Maybe look at the Scratchpad (Web Developer > Scratchpad;Shift+F4).

It is an XUL window with this chrome URL: chrome://browser/content/scratchpad.xul

Only an extension or toolbar button can open that window with this command: Scratchpad.openScratchpad();

Hmm... << Only an extension or toolbar button can open that window with this command: Scratchpad.openScratchpad(); >>

What language are extensions written in ? How would I go about adding a Toolbar-Button ?

Thanks...vm

Custom_toolbar_button
Thanks...vm
