Not seeing the changes live while editing is indeed annoying and often 
requested. This is covered in bug 815464 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=815464> and bug 1067318 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1067318> and those are 
prioritized <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=991806#c17>.
