Where did the simple CSS view go?

Posted

Until recently I could hit OPTION+SHIFT+Y in Firefox (desktop for Mac) and I'd be able to quickly view a webpage's CSS rules. I can't any longer. I'm not sure but I think this was a built-in tool from Firefox. Did this get dropped? Or moved? Where did this go?

Maybe... Chris Pederick's Web Developer Extension? I see that shortcut in the screen shot:

Unfortunately, that doesn't match any of the shortcuts for the built-in developer tools on this page, but maybe you can find an updated shortcut: https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Tools/Keyboard_shortcuts

If not, could it have been a feature of Firebug (or another add-on)?

It may not have been a native Firefox feature, but I do know that it wasn't Firebug. I'd experimented with that and found it too heavy handed for me. Whatever it was I discovered it around Spring 2011. Just can't recall if it was some kind of add-on or plug-in. In any event, the key stroke just stopped working altogether recently.
