Firefox support for the Designer

When Webflow first launched, we couldn't make the Designer work in Firefox due to a 16 year old bug in that browser that prevented us from styling scrollbars in a dark color: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77790

However, we now have some JavaScript-based workarounds to avoid rendering native scrollbars, and it should theoretically be possible to provide Firefox support (currently it you can open a project, but it's forced into read-only mode) if there's enough demand for it.

Note: Websites published in Webflow already work in Firefox - this idea refers only to making the main Designer application work inside of Firefox.

    To help us collect better intel on potential bugs and issues around using the Designer in Firefox, we’re now opening up experimental access to the Designer in all modern browsers. Read our update for more details on what to expect and how to help our research.

    This would be great. Chrome is my default browser but on occasion I need to test in Firefox. Would speed up testing / QA :)

    What about the brand new firefox that has been just launched? Could you please take a look a that bug again? May they fixed it. They say they rewrote most of the code for this new launched.

    Still waiting on this. Can't use Webflow designer until it's supported.

    I don't want to download Chrome only to make my website. I mostly use Edge for testing, so more browsers support would be much better.

    Until then, I will code by hand...

    BUMP!

    With the onset of security and privacy concerns surrounding chrome I think it's imperative to support Firefox.

     

    Please make this happen.

    Patiently waiting for more browser support before purchasing Webflow.

    I don't understand how this isn't a top priority. The second most popular web browser isn't supported... it makes Webflow look ridiculously unprofessional.

    This is definitely not a good look. Blocked as soon as I start my first project.

    I found Firefox is the best browser amongst all. while using FireFox browser you may have some issue, then simply contact err_spdy_protocol_error chrome. They will help you out. I have also taken help from them.

    Wings clipped before I can even get started.

    Blocking editing due to an inability to color the scrollbar seems like overkill. I would be okay with a degraded performance notice and a "do you wish to continue" type query.

    Sadly this knocks me out of being able to even consider Webflow at this time.

    Good day.  Still waiting for Firefox/designer support.

    Yes vote, to add Firefox and Edge as workable browsers for WebFlow. While we may see the world in Chrome...our clients see it many other ways and being able to test, edit and view in those other browsers is important.

    Firefox is my default browser. The designer working in Firefox would be awesome.

    This would be awesome! As someone who supports using small(er) non-profits that don't sell my data for profit, I try to use Firefox as often as possible and often get annoyed when I have to switch to Chrome. I'm looking forward to this.

    I'm hoping to see it work in FF too. Has the FF design team been informed about this issue? Is it still the same in FF Quantum? Why would they keep this as is for 16 years while just about everything else changes all the time?

    I would like to leave chrome. I like the webflow eye dropper extension though ...

    Scrolling using my mouse doesn't work in the designer (latest version of Firefox). Scrolling with the scrollbar is fine, though. Hopefully, this will get fixed soon.

    Please make it work for Firefox, I'm not moving to Chrome

    Thanks, much appreciated.
    Wouldn't it be easier though to simply call FF and tell them to finally fix
    that 16 year old bug???
    Hope for the best,
