Any chance you can show us your code, and specify a particular variable that is modifiable, and exactly how and when you are attempting to modify it when it fails?  At this point none of us have any idea where to start looking.

Same for me when using the simulator on a pic18f45k20, I tried to change a few variable to debug, when I use  the F7 to see what happen step by step, I try to change some variable like I did in the past but it wont let me.
I notice this issue with mplabx 5.15 and 5.20.
 
I read the that building in absolut mode could solve the issue but it won't let me used udata_acs
 
What am I doin wrong ?

I uninstalled mplabx 5.20 and all prior release and reinstalled 5.20 only and I am still having the same issue.
Whille stepping in the code using F7 I try to change a variable (not a FSR) but when I press enter to confirm the new value, the new value is overwriten by the previous one.
 
Also some value in the variable window are not showing, when I try to modify that value then it shows up with the previous value, I never had issue like that before.
 
Is this a know issue with mplabx or is it something I use the wrong way ?

I just saw something... interesting mr green: mr green
I was testing another issue and typing a value into a register in the watch window and it wasn't sticking and I thought:  "That's it!  That's what those guys in the forum are getting on about!" 
 
Turns out I was attempting to enter "ff" and it wouldn't stick.  As soon as I entered "0xff" it did stick.  Maybe that's the issue?

MPLABX 5.30, OS Ubuntu 19.10, Device: PIC16HV616. MPLABX Simulator.
I can't change any value of any variable in Watch or Variable Window (Tested in Value, Hex, Decimal, etc, with no luck), just SFR values.
