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 ?

For example, the Fox News website used to put banner at the bottom of the page asking me to disable ad blocker but now there is no banner but the ring in the center of the active screen that usually circulates until I get sound continues to circulate and I never get any sound. When I turn uBlock off, I get sound and millions of ads. I am running windows 10.

Transfering user profile from 60.7 ESR to 72.0.1 automatically

Hello All, I work for an organization and we are trying to upgrade from 60.7 ESR to 72.0.1 using a automated process. In doing so, I am having trouble having firefox use the current user profile in 60.7 and having firefox 72.0.1 defaulting to that same profile upon initial launch after installation. Instead, the new firefox creates a new profile and uses that instead of using the old profile. So my question is: is there a way to force firefox to use the old profile prior to installing FF 72? If not, is there a way to suppress the creation of a new profile so it is never created in the first place?

Firefox 72 causes Add-Ons to stop running while still enabled

Firefox 72.0.1 and 72.0.2 have the same issue, so the latest release did not solve it. My add-ons all stop working, or seem to time out somehow, while still showing as enabled. Removing and then "Undo Remove" of the add-ons restarts this new timeout clock/fixes the problem, but it's extremely frustrating and ineffective.

  • This did not happen prior to 72.0.1.
  • The add-ons do retain my settings even while timed out/stopped/somehow broken, so they are not actually disabled during these outages.
  • This affects all add-ons, so it is not a problem with any one specific add-on.

I used Refresh and now realize my add-ons, extensions and theme have disappeared. There doesn't appear to be any way to add them back. I've followed the guidelines t\suggesting to copy from the Old Firefox Data folder into the current local folders but it made absolutely no difference. I can't use Firefox in this state. Is there some way to return to the version I had an hour ago.

distinction would be OK - but bright blue - at least give the option to change the color. It hurts my eyes. I don't really understand anymore why everytime there is an update, more and more customizations are eliviated. Maybe it's finally time to leave Mozilla. Nothing but pain since a long time.

This may not mean much to the mozilla crew - but it is utter annoyance to me and time consuming to "fix" after every update.I look at that screen all day, every day, and - yes, I dare to customize it so it is easier for me to work. Just one example, and I am not alone at this: every time after an update the tab bar is moved up, which does not make sense to people that use it all day long. The 71. update was even worse, not even a space left for it anymore. Resulting again, as always go back to chrome css, trying to get the stuff back one works with all the time.

It just by now is too cumbersome to already know that something will again brake or be eliminated with the next update. I have weathered mozilla since it's inception. But am just tired of always having to adjust the same things, yet needing a different css line again.

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.

Ad-ons Permission - Access your data for all websites - Concerns, elaboration required

Please pardon my ignorance regarding this topic, but I cannot help having several questions after having read Firefox "Permission request messages for Firefox extensions"… (read more)

Please pardon my ignorance regarding this topic, but I cannot help having several questions after having read Firefox "Permission request messages for Firefox extensions" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions#w_access-your-data-for-all-websites), particularly "Access your data for all websites" Permission:

"The extension can read the content of any web page you visit as well as data you enter into those web pages, such as usernames and passwords." -Scary!

Note: These questions are not related to a particular extension and/or developer, these are merely questions regarding all extensions requiring "Access your data for all websites" Permission. Any and all references made to any particular extension in this thread are for the sole purposes to facilitate discussion and/or visualization, and Not to be construed in any negative manner on my part. I am merely seeking clarification regarding security concerns I and/or others may have in the future and perhaps aid browser development team, the community and extension developers to improve its security documentation and/or functions.

Questions:

1. Does that mean said extensions can read the content of any and "ALL" web page you visit as well as data you enter into those web pages, such as usernames and passwords "EVER" visited in the past and in the future?

2. Regardless whether or not such extensions disabled?

3. Regardless whether or not web page is open and/or sign-in?

4. Regardless if a Firefox Login "Master Password" is being used?

5. Other than not using such extensions, what precautions users can take to minimize/eliminate such security breaches?

6. How can such extensions have a Firefox "Recommended" designation?

7. Why "some" such extensions opt to collect contributions "outside" Mozilla's Add-ons extension's landing page? Could that be used to raise a suspicious concerns?

8. Can extensions change their current permissions to a higher level from their initial installation via an user requested update performed from within Firefox's Extensions utility without the users knowledge?

9. How can users discern when extensions has a legitimate need for "Access your data for all websites" permission?

10. Do download extensions (and others) need "Access your data for all websites" permission along, and if so why (...is it due to browser technical limitation)?

11. Would it be possible for Mozilla's Add-ons extension's landing page to display whether or not "Access your data for all websites" is necessary and why?

These concerns came up when searching for a YouTube download extension.

Example: "Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express" by Dishita (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-download/?src=search)


Apologies for lengthy questions. Thank you!

PS: Quick response would be appreciated.
