I right clicked on a web page and apparently activated a "node". Now, I have dimming and a long bar of "inspector options" above status bar. How to delete?

There is a long line of displays at the bottom of the Firefox screen, all starting with "div#" or "iframe.rr" or "html" or "body" --- at the far right is a rectangular box with the word "Style" and an "x" right beside it. The x will not close this bar even though it says "close inspector."

On the far left of the bothersome string is a gear/sprocket icon that is for "inspector options" which, when clicked, offers "dim the node" or "show node info." I don't want a "node" or even know what it is. I would just like this display bar along the bottom of the Firefox page to be gone.

Chosen solution

There should be a close X at the far right on the Inspector bar to close the Inspector bar.

If you can't close the bar then try to close and restart Firefox.

The "x" would not close it, but shutting down Firefox and restarting did the trick.

Thanks!

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.
