How to avoid seeing page source using Firefox button > Web Developer > View Page Source

I want to hide my page source from users. I have disabled Ctrl+A, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+U. I disabled right click also. Now i want to protect my page source from Firefox->Tools-> Web Developer->page source option. Is it possible?

hello, no it won't be possible to "hide" the source code of a page, this kind of openness is just part of how the web works. users with technical knowledge will also have the possibility to work around your right-click and key-combination restrictions...

Thanks for your answer.By using the source page they can download the image and contents. So there is no use of disabling right click and Ctrl+C.... etc. Is it any other way to hide my page source? Could you please help me?

Note that you can easily see the page source by prefixing an URL with the view_source: protocol.

Note that you can save images via "Tools > Page Info > Media", even images that are 'hidden' via a transparent image on top of them.
