I want to extend the functionality in the "view page info" window to allow for filtering of page media. This will be very useful for me and I can avoid using add-ons like 'Download all images' (slow and only works for images)

Req: Under the 'media' section, I want a 'filter' option that allows me to filter the media that matches a given regular expression. Simple ask.

There are the things I did: 1. Browsed through the add-ons to find something on "view page info". Found nothing. Even on Google. 2. Browsed through the documentation on developing extensions with the hope of developing one. I didn't find any examples on how to modify this particular window. (I am a developer myself)

Can someone point me in the right direction for this particular case ? (No generic replies please)

Please see attached screenshots of what I want.

Add-ons/Extension Update: FireFox Extension Fixes Released! Updates for Versions 47-thru-65!

Updates – Last updated 14:35 PST May 14, 2019. We expect this to be our final update.

  • If you are running Firefox versions 61 – 65 and 1) did not receive the deployed fix and 2) do not want to update to the current version (which includes the permanent fix): Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 57 – 60: Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 47 – 56: install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.



Updates – Last Updated: 17:04 EDT May 9, 2019

A less technical blog post about the outage is also available. If you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4. (May 9, 17:04 EDT)

Mozilla CTO Eric Rescorla posted a blog on the technical details of what went wrong last weekend.



Updates – Last Updated: 19:28 EDT May 8 2019

We’ve released Firefox 66.0.5 for Desktop and Android, and Firefox ESR 60.6.3, which include the permanent fix for re-enabling add-ons that were disabled starting on May 3rd. The initial, temporary fix that was deployed May 4th through the Studies system is replaced by these updates, and we recommend updating as soon as possible. Users who enabled Studies to receive the temporary fix, and have updated to the permanent fix, can now disable Studies if they desire.

For users who cannot update to the latest version of Firefox or Firefox ESR, we plan to distribute an update that automatically applies the fix to versions 52 through 60. This fix will also be available as a user-installable extension. For anyone still experiencing issues in versions 61 through 65, we plan to distribute a fix through a user-installable extension. These extensions will not require users to enable Studies, and we’ll provide an update when they are available.



"Updates – Last Updated: 11:51 EDT May 8 2019 (From Mozilla Blog)

Firefox 66.0.5 has been released, and we recommend that people update to that version if they continue to experience problems with extensions being disabled. You’ll get an update notification within 24 hours, or you can initiate an update manually.
An update to ESR 60.6.3 is also available as of May 8th. We’re continuing to work on a fix for older versions of Firefox, and will update this post and on social media as we have more information."



A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061).

There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)



"Last Updated: 00:54 EDT May 5 2019

Updates:

Some users are reporting that they do not have the “hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973” study active in “about:studies”.

Rather than using work-arounds, which can lead to issues later on, we strongly recommend that you continue to wait. If it’s possible for you to receive the hotfix, you should get it by 6am EDT, 24 hours after it was first released.

For everyone else, we are working to ship a more permanent solution. (May 5, 00:54 EDT)

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience. (May 4, 15:01 EDT)"

Hello, I have a problem with ebay. If i wanna search something, i have to chose category, nothing happen,then F5, then when i wanna chose only buy now, select, nothing happen, so i have to one more time refresh.

Everything is working, when i start FF with shift. I try disable all addons, theme and extension, and nothing will help.

It start after install Pop-up Blocker, i think because all new pop up opens in new tab, but i already unistall this addon long time ago, but effect still remain.

The pages I load is always redirected to some websites such as : nova.rambler.com, applepanda.com, oneclkads.com and so on. I have installed an addon for my browser called "Redirect Control" by the publisher " hjgwmvya " and works pretty fine till this day. As I am getting a lot of unauthorized redirects, the addon asks to redirect or not. But it is not near perfect 'cause it always asks to allow redirection every time I open websites like "Wikipedia". But i can change to "allow always" option but there is no "never allow" option which doesn't satisfy me. While the addon is installed and works fine, I have to remove the redirection source or something that causes the redirection. Is there a way that I can remove the redirection source?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-fonts-and-colors-websites-use

I have pinned about:preferences#content to access Colors and switch between Always or Never but a toolbar button would be much better.

There are a few addons related to this like https://addons.mozilla.org/bg/firefox/addon/toggledocumentcolors-198916/ but after firefox 57 is released they would probably not work and most of them are too complicated.

Is it even possible to write a simple addon using web extensions for a toolbar button to simply switch between the colors defined in Prefences > Colors and the default web page colors?

I used to have ad blocker plus and it worked great. The icon was on the tool bar. Two days ago I upgraded to Firefox version 45 and ad blocker plus disappeared. I've tried to reinstall it, and when doing so I'm getting a message that says Firefox is blocking it--and it asks me if I want to "allow" it. I click "allow", the run bar completes and it says that ad blocker plus is installed. But it doesn't appear on the tool bar nor do the ads stop appearing. Pretty annoying. Is there anything I can do to get ad blocker plus working with this version of Firefox? Thanks.

I have multiple computers, and I don't know which one is providing the "base" sync, or which one is being upgraded. It appears that new changes (an added extension, or bookmark) gets "erased" by something. There does not seem to be a way to say PC 'A' is the device to sync to or, to say PC 'B' adds a bookmark and I want it reflected on 'A' and 'C.'

It would help if I could access or see the sync so that I could figure what is forming the "base" of my synced data, or if I could edit that directly to push to all devices.

I've been using Anonymox and I have a question on testing whether or not it really works.

I pull up a proxy and geo-test my IP. Usually it's somewhere in India. Then I go visit a known site that I own. Then I check Google Analytics on that site and I don't see anyone in India looking at it. So why wouldn't this be working?

Well, here I am again.......

I use PasswordBox every day, throughout the day. Actually, I depend on it. It seems that every time Firefox has an update, my Password Box is not showing or usable - even though it shows up in my "Add On's" section.

I have deleted it and re-downloaded it, and PasswordBox still is not useable. Why?

I want PasswordBox, I need PasswordBox, I do not want Firefox to disable it. So, how do I get it back on to my Firefox? Or do I need to quit using Firefox and go back to Internet Explorer?

This is so frustrating - and so yesterday - to have this happen every time an update for Firefox is issued.
