Disable Popup Auto-Hide not working on Firefox 90.0 64 bit under Ubuntu 20.04
I am unable to find the menu option under "Web Developer Tools" -> "..." drop down menu as described at the below page.
Also manually changing the "about:config" properties related to "devtools.popup.disable_autohide" and "ui.popup.disable_autohide" appear to have no effect at stopping html popups from being hidden when selecting the web developer tools window.
Is anyone else able to make this work?
I found the following curious commit which makes it sound like it may have been disabled on purpose, but I'm uncertain.

I just want to be clear based on what I've read online I was under the impression this could be used when debugging websites to stop website popups from disappearing when you change to the inspector in Web Developer Tools. It however is appearing like there is some confusion about if this tool is supposed to only apply for plugin debugging or also websites. I'm not sure I really understand the end decision though.
It looks like based on this discussion pre version 60 it also worked for websites and then after version 60 it only worked for plugins? Although I'm not entirely clear.
