I want to see a response in a formated/pretty way to check for errors on my work. According to this link https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/devtools-user/network_monitor/request_details/index.html#network-monitor-request-details-response-tab it should be possible to do so, clicking a button which formats the response in the network part of the devtools, however this button does not exist on my devtools. In chrome there is the preview tab that shows the response in the way I need, and also as the button to format the response in the response tab. Is it a bug on my end? If not, why is it that way?

I have tried every troubleshooting from the other answers available on the support website but whenever I am trying to login, it shows a black screen and I also unregistered Twitter from about:serviceworkers but still nothing, I also cannot upload the screenshot here it just says uploading and nothing else. Images are not uploading even from other devices.

Here is one of the errors showing on the console: Cross-Origin Request Blocked

Update: this issue was because of a filter from uBlock's list. Fixed now. I am not sure how to close my question.

Hi,

I have Firefox 102 ESR in Debian 11 (LXC in Chrome OS). It is the en_US version with Czech spell checking dictionary installed as an add-on. I can switch the spell checker from English to Czech in ordinary text areas by accessing the context menu via a right mouse click.

However, I'm using a proprietary e-commerce system (Shoptet) with a WYSIWIG editor that has its own context menu, overriding the default one in the browser. I can't switch the language for that reason. Is there a way to switch the spell checker language for a particular text area without access to the context menu? Thank you very much.

Cannot check "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

Hello,

Until recently, I was able to have Firefox automatically clear all my cookies at the end of a session, EXCEPT for the cookies for websites that I had specified. This was possible by:

  • Checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data`
  • Setting the websties that I would like to keep cookies for, under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage exceptions`

Now, I simply can no longer use this feature. If I try checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option, then quitting Firefox, it seems to insist on unchecking the box, then changing another section of my privacy settings. Namely the `Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes` section becomes checked, and inside, `Cookies` is marked as something to be cleared at the end of each session. This is unhelpful, because checking the box here means that any exceptions I set in the aforementioned section is not respected, and ALL cookies are deleted.

Am I doing something wrong? If there is a way to get it back to how it used to behave, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Extensions and Addons Affecting YouTube Display

I have an issue where AdBlocker Ultimate, Plus or Free and uBlock Origin and Ghostery are causing an undesired effect on YouTube's display of videos on it's Home page. I would like to know where to report issues regarding extensions and add-ons. If any of the above extensions are enabled then the Home page for YouTube is missing the video in either the #1 position or the #4 position in the top row. (See screenshot). I've used these extensions for years on the same system and have made no changes. Suddenly, for about a month the problem has been occurring. I have another identical system with the same extensions and have no issues. I use the following extensions along with the ones mentioned above. New Tab Override and DuckDuckGo and they have no interplay in with the issue I'm having. I've gone through an exhaustive process of disabling each one and trying various combinations of them and determined that the culprits are AdBlocker Ultimate, Plus or Free and uBlock Origin and Ghostery. Ghostery alone removes the video in the #1 position. But, if either of the other four are loaded with or without Ghostery then the video in #4 position is missing. Any help in resolving the issure would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

On MacOS (going back a long time) there is a very convenient feature (In Settings ⇒ Keyboards ⇒ Text) for "text substitution" or, as it appears in other applications' "Edit" Menus, under "Subtitutions", "Text Replacement".

For example, this lets me type, say (/), and have a ✔️ appear, or (r) for ®.

It may seem minor, and it is, but it's also a great time-saver when you have to do the same non-keyboard characters a lot.

This appears to be a simple thing to enable in MacOS applications. Where would I file a feature request for this?

(There have been at least 3 identical requests in the past 2 years, all archived.)
