Bug 1580871 - Enable editor mode in DevEdition. r=Honza.

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: Developers who see the Scratchpad deprecation warning have no way of trying out the multiline editor mode that the documentation promotes as alternative. Editor mode has been on in Nightly for a while and is being used.
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: Yes
  • Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: Yes
  • Needs manual test from QE?: No
  • If yes, steps to reproduce:
  • List of other uplifts needed: Bug 9092380
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): Editor mode is a well-tested feature and so far few and only minor bugs have been found.
  • String changes made/needed:

Can you suggest a release note?

Let's try:

Write snippets of code and Iterate on them faster in the WebConsole with the new multi-line editor mode.
The Enter key acts as a regular key, adding new lines like in a regular editor, and evaluate with Ctrl + Enter (Cmd + Enter on OSX).

how does that look?

:lizzard, when a feature will be only available in dev edition, I assume updating is fine?
