full system/setup/case info

The problem

I was trying to hack together some code in the Stylish editor changing the look of Firefox. I was using the Firefox built-in 'Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I' Inspector along doing this, not the DOM Inspector add-on. Then something happened!

I now have a totally blank page/Fx. I can right-click the page and go 'View Page Info', it says "about:blank" as the location.

In that window I can't do much or open any new tabs. Apart from the 'View Page Info' I also went Ctrl+N and got a new window. This window seems somewhat normal, though not everything works.

Thing is, I haven't closed and restarted the browser yet because I was quite happy with the code I had managed to produce. I'm wondering if there is a way to get it back without redoing all the steps and research.

I haven't restarted the browser yet as I'm not sure that Stylish/Fx will restore a tab with that code in it.

Can I somehow see all the currently custom rules being applied to Fx and then filter away the rules of saved userstyles and add-ons, to get the code I was working on?

Are there some temporary file where it's stored? Is it in RAM, how can I get to it?

Would be quite an interesting feat if this was accomplished. So there's a challenge for you ;)! Up for it? Accepted? Impossible?

Do you think Fx/Stylish restores the code if I restart Fx? Anything I can do before restarting to make it do so? Is there nothing I can do to save/rescue/get the code back?

Only option is restarting and trying/starting all over again?

Documentation and resources

Currently using Windows 8.1 64-bit Firefox Developer Edition 42.0a2 it's a Firefox Portable instance. So it's a Firefox 32-bit instance. about:buildconfig says:

Built from https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-aurora/rev/48cce9628816

At some point I was asked about E10s/Electrolysis and choose to turn it on.

I've posted two screenshots of two websites that offer signing in with facebook: travelpony.com and goodreads.com. One screenshot depicts how the login page should look like (taken from internet explorer) and the other shows the current state of affairs in my firefox browser.

I can no longer use Nowtv.com. A message comes on saying that Microsoft's Silverlight program may be corrupted, please fix now. I have gone through all the trouble-shooting steps and run Microsoft's own Fix-it tool for Silverlight, and scanned the PC for corrupt files, still no joy! Is anybody experiencing the same problem with Firefox? I'm running Windows 8.1. Any tips and resolutions would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I have several addons/extensions. Every day or 2 I have to confirm each of them. It takes a long time as is very irritating - it stops me working. I need firefox just to enable them without user intervention. If there are risks I took them into account when choosing the addon - no need to recheck!! See attached image.
