Restore links and forms details in Firefox 3’s Page Info

Firefox 3 features an overhauled Page Info dialog (Tools menu, Page Info) that while provides some valuable security and content information it also lacks some elements like the Links and Forms pages many users are already missing.

Links and Forms, a Firefox extension developed by Florian Queze, restores both pages to the Page Info dialog just as they were in Firefox 2 and previous versions.

You can get Links and Forms from Mozilla Add-ons. It’s still labeled as experimental so you will need a Mozilla Add-ons account to install it.

Thanks to CFox for the tip!

Bonus tip: If you use the Page Info dialog a lot, you may want to add a button to open it to the toolbar or bring the original Ctrl + I shortcut back. To get back both, install Page Info Button. Hope to see a status bar icon option soon.

  1. Taking these two off from FF3 was one of the MOST stupid things that Mozilla did IMHO

    DOMi is off < that’s cool < I can understand that.
    Links and Forms < as someone already mentioned here @ Mozilla Links, absurd!

  4. WHY did they remove them to begin with???

    WHAT were thery thinking???

    BAD mozilla! BAD, BAD, BAD mozilla …..

  5. Excellent. The form browser is much faster than using firebug (too many nested tables) for much of my debugging work. Did the FF team not realize the utility of this???

  6. It’s hard to believe that they would leave out such necessary tools to begin with!

    That’s like cutting off you’re arm saying tou don’t need it!

    Really stupid move …..

  7. Any timeline for taking this public, vs. experimental? I too find the Form browser much easier for what I do than FireBug, which is overkill for my work.
