Something crazy just started happening a few hours ago and I have no clue what is causing it.

When a page is loaded it is coming up as a tiny 3"x6" window (or thereabouts).
In addition I noticed near the top of the screen (but below FF's folders) is the following:

Responsive 1314 x 816 (screen rotation icon) DPR: 1 No throttling (hand icon)

Can someone please explain what is going on?

That means that you have opened the page in responsive design mode (RDM).

Ahh OK.
Thanks Dick.

I'm not sure how I entered that mode. :)

OK I'm not quite there yet.
When I used the hotkeys: Ctrl-Shft-M I was able to release the mode.

But I opened a few more tabs and it works in some but not all !!!

Is there a way to disable it permanently?

(I wonder what telemetry tells them regarding the usage of RDM?
I wonder how many "normal" users know of, much less have ever used it?
I didn't know.
And yet, they assign a hotkey for that action.
Go figure?

I can see for a #dev version, or if there were some Pref to disable it... ?

I'm not sure, but Ctrl+Shift+M, might be a New Message hotkey in Thunderbird?
So if you use TB & you use FF...)


This is old, so I don't know if still accurate, You can only disable access to all developer tools.?


(As it is, I'm apt to mix up Ctrl+Shift+B between SeaMonkey - open Private Window, & FF - toggle Bookmarks Toolbar.)
Fire 750, bring back 250.
