I am primarily a Firefox add-on developer these days. My main areas of expertise is everything Mozilla-related (XUL, JavaScript, XULRunner etc.), web technologies (HTML5, CSS etc.), web application security, Perl, Python. Some C++, Java and PHP is also doable but I am by no means an expert here.

comment In Firefox, what exactly does “Reset Firefox” do?
@Coldblackice: Yes, that's what it does - it creates a new profile and only copies the essential things over. Any breakage or slowness stays in the old profile.

comment Firefox extensions are broken
Yes, no extensions.sqlite sounds like something that would cause such issues. No idea about the root cause however. How about going to about:config and changing extensions.logging.enabled preference to true? The Add-ons Manager will log some additional information to the Error Console (press Ctrl-Shift-J to open it) next time you try to install an extension - it might explain what is going wrong.

comment How to disable right click on certain websites
@Lamb: Wow, that script is horrible. When was it written, in the 90s? For reference: proper solution would be document.addEventListener("contextmenu", function(event) {event.preventDefault();}, false);
