https://www.dropbox.com/s/zagipygmsa8svgd/oIS4QAKxRh.mp4?dl=0

whenever you select for it to show a grid, and a ruler and when you decide to refresh or your code refreshes; those settings are lost. the behavior is a bit unstable however you can clearly see it happening in the video i recorded.

this makes the firefox developer tools completely unusable, i shouldn't have to pick up my mouse and click on the ruler and grid+grid options anytime i refresh. i already did that once, it should be kept on until i decide that i don't want that anymore.

i end up saving and switching back and forth between the editor and the browser probably 2-3 times a minute, that's a lot of extra and unnecessary clicks i will have to spend on reenabling my preferences

This isn't as much as a question as this is an idea to consider.

What I'm about to bring up are several ideas that could make the Firefox Marketplace awesome, a real alternative to the Chrome Web Store, because frankly enough (don't get me wrong, I love Firefox and its marketplace), a lot of the apps are Firefox OS only and even those aren't too great. Here are some ideas to make it up-to-par with its competitors:

Firefox OS Background Emulation Push for PC Developers Third-Party Hosted Web App Links

FIREFOX OS BACKGROUND EMULATION:

A lot of apps are mainly, well, links to web apps that could definitely run on a PC. A lot of the other apps can be run in an emulator (which should be built-in, but in the background) that opens whenever one of these Firefox OS-specific apps is opened. The emulator could run in the background, and these apps would run in a window without any of the complexity or fake hardware buttons that the current emulators have. If this feature was standard, that would be great.

Now the Firefox Marketplace could seriously compete with the Chrome OS Web Store if it's app selection was bigger, and a great place to start is the already existing Firefox OS apps.

PUSH FOR PC DEVELOPERS:

Mobile Firefox OS apps are really being pushed. That isn't a bad thing (at all!!!) but if there was an equal amount of push for PC apps, we could see a bigger app store.

I mean, these are web apps! There is very little reason that you can develop an app for mobile and NOT tick the little box that puts the app on PCs. Easy fix. And besides, with the emulation feature there is literally no reason to NOT export to PC unless you have a grudge or something.

THIRD-PARTY HOSTED WEB APP LINKS

This one will be trickier to start off, but eventually it could be really good.

A lot of major companies have powerful online apps, but do not want to make an app for the Firefox Marketplace. Why? "Because there are not enough apps". This is circular reasoning. They don't want to make an app because other people don't want to make an app because other people..... it doesn't go anywhere.

So, if uploading nothing but a .manifest file that featured a link to an app accompanied by some basic information by a third-party developer is legally acceptable, I think it should be approved. Actually, the act of uploading nothing but a link to a site. Not like a hosted app, because that requires a specific .manifest file in the actual webpage code, and isn't featured in the actual Firefox Marketplace.

Thanks for reading so far, and I hope I've made a difference for Firefox and it's marketplace ;D !!!

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.

First of all firefox is my favorite and default browser for a long time now in the windows OS. And I'd like to be able to adjust the colors of the html5 videos, as I can with internet explorer. Is something like this under consideration to be added in a future build? Because this lack of color settings is the only reason, I'm still using flash to play videos in youtube and other sites

In the "Applications" settings, one of the mime-type is wrong : "application/x-zip" that contains quotes. Thoses quotes cause some file upload to fail (the file mime type in the File api is wrong `e.target.files[0].type` in a file upload field event has the value ""application/x-zip"").

Any idea where this is made ? by a plugin ? by the system ? etc. I'm in FF38 Linux.

Hi,

i have just been playing around with the App-maker on Mozilla.

i created a very simple tapping app that counts up etc and finishes on a page.

but when i was done i played with some other buttons to see what they did, i added the channel gate widget. Now at the bottom of my first page is the channel gate widget and i cannot remove it. its really frustrating, A) i have no idea what it does, i removed some of the channels so there is only A now. yet i cant seem to remove the channel gate widget entirely.

any help would be great. (see attached image to see what i mean)

Hi, I am using html button print tiff image. When I click on "Print" button new window gets opened. Below is the code

       win.document.write('<style>body { font-family: Verdana; font-size: 10pt; }</style>');
        win.document.html(printThis);
        win.document.write('');
       win.document.close();
       win.print();
       win.close();

this code do not show any image on new window. If I replace "printThis" as below

         var printThis = '<embed id="pre" access="4" src="' + imgName + '" type="image/tiff" width="100%" />';

It will show me image but, If I print the page then it will do not print anything.

I am using AlternaTIFF to show tiff images. please suggest me solution for this. I am not getting answer on this.

I am a web developer working in PHP, Yii, and jquery on an Oracle VM VirtualBox . So I was building a script that was meant to run an upload to an ftp server. Prior to designing the script to do the upload, I had it downloading the finished file(XML) to my browser. Once the script was ready to begin the FTP upload, I changed the code to do so. I ran a test and everything went fine. At that point, I stopped working on the code to wait for a response on the test FTP file. So I began to work on a separate project when I noticed the log I had up just triggered another FTP upload. I wasn't in the application at the time. Thinking it was me, I reset the browser and apache to be safe. I continued working on my separate project, when again, the FTP was triggered(projects were not even remotely related, and were in different db's). At the end of the day, there were a couple random triggers of the script(thankfully we were uploading to a test ftp server). So I reboot the computer before I left for the day. Come back after the weekend and it is still occurring. Finally I noticed, while tracking the log, that it went off when I opened a new tab in FireFox. I tried 2 more times just to confirm that was the trigger. Cleared browser cache/history and it stopped. It was as if the new tab was attempting to trigger the previous URL when opening. Has anyone ever seen this happen before and is there a way to prevent it? The new tabs in my browser are set to the default blank Firefox page. Addons include Greasemonkey, firebug, xdebug, and Web Developer. Code has no javascript, jquery, or ajax(other than what Yii may automatically include).

This I believe is a very specific problem not caused by anything on the web browser or the website itself but likely a result of clashing security protocols between the two. I use GoDaddy Website Builder to edit and build my business website and for some reason, changes made to the text within the website do not save (Editing Pictures and Titles does work however) and when I edit text in other browsers (IE or Chrome), it works just fine. I'd love to keep using FireFox (its faster and and in my personal opinion more secure) but I can't if the changes I make will not appear on the website. Any ideas why this might be happening?

Open an excel document, copy a table, say a 2*3 table holding 1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6. Go to the http://jsfiddle.net/ThinkingStiff/AbKTQ/. Paste the content into the text field which contains "I look like a textarea". Press F12 and then check the html of that control, you will see the content in the attached image: Under the div, there is no table element but only the colgroup and tbody which are sub elements of the table.

Since table contains the format information, it should be available after paste operation. Both IE and Chrome can handle this correctly. Hope Firefox can do the same.

Both 38 and 39 have the same problem.

I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?
