A feature for editing PDF files has recently been added to the released code. I cannot find comprehensive documentation for it. If such exists, a pointer would be appreciated.

Here is the specific problem with which I am struggling. I am marking up a converted web page (Waze) with the tool with the pencil icon. That starts out OK. However, after a while, it gets into a mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my previous markings. Once a box has been selected all I can do is move the content or delete it. I do not want to do that. I want to make new marks nearby. It seems to be impossible. The only way I have managed to get around the problem is to save the PDF to a file and then reload it. But that only lasts for a while until it gets back into the mode in which it thinks I am trying to select some of my new marks.

I don't know what is getting it into the selection mode or how to get out once there. There are no clues in the menu. I could use the mode at times for removing marks, so I do also want to know how to get into it.

Help would be much appreciated.

My Firefox refuses to load MetaCPAN's OpenSearch.xml file, even though I can access it without problems.

So this got me thinking, as Opensearch files are relatively easy to write, is it possible to import my own opensearch.xml into Firefox?

If it's impossible, I'll submit a ticket to bugzil.la.

Someone broke into my firefox. A ex friends through into my face stuff she could only know if she or someone broke into my firefox history.

I deleted firefox browser on both my android and pc's and am brokenhearted because I checked it and it brought back memories going back to 2011.

I want this person who did this for her. The broke into my google, laptop, pc. She's pretty and rediculuos manipulitieve.

I've tried tech guys, computer stores, web sites. They want me delete everything and start over. I don't want to loose decades of memories. I have a vpn and they keep breaking into my phone and pc's.

Is there a goverment contractor worker that does this stuff on the side? I want to find them. I bought Audibles and Kindles on dark web to see if anyone there can help, and will read for next 10 years if I have to in order to find them. Need suggestion.

Every time I want to reload this file to change or debug something, I have to close all my browers windows at once, reopen FireFox, and restore my previous session just to save my tabs. It's growing so exhausting that it's making me want to switch browsers. Is there any way around this?

And if you want more information about modifying FireFox policies, here are two links: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customizing-firefox-using-policiesjson https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates#windows-gpo-61
