Open the Web Console when a pop-up opens

Posted

Suppose I am working with a webpage and I have the console open.

Then, I click in an element, and the javascript code that handles the event decides to open a new window.

That window does not have the console open, so I miss some details of the http traffic, etc.

What I am doing now is to hit Ctrl+Shift+K as fast as I can, or use Fiddler.

But there must be a setting somewhere where I can say "Always open the console when a new window is open", Right?

I googled a bit, but I couldn't not find an answer.

Hi bcartolo, Not a problem. You can open the Web Console by first going to Tools > Web Developer Tools > Web Console

Then try Firegestures to customize this.

Question owner

The idea is that the webconsole should be open when the pop-up opens.

Even a mouse gesture is not fast enough, I would miss the first http request.

But thanks.
