Was checking what new is there to tweak in latest Firefox 83 and I stumbled upon a tweak I was looking for ages and couldn’t find. And now I tripped over it by chance 🙂
I’ve included new “Disable Developer Tools” option under “Browser Components” tweaks section.
What this tweak does is the following:
- Disables F12 key shortcut for quick access to Developer Tools panel
- Disables Developer Tools in Menu Bar
- Disables Developer Tools in right click context menu
The logic behind this is that large majority of users will NEVER need any of these tools, yet they are just there, making clutter by being present in right click context menu all the time or accidentally pressing F12 and the panel pops up.
I have also included this option into “One Click Configuration” so this component gets disabled when using this feature to quickly configure browser. And of course into Restore Default Settings feature.
