One of the best tools. Works great under ff 10 and 11!
Just open .xpi as .zip, then open install.rdf and change maxVersion to any you wish:)
Please note that a fixed-up (and updated for FF 3.6) version of this extension is now aviailable as UnHide Fields 3 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/62826/)
Eg. Goto Google. Keep the cursor in the text box. Right Click -> Show Hidden Fields. It will show up the hidden fields for that page.
This addon would become very popular if two screenshots are put for it on how to use. First one, to keep the cursor on any form field and right click showing the option "Show Hidden Fields" and the second one which is already present as screenshot.
Very good tool, missing some features:
and a floating window that is always visible when you scroll down
I have Firefox 3 and it does work for me. This addon will show you the hidden fields on a page in a poorly designed window that pops up over the current page. To get the window to pop up you must find a control (I used a text box) and right click on it. In the context menu, it says "show hidden fields." Click on that and it gives a comprehensive list of all the hidden fields on the page and their values. If there are no visible text boxes, I don't think you can access the hidden fields window with this addon. Once the window is open, you can change them if you want allowing you to test your page. Interesting usage may be for security and robustness testing. Hidden fields are public and can be changed on a user's whim. This may cause unexpected problems for a website developer.
I use UnHide Fields all of the time.
When writing macros or scripts to simulate queries which are usually submitted through html forms, the visible fields are easy to simulate because... well they are visible. Some queries will not work without simulating the hidden fields. Discovering these hidden fields requires some sort of research. UnHide Fields aids in this research.
The majorsuggestions I have for making UnHide Fields more comprehensive and useful are:
1. Display all form fields, method, action, and all input types. This would enhance simulating changes to visible fields without recourse to other tools. Also, it would facilitate writing macros and scripts which need the additional information.
2. Put title bar on the display so that it can be moved.
By displaying all form fields and making the display moveable, UnHide Fields would become a one stop tool for the form information I use for my form simulating sripts and maros.
To fix: disable (comment out) the call to "uh_ShowHidden(); " on line 155 of unhide.js
Like the idea, but doesn't work for me in 3.x. Haven't tried it in another version.
What is supposed to pop up? I have gone to several pages I know have hidden fields and nothing happens.
Apologies if this is a duplicate:
This is a web developer tool for displaying hidden HTML form fields. (If you don't know what an hidden form field is, this tool isn't for you.)
From what I can tell, you need to right-click on a visible form field for this tool to work. A context-menu will appear that allows you to Show hidden Fields.
It's a web developer tool for displaying hidden HTML form fields. (If you don't know what hidden form fields are, you don't need this tool. :)
From what I can tell, right-click on a visible form field and you'll have a context menu choice to Show hidden Fields.
Your explanation as too what this extension does is too vague.
Please expand on what it actuallly does or where i can benefit from it would be helpful.
