Hello, I'm wanting to create a FireFox theme via Stylish. It's been over two years since I've done this and have basically forgot all rules / tags / names FireFox uses in CSS for Stylish. How can I inspect elements of the FireFox UI elements to get their names so I can make a theme? I was hoping by now there'd be some type of wiki of somesort to have all the CSS names of the FireFox UI elements or some examples making a FireFox theme with Stylish. Thanks.

The DOM Inspector (DOMi) has a menu item (Edit > Select Element By Click) and a toolbar button "Find a node to inspect by clicking on it" (left icon on the toolbar in the DOMi).

  • open the browser window in the DOMi (File > Inspect Chrome Document) and choose the first entry from the drop-down list.
  • click the "Find a node to inspect by clicking on it" button and use the keyboard (Alt Tab) or the Task bar to go back to the browser window (do not click in the browser window other than the title bar).
  • click that element with the mouse and keep the button pressed until you see a red border to indicate that the DOMi has located that element in the DOM tree.
