I just downloaded the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, and downloaded as a seperate extension "Web Developer 0.8".
Let me just make a list... but please, just download it and see. You will be using this tool I assure you for a while to come.
A decent summary:
You can download it there, or just grab it by clicking the 'get new extensions' link on your extensions manager.
It really is a web developer tool bar, it took me a while to get used to having everything I needed at a mouseclick away, very nicely done.
I can see that it will take some time to get used to having these great tools right at hand -- I'm already habituated to doing it the hard way.
This really helps deal with browser issues in general, not of course the actual display problems, but the browser id'ing component of scripts, still sadly required for almost all advanced CSS I run.
True, the EditCss functionality is very possibly its #1 ability in my eyes.
As you say, LiveHttpHeaders is no doubt a really cool extension too...
For the sake of normal (non-webmaster) browsing, how do I turn it off to open the screen real-estate that the toolbar now occupies? I hope there's an easy way to turn it on and off. - LH
Great fast answer! I right-clicked on Web Developer and turned it right off by unchecking it in the
drop-down. Turning it back on is a little harder.
I had to r-click on the TOP Firefox toolbar, then I could check Web Developer back on again.
Thanks much! A really good tool. -LH
Now if there were only a way to turn on some sort of validator . . . ;)
My third button from the right *IS* the Validation button. It goes (from right) Options, View Source, Validation.
As for the "Page Info" button, that's just the same as Tools ¦ Page Info
Then there's a space, and at the far right of the toolbar are three more buttons:
Disable WD Toolbar
And my remark about validation was just an idea I had thumping around in the back of my head about a "live" validator that would automatically check a page and display a valid or invalid icon.
Sorry for any confusion; hope this helps clarify things a bit!
I was sort of confused when I counted three from the right and saw "validation". Now I see the little buttons on the far right. I hadn't noticed them before and at first thought the "?" button was a help button, not Page Info.
And btw, THIS page (the "compose reply message" page) does NOT get a check mark....
