Hello team I am not an developer but sometimes i use inspector to see if the 'get' requests are working properly. But for some time when i try to close the inspector after i am done ,it just stop and doesn't close. this makes to close the tab while doing something important. Please check this problem and give me some solution.

Can you give some specific steps to reliably reproduce the issue?

Does that problem occur every time you use the Inspector? (I get it randomly.) Your screenshot shows no X (what you call a cross); is that what happens now?

The screenshot also doesn't show the toolbar to select one of the tools in the developer tools. Does this also happen if you open the developer toolbox as a standalone window?

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or if userChrome.css/userContent.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the Default System theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
