Shortcut key for bookmark toolbar in Firefox - Super User |
This suggests using the Hide BookmarksBar extension, which used to be a great option, but this no longer works in the era of WebExtensions.

Bookmark Toolbar Menu Button – Add-ons for Firefox
Show the contents of the Bookmarks Toolbar in a drop down menu. This compresses the bookmark menu into one button that you can put on any toolbar you want to.

Popups (like bookmarklets) get blocked, though, and there's no way to confirm the popup warning banner, because the page gets reloaded immediately, at least for the Pinboard bookmarklet.

Firefox 3 and Self-Signed Certs |
Leaving aside the fact that many people who use this model for SSH don't bother to do 1) in practice but just say "OK" and hope, it is our assertion that no-one has yet come up with a UI that makes this model of crypto (known as Key Continuity Management - KCM - or "the SSH model") understandable to Joe Public. You can't provide him with a string of hex characters and expect it to read it over the phone to his bank. What he does instead is just click "OK", which might as well be labelled "Yeah, Whatever", and hopes for the best. The same thing happens when he gets "key changed!" warnings, even scary ones.

The first important thing to note about this model is that key changes are an expected part of life. No-one does or should use the same key for ever, and key compromise or discovered weakness means that keys change. So the user is going to get a series of alerts over time, some of which indicate an OK condition, and some of which indicate a dangerous condition. It is our assertion that no UI can navigate Joe through this complexity in a safe way.

Usability research tells us that repeated security dialogs and warnings habituate users into just clicking "OK" - it's the "Yeah, Whatever" thing again. If that dialog mostly indicates a benign condition but occasionally indicates a serious one, then the problem is compounded. This happens no matter what the dialog says. UI designers can work on the wording for a year, but whatever it is, it'll eventually just get ignored.

However, running your own CA has its own hidden costs - and you normally discover them after a key compromise when you have to update all the certificates at once, and everyone has to learn a lot about crypto really quickly. A simpler solution is just to get in touch with StartCom, or budget for a few expenditures of $14.95 or whatever, and use the same public CA system everyone else does.

api token gets lost when deleting browser history · Issue #1 · lostsnow/pinboard-firefox · GitHub
I had to uncheck "Clear history when Nightly closes" and just select (in the cookies section) "Keep until: I close Nightly" instead. This keeps the cookies that you've made exceptions for.

Also, there's this bug ( that will automatically clear all local storage for WebExtensions--due to an overzealous DELETE FROM, I guess--if you check "Offline Website Data" under "Clear history when Nightly closes."

NB: It looks like the "Clear history when Nightly closes" deletes ALL cookies, even if you made exceptions for them under the settings for cookies. Kind of confusing.

Content Security Policy |

As made clear by the CSP spec, browser bookmarklets shouldn't be affected by CSP.

Enforcing a CSP policy should not interfere with the operation of user-supplied scripts such as third-party user-agent add-ons and JavaScript bookmarklets.

Whenever the user agent would execute script contained in a javascript URI, instead the user agent must not execute the script. (The user agent should execute script contained in "bookmarklets" even when enforcing this restriction.)

But, none of the browsers get this correct. All cause CSP violations and prevent the bookmarklet from functioning.

Though its highly discouraged, you can disable CSP in Firefox as a temporary workaround. Open up about:config and set security.csp.enable to false.

It's All Text! :: Add-ons for Firefox
On Linux, you'll need this somewhere:
set -eu
exec /usr/bin/gvim --nofork "$@"

On a Mac, just make '/usr/bin/gvim' into '/usr/local/bin/mvim' instead, assuming that you have MacVim installed, and that's where you put the command-line binary.

Choose that as your editor in the preferences (good luck trying to select it from the file picker; better to copy and paste the full pathname into the text box).

Quick Locale Switcher :: Add-ons for Firefox
Used to be a very good and almost essential add-on... However, it seems that the developers turned it into an adware / spyware during March, 2013. Developer's site (ppclick) seems to be a scam or ad-site as well – when it is working. The site has always been an advertiser one according to the archives. It is recommended to stay away from this add-on and the developer's website as well. Beware and do not install, but rather tweak and update some (clean) old version of the add-on for yourself.

css - CSS3 :after pseudo element with input - Stack Overflow
I've also thought that the same thing would be useful, but alas, the simplest way I have been able to get the before/after pseudo elements to work reliably is by wrapping the input in a SPAN tag and applying a class to that.

css3 - SVG as data URI not rendering - Stack Overflow
Escaping *only* the '#' characters didn't work, but escaping *everything* after the "data:image/svg+xml;utf8," *did. Chrome was fine with it. This is in reference to 'data-uri' SVG images that are used in the "VanillaJS" TodoMVC project.
You haven't escaped the '#' characters in the url() syntax. And it's 'viewBox' not 'viewbox'.

Firefox had a bug that was fixed in FF6. A hash(#) in the Data URI source will break the image.

A # in the content needs to be escaped as %23.
