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.

This may be a windows issue, but maybe Firefox can help being it is hard to get windows help. I used to be able to see my pictures from the pictures library in windows. But now when I access my pictures I see only icons for those pictures. Yes, I can see the picture when I click on a given icon, but I used to be able to see all the pictures, which I have many, when I just accessed my pictures and not the icons only. I can't figure out a way to get my picture viewing back when I access my pictures from the "my computer" portal and then access my picture library. Sort of frustrating when I want to see a certain picture and all I see are icons. Can someone help? Thank you.

Whilst debugging an Angular 5 app, I have noticed that when I attempt to step on from a breakpoint with the righthand-side panels collapsed, the debugger refuses to continue processing the code.

Opening the rhs panels and attempting to step on (continue) works as expected.

This appears to be a bug in the debugger.

I am debugging an Angular 5 app in Firefox DE, but the page load is very slow when debugging.

I have blackboxed a number of scripts, e.g. common.chunk.js, polyfils.bundle.js and more besides, but still slow.

I notice that the sources panel, after the delay, updates to include "Angular", so I am assuming that the delay is likely there. I have expendanded that folder and it naturally contains a great many files.

Is there a way of blackboxing these too, without individually selecting them? Or are there other tips for speeding up/skipping files when debugging an Angular application?

Thanks, Victor

Hi All,

I'm trying to make tweaks to the style (CSS) of my website's dropdown navigation menu. I can mouse over the navmenu, right-click on the area I wish to edit, and select 'Inspect Element'. The problem is, as soon as I move the cursor away, the drop down menu obviously goes away. I know there is a way to keep the dropdown menu 'down', but I don't know how. I'm not a developer, so my knowledge of the developer console is limited.

My website is www.gregsgraphics.com

Thanks is advance.
