I am trying to get the DSID of a web page by typing "javascript:alert(document.cookie)" in the url bar. I am supposed to get a window with the desired output which works fine in chromium. It does nothing in firefox 7 though. Im using Ubuntu 11.10.

Thanks,

Tony

Hello Tony
Running javascript in the url bar is mostly disabled for security reasons. You can use the new feature called Scratchpad instead.
