Element Inspector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

@BarbieGirl (May 27, 2014) - if you have some basic skill or confidence then switching to ctrl-right-click or other buttons, isn't hard. You need to change one line in each of two files of the extension. Back up your profile first "just in case" though. Quick "Howto", as I don't know your technical level:

1) Expand (unzip) -> modify -> rezip the extension, or set the preference "extensions.alwaysUnpack" to true in "about:config" before installing it. Both of these methods let you work with the extension's actual expanded files.

2) The files you want are "\bootstrap.js" and "\content\overlay.js". Both of these short files have a line that looks like this:
if (!e.shiftKey || e.button != 2) return;
Translation: if the shift key isn't pressed or the right button isn't pressed, ignore it. So you can make your change here. For example:

if (!e.ctrlKey || e.button != 2) return;
(uses ctrl-right-click, tested, works)
if (!e.shiftKey || !e.ctrlKey || e.button != 4)
(uses ctrl-shift middle - or wheel - button, probably works!)

3) Restart Firefox

Element Inspector

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very good tool, especially for studying Firefox's own chrome. Extension description should highlight this feature as it isn't at all obvious. So far the best tool I've found that lets you study firefox UI styling from within Firefox itself. Working for me with FF30+.

One issue (minor): after shift-right-click on some Firefox chrome, the Inspector's topmost bar (the > horizontal > bar > showing > the > style > hierarchy) can't be focused, it goes black or blanks out before you can mouse to it or use it. Apart from that, brilliant for studying and fixing chrome and UI issues!

Suspend background tabs

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'd like to give this 6 stars not 5?

Very heavy tab user (Firefox v16 x64: waterfox version, 1000 - 2500 tabs, some suspended/background, some not), so extensions like BarTab and other tab unloaders are important to me.

This extension blew them away - background tabs take memory but don't slow the system down at all. Firefox is one hell of a lot more responsive, and memory use is a quarter or half what it was (8-10GB now 2-3GB) - I guess because it doesn't have to run code in the background from all those tabs or something though I don't really understand it fully.

Suspend/resume/hibernate etc (from other extensions like TabGroups Manager) are also much faster as well, firefox responds again in just a few seconds when these functions are used instead of freezing to process them.

I don't know how this plays for users whose tabs need to stay active in the background, but most of mine don't. I was blown away by the change to firefox when I used it.

Not something I usually say in reviews.

View Dependencies

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on!

Can we have basic filtering? For example enter a string to show items matching that string, and select dependency types to show (script, background, image)
