An essential tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use this addons since I started HTML and Javascript programming, and now I'm developping Firefox extensions, this is a must-have.
But I don't know why it does not include a contextual menu item (in preference) like "Inspect context" or "Inspect this" addons.

Really great addon.

Great tool!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just started using this tool on a friends recommendation for editing styles in Stylish. Its the biggest time saver and headache reducer.

My only complaint is that when you are viewing "CSS style rules", you cannot right click or highlight and copy the rules. Please please please fix this. Its great that "property and value" are copyable because it save a lot of time but not being able to copy the rule is the biggest pain in the butt ever.

Great addon that I never needed until recently!!

This is an indispensable tool for me, I use it every day.

I would give it five stars if it refreshed automatically when the page it inspects is refreshed.

Is this something a mere mortal (who knows javascript) like me can do?

Thank You For This Plug-In Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used the DOM Inspector for some time now and would like to say Thank You for this plug-in. It has been a blessing to me as I have evolved in my role as a web developer.

Like the previous commenter, there was a time I didn't know the meaning DOM (Document Object Model). I can trace my computer roots back 1973 as a sophomore taking a Fortran class. I may not have owned my own company where I can hire people to KNOW things for me so I have learned to LEARN before criticizing somebody about something of which I know nothing. I did not know what DOM was until I needed/wanted to learn about this web developing related subject.

I would like to report a personal achievement using the DOM Inspector in straightening out the various javascript used on a client's site. I recently have been able to correct all the errors from "not well written code", "conflicting functions and variables", as well as the elimination of "depreciated code aspects".

The DOM Inspector has many more features than I use. This may be the result of my knowledge diffency rather than an overkill on the author's part. I sometimes use some of the features for possibly other than intended reasons... Like by turning image paths on it is quite easy to see if that ebay auction is stealing a client's image bandwidth or say when visiting paypal.com if the image paths are from paypal.com (bad) or a local directory (better - but not "good", could be lifted.). If I am suspecious enough I'll even check if the javascipt is changing the link names or desitinations. I also use DOM Inspector to examine other web sites. I like to browse the site structure of both sites I like and that of those I don't like. I like to see what of where I can improve as well as what things to avoid. Thank You for this plug-in.

I was using this inbuilt feature in seaMonkey.
It is nice to see DOM inspector in Firefox. It helped me analyse the structure of websites through browser itself.

Solution to the problem described by QuarkCZ is to uninstall DOM Inspector first, then remove two files called inspector.dll and inspector.xpt from C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components directory, finally installing DOM inspector again.

I just confirm FF 3.0.3 troubles - empty window shows and even Web developer plugin shows dialog, that DOM inspector is not installed :(
I love this plugin and am very sad, that I can't use it now :(

Having worked with Mozilla UI for a while, this is a MUST have for anyone who works with mozilla UI.
Great for debugging. I only wish the UI was fixed up a bit with this tool.
But other then that, GREAT tool.

Working with FF3: Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To work on Firefox's appearance, close all tabs then open DOM.

(not accurate because my FF is not in English):

File > Inspect Chrome of the document > Mozilla Firefox.

Worked fine in Firefox 3 for me this morning...you must have screwed up your installation somehow. This helped me solve an issue with a Stylish mod that Firebug was choking on.

Oh I'm sorry guys but this is a firefox 3.0 only compatible addon, it was ported here because it is not available in the advanced user options in the installer. Reinstall firefox and go to advanced user and check it off there and reinstall if you are using the 2.0.0.x series.

It really helps to step through the web page to see what each element is doing, particularly when using CSS formatting and Java scripts. Things get fuzzy in my memory of what we have done on our site and DOM inspector sorts it all out...

now with added extensionyness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Once came bundled with Firefox itself, now spun-off into its own extension. If you're a developer of anything remotely web-related, get this. It's the #1 tool for all of your debugging needs.
