is not the old app minus viewsource, but the completely new app rewritten from scratch, which doesn't share any code with the old one and doesn't have this specific feature (yet).

I still do not understand: will the source code view be in the next versions or not? Regardless of whether it is created from scratch or not...
