Hi All,

I'm using FireFox 12 on my Win-XP machine. I am unable to see the option 'View Page Source' for any of the pages. I tried both right clicking on the page + wandering around 'Tools/WebDeveloper', 'Tools/Options' and 'View/..' etc., but couldn't find a solution. Please help me !!

Thanks in advance.

@madperson: Thanks for that tip ( that info was new to me ), and that does work. But I don't know why it doesn't appear on right click. Anyways since this is an easier way, I think I have a solution now. Thanks a lot.

You should see them via these methods:

  • Firefox > Web Developer > Page Source
  • Tools > Web Developer > Page Source (Ctrl+U)
  • Right-click on a web page to open the context menu and select View Page Source

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