Hello. I have been trying to get the Firefox debugger to hook up with the Aptana editor. The instructions that I have are obsolete. The link http://firefox.aptana.com/update/ is supposed to automatically download the extension. It just takes me to a search engine results page full of links that barely touch on the subject. I also found out the Firebug has been deprecated.

Question: Are Firefox and Aptana divorced? Is there still a way to combine the Aptana editor to the Firefox debugger?

I'm a software developer working on backend services, always juggling between Firefox and Chrome (because none of them fully satisfy my needs). What I need from them is to behave the way it will be most practical for me, which isn't necessarily aligned with the majority of users.

My current problem is this. I work with APIs which in my daily work often return various HTTP errors. These errors also contain a payload which describes the problem in detail. I want to be able to see this payload easily in the browser. Yes, I can use other tools like Postman for this (which I do), but for simple GET requests without special request headers it would be much more practical to just use a browser.

Currently, when my API opens an error (for example a 400 Bad Request), Firefox decides to just silently go back into the previous page (undos the URL change). If I open the Network tab in the Web Developer view, I can however see the failing response with all of its details. Still, this is too impractical for me.

BTW, the response contains a custom Content-Type which isn't recognized by Firefox by default. But Firefox isn't downloading the payload as a file (like it would usually do for a successful page load of an unknown Content-Type), it just silently doesn't do anything. I've installed an extension to handle my custom Content-Types (called "Open in Browser"), but since Firefox isn't attempting to open this one, I can't use it in this case.

So, how can I force Firefox to stay on that URL and show the response payload in the window? If not in vanilla Firefox, any plugins? I've already kind of spent too much time on this for my liking. :/

How can I use Scratchpad to write to apache server's root?

I'm trying to use Firefox-Developer Edition (version 45.0a2) for full web-development on my server. So, I've tried using the "Scratchpad" editor, which is great with the Vim keybindings, to write/edit an html file on my apache server's "root" directory. Unfortunately, every time I save the file the permissions are changed from "-rw-rw-rw-" to "-rw-------", resulting in a permission error.

The server is hosted on RedHat Linux, with the default umask of "0022".

The "root" directory permissions are "drwxrwsr-x. root apache ".

Is this an unusual way for web-development, using Firefox and its developer tools alone?

I could relax the permissions on the server, however, since the firefox browser is, technically, still connected to the public internet, is there a security concern in doing this? I can't seem to find helpful relevant information that's specific enough to this type of problem, so I'm asking here. Or maybe there's a way to change an option within Firefox to accomplish this?

When you inspect a element and go to the box model and hover/click on the different regions of the box model it shows what region the color indicates, for example content, padding,border etc. In Firefox 37.0.1 the text which show the name of the region is White, it is completely illegible and impossible to read. Why would you make the text white? Please revert the change.
