Hi, I really love everything about Firefox Developer Edition, except the JSON viewer. I'm used to looking at plain formatted JSON like the JSON Formatter plugin provide. But, even thought I have installed JSON Formatter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/json-formatter/?src=recommended), it only shows this tree/table-ish viewer that comes with Firefox Developer Edition. Is there any way to disable this feature and use a plugin for this, just as in Firefox ?

I'm currently on 73.0b5 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I'm trying to use the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button from the "About" screen to update the browser. This normally works but today, it's having problems and I suspect it's due to our corporate policies being changed around.

I'm going to submit a request to our enterprise idiot to have this fixed in their whitelists, etc. but before I can do that, I need to know what kinds of permissions to request. What's responsible for the update process and what folders need to have which permissions for this to work?

Because right now, pressing the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button results in Firefox downloading the update but when it tries to install it, it fails with the "Update failed. Download the latest version" message in the "About" screen (when it was working last week without a single hitch).

According to my about:support details, I'm seeing the following:

- Update Folder: C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\<Long String> - Application Binary: C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe - Profile Folder: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<string>.dev-edition-default - Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall are all governed by McAfee Endpoint Security (which hasn't been an issue in the past).

I suspect that all of this is due to our enterprise guys modifying the permissions that our "elevated permissions" has... So once I have a better understanding of what things need which permissions, I'll be able to request that the elevated permissions be modified accordingly.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It's a shame we don't have logs that clearly explain what folders or files lack whatever permissions to better understand bottlenecks like this. Maybe we do have that and I'm just not aware of it?

After all recent updates (including the one today 1/29/20) a new window opens informing me that settings for Ad Block Plus for Firefox have been deleted. I get a message which states, in part "It seems that an issue caused all filters to be removed and we were unable to restore a backup. Therefore we had to reset your filters and Acceptable Ads settings."

Firefox is my favourite browser, but it has some problems. Although the team managed to fix memory leak issues with BigInt in js, but the performance is 3x slower than NodeJS compared to the latest spidermonkey (75.0b6).

To test out, I have created a simple pi calculator (open source), the website is: http://picalc.rf.gd/

The source code can be found on github, or just by clicking the "View Page Source". It seems impossible to get past 4,000 digits of Pi in firefox but in chromium I can calculate about 10,000 digits in the time firefox does 4,000 digits.

Previously, in the earlier versions (73 I guess), the memory went all the way up to 4 gigabytes while trying to calculate 5,000 digits, it's now (my current firefox version is 75.0b4, developer edition).

For the benchmarks, I have also tried NodeJS and Firefox's Spidermonkey.

screen says: The address wasn't understood.

Foxfire doesn't now how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn't associated with any programs or is not allowed in this context.

You might need to install other software to open this address.

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition while developing a website and that frequently involves making a change on the backend and refreshing the page to look at my changes. For some reason, however, I absolutely cannot get firefox to consistently reload the page completely FRESH and I cannot see changes that I have made unless I open the page in a completely new browser such as chrome/edge.

This is what I've tried:

Disable HTTP Cache (when toolbox is open) Shift-f5 ctrl-shift-r network.http.use-cache - set to false browser.cache.disk.enable and browser.cache.memory.enable - both set to false

Nothing seems to be working and I'm about to tear my hair out here. Is there anything else I can look at to confirm that these are not working? I've literally removed all my jQuery from a script block and it is all still visible. I can then open my page in Edge and the script block is empty.

Hello. How do I remove the "remove extension" button from the context menu I don't want my any of my apps deleted in any way, shape, or form, other than using "Ctrl+Shift+A" to access the add-ons menu. In case you are wondering what add-ons I want to protect "LeechBlock" and an obscure add-on called "eScan Web Blocker."

Can anyone help me?

Hello,

I am trying to download Firefox source code. I tried the simplest option offered to me : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Using_the_VM But the link to the Virtual Machine does not work. Do you know if the site will be back soon or will I have to search for another website offering this VM ?

I get that I need to have certain addons only for the developer Version, but I've been having difficulty keeping up with what I need for one and ones that meet my specific needs otherwise. I can only type using one finger at a time due to my autism causing poor coordination. I've been having trouble keeping my gmail synced up in places and it's the mail one I use. But I can't sync my password to different devices as it always asks for a password I haven't used before. I am happy to keep the addons proper on the developer version, and not use it for anything until I ca get it set up without having to re-sync everything. Do you have a suggestion for limited motor ability?

hello,

What's a pity with this video overlay option is that the subtitle does not accompany the overlay but remains in the original page.

What would be interesting is to have the subtitle accompanying the detached window.

Do you think it's feasible to recover both the video and the subtitle in the main window?
