ViewAbout

Author(s):



A Mozilla Firefox / Thunderbird add-on to open up available about: dialogs, including those activated by other extensions.

ViewAbout will not be ported to WebExtensions once Firefox 57 is released, because:

* about: dialogs such as about:config, about:addons and about:debugging are privileged and cannot be opened
* about:about is now available for Firefox

Thus, the last version where ViewAbout will work is 56.

Standard:
about:
about:about
about:accounts
about:addons
about:buildconfig
about:cache (and related)
about:checkerboard
about:config
about:crashes
about:credits
about:debugging
about:devtools-toolbox
about:downloads
about:healthreport
about:home
about:license (generic Toolkit license)
about:logo
about:memory
about:mozilla
about:networking
about:newtab
about:performance
about:permissions
about:plugins
about:preferences
about:privatebrowsing
about:profiles
about:rights
about:robots
about:serviceworkers
about:sessionrestore
about:support
about:sync-log
about:sync-tabs
about:telemetry
about:webrtc
about:welcomeback

Related to other add-ons:
about:downthemall
about:me
about:tabs

Seemingly useless:
about:certerror
about:neterror

These windows can be closed using Ctrl (or Cmd)-w. Note that some about: menu options may not show up in applications that do not support them.

ViewAbout started initially from a need to view about:crashes on Thunderbird.
