I am keeping development notes in readme.md files and on Windows (using Firefox) I can easily read these with the formatting shown by opening the file using FireFox. I have installed the addon "Markdown viewer webext" into Firefox.
Now I am moving development onto the RPi4 itself and it would be very handy if I could read the document there too, but the Chromium browser on RPi is not capable of doing that out of the box.
And if I go to the settings/extensions it does not find anything when searching for markdown.
So what are my alternatives to get rendering of md documents working on RPi4?
Installing Firefox? Is that even possible?
I found that one could install firefox-esr via the command line, so I did that.
Then I also installed the same markdown extension as is used on my Windows machine.
I also synced my FF account so I got all the bookmarks transferred etc.
But when I use the File/Open dialog to select the readme.md file it is NOT displayed as on Windows.
Instead FF offers to open it in a text editor, which is not what I want.
How can this be fixed on Raspbian?
