View source in external brouser stopped working
Firefox 102 beta stopped opening source of web pages in external editor
I have view_source.editor.external set to "true" and view_source.editor.path set to "C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe"
Before version 102, CTRL-U on any web page would open the page's source in the external editor.
In 102, the source is opened in the internal source viewer (in a browser tab).
The console shows:
this._caUtils.getDefaultExtension is not a function viewSourceUtils.js:413 getTemporaryFile chrome://global/content/viewSourceUtils.js:413 openInExternalEditor chrome://global/content/viewSourceUtils.js:265 openInExternalEditor chrome://global/content/viewSourceUtils.js:216 BrowserViewSourceOfDocument chrome://browser/content/browser.js:3131 BrowserViewSource chrome://browser/content/browser.js:3207 oncommand chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml:1

Hi Alex, I notice getTemporaryFile and am reminded of a change in Firefox 102 related to downloaded files: they either can be saved in the "Save files to:" location per the updated flow in Firefox 98, or reverted to the system temp folder using a new preference. By any chance, did you change browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir from false to true?
Actually, I get the same error either way. You seem to be learning more in Bugzilla:

A pleasant surprise to be sure. I am cautiously optimistic.
