Re-enabling Firefox Developer Tools

Some employers will disable Firefox developer tools via policy files.

To re-enable developer tools, perform the following steps:

  1. Run regedit
  2. Search for key: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox
  3. Set key DisableDeveloperTools to 0

The instructions below show how you can programmatically change your registry.

If the registry entry you are going to change is already in the registry, the simplest way to create a *.reg file that changes the registry entry as you need it is as follows:

Open Regedit
Locate the registry folder right above the registry key you are going to change in the treeview on the left.
Right-click the folder and select “Export”.
Open the file you just exported with notepad and delete anything apart from the first line (“Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00” or similar), the folder name ( [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Intuit\QBWebConnector] in your case) and the name value pair for the key you would like to change
Edit the value you would like to change appropriately and save the file. In your case you should end up with the following *.reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



Double-clicking the file and confirming the security warning(s) will perform the changes on your registry.

Or, in a batchfile, you can silently import the registry file via “REGEDIT /S pathname”

Be careful with the registry since you might otherwise wreck your windows installation.
