I know GPU.js and works pretty well. But I am still waiting for OpenCL in Firefox. So webCL, as webGL is already there, but why not webCL ? There is something with node-webcl or the like this. Do I have to install something alongside with the firefox installation ?

The title says it all:

After the Developer Toolbar has been removed in Firefox v62, how do I emulate media queries, like "print"? And how do I reset this setting?

Just for your information in case your are in doubt about my question: While the Developer Toolbar was active, the Developer Toolbar command for setting media emulation to print was "media emulate print". The command for resetting the media type was "media reset".

Your answer is appreciated.

I want to export my cookie permissions either through a WebExtension or a script outside of Firefox.

I'm looking at the `moz_perms` table in my permissions.sqlite, and I see three values for `permission` for entries of `type` "cookie":

  • 1: Keep cookies permanently
  • 2: Block all cookies
  • 8: Keep cookies for session

As I review the Firefox codebase, I see the following in nsIPermissionManager.idl:

 const uint32_t EXPIRE_NEVER = 0;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_SESSION = 1;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_TIME = 2;
 const uint32_t EXPIRE_POLICY = 3;

Obviously, that doesn't match up at all, so I'm probably looking at the wrong thing. I've been a user of Self-destructing cookies if that makes any difference.

Where can I find code or documentation on meaning of the `permission` field for entries of `type` "cookie" in the `moz_perms` table of permissions.sqlite? Is there a better or existing means of exporting cookie settings like this?

The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks

FF 63.0: Rendering a site fails after dynamically changing the css property "display" via jquery

Hello community, after updating my FF from 62.03 to 63.0, I experience a strange behaviour. I use the css properties "display:none" and "display:table-cell" to dynamically show and hide table columns. Prior to FF 63.0 everything worked excellent. But now, after hiding columns (by altering the css property form "display:table-cell" to "display:none"), the table and its content is displayed properly but some of the cells are missing their defined background colour. As soon as doing some action which forces a redraw of the window (e.g. resize the window or scroll the window), the complete table is diplayed properly . In order to give an impression feel free to have a look at the attached images Pre-Collapsed-Table.png, Collapsed-Table.png and Expected-Collapsed-Table.png. Meanwhile I have been playing with the "visibility" attribute in order to get the desired result. Unfortunately this is not suitable because hidden elements take up space on the page.

Is it a bug in FF 63.0? What can I do to get the previous and expected behaviour? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I am a web application developer. My application is using open authentication. As part of the login process the application stores information in the session storage of the browser. Then the user is redirected to a login page. When, after a successful login, the user is redirected back, the information in the session storage is gone. The same problem when I use local storage.

This problem only occurs with the setting: Never remember history.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Other browsers do not have this behavior.

We have an application that was integrated with several other legacy applications in the organization. We started upgrading our application to HTML 5 standards to make it work with all modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Edge. Now the problem is that, our application has redirect links to 3 to 5 legacy applications that were coded for IE 7 and no where in the migration path. When the users click on these links while working on our application, Firefox opens a blank page, making them as blockers for our application uplift. 1) is there a way to force a link to open in IE while the parent page is launched using Firefox ? I have seen this link : https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43615678/force-a-link-in-i-e-to-open-in-firefox , but this is for the opposite requirement...open Firefox from IE. 2) how do you run applications requiring .cab files on Firefox ? if there is an answer for this, we don't need to worry about #1.

Thanks.

I have a page using javascript to filter div's depending on a selection criteria. On Safari and Chrome, the filtering works just fine. Bit onFirefox (the latest version) instead of seeing the filtered list I see a new tab, titled About:

The attached images show the sequence, screen1 and then screen2 then screen3. I should see screen1 with a subset of the divs in the scrolling section.

The javascript is:

  function TLSshowhide(tlsclassname) {
/* first, hide all responsive div's */
var y = window.frames['theinterviewsdataframe'];
var z = y.document.getElementById('theinterviewsdata');
var x = z.getElementsByClassName('responsive');
            var i;
            for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'none';
             }
/* then, show the responsive div's with the selected classname */
           x = z.getElementsByClassName(tlsclassname);          
           for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'initial';
            }
}
/* When the user clicks on the artist button,  show all responsive div's */
function showArtist() {
/* when showing the artists, show all responsive div's */
var y = window.frames['theinterviewsdataframe'];
var z = y.document.getElementById('theinterviewsdata');
var x = z.getElementsByClassName('responsive');
            var i;
            for (i = 0; i < x.length; i++) {
                    x[i].style.display = 'initial';
             }
}
You can see this in action for yourself by going to http://cultconv.com/CultConv20181030/theinterviews.html and clicking the By Artist button

The list of DIV's being displayed is found in http://cultconv.com/CultConv20181030/theinterviewsdata.html

All help appreciated.
