IS there any option in firefox dev edition to make inspect element window is always appear while using it in non full screen mode so that we can swipe up and down it very easily. This would help the dev community from pressing the keys to open it.

Like example in the PFA. See on the bottom of the firefox you see swiped down dev tools

Website logon credentials are being reset after the use of the reload function - requiring the user to log back in to the comments section after each reload of the web page. In particular, credentials for DISCUS, which is very popular "comment" software used by many websites, is unable to maintain the users credentials after a reload...requiring the user to log back in each time. More info on this software is at https://disqus.com. NOTE: Addons have not changed since I was on 68.0.1 where this problem was not observed.

I have a normally used Windows 10 PC that I consider my standard configuration for Firefox. I WILL CALL IT PC A. I have another, rarely used PC which I WILL CALL B. The Firefox configuration on PC B is often not as up to date as PC A and may have old and outdated Add-ons, bookmarks, and tool bar configurations. When I bring up PC B and start Firefox, it will quickly start the syncing process (since I can no longer log off of Firefox - a very bad idea, by the way). Whether the sync starts immediately or not, how do I specify that PC B will always sync to PC A's profile and not try to update PC A with its old and invalid configuration?

How To Nullify Xul.dll and Prevent Browser Overides by This File?

[ Windows 7, x64 - Firefox Quantum 69.0b14 ]

I have been trying to make a permanent modification of prefs.js, specifically changing browser.launcherprocess.enabled to false because it is incredibly annoying not being able to drag bookmarks to a folder (whatever the security implications of such), but I cannot make the change stick because it is overidden by xul.dll whenever I restart my machine.

I had hoped to re-code xul.dll, but this does not appeart to be possible, as it seems that xul.dll is proprietary; so I am wondering if anyone can suggest something (other than using a browser which does force options on you whether you like it or not) or if there is a legacy version of xul.dll (and associated signature file) that can be used instead?

Until recently, I could use the tab key to navigate on websites. Suddenly, the tab key stopped working partially:

  • When a website has an input field or a button, using the tab key reaches these fields and afterwards cycles through the UI of Firefox. Links on the website are not accessed by the tab key.
  • When a website has no inputs or buttons and only links, the tab key never enters the websites.

I’m using the Firefox Developer Edition 69.0b14 (64-bit) on macOS 10.14.6. Is there something wrong with my installation? Is there something accidentally turned off I need to turn on again?

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

For example if I go to https://jsfiddle.net/01tpr8sd/, a dialogue will pop up asking me which application I'd like to use to handle this link, while it should have triggered the internal U2F implementation. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode and resetting values that look relevant in about:config but neither of them helped.

It doesn't happen if I create a fresh new profile though, but I really want to avoid the hassle of backing up all the extension configurations... Please help, thanks a lot.

I set up two Windows accounts on my Windows 10 and synced the passwords and settings in only one account. To my surprise, when I login in the second account, every login and password was there without the master password. This means that any one using that account can see my password.

I think this is a really serious security hole and Firefox should fix it as soon as possible.

running firefox dev ed rev 69.0b14

i run prestashop ecommerce on a hosting server. but when i use admin on my PC, i have an application that displays 2 sets of date/time, ie start and end.

however the 1st displayed time shows it correctly ie 26/08/2019 00:00 but the 2nd displayed time it is shown as 1566860340

the coding that generates this seems to be correct, check attached image.

any ideas please, as when I use any other browser it displays date and time correctly.

This broke after I installed the beta version of firefox 69. I tried deleting firefox and reinstalling (with the stable 69 version that was just released) but I still can't pick up the bookmark folders. Moving and selecting things within the folders is working, I just can't grab them off the toolbar and can only click to open them.

I have another laptop running exactly the same configuration of themes and addons that I didn't try the beta on, and that's updated to 69 and is working just fine.

Prior to FF 69, I could zoom to HUGE font sizes in Reader Mode. As a user with low vision (macular degeneration) this was very helpful. However, in FF69, zooming is extremely limited. The maximum font size appears to be about 24 point - which is next to useless for those with low vision. Is there any way this can be fixed? I tried the Reader addon, but its zoom isn't much better.

Firefox says at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-update-add-ons, "Check for Updates: Allows you to check for any updates to your add-ons manually. If there is an update available, you have the option to choose to update it now or later." I don't see that option. I can install all updates now or not. How can I install selectively? And (since Firefox does not seem to reveal the versions of the add-ons I'm using), how can I be sure whether a particular add-on I'm using is already up-to-date?
